New fitness center in Ridgefield offers one-on-one personal training and customized nutrition plans | November 17, 2009

Ridgefield, CT - November 17, 2009 - Personal Training Professionals (PTP) of New Canaan has opened a new facility Ridgefield, Connecticut. PTP of Ridgefield is the company's first franchise location and is owned and operated by Chris Carlson, a Redding native and long-time PTP employee. PTP of Ridgefield offers personal training and nutritional counseling and will likely provide one-on-one Pilates and massage therapy in the future.

PTP works with all ages, from teens to seniors, helping them to reach a variety of goals including weight loss, strength and toning, osteoporosis prevention, dealing with a serious health issue, injury recovery, sport-specific training or simply the desire to look and feel better.

After an initial health needs and goals assessment, PTP creates a specific plan for each client. Clients work one-on-one with their trainer (and nutritionist if necessary), building a solid relationship based on a shared commitment to improved physical fitness. Most clients choose to work out in PTP's fully equipped facility, however they have the option to schedule personal training sessions at their home or office.

PTP's decision to open a third location in Fairfield County is based on 11 years of perfecting its operating procedures and follows on the success of its first satellite location which opened in Wilton last year. PTP is the largest personal training facility in Fairfield County, serving thousands of clients in New Canaan, Wilton and neighboring towns, the company said in a release.

Jason Baer, president of PTP, said he is confident that PTP Ridgefield has a bright future in the community because it is based on PTP's proven business model and is staffed with highly qualified and motivated professional trainers and staff. "Working under the guidance of a certified and professional personal trainer is the most effective and efficient way to get physically fit," Mr. Baer said.

Personal Training Professionals of Ridgefield is located at 105 Danbury Road, Unit 102, Ridgefield, CT and can be reached at (203) 431-4PTP or Visit their website at
