The G-Werx Workout Program™ Delivers The Results You Want! Your Professional Certified Trainer guides you through a wide range of effective exercises. Your trainer will instruct on proper exercise technique including breathing and posture to achieve maximum results. You and your Trainer work together to set the weight resistance and exertion levels best suited for your success!

Training groups average 5-8 exercisers with a cap of 10 participants per Trainer, per session. Each workout activates different body parts thoroughly once per week to improve your strength and body tone quickly. You'll have fun training in a small group with great people achieving their goals, too. You'll receive professional, quality and attentive feedback from your Certified Trainer.

Program options include 45, 60, and 90-minute formats offered morning, lunch hour, and evening. You can purchase training packages in 4, 8 or 12-week increments which create a consistent, structured and accountable format for you. We have options for frequent travelers, for planned vacations and other scheduling conflicts.
