Anyone who has ever joined a gym knows it can be an intimidating, impersonal experience. While a personal trainer sounds great, it can be hard to find the right one, or the right one you can afford.
Eagle Ridge Fitness, locally owned and operated in Port Moody and Port Coquitlam, offers another option – the personal trainer experience, but in a supportive group atmosphere.
Team personal training allows clients to have attention as needed, but with a small group of people with similar goals and experiences, according to Sam Noh, owner of Eagle Ridge Fitness.
“We’re not an intimidating atmosphere. Our program is very welcoming,” he says, adding it is especially helpful for people with injuries who need modified exercise options.
All the trainers, including Noh, who has a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology, can handle a variety of injuries including knee, shoulder and lower back.
The studio offers one-on-one personal training to its clients on demand, but the core of the business is the team-training program.
The majority of studio clients are women over 40, and there are also a lot of parents in their 30s. But the fitness programs work for people of all ages, Noh says.
The studio is well known for its success stories – hundreds of people throughout the region come to Noh to lose weight, get toned and become healthier. The studio is also its own success story. Noh initially started his business in his parent’s garage, and over the past seven years it has become the longest-standing personal training studio in the area.
