Not Just Another Pretty Fitness App 

Are you like thousands upon thousands of other women who create fitness boards on Pinterest only to never refer back to them again? Or, are you one of the well-meaning subscribers to a men or women’s fitness magazine that collect dust in the corner before hitting the recycle bin? C’mon, you can admit it; we all do the same crazy things. As Ferris Beuller predicted, life is moving pretty fast and if we don’t change with it, we’re going to miss our workouts!

Enter PerFit. Designed and powered by Prairie Life Fitness, THIS is your app! As one of the nation’s leading upscale health and fitness clubs, our preference is to see you IRL (in real life.) We understand that today’s culture is chaotic and overloaded schedules often push fitness priorities to the side or to the bottom of the pile. We created PerFit to help you stay on track regardless what train comes speeding toward you.

Workout When & Where It’s Convenient for You

We work hard to accommodate all schedules with our club hours, but we also know that sometimes you just need a great workout at home. We see you; in the sweatpants your kids have been wiping their Cheeto-stained fingers on all night long. Yes, we’ve been there and we applaud your will to not count chasing after the kiddos as cardio or picking up their toys as weight lifting. Good for you for not letting yourself off the hook for mowing the lawn and driving your kids to their sports. Get training tips, fitness videos, workout ideas and more delivered directly to your device of choice at hotel rooms and wherever your busy schedule takes you with PerFit.

Don’t forget - many PerFit subscribers use the workouts in the gym, too. Our world-class trainers are at your service but when they’re not available or if you prefer to workout on your own, PerFit is there for you.

Get the best workout and stay fit, even on the go! PerFit delivers all of that and more.

Visit www.perfittraining.com for more information or download the app today on the APP Store or at Google Play. Let’s go!

Find Your PerFit  

PerFit ($0.99) At this introductory level you pick from a choice group of workouts, developed by our Prairie Life Fitness certified personal trainers. Each workout includes step-by-step instructions with high quality video and audio, so using advanced equipment or learning new exercises is made simple. Choose workouts based upon the equipment available to you and get moving without the limitations of time or place.

PerFit Plus ($4.99) With an in-app upgrade, you can advance to PerFit Plus. You’ll complete your profile where you’ll share your current fitness condition and your fitness goals. From there, PerFit Plus will take your data and build your personal workout plan. If your goals or preferences change you can update your profile anytime. You can also swap out an exercise if you have an injury that makes a certain exercise too hard. Or if there is an exercise you simply do not like, PerFit will provide a comparable exercise, based on your fitness goals.

PerFit Pro (Ask a personal trainer today for more information on how to get custom workouts sent directly to your device.) 

PerFit Pro is here to take your fitness to the next level. We will match you with a Prairie Life Fitness certified personal trainer who will help you exceed your fitness goals. Your personal trainer creates custom tailored workouts and continued interaction via the PerFit app. This one-on-one interaction will help you achieve results you never thought possible. Your personal trainer will build and schedule your workouts, which are automatically added to your phone’s calendar.

Each exercise features step-by-step instructions with audio, video and visual instruction, which makes working out intuitive and simple. With it, you can have your personal trainer with you at all times and work out when and where it’s most convenient for you.

From our Pilates Department:
We continue helping you get to know our Pilates Instructors, next up, Kelly Hedlund:

Kelly Hedlund has been teaching fitness classes at PLF since 2004. Kelly is a registered nurse with a passion to help members maintain or develop a healthy lifestyle that will allow them to lead a long, happy, pain free life. She teaches water aerobics, strength, balance, Nia, and mat and reformer Pilates. The body is meant to move in many different ways. Kelly has her white belt certification in Nia, and mat and reformer Pilates certification. 

"A strong powerhouse or core is the foundation of a strong body. Pilates is the perfect way to strengthen the core and improve flexibility and body awareness. Reformer Pilates adds extra full body conditioning and flexibility to the Pilates experience. Without my training in Pilates all the other types of exercise I love would not be as effective or safe." 

"It is almost impossible to choose just one favorite reformer exercise out of the thousands of possibilities, but elephant is one that allows strengthening, stretching, and awareness to happen all at once. There are many variations of elephant that make it seem new and challenging every time."

"Pilates is for everyone and will change your posture and body awareness outside of the studio."
