Joe, You are so great, I love the lectures especially with Rob , with my age in the late forties, I am sure I can get some elders to train with me now I understand the theory of proper application, Mike Sable is great, I cannot believe I was training my clients wrong all these years and nobody noticed. Now when I am at the gym, I look at everybody and I wonder where they got certified from, so sad. But that is OK for me because all their clients will end up my clients soon. I promise. You and your team are the best.

Jackeline P.

Dear Joe and Mike, I am so grateful for your presentations. I was not even remotely bored the 2nd time through. I keep getting new ideas in class

Matt Garcia

Hi Joe, hope all has been well. I just wanted to give you an update. I’ve had an amazing journey since I saw you last. I’ve utilized the tools PROPTA has taught me. I’m approaching my second competition. I moved back down to the valley, got a PT job at Equinox, and doing private training. The picture on the left was a few weeks before we met, the middle picture is right before my first competition and the right picture is two days ago.

Thank you for your Knowledge

Able L.

Thanks Joe! It was very helpful talking with you the other day. The woman I was telling you about is seriously thinking twice about the gastric bypass surgery. I am really grateful that I have found PROPTA. I thank you, Mike and everyone that has put time in to make this academy a class act. I look forward to Saturday, as I know that I will be learning so much more. Thanks again!

Martha Garcia- Public Health Administration

Joe, I have been wanting to tell you that I never dreamed to be sitting down with the PROS and exchanging words, especially about a subject that I like, for once in my life, being at the academy, I felt so good, not only did I learn so much more than I have ever learned from other certifications, but I had a lot of fun learning. Especially when it got to the practical application, you guys know what you are doing. No one taught this before like you do. I do have other certifications under my belt and they are going to end up in the garbage, what a waist of money and time, I cannot wait to see you again next Saturday, I am so excited. Please tell Mike Sable that we love his lecture. I know this is for six weeks but I wish I can come to the academy every week, it is so great.
