Dear Howard Skora, senior fitness manager,
I felt it was important to write a letter expressing my excellent experience hiring Gold’s trainer, Josh Squyres, when I first joined the gym in Venice, CA.
As most people I have spoken to, initially, when you walk into the Venice location, the place can be easily intimidating, particularly for women due to the masculine reputation of the gym. Luckily, when I initially joined, I expressed interest in working for a few months with a personal trainer. My objectives were twofold: first, get comfortable with the various pieces of equipment in the gym, and of course, to get toned. Luckily, I was given the opportunity to work with Josh Squyres, who I found to be an excellent trainer. Not only was he able to help me achieve my various objectives, but more importantly, I found that he had many personal and professional skill sets that far exceeded my expectations.
While working with Josh, I was surprised to learn of Josh’s extensive background: working as a personal trainer for almost 10 years as well as coaching collegiate strength & conditioning. Every week we had a specific plan and Josh came prepared with various exercises based on my objectives. Additionally, he had other personal skill sets that made him a great trainer. Specifically, I observed he had exceptional listening skills and was able to effectively communicate my questions, and concerns. Finally, I noticed not only did he show good ability to build a relationship with me, but others around him. Overall, I believe that Josh is an unbelievable asset to your organization and would recommend him to anyone who wants not only great trainer, but an overall great person.
