Four Seasons Personal Trainers
At Four Seasons, your Personal Trainer isn’t just a stranger who you spend time with one or two hours a week. Our Personal Trainers are here to coach you through your fitness goals, not only are they here to assist you in improving your physical needs but to help motivate and encourage you! Our Trainers, like much of our staff here, are committed to helping you live an overall healthier lifestyle.
We take the time to pair you with someone who not only fits your schedule but who specializes in the fitness areas you hope to improve. It is even better if we can pair you with someone who has similar interests and characteristics you are looking for in a fitness coach. This series of Trainer Tuesday blogs uses a short Q&A to introduce you to a new Four Seasons Personal Trainer each week. Read about them, get to know them better, say hello in the gym, sign up for a consultation and allow them to become a coach and advocate for your healthier lifestyle!

Q: What is your favorite thing about personal training?
A: Watching clients’ confidence grow as they begin to see the results of their hard work and effort.
Q: Do you have a favorite personal training memory?
A: Telling my first client “today’s workout will eventually become your warm up routine” and then watching that happen over time!
Q: Can you tell us a little bit about your Small Group Training class?
A: My small group training is a total body resistance training and cardiovascular workout designed to help clients increase strength, lose body fat and increase cardiovascular efficiency. Clients experience a variety of strength training circuits that combines lifting weights/objects, plyometrics and core work. Whether your goal outside of the class is to lift heavier weights in the gym or to lift your niece/nephew/grandchild/child without feeling pain – this class will help you.
