The trainers here have competed at the top of their sports and have the coaching skills to help get you to where you want to be. While the classes are a great way to start heading to your goals, we know we aren’t able to cater to each individual need, and that is where personal attention and programming come in. It also creates a safer environment to learn and develop the skills you need and you can build up to the proper intensity at your own speed. If what you’re doing just isn’t enough, or you need a watchful eye, helping hand, or just a little motivational fortitude, contact any one of our trainers or call the gym today to set up your free one hour consultation today!

Personal note:
I’ve been a personal trainer since 2008. I’ve helped people lose weight and keep it off; gain weight and strength; get ready for CrossFit, weightlifting, and powerlifting competitions; and I’ve helped a lot of people become fitter and healthier. Everyone has the potential to be where they want to be; sometimes they need a helping hand to get there. I’ve been able to provide that through nutritional counseling, skill work, personal programming, and everything in between.
