The Gym Is Not For Everyone

Personal Training For Over 40.

80% of the people who start an exercise program quit within the first 5 months. Why?

Did you know 80% of people age 40, 50, 60 who began going to the gym to workout, quit going during the first 5 months? … At first, I was shocked at how high this number was, then I realized, I have done the same thing.

Before I built my private studio in North Dallas to be the go-to personal trainer for men and women 40 and older I was that guy.

A man in my 50’s. The last thing I felt comfortable doing was walking into a gym and working out around a much younger age group. No, I am not vain, it just did not feel right. Even though I lived in the gym the first 30 years of my life. Just the thought of working out around other people discouraged me from going and this was years before covid.

So I can understand how intimidating it can feel to start an exercise program at one of the big box gyms. And If you have no clue about what to do, it would be even more frustrating.


My name is Chris Ownbey

I’m a 50-year-old personal trainer with more than 30 years in the fitness industry. I specialize in training Men and Women 40+ in a clean, private one-on-one studio located in North Dallas.

I understand as we get older our reasons to exercise have changed. it’s not about vanity anymore, it’s about longevity, so our workouts should change as well.

The big-box gyms are not for everyone. They can be confusing and intimidating.

That is the reason my clients come to work out with me. I own and operate a private studio located in North Dallas that specializes in personal training for men and women 40 and older. We solve the 3 reasons most people do not go or quit going to the gym.

  • Time. Instead of 60-minute workouts, we offer 30-minute workouts.
  • Intimidation. We are a private studio. And we offer only one on one sessions. Just you and your private trainer.
  • Motivation. It’s tough to stay motivated with this thing called “LIFE” hitting you from all sides. WE get caught up in helping others and forget about ourselves.
  • But “YOU”. Your health and well-being should be the most important thing.
  • Start feeling better.
  • Have more energy.

To your Health
Chris Ownbey
