You will never see one of our training coaches pick out routines from YouTube just to mix it up!
We have a reason for everything we put into a routine. Whether it is team training or personal training, each exercise and component of the program we design for you has a reason.
After we meet to assess your level of strength and flexibility, we design your own strategy for success – what we call a Program Design. What will bring you the results you want with your ability to get to the gym? While planning the movements and weights themselves are important, so is taking a look at the big picture of your lifestyle and goals.
Everything we do for clients has a specific desired result in mind. Hard for the sake of hard is not the way to build fitness. Simply adding intensity for the sake of variety has no merit.
We are dedicated to producing long-term goal results. So everything we plan for you – team training circuits, program designs, and small group weight training sessions – is individually inspired by where you are and where you want to be.

What makes O3 different?
Approach: We are the only studio in town where you work with a “Team” of coaches rather than one individual trainer. This approach allows you to benefit from over 20 years of combined experience with fitness and nutrition.
Experience: Developed by Keith and Marlena Wimsett, O3 Health And Fitness was created for a personal one on one exercise and coaching experience. Keith, an accomplished personal trainer and kickboxing instructor, and Marlena, a highly skilled massage therapist, opened O3 to build meaningful relationships with people who want to be healthy in all parts of their lives.
Environment: We recognize that most gym experiences do not fulfill a person’s needs. O3 offers a private, non-intimidating atmosphere for you to work towards your fitness goals. And, because we specialize in Small Group Personal Training, we have a very strong community of fitness-minded individuals to help inspire and challenge you.
Attitude: From the Afterburn fitness classes and upbeat music to our friendly and knowledgeable coaches, we are striving to make fitness fun again.
Philosophy: We believe that your training session doesn’t end just because the clock says “time is up”. We are here not only to help push you in the weight room but also to guide you in all aspects of your fitness journey.
Managing your fitness involves 4 strategies
1. A strength-increase strategy: Whether you are trying to lose weight, improve your fitness, or even “bulk up”, you must increase your strength. Plainly put: muscle burns calories. The more lean muscle tissue you have, the more calories you burn even at rest. Studies show that adults over 25 need to strength train 3 days a week in order to stave off our bodies natural loss of muscle.
2. A cardiovascular strategy: Another weapon in the fat burning arsenal, cardiovascular (cardio) training also improves your heart-health and endurance. This improvement allows your cardio system to be more efficient in its fat burning mission. Our coaches can help you set cardio goals based on your fitness level.
3. A food strategy: This is where most people struggle. You must eat a healthy balance of proteins, carbohydrates, fibrous vegetables and fats. You also must be careful not to under eat when trying to lose weight. Our coaches can help you determine the right calorie count for you. How many meals should you eat a day? We believe smaller, more frequent meals (5 or 6 a day) is the best food strategy. Why not eat every 3 hours and keep that metabolism ramped up all day long!
4. A hydration strategy: Our bodies are composed of 75% water. Active men and women need to drink 8 to 10 8oz glasses a day. Sodas, coffee and tea do not count! They actually dehydrate the body. Are you drinking enough water every day?
