Excellent gym with very nice people. The gym is always clean, and the equipment in good repair. And, there's almost always parking!

I have had numerous personal trainers in my life all over the world but never have I been so motivated as I was training at Jungle Fitness. I was in the area for 3 months and with the help of the awesome coach Marvin I managed to get in the best shape I have for many years. Coach Jon and his team at Jungle Fitness find out who you are from day one, making sure you never get bored with your workout by constantly mixing up the routine. Each session I knew I could never be sure what to expect, as Marvin would change up exercises, reps and set amounts, meaning I was never bored and was always excited to train. The biggest difference with this fitness family (as that's what it feels like), is that they care about your goals and want to see you achieve them, without feeling intimidated. I highly recommend Coach Marvin as a trainer, or becoming part of the Jungle Fitness family in anyway.A friendly, motivating, and exciting gym where you WILL achieve goals. More...

Coaches are nice and train you properly with technique and you will see the results constantly. Marvin constantly pushes me and increase my abilities, Jon keeps on checking all the members and help them out.

If you're looking a better version of yourself, a transformation this is the place. This will create a new lifestyle for you. You are your habits.I needed a change to my fitness routine. I was not getting anywhere - just staying the same old me. No gains, no changes, mean I'm just going backwards. I found jungle fitness through yelp and noticed this place had a lot of great reviews. My gf and I decided to give them a try for 4 months and we were very happy with the results we decided to do another 4 months. Today we're about 6 months in! I've dropped from 23% body fat to 18% and have gotten a lot stronger. I never thought I would be doing pullups with a 45lbs plate belted onto my waist.Jon (the owner) is high energy and inspiring.. He definitely runs his business well and it translates out to his trainers and facility.Marvin our trainer - is amazing. Always prompt and has all types of workouts that I have never done. He's very aware of my capabilities that he knows how much I can lift (more than I know myself). He has a great structure to our workouts, very knowledgeable about fitness and will make sure minute and rep is quality. He always communicates to us via text and makes sure we stay on top of our meals. He's is also a great friend of ours outside of the gym. More...

If you want someone to motivate you and motivate you to do more than you thought you could Coach Marvin is definitely the one for you.  Also Coach Jon, the owner is a really knowledgeable and friendly guy.  A real people person and very customer focused. I wasn't able to stay and continue on board, but his honor and word are real and genuine.  Glad I met him. By the way, they will keep you on your toes and accountable by having daily weigh ins, food log, and everything to get you toward your goalsAlso it's a complete gym, with added niceties like ionized water!

I've been at this place since January and I can tell you it's worth the price! Marvin is my trainer right, and Steve occasionally kicks my ass on weekends or mornings when I can't make my normal evening schedule. I came to Jungle fitness skinny, fitish!? My main sport was running marathons but truth be told...I had gotten skinny fat. 5 pound weights were a struggle for me, and I was constantly getting sick from my weak immunize system.From day 1 Jon made me feel at home. I know he cares about every person at Jungle, and it's not just a job for him. I appreciate how much time he took to listen to my needs. He never, ever tried to sell me which is so different than most gyms. To this day he ALWAYS spends time chatting with the clients at Jungle and checking in on them. He is never too busy to say hello.The trainers at this gym go above and beyond to help you reach your goals. There are two instances that stand out in my mind.The first was when I was sick and had ordered meals. I had missed nearly two weeks of picking up the meals so Steve got in his car and dropped them off at my apartment. Him and Marvin checked in on me everyday. It was so kind of them.Marvin knows I have the biggest sweet tooth, and I love wine....who doesn't? Keeping my diet has been the hardest part of all of this, and I know at any point, anytime I can text and ask what I should order on a menu. He is the most encouraging, optimistic, knowledgeable trainer I've ever had. I even kept in touch with him while I was in other countries and he guided me through the menus there lol! Dedication! Thanks to him I've developed self controls and discipline...most of the time anyway!I joined this gym because I needed to make a huge change in my lifestyle and my health. There are many pricing options available, but more importantly it's like a family here. No doucebags, no judge mental people. We are all just trying to become better versions of ourselves and people are actually genuinely nice. I'm so thankful I made the decision to join this gym, and I don't foresee me ever leaving. I'm stronger in every way! Thank you to everyone at Jungle! More...

Jungle Fitness has done more for my health and appearance than anything else. I've tried dozens of gyms, home workouts, and other fitness activities (Tough Mudders, ultimate frisbee, etc. ). Jungle Fitness beats them all by a large margin.I joined Jungle Fitness when I was still recovering from a back injury that left me bed-ridden for months. I was in the worst physical condition of my life. But people started to notice improvements to my physical appearance just a couple months after I started working out at Jungle Fitness. Now, a little over two years later, I am in the best physical condition of my life. I have more muscle, less body fat, more energy, better posture, fewer aches/pains, and greater flexibility. For the first time in my life, I'm proud of my body.My trainer Zurie is incredible. Honestly, I couldn't imagine someone better. He pushes me just the right amount. He has a deep knowledge of kinesiology, anatomy, and nutrition. He's an exceptional teacher. He has a great sense of humor, and his enthusiasm is contagious.I met Jon (the owner) on my first day. He was thoughtful, attentive, and encouraging during our initial consultation. Ever since then, he always says "hi" and asks how I'm doing when I see him at the gym. He's a very warm person, and he created an amazing community at Jungle Fitness.Speaking of which, the culture at Jungle Fitness is probably one of its best features. The gym welcomes people of different ages, walks of life, and fitness levels. It isn't competitive or intimidating. It's friendly.The gym facilitates extreme efficiency. Zurie customizes each workout to maximize my personal gains. And the gym never feels crowded. I've never had to wait to use weights or machines. I get a lot out of every workout.I hate working out even though I know it's good for me. (That's probably why I've tried so many alternatives.) But I love Jungle Fitness. It changed my life, and it will change yours if you let it. More...

Jungle OC is awesome. Go here if you want a seriously butt kicking workout. I worked with Coach Z and his energy and positivity is amazing. I have had trainers at the Y, and private fitness places and he is by far the best I've ever had and probably will have. Even though I only worked out twice a week for a month I saw results and know if I was able to stay longer it would only get better. You can also tell all the trainers love what they're doing and Jon is very passionate about his gym and what he does. Go get a workout and support a one of a kind place More...

This place really is not only a gym! It is a motivational warehouse. From the moment you talk to the owner Jon, to the time you start your workouts the positive energy is awesome. My coach Qoni "Q" is the main reason that I have had incredible results in the short time that I have been going to Jungle Fitness. His knowledge and constant support has made the difference in me showing up, holding myself accountable and following his instructions. Q has taken the time to ask me questions about not only my goals with fitness but ask me how I am feeling before, during and after each workout. He is great at showing you the right technique and posture for each exercise. Cheers Coach Q and thanks again for all the support! More...

Steve is such a great coach here at jungle fitness. I was not 100% sure that I would be getting the result I want, but I'm glad now for choosing jungle fitness and Steve as my coach.

Let's just say, this gym, the staff and the clients are like family to me now. The positive vibes, the out pour of support and love is beyond words. I look forward to coming to see my trainer Steven for my physical and mental health. Owner, Jon and wife Thuy are genuine and thoughtful beyond words. Everyone at the gym is here for lifelong goals. In today's hustle and bustle of life. We all need to sweat out the daily grind for our own self care. As a result of working out, learning to eat healthier and having a team at Jungle Fitness to support me. I'm so much happier with my physique and confidence. Stop gym shopping because this is the gym for you. Call Jon now and you will see for yourself. But remember, consistency is key. Don't give up! Come and work out with me! More...

Everyone here is incredibly friendly and motivating. And Heaven was the best! I worked out with her 2-3x week  for 4 months before my wedding and got great results! She pushed me to lift heavier, go the extra rep, and gave advice on diet and what to do on off days. The workouts were always different so I was never bored and by the end of it I looked forward to running sprints with sand bags and taking a sledgehammer to a tire haha. I left each workout exhausted and sore and accomplished. I've never felt stronger. My legs and arms and obliques never looked so good....and with barely any cardio! If I hadn't moved out of state I would still go there. Worth it! Thank you for making me feel so confident! More...

If you are merely thinking of stopping by, I highly recommend you make the investment. We stopped by for a consultation and were immediately greeted by Jon and his infectious high energy. We had a tour of the gorgeous facilities and even got to meet a few of the trainers. Jon was super friendly and didn't let his expertise get ahead of the fact that the average person isn't as educated in his field of expertise. Jon was very respectful and courteous while taking all the measurements and then got down to defining our goals. All whilst keeping an eye on every client working out around us(all of whom he greeted by name). The location is great and every person we spoke to was clearly very proud to be a part of Jungle Fitness.Well Done Jon. You must be extremely proud of what you have built. More...

I've been working out on my own since high school but never saw any real results. No matter how many fitness articles I read online or different workout plans I tried, I never saw the results I wanted. After years of not progressing at the rate I wanted, I knew it was time I sought help from a trainer. When I called Jungle Fitness, I was surprised that the owner, Jon, was the person who I was talking to! Most places would have a receptionist handle new client questions, but Jon takes it upon himself to speak with every client and answer all their questions. I'm very happy with the amazing training that I have received at Jungle Fitness. Jon and his awesome team of trainers have been an amazing source of knowledge and motivation for me on my fitness journey. The results will speak for themselves. Thank you Jon for everything!

My experience with Jungle Fitness has been incredibly positive and rewarding. I wasn’t necessarily sure what to expect on the first day with my one-on-one meeting with Jon, as it was new to me to discuss my goals and background with the actual gym owner before. The amount of personalization right off the get-go was refreshing. It’s important to note that I both came in with back/shoulder injuries from other fitness regimes and from a severe freeway accident 6 months ago. A few years back I had a few memberships with CrossFit and CrossFit-esque gyms, which often lead to injury because of lack of individual attention and the extremely competitive atmosphere. This also lead me to cancel my memberships to those programs and unable to train for long periods of time, thus losing any progress. Unlike those other gyms, Jungle Fitness has a great fitness program that also facilitates proper form, accountability for lifestyle changes, and a “competing against yourself” vibe. At other gyms I would be anxious before walking into the doors, but this place has really surprised me with their consistently welcoming attitudes. In terms of attitudes, Coach Qoni is not only one of the most personable coaches I’ve ever worked with before joining, but he is also one of the most knowledgeable coaches I’ve trained with. Coach Qoni’s has a lot of insight into injury prevention and has never made me feel inferior when we had to modify a movement because of my back injuries. I am so appreciative that Jon had matched me with a trainer that really understood the limitations I have, and challenges me in ways that allow me to continue to train healthfully. On top of this program, I am doing a lot of outside treatments for my pain relief. Without telling him, my chiropractor has noticed my body composition changing since I’ve begun training. I also recently added physical therapy, and my first PT visit was deemed as “the best first day a patient has EVER had” by a physical therapist because my form was so good - and I can’t ignore the fact that Coach Qoni is integral to that comment. Though I have gained muscle and lost fat on this program, what is most important is that those closest to me say that I actually don’t look like I’m in an intense amount of pain anymore, and this is only after a short period of time. I still have my chronic pain, but it has gotten so much better under the guidance of Jungle Fitness. Just go here and see what I mean! More...

All these years gym only meant cardio for me, I was intimated of stepping into a gym and doing any kind of weight training before my one-on-one meeting with Jon. I train with Coach Chandler and she’s amazing!!! I’ve only been training with her for about a month(3x a week) and my body fat is already down by 6%, (Warning: don’t go on her pretty face) her workouts sessions are INTENSE?, my full body was sore after the first two sessions and she’s very knowledgeable+encouraging, knows when to push you off limits and when to balance it, sometimes she makes me feel “WTF did i get myself into?!” Lol. Her workouts are different every time, so i never feel bored. She also sets you up with a very sound nutritional plan, and I text her asking her suggestion anytime I’m confused when eating out. She’s flexible on canceling or rescheduling my classes. Overall, great first month, can’t wait to reach my health&fitness goals with Chandler More...

I am so happy I joined the Jungle Fitness @junglefitnessoc fambam. I love the positive vibes and energy that everyone brings to the gym. What drew me to the Jungle Fitness family was when my aunt had joined a few months ago. In accompanying her to sign up we met with the owner Jon Jung. The passion and excitement Jon @hustlegrind247 had in explaining what they provide and offer was what enrolled me and I couldn't pass up. Not only did my aunt join but my cousin had been going for about a year already with Dale @doritodale as his trainer. Seeing his discipline, dedication and transformation physically and mentally are also what inspired me to join and have Dale as my coach as well. After my sessions with Dale I come out feeling like a million bucks. The soreness kicks in but I love the pain. Dale pushes you to a level that you think you couldn't normally achieve and also pushes you to attain new goals. He really pays attention to your strengths and weaknesses to make your weaknesses your strengths as well. My goal is to not only lower my body fat but also feel healthy mentally and physically. It's a level of high that you achieve naturally and it's amazing!! Thank you Jungle Fit Family! More...

J
27 May 2018

Dale was my trainer, and he is amazing he can get you the results you are looking for. Over my 6-month training here my face became more cut, people started telling me I look more masculine, and I fit into my old jeans (lost an inch in the hips but still retained muscle). I wish I could have trained longer, but I'm moving for work now. Be ready to SWEAT and get results. More...

Jungle Fitness is the best place to get fit if you're willing to put in the time and the effort. In just six months Coach Q has helped me drop 30lbs and and almost 15% body fat, I couldn't be happier. I feel and look like a whole person. Thanks to everyone with the Jungle Family, you guys are awesome. More...

What can I say about Jungle Fitness that hasn't already been said?First of all Jon Jung is the consummate businessman. He runs the gym, but doesn't micro-manage his trainers. However, if there's a problem; he wants to know right away and nip it in the bud. Jon is really fair, always super positive, and one of the hardest workers that I've ever encountered. Very few people outwork this guy.After a stressful day at work, all I want to do is come in and get a super workout in. Most of the folks that go to Jungle Fitness are very friendly as well as the staff.I've been working with Bryan Schutte for the past several months and have found him a pleasure to work with. I'm seeing some results; both physically and mentally. Bryan comes to work with a smile on his face, a skull cap on his head, and a positive outlook on life. He will push you hard, but knows when to stop (meaning he doesn't push you over the edge). He wants you to live for another workout.If you live in Orange County and you're looking to make a change in your physical and mental well being, Jungle Fitness would definitely be a place that I'd recommend looking into.

I have been working out at Jungle Fitness since November and love it! They have a great, open layout and unlimited alkaline water. They also offer a meal prep service, so you can order and just pick it up with no hassles! I have been able to train with almost of all their trainers. They're all super qualified and really nice.. but, they also kick my butt! I feel so much stronger and healthier as the weeks keep coming!!!

Just some observations that I have regarding the staff/trainers:

Heaven - She is sooo sweet! Don't let her fool you, though. There has yet to be a day where she doesn't make me cry for mercy. I found that she focuses a lot on muscle building and has touches of cardio here and there - which is perfect for my personal fitness goals.

Qoni - While Heaven (my primary trainer) was away, I got to work out with Q. He is also very nice, but will push you to your limits. He emphasizes correct form because he likes to target specific muscles! Which is awesome because you learn a lot about which muscles you are using and how it should feel when you are working them out.

Zurie - I was also able to work out with Zurie during a makeup session. Let me tell you about this guy.. he is intense! But, everything he makes you do is achievable. It feels weird after your workout to think that you were actually able to complete it all! I found that Zurie incorporates more cardio that either Heaven and Qoni, which is perfect for people trying to slim down a little.

Overall, really great experience. I have never walked into the gym and felt out-of-place. Everyone is incredibly helpful and receptive. Jon, the owner, built a great team!

If you are trying to change your mind, body & spirit, look no further than to Jungle Fitness. Jungle fitness provides a friendly workout environment unlike other gyms which are filled with egomaniacs. It's a decent sized gym and has enough equipment for all your needs. At my time here I've noticed great results which I couldn't have gotten on my own. The workouts are fun and challenging. Definitely one of the best personal trainer gyms I've crossed upon. They can be pretty flexible with scheduling workouts. John is the owner so you'll be speaking with him. He might look intimidating from the photos but he's a chill guy. Very positive like Tony Robbins lol. I'm sure everyone knows the saying, "you get what you pay for" This is undeniably true! Also, they give a custom meal plan tailored to you. You won't ever regret setting your foot here. If you go to LA or 24, you'll never want to go back. If you're pregnant, and looking to get back into shape, come here! More...

6 December 2017

During December of 2016 I was simply looking for a place to lift weights as a supplement to my running program. While I wasn't looking for personal training, I decided to give it a try.

I contacted Jon and did the initial assessment.

I signed up for 6 months of 2x week group sessions and was assigned to trainer Sam. (total cost $2400) Sam was an interesting mix of professional trainer, fun friend, and sadist. With how much I was paying, I had high expectations and Sam delivered. Sometimes, if Sam was out on UTO or vacation, I got to work with Zuri or Jon. In those cases the same high standard was delivered.

The first 3 weeks were pure hell. I did not realize that this was going to mostly be HIIT (high intensity interval training). I honestly just wanted to strength train. What I learned was that all my years of making fun of HIIT and crossfit, I had missed a valuable training lesson.

Example workout (I kept a log for myself):
warmup run/walk/run 1.7 miles from Apt to Jungle

Phase1 - 5 repeats
Sled Push (2x25lb plates) 50?yrds
Sled Pull (2x45lb plates) 50?yrds
100 Jump Rope
20lb Sandbag chest carry 100?yds

Phase 2 - 4 repeats
Partner Band Twist x15
Partner Band Hold x 15

Phase 3 - 3 repeats
Medicine ball (14lb) overhead to toe touch x20
Medicine ball (14lb) overhead w/ flutter kick x50

I stuck with the program and eventually my body started to adapt. Of course, Sam, then changed the program. It got better...but not easier.

Results - Starting weight 267#, end weight 247#

I did not renew my contract for budget reasons. Since that time, I've lost another 8 lbs and recently achieved a new PR on the Half Marathon Distance.

If I ever need some dedicated training in the future I will probably use this group again. I'd recommend 1 or 3 months however, as the 6 month contact was just too much both financially and physically.

Jungle fitness has been an awesome experience for me. From day 1 meeting Jon, he was very friendly and did not try to pressure me at all to join. He set me up with Zurie who is soo down to earth and awesome!! He is the best trainer ever! I️ felt insecure going into my regular gym, 24 hour fitness, because of fear that I️ had bad form, but that wasn’t the case here. I️ felt so comfortable and supported by my trainer here. The whole work out goes by quickly. He tailors my work outs to my goals, and has different workouts every time I’m in. After the first month, I’d already lost 2% body fat which was very impressive for me. My goals were to gain muscle and lose fat, which is exactly what I️ accomplished. Additionally I feel so much stronger, and feel more energetic. It has been such a fantastic experience, and I️ highly recommend it!! More...

I am truly impressed with Jungle Fitness. The gym itself has everything you need: cardio machines, all different types of weight lifting machines, free weights, ropes, tires, medicine balls, etc. You name it, they have it.

Before starting here, I had never been to a professional gym, and I'm not going to lie, I was intimidated... HOWEVER, meeting with the owner Jon was like seeing an old friend, he was friendly and outgoing and made me feel extremely welcome from Day 1. The gym atmosphere is very motivating: everyone is there to put in work, they play great music, and their cardio TV's play bodybuilding videos.

Jon paired me up with the amazing trainer Qoni. Qoni helped me exponentially. He took me from a guy who didn't know anything about fitness or what I was doing to learning the fundamentals of bodybuilding in no time. He also set me up with a meal plan that I could work with and gave me continuing support to keep me accountable. I saw serious results after just a few months of working out with coach Q. Best of all, he gave me the skills and confidence I needed to keep up with my training.

No matter what your fitness goals are, I would recommend Jungle Fitness to anyone. You'll love it!

I found Jungle Fitness while searching for a local personal training experience that would push me past the fitness progress I'd been able to attain on my own. I knew the basics but I wanted more, and Jon brings that to the table and so much more! From the moment we met, his warm, energetic personality and passion for fitness and bodybuilding told me all I needed to know. I was making gains in just the first month and I never looked back.I didn't know going in that I'd be agreeing to compete in physique competitions under his guidance, but I found out quickly it was exactly what I needed to push myself to the next level. I just competed in my first physique show at age 36 and look better than ever! I couldn't be happier with the experience, knowledge and progress Jon has shared with me in the past year.Not quite your speed? That's ok! He has an entire team of trainers that will work with you (one on one and in group settings) to meet your own goals at any age or level of fitness. More...

My review from 12/12/12:First of all, I'd like to thank Jon for assigning my trainer, Q, who is good at kicking my butt yet makes me laugh. Secondly, all the trainers here will kick your butt guaranteed, but you need to keep up with your diet plan. Thirdly, I've learned so many new workout moves that I've never seen before. You can really take the training you learn here and do them at home if you move away. Definitely worth the money and way more affordable than other gyms' trainers. Do the 6 month plan and see a huge difference in the first 2 months, like I did. The last 4 months will really get you closer to your goals. Trust me. Although I've lost 30lbs on my own Aug. 2011- Feb. 2012 by just going to the gym after work every day, I plateaued. I got stuck and couldn't get to my goal weight which was 20 more lbs to lose and tone up.I saw Jon on craigslist and knew that someone with that body totally knows what he's doing, so I contacted Jon for help. Since I joined, my body has gotten more toned than ever and I've lost about 10 lbs! Two and a half months left & I could become a bikini model! Lol. But seriously, all you ladies (single or married), this is a safe and fun place to workout. If you're shy and self conscious, it's ok. They can be gentle and very encouraging. If you need a tough trainer, they can be tough and push you to your goals faster. I've met many women here who have been coming for a long time and they look good! It might even get your husband to want to join because they'll want a hot body too! Couples who workout together are the cutest, anyway, and will definitely enjoy the results. ;) BTW, they love kids and puppies, if you must bring them by. Lol.Today:Since I stopped training (I moved back to LA), I have gained weight again especially after having a baby! I can't seem to lose the weight on my own...so...back to these Jungle Fitness trainers I go! :) More...

I remember going to Jungle Fitness when it was still in a smaller facility a couple years back! The new gym has the perfect amount of space-- gym wise and office wise! I feel so welcome by all the trainers and people who come and workout as well! And the best part is, they always give it their all when they train you. I never want to ask for another personal trainer at any other gym ever again because the level of motivation and dedication these people have is beautiful. Definitely recommend this gym to anyone who wants to see fast results and feel confident once more! More...

Amazing place to workout with great trainers. They're always up beat and make working out a joy. I started there in February 2016 @ 230lbs and in four months I have lost over 40lbs and am currently at 186lbs.

If you want that body you've always dreamed of reach out to Jon and his trainers, and take a look at the wall in his gym showing all the transformations he's helped people with.

If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't hesitate and would do it all over again. I can't speak highly enough of this place. I can call it home and Jon and everyone at Jungle Fitness my "family".

When I initially came to check out this place I had no intention to commit the same day. After meeting with Jon and his wife for my consultation, I knew immediately that I had to sign up and get started asap. They were both very encouraging and reassuring that I was making the right decision towards my fitness goal. My trainer, Zurie is the probably the BEST trainer there! He is very motivating and actually has taught me how to enjoy working out. Zurie is very dedicated to his clients and I love his flexibility with my schedule. I started at about 115 lbs and now at 105 lbs. My results so far are amazing! I love how toned I have become and finally a 4 pack of abs!!!! 10 lbs doesn't sound like much but after looking at my before and after pictures you can see the difference.Jungle Fitness is definitely an investment but it is honestly all worth it in the end. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to really change their lifestyle to get fit and healthy! More...

I've been seeing Bryan for about 5 weeks now, and I felt inclined to write a review on my progress thus far! I was able to lose quite a bit of weight on my own, prior to joining Jungle Fitness. .. But, eventually, I plateaued with my weight loss, so I began looking for a trainer to help me shed those last few pounds, as well as build some muscle mass. I found Jungle Fitness through Yelp, and met with Jon for a consultation. Once I was financially ready to commit, I let Jon know, and he matched me up with Bryan, as my trainer.Bryan has been great! One of the things I love best about his workouts, is that he changes it up, just about every time. He thinks of non-traditional ways to work muscle groups... In an enjoyable manner! I mean, who doesn't like slamming a sledge hammer down on a tire?! He gets a little bit of everything into each workout... Cardio, core, weight training, etc... While, every bit of the way, encouraging me and never letting me quit. He's also been very flexible with scheduling our workouts, which is super helpful. It's only been 5 weeks thus far, but I've already lost almost 5 pounds (which is actually a lot for someone of my size)!! Of course, a lot of it has to do with eating right, and staying active on your days off... But thanks to Bryan and our workouts, I can feel my energy and stamina levels increasing, I'm getting stronger every day, and just feeling great!I've seen and met a few other trainers at Jungle Fitness... And they all seem super awesome... But I definintely feel like I lucked out with Bryan! More...

I made a decision a few months ago to compete in my first physique competition at the tender age of 52. I met Jon Jung at Jungle Fitness and hired him as my coach to get me ready so I don't embarrass myself on stage for the first time. Not only did he help get me in the best shape of my life......I ended up winning the show. This would not have happened had it not been for his constant encouragement and attention. His level of professionalism is second to none. I highly recommend Jon to any an all looking to get fit...........he is the best of the best! More...

An absolutely great experience. Great trainers, great knowledge, and great motivation. Prior to training at Jungle Fitness, I have always struggled with gaining weight to bulk. I tried everything; harder workouts, eating fattier foods, and spending ridiculous amounts of time in the gym. All with no results. I decided to give Jungle Fitness a try, and within a week of training with Coach Jon Jung, I went from 140lbs to 149lbs. I've never been able to gain weight that fast in one week. I realized to myself that I have been training all wrong. From my very first workout, I felt a burn as if I have never stepped foot into a gym because it was that difficult. I wanted to give up because it was so hard, but, Coach Jon didn't let me. He pushed me to my limits and motivated me all the way through. He gave me a diet plan designed to help me put on muscle mass, and sure enough, I gained 9 pounds within a week. I could not be more thankful for all of the mental and physical motivation that these trainers provide at Jungle Fitness. I can't wait to progress with the help of all the coaches here at Jungle Fitness! More...

My experience with Jungle Fitness included many firsts. I've never worked out, or really been to a gym. I didn't know how to do anything really. I couldn't lift anything. I was depressed, huge and unhealthy. I woke up one day and just decided to take the leap. Jon, the owner, was always positive, friendly and energy filled so it made the sign up process easy. I trained with Qoni. My first week, I was bench pressing only the naked bar -- sad. Within a year, I could max out at 225lbs. That was one of my goals when I signed up. Another goal was to also flip this gigantic 300lbs tire they had. I accomplished that as well. After about 18 months, I didn't end up with 6pack abs but that was only because I can't help myself when it comes to food. I did loose a LOT of weight and my physic was completely transformed. I'm stronger and more confident than ever before. This lead to exploration into other physical activities including mud runs and hitting the ski slopes again after a 15 year hiatus. I could say my experience with Jungle Fitness has changed my life for the better. And, as a plus, Qoni gives great life advice so you get a free therapist - haha. More...

Just to let everybody know, this is not your ordinary gym. This is no LA fitness or 24 hour, or those other gyms who have personal trainers that don't know anything. Jon knows his stuff. And I got a pleasure to workout with him. He not just say and babble on things but I actually see him do it with me. So, it's a legit place to be in. It may not be as fancy as those gyms out there, but this is where you go if you are serious with training like a beast, and getting the results you want.Just go. Enough said. You have to experience it on your own. More...

I was introduced to Jon by a semi pro that he trained. I'm in my 40's and wanted to get back into shape. Jon took the time to address my needs and gave me a program specific to my goals and patiently worked with me though out my progress. At the end of 3 months working with Jon's guidance I was able to lose 25 lbs and gain back the muscularity I lost in my youth. I'd highly recommend Jon and Jungle Fitness to anyone seeking to improve ones health and fitness. Not only does he have a proven track record of success but he's actually pretty damn cool to work with! More...

To start off, I have hypothyroid that became a goiter with multi-nodules. Any body with hypothyroidism knows losing weight is a really challenging battle with this condition. My thyroid levels were also raising and I gained a lot weight within months and hated my body My doctor told me that if my goiter grew bigger I might need surgery or radiation to remove or shrink it. I don't want to go through any of that. I found out that to prevent the goiter from growing, working out to boost my metabolism can help prevent it from growing. So I found Jungle fitness. I decided to choose Jungle fitness becuase it had a lot of positive reviews online. It's not a huge place like 24 hr, but it has everything u would need and when u workout with the trainer they really work u out hard. :) I really enjoyed this gym. I signed up with a 6 month contract and trained with the trainer 3x a week. Compare to how I was 6 months ago, I feel stronger. I remember day one I was hyperventilating, felt like I was dying, and oh yes I do remember vomiting after words. But now I feel awesome working out . The first couple of days working out I felt like a failure because I felt I couldn't do most of the workouts, but the trainers are really positive and they keep u motivated. Jesse (one of the trainers) would tell me something like 'its hard now but it will get easier. U're here now and not sitting on the couch'. So anyone with hypothyroidism, don't give up! Working out is hard and we have to work harder to meet our goals. But we can do it!Jesse is an awesome trainer. He gives encouragement at the right time. Like when I think I'm gonna drop on the floor and die from a working out, he does his clapping hand thing or rooting me on and for some reason I feel I could push pass the pain and feel re-energize. He really knows how to mix things up and not make every work out the same thing over and over. Every day is a new work out. I feel bad for him because I'm not really a morning person so he kind of got my morning grumpy-ness. :)As for results 6 months later, I'm happy with the results for a hypothyroid slow metabolism person. I know I loss some weight and gained muscle. To me that's awesome because losing weight is hard for my slow metabolism. I didn't think I'll lose any. My diet is good from knowing whats healthy to eat, but I know my drinking hasn't helped out at all and that's all on me my fault. :). So I know I need to be more discipline when it comes to drinking. My recent visit to the doctors for an ultrasound of my goiter showed that it has not grown and my thyroid levels has gone down to normal levels. . I'm super happy about that.With school and no income coming in, I can't continue my journey in battling my weight at Jungle fitness, but I would most definitely love to re-join Jungle fitness gym in the near future.Thanks Jesse and Jungle fitness. See you guys soon. More...

JFOC is great and I would recommend it to anyone looking to improve their personal fitness. From weekend warrior to professional athlete they have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to meet your needs. As far as the training goes, it is terrific. After just four months of working out twice a week I am in the best shape of my life. I can do things now that I could never do before and I owe it to Jungle Fitness and Bryan (my trainer). He has come up with new and challenging workouts every day while still keeping focus on my overall fitness goals. At Jungle Fitness they are serious about your health and fitness. More...

Let's face it... Getting that sexy body we've always wanted isn't something that happens overnight. It takes sweat, tears, determination, hard work and sometimes even a little blood. There is NO cheat for this. No magic pill, no easy solution, no compromise. I've always known this on a personal level but throughout the years I've continued to miss my goals and maintain my strong mentality. Tired of looking like a stick, I randomly did a yelp search for gyms in the area and found Jungle Fitness. I was amazed to see all the transformations that others had gone through and I knew that this was it. This was the answer.I love Jungle Fitness. Plain and simple. There is no other gym like it. I've tried going to 24 hour, bally's total, LA fitness and even the UCI Arc but none of them have what Jungle Fitness offers. Here's a quick rundown of why Jungle Fitness OC BETTER THAN eerrrbody else.1. Personal Training: No matter how many times I watched work out videos online for technique, tips, methods and etc., I never was able to replicate them correctly in the gym. Not having something there to correct you on your really hinders your growth and slows down your pace for success. The reason why I love Jungle Fitness is because all the trainers here are EXTREMELY knowledgeable about everything. Health, cardio, muscle building, body weight loss, diet, philosophy, EVERYTHING. They know what they're talking about and they tailor their workout for YOU. CUSTOM MADE. I've never experienced that before in another gym. They pay attention to every detail of my workout and give me so much great information about my form, technique and everything else in between. I've learned more here in 3 months than I have in all the previous years reading from online bodybuilding articles and from friends. 2. Environment: Jungle Gym is an amazing place to work out at. I never feel out of place here. Everyone is extremely friendly and so supportive. I actually know almost every other person here that trains with me. It's a great system of support. It feels like a family and no one is judging each other. All I ever hear are compliments, words of encouragements, and loud high-fives.3. Fun: Don't get me wrong, the workouts here are beyond intense. I've never been worked so hard to my limit before in my life. By the end of the workouts, my body is physically destroyed. I can barely stand on leg days. Despite all this, the best part of coming here and working out is that I'm always having a great time. The trainers are always cracking jokes with us and making sure we're having a good time. The workout routines are also always changed around so you never get bored. Before you know it, the hour is over and your ready for that post-workout protein shake.If health and fitness is as a priority to you as it is to me, then I highly recommend personal training with Jungle Fitness. If you're not sure whether its for you, SUCK IT UP. This is for your health and your health should be one of your TOP priorities. Keep your new years resolution and DO what you know is right! I Love You JUNGLE FITNESS! More...

Seeing that I was steadily gaining wight at 25 caused some self image issues, I wasn't disciplined enough to exercise and my diet was horrible. I began looking for a personal trainer to kick my butt into shape. Luckily I found jungle fitness and signed up not only myself but my siblings that day. John made us feel comfortable right away, he clearly explained how it all worked. What sold me on it was that not only was I going to train my body physically but learn let go of the junk food and follow nutritional diet. After finding out more about our fitness goals he played match maker and placed us each with the ideal trainer. ZURIE!! I am so lucky to train with him, he meets me at 5 Am in the morning and is always full of energy. He is truly passionate about what he does. He is very attentive always has my back when I forget to count. In regards to workouts and nutritions he is extremely knowledgeable. He has me doing things I have never thought of doing, slashing sledgehammer on a giant tire, and even heavy rope swinging. His motivating words and high fives are always waiting at the finish line. Every 2 weeks I get measured and sure enough the scale count lie. The bounds were shedding off. Jungle fitness has exceeded my expectations, it makes the 30 minute commute worth it.I would highly recommend Jungle fitness! For me joining jungle fitness was a life changing experience and the abundance of knowledge I learned is priceless.Thank you Jungle Family.~Norma More...

These guys are awesome! I had my first training session there, it was a blast. The trainers really look out to make sure they're pushing you, but yet keep the level proper, safe and fun! They work muscles that you never knew existed. As a very active and fit individual, I was totally surprised at the effects of changing things up in the workout! The gym is located in a great area, clean, fun attitude, great looking people there to work out with. The owner was so accommodating! VERY HIGHLY recommend this gym to anyone looking to take their fitness to a new level!!! More...

The most hardcore gym I have ever been to but yet, still has a real family feel to it. The personal training team here is the best in Orange County. Sam, Jesse, Qoni, Jon, Bryan, and Zurie are all awesome. Sam is a straight up beast and looks pretty scary at first glance, but is really nice and instructive when you workout with him. Zurie, fresh off his first fitness model contest really knows his stuff and I'm pretty sure his laugh can cure cancer. Qoni, the most experienced trainer there. He's really encouraging and pushes you. Bryan played football at Cal behind Marshawn Lynch. What a beast. He's very performance based and his workouts have challenged my muscles that I didn't even know I had. Jesse killed my core when I worked out with him. Jon is the most hardcore trainer of all. His workouts are killer, and will give you guaranteed gains. I love Jungle Fitness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!!!!!!!!!Eat. Train. Breathe. Repeat. More...

I trained at Jungle for about a month and am incredibly pleased with the progress I made during my stay: I lost about 2. 5 inches around my waist and a significant amount of fat around my arms and thighs. I attribute my success to my trainer Sam who is most definitely a BEAST! I came to Jungle expecting a challenge, which is what was delivered (physically AND mentally) along with sweat and pain (the good kind ;) ). Sam never allowed me to quit and whenever I displayed signs of fatigue and lackluster, he would encourage me until completion. Although I was only able to train for a month, I know that Sam has given me the tools in order to continue with progress on my own. He is extremely knowledgeable and an incredible person overall.Many thanks to Jon, the owner, who made the process of training easy for me. Additionally, many thanks to the other trainers and members of Jungle Fitness for making the environment friendly and welcoming. I could have wanted nothing more—Jungle is truly a remarkable gym with amazing people. More...

After two babies, I realized I needed some serious help getting back into shape and was referred to Qoni and Jungle Fitness by a friend. I had tried personal training at 24 fitness and wasn't really happy with the experience or the hefty price.JF is a hard core trainer's gym - it's not open to the general public so you can't just walk in and workout. But that's a good thing because that means you don't have to wait around for gym equipment to free up so you can get the most of your workout. They train a lot of athletes but they have plenty of regular folk customers working out too. I definitely felt very comfortable there so don't worry, it's not an intimidating place.They have several certified trainers that you can work with - I recommend Qoni because I have had the most experience with him. But all the trainers seem really good and knowledgeable. I always learn something new about nutrition or form or technique every time I go. Plus the trainers take their time, they don't rush you or take 10 minutes out of your workout time doing paperwork or measuring you (unlike 24 HR). You get your time and money's worth here.But I think what I like most about the JF set up is that you NEVER do the same routine. As someone who gets easily bored this is great. The workouts are hard but they do a lot of interesting exercises that you won't find at other gyms. Wait till you do the "plow" and "rope" exercise ;) You will probably be working out with two other clients at the same time. It's actually a good thing because you can motivate each other and have a little bit of a breather between all the exercises! Even though you may be training with another client, Qoni will totally tailor it for your body, so you won't be necessarily be doing the same weight or exercise as the others in your training group.The price is very reasonable too - if you buy in 8 session bundles - it's super reasonable, less than half of what I paid at 24 Hour. (not sure if this package applies to all the trainers though). Just wish I had more babysitter time so I could come in more! I think they also offer cross fit and boot camp too - haven't tried it yet but it looks pretty intense. More...

I have been postponing exercising pretty much my entire life. Yes, I have to admit that I never had enough motivation for it. One day I finally realized how bad shape I was in, and most of all, my wife was really worried sick about my health; high blood pressure, fatty liver & cholesterol after general physical checkups at the local hospital. She found Jungle Fitness for personal training based on reviews in Yelp and forced me to sign up because she knows that I wouldn't go to a regular gym due to lack of my mental commitment. Guys.. believe me.. I was always skeptical about having personal training. I always thought it was really waste of money, and most of all, I really didn't believe in it. Well.. I got finally kidnapped by my wife to sign up with Jungle Fitness for 6 months, 4 midweek program. My personal trainer was Zurie - this guy is animal.. very personal & friendly animal.. lolAnyways.. first couple weeks were so~~ hard for me, not because of the staffs or any training programs, but of my body been out of shape for a long long time. I didn't do any committed or regular physical training for almost 20 years after high school. I almost gave up but I couldn't.. mainly because of my commitment with my wife and Zurie. It's been 6 months now.. and I do love training and my body is in great shape. No high blood pressure nor cholesterol. I lost almost 24 lbs. Now I can't skip even one day because if I do, I literally feel like I didn't do one of my important daily routines, like taking a shower or delicious meal.. if you know what I mean.. hahaGuys.. if you don't know how or where to start work-out and if you are a novice like me or not motivated, then you gotta try these guys. They are just simply the best. It's totally worth it. I know it's more cost than regular gym, but it DOES worth it if you think about your health. The training programs are very systematical and you will actually learn yourself how to train yourself. Then soon one day you will find yourself as an animal in jungles.Love these guys. Go Jungle Fitness!! More...

This gym is by far the BEST gym I've ever been a member of. This is a no nonsense gym with knowledgeable trainers. There's nothing fancy here and no gimmicks, just straight up hard core fitness training. The trainers push you to your limits and you see results right away. Measurements and weight are consistently monitored. There's a professional atmosphere, never too crowded, no waiting to use equipment and an awesome, positive vibe. All other gyms should learn from these guys. I am truly a Jungle Fitness addict. If you're looking to get in shape the RIGHT WAY, then you need to hit these guys up. I am so happy with the progress I've made and I owe it all to JUNGLE! More...

Jungle was an all around awesome experience. I gained roughly 20 pounds in 3 months and, remarkably, lost a couple inches off my waist. I wish I could have stayed for a longer contract and see where that would have taken me, but school has cut me short. As for the trainer himself, Sam was just awesome. Though I don't know about the training regime of the other trainers, I can tell you that Sam is a great man for the job. To tell you a little bit about this guy, he is not a pushover. He doesn't let you cut corners, and he's not afraid to push your limits. In fact, it was because of his killer training methods, my fellow trainees and I forged great relationships. We were like comrades in boot camp, and he was like the crazy drill instructor who was on the hunt to kill every last one of you before the sun set (but in a good way). Because of Sam and Jungle Fitness, I am now more motivated to continue my training back at school. Hopefully, I can find a program similar to this one, but I'll tell you that the experience at Jungle was simply irreplaceable. Thanks Jon and Sam for everything you've done for me, I hope I can see you guys in the winter, even if it's only for a couple weeks! More...

I found Jungle Fitness through Yelp and decided to give it a try. Besides being super close to my house (1.3 miles), they also have awesome hours 5am-10pm I believe. Jon was incredibly nice and very thorough while explaining the different packages and pricing models to me. I decided to do month to month 3x a week to start (if you do 4 or 6 month packages the price decreases). Jon will match you with a trainer that he believes is a perfect fit. Jon matched me with Jesse Sadoff. After coming home and looking up Jesse on FB I realized he had been training an old colleague of mine who in the past 2 years has lost 100lbs!! On day 1 Jesse took the time to listen to what realistic goals I wanted to obtain, he weighed and measured me and also sent me a meal plan/supplement guideline to follow for optimal results. I then did a quick cardio warm up and moved onto our 1st training session. Jesse made sure I had proper form throughout all exercises and listened to me if I needed a break. Jesse kept the mood light and fun the entire time and the hour just flew by! OMG the next day was I sore, there were places on me I didn't even know had muscles. I've only been a few times and am completely hooked, each session is different from the last which keeps it exciting. I would 100% recommend Jesse Sadoff at Jungle Fitness!! More...
