Small Group Training

Small group fitness training is the sweet spot of keeping the fitness experience large enough to be fun and interactive while small enough to maintain the quality of modifications and progressions specific to individuals. 

A group of six participants will work with a certified personal trainer; small group training takes place in our private personal training studio.
