cardio training

weight training

kinesthetic awareness

The most efficient calorie burning exercise coupled with the strengthening of your heart, blood vessels and lungs makes c-v training a major factor in reaching your goals. We will determine your Training Heart Rate for the treadmill, stationary bike, and/or the elliptical trainers to ensure your safety and efficiency.

Along with free weights (dumbbells and barbells) we have a full line of weight machines to target every major muscle group. Resistance training using elastic bands, weighted balls, stability balls and other accessories will also be incorporated. The goal is to increase your strength (muscle density) which in turn enhances your ability to burn calories.

The understanding of how your body moves in a given space is essential for long-term health and well-being. Through functional training and related exercises, balance, agility and coordination in everyday life can be improved. The goal of proper body alignment (posture) and performing the exercise with the proper form.

weight loss

muscle toning

post rehab training

Weight loss is the number one reason people seek a personal trainer.  We will educate you how to achieve and maintain a healthy weight with a customized plan designed just for you.


Muscle Toning is a common goal for all our clients. This is achieved by resistance (weight) training, cardio training and the proper diet. Your workout program will be constructed to your ability. Any orthopedic concerns or medical conditions will be addressed in this process. The health and safety of our clients is quintessential.

Many of our clients seek our help following an injury, surgery or other medical conditions. We will work with your physician and/or your physical therapist to continue the healing process and beyond.

circuit training (cross tr.)

movement for seniors

nutritional counseling

One of the most popular training methods utilized at our facility is circuit training. This involves going from station to station of varying exercises to sustain an elevated heart rate. This will enable you to burn more calories than the standard 3-5 sets of a particular exercise. This also allows you to work the majority of muscle groups in a one hour session. Typically both types of training methods and other variations will also be utilized. This is sometimes referred to as cross-training. For example, when doing cardio-vascular exercise you may switch from the treadmill to stationary bike to an elliptical trainer every 3 to 5 minutes.

More and more senior adults are seeking guided exercise sessions. We specialize in this segment of the population. Our mantra is "movement is required."  We have clients in their 90's who come 3 times a week because they find it necessary to maintain their current lifestyle. The goal is to remain functional for as long as possible.

Making healthy food choices day in and day out can be an overwhelming challenge. Your trainer will help guide you on this journey.  It is essential to learn what type of foods to choose along with portion control.  This will help you control your caloric intake and yet maintain your daily nutritional adequacy.

Training people is what we do
