The time I have spent training with Angelina has transformed the way I think about exercise and fitness. I began my sessions with Angelina unhappy with my body and my health, and felt hesitant to work with a trainer due to my severe anemia which makes performing series of movements in different positions difficult. I let Angelina know about my goals and limitations in our initial consult, and from the first day we began training, it became clear to me that Angelina keeps her clients’ objectives and restrictions at the forefront of her thoughts when designing workouts. Angelina is very well-informed on how to best guide clients’ in reaching their goals, and with her I have not only made great progress on these goals, but also have been able to improve my health and the symptoms of my anemia. Now, I no longer experience dizziness and nausea when jumping or moving from a lying to standing position. Angelina will kick your butt in a workout–she most certainly does every time–but Angelina is clearly guided by the ethos of working smarter and not harder to get things done, and her method works. The three one-hour training sessions with her supplemented by three 20- minute cardio sessions on my own time have sufficed to get me on track with my fitness. I, like many, believed that exerting maximum effort would yield maximum reward, but Angelina’s guidance has shown me that this does not have to be the case, and judging by my results, she is right. Angelina is also personally a pleasure to work with. Her bubbly and cheery personality is something I know I can look forward to whenever we’re scheduled to train, and everyone around her loves her for it, even when she is putting their body through exercises and positions that feel rigorous at times! Angelina has my highest recommendation for anybody looking to reach their fitness goals, and especially for those who face physical and health issues that can make exercise challenging.
Angelina’s influence has been life changing. She’s sweet, patient, smart, and inspiring. Working with her for one month I got better results than I had ever dreamed of, and an experience far superior to the one I had at a top nearby health club. Thank you, Angelina!
Angelina is a perfect combo of professionalism, passion, & skills for PERFECTING BODIES!!! She helped me get my body back into shape while greatly improving my cardio, core strength, power & energy level. Angelina came very highly recommended by my original trainer who is absolutely phenomenal, but wasn’t available after my hiatus. But I forgive him because Angelina is not only a superb trainer, she’s LA’s best female trainer with a body & a bio to boot! The challenges she’s overcome, like major weight gain, a serious health condition and IVF treatments, then becoming a Natural bikini silver medal winner motivates me to never give up & keep aiming for new levels in my own fitness. SHE TOTALLY INSPIRES ME!!!
I love working out with Angelina!! I found her to be the perfect choice for my pre & postnatal training! I came to Angelina when I was about 3 months pregnant (through IVF), and was extremely nervous about training during pregnancy (though I had experience training with other trainers previously). Angelina immediately made me feel comfortable training with her, and throughout my pre and post-natal experience with her, I find her to be extremely caring, careful, aware, and most important to me, knowledgeable. As an IVF patient I wanted to be extra careful in selecting a prenatal & postpartum certified trainer who was highly qualified and experienced with helping women stay healthy, fit & strong throughout their pregnancies. Angelina checked all these boxes! I also wanted to avoid excessive weight gain to reduce the risk of gestational diabetes, and other health issues associated with it for the baby & myself. And, also minimize the struggle of trying to lose an excessive amount of weight postpartum. Angelina creates safe & innovative modifications to training that makes training doable at every stage! The training also helped relieve the back, sciatic & hip flexor pain, some of which I developed during pregnancy. As follow up, she gave homework of quick & easy exercise & stretches to do at home to help relieve pressure on back & post natal shoulders to keep me pain free. After having my baby via C-section, I felt strong enough to walk up and down the stairs and carry my baby around within days of returning home. I credit so much of this to my training and staying fit with Angelina DURING pregnancy. My recovery was really quick. As an added benefit, soon after having the baby and losing a lot of water weight, I realized I stayed pretty small under it all and my triceps were even showing! After giving birth to a healthy, beautiful baby, Angelina and I continue working on strengthening my pelvic floor and my entire body to prepare for the next healthy pregnancy. She is a trainer who champions her clients, and she’s pretty darn fun to work out with too! Thank you Angelina for all you do for your clients!
Angelina is the gold standard among trainers! She is a true professional who gets you efficiently and safely to your fitness goal. Her extensive knowledge of nutrition & exercise biomechanics are invaluable. Training with Angelina is both fun & challenging. Her constant smile, upbeat personality and plethora of exercises make her sessions ENGAGING, DYNAMIC, and INTENSE. The sessions fly by fast! Angelina custom tailored my exercise program and meal plan to my specific needs, and made adjustments with each new goal. We worked from my baseline – core strength and continually increased the intensity levels of my training at the appropriate times. Angelina pays close attention to the details. Utilizing creative strategies, and her own uniquely created modifications to work around any past injury or soreness, she gets you STRONGER & SCULPTED FAST!!! My clothes started fitting differently within the first few weeks of training with Angelina, and I had more energy! Angelina is the ULTIMATE TRAINER! She goes above & beyond getting you to your fitness goal! She’s an amazing mentor who guides & pushes you to new fitness levels, and shows you that you can do a lot more than imagined!
Angelina has the most impressive qualifications of any personal trainer, after searching extensively. Her experience in body transformations and her advanced education, along with being the coach to top level athletes and competitors made Angelina our choice! My wife had been wanting to find a personal trainer after having our two children, to make changes to a healthier lifestyle, and it was a goal of hers to fit comfortably and confidently into a bikini. With so much conflicting info about training and weight loss on the internet, my wife was overwhelmed and felt like she could really use the help and guidance of a professional. She preferred working with a female trainer, so I took it upon myself to help my wife locate the best female trainer possible, and we found Angelina. Angelina provided my wife with a total nutrition and exercise program including guidance on the best ways to do cardio, body composition measurements, and gave her an amazing amount of support via text and email, answering all her questions. She provided my wife with science based education about exercising and nutrition. And, as my wife reports, “a very compassionate ear and positive motivating energy” to go along with her wide ranging knowledge. Angelina was the key to getting my wife back into her bikini. My wife is thrilled, and I appreciate knowing my wife also feels stronger and healthier. Exercise and a healthier lifestyle is now the norm for us as a family. Thanks Angelina!
Angelina has been training my mom and I. I like the fact that she has my mom and I on separate workout regimens since we have difference goals and fitness backgrounds. The workouts are difficult yet fun at the same time. She really pushes us to challenge ourselves. I had back surgery a couple of years ago and have always been nervous about working out with weights. However, she helped me get over that fear, she has been able to tailor my workouts to one’s that don’t aggravate my back but actually strengthen my core and back. Also my mom had frozen shoulder and had a lot of weakness. After a couple of sessions with Angelina, my mom’s range of motion in her shoulder improved and she regained most of her strength. Although it’s a bit of a drive (from Whittier) to train with Angelina, it is well worth it. She’s amazing at what she does! 😀 I like the fact that she focuses on our technique and makes sure we are using the correct form. I highly recommend Angelina!
Angelina is THE Body Sculpting Queen! She does nutrition and teaches you the best way to do cardio for your goal and knows all the fitness hacks. She helped me reach my goals for summer! I got such fast results! I couldn’t have done it without her!
Angelina is an expert coach, and an inspiring role model! I met Angelina at Life Gym, a private training facility in west LA. Angelina seemed to be prepping for something, so I asked her if she was training for something specific. She told me that she was competing in natural fitness bikini competitions, and she also sweetly suggested and encouraged me to do the same. Although I have competed in endurance sports, I was a bit hesitant. I knew that I needed to learn the art of posing and how to get my body in the best shape for a bikini competition. Well,….Angelina is a BIKINI POSING MASTER INSTRUCTOR!!!! Angelina knows how to customize training for each persons body type and she choreographed posing routines that were the most complimentary to my body. That is the key factor in presenting your physique to the judges during competitions. She also assigns specific stretches and movement exercises to practice; which ultimately improved my bikini posing, walking, and stage presence. She breaks the training routine into components that are challenging, but not overwhelming. I learned something new from Angelina every session. Angelina completely understands the foundation of body mechanics, and she demonstrates the intricacies of professional posing movements with an elegant sexy style exuding sass and confidence! Angelina’s accolades have truly inspired me! Her belief in me has helped me to feel more confident on stage. She’s a personal trainer, fierce bikini competitor and she is also my cheerleader, beauty coach, posing master instructor!!! I have won my class in every competition so far, and have also earned my Pro Card status. Thank you Angelina!!
Angelina is a fitness legend and the top in LA. Definitely not a cookie cutter trainer – she puts together your custom fitness and meal plan and really cares and motivates her clients. I knew our sessions were really working when I received compliments only my second week in with her! #Booty4Days. Thanks to her, I have learned to make healthy eating enjoyable and a part of my very busy lifestyle…something I never thought was possible. Her knowledge of body, health, and nutrition will literally blow your mind. Most importantly, Angelina is a true pleasure to work with – someone who makes you both smile and sweat during your session. Your personalized goals will always be on the top of her mind. If you are motivated, follow her plan, you WILL reach them! And it’s awesome. If you’re looking for a trainer & most importantly a role model coach in LA, Angelina Margo is the one for you!
Working with Angelina has been life changing! Yes, I lost weight quickly after becoming her client, but the experience has been worth so much more than that. First of all, Angelina was able to put together a low FODMAP diet plan for me, which I really appreciated! But what has been extraordinary is her ability to understand and help heal the (many) injuries in my body. She has an uncanny ability to tell what is inflamed or bothered on me that day – certain area in my shoulder, neck, hip, etc. – often before I can! Then we actively work on those areas. Other trainers I’ve worked with have completely ignored the areas on my body that are prone to injury, but as Angelina explained to me, if you don’t work on them, they won’t heal. So true! This is first time in a long time that I have no pain at all in my neck and back. I can attribute that 100% to Angelina. She is truly an intuitive healer! She is so attentive and explains things so well that I have a much better understanding of my body now, as well. With the meal plan and what I’ve learned about my body through working with her, I now feel like I have the tools I need to feel in control of my body and my health. I’m so grateful that I found her!
Angelina is an attentive trainer! I came in with several injuries and she was able to create a training plan for me that worked around my injuries. I highly recommend her to anyone who has past injuries and is looking to train efficiently and get fit
Angelina is fantastic. I’ve had many trainers in the past and she’s by far my favorite. The results I saw in 3 weeks with her were equivalent to 6 week results with others. She’s very good at motivating you through the exercises. I didn’t need much encouragement as I thoroughly enjoyed her approach in my workouts. I have a tendency of getting bored or unfocused if the workouts are too repetitive. But Angelina switches it up before I get to that point which was incredibly helpful with me staying consistent and dedicated. She’s very good with modifications to an exercise if needed. I highly recommend her!
I’ve tried everything under the sun, then I found Angelina! In my 72 years of life, Angelina is far beyond any trainer or physical therapist that I’ve encountered. Words can not express the extent to which she’s given me a new start. Before being so fortunate to meet Angelina I had suffered a knee injury and had been in pain for over 5 years. After pushing through the pain during treatments (with at least 6 different Physical Therapists), I unfortunately remained in the same pain. I had even developed new pain in my hip, neck, and lower back in the process. Almost immediately upon training with Angelina she identified the problems that were causing my hip, neck, and back pain. She addressed it, and the pain in all three areas are completely gone. Angelina also targeted the source of my knee pain. I now know what to do to relieve it. Thanks to Angelina I now train pain free. I’ve had various trainers, taken many fitness classes, participated in marathons, boot camps, cross-fit. spinning, and also trained for two years with a Plates reformer. Angelina is undoubtedly the very best in all aspects of training, I love my results! Aside from being an incredible person and trainer who’s kind, sweet, and understanding, I found that she’s attuned to each individuals body. Her focus and instincts are amazing!!
My wife and I have trained with Angelina for over a year. Our core motivation for our intensive training was to prepare for our wedding that was coming up in six months. We both wanted to make significant changes to our appearances in a relatively short time while also balancing very busy professional schedules that include a lot of travel. Taking this into consideration Angelina designed a program that included both fitness and diet to meet our specific needs and concerns. In particular my wife was still recovering from a knee surgery and wanted to get into shape without injuring herself. Angelina’s program for both was incredibly detailed. She did regular caliper Body composition measurements to track progress, to ensure we were actually losing body fat only, not muscle. The customized program which included resistance, cardio, and nutrition were built out for every week and the more we followed them the faster both of us achieved our milestones. The program was hard but sustainable and enjoying. My wife lost the weight she wanted while also getting incredibly toned and building noticeable muscle. For me, she helped with noticeable differences broadly but also my abs and shoulders muscles which were my goal in a very short time (I didn’t work as hard as my wife did!) For both of us she incorporated a lot of core and back strengthening exercise that are great for office execs like us that have a lot of back strain for sitting too long. Bottom line we were thrilled with how we looked in our wedding pictures. All of the wife’s friends who hadn’t seen her in just the few months leading up to the wedding were stunned and impressed by her appearance. We’re still working with Angelina regularly and love her postive and “Can Do!” attitude!
My wife has been a client for Angelina for almost a year and here is her experience: Angelina is the perfect pre-natal/post-natal/beach body personal trainer. I went to Angelina because I wanted to stay fit during my pregnancy. I got so much more than just being fit. Not only did I stay fit my entire pregnancy I massively improved my physique and fitness. I had a winged shoulder I didn’t know about – Angelina fixed it. She helped me with my posture. The strength I got from compound work outs allowed me to maintain good posture and strength for when I carried the baby. I still had my oblique muscles at 8 months!! She taught me muscle memory with pelvic floor exercises to have a strong delivery. I pushed the baby out in two pushes 5-10 min delivery! The doctor said they’d never seen anything like it. I truly attribute it to the muscle awareness I developed in training with Angelina. I returned after my 6 weeks. Every thing is due to Angelina’s workouts, tips and tricks! Highly recommend! My doctor said I should wait 6 weeks and on the 6 week mark I went in but was a little scared, but Angelina ramped me up in a way that felt super comfortable. My friends and husband couldn’t believe how quickly I got my pre-pregnancy body back. Outside of this, I’ve gotten so much fit while staying lean and feminine and still can’t believe what I see when I look in the mirror. I’ve worked out on and off for a while before finding Angelina, and it’s not that Angelina works me harder.. it’s that we work super smart. This is the key realization I had when thinking about how much stronger I am, how much better my posture is, and how much better I look and feel. It didn’t take an inordinate amount of effort, it just took having the right coach and trainer (Angelina!).
I cannot recommend Angelina enough!! This was my first time working with a personal trainer and I couldn’t be anymore satisfied with my results. I chose to train for 12 weeks under her wedding package, and added an additonal month after to keep the momentum up right before my wedding. I was put on a diet and exercise routine to SHRED . Everyday together was different and nothing was repetitive. What I really appreciated from her training was how she catered and listened to my needs. She checked in before and during every session. If there was a day I felt pain, she made sure to not focus on those areas. She pushed me enough through challenges, but always valued my safety. Aside from training, she is the type of person to bring out the best in people with her warm, sweet personality. She exemplifies an empathy not many people possess. Angelina has been a key player in my fitness journey not only for my wedding..but for life. I still get a little emotional looking at my before and after photos.
Angelina literally kicks your butt! She is the squat queen! She has toned my glutes and overall legs in ways I never had known before. She is professional and driven. She is enthusiastic and focused. I have seen amazing results with Angelina. I cannot recommend her enough!!!!!!!
I’ve worked with Angelina for almost two years and she has truly changed my life! When I started working with Angelina, I weighed 190 pounds (I’m 5’8″, 33 years old, and female), the heaviest I’ve ever been. Using Angelina’s exercise and nutrition program I lost 70 pounds and have started competing in natural body building. I truly used to think that it was impossible for me to meet my fitness goals. However, with Angelina’s guidance, I have and I’m loving it!
If you’re on the fence about hiring a personal trainer, this is your sign to do it and make that trainer Angelina!
This is a LONG overdue review, but I wanted to get some good before and after photos because the proof is in the pictures! I have had the pleasure of working with Angelina since May 2021 in anticipation of my July 2022 wedding. I wanted to be at my goal by the time I tried on dresses. I did the wedding package, and the whole experience far exceeded my expectations. From the first day she was SO kind- more like a friend or family than anything. She is so warm and has such a kind heart, you immediately love her- AND don’t feel judged by where you start out. But don’t let her kindness fool you- she will kick your booty! But only because YOUR goals are HER goals. She is truly a teammate on the journey. I have trained on and off for most of my adult life, and the pandemic had me really feeling very poorly in my body. And now, at 36, I am in the best shape of my life! She stays in touch about your meals, your exercise- everything is laid our exactly as you need to follow. We have continued to work out, and I know we will be a lifelong team. Genuinely the most worthwhile investment, especially for a wedding. While I know people think it sounds vain to want to look your best in “the dress” for me it’s so much more than that. I want to be fully emotionally and mentally present at our wedding- and when I am uncomfortable in my body, I am not “present” I am preoccupied by what I look like or what others think. I know, looking like I do now, the only think I will be preoccupied with is my hubby THANK YOU Angelina for changing my life!!!
Where do I start? I did three months package with Angelina and I love every moment of training with her even on the days I’m not feeling the best. She’s cheerful, fun, always energetic, not to mention extremely professional. I was initially very hesitant about hiring a trainer after reading tons of reviews of people who had bad experiences after hiring personal trainers. Everything from not showing up, being distracted, being on their phone during sessions, to not showing up at all! The more bad experiences I’d read the the more intimidated I felt and the more I’d put it off…until I decided to finally take a chance. I read so many great things about Angelina and hoped for the best. What I did find is someone who is very professional and kind. That was icing on the cake because I also reached my goal! It was hard work but Angelina made it fun and helped me keep motivated. She’s was also very proactive with ensuring I always used excellent form and insisted I let her know if anything hurt me, and made modifications for any exercises necessary to ensure I’d feel no pain whatsoever.
She addressed the chronic knee pain I had been dealing with for years and would ignore and push through when running or exercising. And, she gave me tips on how to avoid the pain I usually felt in the mornings while taking stairs…which was daily.
For those who feel hesitant or intimated, I have nothing but a glowing report of experiences from training with Angelina!
Bring on the micro bikini Las Vegas cause I’m ready!
My workout sessions with Angelina are in-depth and intense, but fun. She takes the time to work out every section of my body completely, and let me tell you I feel the burn that I love! Of course she knows what she is doing and talking about. (She knows tons of fancy exercise terms and techniques fyi). She makes me feel at ease and comfortable. I don’t feel like she is judging me, or gets frustrated if I don’t get the exercises correctly right away. I can’t have a trainer that is impatient with me because I need repetition to be able to make that mind and body connection. She is full of positive energy. I love her!
P.S. I also enjoy the yoga stretches and foam rolling.
Angelina is great to work with. I’d never trained with a female trainer before but Angelina is a powerhouse of know-how for any type of training. I’ve done some running and weight training on my own but I wanted to take my training to the next level. Angelina trained me with a combination of bodybuilding, endurance and strength training. She helped me get the physique I always wanted. Thanks, Angelina!
I highly recommend Angelina to anyone who wants to get FIT & LOOK FIT Naked! Angelina is the sweetest trainer I’ve ever worked with! But don’t let her sweet demeanor fool you — she will push you hard and motivate you. She is very professional — arrives on time, focuses on me (and not on her phone. yes there are trainers like that), listens to me, and modifies the workout if I have an ache somewhere. She goes beyond just being a trainer and is a great accountability coach by checking in with you through text or email, even when she’s on vacation! Before working with her, I would do hours of cardio and avoided doing any weights because I didn’t want to look ‘like a man’. But by looking at Angelina herself proves that weights don’t make you look bulky and that it’s possible to still be feminine. She understood what my goals were and tailored my workout and nutrition plan so I could reach my dream body. To measure my progress, she would take my measurements and calculate my body fat. I’m surprised that I’m the exact same weight and yet fit into smaller clothes! Occasionally I also train with Angelina’s husband Ray, who is actually the trainer to other top trainers in LA, they make an amazing team! Angelina is definitely as good as it gets, she will get you to your goals fast, but in a sustainable and healthy manner! Her positive energy is addictive so you’ll love seeing her at every training session.
I felt super excited to start training with Angelina. She has the ideal shape in my book, and I hoped she could help me get fit and lose the extra weight I put on over the past several years. Our training sessions have been awesome. She takes the time to teach me how each exercise, and the equipment are working to change my body. This helped me get more invested in my training, to get the most out of my sessions. I also follow her nutritional guidance. The first 4 weeks I lost 5 lbs., cheated a bit in between, but lost a total of 10 lbs. after 12 weeks training. Now I’m really liking how I look in my new clothes! Initially, I was a bit hesitant about the training fees, but now I don’t give it a second thought. I HIGHLY recommend her!
Spectacular trainer!!! I’ve never been fond of exercise or dieting, but I had put on a lot of weight while on doctors care, and knew I had to make a significant change in my life for my health. I am extremely grateful to have found Angelina. I feel like she genuinely cares about helping me. She taught me how to transition into a healthier lifestyle in a way that is actually doable. With her meal guidance, I don’t feel like I’m starving myself, and my exercise sessions seem to go by quickly. Angelina has been my cheerleader, confident, and coach, and she trains me like a beast…and I actually love it! The ponds have come off and I have more energy now. You won’t find a more encouraging and talented trainer than Angelina!
Angelina came highly recommended to me by a good friend. After meeting with her, I was not disappointed. To begin with she’s in great shape, it’s nice to find a trainer that practices what they’re preaching. My training sessions with Angelina are awesome!!! She’s very engaging and makes workouts fun. I almost forget how hard I’m training. I like how she sometimes incorporates Pilates and yoga to my workouts and to the cool downs. I also love that she includes plenty of exercises that work on my glutes. Another thing I like is that she gives me great tips on how to switch around the foods I’m eating to healthier meals that are still enjoyable. Angelina inspires and encourages me to reach for my best. I feel and see results besides being a great trainer she is also among the nicest and most caring people that I know.
Went to her of to get back into my jeans! I have always been skinny and was able to drop extra pounds with a simple diet..but when I turned 40 my body completely changed.. and then I quit smoking.. the pounds kept adding. I refuse to to buy new jeans. I needed to get a grip and make some serious Lifestyle Changes. Since I’ve never been to the gym or had a serious Diet before I had no idea what to do. Angelina was referred to me( by a bride who looked amazing) and fell in love with her the minute I met her . She listened and was ready to go. She had a game plan and was super excited about that just motivated me to the next level… I had a partner in this journey! She created a meal plan for me and a workout that I could do on my own outside of our personal trainings. And then she held me accountable! She constantly questions about what was I eating and how long did I work out on my own. Our one-on-ones are amazing! She keeps it fresh and new each time. Don’t get me wrong she pushes you and it hurts but she has a way to make you laugh through your tears and at the end you feel so proud and accomplished. I am truly lucky and blessed to have found her… she’s the first trainer of ever had and and will be the last.. Never leaving her 🙂
Feeling like a champ again after training with Angelina! Before training with Angelina I’d primarily workout on a few machines for my chest, but skipped many other exercises in effort to avoid pain in my knee. Knowing that other areas of my body needed strengthening, like my back, shoulders and lower body, I tried workouts with other trainers. They took me straight into very high intensity cardio, didn’t pay attention to my form, and had me do exercises that just didn’t feel right. Angelina has opened up a whole new world to me in introducing work outs that target specific areas of my body that I felt needed extra work. She increases my strength incrementally, correcting my form and technique for exercises that strengthen my back while working around my knee to prevent pain or injury which was a concern. She has many ways of creating modifications so I can exercise my entire body, and incorporates cardio into my strength training workouts. I was very surprised at how she was able to make so many exercises doable for me, actually pain free. She focuses a lot on core strength, watches my posture, angle, and degree of flexion, as she puts it, and the number of weights and reps she has me use really helps me get a challenging work out, again, (with out any pain). She showed me how I can still get that burn with out using heavy weight for areas I would normally stay way from, while also gradually increasing the weight for my stronger muscles. I can feel how good these exercise are for my back, overall strength, and fitness. And, also learned the importance of stretching and foam rolling for recovery, and staying hydrated. She really knows how to get me through tough work outs without getting discouraged!
I am so ecstatic to write this review for Angelina. She is not only an outstanding trainer, but her personality shines outwards like no other. Angelina has an impressive bio, an incredibly cheerful energy…and her workouts are a never ending array of non-stop cross core calorie burning butt kicking exercises that’s really unique and keeps things interesting! Nevertheless she is a constant source of optimism and encouragement!! I always feel extremely comfortable working with Angelina. Her extensive nutritional guidance and meal coaching are invaluable and I love how responsive she was to my questions. Whether in person or via text she regularly checks in with me, encouraging me towards my goal. Angelina is very passionate about helping others and you can tell she really cares. Even though I’ve moved further away, I know I can call her anytime and count on her to enthusiastically answer any questions. She’s truly exceptional!!! Please go to her, you will THANK ME!!! 🙂
Angelina brings a positive attitude, depth of knowledge and fun spirit to her workout sessions. She tailors each workout to your personal strengths and limitations, being sensitive to everyone’s needs. She is able to clearly explain the exercises which helps to avoid improper movements and injury. Angelina is inspiring and has the ability to bring out the best in her clients. I love working out with her, just her darling figure alone is enough to make me wanna power through to the end!
Angelina is just an amazing personal trainer and weight loss coach. The past few years I had been yo-yoing around 8 to 10 lbs over my normal ideal weight. Although I didn’t have a lot of weight to lose, the constant cycle of eating healthy then eating stuff I actually enjoyed while also trying to get my weight down was very frustrating. Angelina designed a fitness program that started with a body composition analysis, this gave me a good picture of my fat to muscle ratio, then followed by an exercise plan, along with a list of healthy meal choices. She also taught me how to tweak my meals so that I could make the foods I loved healthier. After less than 2 months of training with her I’m back to my ideal weight, and I have more lean body mass. Angelina taught me that body composition is a healthier way to assess my fitness, instead of just looking at a number on my scale. Now I feel like I’m in even better shape in my mid 30’s than I was in my 20’s. So glad I found her!
Angelina has a lot of knowledge about fitness, exercise and nutrition. She’s very motivating, really nice, and utilizes a variety of exercises for my workouts which makes it fun, it’s challenging but fun! My business is promoting health and wellness, I have customers that come to see me from far away cities, and I’m often asked If I know a good doctor, chiropractor, dentist, massage therapist etc, those in the health industry … they know I look for the best for services and only go to the best. This is why I train with Angelina. Since she is now on the Westside, I can’t train with her as often as I’d like, but I’m grateful that she drives out to my area once a week for her clients like me. She designs exercise programs that includes exercises I’m to do on my own, so that it compliments my workouts with her. She’s a true professional, and I get amazing feedback from customers that I’ve referred to her. She is a gem!
Angelina is a pro at what she does! When searching for a trainer I came across one of Angelina’s websites with her bio, testimonies, and videos showing here versatility as a trainer, sometimes incorporating rehabilitative type exercises, and how she works around injuries. I chose to train with her because I needed to work with someone who has that extensive knowledge. I’ve had two knee surgeries, and more recently plantar fasciitis surgery on both feet which had left me inactive and feeling out of shape. Before the most recent surgery I felt like I was in pretty decent shape and really wanted to get back on track. My sessions with Angelina include functional and strength training, flexibility training, and we also work on improving my posture. These workouts are also helping to increase my bone density, which I was concerned about. We continue to increase the intensity of my workouts as I become stronger. With in weeks I was doing a lot more exercises than I thought I’d be able to do.
Angelina really inspires me to do my best. What ever your fitness level, she can get you back on track and fit again!
I LOVE in-home training with Angelina. She always brings so much positive energy to every workout that really helps me enjoy my workouts and gets me energized for my day. I’m very particular whom I allow in my home and around my family, but they adore her and my pets like it when she comes. It also fits nicely into my busy day, when my schedule doesn’t permit travel time to and from the gym. Angelina combines lots of fun exercises into my heart pounding super sweaty workouts; high intensity lifting, cardio, kick boxing, even some self-defense along with foam rolling, and ends each session with awesome stretches too I also really appreciate how she keeps me accountable by consistently checking on my diet and even provides me with some great healthy recipes. Luv, luv, luv it, she’s worth every penny and more!!!
Angelina truly has a gift! She’s more than a fitness coach, she’s a wellness coach who works with the whole person. The pain in my shoulder and back had been hurting for over a four month period to the point where I couldn’t even put on my shirt. My doctor said I had contusions in the back-shoulder area and recommended I stop using my arm and let it rest. I started to feel better, however, the month and a half before I began training with Angelina, I could tell that same pain started to return to the same condition. I was pleasantly surprised that after the first training session with Angelina, the pain that was starting to creep up again was gone. With Angelina I learned that I can stay pain free with proper exercise. She’s very intuitive and knowledgeable with helping ease aches and pains in my body induced by stress and repetitive movement through exercise, while helping me get stronger and more fit. She showed me ways to strengthen my shoulders, back, and entire body. And, explained how certain movements can cause pain. Simple things that are so important, but I never thought about until she pointed them out. Training with her feels fun, comfortable, and very much needed. On top of that she’s got a bright personality and smile, I couldn’t ask for more!
Angelina brought out my inner athlete!!! She has me accomplishing way more than I ever thought possible! I am 51 years old and a mother of 4, thus getting back into shape has been no easy task. While, I do walk, hike and work out to an occasional you-tube video, I was not seeing or feeling the results I was looking for until I trained with Angelina. She’s expensive, but worth every penny. Angelina makes you feel good about yourself, your body and works with you to build upon your strengths. I appreciate how she pays close attention to ensure I utilize proper form and exercise safely, so I do not injure myself (hurt my butt). 😛 And, there is nothing monotonous about her workouts and the sessions seem to fly by — which I also appreciate! One is never bored during her sessions, which is a huge plus. Her incredible comprehensive knowledge about fitness, nutrition & meal coaching is amazing, and I LOVE all of her awesome health tips. Like a best friend, I feel like there is nothing I cannot ask, or share with Angelina. I never feel judged…just EMPOWERED!!!!!
I hired Ray and Angelina to help me with my weightloss after having 2 kids, 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 years old. I dub them the “dynamic duo”. They are a wife and husband team and Angelina’s expertise lies in nutrition, recipes while Ray is your classic hard-core trainer. I hired them both for only 2 months within my allotted budget of one month 2x a week. I trained with Angelina first in April then Ray in May. I had an awesome experience with both trainers. They are well educated and very knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition! I have a J.D. and many times I was awestruck at the information Ray and Angelina provided me. Ray is a walking dictionary! Not only did I lose weight and body fat, I learned about clean food vs. bad foods, how to cook nutritious foods, portion control and understanding my macros. For someone who is considered “skinny fat”, I thought I knew about nutrition but after training with Ray and Angelina, I realized I knew very little about working out and nutrition. After 2 months of training, I’m very happy with my results. I’m not at my goal yet as that will take time and hard work. Losing weight and getting in shape ain’t easy or fun especially with 2 little kids, a husband, working and a household to run, I’m better now equipped about living a healthy lifestyle and not just bouncing on one diet to another. My husband also lost 15 lbs simply just eating the foods I cooked and no exercise. I wished I had trained with Ray and Angelina earlier! I would rehire them again if I had the disposable income. My only qualm is that they are strict with their cancellation policy so don’t miss a workout or you lose it. I was sick for one day and there are no make-ups for that. Overall, it was a great experience and I highly recommend them. Especially after having gained weight after pregnancy.
Angelina has great energy! She is very positive and motavating to work out with. You will see fast results while eating properly and keeping up with her workouts. She has exercises suitable for beginniners and advanced!
Angelina is just a gorgeous person…Inside and out!!!
I trained with her before I had my baby, after my baby, and am now training with Angelina again to prepare for my upcoming wedding which is in a few months. I love how she designs my workouts based on my current conditioning and energy level, which has been very different each time. she knows a lot about pre and post natal exercise,,, and knows just how far to push me…to kick my but!!!! She also gives me some great meal choices that makes dieting very doable!!! Her recipes actually make for some very delicious meals. And, I like how she text messages me to keep up on my process.
She’s amazing at what she does. Angelina, I thank you, my fiancé thanks you and my baby thanks you too, for always helping me get in shape, and helping me feel like I can do anything!!!
Oh my gosh love this woman, Angelina really knows how to train. She helped me get in great shape, and she’s a great motivator too which really helps. I recently moved from LA but want to continue to train with her when I can so she can keep me fit!
Angelina is amazing!!!!! She is not only sweet, but she really knows her stuff! She has the ability to perfect anyone’s body and I’ve seen first hand that she is dedicated, motivating, and absolutely has a passion for transforming people. She understand prenatal and how to keep you healthy during pregnancy as well! I highly recommend angelina to anyone men or women !!!!!
The girl knows her stuff!! Wow!!
Angelina is very professional and reliable. Her in-home training is fantastic! She brings everything you need for a total body workout.
She makes me feel comfortable and allows me to work at my own pace, since I’m still recovering from surgery. She encourages me not to over do it , yet challenges me. I love the variety of exercises for my abs, glutes, arms, back, and legs,… total body workout. She even adds in kickboxing which is my favorite. I’m usually pretty hardcore when it comes to working out so this is perfect for me. I can’t stop telling my husband how awesome my body feels with her training.
I highly recommend Angelina as a personal trainer. She is knowledgeable, encouraging, and one of the nicest, sweetest people you would ever want to meet. She also gives great tips for strengthening my back muscles and improving my posture to do on my own. I’m always excited for the next session.
Oh my goodness, I could not ask for better.
I am making a come back after two years of being sedentary due to an injury. I am a senior and did not think it was going to be possible to be able to take long walks again and regain strength in my legs, arms and core but Angelina saw me differently and I am so grateful. She genuinely care about my progress, helping me get into the best shape that I am capable of.
Sessions for me always start with a gentle warm-up and are followed by therapeutic type exercises which complement the physical therapy I completed. She watches every move I make and makes adjustments around what I can tolerate each session. She also leaves me back up exercise or stretches that I can do in place of the recommended ones in case I am having a not so good day. That means a lot since I can always feel like I accomplished something each day and am still gaining strength.
At every session, we evaluate where I had trouble and where I need to increase reps or weight. She pays close attention to my current stamina/energy and ability level and adjusts as I improve. She has a keen awareness of body mechanics which is so important, especially for someone like me who has several structural issues. I am so happy I found Angeline. She is well worth her fees. I am no longer on my way to a wheel chair, I am on my way to be able to hike again. Thank you, thank you.
Since training with Angelina, I feel stronger, more energetic, and even feel more optimistic.
It has an impact on my overall health and sense of well being not simply my physical health. Angelina is very kind and encouraging, and she makes sure I stay focused on my workouts because I can become easily distracted when training. She has great certifications, she listens to my goals, and understands how to create a great program that evolves as I train. Her fees are comparable to other trainers on the west side, but her experience working with diverse populations, meal coaching, and anti-aging tips, which I love, really sets her apart.
We absolutely LOVE & TRUST Angelina!! She really has a knack for meeting people at their fitness level.
My mother has wanted to lose weight for many years and HATED the idea of dieting and exercise, but she feels completely comfortable with Angelina. Angelina selects exercises she thinks would actually be fun for my mom to do. To my mother’s surprise they are fun and easy to follow, which is VERY important to her!!! Angelina also provides her with healthy meal options, and recipes.
Currently not in Cali, so I follow Angelina’s youtube channel and FB for exercises. I really like how she explains and demonstrates the exercises throughout her videos. …SO looking forward to training with her when in L.A.!!
Angelina is an outstanding trainer! Not only does she have the professionalism and knowledge of what a trainer possesses, she is also very patient in listening to your needs and wants without judgement. She makes you feel comfortable and motivates you to do your best without the intense pressure that I’ve experienced from other trainers. Though the exercises can be intense, she makes it fun.
I always look forward to our sessions!
ANGELINA IS THE BEST PERSONAL TRAINER!
I had been traumatized since working with another personal trainer. Unlike the other trainer, Angelina uses her expertise to make her clients feel comfortable and confident. Prior to our first training session, Angelina and I spoke about the areas that I was looking to improve. The first time we worked together, she was super warm and friendly. As I mentioned I have worked with a previous personal trainer which was a nightmare. Working with Angelina has been quite the opposite. (Not once did I feel like Angelina was judging me.) She was receptive to my goals and made a game plan for our workouts. Also, was very attentive to my pre-existing back issues. Not only did Angelina modify my workouts to assist me in preventing further injury, she also had me do specific exercises to build strength in my weak back and had me avoid other exercises that could make it worse.
Over the course of our training sessions, I found myself going from tired and sore, to energized and looking forward to our next session. She uses an endless variety of exercises from multi-joint, bands, physio balls, ropes, machines…etc. Before I began working with Angelina, I thought that a good work out consisted of only cardio.
Angelina is also super caring! I have been going through a lot of personal struggles and Angelina has shown her warmth and concern in reaching out to me prior to our workouts to make sure that I’m doing okay. I’ll continue to work with Angelina to get the most out of my workouts and to attain my fitness goals (patience is a virtue)!
Thank you, Angelina!
Training with Angelina has benefited me in a multitude of ways, with my sleep, my energy level in addition to feeling stronger. She mixes up my workouts with all kinds of cool exercises, like kick boxing, plyometrics & resistance bands…kettle bells, battle ropes etc. I love that she also targets my areas of concern…back of my arms, back/bra-line, waistline.
She totally inspires me to stay tough to make my goals.
Angelina is truly an exceptional trainer and wellness coach.
I love the fact that she has the experience along with several certifications that allows her to work with every kind of person to meet their goals, including special populations because that is what I needed for my daughter.
Angelina was the perfect choice. She has the patience and the ability to keep my daughter engaged to the point where she is enjoying her workouts. It’s impressive how well versed she is in nutrition and our alternative regimens. She also keeps updated with my daughters health care team to provide the most optimal sessions for her. My family and I are extremely appreciative to have someone like Angelina who has the compassion and skills set that continues to meet our highest expectations!
I did several small group training with Angelina after having my little one and the sessions are fun. I learned new exercises using kettle bell, bands and free weights. It’s a good mix of strength and cardio training, with cool warmups and cool down stretches at the end. Angelina is very professional and she motives me and encourages me to continue working out to meet my goal and be ready for summer. Beside the great work out she also gives me tips on what not to eat, a diet to follow to stay healthy and to keep my weight down. I lost approximately 30 pounds so far.
Angelina is Awesome!! She’s reliable, sweet and very encouraging. She is very informative and gives plenty of options to make sure you are happy with your sessions. She gives a ton of spotting and feedback on improving my form which I really appreciate. Her diet advice is great and she also has taken the time to follow up with me by phone. I will go back to her every time I need that extra motivation.
My experience with Angelina has been great. She understands what I want to focus on and she pushes me right at the point when I’m ready to give up. She not only helps with the physical workout but also gave me plenty of advice on how to improve my diet which is what I need to work on too!
A friend of mine recommended Angelina to me. The day after my workout with her gave me more motivation to continue on my weight loss journey. She truly knows her stuff and she is very professional. She has a great attitude and is very engaged while training you. Thank you Angelina for a great work out!!!!
She really motivates me to keep going! It was very hard to workout due to a bad knee. Angelina is so concerned about my knee. She modifies the exercises so I can have a great workout each time without hurting myself.
