Anna Maria Island Community Center.
How are you doing with your list of New Year’s resolutions? By now you’re either feeling pretty good about yourself or wishing it was still 2008, but don’t get discouraged. In Jeffrey Levine’s world it’s always Dec. 31 and it’s never too late to start.
Levine started working out at the same gym in Boston as the then Boston Patriots. He learned a lot from the players and their professional training standards, which ultimately led him into a career as a personal trainer starting in 1975. Since relocating his home and business permanently to Anna Maria, he has trained all ages from four years old to 86, and says he can add five to 10 years of life to anyone willing to give it a try.
Levine designs a tailor made curriculum targeting the specific needs of each client. No off the rack or pre-packed programs are used. Although he trains all ages and all individuals at every level of fitness, he specializes in clients over 50 concentrating on balance, flexibility and strength training. He says everyone feels and looks better once they get moving resulting in an abundance of energy and a decrease in joint pain.
Because everyone’s fitness level and schedules are different, Levine can arrange training schedules to accommodate the work schedules’ of professionals or the less demanding days of those retired. Many people are most comfortable training in the comfort and privacy of their homes, while others prefer health clubs, and Levine will personalize a program for either location. He also teaches classes at many of the local heath and private clubs both on and off the Island and at the Anna Maria Island Community Center.
With seasonal residents and visitors starting to come back to Anna Maria, Levine expects to be busy training them while they escape Northern winters. When it’s time for them to return, he sends his clients home with a folder of exercises for them to continue and a whole bunch of encouragement. In fact, one of the things he does best is being a cheerleader for his clients. He never leaves your side during a session and encourages you to work towards the highest level of your ability.
Remember the old saying, If you don’t have your health you don’t have anything.” Levine is committed to helping his clients improve the quality of their lives through a sensible and personalized workout program. Forget the New Year’s resolutions. Start investing in your life now. Call Levine – he’s the man to get you out of the recliner and into your gym shorts.
