Gail McGhie

Brooklyn, NY 11213

I am passionate about fitness and I love sharing my knowledge about exercise and a healthy lifestyle with my clients. I'm not a drill sergeant, I'm more of a personable coach that motivates you to move and work your body in ways you didn't know were possible. Watching someone transform and enjoy a fitter, healthier lifestyle is very rewarding. Depending on your fitness level, I modify or progress the program with expertise and attentiveness. Customized programs are designed according to goals, strengths, motivations and challenges. One on one sessions provide provide total body conditioning for fat burning, toning and sculpting, increased strength, cardio and muscle endurance and enhanced flexibility. I specialize in training women of all ages and the wide age range is so important because I can see both sides of the spectrum and create programs accordingly. The first meeting with me includes a fitness assessment and a review of eating habits and lifestyle. Sessions start with a dynamic warm up. The work phase involves compound and fat burning exercises and core strength. A relaxing stretch concludes the session. I have a small private fitness area in Crown Heights and I also travel to client's homes. Outdoor workouts and apartment gym sessions are also available. The most valued body, is your own body. Enjoy a fit lifestyle!

5.0 out of 5 Stars

    10 out of 10 stars because Gail is rockstar! She really helps to push you to the next level, but is also great at working with you to modify if you have an injury, of which I have many (twice dislocated shoulder, hip surgery, compressed spinal nerves, etc.). Even at my extremely slow pace I’ve seen and, more importantly, felt a difference. She has multiple options for various modifications so if modification 1or 2 don’t work for my weirdness we go to # 3 and if that doesn’t work we go on to something else and revisit that the next go round so I never feel like I'm missing out. There’s tons of variety. Her concern for you is genuine. She also has given me “homeowork” to do on my own at the gym. She caters everything to you right down to your preference in music and room temperature. She is the true definition of a personal trainer. I wouldn’t travel an hour and a half for just anybody.

    I’ve been training with Gail for the last few weeks. Gail is extremely patient and explains the benefits of each excercise. My energy is up because of the workouts, and I feel challenged with each session. Gail has showed me how to work muscles that I have never used before, and I am already seeing wonderful Changes in my body, strength, and flexibility. Gail is absolutely amazing.

    Gail is focused on helping me achieve my goals and makes every session challenging (& somehow fun). My fitness has increased noticeably and I’ve seen improvements in my ability to complete more exercises, pushing myself harder throughout each session. She also ensures that my technique is always correct to avoid any injuries. I actually look forward to my workouts. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gail as your personal trainer if you want to achieve your fitness and health goals. Will be writing another review after completing my goals!

    I thoroughly enjoy working out with Gail. Her workout routines are varied and fun. In just a few weeks I've seen and felt a noticeable difference. I'm stronger, more flexible, and my endurance has increased. The exercises are tailored to me and I can easily replicate the routines at home in between our sessions. I definitely recommend Gail to anyone who's looking to expand their exercise routine - whether you're just getting started or consider yourself an athlete. Everyone can benefit from Gail's approach to exercise.

    I joined Gail McGhie's group fitness classes 7 weeks ago and I'm so glad that I did! I love to eat but I hate working out. Gail is amazing at what she does -- I was so impressed by the way she motivated me and actually made fitness fun!! I love working with the group as it pushes me more. We have a few exercises where we partner up and Gail personalizes each workout with music and a routine for all levels. I started off taking classes once a week and have just increased to twice a week. I actually look forward to my group works outs and love that I feel and look stronger.
