Get set up with a Personal Trainer

Go to our “Looking for a Personal Trainer?” questionnaire below to get started with a personal trainer. We will help pair you up with a trainer that’s best suited to what you’re looking to work on as well as your availability. We get you in touch with a first choice of trainer, who will then reach out to set up a free in-person consultation. You are free to meet with more than one trainer to make sure it is a great and ideal fit. Trainers are all independent and run their own business’, so prices and packages vary. Access to the facility is completely free when coming to see your trainer for sessions. If you sign up for training, and would like access outside of your sessions, you are eligible for our PT VIP membership (see details above).

What People are  Saying

Triptych is an unusual find in the world of gyms and personal training: fantastic all around. The location is convenient if you live/work in Mission, Noe, Bernal, Potrero, SOMA, or even South San Francisco / Daly City. The equipment is clean, new, and well maintained.  The building is clean, the showers are new, and the towels are fresh.


I’m writing this review as a personal trainer who rents at Triptych. I LOVE THIS GYM! As much as clients seem to enjoy it, I have to say this gym is a trainer’s dream. The equipment is so versatile that you can go from training traditional olympic lifts one moment to purely functional, machine-free exercises the next to cables after that to TRX to kettlebells — the possibilities are endless.


Triptych Strength is exactly what you dreamed of when you were frustrated by the gym chain you belong to. The space is beautiful, every piece of equipment is new and you can tell the owners are meticulous about keeping everything clean and ready to use. They also have all of the gym toys you wish your gym had.


Meticulously maintained and clean facility – one of the best I’ve experienced. New equipment and anything that isn’t new is cared for in such a way that it might as well be. Anything that’s out of order or damaged is repaired immediately…problems don’t linger (not that I’ve ever seen any real problems here)…unlike most places where issues sit for weeks or months and only gets addressed when someone complains enough times. The space is well planned and surprisingly spacious with all the necessary equipment to get to any targeted spot you’re looking to work. An amazing private gym option.


Note: This review is written from the perspective of a Trainer renting space at Triptych. I currently train clients here Mon-Sat, averaging 30-45 sessions per week. Here is a list of the awesome benefits of training here:
– New equipment that is well-taken care of
– Free Wi-Fi and temperature controlled facility
– Some of the best training rates within city limits
– Complimentary coffee, tea, and fruit for your clients
– Shower available with free towel service for you and your clients (yes, you read that right, FREE towel usage)
– The break room has a dart board and massage chair, need I say more?
– A gym owner who actually lifts
If you are a fitness professional looking for a place to set-up shop, look no further than Triptych Strength Training!


Meet the Trainers

All Personal Trainers working out of Triptych Strength are independent. They must have at least 2 years industry experience, and carry a nationally accredited Trainer Certification. This ensures that every trainer operating out of Triptych Strength is an expert in their field.


I grew up playing sports, but it wasn’t until after high school that I began to form a real understanding of strength and athletic training. Before I became a personal trainer, I trained and participated in combat sports (primarily submission grappling but also kickboxing and MMA) as both a competitor and a coach. My training philosophy is that strength is the key which unlocks everything else, whatever one’s goals may be.

Tarquin has been a trainer for over 10 years. He was a nationally ranked fencer through his teens, and started coaching people one-on-one. In college he walked into the weight room and essentially hasn’t walked out since. It was the love of working directly with people as well as strength training that led to him becoming a trainer.  He moved to San Francisco in 2009, and started working at 24 Hour Fitness. He became a Master Trainer, Fitness Manager, and trained over 5,000 sessions. He left the company in 2015 to start his own Independent Training Company, Triptych Strength. He and his wife Lauren opened the doors to their own brick and mortar facility in 2016, and they haven’t looked back since. They live close by in the neighborhood, and you can sometimes catch Tarquin on the floor with his 9 month old daughter dutifully spotting him!


A multi-sport athlete for most of his life, Justin is now a certified strength and nutrition coach (CSCS, PN) who specializes in helping others look (and feel) more like superheroes. Since 2011, he has utilized his experience as an athlete and coach, to create customized fitness solutions for his clients that help them reach their goals and enhance their lives without fitness feeling like a chore. You won’t be subjected to cookie-cutter routines or trivial fitness fads when working with Justin – whether your goal is to get superhuman strong, finally lose those last ten pounds, or simply learn the basics, he’ll provide a handcrafted, science-based program to get you there. When not training others or competing in bodybuilding, Justin can usually be found doing something supremely nerdy, like reading comic books or playing Dungeons & Dragons.


For over a decade, I’ve helped clients achieve and often surpass their fitness goals—from a budding tennis pro who went on to national tournaments, to an experienced lifter recovering from an accident that crushed his leg (who regained complete functionality). The point is, all clients are unique, and while they share the same goal—improve their fitness and quality of life—the approach must be unique and tailored to them.

And that’s what I love about my job—fine tuning my years of experience into an individualized plan that works for you. I take a holistic approach, helping you examine three important factors in meeting your fitness goals: exercise, nutrition, and rest. And, I’ve found my clients who achieve their greatest success are those who are able to balance these three cornerstones in a fashion tailored to their needs and lifestyle.

I draw on my experience in different types of fitness approaches to help you develop your individualized plan:
Powerlifting / Strength Training
Circuit training / Group Fitness
Kettlebell / TRX / Kickboxing / Karate
Sport Performance / Spartan Races

Whether you’re a seasoned pro, or just starting (or even restarting) out, I’m confident we can work together to help you meet—and go beyond—your fitness goals.

The final thing I want to emphasize is this: Fitness should be fun. I strive to infuse your program with elements you enjoy—which significantly increases your odds of reaching your fitness goals.
