Featured Trainer

Fernando Rios

A Latino native of Center City Philadelphia, Fernando Rios has always had a passion for fitness. Starting at a young age, it has guided him to pursue his desire and become a personal trainer, a career that to which he is fully committed. Being bilingual, Fernando is able to provide his services to both English and Spanish speaking clients. Studying nutrition and personal training through ACE, NFPT, and ACSM, Fernando strives to create a fitness regime that provides a life balance for both him and his clients. He counsels his clients that finding balances is one of the key elements for maintaining a healthy weight; this balance will also help the client to get stronger mentally and emotionally. He feels the same theory applies to workouts, balancing and lifting your own body weight can create phenomenal results. Coming from a family with different health conditions, Fernando can develop workout routine for anyone with any condition. Since he suffers with arthritis in his lower back, he knows the pain day in and day out. Growing up, Fernando always wanted to be unique and help each client achieve greater heights. As a personal trainer, his method incorporates cardio and strength training along with muscle toning called TRX. Many individuals cannot perform this type of exercise, and this is why Fernando is here to help. One of the many things Fernando can do is tone your core to the max and keep your heart rate up. You won’t walk out any of his sessions or classes feeling you’ve wasted your time and, in fact, will find that you will be inspired to continue with his program in order to achieve greater results. From nutritional questions to fitness goals, he is always open to help anyone, anytime, even while he’s working out. If you see him on the gym floor, don’t hesitate to ask for some workout tips!
