Personal Training at the JCCNV

Think about this: 70% of Americans begin an exercise program and in less than 3 months, 80% of them quit. More importantly, 80% of all health club memberships are never used. Interestingly, 85% of individuals who have a personal trainer maintain their regimen.
The JCCNV Personal Training program will provide you with the motivation and direction you need to achieve your health and fitness goals! After an initial evaluation to establish your baseline health and fitness level, your program will be designed to meet your individual needs — whether that’s weight loss, recovering from an injury or surgery, cardiovascular fitness, strength training, or just general health and fitness.

Your personal trainer:

  • designs a workout program specifically for you, regardless of experience
  • demonstrates movements and ensures proper form
  • answers your questions and monitors progress
  • adjusts your workout as your needs change and your abilities grow
  • provides workout variety to help alleviate boredom, avoid plateaus, and prevent injury

The JCCNV Sports, Fitness & Aquatics Department offers a variety of personal training packages to meet your needs. From TRX training and small group sessions, to packages for beginner exercises or rehabilitation from an injury — choose the package and the trainer that’s right for you!

“I love exercising with Kasha… After two and a half years of training together, we have become great friends! Knowing I have a weekly appointment to see her provides me with the motivation to put in the gym-time by myself. I know that if I don’t work out on days without her, I won’t be able to keep up with the workout she has planned for me at our next meeting.She sets reasonable goals that motivate me to work my hardest, and it is rewarding to reach those goals. Having worked out with Kasha throughout pregnancy with my second child, I believe that keeping in shape made my delivery easier, less painful, AND I’ve had an easier time fitting into my pre-pregnancy
jeans!” — Samantha, 35
