2017 Best of The Best Personal Trainer

Advantage Personal Training Named Best Personal Trainer for Third Consecutive Year

Advantage Personal Training, with facilities in Mystic and Niantic, was named Best Personal Trainer for the third consecutive year in The Day’s annual Best Of Readers’ Choice Awards. APT has won every year since the contest began in 2015. More than 10,000 Day readers cast their votes.

“We are thrilled to once again be named Best Personal Trainers,” said Greg Drab, co-owner of Advantage Personal Training. “Our motto here is that we are the best part of our clients’ day, and this award again shows to us that we are living our motto.”

“We are constantly working to make our facilities and our trainers the best they can be,” said Calvin McCoy, co-owner of APT. McCoy noted that the Niantic gym recently moved to an expanded location at 6 Liberty Way in order to be able to provide even more services and equipment to clients.

“We want to thank all our clients, past, present and future, who support us and appreciate what we do,” McCoy said. “If you haven’t been to Advantage, or if you haven’t been in a while, please come in and see us – we would love to show you around!”

Drab added, “We currently have a 15-day Jump Start Program that is perfect for someone who wants to give the gym a test drive. You can find details on our website.”
