Personal Training Sessions - Certified Personal Trainer Frances McPeek


Frances McPeek graduated from Robert Morris University in May 2019 earning a degree in psychology with a concentration in sports. Throughout her time at the university she was involved at the Student Recreation Center, where she served as a group fitness instructor, service desk monitor, and a fitness intern where she helped teach students the material needed to pass for the ACE Personal Training Exam. She earned her personal trainer certification from ACE in December of 2018. Post graduation she has gotten experience at InnerStrength, where she served as a coaching intern for young athletes and adults, as well as at the Edgeworth Club in Sewickley providing personal training and group exercise services to members. Frances loves to hear the success stories of members and loves that she took part in helping them choose to become a more confident and stronger version of themselves! 


Frances started her fitness journey when she was younger by being involved with soccer. She enjoyed being an active member in indoor, club, recreational, competitive, and traveling soccer. Once she was a junior in high school, her teammates wanted to partake in some off-season team bonding by taking a Zumba class at the local YMCA. After taking a few classes, a teammate and her wanted to try a more challenging class, they chose Shaun T’s Insanity. This opened up a can of worms in the fitness relm for Frances. She went to classes everyday and sometimes even did three classes a day, along with personal training sessions. For the next season, Frances noticed she was not as sore from conditioning and loved that she could push her body and mind to accomplish more than what it could before. Once at college, she wanted to remain as physically active as possible but making life adjustments made it hard for her. The beginning of junior year rolls around and Frances looked down and realized that she has gained 15lbs and was at the lowest self-confidence she has experienced. She started to work out more and became more mindful of her eating habits. She wanted to be better. She then got hired to become a Move-It function fitness instructor and an Escape fitness Battlefit Instructor. During senior year she had great accountability buddies that were there for her at 9am before class to get a good sweat sesh, on Saturdays when she used to tell herself it was the weekend, give yourself a break, and in the evenings when she felt that she had too much to do with classes to get a good workout in. She was dedicated to improving herself and noticed that the transformation was not only physically but mentally. She was more positive, had more of a glass-half-full outlook, and was less stressed.
