Redefining Personal Training

Healthy Results provides personal training in more than just the traditional sense. We go beyond the “one-on-one” session.

Traditional Personal Training: Regular weekly sessions, being guided through each strength training or cardio coaching workout, side by side with a degreed Personal Trainer. Sessions are available. Initial consultation required to get started. We do not offer packages.

Program Personal Training: Set up an initial consultation and find out how much guidance you truly need with your workout programs. You may only need to meet with a degreed Personal Trainer monthly, quarterly or every six months! If you are independently motivated and just want your current program revamped occasionally, injury risk assessed and a new program developed, programs with built in progressions, then sign up now!

Personal Training by Skype:  Healthy Results now offers personal training in your home, from your hotel room when you travel, or anywhere that is convenient for you via Skype or Gchat.  Getting exercise into your busy daily schedule can be challenging.  Training by Skype is one way to simplify your life, reduce the private fee of personal training yet still reap the benefits of an individualized workout.

Testimonial re: personal training via SKYPE
I have greatly enjoyed, and greatly benefitted from, being a Healthy Results client for many years. So when my work schedule no longer worked with our personal training schedule, I looked for a way to continue training with the Healthy Results team. We decided to try internet-enabled personal training (using Skype) and it’s been terrific. I use the basic equipment in my home and Robyn directs and encourages my workout just as she does in the gym. It never fails to impress me that she can see and make the smallest adjustments to ensure proper form (and keep me honest) during each rep! I am so pleased with this solution, enjoy using this technology in a new way, and most importantly I continue to see great results from our sessions.  – Diane K

Personal Training — One-on-One Exercise Instruction

One-on-one exercise sessions allow for very individualized personal professional fitness coaching, which mainly focus on strength training, but can also include flexibility, cardiovascular, core and balance training. Our thorough health, fitness and body composition screening includes: posture analysis, movement analysis, weight, body composition (body fat %, circumferences and BMI measured) analyses, discussion of exercise and health history, exercise and activity preferences, goals both long term and short term, following sessions are then designed with your individual goals based on your current fitness and health status. We meet you where you are at and take you to where you want to go.

Personal Cardiovascular Training by Heart Rate

Sign up for this program and in 30 minutes your estimated maximum heart rate will be determined by a sub-maximum heart rate test. This will maximize your workout programs as they can now be tailored according to your heart rate.

This model can be ideal for those who require strength training and cardiovascular fitness per a physician’s prescription. Note: Clients with specific health needs are required to bring the physician’s assessment referral form with them.

Clients find this model of highly individualized attention and personal accountability to the trainer to be motivating.
