“Balance Strength & Fitness Center has been a part of my life for 3 yrs. This place by far is the best. Scott McCarthy does his job well. He is a motivator, coach and above all an outstanding Personal Trainer. Since I have been there I have totally changed my body and haven’t felt like this since leaving the Military in 2008. I recommend this place and his staff to anyone. Thanks for all you do Scott.”

Individualized Fitness Programs

BSF personal training sessions consist of one hour sessions with a Personal Trainer. All programs are customized for each client based on their fitness goals. Whether clients are interested in losing those last few pounds, targeting specific problem areas, sports conditioning, achieving a healthier, more active lifestyle, or a complete body transformation, the Balance training staff will work with each one to create a fitness program tailored to meet individual goals.


We also offer small group training, which includes all of the same elements as our personal training sessions but is structured for small groups of 2–6 clients. Working out with a friend or partner can spur motivation as well as being fun. Small group training is great for friends, co-workers, or bridal parties; still allowing for individualized attention but at a cost savings versus one-on-one training.

All sessions are by appointment only at a time convenient for each client. There are no monthly membership fees or contract (a BSF membership is not required for personal training services).

Training Sessions include:

• Cardiovascular Training
• Resistance Training
• Flexibility Training
• Balance Training
• Diet & Nutrition Counseling
• Education on all aspects of health & fitness
