Reuben WeinerVerified 6 Reviews
My name is Reuben Weiner. I am a former Eco Tour Guide who struggled with my weight my entire life. I could never sustain a healthy diet despite being someone who was very active both in what I did for work and being a regular at the gym. During covid, the gym went away and my weight and mental health took a turn for the worst. A year and 55lbs later, I became a personal trainer because of that journey. I became keenly aware of how many people were trying to take the same journey as I did and were failing, and I want to change that narrative. I am not your drill sergeant tough love trainer. I am someone who has worked with people from all walks of life and someone who will be supportive, patient, and open minded about your plan of attack. In a typical session, we start with a light warm up, go into our main workout, and take our time to cool down at the end. I place a HUGE emphasis on education because my goal is not only to help you hit your goals but also to provide you with the knowledge to sustain your success!!!
My favorite client story
I have a 71 year old client who started with me back in September. He wasn’t in bad shape, but he was someone who was weary of weights and wanted to keep it light. We progressed from resistance band and light body weight work to deadlifting 100lbs in 6 months!!!
My favorite exercise
I’m a huge fan of Bulgarian split squats. It’s an exercise that requires you to work on balance, core strength, and can be made into a heavy lift.

I am a 42 year old woman who wants to continue on my health and wellness journey. However, consistency is somthing I really struggle with, I usually start strong and fall off after a couple of weeks. I started working with Ruben this past November and he talked to me about my goals and suggested powerlifting to me, honestly I thought he was crazy at first, me a 42 year old woman powerlifting. After some research, and the need to find something I could stick with, I said yes! The program that Ruben made me, his passion for fitness and his encouragement has helped me to stay consistent, build strength and see gains. He made a program tailored to my body type and he took the time to figure out what areas I really needed to gain strength in. I would highly recommend Ruben for personal training, hes professional, passionate and knowledgeable in what he does.
A yr and half ago, year ago I had to have neurological surgery. I was advised, after I was cleared, to work with a trainer to help me recover completely all muscles and joints that were affected before and after the surgery. Reuben knew what would work to be able to be at my best and most comfortable and safest while working out. He was right.. He was exactly who I needed to get me back to, actually better than I was. Last spring and almost all of the summer , I couldn't garden. I'm back doing gardening landscaping and everything is fine.
Reuben was fantastic at helping me start and continue my fitness path. He’s spent a considerable amount of time listening to my goals, eating habits, and areas of pain to create a substantive workout and dietary plan that was individual for me. I highly recommend anyone searching for a quality and dedicated trainer to look no further than Reuben. Very excited to continue along my fitness path with Reuben as my trainer.
Reuben is an awesome Trainer who really knows his craft. Very well educated about fitness and always Leads By Example.
I have never been one to really like working out or going to the gym especially not with personal trainers because I always felt like they were so pushy and mean and would not listen to what I wanted. After meeting Reuben my attitude has really changed. Since working with Reuben he has shown me nothing but respect whether that’s with my request or my time and he not only showed me more workouts to do he was actually able to educate me on why certain workouts were better than the other or exactly what muscles were being targeted at what time which was so helpful so that on the days I worked out on my own I was not lost on what to do. If you are looking for someone who will not only provide you the results you’re looking for but actually respect you as a client Reuben is a great choice!
This is my first time with a trainer and he has been extremely patient with me, and encourages me to reach my goals!
