Because I understand why people are hesitant about working with a personal trainer. I was 18 when I decided to take my personal fitness to the next level by working with a professional trainer. I remember my friend and I getting into his car, and heading to a popular gym in my town. The second I walked in, I was greeted by a guy named Tony.
Tony had a smile like a used car salesman, fuzzy caterpillar-like eyebrows and biceps like big bloated loaves of bread.
He talked to me like I was his best friend. He promised me the world and really convinced me that I could meet my goals if I worked with him.
Not knowing any better, I invested a week’s pay into signing up, just before shaking his hand and leaving.
“See you tomorrow Kevin!”
He piped after me like we’d just become best friends.
The next day, I got dressed, hopped into my car and headed to the gym where my “friend” Tony was waiting for me at the front counter.
I’ll never forget how disappointed I was to find that he didn’t even remember my name.
The warmth and enthusiasm he’d poured over me just the day before had vanished like a stack of money left on a park bench in Ybor City.
I remember feeling foolish and embarrassed for spending my money and even more foolish for believing Tony was my “friend.”
I shrugged it off and went to do my workout, but couldn’t shake the nagging doubt that I’d been had.
Since then, I’ve served dozens of clients, from the stay at home mothers to Olympic athletes.
I’ve seen, first hand, the disappointments created by well-meaning, yet “enthusiastically ignorant,” personal trainers. Many of whom had earned their certification by sitting through a 40-hour class thrown together by a “turn-em’-burn-em’-n-earn-some” certification mill. I understand the decision you’re making right now.
You’ve seen plenty of reasons why Fitness-Tek is unlike ANY other personal training studio in the Tampa Bay Area. I’ve show you why I’m 100% confident that, within the first few weeks of becoming our client, you’ll KNOW that this IS the personalized fitness solution you’ve been looking for.

So if you’re ready to get into the best shape of your life starting right now stop what you are doing and call. Your healthy lifestyle starts NOW!
