I had ClassPass for about 2 years and went to dozens of gyms around town. As someone who works out 5-6 days/week, when ClassPass got rid of unlimited classes, their model no longer worked for my budget. I chose Brainstorm Fitness (was Function First back then) as my sole gym because of the trainers, the other members of the gym and the amazing classes. From day one, everyone in every class was super welcoming and it felt like a community, not just a gym. The trainers are AMAZING and you won't find workouts like theirs anywhere else (I know because I've tried a majority of them). Brainstorm caters to YOUR needs and helps you reach whatever your personal goals are through their small group or personal training sessions. I can't speak more highly of Brainstorm Fitness and recommend it for anyone looking for great workouts with instructors who really know what they're doing and can tailor any workout to your needs/goals.

Brainstorm Fitness is a high quality operation. The facility is clean and well-organized, with a wide range of equipment for functional training including TRX, ViPR and standard free weights, med balls of various types, ropes, bands, and the oh-so-awesome Core-Tex. The owner, George-Anthony, and his team of trainers are simply great. I love Julia's morning classes, especially the cardio-focused interval training - it's a perfect way to start the day! More...

I just started attending through class pass and I wish I could go everyday!  George Anthony and Julia have been my instructors and they are great.  The work outs are different everyday and they are fun and challenging.  You feel like you get one on one attention.  All the members are range in age.  They are all so nice and supportive too!  Great place for functional fitness regardless of age.

Excellent training staff, training techniques, emphasis on safety, and equipment. I got a really good workout and was able to challenge myself with George-Anthony's great guidance. The other people who've attended the classes are very nice, too! More...

I cannot say enough about George-Anthony and Brainstorm fitness! I came looking for a transformation (mind and body) and that's exactly what I'm getting. The unique training style George-Anthony and his trainers deliver is so effective. I have trained with other great trainers and in other great gyms but this training is different. It's more than weights and functional exercises. This is "SMART" fitness. It's about mobility, intensity and variation. It's transformative! Every class is different, even the equipment is crazy different. My body hasn't had an opportunity to get used anything because every session changes. The gym is unbelievably clean (which I appreciate sooo much because so many gyms out there are gross) and it's ridiculously organized which adds to the great ambiance.In addition to the awesome hardcore training and great ambiance this review would not be complete without calling out the kindness and generosity of the owner George-Anthony. I was introduced through a gift certificate that I received for 30 days of free training during the Susan G Komen walk. This was a gift he offered to Breast Cancer Survivors and Pre-Vivors. After 4 surgeries this year, this gift really touched my heart! Honestly, it was exactly what I needed to get back on track after an extremely tough year. Thank you Brainstorm Fitness and George-Anthony! You have a fan for life! More...

Brainstorm Fitness is truly something special. It's a small gym run with passion and a clear commitment to the health of their clients.  A boutique gym with equipment and methods you will find nowhere else in San Diego, I love the unique training methods and the fact that there are no crowds. They specialize in functional and corrective personal training and small group classes where each person is given individualized attention and instruction. They also have a passion for martial arts and offer amazing muy thai and boxing classes offered by actual trained and professional fighters!I started here this year during early summer taking classes. Soon after I was seeking out help with my chronic pain due to a knee injury and being out of shape. This gym is masterful at accommodating injuries/limitations, to help build you back to strength. The heart and soul of Brainstorm reflects that of its creator George Anthony Dulal-Whiteway this is a place where professionalism, patience, kindness, humility and dedication are the order of the day. He is very knowledge on diet, muscles and their connection thru the whole body. He explained each exercise in such detail and what the purpose of it and helped me train with proper posture. And his expertise in functional training and corrective exercise have taught me to push toward mental barriers and changed my life by helping me to take back control of my body from the pain.There are a lot of trainers out here in San Diego, but none of them can compare to GEORGE ANTHONY, he is simply the best trainer out there. He is very professional, knowledgeable  and each client is treated with a personal flare which sets for serious training and results. As long as I am living in San Diego, I will train nowhere else!

Ouch!!! Sorry, that was my core talking after taking the Ab Lab class. George-Anthony kicked my butt this week w/his ab class but I will be thanking him after 3 pieces of garlic bread I had tonight & ice cream earlier this week!  Brainstorm is a great spot to train if you're looking for fun & dynamic classes. I have the attention span of a squirrel so I enjoyed his class because we did different exercises throughout - enough to keep my attention for an hour! He has some equipment that other gyms don't have like the core-tex & the viper.  Also, I took a class with Charles that was also fun & a good workout. I will def be coming back! It is also a veteran owned business, which I love to support. More...

I absolutely love this gym! I love the dynamics of the classes, or knowledge of the instructors, the people in the classes, and the cleanliness! I'd recommend stopping in to check it out through Class Pass. Every class is unique. More...

George-Anthony is a great coach! gets you to do things you never thought you can do! the facility is extremely clean, the focus and attention from the trainers are pristine and their equipment is state of the art! I've been to numerous training facilities that focus on one or two of these items, but this place takes the CAKE.  Love this place - and can't wait to go back  :D More...

just completed 10 sessions with george-anthony-wanted to switch up my weightlifting routine and he definitely came through with new exercises, movements, and paradigms his new spot has the usual gear as mentioned in other reviews but it also has unique equipment- THE core-tex, some crazy sphere dumbbells, and a core stix trainer (you just have to witness it as it may be the only one in town) i highly recommend brainstorm fitness and will definitely return to george-anthony in a couple months.

I can't say enough about what a great experience I had with George-Anthony! I have met alot of personal trainer's as a Business Banker which is how I met George-Anthony and I can say without a doubt that he was the only one that inspired me to give this thing a shot. He tought me how to workout the right way and how to be creative and make the most use of my time at the gym. I no longer circle around the gym waiting for machines or benches to be available. My waist is smaller, my legs are bigger, pretty much he took me to the next level and I will definitely be back! If you want someone to be able to motivate you and someone who is educated and experienced to work with someone that has past or current injuries to help you function better he is your guy! More...
