Bio

DeWayne Moore has been a personal trainer since 2005, and during that time he has worked with numerous clients at in Blacksburg, VA, Richmond, VA and Cary, NC. He is certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and specializes in corrective exercise. His focus is functional movement, which assesses a person’s kinetic patterns and determines muscle imbalances which could potentially lead to injury. DeWayne designs workout regimes to correct those problems and to increase functionality not only for fitness, but for everyday activities as well. Once functional equilibrium is established, he guides clients through performance training designed to teach them how to use their muscles more efficiently, gaining the greatest possible response and benefit from their time spent in the weight room. These abilities are invaluable for all training focuses—from weight loss to sports—and a certified personal trainer such as DeWayne is capable of maximizing a client’s potential for growth and learning.

Finally, let your trainer lead you and your group to your fitness goals. Any number of sessions can be purchased at one time. Full payment is due at the time of the purchase.

Orientation Sessions

All members with at least a month of membership are entitled to two Orientation sessions. These sessions are are very general in nature and meant to ensure you’re getting the most out of your membership by having one of our staff take you through a workout covering a wide range of the equipment and facilities that The Weight Club has to offer. Please see the front desk about scheduling an Orientation session.
