Trainers Burbank, Ca

Joseph Altamirano


“In my studies at university,” says Joseph, “I took preparatory coursework for students aiming to become nurses and/or physical therapists. Slow motion strength training is consistent with all the knowledge that I’ve acquired studying biology, chemistry, physics, anatomy, and human physiology. And since I’ve been training in this manner continuously for over 15 years, my ability to attain and maintain the fitness level that I currently enjoy is a testament to the system. This is how I’m able to play Dodgeball games with kids 20 years younger than me AND still DOMINATE!!!”

Joseph says he loves to work with people who underestimate the necessity of strength training in achieving their fitness goals. Most of his clients are surprised by the radical departure from conventional thinking that this type of training represents. ”The once-a-week workout frequency, compared to mainstream exercise prescriptions, is too hard to believe, at first. Then, after having gone through an actual workout, new trainees are scratching their heads wondering why the fatigue that would normally be experienced after two hours of physical exertion is being felt after just 20 minutes lifting weights. When the physical results start manifesting to the point where friends and relatives are starting to notice (loss of body fat, improvement in muscle tone, fitting better in clothing, etc.), clients are extremely happy that they listened to me and are eager to tell anybody else who will listen.”


Our gym facility in Burbank, he says, is also ideal. “Most of my clients that have gone through training with me on sub-par equipment really appreciate the value of the medical-grade SuperSlow retrofitted MedX exercise machinery designed for the ideal execution of the protocol. They know the ugliness of training on equipment with lots of friction. They are aware of the discomfort of using machinery that is not engineered in a biomechanically correct way. They also like not having the distraction of too many people in the room to adversely affect their workout for any number of reasons.”

“Our studio is literally super cool! I love the fact that the A/C is on and that the environment is both dry and cool for the purposes of optimizing human muscle performance and the prevention of unnecessarily profuse sweating.”
