Client Success Stories & Testimonials
Tafiq makes it pleasurable to show up every morning and bring your "A" game to his Bootcamp class, because he brings his best, each day. He has new and interesting routines for us..it is NEVER boring. I would recommend Tafiq's technique and program to anyone who is looking for a body-changing experience.

Tafiq is awesome. I tried his 6 week bootcamp class on a whim in January. 9 months later, I'm still doing it, signing up for course after course because he is such a great teacher. His unique combination of strength, cardio and flexibility training is unequaled in Los Angeles. I feel strong, lean, and more energized than ever, this despite having to wake up at 5:30 in the morning on a daily basis.

I have been a student of Tafiq's for over four years and I can personally attest to how my body has transformed under his guidance. He is one of the most knowledgable teachers offering up new and different challenges every day. He somehow manages to have an eagle eye on everyone in a class of over thirty people and will always call you out when you aren't pushing your hardest or your form is incorrect! In his polite way, of course, but it is reassuring to know that he cares about the results of all of his students. I am so excited he finally has a DVD series and online workouts so I can pack him up with me when I travel for work - its much more convenient than stuffing him in my carry-on! :)
I was hooked from the very first class that I took with Tafiq. I don't think I have ever been more challenged! He motivates me and everyone else in class to push our bodies to the limit. No matter how in shape you are, you will still be challenged, guaranteed! I have taken plenty of other classes, but I'm never as satisfied as when I take a class with Tafiq, and that's what keeps me coming back.
I've been working with Tafiq for over 3 months and have seen amazing results in that time. I’ve been exercising consistently for 20 years and have never felt stronger or healthier. Tafiq is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. He makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! He also places a high value on correct form with each exercise. He motivated me to unlock my potential and to push me past my perceived limits to get visible results. I have increased energy, my balance and flexibility have improved and I’m in the best shape of my life! If you are serious about transforming your life and your body, Tafiq will lead you every step of the way.
Before I started working out with Tafiq I had a hard time getting and staying motivated. But Tafiq knows how to motivate even the worst cases.
His classes are intense and exercises challenging. Even by standards of Hollywood – where people are expected to be fitter, slimmer, stronger, better looking than anywhere else.
Still - Every class is filled to the capacity!
People of different level of fitness join, and with his help soon become fitter and stronger.
Tafiq also helps everyone with a personalized meal plan and any other fitness related questions. I am a pescetarian and he created a meal plan taking that into consideration.
Every class is different thus keeping the student interested and challenged. Right when you think you cannot move anymore, Tafiq shows you what your body can do.
