Personally Fit has been offering one on one, small group, and large group personal training services for 18 years in the Longview area.

Our mission statement is:

To provide the public with the most knowledgeable and motivating personal trainers in the East Texas area using the latest techniques in the personal training industry to produce positive change in our clients, while obtaining a higher standard of professionalism in the process.

The staff is very knowledgeable holding advanced degrees in several different areas such as Biology, Kinesiology, Physical Therapy, and Exercise Science. These combined resources make Personally Fit more than well equipped to help our clients reach their individual fitness goals.

Chris Hill has challenged his staff to make each and every training session tailored to not only push the client to limits they would never achieve alone, but also to be educational in areas like nutrition. To truly transform your body it takes more than exercise.

Our goal as a company is not to be the biggest but the best in the area. Personally Fit is unique in the Longview personal training market. The trainers that are employed here will be trainers who have a passion for this field, and desire to be better than just “average.”
