Introduction: My name is Scott Garan and I am a Master Trainer with certifications as a Fitness Trainer, Strength and Conditioning Coach, Specialist in Fitness Nutrition, Bodybuilding Trainer, Specialist in Exercise Therapy and Youth Fitness Trainer through the International Sports Sciences Associaton. I am also a certified Strength Trainer through Nautilus and a Physical Fitness Specialist through the Ohio Police Officer Training Academy. I was the Lead Fitness Director for the University of Akron's Law Enforcement Training Center from 2000- 2008. I started training police officer's in 1995 and have been training people of all ages for over 25 years. I have a private studio in Kent where I train client's one on one. A full gym without having to wait for others to clear the machines. I design all of my programs around the client's goals. Many trainers are certified to train adults in fitness, but I am also certified to help with those under 18 as well as to help you with your diet. For those with previous injuries or those that just got out of injury rehab, I can design a program to further your progress. As someone that is certified to train children and young adults, I can design programs to help younger clients to improve their health and sports abilities through fitness! My normal rate is $30 an hour. Those coming 2 or more times a week are charged just $25 and hour and I have a special. For those paying in advance for 36 sessions, I only charge $20 an hour. That's 36 sessions for only $720 dollars! Call me for a free consultation.

Scott is fantastic - I have been working with him almost a month now and have lost significant weight and am building muscle. In a short time I've been able to increase both the weight and reps on all exercises as I work to lose weight. He is very motivating and keeps me on track! Scott has his own private gym studio so you never have to wait for equipment to be available or navigate around others like you would in a membership gym setting. Lastly, his prices are very affordable compared to other personal trainers. Definitely see him for a consult, he will take great care of you and help you reach your fitness goals!

I have been working with Scott for months now. He is always on time for our sessions and prepared with a thoughtful personal workout plan. Scott is considerate and has a positive attitude. I’m feeling stronger now. So, I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to get stronger too💪.

Scott did a great job with getting back to my ad that I posted. It didn't even take a full day. He is exactly what I was looking for in a personal trainer. Very happy with how this turned out!

Ive been training for 3 weeks now. I like that hes super close and located right in kent, has fun but hard workouts prepared, and works with people who struggle with health issues. Hes very open about his life as well which helps you feel more welcome. (Plus side: there is also a gym cat!)

Everything! Scott is such a great person. He really takes into account who you are and where you are in your fitness goals. He doesn't make you feel guilty about anything. He pushes you in a way you need and working with him is a breath of fresh air. I highly recommend seeing him. If you're looking for a trainer who will work with you and make you feel important. He's the guy.

FAQs

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

    My normal rate per hour is $30. If someone comes 2 or more times a week, my rate is $25 an hour. I also run a special where you can buy 36 sessions upfront at the rate of $20 an hour.

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

    I design everything around the clien't goals. In general I like to train them 2 or 3 times a week at my gym and expect them to do cardio off sight on their own time. This saves them money, and allows for results. Still, everything is individual so this can change depending upon the clients goals.

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

    I am a certified Master Finess Trainer through the International Sports Sciences Association Additionally I am a certified Strength and Conditioning Coach, Specialist in Fitness Nutrition, Specialist in Exercise Therapy that can help those that went through therapy for an injury but need additional help. I am also a Youth Fitness Trainer which is a specialty which very few trainers in the area have. Training youth client's gives them an edge up on their peers when they get into sports. I am also certified as a Physical Fitness Specialist through the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy, and have been certified as a Strength Coach by Nautilus. As the former lead fitness instructor at the University of Akron's Law Enforcement Training Center and working at my private studio, I have over 25 years experience training others.
