"Get In Shape For Women" Offers Personalized Training

Friday, August 01, 2008

Get In Shape For Women in Eastgate Plaza at 20 Main St., has been open since Feb. 1 and recently celebrated its grand opening. This personalized training facility offers a 12-week transformation program for busy women in a comfortable facility with all the tools they need to succeed.

At Get In Shape For Women, clients can work out in small groups with a personal trainer for as little as $19 a session.

Manager Michael Desnoyers says Get In Shape differs from other facilities, as far as he knows, because it's the only single group training program in the country that offers women personalized training sessions at a fraction of the cost of other competitors, which can range from $50 to $80 per session.

Desnoyers said Get In Shape specializes in "transitioning" - taking clients from a deconditioned and unhealthy state to conditioned and healthy by monitoring four variables: * Weight training to increase muscle tone and metabolism.

* Cardiovascular training to burn fat and calories faster.

* Nutrition to learn the proper way to eat and control weight.

* Accountability; they check weight and measure body fat every two weeks to establish a baseline and ensure results.

"When you reach your goal, maintenance is easier if you continue the behavior that got you there," said Desnoyers. "therwise, it's natural for the body to return to its previous state, fall away from the goals you've set.

"The equation doesn't change anywhere you go, it's just a matter of staying on top of it and staying accountable." "Once our clients achieve their goal, our goal is to migrate them into a gym setting where they can maintain their gains and hold themselves accountable." Desnoyers has a Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science and health fitness from Bridgewater State College, where he was in the honors program for three years. He works with the clients together with Mark Ferrara, a personal trainer/nutrition consultant.

Clients schedule their 60 minute appointments. The typical client makes three to five visits a week, said Desnoyers.

"The greatest thing about this model is that we're able to offer personal training at a fraction of a cost of others. The ladies seem to have fun out there. It's as fun an atmosphere as possible.

"A lot of people go to the gym for a long time without being monitored and don't achieve the results they desire. People are always going to fall off a little but monitoring them helps pull them back in," says Desnoyers.

Clients go through their workouts to a cue CD that keeps everyone on track. Ferrara supervises their breathing, form and technique to progress people and help them push their bodies. The usual session is an hour.

Desnoyers says business and the response has been good. The facility has a variety of different machines that allow clients to perform different functions such as free weights, functional training stations and a polymetric box that really develops the lower half of the body and of course, treadmills.

Desnoyers enjoys his work because it's what he always wanted to do and he enjoys interacting with the clients. "I knew what I wanted to do five years ago. Sports, health and fitness have been my whole life. That's why I went to school, so I could help people achieve these goals for themselves." Get In Shape For Women has hours from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
