Benhamou Family (Marbella)

Mom: "The best trainer in Marbella"

My son has been training with Manu at Health First Studio for a while now and he absolutely loves it (he even wants to train at 7am before school!)...

...Manu has a very good understanding of not only the physical side of children, but the mental side as well. Manu is fully qualified in physical education and has gone beyond the call of duty to train as well as enhance his own knowledge in his field.

Manu focuses on what children need to strengthen and develop their bodies, without exceeding their limits. He understands very well that children have developing bodies and different needs than adults. I like that he stresses the importance not only about strength and cardio capabilities, but stretching. Being flexible is absolutely necessary to avoid injury as well as to improve on technique.

Manu is fantastic with children (adults and seniors too!) and goes beyond being just a trainer. He is a mentor and an excellent role model, particularly for boys who look up to him. Manu is a magnificent athlete himself who has his own impressive track record in sports. He has a love of sport and nature that permeates and touches everyone.

I have been training with Manu myself and am just starting to get my daughter into his classes. My husband also is completely motivated to train with Manu, so we both understand his style, history, experience and knowledge of sport, athletics and body mechanics. We would never leave our children in the hands of any other trainer. We completely trust Manu to encourage, motivate and train our children to the highest of their capabilities knowing that he is competent and would never over extend the abilities of our children. As an example, we recently returned from a trip to Kilimanjaro and not only did we feel completely prepared for it (and made it to the summit), but our 15 year old son did as well (and also summited!). Thank you Manu!

My husband and I managed to convince my 77 year old father-in-law, who never did a day of sport in his life, to give Health First Studio a try. Not only did he love it, but he is now training regularly twice a week and is in the best health of his life.

I just can't praise Manu enough and highly encourage anyone (both children and adults) to meet him one day. If not to train, then to meet a very nice person. (August 2013)

Dad: "Highly recommended personal trainer "

Manu is one of a kind for kids or adults! Very highly recommended. (August 2013)

Nina: "Fantastic club, fantastic trainer"

Emanuel Poggio, Manu, is an exceptional trainer. He is extremely knowledgeable , his work ethic is undescrible, respectful and above and beyond inspirational!! I was the person that could eat everything she wanted and not gain any weight, until the years started to catch up with me, ouch!!

...I was referred to Manu by a good friend and started training with him a couple of times a week. In a 10 month period , I managed to lose 8 kilos, but aside from the weight loss I was a healthier person.

He also introduced me to other forms of exercise allowing me to find a healthy balance. He stressed the importance of the outdoors, so running and hiking were a given, iyenger yoga with carola polo and the list goes on.

He is a good and kind hearted human being with a genuine concern for all his clients. But Manu aside, the rest of the staff there are just as amazing . There is a little something for everyone at Health First !!! (September 2013)
