MEET THE TEAM
Conditioning Specialists features top-tier trainers who are hand-picked based on their education and experience. At most clubs, personal trainers go through a weekend seminar and are then granted the title “personal trainer”. Is this who you want to trust your body to? Our trainers all hold multiple national and/or international certifications and many possess college degrees in health and fitness related areas. You only have one body, make sure the person helping you take care of it is an expert and not just the first person to fill out the application for the job.
