Introduction: We are a smaller more personal operation that focuses on doing more coaching on an individual customized basis to help our clients make the overall lifestyle changes they need for success. Most gyms just focus on training but we know that nutrition, stress, management, sleep and mindset are crucial to seeing the best results possible. Since we are a studio we don't sell memberships we exclusively do training and focus on getting people results versus selling them a membership. Our staff has a good mix of trainers that specialize in different areas from sports nutrition, corrective exercise for injuries, body transformations for vacations, events and weddings as well as general health/weight loss. We do have 4 male trainers and 1 female trainer on staff since some clients prefer one or the other. We also are very comfortable dealing with injuries since we share a facility with chiropractors and physical therapists who trust us with their patients as well. One of our primary goals for our clients is to get them to move better and with less pain. Our staff holds some advanced certifications to work with these types of issues. I love the fact that my team and I do something that actually makes a positive difference in people's lives. It's a natural high to me to see people make the mental changes as well as physical changes. It is also fulfilling to see how their whole lives improve starting with fitness and moving out to other areas of their lives.

My experience with Puravida has been great. Everyone has been super friendly and it’s been a pleasure working with Jacob. His style is a great fit for me and I’ve already started to see differences in my body, health, and overall well-being just from the first two weeks of my programming. I’m excited to continue on this journey with Jacob and Puravida!

I highly recommend Puravida. My trainer is so knowledgeable that it is like working with a physical therapist, nutritionist and life coach rolled into one person.

When Erik says he’s “dedicated to your health” he means it. He runs a first class studio with only the best trainers who are passionate about health and wellness. They truly invest in their clients. They offer knowledge, wisdom and expertise regarding fitness and nutrition. They provide priceless encouragement and endless accountability to help keep you on track and the workouts are never the same. There are nutrition seminars to help you tackle the nutrition battle, specialized fitness seminars that equip you to be successful on your own, frequent fitness tips that offer a new twist to a workout, and plenty of motivation along the way. I have far exceeded my weight loss and fitness goals and am getting stronger and faster as I get older. That would not be happening on my own. Working with Erik and his Puravida trainers has transformed my life!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We base pricing on each individual's needs and goals. There is no cookie cutter process. The first step is to come in and do a consultation so we can learn more about the person's needs, lifestyle, eating habits, obstacles and goals in more detail. We then give them our best 1-2 options based on the information they give us. Our pgrams generally run anywhere from $160/ month to $660/month. Depending on how much training and nutrition help each person needs. This is also vital to make sure we match them up with the best trainer for them based on their schedule and personality.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first step is to bring them in for a through fitness assessment and goal setting session with their trainer. That way the trainer can see where they need to work as well as get clear on their goals. That way they can develop a strategic training plan instead of just jumping in without learning about the client in more detail. We also schedule a new client orientation with our manager to help the client learn how everything works and all the perks and services we offer in addition to personal training and nutrition coaching.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I hold 3 nationally accredited certifications and a nutrition coaching certification. My staff all have at least 1 nationally accredited certification and some hold advanced certifications in addition to that as well. I have personally been in the fitness industry as a personal trainer for 24 years.
