Hello! I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the week.
Mine sure is flying! I spent my morning working at the gym and have been at home working on miscellaneous things for the blog ever since.
Holy moly, you guys. I am loving the entries and comments coming in for Giveaway Week!
Previous giveaways that have been posted will remain open until Thursday, so keep ’em coming! Moving right along to our next giveaway feature, you will soon find out why this one is very special to me.
A lot of you will recall me reviewing a personal training facility in Michigan last November. Initially, I was contacted by the owner to review their 30-Day Personal Training Program and hopped at the opportunity to get back into a gym.
I really loved the entire Rock City Fitness experience!
I enjoyed the laid-back and homey feel of the lobby…
… as well as the rock show sound and lights ambiance of the workout floor.
Rock City Fitness offers a unique workout environment with three different types of training formats: one-on-one, small group, and large group. Their memberships include a number of personal training options and classes to work with a variety of clients, needs, and budgets.
Here is the best way to break down RCF services:
• 1 on 1 training offers the most personal experience, including exercise and nutrition programs put together to reach your specific goals. RCF has four different 1 on 1 training plans you can read more about here. All 1 on 1 programs can be structured as private (1 client) or semi-private (2-4 clients), depending on what the client is looking for and what their training budget is.
• Group training is a great option for those who are looking for affordable training with plenty of guidance and motivation. RCF offers two types of group training: small and large group. Small gives more individual instruction while large group offers the dynamic atmosphere and energy of a “team” setting.
• Web-based training: is catered towards clients who want an affordable personal training experience, but prefer to exercise at home or at another gym. Web-based training features custom RCF-designed programs that are strictly online with a unique client dashboard, complete with program instructions, exercise videos, training calendar, progress tracking, and trainer/client messaging. This can also be added to any 1 on 1 or group training program.
Whether you decide to train one-on-one or through group classes, you are always going to be working out with a personal trainer. Group training is offered 3x a day and classes last 45 minutes, consisting of up to 12 participants.
As some of you who poked around the About Page may already know, my new home for training clients is at Rock City Fitness!
I cover occasional group training classes, and am available for (in-person) one-on-one, semi-private, small group, and (online) web-based personal training. In the past, I have been very vague with where I train, so I am excited to finally share the news.
I felt the need to include this on the blog because I have picked up on an interest from some of you regarding training. This is where the giveaway comes in!
Rock City has been very supportive of my work both here on the blog and at the gym. To help celebrate the start to Life In Leggings, they have kindly offered to raffle off two awesome packages.
For the Detroit locals: Complimentary 30 Day Personal Training Experience ($340 value)
For everyone else: One Month of Rock City Fitness Web-Based Training ($60 value)
• The 30 Day PT Experience includes an in-person consultation (that also calls for a mini-workout!), a full comprehensive fitness evaluation, and an individual program design totaling seven sessions. After the consult, you will complete 3 one-on-one personal training sessions and then 3 group training sessions.
Beyond the giveaway, this promotion will still be offered for purchase in-gym for the extremely low price of $79!
• Web-Based Training (as described above) is available for clients outside the area, and is also a great option for clients in the area who want an affordable personal training experience, but prefer to exercise at home or at another gym. This training program features custom Rock City Fitness-designed programs that are accessed through your smartphone. Clients utilize a unique dashboard that includes program instructions, exercise videos, their personal training calendar, progress tracking, and trainer/client messaging.
I just kicked off web coaching a couple of weeks ago and am thrilled to finally be able share the option of virtually working out with you all! And, just so you know, the winners of this giveaway will be working with me directly as their trainer. Woo hoo!

I love this giveaway! I have passed by Rock City Fitness a lot and I always thought it looked so cool. I am happy to see that you are training there!!
I didn’t even realize it was there until I went in for my initial consult. It’s nice to hear others are more observant than I am 😉
This is awesome! I would love to do in-person training, but I do not live in the area. So… online training it is! 🙂
Loving these awesome giveaways! I would choose online training since I am not in the area.
Definitely web-based since I am from Chicago! However, I wish I lived near Detroit to go in-person!
I <3 Chicago 😉
Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment
Great giveaway! Mine would be web since Im in Austin. Wish I was closer! Looks like a wonderful training facility.
Strength and Sunshine
Web of course!
I’d have to do web-based training since I don’t live nearby, but I wish I did! RCF sounds like a great place to work out, I’d love more opportunities to work with a trainer (that’s more affordable than one on one like at my gym!) because I love to learn new ways to work out and I push myself so much more with a trainer.
This is so exciting! I would love it either way! Rock City looks and sounds like a great place, and it would be an awesome opportunity to train in person or using the web based format! Thanks for offering this!

I’d love to do the on-line training!
With young kiddos, I would opt for online training!
Rock City looks so inviting, and comfortable! I would be doing web based coaching, but just because Detriot is too far! I wish I could do in person!
Rock City looks like so much fun! I’m living in Nebraska so I’d have to pick the online training!
Online!! Texas might be a bit of a commute… 🙂
Online training for me!
Online training 🙂 Loving the new website, and your pics are awesome!
Erin @ Her Heartland Soul
I would want to do the in-person training but Detroit is far away from Omaha so it would be online! haha
It’d have to be online.
Web, unless you want a stranger from Florida crashing on your couch for 30 days 😉
I would do the online training just because I’m not from Detroit. Sounds awesome!

In person, I live in West Bloomfield 🙂 ps. I’ve been reading for awhile and love the new blog!!
Web – training.. unless you want to come to Chicago. 🙂 Congrats on everything! So excited for you!
I love the idea of online training. Wow. It really helps out a gal that doesn’t live anywhere near there. (Amanda S or Sally).
I’d love this! I’d like the web based but would be willing to come down for a session or 2 in person. I’m up in Bay City.
I prefer in person training and coaching, but I bet web based would also hold be accountable. I’ve never thought to give it a try! Thanks for sharing this idea!
I would have to be web-based since I now live in Chicago 😉 But could always use an in person-training session when I visit home in Detroit!! 🙂
Since I am not in the Detroit area, I would have to go with the online training!
1st, I don’t think I understand the rafflecoptor. Maybe it doesn’t work from my phone which I live on.
2nd, since I live in FL, I’d be interested in the web-based training. :0)
I would love to do in-person, but I would have to do the web option.
I would love to win the 30 Day Local PT Experience!
The local in person experience!
