Our Trainers


Total Fitness of Columbus’s team of personal trainers is available to help members optimize their workouts by helping them create personalized workout programs. Appointments with our trainers are in hourly increments. The fee and length of the sessions is dependant on the individual needs of our clients.




If you’re having a hard time getting motivated at the gym, or just don’t feel like you’re getting enough out of your exercise routine, consider hiring a personal trainer. More than just an instructor, a personal trainer can help you come up with the right workout plan to meet your goals. Whether it’s losing a few pounds, toning up your arms, or flattening your stomach for swimsuit season, a personal trainer can help you get there.

Hiring a personal trainer means both a financial commitment and a time commitment to your health and fitness. A personal trainer can help you:

· Get started. A personal trainer can guide you down the path to fitness by creating a specific exercise routine for you.

· Learn proper technique and form. If you’re not doing exercises the right way, it can lead to injury that can sideline you. By doing them right, you’re staying safe and also getting the maximum benefit from your workout.

· Achieve your goals. If you’ve always wanted to lose that last 20 pounds, tone up your body, or just be a healthier person, but you haven’t quite been able to get there on your own, a personal trainer can help keep you on track.

Even a few sessions with a personal trainer can be worthwhile.
