My motivation and pride are based on the ability to show clients how to reach their potential in emotional and physical fitness. This respect for one’s body is an essential lesson that I share with everyone. I am punctual and assertive and base my lessons on the energy that is brought to our sessions. Knowing your behavior outside of the gym is just as important to me to help you reach your optimal goals. I have a great desire to positively contribute to my community as a healthcare, lifestyle, and fitness coach. My personal training experience fulfills my commitment to my community and is one of the reasons that I have pursued a career in weight training, flexibility, yoga and the healing profession. I served in the Navy aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71 and this experience has created a basic awareness of personal fitness which shaped my conscious way of approaching life. Physical health is mental health. One of my best clients, a retired New York City school teacher who has always had an appetite for learning, needed a trainer after a leg injury. For years as my client, she would share her life lessons and knowledge with me as we trained. This trust created a free exchange of ideas and growth for both of us. My monistic approach to training which combines strength training lessons to link body and mind has proven results of increased flexibility, enhanced moods, and positive outlook on life. Each lesson is an individualized process and continual adjustment as we grow together. We develop a program that resonates with your values and lifestyle with proven results.
Hollywood/WeHo/East Hollywood are my stomping grounds. Let me know if you have an apartment gym or open space to train.
My favorite client story
I trained a client who had chronic tightness in her back and lower ribcage. I put her through an extensive stretching routine and gave her homework. A year later, she insisted that she pay me more per session because her back issues were virtually gone.
My favorite exercise
I don't have a single favorite exercise, but I have a favorite tool to use is the Bosu. I'm big on balance and that is one thing I include in every one of my routines. The Bosu is such a great tool to strengthen the hip, lower leg and the foot.

Oshay Walker is an excellent trainer. He is kind, caring and encourages me with his smile. He is always on time, well organized, very creative and makes sure the excercises meet my needs. As an older client, I want to do the most I'm able without getting hurt. I know that he is always watching my reactions to his demands and receptive to changes my body might need. I am in much better shape and know he is looking out for me to excel. Most of all, he's patient and I trust him!
Oshay is an outstanding trainer who has helped me to reinvest in my health, fitness, and overall well-being. I have been working with him for nearly a year — after not having exercised for the past decade since having 2 kids — and it’s made a huge difference in my life. Oshay designs smart, balanced, and responsive weekly programs that are tailored for me to develop greater strength, focus, and flexibility. His particular expertise in yoga and knowledge of ballet really appealed to me as a former dancer, and continues to shape our work together. Oshay is an inspiring teacher and an absolute pleasure to work with. He is exactly what I was hoping to find in a personal trainer.
Oshay has been an incredible trainer! I have been working for him for 6 months and the results motivate me every day. I'm 25 lbs down but more importantly I feel healthier, more active, and energized in my day to day. Oshay focuses on mind & body - incorporating breathing, strength training, balance and flexibility.
Oshay offers incredibly balanced workouts combining weight training, flexibility, balance, breathing and amazing guidance to create a healthy relationship between the body and mind. He is professional and so easy to work with. I love that he is versed in many different techniques. Great time and delivers results
Oshay is an amazing trainer. Very aware and attentive during each session. He clearly took time to create a regimen that would work for me. Also - very personable which makes the training experience altogether better.
Oshay is a very knowledgable trainer. His experience in yoga and ballet has helped my flexibility and he doesn't let me slack off which is invaluable. He's very friendly and I highly recommend utilizing him to reach your fitness goals
