Fitness Consultation

To reach your goals, you have to know where you're starting from. Fitness consultations are used to determine current fitness level, training goals and strategy for improvement. The Fitness consultation is a 30-45 minute meeting that includes the following: Resting measurements, Functional Movement Screen (FMS), and discussion based on client goals, exercise/medical history, client needs and wants, etc. This consultation is required for all new clients and will serve as your first session.

One-On-One Training

These sessions are extremely beneficial for those who prefer individual personal instruction, motivation and support. Your trainer will customize sessions for you that may include weight machines, free weights, cardio equipment, flexibility, core, balance training and TRX (Total Body Resistance eXercise).

All new participants must complete a fitness consultation prior to beginning training. The first session of your package will include your fitness consultation.

Program Design

If you already work out regularly and feel you can motivate yourself but just need a program to follow, this is for you! A "Program Design" gives you a written workout that you can follow on your own, plus one individual personal training session and a fitness consultation. A nationally certified trainer will meet with you to determine your goals, then take you through your personalized workout to make sure you understand how to perform all the exercises correctly and safely and then hand off the workout for you to perform on your own.

Cost: $80/members, $100/non-members

We also offer virtual personal training, in-person large group training for groups, CIO’s and faculty/staff departments and sports specific training for individuals and groups.
