Hello! I'm owner & Lead Trainer Wally Baskovich [BIO], certified through the NATIONAL ACADEMY of SPORTS MEDICINE, an industry leader in Fitness Certifications. CERTIFIED in: {CPT. FNS (Fitness Nutrition Specialist). High Intensity Interval Training for Women. Weight-loss. Cardio & Bodyweight Training for Women. Core Conditioning. Corrective Exercise. Neuromuscular Stretching. Integrated Injury Prevention. Cardiorespiratory Training for Sports Performance. Maximum Interval Training.}  Plus many other disciplines.   

So WHY am I a fitness Trainer? Because I truly believe that if a person has been blessed with a gift, that before God they MUST give back to society by teaching/training others what they have learned. 

 

When choosing a PROFESSIONAL FITNESS TRAINER, the deciding factor should be their experience, and that experience must transcend the norm in the fitness industry. And to add to that, the trainer/coach MUST have the ability to communicate that experience to the individual, or time and money will be wasted.  WE DELIVER!


When you exercise, make each movement count, for it is not all about the repetitions you do, but how EFFECTIVE it is. No need to spend hours exercising (unless a competitive athlete) , it is always best to MAXIMIZE THE TIME you spend working out, by doing what is proven to be the best per Sports-Science.

We do Personal Training in a small group like non-intimidating atmosphere with great camaraderie, and motivated people who push and inspire each other - enjoy up-beat & emotive music.

I've had the pleasure of being able to influence lives in the area of Fitness & Nutrition for over 50 years, a life-experience only imagined by most.   

MY PASSION is my PURPOSE; and a person's Quality of Life is truly important to me - as I know it most certainly is for you. 

We strive to "Make the Impossible Possible" - to help you attain a happier, healthier, more confident, and vibrant life - to help you become a better version of yourself.  


My background includes, but is not limited to: 

Being trained in CALISTHENICS as a youth by an AAU 3 time FLYING RING Gold Medalist (my father). I also was also highly trained in CIRCUIT TRAINING  & NEGATIVE MOVEMENTS TRAINING under a Mr. Gary S. who worked directly beside Dr. Arthur Jones, who was the inventor of Nautilus Gym Equipment, who became world famous with his specific Circuit Training that  has been used by Athletes World-wide and by people and Gyms everywhere. In addition, I also trained MARTIAL ARTS under various Masters, but specifically recognizing being under Master Ric Martin who won the  1995 Uechi-ryu  Championship in  Okinawa.


I have also pretty much mastered the art of NEGATIVE & ISOMETRIC training, the true foundation of strength - used by Professional Athletes & Martial Art Masters World-wide (one reason Bruce Lee was known for his amazing strength, even at only around 137 lbs.) - also what Physical Therapists use (but on a much different degree)

This type training is  virtually a lost art in gyms and with trainers; but this is how we have helped people in our studio with difficulties such as Strokes to move and walk around again; and help those that never did a Push-up or Pull-up to do so at our facility.


I have also followed the teachings of  CHARLES ATLAS who created 'DYNAMIC TENSION' in the 1950's, now typically called, Isometrics). JACK LaLANNE ("the godfather of fitness" as named by Arnold Schwarzenegger). And of course, BRUCE LEE'S exercise routines. And as mentioned earlier, my father​ Wally Sr. who was a 3 time AAU Gold Medalist on the Flying Rings, and 2 time U.S. Amputee Golf Champion. These are/were my heroes, mentors, and inspiration. 


We humbly believe we are one of the best; as we have long-time practical experience, and endeavor to help and guide each and every person to have the knowledge they need, so that they can carry that experience and information with them for the rest of their lives.  All routines are Science backed giving you a well-balanced & stronger body.

HELPING REGULAR PEOPLE ACHIEVE EXTRAORDINARY RESULTS

BENEFITS OF A PROFESSIONAL TRAINER / COACH

Train With Purpose By Adding Structure to Your Workouts With a Professional Trainer.

Your body doesn’t betray you as you get older; most often than not, YOU betray your body!


A qualified personal fitness coach / trainer can help you safely start and maintain an effective exercise regiment and understands your 'fitness goals' to help you achieve them. A personal trainer can be a great source of motivation and encouragement, as well as a resource for the latest objective health and fitness information.  When choosing a professional fitness coach/trainer the deciding factor should be their experience, and that experience must transcend the norm in the fitness industry. And to add to that, the trainer/coach MUST have the ability to communicate that experience to the individual or time and money will be wasted.  


Fitness At Its Best! Ever know anyone that went to the gym and hit the weights, machines, and Group Classes for years, yet never REALLY changed significantly? Then others, within a short time, have a total transformation.  Here is an example of why: The majority of people that take up a hobby/sport such as Golf, Tennis, Running, etc. never use a trainer. Year after year they struggle to improve their game but only do so in small increments. 

Most every one of the people in this example try year after year to break 100 or even 90 in Golf, or endeavor to play Tennis at a higher level, or Run a 10k in a respectable time, yet never do. When a person takes up a sport or exercise, in order to see significant results in a much shorter period of time, they (almost without exception) MUST hire a coach/trainer to be sure they are executing the techniques correctly. 


A trainer turns weaknesses into strengths; they will ‘SEE’ what that person could NEVER see on their own. That's why every professional athlete has a coach/trainer no matter how 'great' they may be – to always take their game to a higher level and to keep it that way.  A person that utilizes a ‘Professional’ and Highly-Experienced Trainer (that has lived what they preach for at least 5-10 years) will almost without exception, attain their goals extraordinarily fast and safe – going to a level of fitness that would be almost impossible to attain on their own. 


Respectfully, trainers that have worked out only a few years and then start training others do NOT have the proper experience; it takes YEARS to develop the skills, experience, knowledge, and wide-range of applicable abilities to PROPERLY train another person. 


For instance; if a trainer is a male weightlifter (and that is his main knowledge source) and tries to train a female that wants to tone and lose weight, or someone has physical limitations or past injuries of which proper care is needed, that trainer will most inevitably NOT be able to help them, and most likely will cause injury. DO utilize a trainer, but pick wisely.
