Prioritizing Proper Movement

One of the fundamental principles at Fit Augusta is the emphasis on mastering proper form and technique. We believe that before focusing on intensity or volume, it’s crucial to ensure that you’re moving correctly. Our personal trainers are trained to assess and correct movement patterns, helping you avoid injury and maximize results. No matter which program you’ll be participating in, your personal trainer will take you through our Fundamentals Program, starting with the basics and working towards more complex movements. We’ll make sure you are moving safely and effectively, because this always leads to better results!

Building Confidence With a Personal Trainer

A good coach does more than just prescribe exercises – they inspire and empower you to believe in yourself. Confidence is one of the most important factors in success in our lives. At Fit Augusta, we prioritize building confidence through positive reinforcement and encouragement, while you build on your accomplishments. As we do things that we’re proud of, our confidence grows, not just in the gym but in everything we do. You will experience results faster with a personal trainer, so your confidence will grow accordingly. We understand that confidence is key to success, both inside and outside the gym, and our coaches are dedicated to helping you achieve it.


In addition to teaching proper movement and providing personalized attention, our coaches also serve as accountability partners. We understand that staying consistent with your workouts can be challenging, especially when life gets busy. That’s why we’re here to keep you on track, providing support and motivation every step of the way.

Professional Development

Becoming a professional personal trainer is more than just getting a certification, or training people as a side job. And at Fit Augusta, we want to be the best, so the bar is very high. Our coaches and personal trainers must not only have the appropriate experience and certifications, but they also must make it through our rigorous coach onboarding process. This includes a 4 phases of increasing expectations, culminating with the last phase, ongoing professional development. The fourth phase lasts forever, since we will always be trying to get better. This includes ongoing feedback and evaluations, additional certifications and education, and our monthly coach development sessions.
