Personal Training

If you’re looking for an experienced and professional personal trainer who will actually care about your goals and results, then look no further.

Currently I am offering the following services:

In-Home Personal Training

There is no need to go to a gym you feel uncomfortable in or don’t like going to. Many people prefer exercising in private and in the comfort of their own home. This is where I come in.

I have been training my clients in their own homes for the last 10 years and have learned the following reasons that you might want to workout in your home.

  • You hate going to a gym
  • You belong to a gym and never go
  • You have no idea what you are doing once you get to the gym
  • You have been doing the same exercise routine for as long as you can remember
  • You are not getting any results
  • You prefer to exercise in the comfort of your own home

The great thing about in-home training is that the gym comes to you!

Consider the following benefits:

  • A trainer to hold you accountable
  • You workout on your schedule
  • All equipment is provided
  • You do not need to step foot in a gym
  • You will learn how to exercise properly in a non gym environment

Villages of Urbana Fitness Center

I am also working with clients who live in The Villages of Urbana and am available to train in the Shafer’s Mill Recreation Center. The address is 9228 Shafer’s Mill Drive.

So, You Wanna Train?

Let me say this; I’ve trained hundreds of people ranging from morbidly obese women to men training for the Ironman and there is one thing that I see repeatedly, which is the cause for failure.

And that’s commitment.

I’m not here to convince anyone that they need to exercise or that they need to hire a trainer. That is something that comes from within. When someone is ready and committed to making a permanent life change is when they can accomplish their goals.

My philosophy is this: If you are not 100% committed to reaching your physical goals, then you are better off finding a trainer who is fine with that. I truly have no interest in just collecting a paycheck while watching you half-ass it in the gym or eating junk food when you get home.

Again, it’s all about commitment!

You’re probably thinking that if someone is willing to plunk down a substantial amount of money on training fees, then they must be committed…Not so. There are plenty of folks out there who have significant amounts of discretionary income and are in love with the idea of having a trainer but not in love with all the work it takes to make a change.

Becoming A Client

Once a client, you can expect me to design a flexibility, strength and cardiovascular exercise program with your specific goals in mind. The premise is to progressively challenge your fitness level and not exceed your capabilities. Too often I see trainers pushing their clients into doing the ‘exercise of the day’ or into something that is beyond their current ability. This is an injury waiting to happen.

I will monitor and adjust your exercise plan as needed and offer nutritional guidance as well. I am not a registered dietitian but know enough about healthy eating to offer suggestions on how to improve your eating habits.

Frequent communication is vital and clients should be prepared for frequent discussions. I have found that this also helps with keeping the client motivated and accountable.

Getting Started

Right now, I am available to travel with Frederick County and my rates work on a sliding scale. Contact Steve at 301-712-6706, email, or via my contact page for more information.

I look forward to working with you soon!
