Personal Training

Personal training is a safe, effective and individualized approach to fitness. Our professional training staff is committed to helping each individual achieve his or her personal health/fitness, post-rehabilitation, and/or sport-specific goals through the utilization and application of sound training principles. All our trainers possess certification from a National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) accredited organization, or a National Board of Fitness Examiners (NBFE) affiliate. While each applies his or her own unique approach to training based upon personal philosophy, education and experience, all personal trainers adhere to the fitness guidelines set forth by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). Moreover, all fitness training staff are required to possess Emergency Response Certification in First Aid, CPR and AED.
