The nice weather is upon us and it’s time we started to think about squeezing ourselves into bathing suits again.
And you know what that means…dieting and exercise, that’s right — exercise.
Some people, however, have a hard time knowing what to do when they enter a large fitness center.
- Should I lift weights or do cardio?
- How often should I workout?
- What muscles does that machine work?
Those questions aren’t an issue at the area’s only private gym, which is hosting an open house just in time to get ready for beach season.
At the Philadelphia Private Gym, clients have access to all the same amenities and equipment found at the mega fitness centers, but in a one-on-one atmosphere. The Private Gym is 4,000 square feet and contains numerous machines, free weights and workout areas.
Owner Pondeli Hajioannou, a Bensalem resident, has been training people since 1984 and opened the Private Gym in 2000.
Hajioannou told Patch that his clients range from regular guys and gals just looking to lose a few pounds to world-class athletes training for competitions.
“I’ve been doing this for a long time and have trained thousands over the years. I train all types of individuals,” he said.
He said he offers a free hour evaluation during which people can see the gym and discuss their goals and expectations.
“If you’re ready to start training, let us help you reach your health and fitness goals,” he added.
