About five years ago I decided to make a change and stick with it. That change was my lifestyle. So I set out to not only look better, which is a bonus, but to feel better physically and mentally. I was tired of always being tired, not focused, and most importantly to me, not being able to do the physical activities I always used to do. Beach volley ball, hiking, mountain bike riding, surfing! I slowly started to realize I wasn’t doing the things I enjoyed doing. Instead, I was watching other’s do it. On TV!!! It was at that point that I took my life back and Elite Physique Fitness is where I went to get it.

I have been training with Jacob Barrena of Elite Physique Fitness (EPF) for the past three years now. Jacob is always very encouraging and has a vast knowledge of his profession, (Over 10 years experience in his field with multiple training and nutritional certifications). He always ensures that my technique is also correct to avoid any injuries, which means he actually cares and has a passion for what he does. I know I would never have achieved the level of fitness and wellness in the time it took me with Jacob on my own. Not only am I healthier now but also engaging in activities I had no interest in before. Why you ask? Because I can! And that’s a great feeling. I’ve lost a total of 30 lbs and 10% body fat!
I would recommend EPF to anyone wanting to make a change in their life. Whether it’s for health or physique, as long as you give it your all, you’re gonna win! I aim to continue to train and maintain a good level of fitness with Jacob’s help for a long time to come.
I really can’t thank Jacob enough.
