PT CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

“Working with a Personal Trainer is a great help with your exercise program and ensures that you stay focused and disciplined. I have had the experience of working with two of YMCA’s trainers and can truly recommend the program. They have been professional, supportive, and capable of tailoring your workout to your individual needs. They have also been nice and a pleasure to work with.” – Andree M., YMCA Santa Monica member.

Maurkice Palmore, CPT

Maurkice has been a Y member for ten years and has worked in membership here for two. His favorite thing about the Y is getting immersed in different areas while meeting a diverse group of people. He is motivated to train people of all ages, abilities, and lifestyles. Maurkice’s fitness journey started when he discovered the influence that exercise can have on a person, not only physically but mentally. He worked his way into losing over 70 pounds. That journey motivated him to want to help others to better their lifestyle. Maurkice is now certified as a trainer through The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and has a social and behavioral science degree. His primary focus in training is working on muscle imbalances, hypertrophy, and strength development.
