Introduction: ENG1INE FITNESS is not your typical gym. We are a personal training centric, total body wellness, boutique style studio. By combining customized personal and semi-private training with group classes, wellness providers, and retail products we give clients a one-stop wellness shop. Our goal is to change people’s lives for the better, not sign up as many members as possible to make a profit. Through experience, we discovered that big box gyms were treating personal training as an “add-on service” and not giving it the attention it deserved. Capitalizing on this oversight, ENG1INE was developed to revolutionize the personal training industry where we match clients with trainers while providing unparalleled, results-driven training, nutritional education and preventative services like chiropractors, and physical and massage therapists. We strive to deliver the best personal training, at an affordable price, so everyone can experience a healthier more fulfilling lifestyle and “Never Plateau.”

This by far has been my best experience with a personal training team. Chris and his team not only challenged and developed my physique but they completely altered my perspective on exercising. The most impressive thing about Chris is his dedication to Engine1Fitness. Every week, I would go into this gym, there was new equipment. He's packed out the gym so much that they are building a new facility. He invests all of his time, energy and resources into this business. He has a pride and passion for the business that spills onto his team and clients. I had the luxury of working with several different trainers for which I've written a synopsis below. Chris, the Owner, is incredibly knowledgeable about all thing fitness and nutrition, He is extremely well read and always educating himself on all things in his field. With all of his clients, he still made the time to check in on me if I missed a session, or if he heard I wasn't my "usual" self. His passion is truly inspiring. Christian aka Cardio Christian, will push your body to levels you've never dreamed of reaching. Christian puts Billy Blanks to shame with his hyper-intense cardio sessions. I often laid in a pool of sweat before I could even leave. It's intimidating, but you'll be proud (and surprised) that you made it through. Jason is absolutely great for targeted muscle building. I no longer can wear my pants because my thighs and hamstrings have grown so much. I used to be extremely intimidated by weight-lifting because I didn't do it in high-school. Jason made me comfortable with heavy lifting. He has a great sense of humor and engaging attitude. I only worked with Andrew a few times but he is great for toning - HIGH reps and moderate weight. I enjoyed working out with him. He would often do some of the ab workout with us to encourage us at the end of a workout. I travel across the country for work. Unfortunately, my extended assignment in Birmingham has come to an end so I have to move on. I now have a positive view of exercising and I have incorporated it into my daily routine- especially while I'm on the road and away from home each week.

So Since meeting Chris, it’s the first time I’ve ever enjoyed training in a gym. Time passes quickly and the sessions are varied. He also provides a rounded service, focusing on nutrition as well as exercise so that I achieve my goals quicker. I’m definitely seeing a difference and getting more toned which is exactly what I wanted.what matters to you truly does matter to him. He does an amazing job with everyone of his clients and most of the time BOOKED if that tells you anything I’m almost done with 90 days and I have seen so much results and I cannot wait to keep seeing them he truly has a heart for wanting what’s best for you he will put you on a meal plan also that’s easy to follow if you don’t have a Trainer I would stop looking and contact him. I promise you that you will not be upset with this choice and it’s a healthy lifestyle 👌🏼

My experience with Engine fitness has been great! Chris Kiziah is a excellent trainer who is concern with the well being & fitness of his client. I have truly been please with the workouts & progress I have made in two weeks. I would highly recommend engine fitness to anyone who needs that extra push to see a total body transformation in the works!
