Semi Private Training


Strength training is the superior method of training if you want to change your body. Male or female, beginner or expert, strength is key. It simply MUST be part of your fitness program.

Semi private personal training is the best, most effective and affordable method of strength training so you can reduce body fat and add lean muscle. So, what is Semi Private Training?

Small group personal training (or semi-private training) is for 2 to 4 people at a time and is what private training would be if it was dynamic, energetic, fun and affordable! It’s a progressive, circuit training system that is based on proven scientific principles for maximum physical and cosmetic improvement.

If you have been stuck or struggling to change your body, strength training is the answer, and true strength training needs to be done in a personal training environment. To get lean, to reduce body fat, to drop weight, to add lean muscle (which gives you that “toned” look), to turn the clock back, you need to do strength and resistance training.

Our unique 4 Week cycle focuses on four phases of training every month to continually spark improvement and progress. Our small group personal training setting in Encino & Northridge provides a fun, challenging environment that is much more dynamic and enjoyable than one-on-one training.

The TDC is a great program to help keep me focused on my goals. I haven’t worked out in 5 years and was out of shape and not in a good mindset about how overweight I had become. I wanted to get healthy and didn’t know where to start. I didn’t make a resolution this year, but I did a google search and found Arena Fitness and the TDC in December of 2015. The TDC and Arena Fitness got me on track with a fitness and nutrition program that works. I’ve always been a fairly healthy eater, but didn’t know my limits when it comes to portion control. TDC’s program helped me stay consistent with portion control and kept on track, even with 2 east coast business trips and an overnight work retreat during the 28 day challenge. I learned how to become a better eater, even when going thru the buffet line at hotel convention center. A lot of credit needs to go to Will and Stacey of Arena Fitness. They were incredibly positive, helpful and encouraging during the challenge. We have a saying the recruiting company I work for – “Work the system, because the system works.” I’d like to slightly modify this saying to “Work the TDC, because the TDC works.

The trainers are AMAZING! They are fitness experts who actually know what they are talking about. They also care about each of their clients. It’s not just about working out either. They work with their clients to set and reach goals whether it be losing or gaining weight, eating better, etc. The trainers are focused on overall health.

I LOVE Arena Fitness! They are truly like family. I needed to find a way to get back in shape so I did the math and found that if I gave up my daily Starbucks, that money would pay for a daily workout! I’m down 13 lbs and lost 8.5% body fat because I did the 28 Day Take Down Challenge! I feel so much better and I have a lot more confidence in my life!!!!!

“Training at Northridge with Will and Phil is just the perfect amount of “holy-crap-is-this-over-yet?!?!” challenging and unpredictable fun! The group training at Arena Fitness took me to a new level of strong but the nutrition program was a complete game changer for me. With Stacey’s guidance and an extremely clear road map to follow, I lost 22 lbs off my little 4’11” frame. I’ll admit that I still kinda geek out over the fact that my upper arms no longer resemble the shape of a summer sausage but the best part of this transition by far is having so much more overall energy and taking less time to recover after a hard workout. I’m now in the very best shape of my life!”

Best gym in the Valley. I started Arena fitness as a human slug who couldn’t hold a plank for 20 seconds without my whole body shaking like jello. I am proud to say that now I can hold a plank for a solid 3 minutes and that is how I measure my core strength. I hope to ease into my old age physically fit, if not gracefully.

“I can’t say enough about my experience with the 28-Day Balanced Habits Kick Start Program which I participated in Autumn 2017 through Arena Fitness in Encino.  A little over a month ago, I was feeling exhausted and stuffed into my wardrobe.   My eating habits were based on convenience – processed foods (nightly M&Ms and frequent fast food runs).   Of course, I wanted to look and feel better, but I also was motivated to take steps to avoid taking cholesterol medication if possible.  As much as I wanted quick results, I knew that I needed help to get in balance and to stay there.   
Though it sounds cliche, Balanced Habits really has taught me how to eat by emphasizing a combination of proteins, carbs, and fats and teaching me to focus on eating clean and ground – based whenever possible.  The individualized plan based on my age, frame, and lifestyle has been invaluable information and like nothing I ever experienced as a fallen Lifetime Weight Watcher.    I don’t think I was eating often enough before.  Certainly, I was not feeding my body what it needed but was feeding bad habits. 
I’m happy to report I never felt hungry on this program.   Indeed, it was sometimes difficult to eat as much as I was supposed to consume.    Yes…I did initially experience junk and sugar cravings, but I got through those times (gone by end of week 2 for me) in relatively easy fashion by replacing the “bad” habit with movement (cardio walking and semi-private strength training sessions at Arena).  The combination of guidance from Arena Nutrition  Director, Stacey Garcia, eating balanced, and moving with the trainers’ help, really took my results to a level I didn’t realistically expect.  As a side benefit, I don’t look as puffy and am not downing Advil because of arthritis pain.   
I started my balanced journey on Goggle searching for personal training near me.  I quickly found Arena and was impressed by the rave reviews and the online photos.   Arena is a smaller studio gym and the members in the photos looked like real, fit people.   In person, I found the Arena trainers (Daniela, Lauren. Stacey, Joe and Phillip) to be genuine and positive.  They are teaching me the how and why of strength training and adjusting moves based on my abilities and corrective needs.   And because Balance is the key here, Arena even offers a weekly yoga class (shout out to Philip). 
Arena Fitness and its members make for a welcoming community and even look to give back and support important causes.  Arena knows fitness and nutrition.  The team conveys their expertise in a friendly and open manner.    As Jonathan said when  we first talked, they care what and how we do on Day 29 and beyond.  I’m now participating in Balanced Life so that I can keep balanced!
Best wishes and thanks, Arena!”
