Testimonies

Farzeh T. I trained with Hector earlier this year for 3 straight months. I can't say enough about his knowledge about training and nutrition, his professionalism and straight out time he put for me to achieve my goals. I dropped close to 8 percent body fat in 3 months! I can do do ten unassisted pull ups and over thirty push ups in one sitting thanks to him. These are tangible goals that I set with him in the beginning. He tracked my progress weekly and pushed me to bring my very best effort every time. Seeing my numbers improve kept me motivated to continue. With a bit of will power and his guidance you can set goals and achieve them. It doesn't matter where you are with your body. As long as you're consistent, you will see results.

Miguel R. If you're looking to get serious results and want an amazing trainer, Hector is the person to see! I have been training with him for 5 months, and lost 40 lbs. I learned how to eat properly, even though I am a Chef, how to train at the gym, and how to improve my body and fitness. Hector cares about his clients and takes the time to help and support you through your new lifestyle. He puts together customized training depending on your needs, wants and body type. Every workout with him is different and fun. He challenges my body and the results have been amazing. He showed me that my body really can do things that I never thought it could.  I have worked with other trainers in the past, but Hector has a way where he understands the body and can push it to its limits. I am beyond appreciative for the motivation and support that I  have received from him. I am so much happier in my life, my health has improved and I can truly thank Hector for helping me get there. He checks in with me to make sure that I am feeling ok, doing my homework at the gym, eating properly and maintaining my health, all while under my doctors supervision. Try out Get Active!  You will not regret coming, just maybe not coming sooner!!  They also have great classes such as surfset and boot camp which are super fun and different than anything else I have tried. I really like the surfset, where you workout on these special surfboards- working your core, balance, and body. It is fun, interactive and unique to Get Active.

Kaylee S. I've had a lifelong struggle with weight; in 2013, I made it a New Years Resolution to cast off insecurity and finally lose the weight. I dropped almost 60 lbs and have successfully kept it off. Despite all of this, I wanted to see more toning progress. Over the summer, I came to Julie with a picture of Sarah Connor in my hands and said, "Make me look like this!" Over the course of the last few months, my body has been changing in ways I didn't even think possible. Through Julie's encouragement, can-do attitude and specific routine plans, she has helped me see progress that I would never have imagined three years ago.  If you need an extra push or someone to be accountable to to make sure you reach your goals, look no further than Julie Powers. She will make you feel like you can do anything and that it's okay to have minor setbacks because of life. The attitude you have about fitness is everything and Julie's positive attitude definitely offers reassurance that you will reach your goals.

Helen K. Who knew that as a senior I would be healthier, more knowledgeable about proper nutrition, and stronger than ever in my life? Hector did. I was only seeking help to deal with a strange pain in my leg, which he addressed successfully during my first session, but I continue because Hector stretches my confidence about what I am capable of doing. . . and I have fun doing it! The iGetActive Gym is a perfect venue for this multidimensional, individualized training. I have moved from doing miscellaneous exercises to using strategic combinations of stretching, cardio, and muscle-building activities to correct imbalances that I didn't even know that I had, and to move me toward functional goals. Combine these with Hector's nutritional coaching, and I am ready for anything!

Adolph G. I have been training with Julie Powers for over 16 months! She has been a key success to my new fit lifestyle: lower blood pressure, 30 lbs. weight loss, increased the strength for my core, back, legs and my favorite biceps-triceps-deltoid! Each week I am continuing to be challenged by my trainer and I am amazed how I am continuing to excel. I consider my trainer one of my dearest friends.
