My name is Jane Torbinski, owner of Pride Fitness. I am certified by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a Personal Trainer and an Orthopedic Exercise Specialist. I discovered fitness later in life. To put it mildly, I did not have a healthy lifestyle in my younger years. As I got older I began looking at things differently. I wanted to get strong and fit and I wanted to help others do the same. After a 23 yr career I made a change and started a new career in fitness. I believe we owe it to ourselves to take control of our physical fitness. My goal is to make that easier for you to accomplish. At Pride Fitness our mission is to make fitness and healthy living a priority for all. Helping clients reach their goals and sharing in the experience is our motivation. We understand the demands of a career and family obligations, sometimes just getting to the gym is the biggest hurdle. Pride Fitness is an alternative to gym membership. You can work out where you are most comfortable, in the privacy of your own home, the park, corporate gym, coop gym, the rec center, etc.
My favorite exercise
Everything Kettlebell! And jumping rope!

I've been working with Jane for over five years, week in and week out. I had been working with trainers for many years before meeting her, but Jane is the first who really understands how our bodies change as we get older, and has been able to alter my program every week to suit my injury, energy and flexibility levels. She is continuously trying to figure out what works for me, how to engage me, and incorporates strength, flexibility and balance work seamlessly into a regimen I can adapt for my use at other times of the week. She is kind and thoughtful, and doesn't have to yell at me or scare me to get me to work hard.
I have been training with Jane for 2 years. She has helped and motivated me towards my fitness goals. Each session is different. She uses a combination of strength, agility, and cardio training. Her workouts are well rounded. She is patient and encouraging. She also takes the time to educate herself on any physical issue you as a client maybe having. She designs a training programs that are challening and creative. Weather you have been going to a gym or haven't been to one for a while and are thinking of getting a trainer, Jane is it !!
I am a senior citizen, and I began working out with Jane because I hoped to avoid the slow but steady loss of strength that typically occurs as people get older. To my delight, I actually became stronger and more muscular. Thank you, Jane!
Jane is the perfect trainer. She is knowledgeable and readily tailors the program to your needs, abilities, and limitations. She is encouraging while being attentive. If you give the effort, she will help you to meet your goals.
Had a terrific first session. Jane is perfect for me, a 71 year old woman with many goals. She specializes in us older folks, seems very knowledgeable and very understanding of an older person's limitations.. I'm looking forward to my next session!
Jane is knowledgable, professional, and communicates clearly. I learned a great deal just in the first session. Having her guidance makes me feel optimistic about attaining my goals safely. I am grateful to have her working with me and look forward to our association.
