Do you wonder what personal trainers do when they get to squeeze in their own workouts?
We talked to six of our Steve Nash Fitness Clubs personal trainers and group fitness instructors to find out their go-to workouts when they hit the gym. With so many options, it's hard to choose, but they narrowed it down to each of their favourites.
Find out the 6 workouts our trainers love, and why you should do them too!

"Deadlifts are my favourite!! It's empowering, and a great compound movement that targets mainly the glutes, hamstrings and lats!"
- Olivia Rabb, Personal Trainer

6. Power Clean:
"They're a great way to generate power and explosive strength through combining a deadlift, high pull and a front squat. Combining these three can efficiently increase strength, and speed. Which translate to jumping height, agility, and acceleration."
