Lead Trainer & Owner Wally Baskovich 2016 (64)

Hello! I'm owner & Lead Trainer Wally Baskovich, certified through the NATIONAL ACADEMY of SPORTS MEDICINE, an industry leader in Fitness Certifications. CERTIFIED in: {CPT.

A Personal Training program is only as good as the people behind it, and we humbly believe that our Personal Training Fitness Center is like no other. So come join the fun here at BODY BY WALLY Personal Fitness Training Gym in Augusta. 

At our Augusta located GYM, Personal Training is what we do; and you'll have a ‘coach’ rather than a traditional trainer. We help conquer the rigorous and sometimes confusing curriculum of 'what exercise to do, how to do it, with what intensity, how much or many, and how often'. 

Your first step towards your goal will be our benchmark assessment, which includes an in-depth medical and fitness questionnaire, body composition index, movement screen, and postural analysis. 

We'll evaluate your history, your overall fitness level, and objectives, to create your personal fitness road-map. Since needs, goals and lives change, the constant conversations we'll have between us will play a vital role in your success; because at the end of the day, it's about performing at your peak, and living your life to the fullest. 

I've had the pleasure of being able to influence lives in the area of Fitness & Nutrition for over 40 years, a life-experience only imagined by most. 

I have followed the teachings of  Charles Atlas (created 'Dynamic Tension' in the 1950's, now called Isometrics), Jack LaLanne ("the godfather of fitness" as named by Arnold Schwarzenegger), Bruce Lee's exercise routines, and 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. 

I also trained for 1.5 years under Gary S. who worked right beside Dr. Arthur Jones who invented Nautilus Gym Equipment and made Circuit & Negative Resistance Training world famous.   [CLICK PICTURE (or HERE) for Complete BIO]

  - NASM Certified Personal Trainer -

My mission is to help people improve their ability to function properly, ensuring better ongoing health, lowering risk of disease, and adding years to their life - utilizing exercises that can be used for a lifetime.

Happiness is a choice, not a result of something external - nothing will make you happy until you ‘choose’ to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you, it can only come ‘from’ you…from the inside, which can become an outlook that opens your hearts door to contentment, confidence and success. 

Every journey begins with a single step, so make your first step today and ‘choose’ to be happy with yourself. That first step must be challenging, but let that challenge change you.

I dare you to challenge yourself to be HAPPY!

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.
