I had not been happy with my physical appearance and fitness test scores in the military for a long time. I would periodically start at a local gym on a self-made physical fitness routine, but I would push too hard, become extremely sore, and eventually lose interest within a few days after starting. I finally reached that point in my life this past April where I needed to take action on attaining the higher standard of personal appearance that is expected in my profession and to meet the goals I have always fallen short of in improving my fitness test scores. That is when I found Rivak??s business on the Internet. When I saw what Somagenesis had to offer compared to the other trainers, I knew that Rivak was the trainer that was going to help me meet my personal goals. He has the medical education, training certifications, and experience as an Ironman Triathlete that puts him at the tip of the spear when it comes to fitness. He put together a program of strength and endurance tailored for my personal goals. Since I started working with Coach Rivak, I have lost twenty pounds and attained a first class fitness test score. These are personal achievements that I could not have done on my own. Every workout that I have had with Coach Rivak is challenging and pushes me farther than I would have gone on my own. The weekly fitness program he tailored has me working out three days with him and three other days on my own. My stress level is much lower now along with my blood pressure and cholesterol. Since I signed on with Coach Rivak, I have become a better officer, husband, and father. This is the best investment I have ever made for myself! The short term fatigue of a workout is temporary, but the long term physical and mental change is forever. Thanks Coach Rivak.

I've been training with Oxana from Somagenesis Health & Fitness twice a week for the last 10 months. I??ve had amazing results and I??m thrilled! I lost a total of 11 pounds, but more importantly, I lost 12% of body fat. That??s incredible. I lost a total of 18.8 total pounds of body fat. So that means I actually gained almost 8 pounds of muscle and it shows. Even my size 4 jeans are too big on me and I had to buy size 2. I am now at my goal weight. The change in my measurements is equally impressive. I lost 3.5? from my waist and hips. And 3? from my thighs. I have really enjoyed working out with Oxana. Because I started around the holidays, I initially had minimal improvements. I was traveling a lot, eating out constantly and attending lots of parties. But I didn??t gain weight during this time as most people do. I was a bit frustrated, but Oxana kept encouraging me to push myself. Eventually, I was able to see the difference in both how my clothing fit and increased strength. Exercises that were impossible to do in the beginning, are now easy and we??ve had to find new ways to challenge me. When I started with Oxana, I had some limitations due to on-going arm injuries. I have been in and out of physical therapy for the last several years. Despite my limited mobility, she was able to find exercises that I was able to do that strengthen my arms. I??ve had noticeable improvements and have not had many flair-ups of the old problem. Also, my core strength was very weak when we started. Oxana kept trying different exercises until we found some that I was able to do. She was very inventive! There were times that I was so frustrated that I couldn??t do an exercise. But she was always able to find one that I could do. Oxana is friendly and encouraging. She pushes me in a gentle, yet direct manner. She doesn??t yell and scream like a drill sergeant, but yet somehow she pushes me beyond what I think I can do. I am so glad that I found Oxana and Somagenesis Health & Fitness!

I??ve been working with Oxana for approximately three months. Even though our sessions begin at 6:00 AM ?? an ungodly hour ?? I really look forward to seeing her. She??s fun, she??s smart and she knows what she??s doing. She knows just how to push me when I??m tired and feel like I can??t do one more lunge or squat. She??s a great motivator and a wonderful role model. Since seeing Oxana, I??ve lost more than 6% body fat and inches off every part of my body! I feel stronger and look better. And, I owe it all to Oxana.

My name is John Michael Cione, I am 40 years old and have played sports my entire life. I never worked out regularly with weights. I was referred to Rivak after I had sustained a severe foot injury. I weighed 178 pounds. I thought I was in reasonably good shape. My first workout was more challenging than I could ever imagined. Undaunted, I changed my eating and drinking habits, trained with Rivak 3 days a week. Now I weigh 150 pounds and in the best shape of my life. My strength, speed and endurance have increased dramatically. I also had to buy a new wardrobe and I even fit in clothes that have been in my closet for 10 years. I found that a consistent workout regimen has greatly reduced my stress levels and enhanced my overall attitude. I credit Rivak and his approach to fitness for positively affecting many facets of my life which I had not expected. His discipline and guidance were pivotal in keeping me on track. I honestly feel getting involved with Somagenesis is one the best things I have ever done for myself, my family and my business.

never had to worry about exercise during my 20 years in the Army. PT (Physical Training) was a guaranteed part of my day. Lately my weight started to rise and my energy level dropped. Not a good combination in my current line of work. Rivak's no nonsense, get it done and get it done right ethic, along with his medical expertise is just what this old Sergeant needed. My wife and I are busy and have little time to spare in a day. For couples wanting to stay in shape and stay healthy together, Somagenesis and Rivak is the only solution. I went from 35% body fat to 11% body fat in under 5 months and am still losing fat and gaining muscle. Rivak and Somagenesis kick but OOORA

Rivak has been instrumental in my recovery from injuries, and provided a much more balanced strength and flexibility program. I'm now stronger than before and have a more efficient workout schedule, that yields better results. He is experienced and has a thorough knowledge of exercise physiology. My principal exercise activity is ultra-marathon cycling supplemented with raquetball and skiing. Besides technical expertise he also can adapt to changing personal goals, and provide important motivational messages. I've tried yoga, pilates, and traditional physical therapy, the Somagenesis program easily surpasses all of them!

Rivak's cutting edge approach to fitness and nutrition opened up my potential to new levels. For years, I have struggled to establish proper fitness goals. Rivak helped me redirect my focus in the right direction and establish those goals. In the past, I have always thought the answer laid somewhere between bodybuilding and power lifting. Boy I was mistaken. For years, I had neglected cardio, core and interval training, and neglected what I really was looking for. That was a lean athletic body. My favorite activity/sport is surfing, so Rivak trained me like a swimmer. He showed me different exercises college swimmers perform, and integrated them into a high intensity workout 3 days per week, with long relaxing runs on the days in between. In one month I lost 15 pounds, and barely had to change what I was eating... As long as it was in moderation. As a Marine Officer, I am expected to be in premium condition. Yest, I have, at times pushed my body weight limits. With Rivak's techniques and his ability to clarify what I need for my specific life style, I will never struggle with what I need to do to maintain a high-level of fitness. I have never used a personal trainer before, but I can now say it was a life changing experience and money invested wisely.

I??ve been in general fitness training with Rivak Hoffman for about a year. I can honestly say it has marked a turning point in my life. This is much more than an intense workout session. Sure, I??ve lost body fat, and built up my endurance and strength. More importantly, I??ve also gained insight into the aging process, and how to combat it. I am in my late ??50??s and have changed from a sedentary person prone to aches and acute tendonitis from participating in casual sports, to a more conditioned man, probably in better shape than I was in college. Thanks to Rivak Hoffman??s training techniques, I have regained youthful agility, balance, coordination and flexibility. What distinguishes Somagenesis is professionalism, knowledge, individual attention, and a comprehensive, enthusiastic and guided approach to health and fitness. This is not ??cookie-cutter?? body sculpting. Rivak has an impressive resume, but he doesn??t flaunt it. His medical and neurological training coupled with his credentials in fitness training sets him apart and makes him an ideal trainer for clients of all ages and abilities, those with intact musculoskeletal systems as well as those with disabilities or chronic disorders. Most importantly, he approaches his clients as a true professional. He keeps detailed records and monitors progress. He makes sure you get each exercise right and monitors every movement for mistakes that can lead to injury. Make the call! I??m sure glad I did.

I met Rivak earlier this year at the San Diego Biotech convention. They way he spoke, I though he was one of the guys. His grasp and knowlege of medicine is excellent and he is very inquisitive about furthering is wisdom. I have been training with Rivak for several months now, and have been pleased with the reshaping of my body. I look and feel good and people notice the difference in my appearance and attitude. Rivak is now a big part of my life and we continue to reinvent the wheel in terms of improving my body. Rivak is a great asset to any businessmans arsenal of self growth.

Rivak Hoffman is a superb trainer. His skills and training style are like no other. I had employed the services of multiple trainers at 24 hour fitness over the years, only to disappointed. Rivak was referred to me by my business associate 1 year ago, and it has been a very fruitful relationship ever since. I have lost close to 50 pounds, and have learned how to eat health and chose the correct foods when on the go. he is truly an inspiration for us guys in their 40s as he is our age equal but in amazing shape. personal training can be somewhat expensive, but looking and felling good is so worth it. I could never do it on my own. Thanks Rivak

Looking great is an important aspect of my business. Over the years, I have struggled with weight gain and retention. Being an MD, I though I can handle the task on my own. I guess not! I continued to gain weight and started feeling melancholy about my appearance. Rivak's name came up during a medical conference i attended several months ago. My business partner and his wife have had great results with him, and he was all I would hear about. Well, the timing was right and my mood stimulated me to pick up the phone and make the call. It wasn't east admitting my failure, but I am glad I did. Its been a few months, but finally my belly fits back into my size 32" slacks and I feel wonderful. Rivak and his fitness know- how are a big part of my life, and i now recommend all my patients to use him to maintain their body's after surgery. Rivak is a great guy, easy to talk to, full of information, and besides, he is also a PA, and well medically trained. My suggestion. Use him or lose out.

I met Rivak Hoffman 1.5 years ago after finding him on the internet. I have had numerous personal trainers, but always achieved the minimal expected results. This time I was looking for an upper echlon trainer who could motivate me and push me to a whole different level of fitness. Besides i needed to lose a good 20 lbs of fat off my mid section. Rivak and I were a good fit right from the start. He is very much full of energy and his passion for fitness is very evident. He explains and executes his programs very well, and there is never a dull moment. I although i am often gasping for air, I enjoy my workouts. What really shocked me is my 15 pounds of weight loss that happened in just a mere 4 weeks! Although I have a chived my goals, I will continue to work with Rivak, as I enjoy his company and camraderie. My new goal is to run a triathlon, which is Rivaks forte' and his past for many years. I highly recommend Rivak Hoffman if you want to "cut to the chase" and get the job done. Don't waste your money elsewhere. I have had 5 personal trainers over the years. Rivak is the real deal!

rying to keep weight off, never the less remove extra fat pounds has never been easy for me. I needed help. Thanks to a good friend who referred Rivak Hoffman Master Personal Trainer with Somagenesis, I was able to grab the bull by the horns and get things going. It hasn't been easy, but well worth the time and effort. It could not have been done with out Rivak's wisdom, motivational tools and complete understanding of good and bad nutrition. Since my business is food, I am always surrounded by it and sampling it for quality. I have learned how to avoid habitual noshing and the importance of wholesome organic foods. Since first working with Rivak I have shed 36 pounds in a 3 month time frame. I am very stoked! My long term goal is to drop 60 pounds and I know we can do this over the next 3 months. Rivak is a good guy who is always on time, works around my schedule and constantly keeps my mind in the fitness loop. You just can't go wrong with this guy, but only if you go it alone like I did for so many miserable years. Thank you Rivak

Rivak and I have been training together a bit over two years now. Its been a lot of hard work, and he has given me 100% effort exceeding my expectations. To his record, I have melted away almost 60 pounds of stubborn fat, which I couldn't get rid of on my own. I feel wonderful, my associates at the hospital continually compliment me on my new look, and soon my head will burst. In addition it is always a please to converse with Rivak, as he too is a medical professional by first trade, and is unbelievably bright and completely understands the human body and mind.

My doctor had told me to lose weight,but not how successful weight loss is accomplished. It was time to find a personal trainer. My search began on the internet when miraculously up popped Rivak Hoffman on my computer screen. I had known Rivak when he was working as a Medical Researcher at UC Shiley Eye Center but had not spoken to him for years. I knew he was an honest hardworking individual. He was always driven to do his best, and is a person who never backed down from a challenge. It was at that moment I decided I was going to be his next challenge. If anyone was able to help me through this difficult stage of my life he would. In our initial consultation and fitness assessment, Rivak's calculations confirmed I was in the "clinically obese" category. We discussed a training program that worked for me, and I began my new lifestyle of combining diet, resistance training and cardiovascular exercise. I have been working with Rivak for 1 year and have lost 45 pounds, decreased my bad cholesterol by 20 points, and best of all am now wearing a size 12 dress! I feel great and my friends say I look wonderful. Thank you Rivak for helping me meet my first weight loss goal!

Rivak is intense, methodical and precise in the application of his fitness routines. He is motivating, inspiring and a true gentleman. I enjoy training with him. Besides, he is the first Personal Trainer to enable me to lose the 30 pounds I have struggling with for years.
Thanks Rivak!
