who are We?
Liam "Taku" Bauer
Liam is celebrating 30 years as a strength coach in 2018. From his humble beginnings in a Nautilus gym in Washington D.C., Liam has trained thousands of clients privately as well as acting as a fitness consultant for clients all over the world.
Liam likens his training style to Bruce Lee's "Jeet Kune Do." His methods have a foundation in effort-based strength training (a.k.a. high intensity or HIT training). However, as an eternal student, Liam borrows from countless influences.
His clients defy gender and age stereotypes. From professional athletes to nonagenarians Liam has seen it all.
Liam currently trains clients at Fitness SF in Oakland, CA.
Jesse began his personal training career in April 2017 and quickly achieved the title of "Fitness Director" at Fitness SF in Oakland. He credits his early success to his voracious appetite for learning and guidance from his mentor, Liam Bauer.
Jesse graduated from UCLA in 2011 with a degree in American Literature. He is an avid rock climber, baseball player, and aspiring ninja warrior.
Jesse's clients include seniors, high school athletes, marathon runners, obstacle course racers, and martial artists.
