Personal Training Coach – Pre Contest Prep

Ernie Villegas has been a well-respected personal training coach in the fitness and health industry for over 30 years and has established himself as one of the top pre contest prep trainers nationally. Based in Scottsdale Arizona, Ernie offers bodybuilding competition programs focused on Figure, Bikini, Men’s Classic Physique, Bodybuilding and Weightless programs.

Whether you’re a seasoned IFBB Pro preparing for your next competition or seeking the physique of a competitor, Ernie offers fitness and nutrition programs that can be taken advantage of through online training, group sessions and personal 1 on 1 training. Training programs use a blend of classic and modern weight lifting to focus on weak points, plyometric strength and conditioning and cardio. All programs have a strong emphasis on the nutrition along with the right supplementation to fuel intense workouts and blast away fat.

Training with Ernie has changed my life. I always knew what was healthy and how to workout, but not how to transform my body to what I had always wanted it to be. I have never done anything so hard, but yet so rewarding. Its great if you win, but all-in-all you already get your satisfaction and reward every time you look in the mirror and see what you have done. It’s amazing the bodies God has given us, it just takes a little work, to get the full potential out of them!
