High Performance Team Trainer Larry Cook
Personal Trainer in Woodland Hills

I am an accredited coach and competitor with over 11 years of experience in the fitness industry.  I began training while still studying for a Kinesiology/Exercise Science degree at Orange Coast College. My roots in fitness go back to age 11 when I began occasionally waking up early to do calisthenics and aerobics with my mother, a hospital nurse and aerobics instructor.  By the time I entered hIgh school, I was hooked.

I have my primary certification with NASM but I have also been certified by AFAA and have a kickboxing certification, as well. I have worked not only as a trainer but also for two years as a “Fitness Director.”  As head manager of the entire training department for Bally Total Fitness in Culver City, my primary responsibility was to keep the training program fresh, exciting, and profitable.  I had over fifty personal trainers working for me,  all of whom I hired and trained with the latest training techniques.  After 3 years, I left Bally’s and began my experience as a physique competitor.

My competitive years, 2006-07, were an invaluable experience which helped me to mature and excel as a personal trainer.  In 2006 I competed in the Muscle Mania World Championships and placed 4th in my weight class.  Before I competed, I had been very successful in getting people to vastly improve their appearance and physical fitness but I had yet to coach anyone to the point of being truly elite.  To even qualify to enter a physique competition, one has to endure, on average, 6 months of rigorous training and dieting.   Imagine if you decided to enter the LA marathon and intended not only to finish but to place in the top 20.  You have to keep your full time job while you are in training, which forces you to learn a level of discipline you never thought yourself capable of.   The sense of achievement and pride you attain from meeting this challenge can permanently change your self image.  My competition experience have me the skills to make a person with a below average physique into a fitness competitor. I have had the pleasure of helping several people to reach a level of fitness they never thought possible.

I believe I can coach anyone to become physically elite, if they so desire.  I have had experience with children, elderly, handicapped, athletes, and novice trainees.  I have helped to rehab injuries for every major joint, including tendonitis, chondromalacia, plantar fascitis, abdominal tears, scoliosis, frozen shoulder, bulging or fused discs, ACL reconstruction, bone spurs and osteophytes, etc.  I have delt with eating disorders, diabetes, diverticulitis, rheumatoid arthritis and patients with major organ transplants. I am able to correct major postural distortions like swayback, knock-nees, and pronation.  I can train people to improve athletic performance factors such as agility, coordination, balance, and flexibility.  Most of all, my competition experience has made me an expert at shaping and toning specific areas of the body.

The secret of my success is attention to detail and customer service.  I will be with you face to face 2-4 hours per week but the real work is done outside of the gym so  I put a lot of my energy in to customizing a diet for you and educating you to create your own diet and training programs in the future. I charge only for the meeting time in the gym but I will be your trainer 24/7 and do whatever it takes to get you to your goal.  I look forward to meeting you.
