The Premier Athletic Complex in Leander now offers personal fitness training options along with its existing basketball and volleyball programs.
In February the facility hired Steve Hudson to develop and manage the new PAC-Fit program that offers fitness classes, Pilates and personal training, Hudson said.
PAC-Fit’s large-group classes meet for an hour at various times on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings and follow a boot camp–style format, said Hudson, who has been a certified personal trainer for 22 years. Large-group classes cost $99 per month and do not require a contract or additional fees.
Hudson said participants of all ages and fitness levels are welcome, and he often suggests modifications during class to meet people’s diverse needs and limitations.
“My goal is to challenge people but to keep them injury-free,” Hudson said, adding that his clients often have their own fitness goals in mind from the start. “They’re the type of people [who]don’t run out of goals,” he said.
Other training options are available through PAC-Fit and include a small-group format—which is usually three to six people per class—or private sessions, said Hudson, who also offers Pilates instruction.
Austin resident Tasha Catoire, who began training with Hudson more than three years ago at another location, said the personalized workouts are an effective and educational experience.
“I was definitely willing to go wherever [Steve] was,” Catoire said. “He just has an energy and a style about him. He’s very invested with where your needs are.”
Nelson Terroba, PAC facilities and basketball director for the PAC, said Hudson’s teaching style and passion for building the program has fit in well with the educational philosophy of the PAC.
“We’re very pleased to have Steve here,” Terroba said. “You can tell [he is]someone who really takes pride in their craft.”
The PAC opened in October 2012 and is home to the Centex Attack select basketball and Texas Eclipse club volleyball programs. A variety of other youth and adult leagues, skills academies, clinics and summer camps are available for both sports.
The 42,000-square-foot facility features six hardwood courts that are frequently used for select basketball and club volleyball tournaments as well as special events such as birthday parties and lock-ins, Terroba said.
“The quality of our programming and the educational foundation of what we do [is important],” Terroba said. “How we execute every program is a reflection of that.”
