About Precision Training Concepts

Harrisburg fitness studio offers individual instruction on proven techniques at an affordable price

After decades dedicated to the fitness industry, Bryan Sibbach and wife Patty Wallace-Sibbach realized the average gym, even when charging upscale prices, was not meeting the needs of its clientele. To these dedicated professionals, the shortcomings were blatantly obvious: club members left to their own devices, struggling with equipment they didn’t know how to use properly; overcrowded classes where members would sink or swim with one-size-fits-all workouts; and disinterested personal trainers who were too poorly trained to even know how to help their clients. Too often, the member’s outcome was stunted progress, injury, and discouragement. But, since the members were locked into a contract, management didn’t seem to care.

In the face of this failure, Bryan and Patty saw an opportunity to create a boutique fitness studio where they could deliver the kind of instruction and support their clients deserved at a price they could afford. Precision Training Concepts was born. PTC is a boutique fitness studio where clients receive personalized training instruction worthy of professional athletes, nutritional counseling, and encouragement from a staff of qualified professionals invested in their success. And, rather than locking yourself into a contract with an automatic withdrawal whether you attend or not, you are in charge of your accounting, buying packages of sessions that you can use at your own pace.

Three-pronged approach drives client success

At the heart of PTC’s program is a commitment to an holistic approach to fitness. Each private training client receives an assessment of their starting point based on numerous factors, including your age, health, weight, prior conditioning, and injury history. We discuss your fitness goals and design a program specifically for you.

Generally, there are three components to a PTC fitness program:

  • Cardiovascular training – Exercises that get your blood pumping improving heart health and increase your lung capacity. That means more cells getting oxygenated blood, a greater release of endorphins for stress reduction and relaxation, better mood and improved sleep.
  • Resistance training – Exercises that increase muscle mass improve your appearance and increase your endurance, but they also stave off the ravages of age. Exercises that target and tone muscles help with concerns like bone density and balance, so you can remain healthy and active into your golden years.
  • Nutrition – The right fuel keeps the engine humming. In this area we stick to the basics: healthy choices, portion control, and frequent intake of small amounts of nutritious fuel. You won’t have to count calories, weigh and measure every meal, and severely restrict your menu. But you will get solid guidance on your diet, so your food intake does what it’s supposed to do: supply the steady energy you need to accomplish your goals day-in and day-out. Finally, if you have blood sugar issues, Patty is a senior diabetes care specialist, with a broad knowledge of nutritional strategies to maintain healthy glucose levels.

PTC is committed to crafting individual fitness programs that lead to steady gains without unnecessary pain, under the supportive guidance of a highly qualified trainer who is personally invested in your success.

A personal fitness experience without the downside of “the gym”

Our founders considered all the downsides of the average workout center when designing PTC. We never want our clients to feel anonymous, intimidated, aimless, frustrated, bored, or discouraged. Our trainers know that the key to long-term success is engagement. We know that when boredom sets in, physical progress plateaus and your conditioning starts to wane. So, we chart your progress, discuss your experience, and constantly adjust your program to challenge, stimulate and motivate you to achieve even greater success. If your someone who responds to a high-energy group experience with camaraderie and friendly competition, we have group classes to spice up your routine. And, if you can’t get to the studio, you can take advantage of virtual training to maintain your upward trajectory.
