Here's what other people have said about me...
Brandon's advice and guidance regarding my lifting form improved my life ten fold! I am an avid lifter but found myself sidelined a few months ago due to serious back pain. During my session with Brandon, he laid out a foundational philosophy of lifting, explaining how the body works as a holistic unit to lift heavy weight (for instance, who knew that how you engage your shoulder blades or inner thighs also affects how you are able to engage your trunk during squats?? When he explained it, it made perfect sense, but I'd never have realized it on my own). He then watched me as I lifted, scrutinized my form, and gave me both detailed feedback and an easy-to-follow action plan to address the problems with my form. Just 45 minutes with him dramatically changed how I felt after every lifting session, and I was able to progress in weight steadily by implementing his advice. Also, Brandon's warm and open demeanor makes it an absolute pleasure to work with him. My session with him was simply invaluable--definitely time well spent!
Incredible! Brandon is friendly, knowledgeable, and is a great listener. I wanted a workout that strengthened my body while taking in consideration an injured knee, separated abdomen from twins, and that I'll remember without looking at a piece of paper. He inspires me to the next level each time with kind motivation. I defiantly recommend him!!
Brandon is my trainer at the Equinox San Mateo, and he is a key factor in my journey to transform my body into a healthy one (so far I've lost 85 pounds, only 4 to go). I told Brandon I want to make this transformation last, and so that I need a super simple plan that I can do on my own when the time is right and yet to have the maximum impact possible. He did just that: we've worked together to perfect 3 key exercises that cover every muscle in your body, and started pushing upwards with how much weight was on the barbell. We've added a few "small" exercises to strengthen some problematic areas, and it is helping a lot. Brandon pushed me hard without me feeling pushed, he has just the exact personality that I needed (he is not one of those full-of-ego trainers or those loud ones that make both their customers and me uncomfortable with their unfunny comments), he is very knowledgeable about weight lifting, super cautious about just the perfect posture that you need to maintain to avoid injury and achieve results, and overall just an awesome trainer to work with. I highly recommend Brandon if you really are in it for the long hall.
I worked with Art of Self-Alignment throughout 2014 and plan to continue for a long time to come. Brandon has helped me become stronger physically and taught me how to help myself when aches and pains creep in at the most inopportune time. His expertise has helped me overcome nagging backaches, deal with weekend warrior injuries and be more self-assured about living without pain.
