Alberto proves that being a wonderful human being is the key to being a great trainer and fitness coach. I've worked with him since October 2012, and I've significantly increased strength in my arms, legs, back and core. Most importantly, Alberto has significant experience in fitness regimens outside of traditional strength training, including boxing, tai chi and martial arts. This additional experience has helped me to reduce my stress levels, and added variety to my training routine. For all of these reasons, I'm pleased to offer Alberto my highest level of personal recommendation.

Alberto is an excellent trainer, especially at my current level of physical activity. He paces me with hard exercises, pushing as needed and giving me feedback to nudge me that much further with each rep and set.

I enjoyed working with him because even though the workouts were challenging they were always fun and different. Alberto had a great attitude, always positive, completely focused, and very knowledgeable. I learned that my training wasn’t just in the gym and what I learned from him could also be applied to the rest of my life. He never accepted excuses but was flexible enough to adjust his programs to fit my forever changing goals. He was always willing to answer questions and was able to work with me and make it work for my schedule.


I've been working with Alberto for a few weeks and he's been fantastic. Arrives on time every time (6:30am) at my home and gives me challenging, well balanced workouts. I've worked with a few trainers in the past and I've found Alberto to be knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend.
