Working with Max over the past year has changed my life and my body. I am a runner, golfer, tennis player and basically a cardio junkie. I have 3 children, and I always believed that the more cardio I did, the thinner I would be. The problem was that I kept getting injured and couldn’t understand why. After another leg injury last spring, I realized that something must be missing in my exercise routine, and I asked a friend to recommend the best personal trainer in the area, and he suggested Peter Max Calder.
Max reviewed my exercise regimen and my diet and informed me in detail what was missing from both. He explained that in order to get the results I want, I would have to add strength training (i.e., weight lifting) and flexibility training (i.e., stretching) as well as make adjustments in my diet. I was skeptical that strength training would make me bulk up and add weight. In fact, the opposite has occurred! Not to mention that now I have no problem replacing a water jug in my office water cooler, which weighs over 40 pounds!
Max has instilled in me the importance of the right combination of strength training, nutrition, stretching and flexibility along with cardio. Max is so knowledgeable about the body and what is required to achieve the results you want. I highly recommend Max to anyone who is serious about improving their fitness and overall health. Thank you Max!!

During my tenure as president of the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, I asked the center’s fitness director to recommend the best personal trainer, and he referred me to Peter Max Calder.
Max is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of fitness (physiology, nutrition, psychology, proper equipment usage, exercise regimes, etc.) and has excellent communication skills to transit this knowledge to his clients. Additionally, Max invests himself on a personal level in his clients’ success – going beyond the compensated session time to follow up on the clients’ performance and making himself available for questions.
Max enhanced the health club environment with his expertise, exuberant personality, responsibility and reliability. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Thank you very much for the course to better health on which you set me several months ago.
I initially called the Jewish Community Center, telling them I was 25 pounds overweight and did not have the energy that I would like. They recommended you. You created an appropriate exercise routine for me, counseled me on diet and recommended specific vitamins. I have kept exercising in the two months since I last saw you and have lost 18 pounds since we began work last summer.
In short, you have helped me change my life, and I am very grateful and happy to recommend you to anyone who is seriously committed to getting his health together.

I cannot recommend Max highly enough. I am an older woman, a licensed California marriage, family and child counselor, and practice body-based psychotherapy. For all of these reasons, I am very interested in the body and the importance of honoring it, both emotionally and physically.
I met Max and started training with him a little more than two years ago. I feel terrific and absolutely do not look my age. Max is very careful in matching the exercises to my age and abilities. He is also constantly updating his knowledge and skills. I shall miss him a great deal.

It is with great regret that I accept your resignation as my personal trainer due to your move back to Philadelphia.
Over the last year and a half, I have enjoyed your tremendous enthusiasm and professionalism during every moment we worked together. You are unique in your ability to communicate; you impart knowledge clearly; you teach with patience; and you are always encouraging. I particularly appreciate your personal approach that allowed us to relate as individuals rather than trainer and trainee alone, for it was during these times I learned you knew from personal experience with it took to take control of your life – whether it be your body or mind.
I was always impressed with the proven experience you had to draw from including other clients, as well as information regarding nutrition, stress management, and overall life-style. I continue to be pleased with the results that came from the program you had-tailored to my physical limitations and preferences. I can say without hesitation that you are a star, the best of the best.

The doctor says my bone density has now stabilized...thanks to you.
I'm getting less migraine headaches...thanks to you.
I can now run up and down staircases all day long without getting winded...thanks to you.
I can carry 4 grocery bags at one time...thanks to you.
But honestly, while all of this is important, what I really love is that I can wear a bikini again with confidence! My abs are tight, my butt is raised and toned, my thighs are cellulite-free and my arms look awesome!
Thanks for giving me back my youth...maybe not chronologically but physically and emotionally.
You’re the best,
Peter Max Calder is one of a kind! Quite simply, the best fitness coach we have ever had. My husband, Ed, started working with PeterMax 10 years ago and since his involvement with Peter he has enjoyed a high level of fitness, without experiencing any injuries. Peter is extremely careful in tailoring exercise programs to ones age and physical capabilities. Very few trainers that we have worked with over the years are able to correctly supervise your exercise program in such a way to keep you totally injury free! When Ed is away from Peter’s care for more than a month he begins to develop various problems and when he finally gets back to see him it’s with braces on his knee, elbow, and back. Within a week, PeterMax has him back in top form and all the braces go back into the closet. It’s uncanny! In short, with his education, knowledge and dedication to detail, Peter has enabled us to reach our fitness goals.
In addition to his professionalism, Peter provides interesting and stimulating conversation and we look forward to the camaraderie as well as the workout.

I have been training with Peter Max for the past 10 years. Initially, I have to admit I was quite apprehensive of the benefits of working with a personal trainer. Well, now 10 years later at age 51, I credit Peter Max with not only a dramatic improvement in my physical strength and agility, but also my mental well being.
Peter Max is far more than a personal trainer. He takes the time to understand the needs of his clients and customizes a program to meet those needs. He is extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of strength and flexibility training as well as the importance of nutrition in your fitness program. Also, his experience and knowledge of therapeutic programs has been invaluable to me in recovering from multiple physical injuries.
If you are serious about your health and well being, there is no one I would recommend more on improving your health than Peter Max.

I highly recommend Peter Max Calder as a personal trainer. We have worked together for over 14 years now, and I can honestly say there is no one more professional and positive than Peter Max. He has boundless energy and is meticulous about every aspect of the workout. He cares deeply about your success and works hard to give the right advice about nutrition, strength training, cardio & stretching. Stretching is the most important part for me. I couldn’t move without Peter’s thorough pre and post session stretching. There is nobody better!
