Sometimes a little help and motivation goes 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 and vary training programs while giving clients the knowledge and tools to eventually develop a personalized program that can be modified and followed throughout life.

I am also a former United States Curling Champion.
