Personal Training

Sometimes a little help and motivation go a long way on the road to overall fitness.

Our Personal Trainers will develop an exercise program specifically for you. Our trainers have the knowledge and skill to work with you to achieve your personal health and fitness goals. A trainer acts as an expert guide and consultant, assisting clients to achieve individually selected fitness goals. He or she does this by teaching the client how to perform the exercises correctly and effectively. Personal Trainers design training programs while giving clients the knowledge and tools to eventually develop a personalized program that can be modified and followed throughout life.

Before you start any exercise program, it is important to know your fitness level. Our Personal Fitness Assessment is designed to give you a foundation to track your progress throughout your exercise program. Subsequent assessments will provide milestones to help you evaluate your progress and set goals. Our assessment is normally administered during your initial consultation with your personal trainer, consisting of the following health measurements: height, weight, blood pressure, heart rate, body composition, cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility. This is included in your training package price.

Advanced Sub-Max Fitness Analyses

Let exercise physiology help you improve your workouts. This test includes the Standard Fitness Assessment plus a submaximal bicycle ergometer test and a sit down with the personal trainer to explain what the results mean. ACSM guidelines will be followed and doctor's approval may be required.

Hi, I'm Megan! I have also been a dance instructor here since 2008. I am excited for the opportunities to help others reach their fitness goals as I have with mine. Living a healthy lifestyle is very important. The right exercise and nutrition can bring forth a new you, someone who looks and feels better from the inside out. I have always surrounded myself with physical activities whether it be sports, adventure, or just a simple swim. Exercise for me has transformed from an idea to an action, to a habit, to a lifestyle. My goal is to help YOU reach YOUR goals and YOUR potential. Whether you desire to lose weight, build muscle, or just mentally, physically and emotionally feel better, exercise can have a big helping hand in the matter.

Hi, my name is Trivor. I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology at Texas Tech University, with a minor in Chinese Language studies. My fitness journey started way back in high school when my father pushed me to go to the gym. I currently teach Raider Escape Fitness classes, Athletic Conditioning, and Boot Camp classes at Texas Tech.  I had no idea that health and fitness would turn into a passion, but now it has become the focal point of my life. My two most important values are hard work and determination. I strive to uphold these values in my everyday life, as well as when I train my clients. With hard work and determination, we can achieve the goals you have set out to reach. I want my clients to be the best they can be on their journey towards their goals. “Goals are not meant to be broken they are meant to be shattered.” - Anonymous

Hey, I'm Chelsey! I am a certified personal trainer through the American Council of Exercise (ACE). I'm majoring in Journalism with a minor in Public Relations, aspiring to become a sports journalist. I have been involved in sports exercise my entire life, playing every sport I could get myself into; softball, volleyball, track/cross country, etc. I have been involved in weight training for going on 6 years now and am excited to share my passion for the fitness industry with my coming clients.

My healthy lifestyle has helped myself to be more energetic and lead a more upbeat lifestyle and I intend to share that positivity with others. I like to have fun and make working out something you will look forward to and enjoy, opposed to a chore. So come workout with me today! Let me help you to find yourself and your new favorite pastime, being in the gym.
