Q & A with The Balance owner Joel Paavola:
Q:What is the best way to have a successful workout experience?
Have fun with it! The Balance creates an environment enjoyable for everyone, focusing on fitness and positivity.
Q: What sparked your passion for training others?
A: “Personally, my passion isn’t quite so much that it is training others (as it may seem from an outside view) but rather learning and progressing my knowledge in the field of exercise and then teaching things that I have learned to others. So, I would say that my passion has more to do with teaching, and I just happen to be a teacher that teaches fitness and health than a passion for training.”
Q: What sets you apart from other fitness facilities?
A: “We aren’t trying to be different than other fitness places or personal training places. I think that we just go about the process of teaching fitness in a way that makes us very different. I would like to think that we work on a level that tries to meet individuals where they are currently and show them how they can step up to a higher level. This is applicable through biomechanics, movement, strength, cardiovascular, nutritionally, you name it.”
Q: What is one of the most amazing things you have seen throughout your experience of being a trainer?
A: “To pinpoint any one situation as the most amazing after close to 20 years in the fitness business would be impossible for me. I think everyone that can overcome obstacles, both physical as well as psychological, is an amazing thing.”
Q: What is the best advice you have for someone who is looking to improve their wellness?
A: “Best advice? Come to The Balance and find out!”
The entire Balance Training staff strives to help a trainee’s experience feel personal and unique in a fun and safe environment. Their goal is to show people, through the field of exercise, how they can be progressive to take charge of their own personal health and fitness whatever the individuals goals may be.
Joel states, a person’s health is the singular one aspect that they cannot live without, at least, not for very long. “So really, how lucky are we as fitness coaches to help people live longer, better, and healthier lives?” Joel asks. “I can’t think of many professions outside the medical field that can say the same.” Joel feels fortunate to help people live longer, fuller lives but it is really the clients at The Balance who are the lucky ones.
