I had tried EVERYTHING…I thought Rafael was just a personal trainer, so I didn’t have hugely high expectations that he’d be able to “fix” me but boy was I wrong.

Today was my last workout at the studio where it all started for me! When I found RPT Fitness I was pregnant and could barely walk due to an old injury in my low back that reared it’s ugly head as my body shifted and prepared for childbirth.

I had tried EVERYTHING…expensive pro athlete style physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, energy work, osteopathy, and finally a steroid injection into my SI joint. Even that only took away about 10% of my pain.

I thought Rafael was just a personal trainer, so I didn’t have hugely high expectations that he’d be able to “fix” me but boy was I wrong. Rafael is not just a personal trainer, he is an expert in corrective exercise - if you tell him where it hurts, he’ll work on the parts of your body that relate to that area. It was painful for a few weeks, but then…My pain started to wear off….

Long story short, I continued to see Rafael all through the rest of my pregnancy (up until the week I gave birth, weighing 202 lbs!!!!). I started back up with him 8 weeks postpartum, as soon as my doctor cleared me for regular activity, and have been seeing him ever since.

I feel stronger than I ever have, and in all the right ways, using proper form, building strength from the inside out with core work built into every exercise.

I’m sad not to have his gym just 6 minutes from my house (we’ve been so spoiled!) but I’m so excited his business has grown so much that he’s moving to a bigger space! No one deserves the success he’s experiencing more than he does, and I’m happy to have played a small part in that. Thank you Rafael, for your excellent work now and always, and I’ll see you Monday morning in your new gym!!

I not only feel stronger & more energized, but also smarter about what to work on

When I met with Rafael for a fitness evaluation I expected the standard measurements: weight, circumference of waist, chest, and various muscles, BMI, etc... what I didn't expect was how far beyond Rafael was able to go.

 

In addition to the standard he evaluated core strength (and weakness) and identified areas where I was experiencing pain, even before I mentioned them.

 

It turns out Rafael has a deep understanding of the muscular and skeletal system and he uses that knowledge to train you in ways that improve over all health from the inside out.

After only the first four sessions I not only feel stronger and more energized, but also smarter about what to work on and how to do it more effectively when I'm on my own.

If you're considering a personal trainer, I highly recommend giving Rafael a try. I have a feeling he will surprise you, too.

My nutritionist and primary care doctor have been amazed by my progress.

Rafael has been pivotal in my health journey. I had several issues that made exercising hard and have always struggled with sticking with a program, even with past personal trainers. But working with Rafael has been unmatched. I have GAINED muscle for the first time in years and quickly dropped weight. My nutritionist and primary care doctor have been amazed by my progress. If you are looking for a caring but straight-talking personal training who is both understanding but will keep you accountable, look no further. He is very experienced in successfully working with people with various chronic illnesses and injuries. I promise you, you will get results!

I came to Rafael after a double ACL tear/ surgery…I am now strong enough walk on my own.

I came to Rafael after a double ACL tear/ surgery that left me bedridden for 8 months, I was left unable to walk and gained 50 lbs in that time. Not only have I been losing weight consistently but I am now strong enough walk on my own. Rafael also wrote up a nutrition list specifically for me and my goals! The thing I like most about Rafael is that he understands that I'm human and I have off days with eating and never judges me if I had a stress binge! I don't feel like a kid in the principal's office and he is so positive and educates without being preachy!

In just under a month the results are evident…I came to Rafael with a short time-frame and Rafael hit it out of the ball park.

I visited Austin for a month and sought out a trainer during my stay. Just so happens that RPT Fitness was less than a 5-minute walk from where I was staying – and I’m glad it was. In the short amount of time that we had, Rafael came up with a plan for my goals (including a meal plan) and we got to working straight away. In just under a month the results are evident. It’s actually very interesting: pre RPT Fitness my main form of exercise was cardio, cardio and more cardio (also, cardio). I gave little to no attention to using weights and although the number on the scale was satisfying for me to see, overall my physical appearance (think thin but…marshmallow-y) wasn’t where I wanted it to be. After working with Rafael, I can confidently say that I’ll be incorporating resistance training/weights into my exercise. TBH I’m blown away at what a difference relaxing on my cardio only approach and adding in resistance training has down in such a short amount of time. LADIES, don’t be afraid of weights! I came to Rafael with a short time-frame and Rafael hit it out of the ball park. I’m very glad that I had the opportunity to work with him on my personal fitness goals - honestly, my whole concept of how to work out has changed thanks to him.

All workouts were tailored to me

Rafael is a great trainer! He is knowledgeable but fun. He really spent time to get to know me and my eating habits to help me reach your goal. All workouts were tailored to me and the hour was dedicated to helping me make the most of it.  Rafael was there every step of the way to teach me the correct way to lift, stretch, and set up a workout plan.  On days where I didn't want to show, he was my biggest motivator. Which was an important step in my routine. When you know what you're doing and have someone behind you to help, everything else falls in place & that's what Rafael is for.

It’s been absolutely worth the investment.

I've struggled with personal health for a while. Not just weight (although that's a big part of it) but living a lifestyle that I know will keep me healthy as I get older.

 

I've tried working out on my own, eating healthy on my own, etc. But the weight fluctuates, the motivation fluctuates. I didn't simply want to diet and have a quick-fix weight loss, I wanted to change my lifestyle.

Rafael has helped me with that immeasurably.

 

During each session, he's patient in teaching me correct methodology for the various exercises he puts me through. He motivates, but not in a mean way at all. He also tells me exactly what we're working on and why so I can better understand how it helps and why it's important, and teaches me exercises I can do on my own, even without any fancy workout equipment at home.

 

Most importantly, he has given me nutrition plans that have helped me eat right and aid the workouts, as well as cardio plans that I can do on my own outside of my two weekly sessions with him.

I've been working out with Rafael for about two months and my BMI has dropped about 5% and I'm not done yet. It's great because I don't have to feel bad or backtrack significantly if I have a fun weekend where I want to eat some pizza or some other junk. As long as I keep on track, I know I'm making progress.

I've lost fat, gained muscle, and created a more healthy lifestyle that I know I'll be able to more reasonably maintain if and when I start going off on my own.

No matter your personal health needs, Rafael is your guy. It's been absolutely worth the investment.

(And as a bonus, it's entirely COVID safe. Rafael wears a mask the entire time. I don't think I've ever even seen his face lol).

IS PAIN HOLDING YOU BACK?

Strength training is a very important step towards correcting your posture.  There are two other important steps to take first.

 

Tight neck and shoulders is a common problem.

Step 1. Correct your posture with myofascial release & flexibility.

Step 2. Improve balance and stability.

Step 3. Strengthen your joints and muscles for long term protection.

 

Think of your muscles as a corset or protective case around your joints and skeletal system.  Your joints are better protected when you strengthen those muscles.

Get started right now.
