Focuses on "YOU"; optimizing workouts in the amount of time that you have available, and creates a plan that you can stick to.

Can provide encouragement and develop safe strategies to achieve or maintain a healthy weight.

Teaches you proper techniques to exercise safely and effectively.

Empowers you to make your fitness routine a part of your lifestyle.

Is for anyone of any age or fitness level; from the individual who wants to improve flexibility and range-of-motion to the seasoned athlete.

Buddy Training

Buddy training is the hot new trend in the fitness industry that allows 2 people to train together.  For an affordable combined rate, you and your exercise partner will receive all the guidance and experience of a certified personal trainer with the benefit of companionship, accountability and perhaps a little friendly competition to push you a bit harder while you exercise!  It's a great option for friends, co-workers, or a parent/teen combo.  Your personal Trainer will support, guide and motivate you both to achieve your health and fitness goals by developing a fitness program that is specifically tailored to each of  your objectives.  This can be accomplished on land, in the pool or a combination of both.

Our buddy training accommodates all fitness levels so it does not matter if you are just starting your fitness routine, if you've been working out but not reaching your goals or if you simply want to mix things up.

Dates/Times:  Sessions will be set up between you and your trainer for whatever day and times works for your busy schedule.  Give us a call and we will connect you with a trainer.

Location:  This will be based upon your goals, may include Washington Center Gym, Aquatic and Fitness Center, etc.
