Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Sand and Steel is a 2019 award winner!
“Highly recommended regardless of fitness level. Customized programs designed to address each individual’s needs and goals, including nutrition, mobility, strength, cardio and yoga. Definitely worth trying at least a start-up/introductory package–you will see why they are so much better than the typical gym routine. Owners are very knowledgeable and great to work with.” -Robin G.
“When I came to Sand and Steel, I had years of weight training under my belt, yet I wanted more from the work I was putting into my workouts. Learning over the years on how to control my dietary needs is not an easy task, yet I was at a plateau with my lifting career. Little did I know that when I came in for an interview that a plethora of information was coming at me along with several coaches willing to assist in any way they could about proper execution of the exercises I was doing or coaching other clients on how to perform. Every time I enter the business I learn something new, all the staff are friendly and helpful and are ready to assist you in achieving your fitness goals”. -C.W.
It’s not every business that receives such rave reviews. In fact, most don’t. But, Sand and Steel Fitness has thoroughly impressed their clients. That’s why they have a 100.00 Rating Score™, 4.93-star average rating on verified review sites, and a spot among the top five fitness centers in the state of Virginia.
Not Your Average Fitness Center
We spoke with Paul Roberts, the head personal trainer at Sand and Steel Fitness, about his business’ awesome reputation online.
As one of the top five fitness centers in Virginia, the Sand and Steel team is certainly doing something right to stand out. What does Paul think the secret is to their stand-out online reputation? “Service and customization — we work with each client individually, taking into account the individual’s goals and current ability level. We fit the individual elements to the person instead of trying to squeeze people into programs that don’t fit them. We also have a mentorship training program for all our personal trainers to enable all trainers to work with our clients at that level.”
Building Success Through Continued Learning
As an important part of an award-winning business’ success, we knew Paul would have some great advice for those that want to improve their online reputation. Here’s what he had to say:
“Study every day. Read a new book on yoga, powerlifting, stretching, etc. every week. Take a new certification every three months. Focus on getting better every single day. Personal training is competitive everyone wants to hire the best coach possible. Put your foot on the gas pedal and keep pushing to get better. Your new clients will see it, and they want to train with you. Other personal trainers will want to work for you. To be successful in personal training, you must be the hardest working person in your area. It’s that simple.”
Thank you for speaking with us, Paul! Congratulations to the team at Sand and Steel Fitness for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!
