    Brian is a fantastic trainer and business owner. His approach to fitness is very customized and realistic given my lifestyle and abilities. I am happy to be continually making progress toward my fitness goals. While I'm not at all "rugged" I still appreciate the casual welcoming feel he has created at his centers.

About this pro

One of the first things people will notice about our facility is that there are no exercise machines. The majority of traditional exercise machines overtrain primary muscles while weakening stabilizer muscles as well as promoting poor movement patterns by working to isolate and strengthen one muscle group at a time. If you think about it, when do you ever use one muscle at a time in any other activity in your life? The answer is that you don’t, and if you only train muscles that way, you are ultimately working against your body’s natural systems. Changing people's lives.

    Q & A

    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      We start all new participants with a free Strategy Session in which you will meet 1-on-1 with one of our coaches to discuss your goals and complete a Functional Movement Screen. Based on this initial consultation session, your coach will design a comprehensive plan for you to achieve your goals.
    • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
      Make sure that the trainer you are hiring has the proper credentials. There are a lot of companies that will "certify" someone as a personal trainer after only a weekend course. Proper certifications include CSCS, NSCA CPT, ACSM and NASM. Also a degree in exercise science is also a good indicator of a legitimate trainer.
    Coverage Area for Rugged Fitness is about 30+ miles of Plantsville, CT.
