Local Tallahassee Trainers Share Their Keys to Success

Different Workout Styles, Same Healthy Results



(page 1 of 4)

Being healthy and fit is a lifetime goal, but some people choose to make it their lifetime career. Personal trainers make a living by helping people achieve their potential and live healthier lives. The adage that “Those who can’t do, teach” has no place in the personal fitness world — these trainers not only master what they do, but also have a strong passion for it. Just as no body is the same, no training regimen should be identical. Misconceptions regarding exercise are slowly receding as the value placed on individual fitness rises, but it never hurts to get a little expert advice no matter what your goal might be. Here, local personal trainers share their training methods, workout motivation and passion for fitness.

Trainer (owner) 

Shannon Colavecchio

Gym: Badass Fitness

Shannon blends a mix of intense workouts with a family-friendly atmosphere, seeing herself as part drill sergeant, part maternal figure for her students. “Even when I’m pushing someone, I’m doing that because I genuinely care about them. Our No. 1 rule is that no matter what, we always laugh.” Her passion for what she does is obvious, whether it’s through the extensive blog she keeps on her website or just hearing her speak about the Schwinn bikes she’s adding to the studio.

 

Workout music 

“I am all over the map. The only thing you won’t hear at Badass Fitness is country music. That’s not happening. But we do everything here from hip-hop, to funk, to Top 40, to dance music. It really is everything.”
