Many personal trainers stand by your side during your session, but our fitness trainers we believe in being hands-on – physically showing you proper technique, guiding your arms, legs and hands through the proper motions. If you are new to exercise, you’ll appreciate the education, and if you are already accustom to fitness, you’ll gain a new appreciation in the proper movements and techniques – and you’ll feel the difference!

PERSONAL PROGRAM DESIGN Personal training is helpful for any person. But personal program design is critical to your success. Any fitness trainer can take you through a generic workout, but our personal trainers craft a comprehensive personal program that is based on your fitness assessments and goals. Preplanning each session for 6 months, we’ll craft a minute-by-minute workout for you that will keep you progressing towards your goals.
