Transformations happen at Phoenix Personal Fitness

Comfortable.Not the first word you would associate with any experience at a gym, but Debbie Scott, personal trainer and owner of Phoenix Personal Fitness, strives to do just that.As a former bodybuilder, Scott, knows the stresses associated with bigger, franchised gyms and is determined to change the typical experience by offering clients a more personalized workout with the comforts of home in an inviting atmosphere. “It’s a great place for people who have had bad experiences in big gyms. It’s a little homier, like working out in your basement,” she said. Located at #7 1111 3 street SE, the old world charm of the brick building combines the atmosphere of a day spa with the some of the newest technology in fitness to allow clients to get a killer workout while feeling relaxed and at ease in their surroundings.A boutique featuring the newest trends in workout gear and a  juice-bar makes sure that patrons have every thing they need before any physical actvity and licensed massage therapists and acupuncturists are readily available for deep-tissue massages after a particularly rigorous session. With completely customizable personal training programs in individual, duo, or in small groups of four, there is something for everyone regardless of physical fitness levels or end goals. Highly educated trainers take the time to ensure that a fitness regime is planned around the needs of the customer to accommodate any injuries or individual restriction“Our trainers have various expertises in different areas to suit different clients’ needs and the client should get the same quality of workout whether they are working out with me or a trainer,” says Scott. Those who are desperately seeking a fitness routine that promises results are turning to the widely popular SED (strength + endurance + diet) program.

It is a small group (four people) training programs that is designed for maximum fat loss while combining weight training, cardio, and proper nutrition in an eight-week format. The self-proclaimed “jock” stresses the importance of nutrition with a mix of strength and cardio exercises.

“There are a lot of different ways to get into shape. Nutrition is a big part of whatever you do. High-intensity, circuit style workouts that incorporate a wide variety of exercises are the best to get in shape quickly.Workout boredom is combated with new equipment and changing routines. The facility is home to an assortment of some of the most state-of-the-art equipment in fitness today. The Jacob’s Ladder, which is a new form of cardio equipment that challenges users to climb in a continuous motion, (think climbing a never-ending ladder at a 90 degree incline) is utilized  for an all-over body workout in cardio intervals. The “most-hated” piece of equipment in the gym has challenged and frustrated clients so much that some have even threatened to seek out their own revenge on the dreaded machine. Choosing the facilities’ name after the self-restoring mythical creature, the Phoenix, Scott believes that everyone has the ability to reach their full-potential regardless of past trials and poor habits. 

“Every five-hundred years the phoenix rises and we want to help others think that they can too.”
