“I am a lean mean machine now thanks to Ray's tireless motivation!”
"Ray is amazing! I have been working with him for about 8 months now. If you asked me 8 months ago where I thought I would be, I would have never been able to dream up where I've actually gotten. So far I have lost 25 pounds and the most amazing stats, gone from 34% body fat to 27.5% and counting. I am a lean mean machine now thanks to Ray's tireless motivation and of course my own hard work. He is an amazing person and cares so much about all of his clients and their goals. He never gives up, even when you want to give up on yourself. This last 8 months has been an incredible journey and through fitness I have been able to have the most amazing holistic experience addressing mind, body and spirit. I joke that training with Ray is my therapy, but I'm kind of serious too. He is easy going, easy to talk to and will tell you like it is. You can always count on him to be honest. If you are looking for a trainer, I ONLY recommend Ray. You will not be disappointed!"
“I’ve lost 22 pounds and dropped 3 dress sizes!”
After signing up for a 3-month package (2x/week), I didn’t have very high expectations for myself. Though Ray seemed very knowledgeable when I spoke to him at our consultation, I’d been working out and trying to lose weight on my own to no avail. I figured I’d try something else just one more time, and it turns out that this is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. So far, I’ve lost 22 pounds and dropped 3 dress sizes!
Though achieving these results wasn’t so easy, Ray has given me all the tools necessary to succeed. I’ve learned valuable lessons from him regarding working out and nutrition. He’s very motivational, always has a smile on his face, and manages to make me laugh even through our brutal workouts. Although lifting weights seemed intimidating at first, Ray never leaves my side, making sure I execute each move correctly, so as not to injure myself. It’s not easy, but the outcome is definitely worth all the hard work!
“I have never felt as strong and healthy as I do now…”
The best decision I have made towards my fitness goals was to bring Ray on board as my personal trainer. No stranger to the gym, for the last 10+ years I have incorporated the gym into my active lifestyle. I felt I had reached my plateau and was really uninspired with the same repetitive exercises I had learned throughout the years. I needed a breath of fresh air, something to inspire me to reach 110% and I found that in Ray. It is never a dull moment as he motivates you to push yourself past your limits.
Finally the gym is no longer mundane, yet instead is now something to eagerly look forward to. He will never run out of new exercises and variations on the ones you thought you knew. He will not only challenge your muscles and strengthen your core, but also engage you mentally. You won’t believe how fast an hour will go by and how many calories you have burned! That’s the beauty of it.
I have never felt as strong and healthy as I do now, and I will proudly thank Mr. Vargas for that and for his continued support and encouragement. He will support you along the way with advice on sensible nutrition, effective cardio, and of course an endless array of exercises which will work multiple muscles for maximum efficiency. It is clear that Ray is truly passionate about optimal fitness, as he is continually attending trainings and workshops to bring the latest and greatest to your next session. Most importantly he sets himself apart with his sincerity and care for his clients, as it is truly a partnership in health.
“Ray covers everything and he will never give up on you”
I’ve had personal trainers on and off for the last 7 years, but no one has ever stood out to make me want to sign up with them again… until I met Ray.
I started searching for a personal trainer a few months before my wedding and upon some research on Yelp, I came across Isotonex. Based on such stellar reviews, I decided to give Ray a try, but I have to admit… I was a bit skeptical, after all, who can have so many reviews all of them 5 stars, right??
Well, Ray can and after you meet with him, you just know that you are in good hands. From the food plan (which includes, daily food journal monitoring and trust me, he will make you accountable to do it and you want that), to the personalized exercise plan that will fit your lifestyle and get you results, to the support and energy to get you motivated…
Ray covers everything and he will never give up on you, even when you start giving up on yourself.
Every workout with Ray it’s like working out for the first time. Not only does he keep changing the routine making it fun and exciting, he makes sure that my entire body is worked out, which makes me feel amazing when I’m done. Ray is such a great genuine guy, who always cares about his clients and always makes sure, the client he is with is his main priority. His sessions are 60 minutes and that means nothing less than that – for those of you who have experienced careless trainers, who are always looking at the time, rather than concentrate on the client, you know what I mean.
I first signed up for a 3 month plan, to get me ready for my wedding, which was on October 2, 2010. I’ve had my ups and downs, but Ray was right there fighting with me, supporting me and making sure I would not give up… I felt amazing on my Wedding day, therefore I decided to sign up with him for another 3 months. If I was getting married now, I would make sure I would meet with him 1 year before the wedding… He is that worth it!!
“Ray completely changed the way I think about fitness and working out.”
After taking a bet with a friend to see who could get into better shape I was introduced to Ray by a fellow gym member. After our first meeting I knew this was the guy I wanted on my side to get me into shape. He set me up with a nutritional plan and workout regimen. Ray completely changed the way I think about fitness and working out.I always look forward to my training sessions with Ray. He is constantly motivating me and pushing me to my limits, teaching me new things every session. I have been going to the same gym for the past 10 years with minimal results, just doing the same routine over and over. After working with Ray I lost 20 lbs. in 12 weeks! (And won the bet!!)
Ray has always been very professional in every way, and he truly cares about my individual needs. Knowing that I have had 3 knee surgeries Ray customized a workout routine specifically for me, and it works. I definitely would not be in the shape I’m in today without Ray.
“He always gives focused attention to all of his clients…”
In the past, I had great trainer who’s workout style was top-notch. In early 2009, I decided it was again time to get back to working with a fitness professional to take my results to the next level. I am not easily impressed and based off my previous experiences I knew hiring a trainer that could meet my expectations was not going to be an easy task. I was looking for a trainer with a personalized approach and someone that could motivate me to be my best. After several weeks of watching all the trainers at my gym, Ray’s training style and his ISOTONEX system stood out as cut above all others. His dynamic workouts and vast knowledge of ALL aspects of fitness really impressed me. He always gives focused attention to all of his clients and provides detailed guidance with nutrition as well. Do not get me wrong, he will make you work your butt off; however you cannot argue with the dramatic results his clients attain. Ray is there to support you on every level and his upbeat personality will make the time spent in the weight room fun. There is NO DOUBT that as long as you are willing to do the work, ISOTONEX will deliver the results you desire!!
