Trainers At This Studio

Gilbert Amador

Facility Manager

Personal Trainer at:
Mission Viejo, CA

Gilbert was working in apartment maintenance and felt unfulfilled. He wanted a career where he could help people directly, and give them valuable tools to improve their lives. He had thought about becoming a Personal Trainer and was really interested in fitness, but didn’t know how to break into the industry. An acquaintance, and Personal Trainer, introduced him to The Perfect Workout in 2014 and he’s been a trainer with us ever since.

Since Gilbert was a kid he had passion for fitness. He played many sports and did physical activities, and found that he loved staying active and getting fit. For most of his life, exercising was a hobby he excelled at so he decided to take his knowledge of athletics and exercise and transform it into a career and help people.

Like many of our clients, Gilbert had never tried slow-motion strength training before. He thought it sounded a little too good to be true, but after his first 20-minute workout he left feeling the same sense of accomplishment that he felt after 2 hours at a traditional gym. He applied to join The Perfect Workout and was thrilled when he was selected to join the team. After going through his training to become a certified Personal he joined the Mission Viejo studio and still trains there today.

After two years, Gilbert was promoted to Facility Manager of the Mission Viejo studio which gave him a new perspective on the role of trainers in a workout environment. He believes that when trainers feel supported in their careers, they’re most motivated to support their clients and cheer them on. “Being a cohesive team creates the best studio environment for clients to feel safe to push themselves and get the most out of their workouts.”

The most satisfying part of Gilbert’s role as a Personal Trainer is guiding his clients through both physical and emotional changes. “A lot of people aren’t happy with their bodies, so it’s my job to help work through that.” Gilbert sees Personal Trainers as “energy boosters and confidence builders,” people who make clients feel at home and inspired to make positive change.

When Gilbert isn’t at the studio, he’s either playing soccer or cheering for the LA Galaxy. He also loves traveling, to Europe, Mexico, Canada - everywhere he can. Another hobby of his, which he’s been known to incorporate in his 1-on-1 time with clients, is stand-up comedy. You can catch him doing gigs all around Orange County, “I haven’t bombed yet!”

Gilbert is grateful for The Perfect Workout, because it allows him to pursue his passion for fitness and as well as all of the other things he loves. “If I hadn’t found The Perfect Workout, I would have been stuck doing the same thing, and it wouldn’t have fulfilled me. But here, the other trainers and Facility Managers help me believe in myself, and they inspire me every day.”

Robert Travis

Personal Trainer

Personal Trainer at:
Mission Viejo, CA

Rob Travis dropped 100 pounds in his first year at The Perfect Workout and now teaches his clients everything he learned from that experience. Rob played sports and has weight trained since he was young but after a knee injury curtailed his activities, he found himself weighing in at 300 pounds. Rob’s dedicated nature fueled him to change his body and lifestyle altogether. He went to the library and read everything he could about nutrition. He watched videos, taking a little something from each one, and then put his plan into motion.

While Rob was on his weight loss journey, he performed strength training 5 to 6 times a week for 2 to 3 hours a day. Although he was losing weight he found it hard to build muscle. He could no longer lift his old bench press weight of 185. Then Rob found The Perfect Workout!

After 6 months of slow-motion strength training, only 20-minutes twice a week, he walked back into his old gym to see how much he had improved. 160 pounds felt very light, so he raised it to 185, then to 200, then 225…finally maxing out at 260! He had never seen such a drastic improvement in his entire life! He was amazed, and became 100% sold on slow-motion strength training.

In March of 2017, Rob joined The Perfect Workout and has been an integral part of the Long Beach training team ever since. He loves having a private setting to candidly discuss clients’ goals and the obstacles they may be facing.  He uses his training and his own experience to set an example for his clients. “As trainers, I believe we need to walk the walk for our clients, and this has helped me be accountable to my clients and myself as well.”

With amazing support from his team at The Perfect Workout, Rob knows he can achieve anything for his clients. He firmly believes in evidagain–and his results can back that up! Rob wants to devote his life to showing others the method that has helped him maintain his weight loss and add 30 pounds of muscle to his frame.

Rob firmly believes that his weight loss journey has helped shaped him into the best trainer that he can be for people trying to lose weight, or who are injured and wary of strength training. “Working out is possible even when you are injured, and it is essential to your recovery!” After losing his weight, Rob’s own back and knee pain have almost disappeared.

When not in the gym, Rob loves to get outdoors. He goes backpacking, hiking, camping, and rock climbing. He loves to swim and play sports like beach volleyball, tennis and flag football. He’s up for anything active! When recovering from his workouts, you can find him playing chess or relaxing with a good Sci-Fi book. He even hopes to write a book about his own journey one day!
