Virtual Training

We currently offer a safe, non-contact personal training experience from the comfort & convenience of your own home or location of your choice. Our staff will assist you in developing good habits to achieve fitness goals. You will get the same motivation & accountability from an in-person appointment. The same form & coaching to increase effectiveness & safety of training. Programs will be customized & individualized to the user, same as in person, but now you don't have to compete with weather, traffic, crowds, or distractions trying to deter you on the road to your fitness goals. Learn to utilize tools/equipment you already have in your own home. Plan & discuss how to stay active no matter your challenges and think about new strategies to implement physical activity and exercise into your current routine. You will get all this from a virtual session, plus, you will find it the most affordable 1:1 service we have. Take a look at our meet the team page. Once you find a trainer you would like to work with, you can email them directly or reach out to our service manager, Mike Tuggle.

Virtual Training Sessions will be hosted by Webex  or Zoom calls. (HIPAA compliant) If you would like to find out more about Webex Click Here & for Zoom Click Here.

I have never been more satisfied with anyone connected to my health and well being. I feel very fortunate to have connected with someone of his intelligence and concern at this more vulnerable part of my life.
