  • review rating 5  Really great facilities but what sets it apart are the personal trainers. My personal trainer is Brett Wheeless and he has been excellent so far. I have seen a massive improvement in my strength and functional fitness and my back problems have virtually disappeared. He also always makes sure I am properly warmed up and never over exerts me to avoid injury.

She took her time to help me gain my mobility and strength and from there I kept progressing. I feel better than ever now! I highly recommend Chelsey and the iron orr staff:)

    review rating 5  Glad I decided to check out Iron Orr Fitness. It's a great facility, friendly staff, clean and great trainers. I have been working with Brett, probably the best trainer I've worked with this far. He definitely pushes you to perform at your best without overstepping. He pays attention to your form, making sure you are training without hurting yourself. At the end of each session, I am completely wiped and never leave without feeling like it was an excellent session. I highly recommend checking this place out and working with Brett. He's great to train with, fun conversations and responsive to any questions/concerns you may have.

  • review rating 5  My experience training here with Matthew Frankfurth has not only met, but exceeded my hopes and expectations. I cannot speak highly enough of him. I came in with my main goal being to build muscle and lift heavier. Having heard my friends's experiences with personal training elsewhere, I was worried that I would be spared things such as the bench press and dead lift because I am a girl. Not the case at all. Matt has supported my goals 100% from the start with so much enthusiasm and encouragement. I have been consistently improving in form and going up in weight week by week since I started, and my body feels amazing. I can always count on my personal training session to uplift me, energize me, and be a very effective stress reliever. It is very evident that Matt's background in physical therapy, years of education, first-hand experience in competitions, and history doing contracting for the military have made for him to be extremely competent as a trainer. Just as importantly, he’s such a genuinely nice person and so pleasant to be around. It makes getting your butt kicked by a hard workout not so bad! 10/10 would recommend to anyone!!

    review rating 5  Huge fan of Iron Orr Fitness. I recently came here looking to establish a consistent fitness routine, and had the opportunity to train with Brett! He is fantastic in all areas, and extremely knowledgeable about the human body. He is consistent and focused on helping me achieve my goals, and is quite explanatory when talking about the purpose behind each exercise and how it will lead me to reach my goals. He is patient and accommodating with my busy schedule and I could not be more pleased. Anybody who wants to set themselves up for success with their CONSISTENT fitness routine NEEDS to train at Iron Orr Fitness. Thank you Brett!!

  • review rating 5  I want to give a lot of thanks to Katie, the personal trainer who taught me many new exercises, dietary hints and body techniques. However what's more important, she taught me how not to give up and keep working on my body and health. Katie is very good, two thumbs up! Also a big thank you to Willy, the front desk guy who helped me a lot being extremely cheerful and supportive. Thank you, Maya

I'm noticeably stronger and leaner than before (all of my friends have commented on how much fitter I look, which is always a fantastic compliment). The whole team of trainers and the environment at Iron Orr are friendly and encouraging! Highly recommend Chelsey if you're looking for someone to motivate you to get strong and lean.

    review rating 5  Brett's a rare find as a trainer - he listens, has no ego, and makes you feel like a rockstar even when you're gassed from the volume workout he just made you do. I've received great feedback to correct my form in our workouts and he's great at keeping me motivated through our sessions. The attention I've received has been stellar and Brett's knowledge and experience of training is impressive, so I know I'm in good hands. In the past my biggest issue was going to the gym consistently, but training with Brett has been a breath of fresh air and has made something I normally dread into something I look forward in my day. If you want to feel like you're getting movie star attention - ask for Brett.

  • review rating 5  I was having a tough time staying consistent and seeing continuous results with my workouts so I began the search for a personal trainer and found Brett at Iron Orr Fitness! I have been training with him for over a month now and have seen results in my muscle gain, fat loss, and endurance increase. As a doctor I don’t have a ton of time to workout and Brett prepares workouts for me as well as nutrition plans to encourage me throughout the week and keep me engaged and focused on my fitness. Phenomenal trainer, 12/10 for Brett I would recommend him to anyone and everyone

    review rating 5  I first heard of this facility through yelp and as it is ranked as one of the best personal trainers in San Diego, I decided to book for a consultation and immediately started training with Brett. Me and boyfriend signed up for the partner sessions but due to our availability our number one concern was trainer flexibility. That being said, Brett has been great and remained flexible regarding scheduling despite of his own busy schedule. In regards to training, it gets very tough especially if you’re a novice in working out but Brett always takes his time to educate on proper posture/technique and takes his time to explain why/how specific exercises can and will help with achieving your personal goals. On top of that Brett is very motivating pushing you through every training session. He also goes out of his way and texts you personalized meal plans, training plans, and even training session reminders. Initially, my boyfriend and I only signed up for 10 sessions but seeing as to how good Brett’s training plan is, we decided to sign up for personal training in this facility for 12 more months. This facility definitely does not disappoint!

    review rating 0  I have been training with Brett Wheeless for just over two months. I'll divide my review into two parts, one of the gym and one of Brett specifically. Gym Review: I really like this gym compared to others I have tried. The equipment quality is very high. One can tell that they put effort into maintaining and servicing the equipment so that it is safe and clean. Their offerings span the full range of equipment and I've never found myself in a situation where I was unable to do an exercise due to lack of appropriate equipment. The gym is small compared to larger chain offerings, so if you go during the pre and post-workday rush hours, you will probably find yourself having to wait. Review of trainer Brett Wheeless: I am very pleased with the quality of personal training from Brett. Before starting training, I was a gym novice and very insecure with working out in the gym. In addition, I have a back condition that makes several exercises difficult or impossible. From the beginning, Brett has factored this into my training plan and so far I have been very pleased. I physically feel myself getting stronger with improvements to my posture, balance, and overall energy levels. I look forward to continuing to train with him! P.S. Fair warning, Brett has a tendency to request constant fist bumps. 😎

  • review rating 0  If you’re interviewing several trainers to see who is the best fit for you, you need to include Brett Wheeless 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!

    review rating 0  I signed onto facebook for the first time in apparently 12 weeks to write this review. Brett is an awesome trainer and has literally changed my approach to working out in ways that I didn't know were possible. I've been going to Brett Wheeless for a long time and among many other things, I've had two HUGE takeaways from our sessions together. 1. Brett has totally reformed my relationship with the gym. I no longer dread going to the gym, it actually lifts me up just being there. This is solely because Brett has made our sessions so enjoyable, I now have that positive association. 2. Brett has taught me that I am capable of pushing myself harder than I have ever pushed myself in my entire life. Literally did not know I could put in that much effort. So now all of a sudden all bets are off and I'm excited each time I walk into the gym to see how hard I can push myself -- mental toughness. The overall vibe of this gym is on another level, it's a very positive place in general and I recommend going even if you don't do the personal training sessions. While I haven't worked directly with any of the other trainers, they all seem friendly and on par with the level of quality I've had with Brett.
