A few weeks later she was attending 3 personal training sessions per week as well as attending the Fit4Life class on Saturdays.

Aaron began his fitness journey in high school when he started running track. Soon Aaron and his friends began training together where they worked as a team to create new exercises and to keep each other motivated. The enjoyment he felt from those experiences influenced Aaron to want to help others find the workout regime that provided them the opportunity to feel that same joy.
Atlas is helping Aaron continue his love of fitness by offering him the chance to explore some of the many different fitness training options. He is working with Mike (the owner and head coach) to become Atlas’s youth sports conditioning program’s lead trainer. His ability to connect with our youth sports clients while keeping conditioning sessions focused, challenging, and fun is a testament to his talent as a trainer and the joy he finds helping others achieve their goals.
Soon, Aaron will also start co-teaching our weekly boxing class – 3Rounds.
