I have been training with Karim once or twice a week since August, 2004. Karim has an incredible understanding of the interplay between the mental, bio-mechanical, and neuro-muscular components of the body. He has taught me that balance and flexibility are key requirements to building strength and achieving overall fitness. Karim's attention to positioning and form is outstanding --I feel like I am the only person in the room when we train. He pushes me to my limits and I know I am stronger and fitter with every session. When I got married last June, Karim was my rock. His skills as a trainer and his encouragement as a friend helped put me in the best shape for that walk down the aisle! Thanks Karim!
I was anxious to get back into my exercise program after the birth of my daughter on December 1, 2005. I have always worked out with a trainer while I was living in my home town of Santos, Brazil. I looked into finding a trainer when I moved to the DC area last summer and joined Sports Club/LA.. Karim has been an excellent teacher. His knowledge and enthusiasm are unsurpassed.

I have been training
with Karim over the past two years, and have improved significantly in my
conditioning, athletic performance and knowledge of my body. Karim is a
very special trainer, and in my opinion, one of the best. The first thing
that Karim asked was for me to define my goals. Karim works to define
training and performance goals that are as specific as possible so that he
can develop a program that is not only tailored to a client's body and
ability, but also designed to provide ways to measure progress. He also provides good information about how nutrition will
factor into achieving training and performance goals.
3 years ago, I thought I
was at the pinnacle of my athletic career when
I suffered a torn ACL and MCL as well as two meniscal tears. After a
series of surgeries my competitive spirit was burned out and I never
There's an Eastern saying: "The teacher and the taught together create the teaching". Together Karim and I created a customized program to meet my needs and accomplish my goals. This has been and continues to be a life altering experience. Thanks Karim
Karimís other clients proudly show the visually pleasing physical results of having Karim as your trainer. I too could show my ďchiseledĒ body. Instead, I decided to present this photograph, which I believe, represents the positive effects of the total training package Karim designed for me. First, Karim rehabilitated what had been a chronically painful right shoulder and elbow. I became pain free for the first time in years. Next, Karim utilized an array of exercises to increase my flexibility and strength. When I climbed hundreds of steps at Angor Wat, the famous Buddhist temple in Cambodia (only a few of which are pictured), I knew I would have the energy, flexibility and strength to accomplish the goal. On the other hand, other people who were younger than I, had great difficulty or could not complete the trip to the top. Karim has taught me that physical fitness results in more than bench pressing your weight Ė it gives you the confidence to know that your body is capable of performing optimally at any age. My relationship with Karim is beyond that of a trainer; he has become my counselor

As a guy who has spent
most of his youth playing team sports hiring a personal trainer for me was
a way to have company while I would be forced to do an otherwise boring
group of exercises. When I say i've hired trainers, there have been at

white, some muscle bound, and some thin.
