There’s a whole category of people who miss out by not allowing themselves to be weird enough.

A California native, Pablo entered training after years of working in mental health and social services. His introduction to the gym world came as a way for him to treat personal struggles with depression and anxiety. After studying psychology and practicing therapy, Pablo saw firsthand the benefit of physical activity on his clients mental health. Drawing from personal experience and what was reported to him by his clients, Pablo made the transition from mental health to personal fitness training as a means to help others through exercise and fitness--a decision he is proud of.

Pablo marries his experience as a therapist with the demands of a trainer. Incorporating elements of mindfulness with the theoretical and practical knowledge of fitness training, Pablo advocates for the mind-body connection. His passions in exercise are traditional weight training and plyometrics. Pablo loves to move, often hiking, playing on the beach, and exploring the outdoors. On his spare time, he volunteers at SFSPCA walking and playing with dogs, fulfilling his love for any and all animals.

I’ve been working out with Pablo for a year and the results are amazing. I never imagined I could look so good in my mid-50’s and still get so many compliments! Pablo not only knows how to train bu also how to motivate. He’s also a great guy. He kicks my butt, but somehow I still look forward to my sessions with Pablo.

I have had several personal trainers over my 42 years and no one has even come close to Pablo in terms of knowledge, effectiveness and attention. I would not be surprised to find that he is the best trainer in San Francisco. Pablo puts a great deal of thought into planning each work out - he makes every session different and is always introducing new exercises to keep things interesting. The result is a fun and challenging workout that really pushes you to reach new limits and achieve results. I feel the strongest that I have ever felt in my life and I have only Pablo to thank for that. Aside from being an incredible trainer who takes his work very seriously, Pablo is a wonderful person - funny, kind and very caring. He is everything you would want in a personal trainer.

Working with Pablo has changed my life far beyond what I could have imagined. I was overweight, out of breath, low energy and needed help. Pablo helped me get inspired, unstuck and engaged. He has helped transform not only my body but my mind as well. What I once dreaded I now look forward to. What I used to avoid I take head on. 60 pounds down, endless energy, more patient, a better listener, a better partner at home and at work…It is hard to imagine my old life and impossible to think of not having my mornings with Pablo.
