I've been working with Lauren doing bodyFi PT (personal training) for several months now and she is fabulous. I am a working mom hitting 40 and waaay out of shape. Lauren listened to what was important to me (not be tied to gym only workout) and whipped me into better shape. I just started going to her bodyFi Bootcamps at the Marina Green and love it. Two best things about bodyF: They do these 30 minute intense bootcamps and/or training sessions that don't waste your time with things like running. It's hard core, one thing to the next, and it is a full workout in half the time. Love it. Second best thing is that the whole team is great, so as a working mom with a nutty schedule, I was able to work with others if needed. I worked out with John, Daniela and Jameela each at some point and each one was fabulous. No more working around your one trainer's tight schedule and/or if they get sick since they have a team. AND, really great pricing for working out at home, the gym or outdoors, so even more flexibility. bodyFi is really the best of all worlds.

BodyFi has helped me get into shape after trying and failing at a number of other things. Their High Intensity Bootcamp is challenging but because it's only 30 minutes, it's totally doable. And it's outside, which I like so much better than being in a gym.

I lost 12 lbs & 13.5 inches in BodyFi's Biggest Winner Challenge. The contest created a fun atmosphere. Aemar is a great drill sergeant and manages to make the workouts really fun. I've also done a few private sessions to turn it up a notch. I especially recommend trying those if you can afford it because John (or whomever you work with) really zeros in on your weak areas and helps you strengthen them.

When I first got signed up for Bodyfi I didn't know what to expect, but after about 4 months, 20 lbs and a whole lot of strength and confidence, I am proud to say that Bodyfi has been outstanding. John and Aemar really get the concept of getting people excited about exercise and overall health. I started out doing bootcamps, which can be at the group locations, or they will customize one for you. After about 6 weeks of bootcamp, I was feeling better and found myself looking for more. I started doing personal training with both John and Aemar and while I often found myself out of breath and struggling to finish, I also noticed big gains in my overall strength and was watching the lbs shed off! I joined their Biggest Winner Challenge, which was a fund raiser compatetition for St. Jude's Hospital and also a real challenge of fitness to see how many gains you could make with body fat, weight loss and inches lossed in the right areas and gained in others. After 2 months, I had lost 20 lbs and am doing things I never thought I would be able to do. I ended up winning the competition and feel so awesome about my acheivments. My clothes are all loose and some need to be replaced. I feel so much better about myself from a fitness stand point, but also an overall well being standpoint. John really helped me with my junk food habits and suggested all sorts of excellent alternatives. Have you ever had Pop Chips??? So good and so much better for you. I would highly recommend these guys, if you're willing to give them your time and effort, you will be gauranteed results!

At 61 and 60, it wasn't easy to find the right folks to provide personal training - and they come to our condo to boot! All of the trainers are just great and they customize the training to meet our needs. Value adds are nutrition, health and well being coaching, and programs we can do between sessions. Highly recommended!

When I took advantage of BodyFi groupon deal back in January I had no intention of sticking with it for the long haul. My plan was to try bootcamp just to kickstart my activity level and then hit the gym on my own. Well that's totally changed! I've been working out with Aemar ever since. In fact, I even did a Personal Training session with Aemar where he came to my apt and gave me a workout plan that I can do at home. I've lost 32 lbs in 3 1/2 months! I'm noticing muscles on my body that I've not seen before!

Aemar is a wonderful trainer. He varies the workouts so you won't get bored. He pushes and encourages you without being a Drill Seargent. ("You are strong! Yes, you can!") He'll help you work with your old injuries....he always has alternatives for me and my bad shoulder. And he makes it fun!

Joining Aemar's class at BodyFi has been one of the best things I've done for myself in years. no joke. Try them out!

Cons: none

Wonderful results. I don't think I've ever looked better in my life. I've gotten so many compliments on my new physique since I started training with bodyFi. So far I've lost 2 dress sizes and many inches off my waist, arms, and thighs. I've been getting personal training sessions twice a week with John & Daniella and bootcamp classes with Aemar & Lauren 2-3 times a week. John really is the best personal trainer out there. He's great at getting me motivated and gives sound nutritional advice.

The bootcamp classes are very effective. The classes are only 1/2 hour, but you get a great full body workout. I've tried the High Intensity and Fusion classes. They are very different workouts but I like the variety that you get from each class. I love all the trainers and thank you so much for getting me in the best shape of my life!

I forgot to mention the downside. I kept having to go shopping for new clothes because everything I had started falling off me after one month of training.

I had the opportunity to work out with each of the bodyfi trianers and had a wonderful experience! Working out at the gym or by myself is not my thing, so I gave bootcamp a try. I saw results right away and met a lot of great people along the way. The bodyfi team not only provided some solid and satisfying workouts, but they are also provided individual attention and great customer service. The workouts varied each day, which made the time go by quickly. Thanks for the great experience and I look forward to starting up again!!

Pros: Quick work out and gets the job done

Cons: You have to miss happy hour if you workout at 6pm...?

.

John and Aemar have been the single biggest fitness success program I've experienced. Period. Just before saying to myself, "maybe this is just how I'm suppose to look," I decided to hire a trainer to see if the personal attention would provide any differing results.
I have never been more satisfied with any fitness program. There, I said it again.
I've been having John and Aemar train me three times a week since last November in one-hour sessions in my building's fitness center and the results have been beyond what I could have hoped for. The hour is never the same, so I'm always doing something new.
There styles are different, but they will always challenge you, coach you and most importantly to me, motivate you to push yourself past what you thought you'd be able to do.
So, if you've been thinking about it, DO IT. Hire a trainer and hire good ones like John and Aemar.

Pros: Personalized fitness program designed around you

I've been doing BodyFi's High Intensity Bootcamp four times a week for a month now. The workouts are tough but not overwhelming. I've seen results in such a short period of time it makes it totally worth the effort. Class times and locations are broad and convenient, scheduling is easy and the instructors (Aemar, Lauren, Daniella and John) are motivating and fun. I would absolutely recommend it to everyone!

Pros: Motivating, High Energy, Quick, Convenient

.

Wow.

Coming from someone who used to think getting a work-out meant chasing down a taxi in a pair of five inch heels, I can honestly say BodyFi is an accessible, results-inducing, and fun program that will work for everyone. I never thought that anything other than the promise of a $5 manhattan could get me out of the office at 5 pm, but now I find myself actually looking forward to the high-energy, fast-paced, 30-minute program.

Thanks to Aemar, Lauren, Daniella, & John, I feel better, I sleep better, I have more energy, I find myself drawn to healthier foods, and my clothes fit better! The trainers are incredibly accomodating and continually ask for feedback so they can improve the schedule and routine for the clients. Knowing that are morning, mid-day, afternoon & weekend options helps me plan my sessions around social and professional comittments so that I don't have to miss a workout.

I would recommend this to anyone!

I've been going to BodyFi's 30 minutes boot camps at the Embarcadero since the beginning of November. At first I was going three times per week, but for about a month now I've been attending five times per week.

The results are beyond amazing! I cannot express how thankful I am to Aemar for the changes I've seen in my muscle tone, body fat percentage and overall appearance. He continually challenges my body - the workouts are never the same. The scenery is great, the location and times are convenient. I really can't rave enough about BodyFi.

I've also done a BodyGem nutrition consultation with John - very informative, and even though the session was months ago, I still email him frequently with nutrition related questions and he quickly responds, frequently just a few minutes later.

In addition, Lauren is an awesome trainer, with a bubbly personality and a great body - look at her keeps you motivated!

Thank you thank you thank you thank you, BodyFi! I heart you so.

I have been attending the bodyfi Dolores Park Bootcamp since the beginning of the year. Aemar is a great instructor and makes working out fun. He is very positive and gives excellent feedback in real time so you can make improvements. It's a wonderful 30 minute workout that I do before work and feel great the rest of the day. I've also signed up for the metabolism test with John and it really helped me know what my daily intake should be. This is the best 30 minute workout ever!!

THANK YOU to John at bodyFi!

Two months ago, I was a demoralized couch potato. Several years of a basically sedentary lifestyle and a not-so-healthy relationship with rich foods had pushed the numbers on the scale to places I'd never seen before. My clothes didn't fit, and I didn't understand why I kept gaining more and more weight. I felt stuck, overwhelmed, and angry with myself. I needed serious help, and when I called John Nguyen, I got it.

I've been working out with John 3x a week (one day a week at bodyFi's tidy Van Ness studio, and two days in my home), and two months later my body looks and feels completely different. I have a waist again! With John's guidance and sane nutritional advice, I've dropped over 12 pounds and 8 inches...during the holidays, I might add.

John is a knowledgeable, dedicated professional. He's particularly great at knowing just how far to push me to keep the workouts challenging, without feeling like torture...I always finish a session feeling strong and proud of myself. I've felt so encouraged by my progress and how I feel that I actually ENJOY exercising and look for opportunities (hiking, yoga, etc.) on my own.

I'm so grateful for this change in my life...it's been worth every penny and every minute!

LOVE IT! This is an extremely organized and beneficial program. The trainers are easily accessible and willing to accommodate schedules and needs. The small number of clients ensures that you have personal interaction helping to get your desired results! I had just run a marathon before joining the bootcamp and was unsure that I would be able to get a strong workout in only 30 minutes. They have proved me wrong. I am seeing better, stronger results than my marathon training! Not to mention, they keep things rotating and changing so that you never feel bored with the workout. They are also very encouraging and supportive during the session when you are in burn-out mode :) Both John and Aemar are extremely dedicated to each client- offering them personalized routines, advice, and support. They care more about your healthy lifestyle than any business objective of their own interest. I'm extremely grateful to both and have recommended them to all my friends. It is a great investment of time, money, and of course- love the RESULTS! :)

John is the best personal trainer! I?m a Cal student, and I always wanted to try personal training?I found John after doing a lot of research, and I?m so glad I did! In the month that I?ve trained with him, I lost over 6 pounds in a healthy way. He helps you build muscle while losing body fat, which is what?s really important. It?s worth the short walk from the SF bart station.

He?s also very helpful with nutrition and will help you find a plan that works. Best of all, John is really caring and kind. His expertise and support will help you reach your goals. The workouts are effective in engaging every muscle in your body and you can really feel that it?s working!

I also started doing bootcamp with Amar, who?s also part of bodyfi and I?m having a blast. I really recommend bodyfi?you have nothing to lose except body fat ?

I never really worked out before I met John, and even the idea of having a personal trainer sounded strange to me. Since about a year I am trying to gain weight and muscles - I have to say that I tried almost everything without much success. My fianc? then introduced me to John and said that I should try to work out with him - I thought why not try it.
John's personal training sessions are fun, but very effective. I first started out doing two workouts a week and soon increased it to about four sessions each week. The fact that John is constantly changing and adjusting the personal training techniques in regard to my improvements really keeps the workouts challenging.
I am proud to say that I have gained about 13 pounds in structured muscles since I started working out with John. Now, this might not seem like a lot for someone of large posture; however, I think I can be proud of our achievements considering that I am only 135 pounds.
John is the best personal trainer and I would recommend him to anyone. My fianc? just started working out with him - trying to lose weight. I can only say that her weight is dropping exactly at the places where she wants it to drop.

I've never told John this, but I was once a personal trainer myself, not a terribly good one. 15 years later I was becoming soft and round and fed up. John helped me to kick my sedentary ways to the curb with all kinds of impersonal data, advice and the ability to tailor his approach to my abilities and personality. He understands when to push me and when to lay off and he listens; I walk home feeling a good tired in every nook and cranny of my body and have developed amazing core and chest strength. This wasn't grim work so much as a fun and disciplined commitment, with John expertly and perceptively tweaking my workouts all the time. I'm pretty close to being in the best shape of my life, thanks to his insights, inventive exercises and his focused and consistent work outs. I've encouraged all my friends to try him out - the first session's free, so you've got nothing to lose!

John is an amazing fitness trainer and an inspiring person to be around. His sessions combine the latest, cutting edge techniques in a tailored one-hour total body workout that is fun and delivers results. He sets realistic goals with the client and keeps the client motivated to achieve them, incorporating nutrition advice and lifestyle counseling. What sets John apart is his deep concern for the client's wellbeing and success. He meets the client where s/he is and crafts a program specifically designed to meet the client's needs. John is extremely professional and takes his vocation very seriously. He regularly attends conferences and seminars to stay abreast of developments and teaching in his field. He pursues excellence for himself and his clients, but does so in an unassuming, gentle manner that makes working out (and spending time with John) a true pleasure. I have been working with John for over a year and consider him indispensable to my wellbeing.

What sets John apart is his deep concern for the client's wellbeing and success. He meets the client where s/he is and crafts a program specifically designed to meet the client's needs. John is extremely professional and takes his vocation very seriously. He regularly attends conferences and seminars to stay abreast of developments and teaching in his field. He pursues excellence for himself and his clients, but does so in an unassuming, gentle manner that makes working out (and spending time with John) a true pleasure. I have been working with John for over a year and consider him indispensable to my wellbeing.

Pros: Fun workout, great results, highly professional trainer

.

John is the best trainer ever! I was skeptical at first and feared getting the "drill sargent" type of trainer that makes you go home crying every night and dreading going back. But even after my first session, John helped me access my goals and after the 1st workout I felt great! John takes fitness very seriously, but doesn't pressure you or make you feel anxious, and makes working out something you might actually start to enjoy! He is really flexible with scheduling, a great motivator, understands a woman's body and how to tone without looking too muscular and bulky, is super funny and makes the workout just fly by with the endless variations and combinations of fitness techniques. I would reccommend him to anyone, man, woman or couch potato, who really wants to get in shape and have a great time doing it! Don't be afraid! Check out BodyFi and you will see results and feel great!

I worked out with John for 12 weeks. I feel that I got into the best shape I have ever been. I had always struggled to even gain a couple of pounds. John taught me exercises, motivated me, and gave me the tools I needed to continue on my path of fitness. Since working out with John and using the techniques and goals he helped me set, I have gotten myself from 150lbs to 160 lbs in just under 5 months.

He teaches you about nutrition, provides personalize advice, and personalized training. I never felt like I wasn't performing well nor did I get discouraged. I began to see results rather quickly which provided extra motivation. I highly recommend John with BodyFi as a personal trainer!

I came to John thinking I knew everything about workouts and nutrition, but was still 5 pounds heavier than I wanted to be. I've worked out regularly for most of my adult life, and closely monitor my diet, but could not understand why I was not getting the results I wanted. After our first day together I realized I had much to learn from him, and have. First, I learned to forget about the scale, and to focus on building strength. Second, John taught when I eat is an important as what. He helped me to thoroughly analyze my food diaries, and suggested smart and simple changes that have produced lasting results. Thirdly, he taught me that eating well and exercising regularly does not have to be all-consuming. Two strength training sessions a week with John (coupled with cardio on my own), gave me all the results I was looking for, AND made me feel more confident about myself and the way I'm living my life. I came to him tense and insecure about my weight and body. Thanks to him I'm relaxed and confident with my diet and workouts--stronger inside and out.

Thanks John!

Pros: Hot, ripped, very motivating

I went to BodyFi looking for structure in my busy life. I had gained about 20 unwanted pounds, and I was swapping muscle for fat. Not only did I get structure, but John's workouts were constantly varied which kept me from getting bored and constantly challenged my body. I noticed the first change in the way my pants fit--and how solid my core felt. He constantly coaches me on proper form and always engages the entire body during the workout, which is very efficient--it's like a full body workout in an hour. I thought I would give it a try, now I am hooked. Friends and family who hadn't seen me in weeks commented at the results, unsolicited, which was a nice suprise. John monitors my weight, body fat, inches and coaches me on proper calorie intake daily. I needed a coach, and I got one. Thanks, John!

John is an excellent trainer! The workouts are varied and he pushes you to work harder than you would on your own. I have maintained a 10 lb weight loss for over one year. I highly recommend BodyFi if you want results!

I'm about to turn 47 and couldn't be happier with the way I look.
With John's training, diet and nutrition advice I've lost 18 pounds in
four months. I'm back at my High School weight of 165 Lbs and 7% bodyfat. I've
been working out for years. I have the basic muscle foundation but
needed some fine tuning. John put me on track on target and focused
to get the results I've always wanted fast!

Before meeting John, I thought I had tried everything. I stay pretty active and used to workout 5 times a week but I didnt ever see results. Its been a little over a month since I started with John. We do exercises Ive never seen before and the workout is always challenging. In a month, I gained 4 lbs of muscle and an inch on my biceps! John asked me about my goals when we started and he helps me plan both my nutrition and workout schedules to meet those goals. I train 2-3 times a week with John and couldnt be happier!

John is amazing! I have worked with other trainers before but nothing like John. His style is unique and very effective. He has also incorporated the nutritional aspect which has enhanced my results. He is motivating, encouraging, enthusiatic as well as taking a personal interest in his clients. I highly recommend him to everyone looking for great results.
