Frequently Asked Questions
I haven’t exercised in years. Can I do a Greco class?
Yes. Anyone can!
The Greco method is meticulously designed so an Olympic gold medalist AND a beginner can do the same class, at the same time. Both hitting their personal maximum.
Trainers start each class by demonstrating each exercise. They carefully explain each movement so newcomers can learn and fitness buffs can perfect their form. If you’re just starting out, you can use lighter weights and do slower and fewer reps. Go at your own pace. Plus, our trainers demonstrate alternative versions of exercises for beginners.
Our certified trainers will be by your side over the duration of the class, encouraging you and perfecting your form.
Most importantly, you’re not alone. Our classes are filled with all skill levels. We encourage and support everyone. After all, even the greatest athletes had to start somewhere.
How much does it cost? I have heard it is expensive.
We offer unlimited memberships starting at $79 monthly. Our Personal Training Sessions start at just $49 a session with a Certified Trainer.
Let’s compare – Some gyms offer you rock bottom prices, but no trainers to plan, prepare or motivate you. Others offer personal trainers but charge a fortune. Greco offers you a month of unlimited group workouts with expert trainers at less cost than some gyms charge for a single personal training session.
Come for a consultation and we will find a program that is best suited for you. One thing is for sure: you will not find a better bang for your fitness buck anywhere.
What class would you recommend if I want to lose weight?
The Greco Method is designed to maintain an optimal level of metabolic conditioning, this means that every single class we offer is targeting fat loss!

Can I work-out at Greco if I have any injury?
Trainer knowledge is a topic we take very seriously at Greco. Our personal trainers are highly qualified individuals who are constantly progressing their knowledge and growing with the fitness injury. Not only do our classes provide modifications to the exercises, but a qualified trainer will work with you to help you move pain free.
Many injuries are the result of muscular imbalances in the body. The Greco Method takes the thought out of your workouts. We have designed a program that is imbalance/injury preventative! We will target all muscle groups in a complimentary fashion, keeping your body injury free and balanced.
For more serious injuries, we highly recommend working with one of our highly qualified personal trainers to speed up your recovery.
