    An expert many times over, Lance Callahan has given upwards of 45,000 personal training sessions over the past 22 years. Lance, 46, is one of the most experienced and dedicated Personal Trainers in Los Angeles. And now he is adding Life Coaching to his list of services. He has been certified by the American College of Sports Medicine and the Life Coach Institute of Orange County. But it is his experience and passion that sets him apart.

    Lance is one of the strongest and most inspirational people you'll ever meet. A survivor of trauma (including third-degree burns on his hands and scalp resulting from a severe car accident when he was 4, child abuse, child poverty, and the extra-challenging life experience these factors set him up for), Lance had very few roles models during his tumultous childhood in the 1980s. One of those was his father's brother who was a recreational bodybuilder. As a wee lad Lance also took solace in the He-Man animated series and action figures. Thus was born his innate desire to be a bodybuilder, positive role model, and warrior for good in this often cruel and unfair world.

    Life Coaching (In-Person or Online)

    In a rut? Wish to make some life changes but don't feel you can do it alone? Just need some support from someone you can trust? Try out my Life Coaching services.


    Distinct from psychotherapy which tends to focus on how elements in your past effect your day-to-day, Life Coaching sessions (or "good talks" as I like to call them) look forward and help you answer the fundamental question: What do I really want and how can I go about getting it?


    If I can pull myself out of the hellhole I lived in for much of my life I can surely be of some assistance to you. I will hold you accountable and support you in your journey. I believe in you. It's my job!


    Sessions can take place at my studio, online, or elsewhere at an agreed upon location.
