What are your hours?
Our normal studio hours are 10am-8pm, Monday-Saturday.
Personal training sessions are by appointment only and our trainers each have a variety of appointment openings. Generally, we can accommodate clients as early as 5:00 a.m. and as late as midnight 7 days a week.
How many sessions per week should I train?
We understand that every family or individual must plan personal training within their budget. Most of our clients work with their trainer 2-3 times per week for strength, core and flexibility training, then follow their trainer’s instructions for additional cardiovascular exercise on non-appointment days.
However, when a once-per week personal training program is necessary from a time or budget constraint, the trainer will design a program for you to follow between appointment times to ensure you continue to progress in meeting your fitness goal.
I don't want to get bulky muscles. Won't weight lifting make me bulky?
Don’t be misled by the pictures you see of body builders. Strength training two or three hours a week will never increase body mass to a “bulky” state.
Competitive body builders spend many hours every day lifting weights.
Why do you include strength training as part of a weight loss program? Won't that just add weight to the scale?
Strength training is critical for permanent weight loss. When we lose weight by dieting and cardiovascular exercise alone, our bodies do not differentiate between lean mass and fat. Therefore, the caloric deficit we have intentionally created to lose weight has caused us to lose muscle as well as fat.
Since lean mass (muscle) contributes to metabolism, you will not be able to sustain your new lower weight unless you continue to consume very few calories.
By keeping a healthy balance of body fat and muscle, we can eat a healthier amount of food without regaining weight. Additionally, the toning effect we can achieve from strength training will help minimize a “flabby” appearance often seen after significant weight loss.
How long does it take to see results?
This varies from client to client based on the number of sessions per week they have signed up for with their trainer, as well as how faithful they are about following instructions their trainer has given them for cardio and/or calorie consumption away from the studio.
Most clients will see significant results within a few months of beginning their personal training program.
Can I Change my Membership?
Absolutely! And, unlike other training centers, because we do our own member management, it’s as easy as sending us an email or letting us know in the studio.
What is an Open Gym?
With the base membership, you are free to come and go during operating hours whenever you want and use our studio and equipment to do your own thing.
Why is Self Defense unavailable until November 2017?
Our founder and lead instructor, Michael Saad, is currently the only instructor for our self defense program and his schedule is completely booked until late-2017. This is subject to change, so please sign up for our waiting list to be notified when his training schedule opens.
