Hello, I'm El-Ad Cohen, a Certified Personal Trainer accredited by the American College of Sports Medicine. I have extensive experience in physical therapy, having completed 1000 hours of clinical training at the University of Haifa in Israel, where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Physical Therapy. Currently, I work as an exercise physiologist at a physical therapy outpatient orthopedic clinic in Colorado and am pursuing a Transitional Doctorate of Physical Therapy.

My diverse background includes being a martial artist, dancer, and former soldier in the IDF. I take a minimalist fitness approach, creating personalized training plans that don't require gym access or lots of time and equipment. I've worked with clients ranging from athletes to recent rehabilitation patients, and everyone in between.

I am fully vaccinated and have received a booster against COVID-19.

Let's chat! Your first session is on me!

In addition to personal training, I offer other services such as Health Coaching, Meditation, Language Lessons, Hip-Hop Dance and Self-Defense and Martial Arts Coaching. As a trained editor and translator, I have expertise in social and life sciences.

For Health Coaching, I take a holistic approach that considers all facets of your health behavior, including exercise, diet, mental hygiene, and stress reduction. By understanding the complete picture, we can create a roadmap to help you take charge of your health.

As a practitioner of mindfulness and meditation for 10 years, I can help beginners or those needing guidance in their current practice.

Growing up bilingual in Hebrew and English, I have worked as an academic editor and translator. I can also provide language lessons.

As a Hip-Hop dancer, I have experience teaching improvisation and technique to individuals or groups. My combination of dance, martial arts, and physical therapy backgrounds complement each other.

If you're interested in learning Self-Defense or Martial Arts, I have competed in various styles and have coached striking and close-quarters techniques for individuals or small groups. Whether your goal is self-defense or achieving a strong and capable body, I'm here to support you.

It was an incredible experience! I acquired a great deal of knowledge and my body significantly gained in strength. Regrettably, due to frequent travels, I was unable to pursue it further.

For roughly two months, I've been regularly meeting with him and have noticed a considerable amount of progress. As someone with a background in physical therapy, his expertise has proved to be valuable. I have come to realize that I possess greater strength than I initially thought, and our workouts frequently center around learning how to activate specific muscles and improving my coordination. Compared to past experiences with other trainers, I have never encountered someone so willing to educate and explain the reasons behind each exercise. He is eager to impart his knowledge of the human body, and if you desire to learn, you'll be enriched. I look forward to our weekly sessions and appreciate the sense of accountability he provides, which keeps me focused and enthusiastic about achieving my goals of becoming stronger and healthier.

Tempest Training's El Ad Cohen is an exceptional trainer. He challenges me to surpass my self-imposed boundaries, all the while prioritizing my safety during our sessions. When I feel fatigued, he urges me to rest so that I may have the energy to continue. El Ad's perceptive, benevolent, and stringent demeanor enables me to make progress with each encounter. I trust that his focused guidance and instruction are appropriate for both novice and experienced individuals seeking to enhance their fitness.

It was an exceptional experience with an Israeli-trained instructor (which I personally loved) who had remarkable expertise. Moreover, the workout session was enriched with diverse and unique equipment.
