Client Love


I’ve trained with Shirin for seven years, and it’s always functional, fun and full of laughter; a lot of thought and love goes into our sessions. Shirin’s a passionate trainer, always expanding her knowledge to best serve clients, which she does with kindness and class.

I have been working with Shirin for the past six months. I decided to choose Shirin as my trainer because of her dedicated interest in personal training and the positive feedback I heard from previous clients. Shirin is very driven, both mentally and physically, resulting in a committed attitude towards training her clients. She is always very engaged and attentive in sessions. I truly enjoyed my time working with Shirin and saw great improvements in my technique and strength. She is a very capable individual whose years of experience in the gym as an athlete and as coach adds to her success as a personal trainer. Shirin can create individualized workout programs for every session and will use a wide variety of exercises. She will mentally challenge her clients and push them to their limits. I found that when I was working with Shirin, I did not have to worry about my programs in the gym, as I knew she would provide me with a difficult yet effective workouts each and everyday. I have worked with numerous personal trainers in Vancouver; Shirin is one of the few who provides a first-class level of training. Overall, I would recommend Shirin to anyone whether they’re just learning about fitness or if they’re a serious athlete.

Having had a very bad experience with another personal trainer in the past, where the injury from the session put me out of playing sports for a year, I was apprehensive about signing up with another Fitness / personal trainer. But Shirin has completely earned my trust over the last year and I am back playing high level tennis and enjoying the many other sports I play.

Shirin uses a holistic approach, incorporating functional exercises, flexibility, strength, posture, balance, endurance along with promoting supportive food strategies. One of Shirin’s strengths, as I have come to realize, is of most important – she ensures I am doing the moves correctly and reinforces how it will benefit me. Shirin is client centered, extremely knowledgeable in all areas of fitness, from nutrition to rehabilitation, and very results driven. This can be seen by Shirin’s detailed records of my progress and this helps me get through any plateaus I hit and set new goals together.

Shirin’s perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs & challenging yet achievable goal setting along with her professionalism, provides the perfect scenario for success and sets foundations for a new healthier lifestyle!

I make sure of my financial future and manage and watch it carefully but now it is my decision to invest in my health and well-being. Personal training with Shirin is one of the best investments I have ever made because it never stops producing positive results!

In a short time, Shirin retrained my attitude while at the same time retraining my body. As important as a financial advisor for your future so is a personal trainer. Shirin Ramezankhani is the best choice for your future well-being.

I’ve been working with Shirin for a year now after deciding to get my health back on track and invest in my fitness. Shirin takes an active interest in helping me to achieve my goals and pushes me to achieve more every session, while tailoring each workout to my capabilities. Not only is she professional and thorough, but her awesome personality inspires accomplishments at every meeting. She is great to work with while ensuring that I am challenged to improve.

I have been training with Shirin since June 2016. I believe making a commitment to work with Shirin has been one of my best decisions in 2016. Shirin is professional, kind and passionate about her work. She tailors exercise for me, as a result, my health has been greatly improved since I start training with her.

Shirin has made exercise fun and effective. I have been very impressed by her passion to help clients, her knowledge, and her ability to connect with her clients.

Shirin is very caring and attentive to what each client needs, what their limits are, and how far she can push them. She encourages and motivates me to do better, and yet she knows how much I am capable of. Shirin deserves the best compliments from me. I plan to be long-term client.

It is with pleasure that I write this testimonial. I was a client of Shirin’s for over a year. In my years of training with personal trainers I have never met anyone as client-focused, knowledgeable, responsible and creative as Shirin. In the time I spent training with Shirin, she guided me through numerous programs and a countless amount of fitness and movement repertoire.

I used to train to train. My attendance in the gym did not have much of a purpose or goal orientation. This stems from my lifelong struggles with over exercise and anorexia. I was not comfortable with change and my body was used to lifting and moving in a static way. Shirin helped open my eyes to what working out should be about. I have been introduced to functional movements, have learned to value form over the number of repetitions and have learned to take my fitness goals outside the gym and be more involved in sports teams and outdoor activities.

My fitness goals have reached a new peak and I truly believe that the changes I have made would not have been possible had Shirin not been my trainer. I feel stronger, less anxious, more independent and most of all I enjoy each session I had at the gym. I never had a personal trainer who has been committed to making my personal fitness goals congruent with my overall health and well-being. Shirin and I had monthly meetings where we reviewed my progress, set new goals and discussed any concerns or questions I may have had. These meetings were the framework for my sessions and I never doubted that each session was planned according to my goals and with extreme care and attention to detail.

When you train with Shirin others notice. Not only does Shirin motivate you to push as hard as you can, to not let fear stand in your way, she supports your every movement and the changes you make are obvious to anyone else around you.

I would not hesitate to refer Shirin to anyone I know who is looking for a personal trainer. Shirin cares about her clients, this is a rare quality. She brings a depth of experience and simply put, Shirin is the best trainer I have ever had and one of the best person’s I have ever met.

At the age of 50 I started working with Shirin as my personal trainer and that turned out to be a life changing decision for me. Shirin is the first personal trainer I’ve ever worked with and I can’t say enough good things about her. Shirin has developed customized training plans to meet my goals and I have made huge progress since we started training together 10 months ago: I have lost 20+ lb, fully recovered my right shoulder that was troubling me for a long time, and was able to drastically improve the condition of both of my injured knees. I look leaner and feel much stronger, and I am able to again enjoy things I like, such as skiing, biking and tennis. Shirin is a dedicated professional who would go above and beyond for her clients to help them achieve their fitness goals. Shirin is always well prepared for training sessions which are quite intense, always challenging, nicely explained and demonstrated, but above all, she is very funny and her sessions are truly enjoyable!
