Hello Everyone. My name is Emanuel Gomez and I am a fitness professional. Fitness is not only my career but its my life. This may sound cliché to many but when you do your job with passion and love it deems impossible to separate the two.
My experience all starts in High School. Me being the captain of my HS football team I enjoyed encouraging my teammates and helping them get better. After my academic sports career I went on to teach martial arts in several different schools and in a community center. I found that teaching and guiding people to get in better health was very satisfying but not as much as helping someone personally. This is where I found myself pursuing my career as a personal training. I worked in New York Sports Club and in Equinox where I gained plenty of experience working with clients of all sorts of health backgrounds. Equinox was where my career as a personal trainer was propelled to the next level. The amount of education that they provided equipped me to become confident and successful in my career. Now I am an independent trainer still pushing myself further so that I can be the best fitness professional that I can be.
I attended the University at Buffalo where I received a BA in Psychology. I believe being a Psychology major definitely helps when training many clients. I'm able to handle many personalities which I think is essential in this field because not everyone is the same -- not physically nor mentally. Personal trainers have to develop individualized fitness programs for each client, but it is also important to consider their mental health as well. When I develop a program I make sure that their physical goals closely corresponds to their mental fitness.
I am NASM certified (National Academy of Sports Medicine), Precision Nutrition certified and Pre and Post natal certified.
I place a lot of attention on movement which I think is key to becoming healthier.
I am also a blogger. I blog about exercises, my experience, motivational stories, tips, and nutrition.
My favorite client story
One of my favorite client stories is convincing one of my clients that training actually works. She was super reluctant with training and believing that every trainer was pretty much the same. She suffers from an illness that hinders her from pushing herself to the extreme. When we first started training she was extremely careful with every particulate movement being afraid that her illness might cause her body to flare up. As time went on our training program helped her become stronger and became more aware of her body. Part of her problem was that she had difficulties knowing how far she can push herself due to pain. Now she enters the gym with confidence, does her work outs with no problem and follows her fitness program.
My favorite exercise
My favorite 2 exercises are squats and pull ups
My favorite quote
"We are part of this universe; we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us."
Neil Degrasse Tyson
My training philosophy
My training philosophy is to train every movement with awareness.
My training experience
My training experience is very rich. I train a variety of people from all ages and capabilities. I am extremely confident in my skill set due to the abundance of education I've received throughout my training career and through continuing education.

I have been training with Emmanuel for the past eight months. I must admit, working out has always been an intimidating situation for me. I’m one of those who has enrolled in the gym on multiple occasions and finishes wasting the money because never uses the membership. However, this time I have had an awesome experience. Now working out is something that I really enjoy thanks to Emmanuel. He is motivating, encouraging and put into the sessions enough challenge as to help me reach my training objectives. After eight months training with him, I feel and look better. I’m excited about my body changes. I now look in better shape and toned than eight months ago when I stated training. I’m sooooo happy with the results I have accomplished so far. Something that I really like is that Emmanuel not only focuses on planning nice and effective exercise routines, but he also helps me to follow a healthy nutrition regimen. I’m very glad a friend of mine, who also trains with Emmanuel, introduced me to him and I decided to train myself. It has been the best decision I have made. It has literately changed my appearance and lifestyle.
