One-on-one Personal Training in Austin, Texas

You've decided to take positive steps toward the life you want to lead by taking charge of your health and fitness. More importantly, you are interested in enlisting the help of a professional that has been successful at facilitating lasting change in their client's lives. Congratulations! This is the most important step you can take because embarking on this journey alone can be intimidating, unclear, and steer you off course quite easily.

We work with a wide variety of clientele, ranging from the working professional, high school and collegiate athletes, stay at home moms, the elderly, and everywhere in between. As an AG client, when you first sign up, we listen to your goals and desires, take an inventory of your health history, and talk at length about challenges and struggles that have deterred you in the past, be it emotional, psychological or physical.  From that initial meeting, we come up with a game plan working together to get you from your PRESENT self (beliefs, emotions, physical state) to your DESIRED self (how you want to feel, think, move, and look).

Each one-on-one personal training session is always dependent upon how the client feels at the onset of, and within each session.  In other words, a client is not made to fit a  specific training session just because that’s what was planned for the day; on the contrary, the trainer always adapts the session to how the client is feeling on that specific day.  We feel that this is crucial to the health and longevity of the client in terms of avoiding burn out, potential injuries, and addressing the body as not just a physical entity, but also the mind and the spirit of the person as well.

The AG on-on-one personal training client will be taken care of from a variety of perspectives.  In addition to our regularly scheduled sessions, the client will be expected to perform their at-home program in order to facilitate the process of what the client has outlined at the beginning as their goals.  Email, text and phone support are available within business hours.  Body fat, Girth Circumference Measurements, and Nutrition Support are also available to the client.  All of this and the features listed below can be expected at no extra cost to the client.

Meet Michael Groth, M.Ed., CSCS, CES

Mike Groth, has been a practicing certified personal trainer since 2007, and a Movement Specialist Fellow through the Gray Institute Fellowship of Applied Functional Science (FAFS) since 2016. He is also certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach, as well as a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Corrective Exercise Specialist. He earned his Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science from the University of Maine in 2008, as well as a Masters Degree in Kinesiology from the University of Texas Graduate in 2010.

Mike has an excellent ability to motivate, communicate, and relate on a personal level with clients/athletes, as well as the ability to excel at comprehending and applying new knowledge in the allied health profession.  Individuals seeking improved health and fitness through personal training are too often disappointed by the overly-simplistic program design and the limited education and experience level of personal trainers in the industry today.  One of Mike’s fundamental beliefs is that every training session must be approached with the focus revolving around education to the client on how to exercise congruently with individual goals, be it fat loss, correcting posture and movement, or strength training, as well as to debunk myths portrayed by the mass media about fitness and health.
