Timothy Pickens

Timothy has been enamored with working out since he was 15 years old. He was introduced to weight training early on in life and it quickly became his drive and passion. Being a Personal Trainer has been a lifelong dream and he’s thrilled to be helping people at The Perfect Workout.

Timothy has experienced a lot of personal success using slow-motion strength training by lowering body fat percentage and putting on a lot of lean muscle and mass. But his members' success is what he strives for each day.

“Al is a member of mine that was having terrible low back pain and balance issues. We have since then eliminated the low back pain and greatly increased his balance! He's super pumped and motivated every time he comes in. Knowing there's going to be more and more improvement with every session.”

Timothy believes working 1-on-1 with members I think it's the best way to train. “You get a better connection and can really trigger their focus and motivation.”

When someone begins training with Timothy their goals become his goals.

“I won't let them fail, because if they fail that means I fail… and I dont fail! I will hold you accountable and always push you to keep going.“

Zoey Zorigt

Zoey has always played sports and grew up wanting to become an athlete. Now, she is a Certified Personal Trainer, Sports Nutritionist, and bodybuilder. Zoey’s never ending curiosity about how the human mind works, and how nutrition affects the brain lead her to spend her free time reading, learning, exploring, and observing so she can help serve her members at The Perfect Workout.

When it comes to working with members, Zoey appreciates the 1-on-1 training in a quiet and cool studio where the member is the main focus.

“I personally believe 1-on-1 training results in productive workouts and expedites the learning process of any exercises or machines thus results come quicker.”

Zoey also believes the private setting at The Perfect Workout studio makes workout quality much better. She feels she can learn more about her members, observe their techniques and forms, and understand them more. That way, she can strategize my coaching accordingly.

Nothing beats the daily wins we see in the studio and one of Zoey’s favorites was when one of her members came in and said, “Hey Zoey, I think I have triceps now. I am feeling them!”

Zoey says, “We want to enjoy the simple things in life, and really live life instead of thinking about how to live it. Strength training and proper nutrition play a vital role in one's well being and quality of life. Being a part of someone's journey towards improving their overall well being makes me feel fulfilled. I care about my members, and check in with them consistently. I always ask them for feedback, and if they want to learn or try a new exercise or form.’

April Storer

Nutrition and Kinesiology student April, is passionate about health, fitness and nutrition. She received her first health book when she was a teenager and became very excited about learning how food and fitness can change our physical and mental health. 

Now, as a trainer at The Perfect Workout, April has worked with many members who have experienced success. “They love what it has done for them. One member in particular said how she can spend time with her grandchildren, picking them up and playing with them because of the workouts. I want to be there to help people get stronger so they can live their life to the fullest.”

April has also experienced some of her own personal wins in her workouts. She feels stronger ever since she started doing slow motion strength training, and doesn’t experience some of the injuries or pain she used to when weight lifting.

April's goal is to get to know you and help you achieve your goals. “I'm a good listener, but I also want to impact your life by giving you real advice and pushing you as much as you'll let me.”

“I believe you will be so grateful that you came. The benefits of this workout will amaze you!”

Nico Jean

Nico Jean was born in Bayonne France in an agritourism lifestyle. As one might expect he has developed a passion for travel and is starting to build his cultural experience having already visited 15 countries. 

He first developed his appreciation for working out when he joined his high school Water Polo team freshman year. Competing with his teammates in many different categories allowed him to develop an appreciation for pushing the body's limits in a safe and regenerative manner.

After spending 9 months in Puerto Rico working as business development for a startup company in the age reversal industry, Nico got very interested in how to maintain body health in the 3 main categories of mind, body and spirit. Learning how to prevent muscle from developing atrophy over time and keeping the body in top shape both physically and chemically has become an obsession of his and is continuously learning. 

Nico was selected to join The Perfect Workout’s team of trainers, where he now works 1-on-1 with members in the Carlsbad area.

Nico would tell anyone that wants to develop strength and stay in great shape that The Perfect Workout is the ideal workout for any age and you will see results; whether on the progress graph quantifying the gains and or seeing the difference in the mirror.

Nico’s number one focus with his 1-on-1 members is good form, pain prevention and accomplishing their health and wellness goals. Working 1-on-1 allows for customization of workouts and a quiet and distraction-free experience allowing for mind and body connection to occur.

Nico prides himself on being a smiling and joyous person by nature and likes to see his members achieve their personal goals weekly. He also is a great listener and makes anyone he talks to feel special and safe. None the less Nico will push his members every workout with his confident and motivating voice towards muscle success. He will be tough with his members for all of the 20 min in a safe and goal oriented manner.
