Daniela Gomez

Personal Trainer

Personal Trainer at:
Menlo Park, CA

Daniela is dedicated to health and fitness and has spent a great deal of time and energy researching exercise. She would take her learnings and “experiment” on herself at the gym. It was a great learning experience but a tough one. Being self-taught in the beginning of her journey, she learned the “hard way” and experienced frequent injuries.

So, Daniela was amazed when she discovered the slow-motion method. “I had never seen as much progress in my own physique doing the traditional weight lifting methods I taught myself at the gym than I have doing this slow- motion workout method!” Not only was Daniela injury free, but she got stronger and her body fat percentage went down. She was even more motivated to compliment it with a healthier diet now that she began to see results. “I am in the best shape of my life. I am a true advocate of the slow-motion method and am sharing it with all my friends and family members!” Eventually Daniela began to train her sister and mother at the gym and that led her to become a Certified Personal Trainer.

Daniela joined The Perfect Workout and actively trains clients in the Menlo Park studio today. She enjoys meeting new clients and getting an understanding of their motivation for working out. ”I get inspired by hearing people’s goals so I can create an effective customized workout plan for each person.”

When Daniela is not changing people’s lives at work, she’s enjoying the outdoors, hiking, going to the beach, taking her dog out to new places, and exploring new restaurants with her sister and mother. “Listening to music puts me in a happy mood so you’ll always find me with a speaker playing my favorite songs and even dancing to them!”
