As a client of Dakota Personal Training, you’ll be individually trained by a fitness expert in a state of the art private facility on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. In addition to motivation and accountability, all of our clients receive the following:

Semi-Private Training
We now offer semi-private training sessions for clients looking for cost savings or the opportunity to work out with friends. Our sessions are designed to give your metabolism a kick by combining strength and cardiovascular training. They differ from typical boot camp classes in that we do not simulate a military feel. The exercises combine balance, coordination, and intensive cardiovascular training along with core work and flexibility training. We limit participation to a maximum of four clients to ensure individual attention and eliminate the “one size fits all” workout. Before placing you in shared sessions we’ll consult with you regarding your schedule, goals, and fitness experience. This flexible approach enables us to make modifications when needed or push our more fit members even harder.
For the uninitiated, Pilates is a system of controlled exercises that combine strength and flexibility to create long and lean muscle tissue while improving posture and reducing stress, We offer one-on-one apparatus training or semi-private mat sessions to increase core strength and flexibility.

In addition to Pilates-only training, many of our clients like to incorporate Pilates training into more traditional strength training regimen to increase long, lean muscle mass.
