In today’s competitive fitness community, the difference between being fit and having the opportunity to progress, truly depends on the coaching and programming. Due to ideal programming at High Definition Training, I was able to see myself get stronger, body fat decrease, and increased lean muscle mass. Their great understanding of program design and human interaction is second to none. The best part, they make you feel like their only client while training in a group setting. I would recommend this training program and system over any other.
I used to be a runner and enjoyed exercising daily until a few years ago; when I needed two knee surgeries. Unable to run, I looked into different exercise programs at the local gym, yoga classes, Zumba etc. While they are all ok, it wasn’t getting the results I wanted for myself. I wanted to try something different.
I came across High Definition Training while I went to ask about the Zumba classes at a local Martial Arts studio. I met Angel, a fitness coach doing group training at the studio. He convinced me to try a training session. After the session I was hooked. More impressive was the impeccable coaching and fitness assessment he gave me prior to me starting the program. It told a lot about me and my body. I was given corrective exercises to do at home and prior to the training session.
Today I feel great, my knees are much better and training has changed my life drastically. I am more focused than ever and can tackle anything that comes my way mentally, emotionally, and physically. It doesn’t matter what age you are, it’s all about wanting to feel better and healthier. I feel lighter than ever, healthier and more flexible. Angel has shown me a higher level of training and that I won’t get anywhere else. I am no longer weak or tired. I always feel strong and full of energy. I look forward with eager anticipation to the training sessions.
A High Definition Training member for life!
I found out about HDT through a random flyer upon entering my local grocery store… I took a chance and called the number, that’s the day my fitness life changed. I met Angel and found him to be very professional, with great energy. If you’re looking for a juice head trying to preach about starvation and pill regimes…Angel is not your man.
He assessed my current physical condition prior to any workout and then spent time finding out about me and my goals. I’d recently had a completely severed ACL, I was super nervous about exercise and being re injured. I also have severe asthma. Angel quickly assured me he would curtail my workout to suit me. We began our journey, quickly my mental attitude was in a place of doubt and discomfort…It showed all over my face, the other women during the training session, all of different ages and backgrounds quickly assured me that I would be ok and it will get better “the discomfort of getting back into working out” Angel says don’t worry about how fast or how many times you can do a particular exercise,just concentrate on form to get better.
I thought to myself, wow I’ve never heard that before, in the past with other trainers I’ve been pushed to do more even if I just couldn’t. I knew then I had found something special. Time went on and my goal was not to have any “fat” wedding pictures…I refused, 9 months till the day I kept going, each session feeling more agile and full of energy, I looked forward to seeing the girls and being part of a team of people who had similar goals in mind. Each week Angel would bring new training tools very unconventional to what you see in gyms, but we all tried his methods and surprisingly they were so cool and held to his key principle, keep your form and focus on movement and becoming better.
I was not only given great tools to keep my workout exciting but also given knowledge on food intake and great books to read. I tried a gluten free diet, and yes being Latin and a bread lover this was extremely challenging. The first two weeks were hard but with Angel’s support and my team, I not only got through the withdrawal of gluten, they all got to see my body transform rapidly. I would always carry my asthma pump, and stop and pump, almost five times per session. While slimming down and eliminating gluten I stopped all use of my asthma pump. There’s no pill my friends…it was a lot of hard work and dedication to myself and training.
Months closer to my wedding date, Angel started to train me apart from the team so I could reach my goals. I was challenged like never before. I became stronger, leaner, and at one point a random man in the gym watched in sheer amazement of what Angel was challenging me to do and said ” bro you’re going to kill her” while he chuckled and looked over and said “nah she’s a beast, she’ll be fine” in conclusion I didn’t hit my goal weight..Better yet I fit nicely into my wedding attire…I even had to alter my clothing.
Angel won’t focus on just your weight. He’s more concerned with proper form and movements, feeling and moving better. He is also concern with your attitude, and overall well-being. The weight will come off! He doesn’t scream or stand over you taunting you while you struggle, he is very focused on what you can do, and not what you think you can’t. He’s a man who has an extreme passion for fitness and movement. I’m only human and at times have lost my will to keep pushing, and Angel unlike any other trainer won’t give up, he will send text asking how you are doing. He never pushes; he just quietly lets you know when you’re ready. He is there to support you.
Life happens, folks but if you’re really interested in change only you can do it, Angel and his company HDT will be the ultimate tool and support for your journey. Training at High Definition Training has changed my life and my way of thinking forever. It’s a special gift to be around Angel who lives for what he does and lives his mission statement.
My sister had asked me to come to train with High Definition during the summer in 2013, but it was not only her pushing that made me become a member of HDT. I work as a nutritionist and it was my belief that in order to be the best I possibly can at doing my job and helping others, I had to better understand the way my own body works and what it needs to be as efficient as possible. I wanted to see how a new method of training, not just running for hours on end on a treadmill, could change my body and let me reach the goals I wanted to achieve.
I have been training with Angel and High Definition for nearly a year, although it’s hard to believe that it has been that long already. Since joining HDT, I have become incredibly more fit and stronger than I ever thought possible. Every day I train with Angel I look forward to what new challenges he will have for me and I am eager to learn new exercises and tackle new endeavors. There is never a boring moment.
Through training with Angel and HDT, I have learned how to treat my body better and how to combine nutrition, supplements and training to create a version of myself that will never stop improving and will remain hungry to achieve every goal I set for myself and that Angel sets for me.
Angel is amazing, patient and works at your pace. High Definition Training has been the best strength training I’ve experienced, will never step foot in another GYM!!
My name is Raquel Miranda. I am 35 years old and a single mom to an amazing 6 year old young man. In the last few years I have had my fair share of ups and downs which were affecting my health in a major way. The last health issue I was faced with was enough to change my entire mindset. In 2011, I decided to take control, at 234 pounds (my heaviest) I knew I couldn’t keep going on this way. Not for me and definitely not for my son (who fought for his life being born at 28 weeks an only weighing 2 pounds).
I began to incorporate exercise and decided to join High Definition Training founded by Angel Perez. Angel educated me on proper exercise and nutrition. I even learned about better sleeping patterns. It was not easy….I would get discouraged but I never gave up. Today I am 54 pounds lighter and feeling amazing! I am a work in progress and know for certain that I will continue on this journey. Thanks to High Definition Training’s dedication I will get there.
I became very impressed on how Angel educated others on lifestyle changes and methods to lose weight and get fit. I asked him to train me and after a few months, I started to see results. I could not believe how much physically and mentally stronger I felt. His encouragement,strength and overall desire to see me succeed was tremendous. When I thought I could not do it anymore he helped me pull through and I will be forever grateful. High Definition Training is dedicated in not only achieving ones goals but making the client better.
