Springmoor wants to help you reach your health and fitness goals. We are excited to announce the addition of something new to the Wellness Center offerings. In mid-November, two of our fitness instructors, Tricia Shipley and Kris Lawyer will begin a Personal Training program. Two of our favorite class instructors will now be available to personally help you reach your fitness goals.
The new program will start with a fitness assessment and then be designed to fit your specific needs. While training with your private coach, they will evaluate your interests, establish goals and track your progress. Tricia and Kris will demonstrate each exercise with proper form to reduce risk of injury. They will teach you which muscle groups are being targeted during your training. The trainer will work with you one-on-one for the duration of your session to ensure that you are safe and that you are obtaining optimal results. Each session will include a warm-up, an exercise portion and a cool-down period. The trainers will share helpful exercise tips and information while you are working together.

Does this sound like you? If so, let’s get started! Springmoor has something new to help you achieve your wellness goals.
The instructors will be happy to work with you wherever you are the most comfortable. They can meet you in the South Village Pathways Wellness Center or in the North Village Exercise Room. They can meet you in the privacy of your own home. If you want to train in the pool or the equipment room, they can meet you there also.
We have planned the program to work with your schedule. Each session can be scheduled for 30, 45 or 60 minutes. The amount of sessions will depend on your goals, needs and interests. You and your trainer will decide on the number of sessions that fit your schedule and design a program to meet your fitness goals.
