    Personal Training at FITNESS By Design

    Why Invest in Personal Instruction? Great question! Exercise sessions are more enjoyable and beneficial when you know what you are doing, why you are doing it, and where it will take you. 

    After a few sessions, many of our clients realize the benefits of having a personal trainer guide them through their exercises. The accountability a trainer provides is invaluable to the success of your fitness program. With your hard work and commitment, and our expertise and motivation, you can start improving your health TODAY! 

    Personal training sessions are held in-person in our private studio, or virtually through Zoom. Contact Barb for a complimentary consultation.
