About Maxwell

My name is Maxwell Faulkner and I AM the trainer for you! I am a graduate from Purdue University West Lafayette, IN where I received a Bachelors of Science with a degree in Applied Exercise and Health/Kinesiology. I originally went into the health field when I decided I wanted to help childhood obesity. Since obesity continues to grow in the United States (70% of the nation) I wanted to stop this trend by teaching kids why exercise, proper nutrition, and maintaining stress levels are important to anyone's lifestyle. I first started personal training at Purdue University's Co-Rec where I trained people, taught group exercise classes, and taught a cancer wellness class. Once I moved to California, I became a trainer for 24 Hour Fitness and LA Fitness for 2 years. Over the past 5 years I have trained children, adolescents, adults, elderly, and people with disabilities, injuries, and serious health conditions. I also was a Physical Education Teacher for 3 years in Los Angeles, CA where I taught children the fundamentals of fitness and exercise. The kids were shocked at first because they thought PE was just for sports, but instead I showed them that it was life rather then a game. PE was meant to teach you how to live your best life! Throughout those 3 years, I helped children who didn't know what exercise even was, to reaching their fitness goals. Our Muscular Strength and Endurance tests had a 93% passing rate. I trained kids who couldn't even rep out 1 push up to 40 push-ups in a span of a few months. There is one particular kid I will always remember that I never gave up on. He was a morbidly obese child with asthma at the age of 11 years old. Everyday he would come up to me and say "I want to workout Mr. Faulkner. Lets run the mile. Lets do push-ups!" With his incredible determination and dedication, he lost 20 lbs in 5 months and didn't need to use his inhaler anymore! If he can do it, so can you! I also was a Head Varsity Women's Basketball Coach at Math and Science College Prep Academy where I taught girls that didn't even understand how to dribble a basketball, to becoming a championship team. We won the CIF Division 5 LA City-Sectional Championship in 2018 and were Runner-Up in 2019. I also won Division 5 Women's Basketball Coach of the year. I love working with athletes! Overall, my specialties include: WEIGHTLOSS, SPORTS CONDITIONING, AGILITY TRAINING, CARDIOVASCULAR CONDITIONING, MUSCULAR STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE TRAINING, FLEXIBILITY TRAINING, INJURY PREVENTION AND REHAB, and more! If you are looking for a Fitness Professional that is motivating, caring, able to push you to your limits, and will stop at nothing to help you reach your goals, I am the trainer for you!
