I have spent the last 20 years of my life with chronic low back pain. As I aged, the pain worsened and at times I was totally handicapped. I finally decided that I was not going to continue to live this way and enrolled with Personal Trainers of Los Altos. Within a matter of 2 weeks doing the correct exercises and stretching techniques I was noticing a significant difference in how I felt. I have been working with them for a few months now and I no longer have any back pain. I am still very mindful of the work I need to do on a daily basis, but I am so grateful to these marvelous trainers for the help they have given me. My life is so much more enjoyable now.

I especially thank Dan and Ryan for their patient work with me. Their professionalism and sincere interest in helping me was evident always. They are truly experts!!!

I highly recommend Personal Trainers of Los Altos to anyone who wants to live a healthier lifestyle and feel their very best. I have made such progress and am forever grateful.

Thank you very very much,

What we are accomplishing has greatly enhanced the quality of my life.

Dr. John Schmaelzle, M.D.

I've been coming here for over 5 years now and find the exercise program here with its attention to technique combined with the science of muscle control very beneficial to achieving results. I started out with the aim of correcting my lower back problems but have since learned to improve my posture and develop greater balance in overall strength as a means to achieving that. Everyone that I've worked with here has been friendly, knowledgeable and good to work with.


As an avid runner, I still need strength training. I have entrusted Personal Trainers with the training of both my parents and my daughter.

Dr. Van Dalsem, M.D.

I am confident I can work to my capacity without injury. As an older client, maintaining and improving my strength allows me to enjoy life.

As a former professional football player, power lifter and all-around gym rat, I know what it's like to push one's body to its limits. That, plus eight surgeries and numerous broken bones is why, at 45, my joints hurt! I tried two other well-known local personal training facilities, and I knew more than the trainers! Personal Trainers of Los Altos is knowledgeable and excellent at working the large and small joint supportive muscle groups as well as documenting all workouts to track progress.

I have been training here for over ten years. The trainers are so committed to safety, the gym is spotless, and there is an academic approach to weight lifting that ensures confidence and results. I'm very excited to be working with Dan and kettlebells. He is one of a few kettlebell certified trainers in the area and this type of weight training is efficient and productive.

A year and a half ago I started at Personal Trainers and they have worked with me to help my bad back get stable. I now can take those 8-12 hour vacation trips, climb lots of stairs and sleep better because of the personal work Dan has done for me. Each session is one on one with exercises and instruction personally tailored to you.

I highly recommend it for anyone serious about their personal health and well being.
