Paula and Steve Dibbins, co-owners of Fitness Together in Owasso, provide clients with high quality, one-on-one private personal fitness training.
Three years ago, Steve and Paula Dibbins got married and decided they wanted to start their own business. They moved to Owasso and opened Fitness Together, and have since opened another location in Bartlesville.
The mission of Fitness Together is to provide clients with high quality, one-on-one private personal fitness training. You discuss your objectives and goals with a personal trainer and determine if you’re willing to make a commitment to the program mutually agreed to be the best for you. Once you have committed to doing it, your personal trainer will conduct a full physical assessment including body measurements, fitness, strength, and a postural motion assessment.
Most clients want to make changes in their lives but are just not sure about how to do it. Those changes might involve losing weight, getting stronger, having more energy, getting off blood pressure or cholesterol meds, or just finally being happy and confident with their bodies. Fitness Together can assist you with these goals and offers all types of functional training: stabilization, balance, core, mimic function movements, and sports-specific training in baseball, basketball, soccer and more.
Helping you attain your health and fitness goals becomes a personalized experience at Fitness Together. Each of your sessions will be in a private training suite, so there is no intimidation, no pressure, and no waiting for equipment. As Steve and Paula put it, “At Fitness Together, it’s all about you.”
You will be held accountable to attain your personal goals, and your personal trainer is always on hand to motivate, advise and educate you. Your trainer will ask questions during your workout sessions and provide you with encouraging feedback. Though not intimidating, they do not accept excuses, and they will explore what can be done to get around any obstacles or barriers.
At each of your sessions, generally three per week for 12 weeks, your trainer will welcome you at the door and is ready to start on your workout as soon as you arrive. You will be provided cold bottled water and a clean towel for each session. Clients agree that at Fitness Together, you’re going to have a good time and will enjoy seeing your body change as you progress towards your goal. Unlike some of the big gyms, the atmosphere at Fitness Together is warm, friendly and supportive.
Most Fitness Together clients agree that they have experienced accelerated results that they were not able to achieve by working out on their own. Your certified personal trainer will design a program that uses a combination of resistance training, cardiovascular exercise, and supportive nutrition counseling, placing you on the track to a healthier, happier lifestyle.
Often, the hardest part of attaining your personal fitness goal is getting started. At Fitness Together, that’s the easiest part – and it’s free. If you have tried and failed to achieve fitness goals before, or just never knew how to get started, Fitness Together can show you how a structured fitness and nutrition program that holds you accountable is the guaranteed way to a life of vibrant health and fitness. And that first how-to-get-started session will cost you nothing.
If you think you’re ready for a personal trainer, one-on-one attention, an individualized program, decreased risk of injury, increased motivation, accelerated results, accountability, and nutritional planning information, contact Steve or Paula at Fitness Together now.
