Personal Training

Never Do the Same Workout

Why work with a personal trainer?

A personal trainer is a fitness coach, just like a coach for any other sport. They are there to advise on form, suggest strategy, guide direction and provide motivation. Just like you might hire a tennis coach to improve your strokes, or a swimming coach to learn to swim, a personal trainer can help you perfect the exercise techniques to hit your fitness goals.

How often should I train with a coach?

How often you work with a trainer depends on time, motivation and budget. Some people are very self-motivated and just need a little guidance now and then; others readily admit they’re lazy, and won’t exercise unless their trainer provides the external push. We recommend training 1-3 times per week with a trainer to keep on track.

Where will we train?

As independent trainers, we work with clients to identify where they would like to train. This may be…


We offer 1-on-1 training, sessions for 2 or 3 people, and group classes. You will get more individual attention and personalized instruction the smaller the group. But group classes are fun and cost-effective.

The kind you like. We hear comments like, “I run, but I don’t really like running.” So don’t run! Life is too short to do things you don’t enjoy. We will work together to find the kind of exercise you enjoy most.

As often as possible! We recommend trying to exercise a little every day (OK, 6 days a week!), for 15 minutes. Think of this daily habit like brushing your teeth, but for your body. Then try to have a longer workout of 30-45 minutes 3 times per week. Strength training every 2-3 days works best for boosting metabolism, building muscle, and shedding fat.

By adding healthier, nutritious food choices to your diet, and through exercise. In our experience, the breakdown is around 60/40. You can eat whatever you want as long as you exercise enough. Conversely, you can lose weight if you simply stop eating or drinking. We don’t recommend either extreme. Blending regular activity with wise choices of food is a smart way to go.
