Unlock Your Full Potential with Personal Training

We believe the best results come with expert guidance, encouragement and a plan. Whatever has been holding you back, it’s time for you to RISE! If you're looking for personal training in Grand Rapids, this is the core of what Phoenix Training does. We have personal trainers to fit every personality type and schedule. 

Frequently Asked Questions

No matter your fitness level, even if you’re starting out or starting over, we are here to help you achieve your goals. We love helping beginners just as much as anyone else. Women, men, even youth! (We specialize in youth from 8-18). Want to improve your golf game? Want to learn to use a barbell for the first time? Want to tackle some big fears? Never stepped foot in a gym before? Have an injury or physical limitation that you want to move better with? We got you!

Because of the personal nature of our coaching, our training will look very different from one person to the next. We will evaluate your goals, fitness level, and what you enjoy to develop the best programming for you! We have the passion and experience to work with YOU! Whether you want to improve your overall quality of life and feel better in your body, lift weights for the first time, learn new skills, improve cardiovascular health, or hit new personal records. We believe there’s no better stress relief than a great workout!

We LOVE functional fitness, resistance training, weightlifting, Olympic lifting, sports performance, and balance/stability training. We believe the key to longevity is a functional body that can move and have fun and be strong. YES, we do cardio, but if you’re looking for 45 minutes of burpees or a cardio machine, we are not it.  

At Phoenix Training, we work as a team. In doing so, we can better accommodate any changes to your schedule. If you prefer consistency with one trainer at a particular time slot, we got you. Have a flexible schedule and like working with different trainers? We do that, too! Our trainers regularly communicate about clients, their goals, and their progress, so you can be sure whomever you work with will be up to date with your specific programming and progress.

During your first session, we will walk you through a fitness assessment and health history to better personalize your experience. We will chat about your goals, your time investment, and how we can best serve you to meet your needs. While there will be more talking and repetition during this assessment, you will definitely feel like you’ve had a workout!

This session is the perfect time to discuss old injuries, health concerns, range of motion or chronic pain issues, etc, with your trainer. We would rather have too much information than not enough. If you are in doubt, tell your trainer. Our studio provides a semi-private to private environment to help you feel as comfortable as possible. From there, we will make a training plan for you and talk about nutrition, sleep, stress, and all those other ingredients that are part of the secret sauce of success! Our goal is for you to leave feeling excited, a little sweaty, and most of all, ENCOURAGED. Your courage brought you in the door – that’s something to celebrate! Now let’s tackle those GAINS!

Comfortable clothes, clean sneakers, and an open mind! While we recommend bringing water with you, we have complimentary water and sweat towels.  We also have a fully stocked bathroom and shower in case you need to change or de-sweat before your next meeting or appointment. 

We also always have shirts, energy drinks, protein shakes, and snacks for purchase!

Everyone has a place at Phoenix Training, and that includes your kids! If you don’t have childcare, your kids are welcome at the studio with free internet access, art supplies, and toys. We never want kids to be the EXCUSE for missing your workout. We want them to be the REASON you come workout. We understand some days it just means they need to come with you. 

For some children, being with their parents might be more enjoyable (and for the parents too!).  In that case, we are happy to do a parent-child duo session for the same price as your regular session.  

(Please note, Phoenix Training and staff are not responsible for your child’s safety. We do our best to provide a safe and fun environment for kids, but all parents must sign a liability waiver for any children they may bring.)

All you have to do is create a free account on our site and schedule your FREE consult.  

We would love for you to see the gym, get a feel for our environment, discuss your goals, previous experience, and tell us about yourself! We’ll match you with a coach (or team of coaches), a schedule that works for you, and create a plan based on your goals. Consultations last approximately 30 minutes and do not involve any exercising.

We offer semi-private training sessions at your request. Have a bestie or partner you like to workout with and want to reduce the cost of a personal training session? Someone who challenges you and brings out the best in you? Want to work out with your partner or your family? Let’s get you booked together! We will customize the workouts based on the number in your party, fitness levels, and goals as best as we can to accommodate each person in your group. Contact Sarah for pricing. 

Yes, we work with small businesses around Grand Rapids to provide small group private training sessions. They are great for team building and to encourage healthy life choices for your employees. Reach out via our consult form and get a conversation started with us today!
