Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas.

Alongside a skilled team of workout mentors, personal trainer Chad Lee channels a bachelor's degree in exercise science and fifteen years of experience to guide clients through a four-week program designed to sleekify physiques. Patrons tour the facilities during an initial fitness consultation and assessment before a weigh-in, body fat measurement, and optional 'before' picture or wood etching begins to chart progress. During the impact sessions’ metabolic resistance training, attendees tone up with bodyweight exercises, such as dumbbell presses that build biceps. Yoga poses, split squats, and reps on different machines keep drills dynamic, and each timed interval can adjust its intensity to suit most fitness levels, from people who workout infrequently, to people who jog, bike, or triathlon to work. Classes take place in Premier's private indoor gym and never exceed 14 students.
In addition to their workouts, participants receive instructions for routines on off-days and access to a lifestyle modification video series, which steers viewers through posture training. A 36-week food and exercise journal tracks progress beyond the program for maintaining healthy habits and keeping a record of which food were flirting with you at the salad bar.
ACE-certified personal trainer Chad Lee knows that most people need more than encouraging words to keep up with a new fitness regimen. That's why he and his staff consult with their clients to determine each one's reason for taking on private, partner, or small-group training sessions at Premier Fitness. Once they've isolated distinct goals, they customize workouts and dietary advice around the patron's medical history, lifestyle, and adaptation to exercise routines. An ever-present sense of humor buoys their lessons, eliminating boredom and increasing laughter without unsafe tickle fights between bench presses.
Chad specializes in metabolic circuit training for weight management and has championed a Drop a Pant or Dress Size program for a well-rounded attack on surplus pounds. Inside the gym's private facilities, he mixes squats, body-weight maneuvers, and yoga poses into a challenging cocktail of cardio and strength training. The 28-day group camp series also includes nutritional guidance and at-home fitness resources, allowing students to become self-sufficient monitors of their health.
