Iron Orr Fitness Personal Trainers San Diego BBB Business Review

Can you believe this guy???  Nick has NEVER had any previous experience in the gym and turned into a complete BEAST!  Nick followed the guidance from one of the BEST personal trainers in San Diego, Brett Wheeless!  Brett, being a top tier certified personal trainer, knew Nick didn't have any experience in the gym and laid out a very gradual and consistent plan, which paid off in tremendous dividends.  Nick has gained over 26 pounds of pure and lean muscle with strength and endurance!  This is functional muscle people!!

Unlike most trainers that see a blank slate and try to push their clients to get gains too quickly, Brett brought Nick to his goal without getting him hurt.  Our personal trainers have voted Best Personal Trainers in San Diego for a reason; we CARE about our clients and the reviews show it!

👏Keep up the incredible effort, Nick!  We’re grateful for the opportunity and trust to help you transform your health and fitness 🙌

 

Balaji is a former military officer who really wanted to live the life he had enjoyed for so many years.  He wanted to be able to run, move, live without pain in his knee and shoulder.  We've had hundreds and hundreds of clients come to us of all ages with pain, and we work with clients to help them become pain free!  He also gave us the order of running, strength & endurance.  Balaji leaned on his military mentality for discipline to commit to working with our personal trainer, Matthew V.!  But rather than trying to overhaul everything at the start, Balaji followed the detail plan laid out by his personal trainer, Matthew and have earned incredible results.

Balaji’s results are what most dream of!  Can you imagine your pain gone?  Balaji is NO LONGER IN PAIN!!.

👏Keep up the incredible effort, Balaji! We’re grateful for the opportunity and trust to help you transform your health and fitness 🙌

Josh’s results are fabulous!  His desire to improve his ability to dance🕺was his impetus to seek our help.  In just three months Josh committed himself to working with his personal and private trainer, Matthew V., and found himself losing 6% body fat.  Over time, these incremental changes lead to the amazing results he’s achieved today.  Don't trust us, trust the HUNDREDS of patients that have given us 5 Star Reviews and Voted us Best Personal Trainers in San Diego!

🏆Keep up the incredible effort, Josh! We’re grateful for the opportunity and trust to help you transform your health and fitness 🙌

Evan is a BEAST! 🙌 Here is his review of Brett and Iron Orr Fitness!

"If you’re interviewing several trainers to see who is the best fit for you, you need to include Brett of Iron Orr Fitness. I came into their gym a 35 year old who hadn’t worked out, well, ever.  Playing sports, sure, but a gym workout was a daunting idea!  I wanted to make a change...get out of my lanky, skinny fat frame. A little over a year later, Brett has gotten me from zero gym experience to 5x/week, 19% body fat to ~11%, and up ~15 pounds of muscle!  Brett has been there through my negativity, keeping me on track with the right amount of push. Neither the physical nor mental results were an easy task for me, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without Brett there every step of the way. If I could afford to start each and every day with a workout with Brett, I would do it in a heartbeat!  Give Brett the opportunity to help you with whatever gym desires are, and I promise you will not regret it."

-🔥Evan Potman

LiHao’s results are nothing short of amazing! How did he get amazing results? From day 1, all that LiHao had to do was commit to working with a personal trainer. Ultimately, long term lifestyle changes would need to be made. But rather than trying to overhaul everything at the start, Lihao made incremental changes to his workout program and lifestyle. Over time, these incremental changes lead to the amazing results he’s achieved today.

While LiHao was at a summer internship as part of his C.S. Major at UC San Diego, he realized that he wanted to fully commit to his fitness transformation. LiHao dialed in his nutrition, off-day workouts, and cardio which all propelled his results into another level. Now that LiHao has lost the weight, his main focus is to get even stronger - and he is! Squatting over 300 is impressive by any standards.

Keep up the incredible effort, LiHao! We’re grateful for the opportunity and trust to help you transform your health and fitness 🙌

Chelsey gets in to the gym and works hard! She's ready to turn it up a notch and her trainer Brett is there to keep her on track, focusing all her energy towards nothing but REAL RESULTS! This is just the beginning of Chelsea's progress so stay tuned for more to come.

What does a 15lb muscle gain look like with exercises? That's going from only being able to do 1 pull up, to doing pull ups in quick sets of 7,5, and 5 reps! That's taking squat, bench, and deadlift from just a little over bar weight to squat 185x4, bench 135x2, and deadlift 195x3! Joe's aiming to put on at least another 10lbs of muscle, and we're confident we'll make that happen. You're a beast, Joe.

Hyunbin is an economics major at UC San Diego and trains 3 times a week with his trainer Matthew Vanni!

Stella is a killer athlete and is always striving to become even better! In the picture, she's doing a 30-second clap push-up to 30-second chin-up in a rapid circuit! She made the varsity team as a freshman, and with her dedication and training, she's building a bright future🌟🌟🌟

Those biceps speak for themselves💪

Working out doesn't always have to be about getting buff or lean! It can help you do amazing things out in the real world. Liz and Ryan have been training with Brett for about 6 months now, and have used their progress in the gym to fuel their 65 mile hike through the Scottish Highlands! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

From the circuit style training to help with endurance, to the lower body exercises to help with the climb, and the mental and physical focus to help push through when things got tough - training has absolutely helped them make the most of their awesome trip! Liz and Ryan - we're honored to have you as clients!

Akshay is a Master's Student in Electrical Engineering at UCSD. He came to us to strengthen his lower body and improve agility - and his sports-specific training with Mark has done just that! From Bulgarian Split Squats with 70lb dumbbells - to sprint training, Akshay is CRUSHING his goals!

Nancy is able to squat under the barbell! When she started training with Chelsey, Nancy suffered from sciatica pain and had difficulty doing squats. Now she's crushing the squats, is no longer in pain, AND has gained lean muscle during the process! You are such an inspiration Nancy! It took a lot of effort to get here, but it's so exciting to see what you've accomplished! With your attitude, surely there's more to come☺️

Cindy initially started training to get in shape for her new grandson. She now has the endurance to babysit her grandson for the whole weekend! Cindy always has a go get it attitude! You can see here that she’s doing Plyo Ball V-Ups - great for core strengthening. Building up her core will allow her to be able to play more with her grandson and make picking him up easier! 👶🚼

Neevan was looking for a personal trainer to help with his marathon performance, and to get lighter. Since training with Brett, he's significantly improved his running game! Neevan has now increased glute activation, hip mobility, core strength, OH and shaved an hour and a half off his marathon time! Neevan is definitely a hard worker and we're proud for him and his results!

Holden has made huge strength gains. He can now bench press 105 lbs for 3 perfect reps!💪 When we started, he had a hard time controlling the bar with no added weight (45lbs.) Awesome results, Holden! This guy is on fire🔥 check back in a few months because he’s only going to keep getting better✅

Vaishakh is a PhD student at UC San Diego, and came to us after losing 20lbs on his own. He was looking to put on some muscle, and we helped him do just that! When you take determination like Vaishakh's, and combine it with the expert guidance and direction of a professional, amazing results are possible!🏆👏

Check out that 50 - yes FIFTY - inch box jump!(127cm) Not only has Adam put on muscle and shed a lot of fat in his 4.5 months of training, but his athletic skills and basketball performance have greatly increased🏀🏀🏀

Interested in learning about jump training and athletic performance? Adam's trainer Mark wrote a blog post about that here

Stanley is a university professor and researcher, and has been training with us for a little over a year now. He is often out of town (or out of the country even) giving lectures, so his results are that much more impressive! His main goal was to lose weight, but Stanley has also gained muscle and strength in the process.

Robert is a full-time graduate student at UCSD!

Danyel is a fulltime Anthropologist at Ancestry.com and is newly married. She had no idea she would love coming to the gym! Training with KD has changed her life; she never expected to fully recover from her dislocation, but is now stronger and fitter post injury! Her strength often surprises her and everyday life has become easier: tasks around the house, carrying groceries, lifting boxes, running with her two dogs, and more!

Overhead Press PR: 155x1

Mohanram loves to hike and has hiked Mt. Witney!

Allie doesn’t get tired anymore when squatting next to her students’ desks & has more energy to devote to them!

Allie is a full time Elementary Special Needs Teacher who has been active her entire life. Since training with Mark, she has lifted more weights that ever before, and is now in better shape than she was for her wedding! Training has empowered her and she applies mental strategies learned from training to deal with everyday life stress. She is set onto a positive cycle of seeing progress and feels a true difference in her body. One of her favorite aspects of training is that Mark is very attentive and incorporates exercises she enjoys! She has hit a massive Squat PR of 205x2 and is shooting for a 250 squat in the future!

Nikita is completing her Masters in Computer Engineering at UCSD and is a movie fanatic. She has torn both ACLs & has a pinched nerve. Her main goal was to find a way to exercise without pain, which is now possible thanks to KD! Before training, doing normal tasks (carrying her own groceries) was impossible to do without aggravating her pinched nerve. Nikita has now gained the FREEDOM to do everyday tasks EASILY and most importantly PAIN FREE!

When Leo went back overseas to visit his family, EVERYONE noticed how different he looked!

Before training with Brett, Leo could hardly bend over – and deadlifts would always hurt his back. Now Leo is back pain free and lifting stronger than ever! His endurance is awesome and can play basketball much longer.

Allison is a professional and mother, and prior to starting training was the heaviest she had ever been because life had gotten in the way. Her decision to start training was on an impulse, but has turned out to be THE BEST MONEY SHE HAS EVER SPENT! Now that she is confident in herself, she can enjoy life more with her 8 year old daughter. In addition to being in better physical shape, she has also improved her emotional health and feels way better in all aspects of life!

His friends, coworkers, and family all say
“WOW Chris! You’re looking REALLY GOOD!”

Chris works full time at an overnight express delivery company and prior to training had NEVER WORKED OUT BEFORE. He had a pivotal moment where he realized he was getting really unhealthy when he nearly grew out of his clothing. He refused to go up a size and he knew that he needed to make a change for himself & his health! Chris didn’t know what to do to start his fitness journey, that’s when he found Iron Orr Fitness. Since training with Paul, not only has achieved phenomenal results, but he has also found a great sense of community and is part of a FAMILY here. Working out is therapy for him now and it’s a part of his new lifestyle!
