50/50 Fitness/Nutrition “A Balanced Approach to Health & Wellness
Over time, we all develop a sense of what it means to be “healthy”, either through information we read, pick up through friends or loved ones, or discover ourselves. There’s so much information out there that it’s often difficult to determine what’s right and how we should go about our lives. But we do; we make those decisions and our our lives are impacted, for better or worse. Our goal here was and is not to search for the next quick fix,, fad, or trend. In other words, we’re not looking for a cure. We’re not interested in the one solution for everyone methodology, albeit machines at a gym, a workout of the day, or the latest and greatest diet.
The core of 50/50 Fitness/Nutrition represents balance. We’re not saying you should focus half your time on this, half your time on that, etc. The truth is, very few people have balance in their lives. Everything is so intertwined and so connected that as one area suffers, others are sure to follow suit. Your body is the biggest and most prominent example of this. So with that being said, our job isn’t to simply prescribe you a new exercise or diet plan. It becomes much more than that. 50/50 represents a chance to grow, to identify problem areas, and to obtain the tools that you need to finally find that balance in your life, for the rest of your life.
Our Fitness Training Philosophy…
No two bodies are the same. Everyone reacts differently to food and activity. Subsequently, every workout and meal plan has to be geared to meet those needs. It takes more than an hour or two each week with your trainer to really see the results you crave. When we engage with you, we stay in touch throughout the week, checking in on your progress, monitoring nutrition, and helping plan physical activity outside of our sessions.
Our services go well beyond the “session” to look at the big picture, supporting you in the ways you need.
A “diet” is temporary. New habits that are healthy and personally appropriate require professional attention. When they’re carefully assembled just for you and slowly added over time, they can be sustainable for the long term.
Habits can be changed with dedication and support. It takes time, but when it’s done right, you can eat until you’re satisfied and develop changes that you can maintain.
Personal training with us is a learning experience, which will ultimately give you the tools you need to live a healthy lifestyle and feel great about it!
For these reasons, with all of our clients, we include additional services for no charge, including online diet monitoring (using a free website), nutritional guidance, and regular support. We encourage questions and make ourselves available to you as needed. We promise, you’re never in it alone!
We want to be able to help in any way we can. We believe that this is the true secret to success…having trainers who are knowledgeable and qualified to support you and to keep you working towards your goals! From all angles. Everyone deserves that chance to succeed.
To us, this is what personal training is all about.

A BALANCED APPROACH TO HEALTH AND WELLNESS
At Energia Fitness, we offer spinning — a low-impact, joint-friendly, heart-pumping work out designed to burn calories, aid in weight-loss, and build strength & muscle tone in the quads, hamstrings, and core. We encourage the use of heart rate monitors to set measurable goals, for accountability, and to track progress long-term.
Strength training is essential to any successful, well-rounded routine. We design and execute programs geared towards rehabilitation post-op or post-injury, long-term prevention and growth, and to help kick-start the metabolism for all clients, young and old.
IMPROVING FLEXIBILITY AND MOBILITY
Every new program starts with a process in place. Every process starts and ends with functional mobility. Our goal is for you to be able to move well, which means safe, pain-free range of motion before strength training and intense cardiovascular activity.
You put in tons and tons of work at the gym but you’re still unhappy with the results. Proper nutrition is half the battle. This means not only eating properly portioned meals as part of a well-balanced day, but timing your nutrient delivery in a way that makes sense. We don’t change what you eat, we teach you ways to improve the way you eat.
Our philosophy revolves around lifestyle change, a difficult and often overwhelming concept to grasp and constantly manage. When you’re faced with new challenges in the midst of everything else life can and will throw your way, it’s nice to have a support system to fall back to. We are that support system.
LONG-TERM EDUCATION & GROWTH
Nothing here happens overnight. It all starts with a commitment, one that’s made the moment you walk through the door. From there, we work with you on all of the above and then some. We become your biggest advocate for long-term growth and change. It doesn’t start with a diet or high intensity exercise right off the bat; it starts with the proper education to begin to equip you with the tools that you need to ultimately realize your true potential.
