From Daniel I. Sheff, Owner and dependable personal trainer for Cosmic Fitness, LLC.
Dan competing at the 2008 Musselman Triathlon.
I am a firm believer in practicing what I teach!
I have been strength training since 1986, but I did not start working with a trainer until April 2000, when I became a client of Personal Best Personal Fitness.
At that time, I was working as a Human Resources Director at a nationally-ranked medical center. Unfortunately the ever-increasing demands of my position were taking a physical and mental toll on me.
Despite strength training with my personal trainer twice a week, I was overweight, suffered from insomnia and for the first time in my life- migrane headaches. I knew it was only a matter of time before I must leave the medical center because if I did not I was on the fast track for a heart attack, ulcer, brain aneurysm, or all three.
Fortunately, my trainer at the time told me that the studio where he and I trained (Personal Best Personal Fitness) was conducting a personal trainer certification course and would I be interested in participating? I jumped at the chance and in February 2005, I earned my personal fitness training certification through the International Fitness Professionals Association (IFPA). Thereupon, I began training several clients for Personal Best on the days that I was scheduled to train with my trainer.
In April 2006, I entered my first bodybuilding contest, and by year's end I had participated in two more shows.
In June 2006, I started my own personal training business because I like helping others achieve their health and fitness goals.
I, therefore, would welcome the opportunity to help you achieve yours.
Hours of Operation:
I am available to train clients Monday through Thursday from 7 AM until 8 PM; Fridays from 7 AM through 2 PM, and Saturdays from 7 AM until 2 PM.
All strength training sessions are by appointment only, and run either 30, 45 or 60 minutes long.
A single 30 minute session at our facility costs $45.00, but there are several volume-discount packages available. Please email me for details.
Further, my clients do not sign a contract. We simply train appointment to appointment.
Finally, in-home sessions and gift certificates are available. But please be aware that the rate for in-home sessions varies, as I need to factor-in my travel time to and from your residence.
