Celebrity fitness coach Sam Page is celebrating his 10th year of business in the City of Angels, and was ranked “One of the 5 Best Personal Trainers in Los Angeles" His chain of Sam Page Fitness gyms quickly expanded to three locations: Hollywood, Glendale and downtown Los Angeles. His clientele includes celebrities, musicians and top Hollywood entertainment industry executives who rely on “Coach Sam” for motivation to stay in peak condition — in body, mind and spirit.
"It’s not just about celebrity fitness," Sam says. "All of my clients are real people, and they come from every walk of life. The one thing they have in common is a deep desire to change their lives." Once a troubled, overweight teenager, he knows first hand the pressures of Los Angeles and the entertainment industry. As a 13-year-old, he started a chain of candy stores, "Sam's Candy Company" in Bountiful, Utah. "Unfortunately, I ate a lot of the profits," he jokes. At 22, upon moving to Los Angeles, he became one of the youngest magazine publishers in the U.S. as co-founder of "HERO: the Magazine for the Rest of Us." Through all of this, though, Sam remained a bit stocky."I remember one morning seeing my reflection in the hallway mirror, and I said, "enough!' I trained and completed the Calfornia AIDSRide, a 570-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. That really began my course to transform my body, and my life." It was this personal experience that motivated Sam to begin a career in the Health and Fitness Industry. As a fitness coach, his writing has been published in more than 26 newspapers, magazines and websites around the world, including USA Today, PASSPORT, Livestrong.com, the Chicago Sun-Times, and Here Media. He has also provided deep collaboration & strategy for the X PRIZE Foundation, the African AIDSTrek, and Apple Inc. Sam enjoys working with clients at his private Sam Page Fitness facility, as well as in home training. He believes that the natural beauty and diversity of the Los Angeles landscape can be just as challenging as any gym routine and he can frequently be seen leading group fitness classes and hiking expeditions around Los Angeles. Sam is also a Certified Executive Protection Specialist and Security Attache.
