Personal Trainers

Maddie Braasch


My favorite part about being a personal trainer is educating my clients on how to make themselves better physically and mentally. By providing an exercise program, I hope to create a long term, positive lifestyle change towards their health and fitness goals. I like to incorporate circuit training, focusing on cardio and resistance exercises, but am also open to client’s preferences throughout the program. I understand the importance of motivation in exercise, and want to help my clients enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle.

My favorite part of being a personal trainer is seeing the physical and mental progression in my clients as a result of the effort put forth through training. Being able to improve a person's overall wellness and self-efficacy is incredibly humbling and rewarding.  Having the ability to influence people in that aspect drives me. I am currently in-house certified and my favorite style of training is a mixture of circuit and high-volume training.

I love being a personal trainer because it gives me the opportunity to help others make a positive lifestyle change and achieve their fitness goals. I incorporate many different training styles into my sessions; anything from functional movement to sports specific training. I tailor each session to each individual client and that gives me the ability to help them reach their goals and go above and beyond what they thought could be possible. I like to push my clients to see past the barriers and make exercise a part of their daily lives.

The best aspect of being a personal trainer for me is that with my services and the clients' will power, I can help somebody achieve their fitness goals. It gives me an inner satisfaction when I am able to build a good relationship with my clients and see them trusting me in progressing towards their goals and feel happy when they are able to achieving them. I am a certified Sports physical therapist as well, so my training methods generally focus on the entire body fitness with special attention to the area that is to be corrected. I rely mostly on active fitness and less on the machines.

My favorite part about being a trainer is that I am able to see people progress towards their goals and that exercise has a positive impact on their everyday life. I am a USA weightlifting certified coach and have a passion for the clean, jerk, and snatch variations. My training style is strength training as well as high intensity intervals but, I know how to adapt for clients who may not be ready for those types of workouts.
