Joey Riso - (760) 898-2978
Our clients have ranged in age from 18 to mid-80's. They have come to us with a variety of needs and goals, and some with a variety of limitations. We are pleased to present the comments of a few of them for your consideration.
Try - fail. Try - fail. That was my track record before I went to Prime Fitness. My experience with them has been incredible. My trainer focuses on me to ensure that each repetition of an exercise consists of proper form and appropriate weight. I've been with Prime Fitness for over a year and love the results.
Funny how, when a student is ready, the teacher appears. I was working out for over 21 years when all my cumulative knowledge and experience did not prepare me for the slow decline of aging as I approached my mid-forties. Nothing was working, everything, including my body, falling apart, and the stress at work was overwhelming. I heard about Joey and his partner Dave beforehand and reached out for their guidance and expertise. I am happy to report that in less than six months working with them, my body has undergone a total change for the better. Concurrently, I am able to handle even more increasing loads at work. Most importantly, my outlook on life has improved tremendously. All this, with less time and effort at the gym! People want to know what I am doing differently (especially as they see me carrying my Prime Fitness logbook around). A friend I could always count on for honesty remarked: "for a few years there you were really getting seedier and seedier. Now, I don't recall seeing you in better shape!" My abs are back and more than I had before! Thanks Joey and Dave!
I can't sing enough praises about Joey at Prime Fitness for the changes he has helped me make to both my body and my ego. As a man of "maturity" I had given up on having a body that I would actually be proud of when I looked in the mirror. I am now in better shape than I was in my younger years and the entire process of getting here was both very pleasant and very productive. Joey has the ability to tailor workout programs for any age group. What a great journey it has been with Joey as my trainer.
By the time I reached my late forties I finally decided to pursue a long ignored goal of achieving a more muscular body. I figured a personal trainer would help set me out on in the right direction. That’s when I met Dave and Joey; eventually training with Dave for over a year and a half. My program of instruction on weight training and nutrition helped me make the transformation I desired. The Prime Fitness team designed my program based on my specific goal: more lean muscle. With a focus on proper form, specific sets and reps, and adequate recovery I’ve been able to work towards putting on more muscle and keeping free of injuries. I really get a lot out of an intense, focused workout, and working with Dave provided this while keeping it fun as well. I thank these guys for their part in getting me into the best shape of my life.
Joey and Dave have been invaluable in reaching my fitness goals. Their methodical, scientific approach to fitness is exemplary. Their dedication to fitness is such an inspiration. In my first four months of training with Joey, I was able to drop 25 pounds and 8 percentage points of body fat — something I have struggled with all of my life. I am 41 years old and finally understand how my body responds to weight training and nutrition better than I have in my prior 15 years in the gym. I can't thank them enough for their expertise and encouragement!.
Prime Fitness is a team of fitness professionals who evaluate fitness, provide exercise prescriptions, make general nutritional suggestions, teach exercise technique, provide general health information, and make referrals to qualified health professionals where required. Where "personal trainers" may conduct clients through exercise sessions, Prime Fitness’s team of nationally certified fitness instructors teach our clients how to manage their own fitness through a combination of attention to nutrition, proper exercise, good lifestyle choices, and, where necessary, the intervention of qualified medical professionals.
Prime Fitness performs body fat analyses, and provides nutritional counseling for those clients who, despite exercise, find it difficult for them to achieve their personal fitness goals. If you've tried working with a personal trainer with limited success, or after working with one found that the results were not lasting, we urge you to try the Prime Fitness approach.

Knowing your body fat percentage is a powerful piece of information. It can be used to judge overall health, adjust your caloric intake, and help you establish reasonable fat loss targets.
Your maximum heart rate is an important piece of information. In order to train correctly, getting enough stimulation to provide a benefit without working so hard as to burn off excessive muscle, you need to work within a certain percentage range of your maximum heart rate.
When you know what your target weight is, you can estimate the time it will take to lose your excess body fat safely and without compromising your lean mass.

I have a medical condition. Can you still help me?
Generally, the answer is an emphatic "yes"! Prime Fitness will, with your consent, undertake a health screening and evaluation. Medical conditions such as diabetes, hypoglycemia, high blood pressure and arthritis all require application of special knowledge and a clearance from your personal physician. Prime Fitness coordinates with your health professionals to make sure that you receive appropriate, quality training.
I've tried diets and exercise before. They've never worked.
What's different about what you do?
Prime Fitness's trainers teach you the fundamentals of why and how you gain and lose body fat, and why and how you build muscle. While no program can absolutely guarantee success, the body is a biochemical machine. If you give it the right food and exercise it properly, your body will respond in a predictable way. In addition, Prime Fitness works with and can refer you to licensed dietitians, hormone-aware physicians, physical therapists, and even masseurs who can further support your goals.
Is it too late for me? Can I still make meaningful changes at my age?
Studies have shown that people can change their body composition, increase strength and agility, and improve the quality of their lives at any age. From your 30's and 40's to your 70's, 80's and beyond, a program of safe rational exercise geared to your abilities and objectives can make positive changes in your appearance and your life.
It does not matter whether you were once athletic or not, or whether you have medical constraints. When necessary, Prime Fitness's trainers can create safe and effective programs of cardiovascular and resistance training within limits established by your personal physician.
How quickly can I build muscle & lose fat?
The response of an individual to exercise is highly variable. A rule of thumb for experienced bodybuilders is a gain of 10# of lean muscle mass per year. A more typical rate of gain is 6-8# per year. Fat loss is also variable. Some authorities suggest that the safest fat loss programs, which spare lean muscle and target fat, should target a loss of not more than 1% of bodyweight per week.
For example, if you are overweight at 230# and carry 25% body fat, you have a lean mass of 173#. If in a year you have gained 6# of lean muscle and lost 20# of body fat, your new body fat level will be a far healthier 17%, and your appearance will be much trimmer.
Beware of supplements which promise large muscle gains, and diets that promise drastic weight loss. If you gain too rapidly, much of the gain will be fat, and if you starve off fat, you will starve off muscle at the same time!
What if I don't want to be a "bodybuilder" - I just want to be healthy?
Prime Fitness wasn't created to manufacture "bodybuilders" - it was created to help people regain control over their bodies and their lives through attention to exercise and good nutrition. But bodybuilding isn't a dirty word - it just means that you are building a healthy body - a lean, strong and flexible body - that will serve you well. Prime Fitness is here to teach you how to build the body you want, and to help you build it efficiently and safely.
For clients outside of the Palm Springs / Coachella Valley area, Prime Fitness offers the following information and links: The Coachella Valley is an irrigated agricultural and recreational desert valley in southern California, United States (U.S.), east of Los Angeles. The valley extends for approximately 45 miles (72 km) in Riverside County southeast from the San Bernardino Mountains to the saltwater Salton Sea, the largest lake in California. It is approximately 15 miles (24 km) wide along most of its length, bounded on the west by the San Jacinto Mountains and the Santa Rosa Mountains and on the north and east by the Little San Bernardino Mountains.|
The San Andreas Fault crosses the valley from the Chocolate Mountains in the southeast corner and along the centerline of the Little San Bernardinos. The fault is easily visible along its northern length as a strip of greenery against an otherwise bare mountain. The Chocolate Mountains are home to a United States Navy live gunnery range and are mostly off-limits to the public. In comparison to the "Inland Empire" (Riverside-San Bernardino area and the California desert), some people refer to the Coachella Valley as the "Desert Empire". Geographers and geologists sometimes call the area, along with the Imperial Valley to the south, the "Cahuilla Basin" or the "Salton Trough."
Egg whites are a great source of bioavailable protein with only traces of carbs and fat. If you have a local dealer, that's great. But if not, try Egg Whites International.
Egg Whites International ships throughout North America with competitive pricing and fast service. All egg whites arrive frozen solid in a custom foam containrer which can handle even the desert heat of Palm Springs in summer.
