Indy Fitness Essentials

Safe, Effective, Quantified Personal Training.

Our Story

Claudia and Laura have been personal training for over 11 years. Once the gym they were working for closed their doors, they each ventured out on their own as independent personal trainers. Over the last two years they realized they each had a unique offering for their clients that fit hand in hand. Claudia specializes in helping people move better so that they are pain-free and feeling good (FMS)! Laura specializes in using the latest technology (ARX) which provides safe, effective, and quantified strength training. It is beneficial in building stronger bones, rehabbing tendons and ligaments, improving muscular strength, extending quality of life, and optimizing metabolic and cardiovascular health.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help others feel comfortable and confident in working out. Move well and move often! We take the guesswork out of what you should do in order to get the best results in the right amount of time.

We are here to guide you
