Success Stories

Rocky changed my life!!!

“Rocky has been my personal trainer for the past 8 months, and I also regularly attend her TRX class at Flying Yoga.  I love Rocky’s dedication, enthusiasm, and ability to produce results quickly!  I am in the absolute best shape of my life right now, and I have Rocky to thank for it.  She not only helps you achieve results in the gym, but she also helps you change your whole lifestyle.  My eating and drinking habits have become much healthier because of Rocky’s guidance.  I lost weight and toned my muscles VERY quickly!

Rocky is an amazing personal trainer, but she also teaches the best workout class I have ever attended.  Her TRX class at Flying Yoga is insane!  It is by far the most efficient hour-long workout you can find.  It combines both strength training and cardio, plus it is so much FUN.  Don’t be intimidated if you’ve never tried TRX before – Rocky is great at giving new students guidance and hands-on training. “

Once you start working with Rocky you’ll never want to stop!

I used to live across the street from Inside/Outside fitness in Oakland where I would work out occasionally. My wife gave me a gift certificate for 3 personal training sessions with Rocky for my birthday in September.

I was skeptical at first, having never worked with a personal trainer before. Well that initial skepticism was very short-lived.  Here I am 4 months later a regular client of Rocky’s, almost 25 lbs lighter, much stronger and feeling great.

Rocky has a contagious, fun, motivating attitude and I find I spend my week looking forward to our training sessions. She certainly knows what she’s doing and is constantly coming up with new workouts to keep things interesting and challenging for me. I certainly recommend her.

Rocky is amazing!!!! 

“Over the years I have worked with many personal trainers and Rocky is by far the BEST I have worked with!  She is motivating, fun and knows how to push you to the max while still loving her!

I first came across Rocky in her TRX class at Flying Yoga, which she teaches Mon, Wed and Fri from 12pm to 1pm.  After getting great results in the class I decided I wanted some personal attention to zone in on the areas I’m still working on, like a 4-pack!  

Since starting my training with her I am more tone, I hit my idea weight and I am in the size zero dress that has been in my closet for the past 5 years, waiting to be worn!”

I am recommending her to anyone who wants to not only LOOK good, but feel Amazing!!!



“I’ve moved out of Oakland five years ago after spending practically my entire lifetime there.  (Minus a few stints in San Francisco and LA)  I do visit there on a regular basis.  When I was assigned there every Tuesdays for work, I was introduced to Inside/Outside Fitness in order to keep my workout regimen consistent. Though I no longer worked for that company that sent me out to Oakland on Tuesdays, I continue coming to Oakland on Tuesdays.”


“Rocky’s boot camp class.  She takes the time to get to know her students well enough to know their limits so she can cater each exercise  to challenge them.  She is also mindful of their physical limitations such as injuries and health issues so that there’s minimal risks from injuries.  Not only are her workouts challenging, they’re fun to do.  Also her classes are small with less than 8 people per class so there’s individualized attention. “ 

Honestly, I didn’t really want to make this review as I really like the class to remain small.  Selfish me.

“I’ve worked with personal trainers in the past and do weight training on my own but working with Rocky was a breath of fresh air. She taught me how to add more variety to my routines and we also did a bit of TRX work and I loved it! After our workouts, my body was sore in places I had never been sore before.  After three weeks of training with her 2-3 times per week, plus my cardio on the side and clean eating, all of my work clothes was baggy on me…felt good 🙂

Rocky’s positive attitude, energy and persona push you to try your hardest and kick your own a$$! Loved every session with Rocky! I would recommend her to anybody, whether your a trained athlete or a newbie.”



Rocky is an inspiration.

“I regularly attend her TRX/ boot camp class at Inside Outside Fitness & look forward to the class. She inspires us to go to our limits and I always know I will receive a great workout, feeling stronger and uplifted.

One unique quality Rocky has is the ability to make you feel like you are receiving a personal lesson, even when there are 7 people in the class; she pays attention to your form and keeps cheering you on till the very end. She is one of the few teachers that I will arrange my schedule around so as to not miss her class if possible.”



“Rocky helps people discover hidden treasures from within. Revealing their own unique gifts, and unleashing their unlimited potential.” 



Rocky rocks!  

“In the past year and a half, Rocky has created an evolving fitness routine that works for and challenges me. Having worked with three other personal trainers I can say that Rocky has great depth and range in her training skills and knowledge of healthy fitness. She’s positive and present–fun to be around.

As a life coach Rocky has helped me to navigate the early days of my recent retirement. And there’s massage magic in her hands–pain gone!

Highly recommended.”

“I knew I needed to make changes in my life in a serious way starting with my physical health. I can’t say just how fortunate I am to have found Rocky. I’ve been training with her for a little over a month now and am beyond pleased with the progress I’m making. Seriously, I’m down two dress sizes. This is not an exaggeration by any means. Yes, it takes work and dedication, but having Rocky there to help guide me has been inspirational.

Rocky is sincere and passionate about what she does and pushes me to reach goals I thought impossible for far too long.

An added bonus, her massage sessions are fantastic. It’s not often I do this, but I highly recommend her!!”



“Rocky’s extensive knowledge of training the physical body and its connection with the mind allows her to develop programs for you that will allow you to successfully meet your training goals, what ever they are.  Rocky’s systems of developing personalized workouts are tailored for the unique needs of your body.  Don’t believe me?  Try a couple of workouts with her and you will experience a noticeable difference in your strength and outlook on training right away, just as I did.  She’s extremely knowledgeable as well as inspirational, and a joy to work with.  That is a winning combination in my view.”

Rock on!

“Rocky is the most supportive, flexible, good natured and inspirational trainer that I have had the pleasure to work with…. And it is making a HUGE difference in my life.  Through her expertise and guidance I have been able to drop from a size 18 to a 10 for the first time in my adult life!  Plus I have lost almost forty lbs so far… a goal that I thought I would never achieve.

I couldn’t have asked or prayed for a better trainer… because she not only pushes me to go beyond my comfort zone but she continues to keep me accountable and remains supportive of all my goals…    Through this support I know that I will reach my lifelong goals and continue to discover the true “ME” that has been lost for so many years.”

Thank you  Rocky… You are the best!

“I have known Rocky since 2005 when she became my personal Trainer at Gold’s Gym in Santa Cruz.  She was the first trainer that I ever had that actually listened to my needs and paid attention to my body’s abilities.  I ended my sessions tired and sore, but never hurt.  She developed great routines for me, and made sure my time at the gym was more than just a chore.

Outside the gym as a life coach, Rocky has truly helped me get my life moving in forward, positive direction.  On top of keeping me on track with my fitness goals, Rocky acts like my own personal cheer leader.  She has helped me clarify my goals, and gives me the support to believe in myself.”
