Training Package Descriptions

To reach your goals, you must know where you’re starting from. Fitness assessments and consultations are used to determine current fitness levels, training goals, and strategies for improvement. The fitness assessment is a 60-minute meeting that includes the following: body composition analysis, functional movement screening, and discussion based on client goals, exercise/medical history, client needs and wants, etc.

This assessment is required for all new clients and will serve as your first session in a multi-session package.

This two-session service includes a 60-minute fitness assessment and a 60-minute personal training session. The personal training session will focus on the results of the fitness assessment and target areas of improvement. You and your trainer will also discuss how they will provide workouts to help you reach your fitness goals while giving insight into their training style and expertise!  

If you already workout regularly and feel you can motivate yourself but just need a program to follow, this is for you! A “Program Design” gives you a written 4-week workout plan (12 total workouts) that you can follow on your own, plus one individual personal training session and fitness consultation. A certified personal trainer will meet with you to determine your goals, then take you through your personalized workout to make sure you understand how to perform all the exercises correctly and safely, then hand off the workout for you to perform on your own.  

Together, you and your personal trainer will develop a personalized exercise program based on your health history, goals, and fitness level. Your trainer will instruct you on proper technique and exercise options, as well as motivate you to achieve your health and fitness goals. Each session is approximately 60 minutes.  

Partner training is limited to two clients. The price includes both clients. If a package is split between individuals with differing membership statuses, the higher prices apply to both clients.
