“The trainers really push you with positive reinforcement and a team attitude. Their knowledge and motivation is the foundation of this great program. While they allow you to go at your own pace, they really stress that they want your best.
I began the EPIC program in the beginning of March 2011. I used to spend my evenings after work on the couch browsing facebook. My only exercise was two days a week of basketball, and I THOUGHT I was in decent shape. I was definitely wrong.
That is what I like about EPIC, it allows you to build on your own improvement day by day. The variety of available programs guarantees that all of your muscles will get worked out.
The first class will always be the hardest, but just realize that as each day passes you are improving bit by bit. At the end of each workout I feel not only more physically fit, but mentally as well.
There will be a point in a lot of the workouts where you think you won’t be able to go anymore, and that’s when the trainers will push you to dig deep within yourself to get it out of you.
After that mental breakthrough, the simple tasks you have to complete throughout the day will seem easier.”
“Working out with my daughter and spending time together is a bonus and I appreciate everything about EPIC Inc.
My daughter and I joined EPIC in January 2012, starting a journey to wellness and health.
We began with a Living Social coupon, but immediately got so much more out of this program than expected.
I’ve joined other workout programs in te past, but the EPIC teams really feels like family.
The coaches genuinely care about us and coach us individually, but we workout as a group. They truly are motivating.
I like all the components of the program.
The workshops, nutrition advice, and I feel a huge change since I started with EPIC. I am more energetic, toned and happy.”
“Everything about E.P.I.C. is …. well, epic!
If you’re looking for a great workout to give you strength, flexibility and a brand new attitude, you’ll get it with EPIC Inc. Jaiya, Kim and their teams of coaches have the mindset of an athlete, meaning they believe in pushing people to their maximum potential and work with the entire team as a whole.
Also, the workouts are fun because you can make friends and support each other through the extremely intense workout. The group support has helped me turn personal obstacles that were draining me mentally, into success stories.
While my body has changed significantly since working with Jaiya and his new company EPIC Inc., just as importantly, my mindset has changed. I’m stronger mentally and physically than I’ve ever been in my life.
The physical effects were certainly notable but the inner strength is something that continues to impact all parts of my life.
I am stronger than I’ve ever been in my life. Not only physically stronger but mentally and emotionally as well. The program is designed to push you to the limit AND give you rest so you don’t burn out or hurt yourself.
You will get much more than physical fitness from this program, not to mention access to some great professionals such as the massage therapist, hypnosis, psychology, dance, music and more. A very holistic program and also a lot of fun.
My attitude and self-talk have improved dramatically since I began working out with E.P.I.C. Here are some facts: I used to be the slowest person in the group, now sometimes I’m fastest. I couldn’t do one push up when I first started, yet on the last fitness test I did 25 push ups OFF my knees.
Not only was I slow and weak in these two areas, I was slow and weak in a few areas of my personal life. As I got faster and stronger in the workout, things in my life started picking up and I was able to handle situations I previously avoided or ran away from because I didn’t feel strong enough.
I can honestly say that just those two things alone have transformed my entire life. I’ve never experienced results like that in any other exercise program..Ever.
I probably wouldn’t push myself even 1/2 a much if it was just me but being around others gives me the “if they can do it, so can I” feeling that draws out inner strength I didn’t even know I had.
Thank you Jaiya and Kim and the rest of the E.P.I.C. crew for all your hard work and dedication toward designing this amazing program and philosophy.”
“EPIC training is the future of fitness and the fact that the people who run it are amazing people, just makes me a supporter even more.
Being introduced to Jaiya Figueras must have been fate, as I had just cancelled my Bally’s Fitness membership because I hated working out alone.
I had no one to go to the gym with and it was depressing me.
I didn’t know how I was going to continue embarking on my quest to get healthy, but somehow Jaiya became my solution.
The first workout I did with him was with a few other guys and girls and as tough as it was, I walked out the gym smiling.
Then I began training with his partner Kim Idio, and her mere presence was motivating. Months later, coaches like Chris Sandoval, Oliver Osorio and Claudia Freitas entered the picture and my training was intensified.
Each coach has an amazingly motivational spirit and their encouragement and smiles keep you going through these very tough workouts.
They coach you individually, but we train as a group, allowing one another to also be a motivating factor. I just love the whole EPIC program and am so happy to be a part of it.”

“Amazing coaches and amazing workout!!
I’ve been training with Epic for the past few months and can honestly say the time, money and effort are all worth it!
All of the coaches are friendly and inspirational. They keep the workout environment fun and exciting but still make you work your ass off!
Everyone who trains with them are welcoming and supportive-no pressure to compete with anyone but yourself.
The program is sooo much more than just exercising-it’s about becoming better both mentally and physically. Intense but totally worth the effort… Definitely the best program in the area.”

“Working with Kim and Jaiya has allowed me to complete a total transformation mentally and physically.
The EPIC program is the complete package- aside from physical training they also include nutrition, life coaching and other helpful workshops to help their clients reach their goals and their maximum potential.
When I first became a client, I could barely run a mile, and now nine months later I am running my first half marathon.
Kim and Jaiya not only helped me gain the physical strength and discipline to complete a half marathon, but also the mental strength to know that I could complete one.
Everyone in the EPIC program is supportive and encouraging. Kim helped me realize what my true goals were by pointing out how my physical change on the outside would empower me and be a positive force in my life.
Not only am I leaner and lighter then I was when I started, but I am a lot more confident as well. Kim and the rest of the EPIC team believed in me every step of the way and pushed me further then I ever thought I would go.
And for that, I am grateful.”

“I found EPIC through living social and have had a GREAT experience.
I’m the type of person who fluctuates between being really into working out and being lazy. The biggest thing I lack is the motivation to push my limits when working out.
The coaches at EPIC and the others working out help to motivate me and make it fun. It is so much more than a work out though, they have other events such as nutrition workshops and motivational speeches to help with the whole transformation.
I’m not a big runner so I don’t go to the bootcamp class, but I love the ramp up/warrior workout/top gun classes. The coaches will modify the workout without hesitation or giving you a hard time if you have any injuries you are dealing with which is really great.
I highly recommend this gym to anyone who is looking for a little boost or a major lifestyle change!!”
Long Beach, Ca.
“It’s a different kind of workout because we do it as a team, but we’re not a part of a sport so I call it “Team Health!”
It’s like we’re all working towards a healthy lifestyle and the coaches and other clients are so motivating and inspiring.
The positive environment really keeps me coming back.”
Here are the testimonials from people that attended
EPIC’s motivational speaking engagement The Intangibles.
Unfortunately, we let the judgements of others and the fear of failure stop us from taking the journey on.
We end up in an uphill battle going upstream as we fight our inner talents from coming out.
