Personal Trainers

  • Tony Gasparro at Fitness @ Five in Five Points. He is super reasonable and Fitness @ Five is a fabulous place to work out. Pretty sure you can just workout with him and not join the gym. I have worked with Tony twice a week since last Thanksgiving, and I still am even at 7 months pregnant. He works wonders. Let me know if you have any other questions I can answer!
  • Corinne Garbe is a great personal trainer. Her number is 7067143627. I am not 100% what her rates are, but she is pretty reasonable.
  • Corrinne Garbe is fabulous. She a banker by day and teaches classes at St. Mary's Wellness Center evenings and weekends but offers training offsite (which is much cheaper than if you pay her through the gym.) $35 for an hour. She listens to what you want to work on and pushes you to exceed what you think you can do. I have seen amazing results in both my physical appearance and strength since I started working with her last summer. We meet every two to three weeks. Her email is

  • I would recommend Michael Butzken at Athens Personal Fitness. The gym specializes in personal training only. If you purchase 24 or more sessions, they are only $30 per session which lasts an hour long (unlike most other training sessions). They allowed me to pay for sessions on a monthly basis instead of all at once. I really like working out with Michael. He is very personable and good at what he does. I have lost 30+ pounds since I started working out with him in late April. I would have lost more, but I could not get my diet under control. They also provide nutritional counseling for free along with the training. They are located on Broad St right pass the Omni heading towards Atlanta Hwy.
