Best personal trainers in the world

The personal trainers below are who I consider to be the best personal trainers in the world today.  These personal trainers heavily influenced me since I started in the personal training industry, they have been involved in personal training for decades and I would imagine will be personal training for decades to come.

Charles Glass is the most famous bodybuilding personal trainer I can think of.  Charles Glass was a competitive bodybuilder himself and now trains many of the worlds professional bodybuilders including Flex Wheeler, Chris Cormier, Dennis James and Gunter Schlierkamp.  Bodybuilding knowledge is something that takes decades to perfect and Charles Glass has been around for many of those decades of bodybuilding.  I couldn’t think of anyone who could give more accurate bodybuilding advice than him.  Charles Glass works out of Venice Beach the mecca of bodybuilding and spends most of his days standing side by side the pros guiding them with every detail to success at the Olympia competition.  Charles Glass does a lot of work for Bodybuilding.com where you can see him in video workouts demonstrating his personal training knowledge.  Charles Glass is also a regular writer for the bodybuilding magazine Muscular Development which he writes a monthly column.

Charles Poliquin is a Candian strength training coach who has trained many athletes including Donovan Bailey, the gold medal sprinter.  Charles Poliquin has a B.S.C in Kinesiology and a M.S.C in exercise physiology.  Charles Poliquin regularly writes for T Nation online.  Charles has published several books that have been translated into many different languages.  Charles created his own courses for personal training that are now highly regarded by personal trainers around the world.  Charles spends most of his time traveling around the world giving fitness seminars, personal training athletes and running his fitness business.

Victor Costa I only recently found out about Victor Costa when browsing Youtube workouts.  I saw Victor Costa on youtube and his bodily condition and workout principles shocked me, this is a man who performs each rep to as close to 100% perfection as you can get, isolating each muscle to the fullest.  Victor Costa has hugely influenced my own training and displays the way weight training should really be performed which sadly 90% of people who are involved in bodybuilding don’t do.  Victor Costa is now highly regarded by people around the world as one of best personal trainers in the world.  Victor received the Honorary lifetime certification by the International sports science association for his long standing contributions to the sport of bodybuilding.

Isaac's story

Because I am blind, I cannot learn new exercises by watching my trainer nor can he show me what I am doing wrong – he has to either verbalise the technique or demonstrate by physically making adjustments to my body shape.

For this reason, I need to work with a trainer who can effectively explain an exercise and describe the postures and workings of the body that correspond to the proper execution of that exercise. I have found such a trainer in Rob, and as a result, working out with him is both productive and enjoyable.

Through careful instruction and my conscious effort to comprehend and implement what I’m being told, I gain a greater understanding of the mechanics and purpose of an exercise than perhaps I would through visual imitation.

The team's knowledge, creativity and flexibility make training at MyFitness Studio both a worthwhile pleasure and an education.

I decided to invest in some personal training sessions six months before my wedding in July 2011 and have been training with Rob and the team ever since.

As is the case for so many brides (and grooms) to be, I was a bit nervous about the pressure of looking good on my wedding day. My objective was simply to lose some weight and tone up so I could feel confident and happy with how I would look in our wedding pictures.

At my first session Rob identified key areas for us to work on including my arms, thighs and bottom and how specifically to make all of those areas slimmer and tighter. I originally trained only twice a week and saw huge changes in my body after just a couple of months. My arms were noticeably toned and my bottom smaller and tighter.

The team gave me great nutritional information to ensure my diet supported my training and weight loss goals. By my wedding in July I had not only hit my weight loss target, I had toned up dramatically. I felt in the best shape of my life and as a result I felt confident and happy in my dress. That on-the-day confidence really shows through in our pictures and I’m so thankful to MyFitness Studio for helping me achieve this.

Our Fit for the Occasion sessions were the right mix of fun and hard work and I enjoyed them so much that I couldn’t give up training after the wedding.
