    Fernando has been my trainer for about 5-6 months now and I could not be happier with the progress that I’ve made because of him. He truly listens to your fitness goals and creates workouts that push you to achieve them. Fernando comes up with creative solutions so no workout is the same. I have never once felt I couldn’t handle a workout he has given me. He understands what you can handle and will always be there to spot you. He takes his sessions seriously, but he also knows how to make you laugh. I always leave my sessions feeling accomplished and smiling. Fernando is a very caring person and it truly shows in the way he treats his clients. I’m very thankful to have him as my trainer.

    Fernando has been my personal trainer for over a month and 1/2 when I walked into the gym from day one I knew I couldn't do it on my own that's when I decided to hire a personal trainer and to be honest he's been the best trainer so far! he is always focus on getting his clients to achieve their goals.on the first day we established a workout plan,he makes sure you as a client stay on track from day one.there is not a day that goes to waste when training with him, he's always on time,and listens to any concerns you may have,he's just not a trainer he's like a friend to his clients always staying on his processional level.he is great with working with people schedule.he keeps it real when it comes to being realistic about the time you spend training as well as maintaining your weight with the proper food/nutrition. What is even a plus is that if you need to contact him he is very good at responding questions as well as concerns. Another thing that I like about his training skills is that he gets you to try new gym equipment,he makes sure you have options when it comes to getting in shape. I really recommend him you would not regret it!! He makes the workout routine fun and leave you wanting to keep training even more.. it's definitely worth it!!

    Fernando has been my trainer for a couple of months now and so far I have no complaints. He is the best trainer I have ever had. He listens to your goals and knows exactly how to get you there by challenging you through each session. His focus and passion motivates you to keep going. You'll never have a dull moment with him as your trainer. Fernando is patient, knowledgeable, professional, listens to you, communicates well, motivates you, and makes you feel comfortable. All very important things to have in a personal trainer. You won't be disappointed with Fernando as your trainer!

    I've had many trainers over the years and Fernando is one of the best. He comes up with unique workouts that are constantly changing, so our sessions never get boring. After every training session, I walk out of the gym feeling sore, which is exactly what I want. Not only are his workouts intense, but he explains what muscles are being used, and why it's important. He'll also mention what I should do when I'm at the gym not training with him. He truly listened to what my goal was for my body and within weeks I saw my body improving to my specific needs.
    I highly recommend Fernando to anyone that wants to improve their physical health.

    I have been training with Fernando for almost a year. He is a wonderful trainer and person. There were times I was going through rough family situations and he was able to help me push past it and continue working out with motivation. Fernando is very knowledgeable and knows just when to push you as well as knowing when you are not ready for that next step. Over the years I have gotten out of shape from my old playing weight. I played collegiate soccer and softball in college on a scholarship and Fernando knows exactly what I need to get me back into shape. He has pushed me to help me reach my goals and the only this I wish is that I could afford more sessions to reach my goals even faster. I suggest you get him as your trainer. I know you will not be disappointed in Fernando!
