From one on one, individualized sessions to small group formats, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’ve worked with a trainer before and are looking to get back into an effective program or you’re brand new to the experience and want to learn proper form along with all the basics, let us show you the difference a true fitness professional can make.
The most personal, impacting, and high quality exercise experiences occur during one on one sessions. From your initial consultation and movement assessment to the moment you finally crush that goal you thought was impossible, the individual attention received during your training is unmatched in any other exercise setting.
With nearly all of the same features and personalized attention of one on one training but at a discounted rate and enjoyed with a friend, duo training is a steal. Scalable and easily modified workouts mean your exercise partner can be on your fitness level or 10 floors above.
Small Group Training combines the individual attention, care, and form correction of 1:1 sessions with the dynamic and energetic atmosphere only found in a group setting. With workouts accommodating 3-8 people per class, you’re never left to endure the WOD alone.
Facet Seven was developed with the intention of creating sustained vitality through the application of movement and nutrition.
Regarding movement, we love the FMS doctrine, “Move well. Move often.” What exactly does it mean to move well? We agree with Kelly Starrett of MobilityWod that there are specific positions and anatomical shapes that the body should be able to get into free of injury and without a major strain. Moving well means you have the movement freedom to:
By combining an initial FMS mobility screen with the goal of achieving the seven movement archetypes listed above, we are able to develop specific, completely unique programs for any ability level while still working towards the shared objective to move well.
We believe that Facet Seven will be the most effective “exercise” program you’ve ever experienced.

Forest became interested in the fitness industry as a result of his own experience as a client. In early 2003, he was diagnosed and successfully treated for colon cancer. He has been in full remission since late 2003, but as a result of his treatment, he became very obese, increasing from 180 to 216 pounds in 6 months. In 2007, he finally decided to see a personal fitness instructor and, after 14 months he had substantially improved. After getting serious about eating a healthy diet along with his exercise routine he began seeing results he had never experienced before. So, with the encouragement of his trainer, he entered in the over age 60 (“masters”) category of the Louisiana Bodybuilding competition, held each year in Lafayette. Except for himself, the over age 60 field was composed of very experienced bodybuilding competitors, all of whom had competed successfully as younger men. He placed second in the 2009 competition and in 2010, he competed again for the Louisiana over age 60 title, this time winning first place. Forest has given up competition for his real passion, which is training on general fitness for working people and retirees. Before working here, he enjoyed working with older clients ranging in age from 40 to late 70’s in Metairie, La. He is most empathetic with clients who are interested in improving their general fitness, physical endurance and functional strength, especially core strength from which all fitness ultimately stems. He is particularly adept at dealing with clients who have specific physical limitations and he designs training routines specifically tailored to those clients’ needs. Forest’s approach has been to emulate his own early experience as a personal fitness client, starting with gradual progression in exercise intensity to assist his clients to achieve their specific fitness goals. He monitors his clients’ metrics by periodically documenting progress in functional strength, agility and endurance as well as by measuring weight control, lean body mass and body measurements. Forest believes that your later life is not the end, it can be the beginning.
