"I started training with Dean at 16 years old with the goal of gaining better conditioning, movement, and strength on the tennis court. I spent over ten years in his gym, always wanting to come back for more. Dean is the most dedicated, committed, and driven person I know. He pushed me when I needing pushing, encouraged me when I needed encouragement, and taught me a number of life lessons along the way. Dean gave me an overall appreciation for health and fitness in my everyday life, and for that I am forever grateful!"

05

I really learned the essentials of living a fit life with Dean as my coach.  I was seriously out of shape and not focused on my physical well being.  Dean helped with me with my training as well as recommended diet choices.  I lost more than 35 pounds, began to run and have maintained that condition for the last decade.  He is knowledgeable and motivational."

"Dean Costales was the personal trainer for my family for a period of several years. He was a tremendous motivator, a man of scruples and a tremendous communicator. We learned a lot about health, diet, mental and physical discipline and we have followed his good advice on all of these issues to this day. He has been a very positive influence in our family and I recommend him to new clients without reservation."
