Does Austin Simply Fit offer bootcamps or group fitness classes?
Our fitness coaches can create custom high-intensity interval training programs to help you and your friends or family burn a lot of calories in a short period of time. Ask us about our semi-private, small group training programs.
Additionally, several of our certified personal trainers have created off-site training options for the community to get extra training in an outdoor group setting. Check out Darryl Payne‘s beginner’s sprint class and John Cioffredi‘s outdoor functional fitness class.
Will strength training make me bulky?
Absolutely not. Strength training will make you stronger. Many people who strength train will lose body fat in the process. When someone is specifically trying to bulk and add mass, they must make increases in their diet to help their body grow. If you have a specific fitness or health goal in mind, our experienced certified personal trainers can help you achieve it. We’ll keep you informed and focused while we walk you through your personal fitness program every step of the way. Start your journey to improved health and book a FREE first personal training session.
Will I get injured during a private strength training session?
Strength training can help prevent injuries from happening. Our expert trainers will teach you to lift with proper form. Proper lifting technique can correct a lot of movement issues and imbalances, thus lowering your chance of injury. Our one-on-one personal training programs are designed to help you achieve your fitness goals in a safe and progressive way. Your personal trainer will be with you every step of the way.

Do I need to be an experienced weightlifter to work out with a personal trainer?
No experience is needed. We specialize in creating customized personal training programs for all fitness levels. Our fitness coaches will meet you where you are. Whether you’re a beginner stepping into the gym for the first time, someone seeking more accountability, an experienced athlete, or somewhere in between, we’ll help you reach your goals.
What do I need to do before my first personal training session?
After you have scheduled your 1-hour consultation and training session, all you need to do is come in ready to work out. We’ll take care of the rest. Each initial consultation includes a 30-minute conversation about your fitness and health goals, medical and training history, and our personal training programs. Then, start your fitness journey to the best you that you can be. Welcome to Austin Simply Fit! Be sure you confirm the location of our fitness studios.
