This interview was way different than any other interview we’ve ever had. We met with David from Power Train West York, and damn were we blown away. Their gym is unlike any other gym I’ve personally ever been to. They’ve got 20 locations (yes it’s a franchise) and started out about 15 years ago in Lancaster, PA. They work with anyone from pro athletes and youth athletes, to grandmas and grandpas. There's a place and program for everyone.
Their business model isn’t your typical “free pizza on tuesday” come and use our machines type of gym. Whenever you’re at one of their facilities you’re working with one of their coaches. Now I’ve never had a personal trainer before and have had countless gym memberships that I rarely used. The quality of the workout was 10x better than I’ve ever had before. We had a brief discussion about goals and then got to work. This showed me in the first 5 minutes that they actually care about your success in their facilities.
Their plans are extremely affordable (way cheaper than a personal trainer at most franchise gyms) and there are plenty of options for your workouts. There are basically 3 categories for their workouts: personal training, speed and agility, and boot camp. Personal training is your one on one training sessions while speed and agility is geared towards athlete’s and their performance. Boot camps are their group classes that are fast paced and packed with workouts, quite a bit different than your machine swapping classes at the majority of gyms. I know that I’ll be getting a membership here. If you’re not sold give your local Power Train a call and get a free workout. Oh and here’s there website too: http://www.powertrainsports.com/
