Personal Training

Are you not getting the most out of your workouts? Not sure what machines to use, how to use them, how often to use them, or how to maximize the effect and more?

Certified personal trainers take the work out of the weight room and are passionate about helping you! The personal trainers assess your current abilities and listen to your personal goals, and create a specialized plan just for you.

Fitness Assessments

Fitness assessments are an instrumental part of personal training. They allow a personal trainer and client to be aware of current fitness levels. Several tests are administered; push-up test; sit-up test; sit-and-reach test; postural assessment; body composition and a Functional Movement Screening.

Personal Training Programs

Personal training is individualized, and a selected trainer works with you one-on-one. The personal trainer will use cardiovascular training, weights, thera-bands and other specialty equipment to help build your training program. During your session your trainer will provide focused exercise instruction based on your goals and fitness outcome. The guidance and consistent encouragement will help you maintain your motivation and confidence.
