Life Performance Personal Training - The best training in irmo!

Do you need a Personal Trainer in Irmo SC to help you get in shape and be more active?

Our unique style of personal training will benefit all aspects of your life

Athlete's Arena is proud to introduce to you our unique style of personal training, we call "Life Performance." Do you need to load a bag of potting soil into the back of your car, or put your suitcase in an overhead bin in an airplane? Life Performance personal training increases strength, flexibility, cardiovascular endurance and body composition in a safe and effective way. It starts with an individualized program based on your specific needs and goals. Are you recovering from an injury? Would you like to lose weight, tone up, or generally be more fit? Our knowledgeable trainers will evaluate your fitness level and come up with a plan specifically for you. Your trainer will be there with you every step of the way, making sure you perform the exercises correctly, and remain injury free.

You can be an athlete in your own way. Young or old, overweight, or injured, everyone can improve their health and quality of life with strength and conditioning supervised by a skilled personal training professional. It will be one of the best decisions you make to reach your health and fitness goals; and you'll see how it will improve your overall quality of life.

Experienced Personal Trainers

Our personal trainers' daily pursuit is the improved quality of life for each client. We want to understand where you are right now, in order to design the right plan for your needs. We offer personal training at both our Columbia gym and our Irmo gym. Our experienced, certified personal trainers have the skills and experience to guide you to health and strength. Whether it's after an injury, inactivity, or if you just want to improve your current fitness level, we can help everyone! We even have the Best Personal Trainer in Irmo and Chapin, Heather Kobus, voted by readers of Irmo/Chapin Life magazine!

Fun workouts that won't bore you!

Are you tired of the same routine of 30 minutes on the elliptical, stairmaster or stationary bike, without seeing any measurable results? Athlete's Arena personal training programs offer you a different kind of workout, one that changes regularly and will produce results you can see and feel in a short amount of time. We won't bore you with long periods of cardio; instead, you'll get a full body workout that is not only heart-healthy, but builds muscle as well.

Reverse Aging with Resistance Training

Are you feeling like your body's starting to age faster than your mind is? Have you added the "Covid 20" to your frame since last year? Studies show that adults who are physically inactive lose as much as 3 - 5 percent of their muscle mass per decade after age 30 (Dr. Axe - Food is Medicine). This leads to weakness, less mobility and greater chance of injury over time. The best way to reverse that process? Eat more protein and begin a resistance training program that builds muscle. The Harvard Medical School recently published a recommendation that you "enlist a well-qualified personal trainer to help set up a detailed sequence and supervise your initial workouts to ensure you perform them safely and in the best manner. " Who can argue with Harvard's recommendations?!

Personal Training for All Ages and Fitness Levels

Forget what you think our gym is like, we are not your traditional gym. Our people don't fit into any mold. When you walk through the doors you'll see people of all ages, sizes and fitness levels, from tweens and teens training for their favorite sport to professional baseball players, to regular working folks, moms, dads, grandmas and every age in between! Put yourself first and give us a try. With communication, determination and consistency, we will take you on a life changing journey and you will never look back!
