Invest in your body. Train with Caitlyn Dunphy – I think there are two types of trainers: those who catch you fish and those who teach you how to catch your fish. I went to Diakadi Body to shake up my work out routine and LEARN things about fitness, well-being and GET to another level. I had been working out with some great personal trainers for the last 4 years in another gym and I thought nothing would shake me to the core at DIAKADI (pun is totally intended). At DIAKADI I had an honor to work out with Caitlyn Dunphy (she goes by Caitlyn Allen on the webpage. They apparently haven't updated her page) who was fantastic. She is one of those who teaches you how to catch a fish. Be warned though: she will make you sweat, moan and feel the muscles you didn't know existed. What I really liked about Caitlyn is that she really wants you to understand your body, what you can do with it and succeed in achieving your fitness goals. At the first session she did full body assessment including your posture, proper body movement and tested your strength to customize her session accordingly. She was also very careful to write down your goals and expectations. That set a very solid ground for the success of our work out session. Each day with Caitlyn was a lot of work, a lot of sweat, a lot of learning and also a lot of FUN. And yes with her professional help I did achieve my goals and I had to shop for a whole new wardrobe! :-) But most importantly Caitlyn gave me knowledge that is going to last me my lifetime which is the best investment you can make.
Diakadi - Best Gym with the Best Personal Trainers – Diakadi Body is the best gym with the best trainers! This gym definitely has the best environment for Personal Training, truly offering a "Zen-like" experience compared to any other gym I've been to. Diakadi offers a whole new approach to Personal Fitness as its a gym where the sole focus is Personal Training. When I first began training here six months ago, I wanted to find a gym, where I could focus on my fitness goals. I was training for my first Marathon, the San Francisco Marathon and wanted to take my running to the next level. I've always been an avid runner, but knew I needed to work on my core if I really wanted to become a faster and stronger runner. Thanks to my trainer Luis Chirinos, my core and physical endurance has become stronger than it has ever been in my life! Since I have been training with Luis I have ran several PR's and my 5K Race time is now faster than it was in High School. I even placed 4th overall in a recent Race in San Francisco and have had several top 10 finishes, most importantly I finished the SF Marathon in August and felt strong throughout the race, thanks to the core building exercises from my training. Luis is one amazing dedicated personal trainer and really knows the mechanics of the human body, providing me with the best core-strengthening and balance exercises, which has taken my running to the next level!
Best trainers and training facility in the city. – If you want to work out with a personal trainer, this is it! Diakadi body has all fitness levels. The facility has tons of different equipment in an environment that is clean, functional and cool. My trainer has provided diverse workouts that meet all my objectives and leave me drenched and coming back for more. They do a great job of limiting the number of trainers working at any given time so it never feels crowded. Everyone there is working with a trainer, so everyone is in the same boat you are. If you are serious about working with a trainer.... DO IT! When I started, I was so out of shape, walking up the stairs to Diakadi left me winded. I lost 25 pounds, have kept it off for 2 years, have competed in a triathlon and a half marathon and am in the best shape of my life. If you want to change, if you have a goal, if you need a little help, Diakadi is the BEST and only answer.
Best Trainer (Billy Polson) and Best Health Club – Billy tailors your workout to your specific needs. He is great in helping you to come back from injuries and in guiding you to avoid new injuries. He helped me come back from shoulder surgery that some surgeons said I would not fully recover from. He continually revises your workout to reflect your progress and to keep your workout interesting. Billy inspires you to do the best that you possibly can. Most important is that he makes working out lots of fun, helped by his quick wit and constant interest in you as a person.
Diakadi is the cleanest facility I have ever worked out in. The equipment is state of the art, and there are thoughtful amenities everywhere. The atmosphere is always positive and upbeat. Best place to work out in SF or anywhere! I would give Billy and Diakadi more stars if they were offered.
Best gym ever – After 30 years of lupus, a ruptured lumbar disc, and six joint surgeries ? including two hip replacements ? I never thought I'd be able to walk without pain. But after working with Richard, Diakadi's staff physical therapist, my back and sore joints healed and I could finally exercise without discomfort. Then I added Lynne to my regimen and my fitness really started to take off. I do Yoga and Pilates moves that I never thought I would be able to do. My stamina has gone way up, from ten minutes of cardio to almost an hour.
Diakadi has really changed my life. Every other gym I've been to the trainers pushed me beyond my limits and I always ended up hurt. At Diakadi my trainers really wanted to understand my health needs and work with them rather than against them. In almost two years I've never been hurt. I started out with a cane and now I'm walking and hiking and never need my cane.
Everyone is friendly and supportive and from day one I felt comfortable and at home. It's a gym where regular folks work out alongside world-class athletes and no one feels out of place.
Diakadi is the Best – Diakadi is amazing. I don't know what I would do without them. Every single person -from the trainers to the physical therapists to the receptionists - is so nice and extremely professional. My trainer is constantly staying connected to the latest advances in training and working out and has truly changed my life. Diakadi is THE BEST!!!
Great atmosphere ~ great training~ Albert Jovel – If you are looking for a new body or even trying to fix the one you have I highly recommend you tour Diakadi Body. I have had a gym membership since my teens when I worked out because my father was an avid swimmer. In fact my whole family is athletic. I have trained as a dancer and lifted weights, done aerobics, run, as well as played many sports including tennis, swimming, skiing, handball, biking and my latest passion soccer (which I took up at the age of 45). Having been a personal trainer for a few years I know how to check out the trainers as well as the gym. At Diakadi the trainers are truly personal trainers, they pay attention to you, they are not talking on their cell phones or looking around the gym. I also know a few of the trainers personally because I worked with them over the years, they are top notch. The gym is *CLEAN*, well lit and pleasant, never crowded. So why would I go there? Well, since having an ACL reconstruction a few years ago I noticed I have had little injuries and pain, tendinitis etc. and was always seeking treatment until I realized I never recovered my running form. I chose to work with Albert Jovel because I knew he specialized in sports specfic training,has great credentials, and he is a third generation soccer player. After just 3 sessions I am aware of corrections I have to work on and feeling confident about being ready for the fall season! Albert is extremely knowledgeable and patient, always prepared and really goes above and beyond what I would expect. If you are serious about your health and fitness this is the best investment you can make in your future! If you are looking for date head to one of the other gyms!
More Than a Typical Gym – DIAKADI is not your average gym, this is a supremely positive environment where people are excited to be working and training. You can't help but feel the energy that abounds from the trainers and clients who are having a great time and improving the quality of their lives. I recommend this as the first stop for anyone that is interested in creating new patterns of health and positivity in their lives.
Best trainers in SF. – DIAKADI is home to the friendliest staff and best personal trainers (and best physical therapist) I've ever met, and I've been in the business for over six years! If you want top-notch training and attention, and to achieve a physical state you've only ever dreamed of, call DIAKADI.
