Hello! My name is Cole Shaffner, I am a 21 year old Personal Trainer. I began my fitness journey back in high school, where I had some pretty terrible habits and got into a lot of drugs and alcohol. Eventually, this landed me in the hospital with blood clots in my lungs. It changed my life dramatically but also gave me a new outlook on life. A second chance to make things different. After a lengthy recovery process I started to go to the gym more than ever. That’s when I found fitness and a drive to help others. I started my own garage gym where all I had was a squat rack, some plates, and a few dumbbells. I started to post unique and creative exercise content and the feedback was amazing. This inspired not only the name “Garagegainz” but a minimal equipment approach to fitness. Using what you have. A no excuses mindset.
“Earn Your Rest” is a motto I live by. With everything in life you have to earn it. That’s why I love fitness, there’s no easy path. You earn your results on the daily.
I specialize in bodybuilding type exercises with a goal of building muscle while staying as lean as possible year round. With me as your trainer you will have access to the workouts I use daily. Along with nutrition tips, exercise techniques, and daily motivation. I have been training clients for over 3 years and it’s my passion. To help people reach their goals. What are you waiting for? Take that next step towards your goals, with me by your side.
