Nestled in Dayton, Ohio's historic Oregon District, Present Tense Fitness is a personal training and yoga studio offering empathetic, patient, and individualized strength, conditioning, and yoga for people who are ready to pursue sustainable change.
Everyone who signs up for personal training or yoga at Present Tense receives complimentary lifestyle coaching, which is a habit-based curriculum designed to help our community incrementally learn how to shop for, prepare, and eat the foods that fuel, heal, and develop strength.
We don't offer meal plans; we offer troubleshooting and analysis. We don't offer "boot camps"; we offer teaching and learning that you can take with you the rest of your life; we don't offer the promise of magazine-ready airbrushed abs; we offer authentic human connection coupled with meticulous preparation and attention to detail.
If you've been sitting on the sidelines of fitness, we hope you'll come and visit us here in Dayton or work with us remotely to help you develop the healthy lifestyle that serves you.

One of the distinguishing characteristics of the way we work as a studio is our packaging. Everyone who works with us will incorporate strength training and yoga into their weekly regimen. When you sign on to grow at Present Tense Fitness, you'll be making a commitment of three days a week. You'll do strength training twice a week and practice yoga once, and we'll coach you through lifestyle changes outside of the gym. Our most important core value at Present Tense is efficacy, which means that if you give us your money then we demand of ourselves a commitment to help you change. When you step into the doors at Present Tense Fitness, you'll be working with an entire team dedicated to your success.
Individual packages work best for people who have very little experience in a gym or yoga studio, or who are dealing with complicated chronic injuries.

Partner sessions are a great way to reduce the cost of training and learning. You'll still receive individualized attention from an entire team, but you'll also be training alongside a friend who can grow with you.

We shot this video as a beginner's resource for people who would like to develop a home workout for themselves. It shows some of the basic logic behind programming for people who've never lifted weights and provides some of the same cues we might use during initial personal training sessions.
