Q: How is HealthStyle Fitness Different?

A: We realize that sometimes it’s difficult for the consumer to distinguish between personal trainers, facilities and fitness options. The unfortunate truth is simply that the fitness industry is complete unregulated today. In the state of Ohio, a person can become and practice the science of personal training without any credentials. So essentially someone can create, implement and take you through a training program with no background, college degree, certification, experience or qualification.

The Trainers: Our training staff is known throughout the industry and collaborates on a daily basis with the most respected fitness & nutrition experts in the nation, including Kelli Calabrese, Phil Kaplan, Dr. Chris Mohr, Jonathan Ross, Brian Schiff, among many others. Our network of Registered Dieticians, Physical Therapists, Leading Fitness Professionals and Doctors allow us to continually aspire to and acquire the highest level of knowledge with the sole purpose of delivering the most safe, effective and stimulating programs to all of our clients.

We go well beyond counting repetitions; our goal is to educate and empower you for life, so you can take complete control over you health, fitness and weight loss success. Our passion is helping you.

Private Studio: The HealthStyle Fitness Personal Training Studio is a 'home away from home' private studio that is not your typical crowded gym. The atmosphere here is very different.

Because you are always with your own personal trainer, there is never a 'crowd' watching or people wandering around wasting time. We cater to clients who are serious about improving their overall health, reducing weight and stress levels and reaping the benefits of living a healthier lifestyle. 

As a result, our environment is motivating and non-intimidating. We work hard to inspire our clients to pursue realistic goals--goals that can fit into each person's schedule and way of life.

Our Company: We can also promise you this... your experience with HealthStyle Fitness will be far different than what you are used to.

Today, there are very few businesses we encounter that seem to know how to treat their customers and clients... and when you do come across a company that does, it's definitely a pleasant surprise, rather than the norm.

We all enjoy when a business or company goes above and beyond to serve us. It gives us a sense that we are appreciated and wanting to not only do business with them again, but also tell everyone about how special they are...

The staff at HealthStyle Fitness strives to give you that same level of service... to help you look and feel great... we hope that you'll be so thrilled that you'll want to tell all your friends and family about your great experience!

Q: What will I be doing in each Session?

You'll meet with your small group and Brian every 2 weeks. Each time you get together, Brian will share new educational insights regarding nutrition and results oriented exercise and your program will move to the next phase. Then Brian will walk you, step by step, through your new routine that you'll incorporate for the next 2 weeks. With each session you become more empowered and results begin to manifest.

Q: Are you going to make me look like a body builder?

A: Not a chance.

You will build some lean, toned muscle as you train, and your body will change positively as a result.

We start the CFT Program with the Foundational Nutrition Workshop where we teach you everything that you need to know about eating the right foods with the right frequency to elevate metabolism and lose significant body fat. All participants are given full access to the leading online nutritional software system that ensures they are getting the right balance of nutrients for their individual goals (click here to view the demo). Our approach has lead to literally over one thousands weight loss successes throughout greater Cincinnati...and best of all, it’s a simple and easy program to follow once you get started. In fact, in a few short months, it just becomes a part of what you do and you'll never feel deprived. 

We are also excited to let you know that after much research, several failed attempts, and more searching and testing, we have created a partnership with PurFoods Fitness to deliver healthy, nutrient rich and great tasting meals to your home. This is an optional service for all clients, but one in very high demand. Click here to learn about Cincinnati's Healthy Nutrition & Food Delivery Service.

Q: How long is each session?

A: The CFT small group sessions range between 1-hour to 21/2 hours depending on the phase of the program.

A: Wear what you’re comfortable wearing. Most clients train in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. Some wear sweats. It doesn't matter as long as you feel comfortable.

Q: I feel a little nervous about getting started, I have never done anything like this before.

A: That's completely understandable.
