Kewesi is a top level trainer. He is an excellent communicator and knows how to motivate you to strive towards (and beyond) your potential. He has developed a great dynamic among the regulars who train with him, and he also works extremely well one-on-one with clients. I appreciate his full, comprehensive knowledge of the human body and how to adjust... read more

Kewesi is the best trainer I’ve ever had the benefit to know! I’ve been working with him over the course of the last year and a half - both one on one as well as in his small group training classes. I’ve made steady improvements without injury, undone some prior ailments, too - all without any cycles of progress/regress shame.... read more

I’ve been working out here for YEARS. The facilities are on point, and Kewesi is a fabulous trainer and person. He goes above and beyond and tailors every work out to where your body is at that day. I have recently been dealing with some health issues and his training in massage has helped him identify and work through... read more

I felt super safe and protected when I trained at KES, even at my age, because Kewesi is careful to assess what is safe for your body to do during personal training. I really enjoy his martial arts philosophy-based training. Ladies, you won't find a trainer with higher integrity and drive to help you learn to defend yourself on many... read more

Kewesi is an excellent martial arts and personal fitness trainer. He is gifted at motivating you beyond your potential without pushing you too hard for what you're physically not ready for. I highly recommend KES Fitness.

Kewesi is an amazing personal trainer, he has helped me to recover from having a baby and, maintain longevity to do a physically demanding job. He also mixes in self defense, with core, and weight training.

KES Fitness, owned and operated by Kewesi Simon, is singlehandedly the best gym I've been a part of. I've been attending for about a year, and each time I see Kewesi feels like seeing an old friend.

The level of attention Kewesi gives each of his students and trainees during his sessions or classes is unparalleled. Even with several students engaged...

5 star rating I was very impressed by Kewesi's beautiful and inviting gym. Kewesi is welcoming and friendly, but when it comes to defense and martial arts, he is all business. I can't wait to go back and train with this power house. Yes! Highly recommend!

The level of personal attention Kewesi gives everyone in class is amazing. I'd never trained Muay Thai before and I got hooked and stayed on until I left Oakland. The boot camp classes are also great. Be consistent and you will get fit and fearsome. The regulars are smart, interesting, and dedicated people.

Kewesi has become an exemplary instructor for me since my first day in his Muay Thai class 3 years ago. His teaching is as rigorous as it is rewarding. My experience at KES Fitness has truly changed my life for the better. Thank you for everything Kewesi and everyone at KES!
