About Reuben

I have been involved in fitness my whole life and I enjoy sharing my passion with everyone. Exercise can greatly improve the quality of one’s life and make day to day tasks much easier. It can reduce pain and offset the effects of chronic disease. It can improve confidence, improve appearance, and accelerate weight loss. It can greatly enhance athletic performance and boost recovery time from injury. Exercise is truly a panacea. My goal is to provide affordable exercise sessions to people serious about improving their lives. I do this through a variety of resistance training tools, such as traditional free weights, machines, suspension band training, kettlebells, resistance bands, medicine balls, physio balls, gliders, and bodyweight training, with aerobic training to maximize client results. I employ a variety of training methods, because every individual responds to a training stimuli differently, based on their genetics and previous training history. I have helped hundreds of people lose weight, increase their strength, recover from injury, and get ready for their sport’s season. I look forward to being your guide on your fitness journey. I've worked with pretty much everyone. I've worked with teens, people with mental and physical disabilities, pregnant women, the elderly, women getting ready their wedding, athletes preparing for a season, people rehabbing an injury,and everyone else. There is no typical session as there is no typical client.

I’ve trained with Reuben since 2013 and have gained enormous strength, and with that enormous confidence. He tailors workouts to each person’s needs, and is highly knowledgeable. He is highly motivating and pushes you to do what you didn’t realize you’re capable of. He works individually or with groups, and makes working out fun! He has a great knack for combining strength training with cardio to maximize your time and keeps things fresh and never boring. He’s always willing to be flexible with scheduling and was even willing to accommodate some ridiculously early workout times for me when my work schedule required. After a knee injury (not associated with training) he was able to modify my workouts to let me continue working out while simultaneously helping me heal the knee and gain strength back. He stays abreast of his field and is dedicated to his profession. Reuben is the absolute best!

I broke multiple contracts at a gym to follow Reuben to his new location... And that doesn’t even begin to describe how Reuben is the absolute best. He pushes you to your limit, without you even knowing. I’d leave our sessions feeling so good about myself, and that feeling would last until I woke up sore the next day - ha! He’s flexible with timing, which is an added bonus, and he’s reasonable money wise. As far as personal trainers go, he’s one of a kind. He cares about not only your fitness, but also you as a person. Hes a great trainer and great friend. Plus, his personality helps make the sessions fun! We are all very lucky to have Reuben available as a trainer. So, what are you waiting for?

I have been training with Reuben for 3 years now. He has helped me with many issues I was having. One being a bad knee which was very painful going up and down steps. I could not kneel. With Reuben’s expert help, my knee is perfect. I sit behind a desk all day everyday and I found myself falling on three different occasions and had no idea why. I mentioned it to Reuben, and he immediately started me on weight bearing balancing exercises and my legs and ankles are strong now. Reuben is the best trainer and I highly recommend him! You will be completely satisfied.
