CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The gym wasn't always Cassie's favorite place to be, but after losing 70 pounds, she credits her success to her personal trainer and the supportive environment at her neighborhood Charter Fitness.
"When you are overweight and self-conscious, [the gym] is not exactly your favorite place to be," said Cassie, who started training with her personal trainer, Mike, about 8 months ago. "Even though it was my own determination to shed the weight, it was Mike's program of weight training and cardio routines that got me to where I am today," Cassie added.
Charter Fitness requires its personal trainers to not only hold a certification or four-year degree in a related field, but also successfully complete an in-house Personal Training Program which provides education on assessment protocol, custom program design, and cardiovascular programming. Every training program at Charter Fitness is custom-developed for each client.
