Hi, this is Shane Doll, founder of Shaping Concepts Personal Training Studios. Thanks for coming to this page to learn more about the fitness consulting services that we provide.

As a fitness coach and Charleston personal trainer with over twenty years of experience helping individuals get the most from their exercise routines, I can tell you that the single most important factor in an effective program is personalization.

What makes Charleston fitness consulting different at Shaping Concepts...

I know a lot of personal trainers throw around the word "personalization" as a cliche term, but truly designing programs around an individual's unique needs is something we take great pride in here at Shaping Concepts.

This far extends beyond having a different set of exercises to follow than someone else. Since no people are exactly alike and will have the same needs and goals, we take a very holistic approach to personalization.

This starts with an extensive assessment and screening process. Not only will we be looking for possible muscle imbalances and movement pattern deviations, but also for things like dietary deficiencies and potential hormonal imbalances.

Shaping Concepts is the ONLY fitness training facility in Charleston to offer on-site salivary hormonal testing and screening to help identify possible imbalances. We also have several health and medical professionals on our advisory board to assist us when issues may arise that are out of our scope of practice.

To get to the point, we go to great lengths to provide our clients with all the support they need to reach their goals. I learned very early on as a personal trainer that truly helping each client often required expertise other than what I specialized in.

The collaboration and co-venture working relationships with several health and medical specialists in the Charleston area, has helped Shaping Concepts become a leader in fitness consulting for the Lowcountry since 2003.

In essence, we don't try to do everything on our own and use a team approach to providing solutions for our client's needs. If we can help you with an exercise program, be it on-site with personal training or with program design to be done in-home or in the gym, we'll tell you that.

On the flip side, if you're best interests would be served by first referring you to another health and medical professional, we'll tell you that as well.

While some other Charleston gyms may have personal trainers who simply try to sell you on a "package," we'll never do that. In fact, all our clients meet with myself or my partner prior to starting any program. By meeting with an owner up front, you can rest assured that you won't be sold on anything.

Our objectives first and foremost is to become a trusted resource and advisor for your health and fitness needs. Even if that just means some recommendations, we're happy to provide the assistance as we know in the end you'll share your experience with others.

en At 48 Years Old I Was Able To Lose 30 Pounds And Go From A Size 12 To A Size 2. When I Get Up In The Morning I Can Wear Anything I Want!"

"When I came to Shaping Concepts I was 48 years old, 157 pounds and I wore a size 12. Getting dressed in the morning was depressing. I looked and felt fat in all my clothes. Looking in mirrors was something I avoided.

A friend of mine told me she went to Shaping Concepts. She was in her 50's and she looked hot! How many times had I joined a gym? How may times had I purchased fitness equipment? I decided this might be my last hope. Depression had clearly set in.

Although I was skeptical at first and it took me a while to get my nutrition and cardio on track, then end result was nothing less than amazing. Even at 48 years old I was able to lose 30 pounds and get down to a size 0-2. Now, when I get dressed in the morning I can wear anything I want.

Yes, outside I look good but the biggest change for me is the inner peace and comfort I feel within. I'm a content person today, no more inner chaos, and I'm truly loving life. Shaping Concepts is so much more than a gym. Every time I walk in the the door I feel love, support, kindness and encouragement."

"With The Help Of My Personal Trainer I Lost 18 Pounds And 7% Body Fat Before My Wedding Day! I Think It's One Of The Best Investments You Can Make For Yourself."

"I started working out at Shaping Concepts to lose weight for my wedding day. With the help of my trainer, Andrew Duffy I was able to lose 18 pounds and 7% body fat. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. I loved the fact that he took the time to build workouts just for me and he knew the best way to push me.

Everyone at Shaping Concepts makes you feel so comfortable when you're in the studio. It's not intimidating like a traditional gym. The personal trainers here are wonderful and they do a good job of targeting the areas you want to work on.

The functional exercise routines and Shane's nutrition strategies provide a great combination of working hard and eating right that can change your life forever. I think it's one of the best investments you can make for yourself. Hopefully people who see what I've done realize that they can do it too."

"My Personal Trainer Andrew Duffy Has Helped Me Lose 37 Pounds, 10 Inches, And 10% Body Fat. He Coaches Me, Pushes Me, And Most Of All He Cares."

"Since joining Shaping Concepts, my trainer Andrew Duffy has help me lose 37 pounds, 10 inches, and 10% body fat. I was faithful in following his advice in regards to how to eat, what to eat, and how to do my cardio outside of the studio. And what can I say, it worked!

I've been a member at several Charleston gyms but I never pushed myself like my Andrew does and that has made a big difference. He coaches me, pushes me, and most of all, he cares. I don't feel like I'm just a number on a list with him. He wants me to succeed and he helps me do that.

I love being thin, but more than that, I love seeing the definition in my body. I feel strong and healthy but best of all I feel younger at 41 than I did when I was 20. I can't thank Andrew enough for helping me change my life!"

No pressure, no pitches, I promise. We’ll sit down and talk about where you’re at now and more importantly where you want to go. If we’re a good fit we’ll get started, if not we’ll part ways friends and I’ll be happy to give you my suggestions and advice.

Sound fair enough?

I’m sure you may have questions, concerns, and even doubts but don’t let that keep you from taking action and at least giving my programs a shot. A lot of people you see on this page and others found on the success stories page had the same concerns and doubts before getting started. But they took action and many will tell you they were forever changed by their decision.
