What makes a certified trainer an Astro Hero Trainer?
Aside from an impressive resume, P2 Personal Training’s Astro Hero Trainers do more than look good on paper. They possess intangible assets that are rare to find. Assets that are not always seen between the lines of drying ink, but definitely stand out when the trainer is in motion. Assets that bring new life to P2PT and its’ clientele! Quite simply, P2PT calls it “Heart and Soul.” It’s something that can’t be taught. You either have it or you don’t and P2PT Astro Hero Trainers have the lion’s share!
Simply put, P2PT Astro Hero Trainers possess an inner passion to help others; not for fame or riches, but for the satisfaction of making a difference in people’s lives!
P2 Personal Training's “Astro Durance Hero Trainers” are;
- They are fitness professionals involved in exercise prescription and instruction.
- They motivate clients by setting goals and providing feedback and accountability to their clients. They measure their clients' strengths and weaknesses with fitness assessments. These fitness assessments may also be performed before and after a workout program to measure their clients' improvements in physical fitness.
- They educate their clients in many other aspects of wellness besides exercise, including general health and nutritional guidelines.
P2PT Astro Hero Trainers!
Astro Hero Trainer – Chad Frazier
What do you think the odds would be to enter the world of fitness if you grew up in a home environment that nourished it from the cradle on? You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to get the correct answer to this one – it was bound to happen!
“I grew up immersed in fitness my entire life”, Chad Frazier said with a smile. The same smile he is now recognized for at P2 Personal Training by both clients and staff alike. “My father is an exercise physiologist, and my mom is a physical therapist. I was in sports all my life – I grew up ‘BREATHING’ health and fitness.”
Chad Frazier, a Certified Personal Trainer and entrepreneur, joined P2 Personal Training’s list of Astro-Hero Trainers shortly after they opened the Astro-Durance Bungee Arena in Cape Coral, Florida. When asked why he teamed up with Patty Cummings, owner and developer of Astro-Durance Bungee Training, he was quick to answer, and again, with a smile.
“I am impressed with the Astro-Durance Bungee portion of P2PT. I believe in the product. A lot of the issues people run into in a gym workout, over time, has an adverse effect on joints. Astro-Durance helps people to safely work out their muscle groups and have a lot of fun too.”
Chad has a dedicated career in helping others achieve their goals.
“Fitness is a part of who I am. I love it and understand the benefits of it. No matter what their goal, it is rewarding to help others, whether it is someone who wants to put on muscle mass, or someone who wants to trim down and tone.”
We asked Chad what he felt the biggest challenge was for him as a personal trainer. His answer rings true and spoken from the heart like a well-seasoned mentor.
“The biggest challenge is helping someone to believe that they are able to accomplish what I already know they can. When a person becomes more secure about their body, the emotional benefits are great to see, especially when a person becomes more confident. Their biggest challenge is also my greatest reward. I actually love being able to help people reach their goals and impact their lives. I love being a piece of the small puzzle to help them be able to do that.” In return, Chad’s clients have given him many praises on his personal training techniques and look forward to working out with him.
They like the studio atmosphere and, of course, they love the Bungee! The studio has a certain flair, but what makes it great are the Astro Hero staff and Astro Hero clientele! Patty Cummings, owner of P2 Personal Training and creator of the Astro-Durance Bungee Program is proud to have Chad on her team of Astro Hero Trainers. Chad describes working with Patty at P2PT this way…
“I like working with Patty. She seems to have a great relationship with her clientele. When a person has that personal relationship, people become a part and want to come in. It’s positive.”

Astro Hero Trainer – Zak Teachout
Zak Teachout is a certified personal trainer specializing in corrective exercise, nutrition, weight loss, and strength training. His own experience with obesity has given him valuable insight when it comes to coaching his clients.
“I was obese most of my life, lived a sedentary lifestyle and turned to food for comfort. Weighing 350 pounds at my heaviest, I was eating myself to death. But four years and 130 pounds ago I decided to put down the pizza and pick up the barbell. In all likelihood, fitness saved my life. It has helped me find my smile, my drive, and my zen.”
He has since turned his passion into a career, helping people to find their smile and confidence through fitness. When asked what he enjoys the most about training, Zak had this to say:
“The most exciting part of my day is being a part of your success story, whether it’s improving balance and range of motion, or fitting into that old pair of jeans. That's why I do what I do!”

Astro Hero Trainer – Norley Cervantes
My desire to learn led me to enroll at The Heritage Institute in Fort Myers, Florida where I received an Occupational Associate for Personal Training as well as my Personal Trainer Certification through the American Council on Exercise. During my time at Heritage, while learning the reasons behind my sport training, I began to recognize and value the importance of exercise for all those that don’t participate in sports and likely never will. I learned the negative effects of exercise when done incorrectly.
After graduating from Heritage Institute, I worked in private studios as well as larger gyms. While I enjoyed helping many different types of people, I didn't like that the emphasis was far greater on sales rather than technical skills and education.
In December of 2013 I began working at Symmetry. Their NO FADS - ALL FITNESS approach is what originally caught my attention. After interviewing, I saw how much they really care about their clients. It was obvious how much they value education and how knowledgeable they are. Since working there, I completed an advanced Conditioning Coach Certification in MMA by the National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association. I have learned more under Jay and the Symmetry team in the last 4 months than I have during my time at Heritage. If I’m not working with a new client I’m buried in an anatomy book, studying the life size skeleton here, or reading research.
After six year of training, I had the opportunity to work with a chiropractor as an assistant and rehab specialist. Through that time, I learned many ways to work with clients that had injuries. This became a passion for me so I am currently studying to be a physical therapist.
