I want a gym where I can be held "somewhat" accountable for showing up and putting in good effort. Left to my own devices I'll crap out eventually and just stop working out. There are so many other things I'd rather do, you know, like napping.
We got you. At South Shore Fitness, you are way more than a number. We are more than just personal trainers, we pride ourselves on being coaches. Invested in each of our clients to help them move from where they are at to where they want to go.
I'm not satisfied at the big gym I go to. The trainers look bored and unispired. I started looking into smaller training centers, but I'm not sure what these places offer and what their programs are. It said things like "group training" but I don't really know what that means.
That's a fair point, it can be really hard to know and understand what is offered. You can download our info packet (click here).

Group Training sounds kind of scary to me. I don't want people watching me and seeing how poorly I do. I just know I'll be the worst at it. I don't even know what "it" is though actually.

Clearly the cost is one of the first questions many people ask.
I get it, we all have budgets that we have to live with and within. Often what I find though, is people ask about price first, but what the real question is; "Can you help me solve my problem?"
And what that boils down to is Why is getting in shape, losing weight, being healthier important to you?
Our program is designed to help our clients get amazing results by working directly with our Coaches both on and off the floor. That is what I hope to resolve for you and get you an amazing program, that delivers the results you are after at an affordable price.

A large factor in the results you get (or fail to achieve) will have to do with what you eat every day. Now, I know you don't need me, or anyone else for that matter, to tell you that broccoli is good for you and you should eat more whole foods and vegetables. A big focus for our program is helping you make eating healthy EASIER than eating unhealthy. We do this through mindset and habit as well as sharing knowledge. Below are just a few of the common nutrition questions we get.
How much prepping to I have to do? Do you cook now? If so then it won’t seem that different. Yes there is prep involved, usually two times a week (Sunday and again Wednesday or Thursday. Being prepared is the key to success, even when you don’t have the time to be in the kitchen. Grab a copy of my Free Meal Prep Guide
Do I need to count calories? If that is what works for you. For some counting calories is easy and motivating, for others it is a chore they do for a day or two. The portions and combinations of foods we suggest keep you in the range you should be in. I provide my clients with a monthly recipe book and sample meal plans each week to make it as easy as possible.
Can I have coffee? Yes, ideally you want to have coffee and not some coffee flavored dessert drink. So, have your first cup the way you like it. Use real cream, use real sugar, avoid the artificial stuff. Treat yourself to one, and go with just black coffee for your second cup.
How do I know my serving size? The most accurate way of course is to weigh everything. That of course can be tedious and time consuming. So here is the protocol I suggest to my clients.
- Veggies are unlimited
- Protein the size of your fist
- Fats about the size of your thumb
- Carbs, what will fit in the palm of your hand.
As a client, I will put together a sample profile for you that aligns with you, your lifestyle and your goals.
Can I drink alcohol? Count it. Think of alcohol as a speed bump on your path to your desired outcome. It won't stop you, but it will slow you down. Everything in moderation is usually a good call, but if you want to reach your outcome sooner, take as many speed bumps out of your way as possible.
What about Shakes? Protein shakes are hard to beat in terms of supplementing your protein intake and of course the convenience factor. As a general rule, avoid the proteins with artificial color, sweeteners and flavors. Also, keep in mind that every time you add something to the shake, you increase the sugar and calories. If you make one with 1 tsp of real peanut butter or ½ and avocado, it’s become more of meal. As much as possible, the goal should be getting your nutrition from real foods as much as you can.
How often do I weigh myself? ONCE A WEEK! The scale can be cruel, we love using the Fit3D Proscanner as it shows the inches and body composition numbers. Another great gauge of course is how your clothing fits and how you feel.
How much weight loss is the correct amount each week? Any loss is great even .5-.8 pounds. It’s not natural for our bodies to lose weight so if you are losing it’s working. If your body is working as it should and you have followed the program you can expect 1-1 ½ pounds per week sometimes 2 pounds. This is real weight loss.
