Our Pick: Duffy Personal Training
Duffy Personal Training
273 Route 34
Colts Neck, NJ 07722
For many people the idea of working out and exercising seems like a chore. Pat Duffy is trying to change that at Duffy Personal Training. “We really try to create a fun atmosphere,” says Pat, who has been in the fitness business for 10 years. “Let’s be honest. Most people’s perception of working out is that it’s hard and not fun. We try to make our workouts challenging, yet energizing and fun, so that the experience is something you’ll want to repeat because you enjoyed yourself and you see results.”
When clients first visit they are given an assessment of their health history and a detailed workout regimen that encompasses weight training, cardio, and stretching. Pat promises that you will sweat and be challenged. He relies on his staff to make sure clients are reaching their goals and to provide suggestions on how to improve the facility.
Pat had always done weight training and workouts; playing sports all his life lent itself to that lifestyle. He decided to make a change in his life that incorporated something he enjoyed while helping people reach their fitness goals, so he started an in-home personal training business. “There is nothing more satisfying than helping someone get healthier, whether their goal is weight loss, post rehabilitation, or gaining a competitive edge in a sport,” says Pat, whose family members are also in the fitness business. “I feel very lucky to be a part of that evolution and help make that happen.”
Pat loves what he does and credits patience, an ability to motivate, a good attitude, and a fun vibe as keys to running a successful fitness studio. In the end, though, it’s all about his clients enjoying the experience of getting in shape. “I want them to feel good when they are here, like they belong, and are not intimidated or apprehensive. I always say that I want my place to be like “Cheers,” where everyone knows your name.” Clients, however, will have to settle for lifting weights instead of mugs of beer.
