I've been training here for over 2 years and Gabriel is the most gentle and patient physical trainer. He doesn't yell or shame you. He doesn't 'Biggest Loser' push you until you fall over. His training is efficient and my results have been amazing. It took me over a year to break my bad habits in order see the results I wanted. But all that time he just said hey, keep showing up, that's all I want. And he was right. Eventually I began to feel better and more confident and that was the push I needed to start to make the bigger changes to my diet and mainly my alcohol consumption. Now at 42 my body is lean and strong. I feel the best I have ever felt. Gabriel's support, patience, knowledge, and consistency has allowed me to make the positive changes I desperately needed. Thank you Gabriel for being an incredible partner in my journey to being a better person physically and mentally. More...

Whatever might be holding you back from jumping into the amazing'ness of DeVine Physiques should be chucked out the window! Gabriel has expertly curated his business and with his overflowing passion for fitness it will spark excitement and passion for your health. He does one-on-one training (and group) in his perfectly sized studio off Ventura. He can be flexible with schedules if need be, and he can help with nutrition questions/concerns. More...

Gabriel has expertly curated his business to exude the perfection that everyone should be jealous of. He is caring, encouraging, supportive, congenial, and altruistic. He listens & crafts "your" personal workout plan, is an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community, and he is extremely inclusive of all races, identities, and genders. Each session is always filled with good conversation, personalized music stations, and a friendly comforting environment. Gabriel found a passion that drives him to care enough to know exactly what you want for your fitness goals and together y'all will make.it.f*cking.happen!!If the personal embarrassment of your body or lack of gym-experience is holding you back you are in great hands.Don't look back!! Book him now before everyone finds out. More...

Gabriel is an awesome, attentive, respectful person.  I use to get lower back pains when working and standing alot.  My doctor told me to strengthen my lower back.  I also had hernia surgery.   I informed Gabriel of these things.   The workouts he has me push me hard but don't cause stress on my hernia surgery.  I can honestly say when I work and am on my feet, I don't feel the lower back pain (stiffening up) I use to feel.  We pretty much have a set workout schedule but he is flexible when you need to change dates as well as reasonably priced.  His studio is private so you dint have to fight or wait in other gym patrons.

This review is long overdue.  I've been working out with Gabriel for over a year and a half now and he is a pro.  I started working out with him shortly after having two kids in two years.  Gabriel is extremely knowledgeable and extremely focused during training sessions.  He will mention the slightest tweaks to make while doing weight lifting that seem to make all the difference.  His motivational techniques are gentle, but extremely effective and he always knows the right amount to push me.  The sessions are one one one in a private space which is awesome because there are no distractions and I am really focused for the entire time we are working out.  I look forward to my sessions with Gabriel and always feel awesome after.

There's a reason Gabriel has all 5 star reviews, he's the very best. I've had other trainers before but none of them were as passionate as Gabriel about fitness and nutrition. I was working out and eating clean on my own without professional guidance for over a year and saw very minimal changes. Gabriel has helped me accomplish more than I ever thought was possible in only two months. In the first month I lost four pounds exactly as he predicted. By the end of the second month I went down two pant sizes and fit into my favorite pair of jeans I've never been able to wear comfortably. Not only has Gabriel's workout and diet advice been beneficial physically, it's also changed me mentally. I no longer obsess over my body image anymore. I track my progress photos on his app and I've learned to enjoy the process. I honestly don't feel depressed anymore and that's a great relief. My boyfriend and I have gained self confidence. I always catch him flexing, Its pretty funny coming from a guy who used to avoid mirrors. If your reading this and considering teaming up with Gabriel, do it. He's a great supporter and friend; he will change your life! More...

I came to Gabriel after being out of the gym for 4 months due to an injury, I lost a lot of mass during my injury and wanted to get my old body back. We spent sometime doing exercises that would work around my injury and get the muscles memory working again. We have since transitioned into power training and are 4 months in, I have already bounced back and my deadlifts/squats are already stronger then before the injury. He also helped me with my form. We made a plan leading up to EDC  in May and so far everything is going according to plan. It is also great to work with a trainer who not only knows what they're doing but practices what they preach. More...

So let's start off by mentioning how I was super hesitant to train with someone at a private studio because I tend to be super shy but my husband convinced me to try it for at least 4 wks. We've been training with him for over 3 months now. We chose his couples workout package and the minute I met Coach Gabriel he was so welcoming super understanding just an awesome positive individual. He's like a big brother helping you out. He's  educated in nutrition and fitness he's patient, honest, flexible and really helps you out to achieve your weight goals. I've lost pounds BUT what is amazing is I've dropped hella inches all around. I also feel better about myself and stronger. There was so many times I would go in like omg what will he make me do today, will I be able to do it! He's there to encourage you and teach you proper posture and makes it fun!. I highly recommend him! My husband and I found a gem workout studio with him! Thanks coach for everything you do! More...

Gabriel is incredible. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to take their training to the next level or achieve some goals. What I like about Gabriel is that this IS his job not just some side gig that he does. He has the certificates to backup what is he is saying. Additionally, he listens to us and how we are feeling about the training sessions and adjusts things accordingly. And he makes himself available outside of our training sessions for questions and concerns.I am EXTREMELY pleased with my time with Gabriel. More...

I've been working with Gabriel at DeVine Physiques for a almost 4 months now. Short version: He's awesome. I'm the fittest and strongest I've ever been as the result of our collaboration. I *highly* recommend his services if you are ready and willing to take the actions he suggests.For more detail...Having worked for a fitness magazine, I had some definite criteria in mind when looking for someone to help me. Upon meeting Gabriel for our free consultation, we reviewed my history with diet, exercise and past injuries, as well as my current goals vs. efforts I'd tried on my own to reach them. He asked the right questions, but more importantly he let me talk about these topics in-depth and actively listened. He did not have a cookie-cutter approach ... he was looking for ways to optimize a plan to promote adherence and injury prevention relative to my goals with a conscious consideration as to my physical characteristics and limitations at that time.He advised me re: the importance of tracking calories and made suggestions as to apps that could be leveraged to aide in that often-tedious endeavor. He set me up with his customized trainer/client app and I connected MyFitnessPal to it to funnel data re: my daily nutritional and hydration tracking to him. We've started with two 50-minute workout sessions per week for now.Our goal has been to keep me below 2,000 calories per day... and his strong suggestion (not mandate, mind you... very important) to track everything has opened my eyes as to the caloric and nutritional content of everything I *was* eating (holy crap!) and have currently shifted to eating (oh thank God!).The physical results have been *much* more than I initially expected. Since mid-February I've gone from 225 pounds at 5'11" to 199 pounds, and now we're forging ahead to the next goal of 190 pounds before shifting to building/bulking. My cardio efficiency has increased greatly, as I no longer feel like I'm going to fall over going up and down flights of stairs. I recently shifted from XL to L shirts for the first time in a very long while. I've actually started to look forward to shopping for new clothes and don't dread going into fitting rooms and facing the mirror --- even the ones with horrible lighting. LOLFor me, the key to success has been a combination of really wanting to do this coupled with Gabriel's friendly, positive reinforcement. He always points out when I've broken through barriers, and has schooled me re: basic anatomy, form, flexibility, posture, etc. Gabriel's never mandated I do anything... instead, he's *encouraged* food tracking, hydration, caloric reduction, showing up for all our sessions, etc., as being the bedrock for achieving the goals that *I* walked in the door with. The responsibility lies with *me* to do the work. His encouraging advisement helps me keep moving forward progressively, efficiently and safely. There is no militaristic aggressive "go go go!!!" kind of atmosphere, but rather a "when you're ready... you've got this... you can and will because you are" approach to gently psyching me up when I might be feeling a bit of a dip in my gas tank. I'm doing things at 43 years of age that I'd always been scared to do. I'm exponentially stronger at 43 than I was at 23.If this has been my experience around the 4-month mark of working with Gabriel, I'm very much looking forward to the 6-month mark! This has definitely been one of the most important and positive investments I've made in myself, and definitely the most physical-fitness progress I've made since my mid-20s. The body usually changes quickly in your 20s, and I was afraid that I'd have a slow tedious climb in my 40s... but Gabriel's coaching (and my diligence; very important factor) have made that climb much faster and fulfilling than I thought would be possible.I look better. I feel better. I eat better. I move better. I *am* better. Other people have noticed ... and *I* have noticed -- not just on the surface, but inside as well -- and I want to keep moving forward to see what working with Gabriel holds in store. More...

I have been training with Gabriel for about six months. In that time he has helped me increase my confidence in my strength and helped reduce my back pain. He pays close attention to my form, listens to what I have to say, and notices when adjustments need to be made to weights or exercises. Look no further, this is the guy you want to hire. More...

Just gotta say, I've been working out at DeVine Physiques for a little over 2 years now, and in the best shape I've been in years (btw, I'm 61)!  Gabriel is knowledgeable, attentive, and mixes up each session so they are never the same or predictable.  I feel like my body is strong and balanced. He is also great at modifying any exercise when necessary, yet keeping it equally challenging.  I highly recommend DeVine Physiques.  Money very well spent for my health and longevity : ) More...

I've been training with Gabriel now for 18 months. When I began working with him I had constant pain and numbness in my right arm and shoulder, and was unable to move my right hand and arm behind my back. I had been training with weights for years, but knew I was missing key understanding of technique and form.

Within 6 months of my start Gabriel's corrective work on my arm and shoulder the pain and numbness had vanished. In addition I began to develop real muscle strength, as well as fundamental skill at lifting correctly, effectively and safely.

If it was only his skill and expertise it would be enough to recommend him, but he's also a damn nice guy. He's a good listener (something incredibly rare in a weight/fitness trainer), and he's clearly PAYING ATTENTION when we're working together. The combination makes him a pretty incredible trainer.

I've seen enormous progress working with the man, and I can't recommend him enough.

Gabriel is fantastic! My husband and I signed up for couples training about a month ago and we love it! Gabriel designs workouts that meet both of our needs and keeps us engaged for the entire session! He also keeps a close watch to ensure that we are doing exercises correctly. Last, he is friendly and knowledgeable about all things fitness and nutrition! We often leave our sessions with healthy recipe ideas and tips!

The DeVine facility is clean and there is decent parking too!

I highly recommend!

Gabriel is a great trainer and listens to your goals and makes an effective plan in order to meet them.

His prices are also affordable and it's 1 on 1. More...

I have only worked with Gabriel a few weeks, but I am glad I found him! His rates are competitive and his one-on-one attention keeps me focused on what I need to accomplish during my training hour. I feel he is there for me and to help me reach my fitness goals.  Gabriel is also a very nice person. He encourages rather than being overly critical. Highly recommend!! The training room is conveniently located on Ventura Blvd in East Sherman Oaks. More...

As you can tell by all the reviews on this page, DeVine Physiques can't be beat. Gabriel is absolutely fantastic - as a trainer, teacher, and mentor.I first started working with Gabriel as preparation for my first Spartan Race. Gabriel helped me develop goals (feeling strong and more capable) and a work out plan (even when I am at the gym by myself throughout the week). I have been working with Gabriel since October of 2016, and have been most impressed by:- His ability to fully explain WHY certain movements in a workout plan are better than others, and why he groups specific moves together- His positive-reinforcing training style; I never feel weak or dumb or incapable. He fully celebrates what a client is able to do, but also knows when to motivate someone to push beyond what they thought they were capable of- His overall positive attitude! Gabriel is a joy to talk to - about anything and everything - and his friendly nature makes a tough workout a bit more manageable!- His thoughts around developing a completely unique workout set per client. You will never feel like he's mass-producing workouts - on the contrary, you know why and how he put real thought into what you want to achieve, and what you need to get thereI used to hate working out - like, would think of ANY and ALL excuses not to be active, especially at the gym by myself. That thankfully has now changed: Gabriel has helped me get motivated when I see improvements, and when I realize I am a heck of a lot stronger this week than I was the previous week. I mean - I can finally do chin-ups now!!! That's insane!!! :)If you're looking for a personal trainer who is effective, motivating, honest, professional and authentic - Gabriel & Devine Physiques is where it's at. More...

This guy has done for me than any other trainer I've had (4 other trainers over 20 years.) I am consistently blown away at his level of expertise, his patience and his deep understanding of fitness and correct form. He is easily the most PRESENT trainer I've ever had - not on his phone, not chatting other people up at the gym (we work at his studio) and I don't have any question he's in the room for the workout I'm paying him for! :) He's also one hell of a nice guy.

I sought out the services of a personal trainer a little over a month ago and came across DeVine Physiques through some brief searching online. I finally decided it was time to invest into my health, and I wanted to make sure whoever I decided to employ was someone I could trust to guide me into much better health. Believe me, I'm quite a bit of work for a trainer, so he/she has to really convince me they know what they're doing. The reviews seemed promising -- promising enough to make me reach out. I was offered a free consultation right off the bat, which I gladly accepted. The day of the consultation, I walked into a private office/gym space to meet with quite a professional, jovial guy named Gabriel. I found the consultation to be very effective in informing me what DeVine Physiques is all about and what to expect should I choose to engage further. Needing some time to think about it, I thanked Gabriel and went home that night to mull it over. It did not take me very long to realize Gabriel is a very capable personal trainer who is more than happy to be flexible with his clients' needs and schedule, and you get the bonus of a nutritionist should you choose to take advantage of his knowledge in this field as well (recommended). I came in with the goal of wanting to lose a lot of weight and work towards a body I will finally be proud of, and Gabriel assured me he has the knowledge and abilities to help me get there if I am willing to embark on the long journey.With that said, I of course decided to go with DeVine Physiques and have been getting trained by Gabriel for just over a month as of this writing. Though it has not been a lot of time at this point, I am already very pleased with this decision. Gabriel has been a pleasure to work with, and the results I have already gotten are very promising. I've lost just under 10 pounds in the past month simply by following the diet and - of course - coming to the training sessions Gabriel has specifically set up for me. Though I have quite a bit of work ahead of me to lose this weight, I am feeling much more confident about that ever-intensifying light at the end of the tunnel because of DeVine Physiques. Now, I look forward to continuing on this journey to better health through the guidance of DeVine Physiques. To weight loss! More...

I have been working with Gabriel since January 2016 and I have seen tremendous results! Not only have I lost twelve pounds, but I am I physically stronger, leaner, more toned, and have a completely renewed outlook on and approach to my physical health and fitness. I suffered from an eating disorder for several years and Gabriel was instrumental in guiding me towards new approaches to eating and nutrition. The program he developed for me targeted my specific goals and is a regimen I can really see myself sticking to, even after our time together comes to a close when I move away in June. I referred my mother, who is a diabetic with very specific nutritional and exercise needs, to Gabriel a few months ago and he has completely transformed her life and given her new hope in her illness. Gabriel listens to your specific needs, remains present, cheers you on both in and out of the studio. He understands the diversity of the human body and takes an evidence-based approach to his training style, ensuring that your program is specifically tailored to the strengths and limitations of your individual body. I cannot recommend Gabriel enough for any level of fitness experience, whether you are a seasoned power lifter looking for a trainer to support you in reaching your goals, or a complete newcomer to the world of fitness...he is truly a gem who will challenge you to grow and transform your body in ways you never thought possible!

My cousin initially started training with him, and I saw her body transform with six pack abs. I was jealous. Then my mom started to train with him, and she lost approximately 5lbs. So of course I had to try it out!! I have been training with Gabriel since the end of July 2014 for my upcoming wedding October 26th, 2014 and I have amazing results!! I was 125lbs and now 114.8lbs. I feel leaner, healthier, and more positive about my body. This is not “Garcinia Cambogia” or some miracle weight-loss protein shake. Gabriel is honest and will not sell you any products. His training style is doing the work. This means exercising and minding what food you put in your mouth. Gabriel is great about checking-in with you, how your progress is going, and what’s great is his positivity. If you overate and went over your calories, Gabriel doesn’t shame you, he tells you to get back on track, and wants the client to be conscious of what they want. If I wanted to lose weight, then I had to be conscious of my food and drinking choices. I appreciate his level of knowledge in exercise. He truly works hard to stay current in exercise sciences. I recommend Gabriel to all my family and friends for a healthy fitness and nutrition plan. More...

I was going it alone to train to run half marathons, and though I saw results on my own with an average half marathon time of 2hr 17min, I struggled with debilitating shin splints throughout my first two years of running due to over training. I consulted Gabriel DeVine of DeVine Physiques, and he was able to provide me with a mountain of advice regarding my recurring injury. I took his advice to heart, applied it religiously and saw immense improvement immediately. With my injuries eased, I was able to go from being a decent runner to completing half marathons in under two hours (a long term goal that had been consistently roadblocked due to the shin splints) and came in 2nd place at a 5k event with a time of just 23:38 - an improvement of over 5 minutes compared with before I consulted Gabriel just a few months before.Whether you are interested in losing weight, gaining muscle, or training for marathons, Gabriel DeVine is an excellent resource. He is highly knowledgeable and professional and takes great joy in his clients' success. If you're on the fence about which personal trainer to choose, definitely go with DeVine Physiques. You'll be so glad you did! More...

My name is Alissa and I will begin competing in August as a bikini class physique competitor. I also began power-lifting and am now in the advanced category for all of my lifts and well on my way to elite, once I get there I plan to compete in power-lifting as well. This has literally all been possible because of my training with DeVine Physiques. Not only have I leaned out, but I have gotten stronger. I now have the body I always dreamed of. DeVine Physiques makes sure to not only give you the proper workout but the proper nutrition, they give you all of the tools you need to actually and safely shed that excess fat.My journey to become a physique competitor has been long and hard. I am naturally an endomorph and I come from a family where everyone is heavy. Although I never got that large I have struggled with excess weight for most of my life. In the last 4 months with Gabriel's plan I have completely transformed my body and will step on stage in August knowing I am stronger and look better than I ever have. I love working out and pushing my boundaries, I know that anything is possible now with enough hard work and dedication. Each workout is a chance to prove to myself that I am worth it! More...

I have been training with Gabe since May and (thanks to Gabe) I am now hooked on logging in all the food I eat daily and working out. I am consistently losing weight every week and Gabe is great at keeping me in line and encouraging me to stay on track. He has designed a personal work out plan (cardio and weights) and monitors my progress, slowly changing my weight training to pinpoint my "problem areas". I love the results I'm seeing!!! I went shopping last week and was down at least a full size! I couldn't believe it. People are telling me how good I look and my clothes are all getting loose. Wow! More...

Gabriel has been a great asset as I've been getting back into shape. He's worked with me to get workouts that take my old injuries into account as well as easing me back into an active lifestyle, always making sure I take all the steps to help avoid injury.Gabriel has also been great in helping me clean-up my diet, and his food plans are easy to follow and have really helped me in my progress. It's been great learning new exercises and paying a lot more attention to how the movements and sequence of exercises work together. His studio is the very definition of being a private client, where you work out one-on-one with him which I find both comfortable and intense. You can go all out, with the music jacked up and no one can see you sweat! He's a great trainer and I have really enjoyed working out with him and will continue until I reach my goals. More...

I started training with Gabriel 3 weeks ago. Not only is he kind and extremely articulate, he's a wonderful motivator. I'm never afraid to ask questions and am comfortable being completely honest with him. I'm already addicted to logging my nutrition and exercise! I've already lost 5.6 pounds(that's 1.6 pounds more than my goal per week!) and the workouts are varied with weights and cardio, so I don't get bored with them. I even bought a dress that was a size smaller than usual for a shoot and it turned out to be too big! I'm so excited to continue watch the weight come off! Gabriel is fantastic, if you've struggled with your weight or want to get stronger, then he's the guy to go to! :) More...

I had been struggling to lean out for years. I started working out at the age of 15 with the intent of one day doing physique competitions. I tried everything, at one point in college I was on the cross country team, vegan, and had a personal trainer and  I still couldn't drop the extra fat. After 11 years of yo yo diets, extreme workouts, and a very unhealthy relationship with food I started working with Gabriel. Within 4 months of working with him I lost all of the extra fat and am finally learning how to have a healthy relationship with food. He teaches how to have a healthy maintainable lifestyle while getting the body you want. In Aug I stepped on stage for my first physique competition, and that is all due to the training, nutritional advice, and support I got from Gabriel. If you are really looking to get your diet and exercise in order you should call DeVine Physiques. More...

Almost to my first ten pounds, I was hoping to make it today, but oh well. The big thing is how my clothes are fitting! Woot! I never thought I would like on line training but it is the best! And Gabe is great! He encourages me to keep it up when I get discouraged (this is hard work ), he changes my weights if something is not agreeing with me (I have a bad shoulder) and WATCHES my nutrition with helpful suggestions! I want to lose my weight yesterday (I have 40 pounds to go) but Gabe is helping me to realize not only that it took years to pack on the pounds but losing at a reasonable pace is better for me AND I have a better chance of keeping it off. I can't wait to start on my next ten!!!!! More...

Q&A

I'm much more than just a personal trainer. I'm also a corrective exercise specialist, certified nutritionist, and I take a genuine interest in all my clients. I keep in touch between sessions, and do everything I can to help all of my clients reach their goals.

I was inspired to start my own business after interviewing at a commercial gym. This big box gym was only really interested in sales, and I wanted to be in the business of helping people achieve their goals.

While I may be new to Bark.com, I'm not new to training. With 5 years in business as an independent trainer with my own facility, I have helped countless people achieve their goals through a simple, no nonsense, evidence based approach-- I've helped people lose a collective
