Started working out at Fitness HI almost 1 month ago and I'm loving it. I've been to a variety of gyms in the past. From 24 hour fitness, Orange theory and CrossFit gyms. Unfortunately as I got older, I noticed more injuries. I took a break from working out for about 8 months to heal and reset. Fast forward to the present day....I was looking to get back into shape but knew I needed a place that would help me get stronger and avoid injury. I'm so happy I found Fitness HI. Ryan Pang, the owner, is awesome. I'm currently enrolled in semi-private training. He targets workout to my personal goals. He also watches me attentively to make sure I'm doing the exercise correctly since I have a tendency to rush/push through exercises I suck at. I've noticed big changes in my strength and endurance since working out with him and it's only been a month. He just moved his gym to a larger space which is great. There are no large weight benches/machines or cardio equipment. He uses simple equipment like sandbags, TRX, kettlebells and medicine balls. Surprisingly, I get a much better, balanced workout with his equipment than I did at other gyms. He and the other members are extremely welcoming. The environment is casual, supportive and encouraging. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.
I was skeptical until I saw the amazing results from friends who attend classes/semi coaching here at FitnessHI.
I decided to give it a try, I lost 15 lbs in 6 weeks under Ryan's guidance of eating the right food and strength/metabolic classes!
I've been a member of well known NYC gyms and never had such impressive results.
Ryan is a knowledgeable and he helps you in attaining your fitness goals. Come join us and see for yourselves!
I can honestly say I am more fit now than I’ve been in decades. I am in my 60’s and basically my main reason when I began, was
that this was going to be my “last hurrah”. I see too many people my age and older stooped over while walking, having to ask other
people to bend over and pick up something off the ground and having extreme difficulty getting up off the floor once down. They are
stiff, have no stamina and one of their greatest fears is losing their balance and falling. I knew I was headed there fast even though
I’m still happily and actively working full time. I have to say I was a bit leery about working out at a gym since I’ve already had
2 hip replacements and had been warned by doctors, not to exceed a certain range of bending. But this is just one of the benefits of
having a program written by a very knowledgeable coach – he takes your physical limitations and weaknesses into account and tailors a
constantly changing program based on that and what you want to achieve. (If you could see me during workouts, I think you’d agree that
a 60-something year old woman commando crawling the length of the gym floor is a pretty awesome, if not humorous sight.) I’ve never
hurt myself because he watches and constantly corrects my posture and moves. I groan when he increases my weights but I’m amazed that
I can actually handle them. I question why I’m doing certain exercises until I realize it’s actually helping me in ways I never
expected. So yes, I highly recommend you check out Fitness HI– don’t ever think it’s too late for you or that you won’t be able to
handle it. There is a routine
that can be tailored for you that will have you slowly but surely, noticing that YOU CAN DO THIS! Just make up your mind and get down
And BTW, the people who work out here are the friendliest and most supportive ever!
My friends were telling me about this gym for months. To be honest I'm not a huge fan of exercising in a gym because I didn't think
I could exercise with my bum ankle. After months of delaying I took the plunge and went for a consultation and I've been hooked ever since.
The workouts are totally awesome, the people are awesome - they're super encouraging and very welcoming when I first started. Ryan designs
his workouts to be challenging and fun so time goes by very quickly. He also has alternatives for all his workouts which was very important
to me plus it makes you feel good about yourself. Exercising at Fitness HI gym has made a huge difference in my yoga practice. I've seen
a big changes in my friends after they took the "jeans challenge" and I can't wait to do the "LBD Challenge". Ryan is an awesome coach
with a wealth of knowledge for exercising and nutrition.
Looking for a gym - try Fitness HI - you will be pleasantly surprised.
I have always been physically active and also followed the same daily exercise routine with weights and cardio machines for many years.
My back would go out on me 2-3 times a year. My back would spasm after sitting a couple of hours at my desk.
I just figured it was the price of getting older. I did not need a trainer --- did not need someone telling me what to do.
Since Ryan has trained me, my back has improved significantly and I feel stronger despite exercising less frequently.
Ryan has definitely helped me. Give him a try.
The D2S Challenge was the best decision I made to lose weight and get healthy. I was really hesitant to begin a low carbohydrate program because I love to eat rice and snack on chips. What I learned on the program was that I was eating a ton of processed carbohydrates loaded with salt. Although it was difficult in the beginning, after about three weeks my body adjusted to less processed carbs. The cravings for chocolate and other sweets (cookies and candy) became more manageable. I learned on the program that I can still eat rice but, only after a workout. It gave me incentive to work out more often. Also, the program allows you to have on average two cheat meals a week. Being able to eat whatever you wanted at times, made the program easier to stay on track. I didn’t feel deprived. On the program, I began eating a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits. I got used to eating proteins in combination with vegetables and fruits. I believe I’m eating healthier. Ryan was very informative, encouraging, and monitored our Facebook food posts. He did a great job of motivating us to meet our goals. The workouts were also geared for getting back into shape. After eight weeks, I lost almost 10 pounds. This has been the only program in recent years that I have been able to lose weight. In addition, I noticed my arms are much more toned. I have a waist again and I’m fitting into all my old clothes. Hooray!!! Since I still want to lose more weight, I have decided to stay on the program until I reach my goal weight. The D2S Challenge really works. I would encourage anyone who has had trouble losing weight to try it.
After surgery and PT for a rotator cuff injury, I was still unable to raise my arm without pain and
stiffness. Ryan worked with me to increase my range of motion as well as strengthen my core to where
I can now lift my arm straight up without pain or difficulty.
Plus the workouts are a lot of fun and never boring.
I originally decided to participate in the drop 2 sizes challenge because I knew my co-worker Jennie Mi was going to do this. I had gained 12 pounds sinceI wasn’t able to do my usual walk/runs, yoga practice or bar pilates because of arthritis pain in my hips. I finally had bilateral hip replacement in May of 2016. The timing of this Loose 2 sizes Jeans challenge was perfect for me as I was planning to get into exercises and this seemed like a good way get back into all my”skinny” clothes in my closet. I know 12 lbs doesn’t seem like much, but when you’re 5’ tall, it seems more like 20 lbs! I really thought I knew a lot about diet but found out I had a lot to learn! This was about eating clean, without added salt, sugar and preservatives. You have to read labels because you cannot trust things on the packaging that say “healthy”, “gluten free”, “organic” to be good for you. There’s still crap in there. The longer the list of ingredients, the more to beware of in packaged food! This whole process has made me more mindful of what I’m eating and even though I can eat what I want now I feel so much better when I eat clean, so I choose to do so. Yes, even during the holidays! After a “cheat” day, I reset, and go back to eating clean and drink lots of water. I think the other telling thing about eating clean is that everyone says that my skin looks great! So, at the end of the day, I lost 8 pounds but more in inches because I can fit clothes that I haven’t worn in years. The best thing is that I know I can keep this up! At 63, I feel so blessed to have this level of energy and feeling the fittest I have ever been in my life! Thank you Ryan Pang and the Fitness HI gang!

Before I joined your gym I would go to Hickam Gym ever other day and work out on the machines. I really did not get any cardio work, which worried me. I guess I felt that I did not get a good work out. Kathy invited us to go to your gym it sounded interesting. I was getting into a rut and I wanted to do something else and get some cardio, I thought, why not! I had not joined another gym in town because the times of the classes were not conducive to my schedule. Am happy that I joined your gym, I feel better, drink more water and I get a good workout in a relatively short period of time! with cardio! I must say that I am eating more healthy now and drink way more water everyday (I actually do not like water) Thank you!
I started going to Fitness HI after surgery on my left knee; which I hurt in a boot camp class. Ryan Pang, the personal
trainer at Fitness HI, worked tirelessly with me restoring strength & mobility to my knee. He helped me get my knee and I back into shape!
In fact, since working out at Fitness HI, I have participated and completed 2 Spartan “Super” Races.
The struggle is real when it comes to balancing a healthy lifestyle with everyday life. I have tried every diet plan, meal replacement program, weight loss product on earth and the true change occurred when I joined Fitness HI. I take advantage of Coach Ryan's weight and metabolic classes and receive his support and expertise on nutrition and supplements. Since joining Fitness HI I have dropped 3 jean sizes and maintained it for the past two years. Members at the gym are supportive and welcoming. The hardest part of healthy body transformation is starting and committing.
Wow, I am really impressed with Fitness HI. The facility is very clean, the environment is welcoming, and our trainer Ryan is excellent! The minute I walk in, I feel motivated to work out and I definitely feel a difference in my body. Ryan knows how to push you to your potential, while reminding you of what he feels is safe and right for your body. The class time is perfect because it fits into my lunch break and it allows me to do what I need to do after work. I haven't found anything like this around town so I am very happy!
I am married and a mother of 3 kids. Since having 3 children, I have been in and out of various gyms, workout routines, and have been on every diet under the sun. I have tried to stay active and not let my weight/health get out of control. It has always been a challenge, especially as I have gotten older. Finding an effective workout is key especially with such a busy schedule. I have been with Fitness HI for almost 2 years now. Although I still have my own personal fitness goals that I will continue to strive for, I probably have more muscle on my body now at 44 than I've ever had. I go to class four times a week, and do strength training (weights) twice a week, and metabolic (high intensity) class twice a week. This combination of classes has been the key factor to my fitness journey this past year. Not only did I drop a couple jeans sizes, but I lost close to 8% body fat over the year.
I love FitnessHI! Ryan is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He guides you every step of the way whether you're new or a veteran of the gym. It's a place where you know you won't hurt yourself because Ryan ensures that your form, equipment weight, and exercise is appropriate for you. Ryan is also constantly learning new things. Staying up to date with new ways to train us.It's never boring in the gym because he changes things up every month. I also really enjoy the other members! We encourage and support each other and best of all, everyone's really nice. Not to mention it's always a blast to go hiking with the gym crew.
My doctors told me that my goal in 2013 should be to lose 30-40lbs so that they can take me off of some of the 20+ prescription pills I've been taking since I had a heart attack 5 years ago. I took a year off from working out and when I wanted to start up again, my co-worker told me to try Fitness HI. I'm about to start month 3, I lost a total of 23lbs and around 6 inches around the waist! My doctors are happy with the lower numbers and I'm looking forward to my next visit to see if we can stop some of the medications.
I can be quite a handful to get to diet and exercise, but Ryan was able to motivate me to want to work hard to get the results I desired. At Fitness HI I learned about the importance of exercising properly and efficiently . I also never felt uncomfortable at the gym because it was encouraging to see people at all fitness levels working out under the same roof. Best of all with my own customized program, I only had to work out 2-3x week for 40 minutes to achieve the results I wanted. By believing in me and getting instructional coaching within a short two months during The Rock my Jeans challenge I lost inches off my waist and best of all feeling great in my skinny jeans! Thank you Fitness HI.
My name is Paul and I am a 66 year old haole man who has had a stiff neck for over 30 years and had the L-4/L-5 vertebrae fused four years ago, hence I have a pretty stiff body. For exercise, I like walking, easy hiking, and golf. Like most men my age, I was introduced to Ryan Pang and Fitness Hawaii by my wife who argued that working with a personal trainer could help my flexibility and strength. While I am basically a skeptic, I agreed to give this program a try. I met with Ryan in January 2017 and he conducted an evaluation of me and asked what goals I had. My goals were simple -- work at reducing the stiffness in my neck, increasing my flexibility, and slightly increasing my strength. These basic goals aimed to improve my general life as well as golf game. Ryan explained that I could choose to sign up on a month to month basis, make a three month commitment, or save some money and sign up for a year. Being the skeptic, I signed up for three months and I have been pretty consistent of going to the gym twice a week. After three months, I signed up for a year. After six months, I am impressed and happy with the results of my workouts. Ryan continues to make them challenging and supports my efforts. I am more flexible, I walk straighter, AND my golf game has improved!!! I find Ryan and the rest of the folks working out to be fun and stimulating. I strongly recommend this program.
I joined Finess HI with a friend last November and ended up loving it. I have wasted money on many other gym memberships through my life, paying monthly and never going. Being a part of a community with set times actually works for me. It sounds counter intuitive, but knowing that I can only go at certain times pushes me make workouts and work harder when I am there. I feel stronger and better overall. It’s fun to workout with people and get support from others with similar goals, to stay healthy! Ryan provides a safe, healthy and encouraging environment. So glad I listened to my friend!
