It truly is a great place to work out. – My introduction to Body Maxx was a gift certificate of 10 sessions with a trainer to help me get back in shape after having my baby. That baby is now 8 years old and I've LOVED going to Body Maxx ever since. When my 10 sessions were all used up, I realized that I did not want to return to my old gym. I had found a place where my body had made a healthy and noticeable transformation and surroundings that made working out something I actually ' wanted ' to do and not dread.
As I mentioned before, I have been going to Body Maxx for 8 years, and it truly is a great place to work out. I have had the great privilege to have Boba as my trainer. She works you out hard, but she takes the time to see that you do everything safely and correctly and she really pays attention to what your individual needs are. I'm always amazed at how quickly our sessions go and yet so much went into them and I feel like I accomplished something when they are over. ALL the trainers at Body Maxx are professional and top notch.
The gym itself has a great feel to it. It's bright and airy and clean and everyone is very friendly and yet respectful of your space. It's never too crowded, so I always am able to work out on whatever machine I want to that day. Parking has never been an issue. I just pull in, park my car, easily walk in and work out and am on my way again an hour later. It's in a perfect location with many healthy restaurants and shops around.
I feel very fortunate to have found Body Maxx. I lost my weight and got really strong and healthy working out there. If you're tired of the big, noisy and impersonal gyms and you're looking for a place that's a little smaller where you can get a great work out in a supportive atmosphere and leave with a smile on your face - then check out Body Maxx. Working out may be hard, but being at Body Maxx makes it more pleasurable.
NICE PEOPLE – The people here are passionate about sports and that?s always a good sign. The staff was very friendly and was able to answer my questions I had for my nephew and his up an coming game. They were able to give great advice and I really appreciated it. The prices are fair so this makes for a great store.
Worked for me, worked for my family – I tried everything I could think of to lose a substantial amount of
weight, and nothing worked for me until I started training with Boba
from Body Maxx. I'm not trying to say that everything else is a lost
cause, and this is the only place that works. Not at all. Finding
what works for you can be a very difficult, draining, discouraging
process, but when you finally do, it's such an amazing feeling. Body
Maxx worked for me, and I've since brought my entire family (two
daughters ages 21, 28 and one son age 25...my wife will be starting
this year after I'm through talking to her!) and they all had success
there. To each his own, but it never hurts to try for yourself, and I
really urge anyone who's looking to lose weight or get in shape to
stop by and check it out. Really made a huge difference in my life.
Like Floss for the Brain – Exercise is like dental floss for the brain. It's not easy
(especially at first) and in the beginning, it can be downright
painful and depressing. Anyone who tells you otherwise is just trying
to be supportive, but isn't being totally honest!
That said, it's still essential for you, no matter what age you are
and what your life situation is. Exercise can only improve your life!
And if you're going to take the journey, you might as well work with
the best tools.
Body Maxx is a small gym, but it has what much larger gyms often lack-
it's relaxing, never too crowded, and has a very friendly vibe that
makes you happy to be there working out. I've worked with Boba, the
owner, for several years now, and I'll give her the best compliment I
can possibly give- she's worth what she charges. I can't say that
about many things in life (who can?) but when you find something that
delivers what they promise, it's exciting.
Parking is convenient, the location is good (right next to a couple
sushi restaurants and near some big malls!) and you will get in shape.
REPEAT, YOU WILL GET IN SHAPE!
And as painful as it is in the beginning, it's one of the greatest
feelings in the world. Highly recommended!
The BEST gym! (no exaggeration!) – I don't know about you, but I've never been the kind of person that wakes up in the morning and just can't wait to jump out of bed and rush over to the gym to "get fit". When I did manage to drag myself to the gym, I found another battle that often deterred me - machines that didn't work, were dirty or unavailable. Trainers that were too busy being "cool" to care that my form was poor, or who were incompetent and didn't know that my form was poor. Clients (and sometimes staff) who were more interested in checking people out than working out. It's hard enough to get to the gym without adding all of these factors to it.
Body Maxx is on a completely different level! It's amazing! Who would have thought that there was a place where people genuinely care about your health and fitness. The equipment there is state of the art, clean AND available. The trainers are friendly and are experts at the top of their field. The clients are supportive and just frickin awesome people! It really makes you feel like you're part of a community rather than just another schlub paying your membership dues where no one cares if you come or not. I'm more inspired and motivated about my health and fitness than I've ever been and I'm in the best shape of my life. I'm so grateful that I discovered this place!!
Run, don't walk, to this gym – Body Maxx and Boba, owner/trainer, and her healthy concepts have been a part of our lives for over 20 years now. She hand picks the trainers which is why she has a loyal cadre of them, some there over 20 years as well.
The trainers actually develop personalized workouts taking into consideration personal wishes and limitations. It's not about you living up to the trainer's expectations; rather, it's about the trainer helping you live up to your own expectations. You don't turn your body over to them - they help you take control of your own body.
The gym clientele is a fascinating mix of professionals - younger and older - and even though your appointment may be only an hour, plan on two because of the interesting discussions always happening at the gym
A New Me – I am outdoors gal. Always has been. The thought of going to a gym as a Californian never made a lick of sense to me. I'd power walk, hike, run, or surf, whatever my schedule would allow me to do. But curiously, while I felt the cardio vascular activity was a significant source of exercise, my body, and expanding figure told a different story. As I approached 35, inches became impossible to lose. Pounds piled on. A friend of mine, who is polar opposite of me (would rather have a roof over her head then sky) finally encouraged me to meet her trainer Boba at Body Maxx. While my friend is not necessarily athletic, her strength, physique, posture and confidence impressed me, always. I always assumed she was just "built that way". I began training with Boba over 18 months ago. The combination of cardio (just 30 minutes!) and weights/resistance training was the solution that evaded me for so long. I NEVER KNEW! The gym is intimate, the staff and regular attendees are like family. We encourage each other day in and day out. Boba and Body Maxx are so important to the quality of my life and the smile on my face.
Changed My Life. – I've been an athlete my entire life and was always thankful for the fitness benefits that the competitive sports automatically provided. When I graduated from college and my athletic life changed due to work and other responsibilities, I found my fitness slipping away. Although... I'd like to think I maintained some sort of regimen all these years.
But it wasn't until I joined Body Maxx gym at the urging of a few friends that I realized it was all an illusion. My cardio and strength honestly just weren't the same. It was a rude awakening, if you will.
With the training expertise, commitment, genuine care and support of the owner, and my trainer, Boba Andric I truly not only feel, but am, stronger than I have been in more than a decade.
The gym is small, intimate, fun and private (which is why I'm guessing celebs like to come here). But once you commit to going, you start to see the same people, and build a comraderie with them.
I am a Body Maxx devotee for life.
Small Gym, Huge Results – Definitely NOT your basic cookie cutter gym (like Ballys or 24hr Fitness) Friendly atmosphere with staff who are knowledgeable and eager to help you achieve your goals, whether you're just getting back in shape, or training for a film or event. The trainers are interested in you succeeding in your goals. My results are obvious and undeniable!
Excellent facility and trainers – I am not a "gym-rat' by any means, but the conditions and support at Bodymaxx make it possible for me to stick to an exercise and diet regimen that I would otherwise probably never keep.
The personal attention is first-rate, the facilities clean and inviting; the staff totally knowledgeable and support; and the results clear.
I highly recommend them for anyone at any level wanting to improve physically
