Review: Professor Barrientos says…

man_orange_square“Searching the web for a personal trainer in Miami to work with my wife and get her in better shape, we found Peak Physique and Performance. Both of us took the introductory/evaluation class and already there we knew we had found a place and a team we could trust. This was two years ago and we keep training at PPP 2/3 days per week. I am a runner but always had a posture problem, particularly in the back. My initial goals were to correct the posture, get my back and whole body stronger and balanced, and eventually to run faster. With no doubt I largely accomplished these goals and continue improving. What PPP offers is professionalism, experience and kindness. The group of trainers, directed by Lyen, are top quality, highly qualified and well versed not only in all possible kinds of exercises, muscle-specific or functional, but also in concepts of bio-mechanics, physiology and nutrition. I am a bio-medical scientist at the University of Miami, and appreciate the conversations I can have with Lyen and her colleagues on these subjects. After two years, I keep going to PPP because there is never a routine, exercises are slightly different every time and always accommodate to my current goals, and the team of trainers is always friendly. But mostly, because given their high level of professionalism, this is a team I know I can trust for my physical training necessities.”

Review: What Reinaldo thinks about us…

man_orange_square“I have started training regularly several times before but never kept it up because I didn’t see results and got bored. I’ve now been working out at Peak Physique & Performance for almost a year and I’m not stopping anytime soon. I’m finally seeing the results I was looking for and Lyen and her crew make me want to go.

I own businesses in Miami and Latin America and travel a lot, but when I’m in town, I go to PPP every day. It’s walking distance to my office and you can’t beat that for convenience. Even though I’m going often, they keep it interesting by mixing up my workouts. One day I do strength training with machines and free weights, another day I do boxing, another day a cardio circuit or core training…  Due to my schedule, I usually work with Lyen and Jairus and they both do an excellent job, they are great trainers with a lot of knowledge, experience and motivational skills. They kick butt but are nice and friendly.

PPP is run efficiently, things just work and I appreciate that. Since they only do personal training and have a spacious and well-equipped facility, it’s never crowded or messy. I also prefer the personal treatment by the owners and trainers and the focused training environment. It’s definitely what I need to make up for the frequent business lunches and my otherwise pretty sedentary lifestyle. I highly recommend Peak Physique & Performance!”

Review: Why Fernando is happy here…

Male torso logo“I was able to avoid back surgery because of Lyen and the team at Peak Physique. About 3 months ago I started with my workout sessions at PPP. At the end of the first week I already felt an improvement with the sciatica pain which I was used to having everyday. I’ve got 5 herniated disks.

Since then, I have been doing 3 sessions per week and the combination of stretching and weight lifting has not only made me cancel my already scheduled date for back surgery but has also given me confidence which I had lost a while ago – I had stopped working out since it would aggravate the pain each time. I am looking and feeling good again!

Lyen is an experienced personal trainer who understands that everyone is different and a formula that works for some clients will most certainly not work for others. Basically, it’s a highly personalized program which I like to think of as the anti-“CrossFit”.

The gym is clean, bright and airy. The equipment is new and team friendly. There’s free and easy parking most of the time which also makes it convenient. I highly recommend Peak Physique, specially if you have some kind of medical limitation when it comes to exercising. They may be the solution you have been looking for. It’s working for me…”

Review: Clinton is at the next level!

Male torso logo“I highly recommend Peak Physique & Performance in Miami. Lyen and Kolja operate a highly effective, enjoyable and professional fitness studio. Lyen and Rich are two of the most results focused, experienced and effective trainers I have trained with. On day one, they identified my fitness and health goals and then formulated a personal plan to achieve them. They constantly provided motivation, instruction and education throughout each session. I appreciate the personal attention and advice I have received to improve my health and fitness and correct and address my weaknesses. After almost a year at Peak Physique my mind, health and physique have improved. No matter where you start, they will take you to the next level.”

Review: Vanessa thinks it’s awesome!

woman_no_image_160“This is such a great place to receive customized training with results!! I got 3 different trainers in my rotations and they were all exceptional and very knowledgable. I worked mostly with Lyen and she definitely pointed out my weak points which no other trainer had in the past and she even made sure my posture was correct at all times for my workouts which is what most people do wrong and this really has helped me going forward!

Unfortunately I haven’t continued with them due to other financial obligations but if you have a goal in mind or want to really know how to work out for your body type or just need a great trainer this is the place to go and worth the investment!!”

Review: Nina is a fan!

woman_no_image_160“I have been training with various personal trainers for years, but got really serious about it 1 1/2 years ago. Recently, I started school in Miami and had to find a trainer here.

I found PPP online and it has been a great experience. I mostly train with Rich and he really knows his stuff. The workouts are always varied and extremely intense and challenging, which is what I was looking for. He is by far the best trainer I have worked with.

The gym is clean and beautiful, and the people who work there are very friendly and professional. They really understood what I was looking for. I couldn’t be happier.”

Review: Carla likes our Small Group Personal Training!

woman_no_image_160“I started going to the small group personal training 3 months ago. I absolutely love everything about it. Lyen is really great and very focused on form, which I appreciate even more after getting injured at a Crossfit place just a few months ago. I was very out of shape when I started and she would modify some exercises so I could do them and as i get stronger she motivates me to do more challenging workouts.

After 2 months i definitely noticed some changes in stamina and on my clothes too. Now after three months I continue to get fitter and the workouts are still challenging.

The facilities are great and the people you meet are great too. Kolja, the owner, is a very pleasant person but most importantly very interested in how the workouts r going. After looking for a bootcamp class for a while I am really glad i found PPP.”
