Personal Training

Personal training isn’t just for celebrities. At Body by John, we’re proud to work with a wide spectrum of Portland-area people with diverse fitness goals. For some, it’s about getting in peak shape for high school or college athletics. For others, it’s about maintaining strength and energy for an active retirement. We help some clients lose weight, help others build muscle mass, and help others who don’t need to gain or lose just feel their best.

Whatever your fitness goals are, we can give you the instruction, guidance, and motivation to do the work and see them come to life. At Body by John, you’ll have the benefit of working with some of Maine’s top fitness experts. Get to know us by signing up for one of our cardio or strength training classes, and take your fitness to the next level by working one on one at least once a week with your favorite BBJ trainer.

Here are just some of the benefits of adding personal training to your fitness routine:


When a fitness program is truly tailored to you and your goals, results happen faster with fewer setbacks and frustrations along the way.

Proper Form

Whether you’re recovering from an injury or trying to avoid one, proper form is key. By working one-on-one with an expert, you can ensure you’re getting the most out of your workout and not hurting yourself along the way.


When you’ve got an appointment on the books with your trainer, it’s much more difficult to skip that workout. For people with busy lives and competing priorities, having that appointment is the difference-maker.

Coaching and Support

Did you know that as humans we are programmed to believe we’ve hit our limit when we’re actually only 40% there? We’ll push you closer to your real potential, because we know it’s there inside of you.
