Q: How is HealthStyle Fitness Personal Training Team Different?

A: We realize that sometimes it’s difficult for the consumer to distinguish between personal trainers and facilities. The unfortunate truth is simply that the fitness industry is complete unregulated today. In the state of Ohio, a person can become and practice the science of personal training without any credentials. So essentially someone can create, implement and take you through a training program with no background, college degree, certification, experience or qualification.

The Trainers: Our training staff is known throughout the industry and collaborates on a daily basis with the most respected fitness & nutrition experts in the nation, including Kelli Calabrese, Phil Kaplan, Dr. Chris Mohr, Jonathan Ross, Brian Schiff, among many others. Our network of Registered Dieticians, Physical Therapists, Leading Fitness Professionals and Doctors allow us to continually aspire to and acquire the highest level of knowledge with the sole purpose of delivering the most safe, effective and stimulating programs to all of our clients.

We go well beyond counting repetitions; our goal is to educate and empower you for health, fitness and weight loss success. Our passion is helping you.

Private Studio: The HealthStyle Fitness Personal Training Studio is a ‘home away from home’ private studio that is not your typical crowded gym. The atmosphere here is very different.

Because you are always with your own personal trainer, there is never a ‘crowd’ watching or people wandering around wasting time. We individually cater to clients who are serious about improving their overall health, reducing weight and stress levels and reaping the benefits of living a healthier lifestyle.

As a result, our environment is motivating and non-intimidating. We work hard to inspire our clients to pursue realistic goals–goals that can fit into each person’s schedule and way of life.

Our Company: We can also promise you this… your experience with HealthStyle Fitness will be far different than what you are used to.

Today, there are very few businesses we encounter that seem to know how to treat their customers and clients… and when you do come across a company that does, it’s definitely a pleasant surprise, rather than the norm.

We all enjoy when a business or company goes above and beyond to serve us. It gives us a sense that we are appreciated and wanting to not only do business with them again, but also tell everyone about how special they are…

The staff at HealthStyle Fitness strives to give you that same level of service… to help you look and feel great… we hope that you’ll be so thrilled that you’ll want to tell all your friends and family about your great experience!

Q: How Does HealthStyle Fitness Work with Clients?

A: We work with clients in a private fitness studio through One-on-One Personal Training:

Simply put, personal training is the fastest, most effective and most legitimate weight loss and fitness optimization strategy available. In 3-6 one-hour sessions with a well regarded personal training team, people learn more about proper nutrition and exercise than they could learn reading 10 books or exercising on their own for years.

Q: How Do I Get Started with HealthStyle Fitness and My Trainer?

Step One: We begin with a health and fitness consultation where we thoroughly review your health history, learn about and discuss your needs, establish goals and set timelines, and then conduct a detailed health and fitness analysis (Click Here for Info on the Health & Fitness Analysis). At your first session we’ll also discuss and set up a schedule that fits your needs and desires.

Step Two: After your consultation and analysis, you’ll then join Brian in a small group for the 90 Minute Foundational Workshop – “Clearing Up the Myths, Sharing the Realities & Empowering You for Success“. After the workshop you’ll have a crystal clear understanding of your path to your optimal health, fitness and body – you’ll be on your way with a newfound enthusiasm and motivation.

Step Three: You’re now ready to start working with your personal trainer to begin moving toward your health, fitness and weight loss goals. We offer a pay as you go plan – or significant savings through the Jump Start or Fitness Make-Over Packages.

The start up process, although thorough & detailed, is quick and easy – We’ll get you started as soon as you’re ready!

Q: What will I be doing in each workout?

A: Your workout is designed based upon your health history, your goals, any current limitations and your time available for exercise. Our focus is to educate you on all of the essential components of good health: flexibility, stamina, endurance, strength and weight reduction, and of course, take you through well developed training sessions. Clients generally start to feel better, physically and mentally, the first week they begin their training.

Q: Are you going to make me look like a body builder?

A: If you’re looking to become a body builder, we’ll refer you to the trainers who specialize in physique contests preparation – that’s not our specialty. We’ll be training you to be physically fit and healthy, to lose weight, get in shape and to enhance energy & vitality. You will build some lean, toned muscle as you train, and your body will change positively as a result.

Q: Are you going to sell me a huge package of training sessions or use high pressure sales tactics?

A: Absolutely not!

We are professional trainers who work with clients because it’s simply our lifelong passion and labor of love. Many gyms, health clubs, fitness centers and personal trainers entice you into signing up for months or years of membership or personal training, and worse yet, the training isn’t personal, it’s in a group and not well surpervised.

We are so confident in our approach that we offer pay as you go personal training and you can discontinue at any time. We simply don’t feel the need to lock anyone into a long contract or sell huge personal training packages. We do make package options available to offer you a discount on multiple sessions.

Our programs are endorsed by medical doctors and have been featured in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. We treat you with respect and professionalism. Simply put, we want you to feel 100% comfortable at all times.

Q: Are there a lot of other people in the studio while I’m training?

A: During your personal training session, there will never be more than a few people working out simultaneously. Therefore you are not waiting for equipment or having others people staring at you during your session. Our goal is to make you feel 100% comfortable here at HealthStyle Fitness. Everyone, from the trainers to the clients have fun, support each other and are very courteous.

Q: Do you help me with my nutrition and eating?

A: Definitely.

Each client attends the Foundational Nutrition Workshop where we teach you everything that you need to know about eating the right foods with the right frequency to elevate metabolism and lose significant body fat. All clients are given full access to the leading online nutritional software system that ensures they are getting the right balance of nutrients for their individual goals (click here to view the demo). Our approach has lead to literally over one thousands weight loss successes throughout greater Cincinnati…and best of all, it’s a simple and easy program to follow once you get started. In fact, in a few short months, it just becomes a part of what you do and you’ll never feel deprived.

Q: How long is each session?

A: Each private one-on-one training session last for an hour.

Our training incorporates multiple muscle group movements allowing us to accomplish a maximum amount of fitness in the shortest amount of time. Of course, we progress clients based upon their existing condition level – new exercisers begin gently and more advanced enthusiast progress more aggressively.

Q: What should I wear?

A: Wear what you’re comfortable wearing. Most clients train in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. Some wear sweats. It doesn’t matter as long as you feel comfortable.

Q: Can my spouse, children or friend train with me too?

A: Without a doubt! In fact, we encourage it. Our goal is to help as many Cincinnatians as possible and getting your friends and family involved is a great way to develop a support network and will help everyone look and feel great!

Q: Can I come in anytime I want?

A: All training sessions are by appointment. We begin as early as 5:00am or as late as 8:00pm. At your consultation, we’ll set up a meeting time that’s convenient for you. With our approach, you’ll make sure you get to your workouts. Chances are if you put it off, you won’t do it, continuing your frustration with reaching your health & fitness goals.

Q: I feel a little nervous about getting started, I have never done anything like this before.

A: Many new clients felt that way – it’s completely okay. What we find is after you meet us, you feel exceptionally comfortable with our staff and training approach. We are guided by a simple passion for helping people – we thrive by educating clients and designing programs that take them well beyond their goals, beyond what they ever thought was possible. We’re here to support you and bring out your best health, fitness and body. That’s our promise and commitment to you.

Q: How much does it cost?

A: Private personal training ranges from $50 – $60 per session, depending on the package you purchase (more sessions = lower rate). If you add a spouse, child or friend to your session the cost is significantly lower per person.

Ask yourself what taking charge of your health, energy & vitality and getting into great shape is worth to you? Most people find that in just 3-6 one-hour sessions with a well regarded personal training team they learn more about proper nutrition and exercise than they have by reading 10 books or exercising on their own. Just ask our clients, they will tell you HealthStyle Fitness has been one of the most important investments they have ever made.
