Personal Training in Morristown

Big Bear Strength and Conditioning

True 1:1 Functional Personal Training
Whether you want to shed extra pounds, kick up your cardio or just have more energy, consider personal training at Big Bear Strength and Conditioning, a division of Morris Spine & Sport. It’s no surprise that many people don’t like the idea of working out in a jam-packed gym, where it seems like all eyes are on you and your level of fitness. There’s no intimidation factor here, just encouraging support to help you achieve your goals!

We currently serve clients from age 13 through age 83, helping high school and college athletes, runners, weekend warriors, and others who just want to take a true 1:1 functional personal training approach. We are also one of the first adopters of the Power Plate technology, which fully supports efficiency and increased efficacy.

Plans Customized For You

No two clients are alike, so we personalize training sessions to meet each individual’s unique needs. Whether you’re a new mom looking to get back in shape, a runner hoping to compete in an upcoming marathon, or a senior seeking to stay active in your golden years, our trainers, Jim and Connor, will customize a plan for you.

Our Guiding Philosophies

Time Under Tension (TUT) – this emphasizes disciplined movements that emphasize ensuring every rep is done with the best possible form – which supports efficiency and effectiveness.

Compound movements and minimal breaks – also supports efficiency and effectiveness.

Core. Balance. Stability. – You’ll get full body workouts, but we believe that everyone benefits from a solid foundation. This is foundational not only for athletes but for everyone. Core, balance, and stability takes on particular importance as we age.
