Personal Training

The center has a team of trainers who come from a wide array of backgrounds, which means we can offer a wide range of training specialties, including:

  • General fitness and weight loss
  • Sports athletic training
  • Post rehabilitation
  • Seniors/healthy aging
  • Chronic disease management

Our trainers use the latest fitness and health research to develop training programs for you that will make you feel stronger, healthier and able to continue your favorite activities for the rest of your life.

While some members prefer the undivided focus of a one-on-one training session customized to their needs, others prefer group training. Along with the one-on-one training and small group training (2-4 people in a group), we also offer consultation appointments for those who need advice relating to a medical condition, injury, or a specific goal.
