DAVID L: 6 MONTHS

"Before I met Larry I was physically and emotionally out of shape. He has helped me transfer my body into something I'm proud of. I used to be embarrased to take off my shirt in public and now I have no issues. I had no arms, no chest, no apps at all. I just had huge gut.

Now I have great arms, a chest, ab's and most importantly a whole new self image. When I first began this journey with Larry I was well over 16% body fat. Now I'm down to just under 7%. Not only did he teach me the proper way to lift but, most importantly he taught me the proper way to diet.

He taught me that abs were not made in the gym and they were made in the kitchen. He put me on a nutritional plan that became not just a diet, but a lifestyle for me. Look at my dialogs daily and told me what I needed to do to dial it in. If my weight didn't drop properly he knew exactly what needed to change in my diet. He was able to guide me day in and day out.

He always had time to go over my diet with me. I learned so much about how to properly eat in order to change one's physique as well as get healthy. In fact he taught me so well that I passed on the same dieting plan to a few of my family members. One of them, my cousin, was quite a bit overweight.

Using the same plan Larry taught me I was able to guide my cousin in to losing over 65 pounds. Larry has changed my life both physically as well as emotionally. Thank you very much for all you've done Larry!"

JULIE: 8 WEEKS

149 lbs down to 119 lbs and bodyfat 15.5% to 8

"Over the years, I've tried a lot of different activities in the name of health and challenging myself (including becoming a vegan for 2 years and running a marathon), but I secretly always hoped it would give me that cover of Runners World physique. It didn't! Eventually, I had accepted that no matter how hard I worked, my body was naturally just oddly shaped and that I was fit and that's just good enough considering I was still in much better shape than most of the people I knew.

I honestly was blown away by the results that I saw in just the first 3 weeks of training with Larry! In addition to helping me get rid of my butt, Larry has been helping me correct posture issues that I wasn't even aware of eliminating knee pain I had occasionally gotten from running for the past 4 years.

He has a very in-depth knowledge of kinesiology and nutrition and has explained away many of the myths from those bizarre fad diets and exercise routines we try to ignore but that somehow get into our heads anyway. Probably the most valuable thing I've learned from Larry and Jason is that staying in great shape isn't nearly as time consuming as I had imagined it would be. I only wish I'd known this 10 years ago when I was working so hard for half of the results."

He knows how to increase your strength, speed your metabolism, help you effectively lose body fat, and give you life long habits which will enable you to maintain your results.

Working with Larry has changed my life. He has made me laugh, he has listened to me whine, but he always brings me back to task.

He is able to tell me exactly where I should feel each exercise, allowing me to know whether I’m doing it correctly. His feedback gives each of my work-outs optimum efficiency. I have obtained incredible results, and learned a lot in a short time. Larry is very professional. I never feel intimidated or embarrassed even if I can’t do something right away.

"I highly reccomend Larry Cook as a personal trainer. I'm a professional dancer, choreographer and fitness instructor and wanted to tone my body up and loose fat. I wanted a new image and wanted to increase my chances of getting callbacks at auditions.

I have a very busy schedule and I'm tired the majority of the time. Therefore, I knew I wouldn't go to the gym and eat right if I didn't have someone who would hold me accountable for my eating habits and push me to workout (especially when I'd rather sleep in on an early morning!).

Thus,  with this motivation in mind I started my search for a personal trainer. My first step in finding a personal trainer was "googling," personal trainers in Woodland Hills. Lo be hold he came up highly reccomended.

I called him, had a meeting, started his program and lost 39 pounds with his guidance and encouragement. It was an amazing experience and helped me not just loose weight but also learn about nutrition.

It's been a lifestyle change and I've been able to continue with the structure he introduced me to in regards to cardio, weight lifting and healthy eating. It's been a great journey and I reccomend him to anyone who has similar fitness goals or works in the arts!"

"Larry was my personal trainer from about September 2010 to July 2011. It might be cliché but that period of my life was when my body went through its most positive change. Before I met Larry, I had a relatively healthy lifestyle but after meeting Larry I realized that I wasn't getting the full benefit from my workouts and diet.

Larry helped me in both my diet and exercise. In the gym, Larry provided a dynamic workout routine that would push my limits. He would also structure my diet so that it would complement the gym work out. He told me the appropriate amount of carbs, fat, and protein needed to either gain or lose weight and he kept me on track since I had to send him a daily log of what I ate.  He is also very knowledgeable on the supplements that are out there and his recommendations on which ones I needed.

On a more logistical point, he usually schedules his clients two at a time. He will usually switch back-and-forth between the two clients but it works out perfectly since obviously you take rest between sets. The sessions last an hour but he always makes sure that he is finished with the client before he calls the session over thus he'll take any additional time needed to make sure you got your full work out. Hopefully once I'm done with school I can go back to training with Larry."

"Larry Cook is a terrific trainer.  He has the ability to ask the right questions in order to glean exactly what I needed in a training session.  He is an expert in kinesiology, anatomy, and physiology along with different training methodologies.  Larry comes to each training session with a personalized program just for me, that being said he can also modify that session if I am injured.

"Larry Cook is a terrific trainer.  He has the ability to ask the right questions in order to glean exactly what I needed in a training session.  He is an expert in kinesiology, anatomy, and physiology along with different training methodologies.  Larry comes to each training session with a personalized program just for me, that being said he can also modify that session if I am injured.

RAIN: 2 MONTHS

"I have worked with a number of trainers over the years so I have a good basis for comparison. I was happy with my other trainers at the time but Larry has proven to be the best. He has an excellent knowledge of physiology, and a keen awareness of how each exercise looks when done properly. He explains each exercise in simple terms that I understand easily.

He is able to tell me exactly where I should feel each exercise, allowing me to know whether I'm doing it correctly. His feedback gives each of my work-outs optimum efficiency. I have obtained incredible results, and learned a lot in a short time. Larry is very professional. I never feel intimidated or embarrassed even if I can't do something right away. He always puts me at ease, interjecting encouragement and humor. He makes the work-outs as much fun as they are effective."

about the trainer

_MG_7279a_by_KenSergi,_Larry_Cook

Larry Cook is currently certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, and has certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. In his career, Larry has competed in multiple body building contests, and has been a personal trainer for men and women, teenagers and seniors alike, for over 15 years.

Upon attending Orange Coast College to study Exercise Physiology and Exercise Science, Larry quickly earned a reputation not only as a knowledgable trainer, but also one who truly cared about his clients. A fitness aficionado.

“I discovered my passion for helping people when I was 21 years old” Larry states. “I want to be known as someone who changes a person’s life by first teaching them how to have a healthy relationship with their new body through training and nutrition. I understand there is an emotional side a person experiences when trying to lose weight and transform their body, and it’s important to me they know I support them physically and mentally every step of the way on their journey. My customers can expect a great deal of care, thought, and thorough customer service both inside and outside of the gym because I know its paramount to their success.”

WHY TRIANGLE THEORY TRAINING?

When Larry was competing in body building contests, he would often hear people say that getting “ripped” or in optimal shape was beyond their reach. Committing to a very strict diet while training multiple hours every day for three months at a time wasn’t something they could embrace.

While it’s true Larry trained very hard for bodybuilding events, he realized he himself couldn’t train that way all the time and achieve similar results. Larry knows a person’s body changes with age. In order for them to feel the best they could both mentally and physically, a new workout “system” needed to be introduced. Larry adapted a new mantra to his physical fitness philosophy: “Train smart first, train hard second.” After all, if a person sees diminishing returns after working out for a long period of time he or she is likely to quit due to emotional distress from doubt or boredom. So Larry created the Triangle Theory Training regimen. A system that incorporates three essential elements to help shape and maintain lasting changes to one’s body.

Intensity. Variety. Consistency.

Personal trainers may focus on only one of these elements in order to achieve a “quick fix” result with their client. But over time, the mind and body disengages from such a regimen and there is a lack of growth, physically and mentally. However, Larry treats each element with equal importance. Like the sides of an equilateral triangle, one cannot exist without the other or the structure collapses. With Larry Cook’s Triangle Theory Training a person will achieve the body, lifestyle and wellness they envision for themselves. Larry will guide each client through a balanced, comprehensive regimen, combining both a workout and a nutrition plan that caters to their needs. By implementing the essential elements of intensity, variety and consistency each person will have the tools they’ll need to overcome road blocks to progress and achieve personal success. Schedule and in-person meeting or phone conference with Larry today to begin your journey towards a better and brighter you.

Testimonials

Larry is great. He works with you so your goals are manageable and you see results. He's not the type of trainer that barks orders at you, but he also not the type that goes easy on you. It's a good combination and I highly recommend him!
