Becoming the Change
“It’s important to surround yourself with a team that supports you, motivates you and never lets you fail. When I set the goal of becoming an Ironman I turned to Matt to get me in physical and mental shape to be able to accomplish this goal, and I did. His tenacious high intensity workouts blow away any other workout I have ever done. Even more than the physical workouts, he creates a mental toughness and motivates you to be healthy away from the gym. If you want to step up your performance or take the first step in creating a healthy lifestyle, Matt Paz will get you there. ” – Mike T.
“I started training with Matt a few months after having ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair surgery on my knee. After not being able to workout for several months after surgery I began training with Matt for my goals of losing weight, building strength back in my leg and testing for the L.A. County Sheriffs Department. Matt always pushed me in every workout and soon enough I was stronger and faster then I was even before knee surgery. Working out with Matt I was able to lose 30 lbs and successfully passed the physical agility test for the LASD. Matt has been an excellent trainer and great inspiration. He has a great passion for what he does and truly cares about helping you succeed in your goals.”

“West Grove Fitness is amazing! I love the workouts, trainers, equipment, energy, all of it. I knew the first class I went to would be tough because I hadn’t worked out like that in a while but the class was awesome. Matt, Vinnie, and Lexi do a great job with motivating, keeping the flow, and pushing your limits without intimidating you. The class is a little different each time which helps keep it interesting and fun. I am excited to get up in the morning and go workout (can’t believe I just said that). My mindset has already changed so much about working out and I’m excited to see what I can accomplish.
My goals for this new journey are to lose some weight, gain some muscle, and push myself. I already feel better and have already started challenging my body. I love when we have leader boards! For anyone wanting to try something new I encourage you to try WGF! The energy is great and you won’t be disappointed.”

“I thought something was missing in my life when I started weightlifting. Ran a lot and lifted weights, competed in powerlifting. When I turned 50, my body couldn’t handle the heavy weights anymore. A co-worker introduced me to Bootcamp fitness. What a world of difference for a cripple like me with arthritis-right shoulder and left knee. I’m getting stronger again. I love the functional exercises I do in WGF. The constant changes exercises allows my body to improve without drugs/medication for my ailments. Exercise is making me thrive. If your kind of fitness were available in the 70’s, I would’ve preferred it instead of heavy lifting.”
