Lifelong athlete Scott Umberger's love for fitness developed while he was working toward a Division I scholarship to Robert Morris University, where he competed in track and football. After going on to train award-winning and Olympic athletes, he decided to open his own gym, and paired up with Pepsi Hutton. Pepsi relies heavily on fitness to feel good as she battles cystic fibrosis, which ultimately led her to become an AFAA-certified personal trainer and kinesiology professor to help others learn how to feel good. Together at Fusion Workouts, they helm a team of certified trainers who strive to help clients of all abilities reach their fitness goals at their own pace.
With a functional approach to fitness, they draw from boot-camp classes, personal-training sessions, and circuit training to develop their ever-changing total-body workouts. They motivate their charges to slim their waistlines and boost their strength by swinging kettlebells, hurling sandbags, and flipping tires end over end until they agree to go back and chase their true passion—life on the road. Taking into account each client's health and fitness history, they customize each exercise to accommodate beginners, seasoned athletes, and new mothers alike.
The trainers at Club Cappella specialize in what they deem personalized training. That means, that instead of running awkward one-on-one sessions or leaving clients to fend for themselves in group classes, they find a happy medium. Each member receives a custom program designed to help them hit their weight-loss and fitness goals, and begins training side-by-side with a group of other similarly-minded club members. During each session, a personal trainer will split their time between providing focused attention to individuals and leading fun group-based exercises.
Club Cappella's personalized approach blends the focused attention of personal training with the motivation and camaraderie of group fitness, but they're far from one-size fits all. A variety of specialized programs are also available and includes rehabilitation after injury, programs designed specifically for youth through seniors, and sports-specific training for athletes.
