About this pro

Philosophy: To build a functional, sustainable, efficient, athletic, economical, disease-free, pain-free, & injury-free body. I want my clients to not only have optimal & functional health but to become competent, adaptable & productive human beings.


I have a BS in Exercise Science, worked in Cardiac Rehab, wrestled for four years and have been a consumer for a long time within the fitness industry. I understand the confusion & frustration that customers go through with the vast amount of info we have at the touch of a button. I have experimented and tried several diets, health protocols, supplements, etc. I still continue to test & experiment on myself, but I do this before I utilize these methods with my clients to ensure results.  

Training Specialties:

  • Posture Correction

  • Corrective Exercise

  • Gait Analysis

  • Dynamic & Functional Movement

  • Athletic Performance

  • Rehabilitation

  • Myofascial Release


American College of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer

    He is very knowledgeable in functional patterns. His workouts are focused on fitness and being pain free. An added bonus is better balance and posture. His workouts are for the athlete as well as the non athlete, for young as well as old.

  • Sam Libber

    John is a skilled trainer who is well-versed in a number of treatment methods for all age groups. He has been a big help to my wife and me, centering his therapy on myofascial release techniques. We would wholeheartedly endorse him.

  • Taffy Davies

    He is very encouraging and positive.

  • Jessica Lipton

    John is an awesome personal trainer! I’ve been his client for a little over 6 months. My posture has improved greatly and I enjoy our trainings. He really knows about how the body is designed to work and how to fix different issues. John is professional and truly cares about his clients’ health and well-being. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a trainer, especially if you have pain issues.


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

It all depends on how often I see the client and whether the client does their homework. Every client is at a different stage/level and my goal with them is to get to know their body more and more, within each session. The more I can understand their body, the more I can figure out the root cause of the dysfunction. The more I see a client, the quicker their process or vice versa, if I only see a client once a week, but they're consistently doing their homework 4-5x a week, then they could also progress quickly as well. 

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

I have a bachelors degree in exercise science and an American of College Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My standard price for any more that is 30 minutes or less  from my location is $30.00 an hour. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started working as a personal trainer at a local gym at the Y in Arnold and have branched out to the Y in Pasadena, then later on also started running my own in-home gym. And have since then continued to build up my clientele and have gotten several referrals. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Mainly middle age to seniors or anyone from the late 30s to 70/80s years old, however, I can work with anyone of any age since I train the human body in accordance to what we evolved to do as species, meaning it's all ingrained in our DNA has a biological preset.  

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of the clients who has lost now over 40lbs since she has been working with me for a few months for about 3 days a week and still continues to progress & lose weight from a biomechanical, mental, & intelligential level.
