Gale Volk

Certified trainer since 1994 through the National Academy of Sports Medicine

Other certifications include:
BOSU Training
Stability Ball Training

My purpose as a personal fitness trainer is:

  • To provide women with the knowledge and expertise in training the safest and most effective way possible for faster results.
  • To offer fun work outs for private, partner & small group training with a variety of exercises and equipment.
  • To provide a safe and clean environment in a private studio setting. All fitness training equipment is high quality and inspected regularly.
  • To help women realize this is a lifestyle change. We take a look at all aspects of daily living: nutrition, activity, flexibility, strength, sleep and reduced stress. All are important in keeping fit and feeling your best.
  • To maintain integrity and a focused committment to helping women in the pursuit of their fitness goals.
  • To share the passion I’ve had for 35 years. To be physically fit and strong, age with grace, dignity and a zest for life!
Pete Before and After

"Thank you to Gale and Fitness with a Purpose for helping me to lose 35 lbs. and increase muscle mass since starting workouts with her in September. Gale challenges me with both cardio and weight work, which keeps me motivated to work hard and meet my goals. The philosophy for my weight loss is decreasing the input and increasing the output. I am now eating smaller portions of healthier food and exercising at least 4-5 days a week with a purpose. Getting fit has helped me in many different ways. Not only do I look great, I feel like a new man. I am stronger and able to move around with ease. Having umpired high school and summer softball for over 30 years, this is the first season that my muscles have not ached at all after the first couple of games. I am now wearing comfortable size 38 umpire slacks, down from tight 44 slacks and have emptied my closet of all 40 - 44 pants along with 2XL shirts. What a great feeling it is to be in shape, thanks to Gale and Fitness with a Purpose. (I also have to thank my Newfoundland dogs for pushing me to walk them 3-4 miles a day and my wife Katie for her encouragement!)"
