Tony Whitney 

Head Trainer | ACE Certified, BS Exercise Physiology, TRX Certfied, BodyPump & Silver Sneakers Certified

 

Training Philosophy: Work hard, train hard equals results. Give it your all and reap the benefits. 

 

What Clients Can Expect: To train properly using good technique. To be challenged physically and mentally. Clients can also find comfort in knowing that they are in good hands with a trainer with a lot of knowledge and skill.  I specialize in training athletes (being a former one myself), to bodybuilders, or just a person trying to get in shape and lose weight.

 

Hours Available: Open to close, Monday - Saturday.

Training can range from Olympic and Power Lifting to lower intensity exercises for beginners. I believe in maintaining a professional yet light hearted environment so the work will get done and we will have a good time getting it done.
