Ryan is an exceptional trainer and I know this because I hired him to work with my uncle Bill. My uncle finished with his allotted physical therapy and wanted to continue working with someone to maintain his strength after a fall. I was very impressed with Ryan when I was trying to determine if he was the right fit. He asked several questions making sure that he could safely and effectively train Bill. Then he assessed Bill to see where to begin. They have been working together for several months now and Bill continues to get stronger and healthier. Bill really enjoys Ryan and Ryan seems to intuitively know the right amount of "push" to give him. Ryan is a problem solver, very encouraging, and brings a great deal of compassion to a challenging situation. So, if you are looking for a trainer who will take the time to figure out where you are at, meet you there, and help you become a better version of yourself through encouragement and targeted interventions, look no further.

My career was taking off but I didn’t have the personal or wellness practices in place to be at my best. This all changed when I met Sylvia. Now, I’ve lost 20 pounds, I’m the healthiest version of myself, I’m more confident and comfortable with my body than ever before, my eating and wellness habits have changed, and I know there is no way in hell I’ll ever turn back. I guarantee she will change your life. (Founder & CEO of Wonder Over Worry & The Bold Academy, Creator at The World We Want, Writer at Fast Company)

My work stands out from others because I take the time to find out what your goals are and design a plan specifically for you. You can't get that kind of attention In large groups or boot camps. I love being able to help people get the most out of their workouts. So many times people think they are doing the right thing, but are in fact doing more harm than good. My strength is to customize workouts for clients that fit their goals and lifestyle.

Hey Friends!

I train out of a semi-private gym in Santa Monica on Ocean Front Walk. Additionally, the original muscle beach is in the front yard and provides numerous training opportunities that can't be duplicated in a gym setting.

My approach to training is tailored for your individual needs. Everybody is designed differently and I don't believe in a "one routine fits all" approach to helping you reach your goals. My background is in sports and entertainment, including stunt work. I've helped leading actors transform their bodies for roles. I've also helped people work through health challenges including Lupus and MS. Chances are I know just what it takes to meet and exceed your goals, but if I'm not the right pro for the job I'll be upfront with you and refer you to one of my industry colleagues. My approach to personal training puts an emphasis on the chemistry of both parties involved. I'm not a drill sergeant. I do expect your full effort and also aim to make our time together something you'll look forward to.

I offer a free orientation to discuss goals/fitness experience etc. Feel free to message me if you'd like to take advantage of that. Otherwise, if you're ready to get started right away, let's do it!

10 Years of Natural Bodybuilding and many conversations with inquiring friends and family members later I decided to finally pursue Personal Training. I would often teach people in person proper technique, give them training programs, and help them reach their goals, simply because I loved helping others. It is my goal to be able to provide this service to many others and ultimately allow them to thrive in fitness and health for the rest of their years!

There is no single type of student I've worked with.

Age Range: from 15-50+

Weight Range: from 110-350lbs+

Height Range: from 5'2"-6'5"

Athletic Experience: None - Experience Athlete

I've worked with people that fall within that spectrum and have seen amazing results in the different, customized workout programs, specifically tailored to their individual needs.

If you're looking to hire an expert make sure they are one that's committed to contributing to your overall knowledge, and will help build your programs specifically to you. It's easy for personal trainers to give each client the same workout template and call it day, however this ignores the facts that each student is different, has different limitations, and different abilities. It is in the individualized programs that you will see a better balance overall in muscular symmetry and development. You should also go into it with at least a small base of knowledge, this way you can pick up the training much quicker.

For anyone newly starting out I always recommend this online course that teaches those basics of some diet tips, muscle groups, and basic workouts to train them. It's an amazing resources for all beginners!

Had Cornelia as a PT for a week during the holidays. And I must admit (for one that doesn’t really enjoy training) I had the best time! We were a group of people and she set the program so that everyone could do it. Which was really great since we weren’t all on the same level. highly recommend training with her!

Angie is hands down the best trainer I've ever had. I started seeing her a couple months ago after a serious sports injury to help strengthen/regain my muscles. She respected my limits and made sure to always keep the workouts fun and fresh. Angie also cares to get to know you beyond your fitness goals which is always appreciated. Would definitely recommend booking her!!! Seriously - book her now ;)
