Personal Training

The Personal Training department’s mission is to empower, educate and enhance the lives of the people in our community through individualized fitness programming. Personal Training has two main functions; personal training and health evaluations. Additionally, this department provides leadership for special sport programs, like triathlon and marathon programs. This group also offers one-on-one Pilates Reformer sessions for members and guests. Personal training is available to all members, but personal training fees are not included in the basic membership fees; packages and fees are detailed in the personal training brochure.

Clinical Training

Individuals dealing with metabolic, orthopedic, neuromuscular issues, or a combination of medical challenges can feel comfortable exercising with a highly educated trainer who will communicate with the clinical client’s personal physician or therapist. Clinical training is meant to be a “step-down” from rehab services into independent exercise or regular personal training.
