If you ask my opinion about Shane of Mervau Fitness I will say every time he is the best trainer around hands down. I have been training with him off and on for 2 years now and there is a reason I go back every time. My friend had referred me to Mervau Fitness. Before I met Shane I had zero knowledge about weight lifting. I was always on cardio machines. I lacked confidence to even go to the weights area at the gym simply because I didn't know what I was doing.Working with Shane has helped me learn about weight lifting - correctly - not just picking up a dumbbell or using a machine and doing reps, but the quality in technique, form, learning what muscle groups are used, how various pieces of equipment's weight are distributed. He has helped me understand how weights are building blocks to other bigger movements to keep accelerating vs plateau. I've learned how to create my own circuits so I can still be effective on my own as well.I have attended private 1 on 1's as well as attended group classes and both are great. You will learn, you will sweat, you will have fun while doing it in either setting and sessions will never have the same which I love because it challenges your body.Shane's method will prove to you that you are stronger than you think and when you see for your self that you truly are stronger, whether your focus is weight loss or strength training the knowledge he has will make you want more.Shane's creativity, passion and experience cannot be found anywhere else. That is why I drive from Woodland Hills to Ventura  and if for some reason I take a break, I always go back.I honestly can't say enough great things about Shane as a trainer or about the great experiences I have had over the 2 years.If you are looking for a trainer who is just as focused on your own goals as you I highly recommend Shane of Mervau Fitness.

If you are looking to get in shape or have ever had interest in fitness I highly suggest working with Shane of Mervau Fitness. I feel like I have learned more about working out with good form safely, and with more intensity than I have learned in the last 10 years trying to teach myself.Shane is great about explaining and demonstrating what exercises I should be focusing on to achieve my goals. He focuses on what will help me out as an individual and what I need to do to make my body balanced and strong. I started with high hopes, but after only 1 month of training with Shane I already far surpassed what I thought was possible in such a short time. An unexpected plus is Shane will record your lifts for you, then break your form down and let you know what you are doing right and what to improve on. Each set gets better and better. The workouts are challenging and I always walk out feeling great. More...

--Who is Shane?--Besides being an olympic lifter, a veteran of the mma octagon, and decorated wrestler? The moment you step into the gym, Shane is your personal trainer and mentor. I clearly remember the first time I saw him. After climbing up the flight of stairs to his space and putting down my gear, we start off with a physical evaluation. He asks me to do bodyweight squats in place and immediately goes to work, unassumingly tapping a few muscles and observing my form. He identifies muscular imbalances in my hamstrings, traps, and shoulders that, mind you, were already giving me problems (but that I had never mentioned or knew how to verbalize). "Have you done deadlifts? How do they feel? What about heavy squats?" And within the first 30 minutes of my session, I have at least 3 "Aha" moments and am completely blown away by his intuitive understanding of the human body. It's almost like magic.--Can you tell me about your experience so far?--I deeply believe that the most profound growth we can experience is in the midst of discomfort -- it's a catalyst for long-term success. I go where demand is high, and the expectation is to perform. This is what Shane brings to the table, and he isn't for everyone.He will push you to your physical limits. That extra pull. The next five swings. The final minute-and-a-half of slams. But what's even more mind-boggling is how consistently he can do it and how he is more tuned into your own body than you are.There have been days where I felt like absolute crap because of the Thanksgiving binge, the exhaustively stressful day at work, or family problems. Shane will sense that (sometimes without you even noticing) and re-tailor the session to keep the bar right at your physical ceiling, but without being unnecessarily overwhelming.--Would you recommend him?--Are you serious? Get off of Yelp and get on the phone with him.Right now.In fact, if you sign up, I'm sure we'll meet in person. I've seen him 3 times a week for the past 6 months and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.Cheers,Jeremy More...

Shane is a true master of fitness - not one to be content with showing you a machine and counting out loud - he thinks about your body and needs and develops fitness routines to help!  I'm a "seasoned" man and have had more trainers than you can imagine.  Shane is one of a kind!!!  I just ordered jeans one size smaller thanks to him!  He is kind encouraging and non-judgmental.  Do yourself a favor and book him - you'll be better for it!!!

I have known Shane for many years but never trained with him, he taught me a lot in just the first session.  He taught me that you can work different muscles with very little equipment just depending on the angle.  He pushed me to understand my body but is not one of the over bearing trainers you often see. He cares about his clients a lot or as he says his family.  he is very knowledgeable on the human anatomy and loves what he does, that's hard to find. Sometimes you find trainers that are just there for the job or the money, not Shane.  He loves what he does and loves his family that he trains.  He helps out anyone and everyone doesn't matter who, he just wants to help.  I'm glad that I'm training with him and can't wait to see the end results.

Shane, is an excellent personal trainer! He's very knowledgeable on what it takes in order to reach your fitness goals and pushes you to your limits. Along with that he's patient and encouraging. Also he and his partner Cory are very accommodating in working around your schedule. I was very lucky a friend recommended me to him or I would've been struggling on my own to accomplish my fitness goals. If you want to make real changes I recommend Mervau Fitness More...

I contacted Shane through ThumbTack after picking through a dozen different trainers that responded. After just a 1-hour initial assessment, I've got to say I was really impressed - from detailing every muscle that was involved to his OCD on proper position, to his fully detailed curriculum, he clearly knows his stuff. Everyone in the gym raved about him behind his back. :) Totally focused on having fun, learning how to do things properly instead of quickly or with bigger weights, and extremely focused on getting to know my goals and what I wanted to achieve. Highly recommended! More...

I started training with Shane about a month ago. What I love about his training method, is that he customizes it to your body! In the past, I have always just gone straight into a super fast paced group cardio class or a spinning class. Not with Shane, he shows you how to stretch and explains each step and why you are doing them. I really appreciate everything he has shown me so far, and I am so excited to continue my fitness journey with him! Give his workouts a try, you will not regret it! More...
