Imagine my situation...I just got divorced, 47 white male from New York and out of shape starting again in Los Angeles...
I decided that the 1st thing I wanted to fix was my physical appearance and in order to do that, since I'm a very demanding person ( yeah I'm that kind of New Yorker and being a former Wall Street broker don't help ) I have to hire the best of the best.
After doing an intense research I finally decided to start training with Ruben...a total life changing experience...
His methodical approach to training, his vast knowledge and ESPECIALLY his enormous patience with me. He inspired me to work out everyday and reach my goals.
3 years later at 50, I lost 75 lbs and I'm dating a beautiful woman. I feel comfortable with myself again and in the best shape of my life.
I highly doubt I would have accomplished this without the help of Ruben. I can't really express how good he is at his job and I will be forever in debt to him.
Thanks for all Ruben, its an awesome experience to train with you !!!

Being a former athlete during high school caused me take things for granted. After getting married and working in a corporate firm, I gained 100 pounds in only 2 years, reaching 300 lbs. I'm a big guy but I decided that 300lbs was too much. in 2016 I started training with Ruben.
His understanding of the human body, vast knowledge in training systems and his simple approach to dieting has literally save my life and marriage. I just passed the age of 40 but I feel young and energetic like my high school days. I have got to thank Ruben for his patience and care for my situation.

Gracias Ruben!

It's been 2 weeks and I can't believe the physical change. The thing I love the most about Ruben is that he really works with me on a routine for my body type/goals but also has taught me how to eat in order to achieve my goals. I figure By January I'll have reached my goals!

I began training with Ruben at the precipice of age 49, my body broken from too much running. Now at age 50 I am once again invigorated thanks to the great training I have been doing with Coach Ruben; Boxing, BJJ, Circuit Training and Kettle Bell. In addition to the physical training Ruben has also provided me with new eating habits and changes to my former diet. Last, but certainly not least, Ruben will take your fitness journey personally, he will be there like a compassionate friend to help and guide you along the way. I am very grateful to Coach Ruben!
