Connie Cramer Personal Trainer, Mahopac

We are part of The Trust Project

For as long as Connie Cramer has been a personal fitness trainer, she wanted to own a studio. She reached that goal several years opening in Yorktown and now, she’s taken her boutique studio to Mahopac.

“I’m still pinching myself, is it real,” Cramer said last week.

Connie Cramer Personal Trainer relocated in August along the Mahopac/ Somers border on Miller Street after Cramer had been in Yorktown for a few years. Before that, she had a studio out of her home and then prior to that she worked at bigger gyms like New York Sports Club. Describing the new space as bright and beautiful, Cramer already feels like it’s home.

An acquaintance that Cramer has known for several years tipped her off about the available space in Mahopac and when she visited her soon-to-be new home, she just fell in love with it.

“It’s a great space,” she said. “My clients love it.”

Cramer said she offers a lot of functional and free flowing training that includes TRX suspension training, kettle bells, and free motion cables. Her goal was to create a more boutique style studio where people seeking fitness can go to a gym that isn’t as intimidating as in big gyms where there might be a muscle guy slamming weights in the corner.

Cramer likes to have clients focus on natural body movements and functional training where any exercises doesn’t just focus on one muscle group. She likes to incorporate movements that include core, flexibility and overall strength.

“I like to work on the full body,” Cramer said.

Each training session Cramer tries to target the person’s fitness level and goals, rather than a one size fits all approach. So whether it’s weight loss or overall toning and sculpting of the body, Cramer has a workout for everyone. Clients can range from Carmel to all the way down in Katonah.

Cramer has had many success stories where clients started one way and transformed into another person. She’s had women come in and lose between 10 and 40 pounds.

For residents looking to get into better shape as the New Year approaches, Cramer is offering a holiday promotion. Calling it “The Little Black Dress Challenge” Cramer is offering ladies to come during the holiday season and take group classes and personal training sessions for four weeks. During that time, Cramer is going to help them with their diet and encourage them to avoid tempting foods. At the end, she plans on a holding a little black dress bash.

Cramer has been a fitness buff most of her adult life, starting when she was in her 20s. When she was growing up, she never wanted to sweat or mess up her hair. But then when she started to attend dance classes, she became more active and did spin classes and aerobics when both were really popular.

She also learned to play tennis and ski later in life. And she now has her own gym in Mahopac as another lifetime feat reached.

“I just wanted to do something that was different, I just wanted to do something that was healthy,” Cramer said. “I just fell in love with movement. I just enjoy working out.”
