About this pro

We offer a completely private setting for personal training. Our facility focuses on proper form and education of techniques and provide a personalized approach to reach your indiavidual goals. We have both male and female trainers with decades of experience.

We also offer a variety of group classes ranging from yoga to martial arts.

Physical activity has always been one of my favorite things. Capoeira requires you to be in top condition. So naturally, educating myself on physical fitness and exercise was the next step. Personal training gives me the satisfaction of helping people achieve their goals. Whether it be, losing weight or being in top form.

    Professor Bambu is knowledgeable, well prepared, witty, and insightful. A highly experienced practitioner who takes his craft seriously. He trains not only your body, but also your thoughts. Despite his advanced rank, he is humble, compassionate, and humorous, creating a welcoming learning environment for all. Take his classes every chance you get. The world has few such teachers.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We offer a free 1 hour consultation. For the first 30 minutes, we discuss goals, injuries, limitation, diet, and previous physical activity. During this consult we hope to learn as much as we can about our clients as well as explain our approach. For the final 30 minutes we will do a sample workout to show our clients what they can expect moving forward.

During our early training sesions (first 2-4 weeks) we go through an educational period, focusing on form and function. We want to ensure proper technique to prevent injury as well as a real understanding of what is happening. After this education process, we develop a personalized plan for each client.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

We have trainers with decades of experience and multiple certifications in physical fitness, personal training, martial arts, movement, dance, and more.
