Trainers At This Studio

Liz Talavera

Facility Manager

Personal Trainer at:
River Oaks, TX

Liz’s passion for health and fitness started at the young age of 8, making up dance and fitness routines in her living room. At the age of 10, she had her first set of dumbbells, and it just went on from there. She was always fascinated with the mechanics of the human body, and how nutrition and exercise affect it. Not surprisingly, in college, she studied Kinesiology, Nutrition, and Exercise Science and taught fitness classes.

Today, Liz is a busy wife and mother of three very active boys. Her strong desire, passion, and drive for success in the world of fitness helped Liz achieve her goal of becoming a certified Personal Trainer through the National Federation of Personal Trainers and The Perfect Workout. This has given her the skills and knowledge to help her coach her clients through performing advanced exercises more safely and effectively.

In Liz’s pursuit to put her Personal Trainer certification in effect, she immediately began teaching exercise in group fitness classes and even competed in a fitness competition. It wasn’t until she found The Perfect Workout that she felt like she found the environment that matched her skills and desire to impact clients 1-on-1. After a month of interviews, Liz was hand-selected to join the Dallas team of trainers.

She began her journey as a Personal Trainer in the Park Cities studio and was promoted a year later to the West Plano studio. Liz was a natural fit to coach clients 1-on-1. “I grasped it right away.” In fact, the semi-private setting was the exact type of environment Liz had in mind when she entered the field of fitness. “I love being able to build relationships with my clients. It’s an honor and so rewarding being able to help people feel better, reach their health and fitness goals and enhance the quality of their lives.”

Slow-motion strength training has enhanced Liz’s life as well. “I have become significantly stronger since incorporating the slow-motion method.” Getting trained by her fellow trainers, alongside Intermittent Fasting has actually helped Liz lose 25 pounds! “I am the most confident I have ever been and I get to share these tools with people every day.”

Teaching her clients the importance of safe strength training and proper nutrition ignites so much joy for Liz. One of her most memorable clients was in West Plano. This client hadn’t weighed under 300 pounds in over 15 years. She and Liz worked hard on her consistent workouts and nutrition until she reached her goal. “The day she stepped on the scale and weighed 298 pounds … I’ll never forget it.”

After a year and a half of being the West Plano Manager, Liz and her family moved down to the Houston, Texas area. Luckily, The Perfect Workout has studios there and Liz was able to continue training clients and leading trainers in The Woodlands location where she remains today.

Being a natural leader, Liz has goals to keep growing and being a role model for her kids, trainers and clients. She hopes that her example will spark success in her studio and will help the development of her trainers.

Liz is always reaching to become the best version of herself so she can help pave the same path for others. “I want to continue managing and hopefully be a Regional Manager one day. I also plan to study functional nutrition and pursue becoming a nutritionist so I can help my clients even more.”

Nora Neely

Personal Trainer

Personal Trainer at:
River Oaks, TX

Ball of energy, Nora Neely, played most sports growing up, from softball, soccer, and basketball to gymnastics, track and field, and cheerleading. She was constantly "beating up" her body with jarring movements, overuse and little downtime (if any) for recovery. After graduating from Baylor University, Nora expanded her love for running and ran several half marathons and tested the waters with more traditional strength training and boot camps.

“Essentially, I ran my body into the ground and wound up with a torn meniscus, torn MCL and displaced patella along with several bouts of stress fractures, shin splints in both shins and issues with my shoulder popping out of the socket. It was time for a change!”

Nora discovered slow-motion strength training, and quickly found that she could protect her knees after surgery and help prevent more injuries, all while consistently being able to workout. “The Perfect Workout has truly transformed the way I look at exercise, my own fitness journey and my approach to workouts. I used to be an absolute workout junkie, doing everything and anything that would be considered movement at the gym. Instead of spending hours in the gym 6 days a week, I now workout at The Perfect Workout and can enjoy my extracurricular activities pain-free.”

In addition to being a Certified Personal Trainer at The Perfect Workout, Nora is also an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor, Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Yoga Teacher, CPR/AED certified and has worked for a medical device company with dietitians and physicians, and taught English overseas for 3 years, making her extremely experienced in working with people of all ages and ability levels. “I live, breathe, talk and LOVE fitness and nutrition!”

Nora really values the one-on-one training sessions with her clients, and helping them achieve their goals and improve their quality of life. She loves being a part of a team and company where all of the trainers really care and are committed to their clients and their own health and fitness journey.

“What we do is evidence-based, safe and effective and it's something that everyone can do, which allows me to work with young people and seniors looking for workout guidance. I love that The Perfect Workout encourages us to grow, learn and continue to educate ourselves and I am incredibly impressed with my own results and how my body has responded to the super-slow protocol.”

Joon Baek

Personal Trainer

Personal Trainer at:
River Oaks, TX

Joon Baek graduated with an Exercise Science Degree from the University of Houston. Shortly after he was introduced to The Perfect Workout and our unique method of strength training. After trying it for himself, he was pleasantly surprised at what he felt.

“I felt my muscles engaged in a way that I normally wouldn’t after a regular workout at the gym, and in a much shorter time as well. The efficiency of this slow motion weight lifting is what makes me such a passionate advocate of the method and a big motivation that led me to join ] The Perfect Workout team.”

Now that Joon is a Certified Trainer in our River Oak’s studio he is getting the chance to share his passion of exercise science and our effective method with clients each day. “I really look forward to the moments when a client tells me they can feel their muscles now, and that they have accomplished their goals through our personal training sessions together.”

All of the trainers at The Perfect Workout aim to help our clients achieve their goals and improve their quality of life through slow motion strength training, and to help them feel more confident about their physical capabilities every day. “I like to push clients hard but at the same time, I take great care in making sure that I am not pushing them too far past their limit, ensuring that they receive a good workout but are able to keep coming in for their sessions!”
