You want to take care of your health to feel confident, and strong, proud of yourself, to stop the ‘all or nothing’ cycle and to finally take control of your health. To say YES to life and never feel like you’re being held back. To feel confident in a bathing suit instead of hiding in the shade. To feel GOOD.
We get it. You understand your health is important, and you want to give your best self to your family and your career, but you’re busy. You don’t have time to sift through all the information out there, leaving you tired and confused and going back to bad habits.
You need something different. What you need is a step-by-step action plan that is customized for your specific needs, not another list of someone else’s ‘eat this, not that food rules and cookie cutter fitness routine. You want a place where you belong.
And that’s exactly what we do.
We specialize in providing personalized fitness, nutrition and lifestyle coaching for everyday men and women, primarily between 35 and 70 years old, who want to love the way they feel again. We offer Ascend Lifestyle Performance, our most popular and comprehensive lifestyle coaching package, as well as the fitness focused ‘Lite’ Personal Training Package. Our programs are designed to give you the guidance and tools to make a true lifestyle change, in a warm, positive and non-intimidating family like community you’ll call home.
Personal program design based around your unique body, your current fitness level and your goals. Programs include corrective and postural exercises, resistance training, cardio training and mobility training. Programs are updated regularly to progress you safely and effectively toward your goals. Every session is coached to ensure correct form, instruction on proper equipment use, keep you safe and motivate you to do your best.
You’re busy, and the last thing you need or want to do is spend hours in the gym to get results! Your session will focus on challenging but appropriate strength training to help you burn fat, build lean muscle tone, and improve your strength. Each session incorporates tailored cardio training to boost your metabolism. You’ll be in and out and back to your day in within an hour.
There’s no ‘gymtimidation’ at Ascend. From the moment you walk in, you’ll be welcomed to the Ascend family. We have amazingly supportive members who encourage each other along the way. Connect with others at the studio, in our private Facebook page, or participate in our hikes, health seminars and community events. Between coaching sessions, read our health and fitness tips on our blog, listen to our podcast, or enjoy our other resources online.
This is where the magic happens! During your biweekly or monthly progress sessions, we’ll celebrate successes, bust through barriers and challenges and create a short-term action plan to help you reach your goals. Each month we track your progress so you can see your improvements. Whether you are here at the studio of away on vacation or travel, we’ll make sure you have a plan to follow to reach your goals. Let’s do this together!
They say exercise is one step forward, but a poor diet is two steps back. Nutrition matters! In our Lifestyle Performance Program you’ll have 1-1 nutrition and lifestyle coaching with our nutrition coaches for a customized program to meet your unique needs. All of our programs include access to our member success manual, complete with recipes, our “10 Golden Rules” of healthy eating for for fat loss and sustained energy.
Our training sessions start as early as 5:30AM on weekday mornings and go until 7:30PM at night. Many of our members have shift work, or have meetings and other appointments that happen from time to time. With our flexible scheduling, you can book the same time each week, or change from week to week, whichever is the most convenient for you!
