Brian Maher started Philly Personal Training in the spring of 2009 when he first moved to Philadelphia. He is an experienced, certified personal trainer who trains at Philly Personal Training at 1429 Walnut Street in Center City, Philadelphia. He received his bachelor’s degree in exercise/sport science from Elon University and is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength & Conditioning Association. Brian has been featured in Philadelphia Magazine, Be Well Philly, Runner’s World, Philly.com, and many other media outlets. Having been a personal trainer for several years, Brian utilizes his experience and education to provide clients with sound fitness and nutritional advice rather than gimmicks and quick fixes. He also uses his knowledge to teach clients about the benefits of exercise, break down complex fitness workouts and nutritional information into simple, easy-to-follow steps, and familiarize clients with fitness equipment and workout routines. Finally, Brian is able to aid clients in reaching their individual goals by providing unique training sessions tailored to strength training, weight loss, speed and agility, and balance. By understanding and educating clients about the importance of both energy intake (nutrition) and energy expenditure (exercise), Brian is able to help clients obtain optimal results.
Brian originally started Philly Personal Training in 2009 as an in home personal training business. He grew his business and client list by getting his clients results. In fact, his clients saw such great results that he was recognized as Philadelphia’s “Best Personal Trainer” in 2013 by Philadelphia Magazine. After winning the award and gaining more popularity, he realized he needed a way to be able to help more people reach their goals. In September of 2014, Brian opened Philly Personal Training’s current location at 1429 Walnut Street. His goal was simple: to develop a staff of personal trainers who are highly educated and qualified. While it is popular for many gyms and personal training studios to showcase their trainers’ physiques, Brian wanted to showcase his trainers’ education, experience, and talent so that potential clients could see how a professional personal trainer could help them reach their goals in a safe and effective manner. Brian hopes that after a client works with a trainer on his staff, their opinion of what a personal trainer is and should be, will be forever changed.
