Getting Help From a Pro

If you want some help on your program, you can book a private session with me to go over your program.  You are going to pour a lot of time and energy into doing your program -- two to three months of training.  Maybe it's worth having a professional look at it before you invest all that time?

Personal Training Program with Your Personal Training Membership

Higher Standards Begets Better Results. Other gyms don’t require their coaches write complete programs, we do.  Other gyms don’t check and review personal training programs, we do.  Other gyms don’t require coaches to write strength programs, weight loss program, mobility programs, we do.

Our programs are rigidly and robustly checked for quality, safety, and efficacy.  We track and analyze their performance based on the members who participate in the program.  Our personal trainers are experienced in teaching your program, because we use established programs.  They aren’t making it up as they go along (like some other gyms do.)  They are polished, refined programs that maximize your time with your coach.

We include a complimentary personal training program with all of personal training memberships.

Strong, CrossFit, and Butts & Guts Program

All members of our gym (Open Gym, Personal Training and Fitness Class members) get complimentary access to our workout programs on SugarWOD.  If you aren’t a member, but you’d still like to access these programs, you can sign up for a programming only membership here.
