Javier is a highly skilled professional in the fields of nutrition and motivational coaching. With a deep understanding of the principles of nutrition and a passion for helping clients transform their lives, Javier excels at creating strong rapport and fostering personal relationships with his clients. By building trust and understanding, Javier is able to establish a solid foundation for effective guidance and support. I've been able to lose 25 pounds with Javiers guidance and the weight keeps coming off.

Javier was flexible with changes in scheduling. He was always on time. His instruction challenged me for physical workouts. And his guidance in nutrition and food/life changes worked in getting me to lose weight.

My goal was to build muscle and keep my weight steady while being motivated to change my diet. Javier has helped me do that for almost three years now and he is really fun to be around. A motivating while not overbearing presence. I look forward to every one of our sessions and they have definitely improved my physique and confidence. So grateful to have found Javier and I know you will be, too!

If you’re serious about loosing weight you should work with Javier. There is no trainer better suited to support you with nutrition information and exercise plans tailored to your level of fitness. When I started working with Javier I struggled to complete basic exercises. He helped me build my fitness from the ground up and never making me feel embarrassed or ashamed for having a low level of fitness (which was my greatest fear about working with a trainer). We’ve been working together about 8 months now and I’m three quarters of the way to my goal weight. A huge part of my success is due to Javier's coaching, which has kept me honest and motivated to continually push myself. He's an attentive listener and follows up on questions posed in previous sessions. His professionalism is only matched by his personality -- which keeps sessions fun even when the exercises are really tough. I'd recommend working with Javier to anyone on a weight loss journey.

Javier customizes a plan just for you based on your goals and level of commitment. Attentive listening, thoughtful planning, and expert knowledge of nutrition, fitness, and overall health make Javier the ideal coach. With every training session I learn something new every time I see him that helps me achieve greater results. It’s time and money well spent!

Being healthy is more than a number on the scale... it's a state of mind. Javier listened to what my goals were. He consistently changes the workouts so they are challenging but fun. They also keep me motivated and on track with my fitness objectives. I've never been a heavy person but seeing a personal trainer/wellness coach like Javier has helped me be more knowledgeable about my nutrition and overall health. Javier doesn't believe in rigid routines. He's successful because he genuinely cares about each client and it show in the individualized attention he gives to each person. Choosing to train with Javier is one of the best decisions I've made.

I have been working with Javier for only 3 months as of now, but I am already reaching some milestones and checking goals off of my list. Javier doesn't just tell you what to do, he teaches the workouts, monitors your diet, and helps you learn to make better decisions so that the changes you make are sustainable and you can leave there confident that you will make healthy choices on your own. Before I met Javier, I had never been a gym regular, so I was not able to do anything too strenuous. We started slowly and eased into more intense workouts as my fitness level improved, and now I can do things that were impossible only 3 months ago (pushups!) It was clear that he's dealt with many people in my situation before. He is patient and reassuring; this is a process and you can't do it all at once. We aren't just working out, we are developing a healthy lifestyle. SW: 310 CW: 275

I've been training with Javier for about 3 months. I initially reached out to him after reading positive reviews regarding his approach to weight loss and nutrition. All of these reviews were spot on. He's helped me set realistic goals and make sustainable changes in my diet. I've lost 15 pounds so far, and anytime I mention a challenge I'm experiencing with making healthier diet/lifestyle adjustments, he's really great at helping me create a plan to tackle it.

I have been working out with Javier for about a month now twice a week. I reached out to Javier so I had someone to hold me accountable and get me to the gym. Not only has Javier been working with me on conditioning but he is also focused on my nutrition to help with weight loss. I just recently attended my first boot camp and while it was difficult he managed to push me to try my hardest while allowing me to go at my own pace. Would highly recommend!

I have been seeing Javier for 3 months, and I’ve lost 23 pounds. I have been struggling with weight loss for a few years and every day of dieting was miserable. I also hate working out so barely ever did. I started seeing Javier to force me do work out. He convinced me to let him help me with nutrition as well by means of a meal plan. Thank goodness he did because it has been a game changer. He created a meal plan that is structured, sustainable and that I actually like! He proposed new, creative ideas keeping in my mind my food pickiness and has worked around my physical limitations due with some chronic lower back pain. He started a boot camp for some of us each week because he knows it’s hard for some of us to work out on our own and wants us to succeed. All in all, he has changed the process of weight loss for me so it’s not miserable, and I’m seeing results pretty quickly. Very happy!!

I haven’t been with Javier a long time, but in the short time I have, I have completely adjusted the way I make decisions about what I eat. I came in knowing I needed someone to help me hold myself accountable and gained a partner who genuinely cares about my well-being. He pushes me in all the right places when I need it, but also works within my circumstances to help me find the best option. It’s not unheard of I’ll send him my lunch menu and we work together to find the selection for the day. We strength train twice a week to supplement my extreme cardio, but during that time we also talk a lot about what’s happening in my life so that I can make a plan on how I’m going to tackle it. I have a long way to go, but am thankful to have Javier to walk (or run) along side me.

I’ve been training with Javier for a year and a half, and in that time he has helped me to completely change my life. When I started seeing him, I was morbidly obese. My diet consisted of fast food and sweets, with an occasional (relatively unhealthy) homemade meal thrown in. I didn’t work out at all and was very out of shape. Now, I am 86 lbs lighter, I’ve lost 29.5 inches overall, as well as 20% body fat. I’m still going, and I can’t wait to see where I end up. Javier has not only provided me with the fitness knowledge of a personal trainer, but also the nutrition advice and guidance that are absolutely critical if you want to lose weight and/or get healthier. He is a health coach and trainer all in one, which is perfect for me. He meets you where you are; he doesn’t expect that you will change your diet and lifestyle overnight. He believes that small changes are what work and what will stick with you, and my transformation is proof that he’s right. Javier is always available to me by text or phone if I have a question or a worry, or if I just need someone to kick my butt into gear to get to the gym or not eat that donut. He checks in with you, and he really listens to what you’re saying. I feel he is truly invested in his clients’ success. If you are ready to get fit and accomplish your goals, I can’t think of a better person to help you do it than Javier.
