WHO NEEDS A PERSONAL TRAINER?

Whether it is for an upcoming athletic event or reaching a specific body fat percentage, let one of our experienced Personal Trainers help you. One-on-one and group training are available.

WHY CHOOSE A PERSONAL TRAINER?

Our Trainers have the knowledge you are looking for. They keep up with the latest research through training & educational programs. Our Trainers will reduce your likelihood of injury by being conscious of your safety and instruct you on proper form. Your workout will be preplanned, saving you time! Your workouts will be motivating and will maximize your results by adding a variety of training principles.

HOW MUCH PERSONAL TRAINING DO I NEED?

This will be determined by your Personal Trainer after completing your Consultation. This consultation will consist of your personal/medical history, past exercise involvement, goal setting and fitness assessment. A consultation without the fitness assessment is also available and can be scheduled with the Trainer of your choice.

FITNESS ASSESSMENTS

An assessment of the five health-related areas of physical fitness: cardiovascular fitness, muscular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility and body composition.  This is an excellent analysis of your current fitness level! Body fat analysis is also available.

Contact any Personal Trainer to schedule an appointment.

I decided to include 1 session per week of Personal Training into my overall personal wellness plan. We have focussed on developing strength and as a result I have toned up, plus the physical improvements have enhanced my tennis game. Kelly has a positive, yet challenging attitude and he pushes me to do more.
My husband now says that I have a body of a teenager!

Jodi Uecker-Rust

I chose Personal Training because I was not working out very hard or frequently enough, and I know that this is not my expertise. Since starting I feel stronger, healthier and have more energy for the rest of the day. I stay motivated as I have seen results and I know that I would have a hard time coming in on my own. Ryan knows his stuff. He changes things up and continues to kick my butt.

Justin Berg

I chose Personal Training because I needed to regain fitness and strength following injury and surgery. Mark has the expertise to help train around my injury and strengthen the affected area. Having Mark as my Trainer has been a great motivator.

Paul Oppegard

I chose to start Personal Training because I needed to do something to strengthen my arms and upper torso. Also, I needed to lose weight and strength training accelerates weight loss by increasing muscle mass and metabolic rate. The benefits of having Mark are that I have lost weight and inches, and also I have more energy and I sleep more soundly. The results of Personal Training are what keep me motivated and I encourage everyone to sign up for Personal Training - you'll be amazed at the results.

Mary Johnson

Courts Plus Community Fitness is really a great place to get my workouts accomplished. It has everything I need with a huge selection of cardio and weights plus great people from the community.
