Why Hire A Personal Trainer?
When you hire a personal trainer, you are not just purchasing their physical presence and guidance through your workouts, but also their education, experience, knowledge and expertise with program development and design.
Our bodies have more than 200 bones, over 600 muscles and approximately 230 moveable and semi-moveable joints.
Let's face it, our bodies are extremely complex!
Personal trainers have been educated in these complexities and therefore, are uniquely qualified to help you achieve your physical fitness goals as safely and quickly as possible. In addition, Personal Trainers are continuously re-educating themselves to make sure they keep up to date with the latest and greatest fitness programs, exercises and techniques, while distinguishing between the fitness marketing hype.

From Dimitris: "Fitness is more about how you feel than how you look. I believe that traditional methods of training, a healthy diet, and a positive attitude are all that is needed to live a long and happy life. I like to keep things simple, and rather than dazzle my clients with dance moves, I use my experience to tune into what their body needs specifically and teach them life long exercise routines that will not only provide them with a beautiful physique, but keep them motivated and interested in their own personal fitness."
