Highly individualized training
“I used to beat myself up five days a week and felt like a failure if I didn’t sweat buckets and get sore, despite not touching anything heavier than 12-pounds and rarely seeing change. Sam corrected 25 years of bad habits, I feel safe pushing myself, I’ve made great gains, and I use the 22-pound weights.”

Workouts that make your body work better.
Strength & conditioning
Lots of things work. This is how I bring it all together to find what works for you.
My name is Sam Abrams. I am a trainer in Palo Alto, California.
Since 2005 I’ve trained athletes, kids, and grandparents to improve performance, overcome injury histories, and change body composition.
I first became interested in the gym as a high school soccer player. I desperately hoped that lifting weights would transform me into an elite athlete. Alas, it did not–but I learned a lot about how the body works anyway. After college, my struggles to fully recover from sports injuries inspired me to further study human movement.
Before training full time, I was a national security analyst in Washington, DC. I studied international relations as an undergraduate at Tufts and as a graduate student at Johns Hopkins.
