“I trained with Julio for three months and from our very first meeting I was impressed and pleased. What I think I valued most and noticed right away when I met Julio was his knowledge about what he is doing – and his professional attitude and enthusiasm. I also liked that he spent a lot of time at the start to get to know about my current physical condition and my personal training goals. Each time we met Julio was focused on the training he was giving me. For me the most surprising thing was that once I started training with Julio I began to go to the gym four times a week! Up until then I was lucky to go more than two or three times a week. I started doing this without really planning to do it. What I think had happened was that for the first time I felt I had a training plan that would be helpful for me. It’s been more than two months since I’ve trained with Julio and I have kept up this schedule of going to the gym four times a week.”
Goals: Improve overall health, body fat reduction, address muscle imbalances

“Julio unites today’s exercise science with eternal principles of movement, balance and harmony, and in doing so has created a training method that’s as unique as Julio himself. He worked with me to identify my own health goals, and suggested options I hadn’t considered. He helped tailor some workouts to ensure that I wasn’t overworking some areas and underworking others; I favor a good run, so Julio added a pre-run and post-run routine to balance out the overall affect and impact. In the end, I am healthier today than I was when I started training with Julio. And as importantly, I’m better equipped to understand my body’s needs, and to address them in sustainable, healthy ways.”
Goals: Increase lean body mass, upper body strength, body fat reduction.

“Julio is amazing. Though, I’ve never had a personal trainer before; I’ve been around others in gyms. Others try to be your friend, while Julio is extremely personable his goal is to make you work harder and better. The routine vary almost all the time shocking my muscles and just when I think that they’ve adapted – I’m sore the next morning. He is always careful of pushing the fatigue envelop without compromising individual tolerance levels or safety. His sessions are probably the best investment I’ve made in 2007.

“Julio is an unusually knowledgeable and attentive trainer. He is mindful of injuries, respectful of limits and attends to feedback – even the most casual, offhand comments – by modifying exercises to suit his clients’ individual needs. His workouts are fun, varied and, best of all, bring results. After just six workouts, I’m noticeably stronger, more flexible, free of chronic pain and may be able to avoid a hip replacement. This guy is very, very good — and he clearly likes his work.I highly recommend him!
Goals: Trim & tone lean body mass, body fat reduction, Core strength & conditioning, Improve athleticism for recreational sports & competitions.

“Julio is a motivating, charismatic, and highly knowledgeable trainer. His workouts aren’t easy, but the dividends are immense. I’m astounded by my body’s capabilities after just 12 weeks of training with him – I’m running eight-minute miles now…this from the girl who could barely manage to jog 6 mph three months ago. Every time my body started to adapt to the exercises, Julio designed a new workout for me, and when I was tempted to ease up, he wouldn’t let me quit. He’s a brilliant trainer who truly wants his clients to succeed. He exudes passion for healthful living and fitness (I think his photos make that clear!), but his clients are really the ones who benefit. My holiday bonus is going right to him!!
Goal: Body fat reduction, increase strength, left hip weakness, overall health

‘Hello Julio, On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate you as a 10+++ trainer. Your training program and one-on-one sessions are beyond my expectations as I’ve worked with personal trainers in the past.
What sets you apart from other trainers that I have worked with is your focus on me as an individual and your ability to customize a program to meet my personal goals. Your focus during each training session is phenomenal – as if you know what I’m feeling and thinking – thereby motivating me every second – it is truly exceptional as is your expertise as a trainer.
You are so knowledgeable and your passion for training and helping me to meet my personal goals is so evident – inspiring and motivating! From the very first meeting with you, you impressed me because you truly listened to me and not only understood my goals, but you understood the “why” behind my goals. You asked questions and listened to really understand where I was coming from. Because you really understand me – where I’ve been and where I’d like to be – you have set forth a program to help me not only achieve my goals but to exceed them, as I’m seeing.
As we train, you continue to gather feedback from me each training session to build to the next. You also always answer my questions and provide so much encouragement, especially as I’m breaking through and going to the next level of training. Your encouragement during each session and between is just huge!
I have recommended you to many friends as they’ve seen the results of our training together and wanted to know what I was doing.
Thanks for everything!

“I have been consistently working for the past 3 years trying my best to get my body in top form. I had lost weight but was not gaining any muscle definition and was lost on where to go next. I found the weight room at my gym very intimidating and did not even know where to begin using weights. I decided to take a leap and sign up for a few sessions with Julio. That decision was one of the best I have ever made. Since training with Julio he has transformed my body and taught to maximize every minute of my workout. Once I learned how to work out effectively, my body and stamina began to change, with each session I became stronger and more confident The best part was that the workouts were fun and challenging, I was actually working out with a smile on my face.
Now I have other members at my gym asking me how I got in such great shape, and I tell them I owe it all to Julio!

I started training at the gym with a friend of mine about a year ago. We trained very had but had few and slow results. Then we met Julio and started training with him. It was like night and day. I have made more improvements in stamina, max weight and overall strength and power in one month with Julio than I made in a whole year on my own. He really knows how to keep you motivated and on track. Best of all makes it easy to follow. He started me on a meal plan and a set workout routine. I started feeling the difference after our second session. Perhaps the best thing about Julio is that he’s just a great guy! He’s not just a trainer he’s your friend! He’s always happy to see you and if you run into him on the street he makes sure to come over and say hello and see how your doing. I can’t see a better person to keep anyone more focused, motivated, and dedicated to achieving his or her goals! Julio is truly the best!
