Some of our people


    As an instructor you need to be outgoing and certainly not shy. Qmax has given me the confidence to be a better PT. It pushes and motivates me to get outside my comfort zone and build my business.


    My initial attraction to Qmax stemmed from my passion for group training, however, the Qmax product itself is amazing. I have delivered close to 500 classes and there is never a boring day. It is hard to call it work when you develop strong bonds with the member base helping them achieve their goals.


    Different individuals have different goals, and watching people accomplish these goals during Q-max classes is an incredible feeling! No matter what the goal is, the sense of accomplishment remains the same!
