Janet Hangen

Franklin, PA 17842

I have been instructing Group Classes and Personal Training since 1985. The challenges of this ever changing fitness industry keep me motivated and having fun. I have been a Director of Group Exercise and Manager of programs and facilities for most of my career. I really love to mentor newer instructors as well. I am blessed with 3 great kids. I love being active....walking/hiking is my favorite outdoor activity. I would like to someday learn to play golf and get better at tennis. Teaching classes and training groups and individual clients is a great joy for me. I love seeing the participants' successes along the way!

    I have been working out with Janet for over 15 years. She is one of, if not, the best fitness instructors in Berks County. Janet has a unique way of making her classes challenging yet fun. She is always well prepared and gets you motivated to want to work out. Her dedication to her craft shines through in every class she teaches.

    I have done personal training with Janet as well as attending group fitness classes! Her knowledge of training and fitness is extremely impressive.
    There is no question that her training produces desired results. Even more important is her personalized attention and compassion for her clients.
    I have suffered with neck problems for years and she adapted my routine to reduce any neck strain and still produce results!

    I've trained with Janet for several years, and I continue to do so because she knows how to get results. She has the uncanny ability to push me when I don't think that I can go any further -- and also knows when one more rep will break me. She knows what she is doing -- more so than any other trainer I've worked with -- and always makes the workouts interesting as well as challenging.
