Brian DonovanMy sessions involve a combination of traditional strength training in conjunction with high intensity interval training. I place a lot of focus on form and functional movements. I educate my clients on nutrition, take monthly measurements and perform strength assessments to mark our progress. All of my clients have an online profile with a username and log-in that allows them to sync their workout programs with their phone calendar, as well as access to fitness and nutrition charts and graphs that allow them to track their calories, macronutrients, progress, and metrics such as circumference measurements, weight, and body fat %. They also have the option of having their daily workout emailed to them each morning, as well as access to a workout library with videos of each exercise to help them with their form.
It is about quality not quantity. Get in, go hard, go home. You do not need more than 45 minutes to an hour, 3 to 5 days a week to get into great shape but you must know how to eat, when to eat, when to rest and recover, how to workout, and why you are doing what it is you are doing. That's where I come in.
THESE THINGS COST ABOUT THE SAME AS A PERSONAL TRAINING SESSION
There are splurges and necessities. All of the below items are similar in price to a training session but won't make you feel half as good. Invest in yourself!
MOVIE TICKETS & POPCORN FOR TWO
HALF A PAIR OF SNEAKERS
A FEW ROUNDS AT A BAR

I believe that nothing is more important than taking care of our health. No matter your body type, we were given these amazing machines, our bodies, and with proper care, we can keep them running smoothly our entire lives. For me, that care begins with fitness and nutrition. I began dancing at the age of 5 and have been a dance and exercise enthusiast my entire life. I wholeheartedly believe that anyone can enjoy the benefits of fitness at any age, and I pay close attention to clients to understand their particular strengths and challenges. My focus is on form and safe practice and I customize my approach to each client’s anatomy and conditions and modify exercises as needed. The key is to cross train and find things you enjoy to stay active and in shape. I became a personal trainer to help others become or continue to be active and take pride in their bodies. So much of living is feeling good about yourself and while I am not easy as a coach, I am great at cheering my clients on and helping them to adopt a lifestyle of exercise and healthy eating so they can be and feel their best.
My mission is to empower you to create a sustainable lifestyle full of balance and healthy choices. I am an avid runner and cyclist who has completed many marathons. I love working to make people stronger and feel great about themselves. No two people are alike, therefore each individual’s program is as unique as their goals. I tailor my programs for you to ensure that it is enjoyable enough to motivate you to do it, and challenging enough to produce the results you want. Together, I work with you to develop a program to meet your goals and address areas for improvement. I like to learn about a client, their interests, what they enjoy, what motivates them. I will cater the day to day plans to that.
I am a teacher at heart with over 6 years of educational experience. If someone learns why a move is important they have a higher chance of repeating it on their own. I want all my clients to learn why they are doing what they are doing and embrace this new knowledge. I strive to be considered more of a coach and accountability mentor.
I will mostly work on the whole body through a combination of circuit training and tempo training (unless otherwise discussed based on goals). Every workout will be different and varied based on skill level. The variations of exercises will grow with your skills! I do this through a variety of mediums depending on your space and equipment and love to use playgrounds during warm weather months. I also have expertise at improving athletic power and can tailor training plans for specific races, power, strength or marathons.

Fatime has had opportunities to work in sports rehabilitation, outpatient rehabilitation and pediatric rehabilitation. Physical therapy experience has made her love for personal training and helping others a top priority. She is excited to help you achieve your fitness goals.
To give people the knowledge on how to live a fit life style by teaching the fundamentals of healthy living and exercise.
My training philosophy is based on efficiency. Your body is a machine that works together and the more efficiently it works then the better the results. If your body can't move right then you won't be as efficient and won't see the results you want.
My work with you will help you get the results. I will provide you with both the specific knowledge and physical experience necessary for reaching your strength, fitness, and weight loss goals. By the end of our first session, you will immediately begin to notice improvement.
Before any personal trainer loads you up with weights to strength train, your body must be prepared to work towards functional performance that allows correct form using only body weight. Putting an extra load on without an awareness of your muscle imbalances will only cement the dysfunctional movement.
I train people like I would like to be treated! I give them a push but I don't scream! I understand how to push people past what they think they are capable of without pissing them off but still maintaining ambition to succeed!
Finishing your first marathon, half marathon or 5K can be one of the greatest experiences and accomplishments of your life. The road to this accomplishment can be challenging and can often be derailed by injury. Marathons, half-marathons, 5Ks and other extreme endurance sports require higher volumes of training that can often aggravate pre-existing postural and muscular imbalances. Fortunately, these injuries can often be prevented through a personalized, proactive muscular endurance, strengthening and flexibility program that works in concert with your cardiovascular training to help you arrive at the start line both fit and injury-free. Each program includes: - regular strength, flexibility and balance training sessions - endurance training program design, monitoring and adjustment as needed - nutrition guidance for peak performance and/or weight loss Each program is tailored for the individual. Laurie Lasseter is uniquely qualified to work with you to create such a program and achieve your endurance event goals. With over 28 years of Fitness Industry experience and over 35 years of Endurance Running experience, completing 30 marathons (including 3 Boston Marathons and all 6 World Marathon Majors) and numerous other distance events, Laurie has used these methods to help clients achieve injury-free marathon completions, marathon time goals and Boston-Qualifying marathon efforts. Training injuries can often be prevented through a personalized, proactive muscular endurance, strengthening and flexibility program that works in concert with your cardiovascular training to help you arrive at the start line of your event both fit and injury-free.
I believe that being healthy can and should be fun, and achievable for everyone! That's what I love to do for every one of my clients.
I've also worked as a fitness and martial arts instructor in various health club and school environments. I infused various martial arts elements into his training style. My intrinsic approach has assisted many of my clients to have a healthier lifestyle, look better and improve their self-esteem.
I am a true believer in functional training. I use equipment such as bosu's, med balls, body bars dumbbells and so forth. The difference in hiring me as your trainer is that I truly listen to your goals and needs and will design the training to meet your goals. I care about your results and strive to achieve them with you. My knowledge of over 30 years of experience in the fitness world with provide you with variety and up to date new trends in fitness.
