Hi, this is Shane Doll, founder of Shaping Concepts Personal Training Studios. Thanks for coming to this page to learn more about the private fitness training we provide for Charleston area residents.

Let me just start out by saying if you're not overly excited about joining a health club and experiencing the unwelcome stares, intimidation, over-crowding, possible embarrassment with not knowing what to do, and everything else associated with being in a big gym, you're definitely not alone!

Before I started Shaping Concepts back in 2003, I worked at a few of the big health clubs in town. While I'm very appreciative for the opportunities and have nothing negative to say about the facilities where I worked, let's just say the environment wasn't for me.

Big health clubs and gyms are great for people who have a regular exercise routine, don't really need accountability, and basically just want access to equipment and amenities. After all that's what they really provide, leasing you the space and access to exercise.

For Charleston area residents who want an alternative to the big health clubs and gyms...

But you already know that, and if you're reading this page I'll take it that you're not real hot on the environment with a typical health club. You're kind of left alone to figure out things on your own and unfortunately you're a "member" and not a client.

With that comes an apparently obvious lack of personal attention, service, and guidance. For those just starting an exercise routine or those who would like instruction, this is certainly far from optimal.

Sure most of the big health clubs offer personal trainers, after all I used to be one, but far too often the personal training departments are merely revenue centers for the club where "package sales" are the only real concern at the management level.

Results don't matter much in the big picture because the health club business model is built around memberships. For all these reasons and others, I decided health clubs weren't for me.

What makes Shaping Concepts different, in essence what you can expect...

When I started Shaping Concepts I had a vision of providing a private environment for Charleston area residents to not only work out, but also to receive hands-on coaching with nutrition and lifestyle changes.

A place where everyone could feel like they were part of a family and not just another number. A place where you would be greeted by name when you walked in the door and always felt comfortable. A place where it didn't matter how much weight you had to lose, what you wore, if you had make-up on, or anything like that.

Just a place to train, get better every day, and improve your quality of life. Everyone around you doing the same thing with an upbeat and positive environment of energy, encouragement, and support.

I feel blessed and fortunate to be able to say we've created that very environment at Shaping Concepts. A private fitness training facility where people and results matter!

I could go on and on telling you about all the ways Shaping Concepts differs from most Charleston area gyms and health clubs, but I rather you hear it from our clients. What follows on this page is just a little more about what makes us different. I encourage you to read our success stories page, browse through the testimonials and reviews, then make up your own mind.

After that simply fill in the web-form on this page for our FREE, no-obligations consultation and trial to experience the difference for yourself. I give you my word there will be no high pressure sales tactics..

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!"
