SMX is a specialty personal training studio in New Orleans. All workouts are conducted by appointment with a personal trainer. There are no contracts, dues, or initiation fees. The studio was completely renovated in 2014 to offer a fresh new design and the best exercise equipment available. The training studio is kept meticulously clean on a daily basis, and a specialty cleaning service regularly sanitizes all equipment and other touch points. SMX is located steps away from Magazine Street Uptown, one block from the Whole Foods Market. On-street and off-street parking is available.



There are no contracts, dues, or long-term commitments. Our personal training clients simply pay per session, and our training rate is $45 per session. There is no charge for the first session. During the first session, we get to know you and become familiar with your specific goals and potential limitations, and work with you to develop a customized exercise program (because slow-motion training is only one facet of what we do). We will also perform a sample workout to tie everything together. The first session takes approximately 1 hour. Subsequent sessions typically last approximately 30 minutes.
