Hope Nagy’s love of fitness is evident on both a professional and personal level. Coupled with her nearly 15 years of experience as a fitness professional is Hope’s dedication to fitness and a healthy lifestyle. A Certified Personal Trainer and group fitness instructor, Hope devotes herself to helping clients change their habits, change their bodies, and change their lives. She discovered her love for fitness while in college at West Chester University, when she became the mascot for a professional football team. After college, Hope went on to be a radio broadcaster at various stations in Philadelphia and New Jersey, but she hung up her headphones and microphone when she became a mom.
As a single mother of two girls, Hope knows how hard it is to make time for physical
fitness, but also knows how important it is. Her drive, determination and discipline are
things that she instills in all of her clients, especially fellow mothers. Hope firmly
believes you can always find time to exercise, and that it is never too late to start your
fitness journey. Eight years ago, at the age of 40, she discovered a love of mountain
biking and adventure racing, and this has led her to spend weekends competing and
racing in the Mid-Atlantic area.
At the core of Hope’s personal and professional success is her belief that there are
absolutely no limits except for the ones that we place on ourselves, and that reaching
our fitness goals improves all areas of our lives. Hope has a no-excuse style, a positive
and motivating personality, and a passion for helping others meet their goals, all of
which makes her a highly sought-after personal trainer.
