LOCAL SPOTLIGHT: STEPS fitness
Owner/Founder: Dr. Irv Rubenstein, Exercise Physiologist Meet Dr. Irv Rubenstein. His credentials could fill my entire page so I will only give you the highlights. He has multiple certifications including National Academy of Sports Medicine, National Strength and Conditioning Association and the American College of Sports Medicine to name a few. In addition, Dr. Irv is an active practitioner and teacher of Tae Kwon Do. He is an incredible business person, trainer and just an all around great guy.
When Dr. Irv founded STEPS in 1986, it was likely the first exclusively personal training center in this part of the country. Since that time they have expanded and moved twice and now their location is 7500 sq. ft. space that houses a state-of-the-art gym, management offices, and other related services such as massage, and Active Release Therapist, and a registered dietician. With Dr. Irv’s leadership STEPS has evolved to an incredible place that assists clients in changing their lives, not just their appearance.
On their website you can read about the STEPS Vision… to promote health and wellness through appropriate exercise and nutritional guidance; STEPS Mission… To help our clients establish and attain healthy lifestyle goals in a safe, fun, and caring atmosphere; and STEPS Methods…. STEPS trainers employ the most current and innovative training techniques based on technology, scientific literature, and creative sharing of ideas and techniques. There is also a fitness blog, newsletters, exercise of the week and links to multiple health and nutrition sites. I learn something every time I talk to Dr. Irv and every time I visit the STEPS website. STEPS truly embodies what wellness and healthy living means today.
