Dear frustrated fitness friend –
Are you discouraged with the slow progress you’re seeing from your current workout program?
Is lack of motivation holding you back from reaching your fitness goals?
Are you struggling to find a diet that actually works?
My name is Forest Vance. I own a personal training studio in the Land Park area of Sacramento, CA (we’re on the corner of 7th and Riverside Blvd).
I’m writing this to you today because I want you to know that there is a simple solution to your fitness frustrations! But more on that later …
Not too long ago, I was in your shoes myself –
The picture up top is of me shortly after my football career ended. I was tipping the scales at a whopping 310 pounds 🙁 I had, quite simply, let my weight get out of control.
Thing was, I knew how to train like an athlete, to get into football shape – but I had no idea how to train ‘regular folks’ (which now was me 🙂 ) for weight loss and general health! I spent hundreds of hours studying – and hundreds more testing various methods on myself – to figure out the best, most effective, and most time efficient methods to lose weight, trim my midsection, and take the ‘pain’ out of dieting.
I ended up losing 64 pounds over the next 7 months – and this experience ‘kick started’ my personal training career.
I’ve now got nearly a decade of experience in the fitness industry, multiple nationally accredited personal training certifications, and a Master’s Degree in Human Movement. Most importantly, I’ve helped hundreds of training clients just like you lose weight, strip belly fat, and learn to eat correctly.
All of my Sacramento personal training programs feature:

Now, I have several different program options depending on what you’re looking for, including both one on one and group training … if you’d like more details about any of my programs, I’d love to chat for a few minutes with you over the phone to get a little better idea of exactly what your goals are. At that point, I can better explain the different program options I offer and set up a free trial session if you’re interested.
“Growing up I never thought I’d get into shape. My defeatist attitude combined with sheer laziness made me pack on the pounds over the years. With my 30th birthday approaching I decided to make a change – and I’m so glad that I did! I changed my diet and lost a bit of weight and then I discovered Forest’s studio.
I’ve been training with him for a year and I’ve lost 60 pounds, dropped my body fat percentage from 30% to 14% and have changed my life forever. He is attentive, supportive, tough enough and doesn’t let me get away with bad form! What I love about working out is how it has impacted my everyday life. Not only is my fitness level drastically here, I am so energetic, vibrant, STRONG and happy. If you have ever thought that you were the type of person who couldn’t get into shape, call Forest now!”

“Prior to meeting Forest and using his training system, I did mostly your typical ‘bodypart split’ – type of workout – I devoted one day per week to work my chest, a day to work my legs, etc. In the past, I never had any real specific direction or plan for my workouts – I just sort of showed up. Not surprisingly, I never really got the results I was looking for.
These new workouts are like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I’m able to work my entire body in an amazingly short amount of time. I’m very happy with the progress that Denise and I have made so far.”

“I actually didn’t see results on the scale as quickly as I expected to in the beginning, and in the past would’ve given up too easily. I knew how to eat healthy so I thought I was fine and I can be a bit hard headed sometimes … however, with Forest’s suggestions, I was finally able to nail down my diet, and when I did, everything started coming together and I got the results I was looking for.
The thing I enjoy most about these workouts is the amount of variety involved. The exercises, amount of sets and reps, and weight I use are constantly changing so I never get bored. Also, the results I’m getting now are as good or better than when I was working out two hours a day, six days per week. These workouts never take longer than 45 minutes. Thanks Forest!”
“From late September 2008 to the middle of February 2009 I lost 68 pounds. I have had over 15 people not know it was me they were talking to recently. I think that says a lot. This has been the best thing for my health and happiness. I decided to stop the excuses and start caring. Let today be the day you care enough. Just do it!”
I used to always go to the gym and use machines, but would always hurt myself … and the worst was when I would do squats in that machine where you add weight – I would always hurt my knee! So I quit going and gave up.
I have never had that problem with kettlebells … with kettlebells I can do squats and swings and it strengthens my legs and I don’t have problems with my knees.

In March of 2010 I started group and 1 on 1 training with Forest. Six months later I feel better and stronger than I have ever felt, and ever dreamed was possible. The transformation my body has undergone is amazing.
People regularly ask me about shoulder injury and how devastating the experience must have been for my career, my body, and overall mental health. Six months ago I would have 100% agreed, not being able to see much of a silver lining. Now the way I look at it, is that if I hadn’t hurt myself, it is very likely I would not have gone to Anytime Fitness and met Forest. One of the worst times in my life brought me to the happiest, healthiest, and strongest I have ever been!! Thanks Forest!!”
I decided to start training at the Forest Vance Training Center because I was unsuccessful with my own efforts at losing weight and getting into better shape. I had always been overweight. Even with a very physically demanding job and my own workout program I was still maintaining a body weight around 255 pounds. This was due to poor diet, eating at the wrong times, skipping meals and inconsistency with my exercise. I needed the help of a professional who could guide me to a healthy and appropriate training program and diet. I also needed an extra boost to keep me motivated and consistent with my exercise, an added bonus of the boot camp group style workout.
I have been training under Forest’s guidance for about three months. I do three FVT Boot Camp sessions per week supplemented with cardio and light weight training at home about four times a week. I have followed Forest’s easy to follow guide to healthy eating by consuming only lean proteins, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates from the provided sample list and of course proper hydration. I still have cheat meals and enjoy the foods I love, just in moderation.
In the three months I have been training under Forest’s guidance I have lost 38 pounds. I have reduced my measurements by a full pant and shirt size. I am lighter, faster, stronger and have more endurance since beginning my training at FVT. I can finally do an unassisted pull-up and I recently ran eleven miles at a 12 minute mile pace. I am in the best shape of my life and am doing things I never thought I could do, thanks to Forest’s expert guidance.
