New fitness facility in Alexandria offers affordable personal training

Care, Health & Fitness offers cost friendly personal training without a contract. And owners Cicely Hickman and Claire Burkhardt plan to keep it that way.

“We charge $35 an hour,” said Burkhardt. “Our goal is never to go above that. You get the full hour. Plus we also do nutrition coaching and behavior health when it comes to your approach on food and stuff like that. We’re both NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) health coaches.”

Hickman said that they’ve been training their current clients at their new location that occupies the space where Boutique on the Lakes was at 94 Versailles Blvd., Building H. An open house will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday where people can meet them and learn about what they offer.

“We’ve been getting some attention lately, and it’s been going good,” Hickman said.

Hickman explained that their facility isn’t a gym but a place where clients can get one-on-one personal training.

“You come in. You talk with us, and you book a session,” she said. “The first session is free. Then you let us know when you want to come back.”

Each session is one full hour. Clients also learn about nutrition and wellness that’s tailored to their individual needs, Hickman said. What may work for one person may not work for another due to genetics and lifestyles. So they work on getting people to understand how their bodies work, how they are unique and how to enjoy the process of getting fit.
