Personal Training


The goal of our Personal Trainers is to help you learn to exercise effectively and safely, achieve your fitness goals, and develop a sense of pride in your accomplishments. Our trainers don't just teach you how to use machines, they teach you how to reach inside yourself, discover your potential, and make your fitness goals a reality. They focus equally on the mental and physical aspects of fitness, which is crucial for long-term success.

Why Personal Training?

If this is your first time in a gym setting, the equipment may seem intimidating. A personal trainer can guide you through the facility, showing you the proper technique for each piece of equipment. You might be returning to the gym after a period of inactivity and want a personal trainer to ease you back into a workout regimen with your health and safety in mind. Perhaps you have a specific goal in mind. In that case, a personal trainer can help you string exercises together for the most beneficial workout to target your individual goals. Maybe you just need some encouragement or you need someone to hold you accountable for your progress at the gym! Whatever the case may be, VSPC has very educated, enthusiastic, and supportive personal trainers who are here to help you realize your fitness goals. Stop by today and consult with our friendly personal trainers!

Cardio Respiratory Training

Give your heart a regular beating ...

How do you know if you're performing the correct cardio respiratory regimen needed to get the most out of your workout? Make every minute count by having a Personal Trainer teach you the proper frequency, intensity, and type of cardio respiratory exercise you need to achieve your fitness goals.

Dietary Supplementation

Complementing your food intake with proper dietary supplementation will allow you to get more out of your fitness program. Food supplementation gives your body the nutrition it needs without increasing your caloric intake. We recommend you consult one of our certified trainers before using any supplementation.

Resistance Training

Redefine Yourself: Did you know that the more muscle you have the more fat you will burn? An individualized resistance training progression program helps you burn calories, build muscle, and increase strength. Hands-on training sessions will teach you how to properly perform the exercise specific to your fitness goals.
