Trainers At This Studio

Robert Wight

Facility Manager

Walnut Creek & El Cerrito, CA

In September 2014, Rob was working in a local steakhouse, where he didn’t feel he was using his talents or reaching his full potential. He had a love for fitness and strength training, so he decided to turn them into a career and joined The Perfect Workout’s training team. He was a little skeptical about slow-motion strength training, but after researching the science behind it and trying the workout for himself, he was sold.

Rob became a certified Personal Trainer and has been coaching clients in the San Francisco Bay Area ever since. Rob is true to The Perfect Workout method and still does sessions at our facility for 20 minutes, twice a week. He realizes that the more he does The Perfect Workout himself and with our trainers, the better he will be able to coach our clients. 

Working with clients 1-on-1 allows Rob to give each person customized coaching in their workouts. He loves getting to know each client and what makes them tick both physically and mentally. “Finding unique ways to encourage each person is part of the fun”. 

Hearing stories about how The Perfect Workout has helped clients outside out of the studio is one of the perks to being a trainer. One of Rob’s favorite success stories was when he received a letter from a client who had previously had a hip replacement. She had to go in for another one, but because she had gotten so much stronger through slow-motion strength training, the second surgery went off without a hitch. She was back to full health in no time, feeling better than she ever had. “It’s so fulfilling to see people transform their lives.” 

In May 2016, as The Perfect Workout was expanding in the Bay Area, Rob was promoted to Facility Manager of the studio. As a trainer and manager, he’s constantly improving his own fitness knowledge in order to best serve his clients and fellow trainers. He’s found that leading a group of passionate trainers has fueled his own passion for the workouts even more. “This was the career step I needed. My biggest joy is seeing trainers develop, in their training and in their careers.”

Life for Rob has become so much more fulfilling than in his bartending days. He’s started an exciting new life with his fiancé and he’s added to his expertise with a Master’s Degree in Business Management. Rob’s learned valuable leadership and business skills he can use in his career at The Perfect Workout and his personal life. With many responsibilities on his plate, his own slow-motion strength training regimen has kept him grounded. “I was in good shape before The Perfect Workout, but now I’m a lot stronger and with a lot less effort!” 

Rob has led over 8,000 training sessions and he’s not stopping anytime soon. He sees big things to come for the Walnut Creek studio, and he can’t wait to see where The Perfect Workout is headed next.

Anton Lucido

Personal Trainer

Walnut Creek, CA

Anton grew up knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that he would become a professional wrestler. However, he  noticed in high school that, no matter how hard he followed Hulk Hogan’s advice, he wasn’t seven feet tall or weigh 300 pounds. He experimented with weight lifting as a teenager, but wasn’t noticing real changes. Then he decided that perhaps he should pick a more realistic goal for a job—so he decided he’d be a Broadway actor! Turns out that wasn’t easy either. Weird, right?

That’s when Anton went back to pursue his dream of being involved with wrestling but he knew it would take determination. He began taking weight and strength training seriously, and found a love for self-improvement. And ultimately he  became a Professional Wrestling Trainer and never looked back. “If you can be better today in any way, shape, or form than you were yesterday, you will always be on the right track.”

Anton began teaching and training others in wrestling in 2015, and discovered a real passion for helping others learn how to better themselves. He realized he could take his passions for weightlifting and teaching others and further his career by entering the world of Personal Training. “I love helping someone grasp something they didn’t before. Seeing that spark of understanding is really cool.”

In 2018, Anton was selected to join The Perfect Workout and he became a Certified Personal Trainer for the Walnut Creek studio. Anton wakes up each day excited to guide and motivate each one of his clients at The Perfect Workout to safely and effectively pursue their own personal health and fitness goals.

Danica Cramer

Personal Trainer

Walnut Creek, CA

While Danica Cramer received her BS in Agriculture Business from Cal Poly she has always had a deep passion for nutrition and fitness. 

Danica used to spend 2-3 hours in the gym every day. Despite her love for fitness, her joints were inflamed and painful from overuse. She needed to find a workout that was low impact on joints but still produced results. In her search she found slow-motion strength training and devoted herself to becoming an expert at it. “Once I fully committed to the workout, I started to see physical changes in my body. My arms were becoming more toned and I was gaining muscle fast. The joint pain I was having was basically non-existent as well.” The slow-motion technique paired with a change in her diet made the difference and helped her lose 20 pounds and gain more muscle than ever. She then wanted to  help people understand that “the time spent working out doesn’t directly correlate to results gained. Resting is a huge part of letting your body progress.”

It was only a matter of time before Danica received her Personal Trainer certification and joined The Perfect Workout. “I always joke that I lost a hobby once I started working here, because that time I used to spend at the gym isn’t necessary anymore.”

Being able to connect with clients on such a personal level happens in the 1-on-1 environment at The Perfect Workout “The connection I make with my clients is even more special because I get to help them improve themselves every session. It becomes a fully immersing experience for both of us: emotionally, mentally, and of course physically.”

One of Danica’s clients, a 93-year old man, continues to live his life the way he wants because of his regular strength training routine.” He plays table tennis regularly, so we work on balance and keeping his core strong. He also recently went to Egypt and didn’t have any trouble keeping up with the group he was with. He inspires others to continue to work towards their fitness goals.”

When not working Danica enjoys crafting, doing yard work, hiking, and spending time with her husband. He is currently teaching her to paint, which has been challenging but rewarding. “I also love to sing and play the guitar or ukulele.”

Citing her own success, Danica is a huge proponent for The Perfect Workout. She looks forward to helping more and more clients reach their own personal health and fitness goals.

Noel Yergovich

Personal Trainer

Walnut Creek & Danville, CA

Noel has always been active and into fitness. Growing up she was into sports, playing soccer, softball, swimming, running, hiking, and doing anything active! Noel became an aerobics instructor after college and continued to play adult softball, run, coach soccer and compete in races.

A good friend of Noel’s that had been a part of The Perfect Workout for over 10 years, introduced Noel to our slow-motion strength training. While she had always been into strength training, she was amazed to see the almost instantaneous results once she implemented slow-motion strength training. Having been a fitness instructor before Noel decided she wanted to become a Personal Trainer and after 10 years of being a client, Noel joined the team. “I love the The Perfect Workout and I jumped at the opportunity when it became available.”

After getting Certified, Noel joined the East Bay team and now trains clients in Walnut Creek and she loves every second of it. “Working with clients 1-on-1 gives me the chance to inspire others with something I’m passionate about and that will improve their health and quality of life.”

Noel is definitely stronger than she’s ever. She stopped running a few years ago because of knee pain. But in 2018, she decided to run a half marathon and experienced no pain whatsoever, because her muscles were so strong around her knee joints from her training sessions. 

Not only is Noel feeling the difference, but her clients are getting results too. One of her clients has gone through multiple surgeries from breast cancer, and keeps returning as soon as she can because she recognizes the importance of her body being strong for recovery and maintaining a healthy lifestyle moving forward. “I am so inspired by her determination.”

Noel loves that she can apply her passion for fitness to her career at The Perfect Workout. “It’s a win-win.” When she’s not in the studio, she is out being active with her three children, whether it be hiking, biking, swimming or playing softball. “I’d love to compete in a Spartan race and really challenge my own personal strength. I’m on a mission to constantly grow, learn, and challenge myself both personally and professionally.”
