What makes VICTOR DEAN TRAINING different?
We don’t do sales. We do fitness here at VDT.
Here at Victor Dean Training, I want every customer to have a great experience. I want every staff member to come across as organized, caring, and having the ultimate in professional knowledge. We are unique and that means that not every person walking in the door is going to find what they’re looking for. Though we most certainly extend ourselves for customers outside of these parameters, here’s what our typical customer looks like and why we may or may not be the right fit for you:
THIRTY TO FIFTY PLUS YEARS OF AGE AND THEIR FAMILIES
Customers in this age range are typically looking for things like cleanliness, no waiting, and excellent customer service. Younger people in their twenties are more likely to seek the social aspect of a large gym with thousands of people to meet.
LIVES OR WORKS IN WILLIAMSVILLE, AMHERST, OR CLARENCE
Located on the corner of Sheridan and Evans, our location is very convenient if your travels bring you to this area of Western New York. We have a huge parking lot that is very accessible and we are a mile or less from Main Street, the 290, and the I-90. Though we do have customers who regularly commute from places like Ellicottville and Orchard Park to see us, you are sure to find other gyms in closer proximity to those areas.
EDUCATED WORKING PROFESSIONAL OR RETIRED PROFESSIONAL
Customers with an education will generally value my educational background as well as that of my staff. We have degrees from major universities while most trainers at large commercial gyms have weekend certifications. If you are looking for advice from fitness professionals who have spent years studying exercise and nutrition, this is the place for you. Those who are looking for simpler, less scientific, or cheaper advice are more likely to seek out a large commercial gym.
We have many families who join together. Most gyms are not family oriented, while we provide climbing walls and fitness programs for kids of all ages. We also offer individualized training for seniors with a vast array of physical conditions or those recovering from a surgery or a fall. We do our best to play age appropriate music and value health over beauty when it comes to working out. If you’re looking for a totally kid free environment with heavy metal music, this may not be a good fit for you.
HAS SERIOUS GOALS OR SERIOUS INJURIES
Most of our customers are coming to us because they have serious goals. We have many customers who have lost over forty pounds, gotten off medications, learned to walk again after a debilitating injury, or even come back from being paralyzed. From lowering their cholesterol and getting off statin drugs to finally dropping that unwanted weight for their wedding in six weeks, our customers are coming to us because we are results oriented. Our equipment was not chosen because it was the cheapest or because it has a fancy hydraulic seat. I personally selected our equipment based on results. You can absolutely rent a plain treadmill and a set of dumbbells cheaper at a large commercial gym.
RESPECTFUL AND FRIENDLY
My members tell me regularly how much they enjoy an environment that is fun and friendly. We have athletes, average Joes, and soccer moms and everyone greets each other with a smile and a wave. We screen our members before allowing them access to our facility and it shows. The more friendly members we have, the more friendly members we have because friendly members bring in more friendly members. If you’re not wanting to smile or say hello on a regular basis, this may not be the place for you.
Please contact us to set up a tour and an interview. Whether you’re interested in signing up for a gym membership or you’re looking to get involved in one of our structured programs, VDT is the place to come to get results and have fun doing it. I look forward to seeing you and your family soon!
