    I was delighted to see that you singled out Jonathan Uphoff as one of the best personal trainers. He is an incredible trainer that I have worked with for about 5 years. With his help I have lost significant amount of weight, and have become much stronger. His facility, San Diego Fitness, is wonderful. Lots of great equipment, and other great trainers. Having a personal trainer I think is critical, particularly for women who need to gain muscle which helps with weight loss as well as improving bone strength, balance, and preventing injury. Most women do not know how to train with weights and having someone to teach and motivate you is so important. Congratulations Jonathan!
