About Us

As a leading provider of individualized personal training, we take pride in offering the best training and fitness instruction. We are dedicated to serving the needs of our customers each and every day.

NU-U Personal Training and Fitness is owned and operated by Gary J. Weiss. 

Gary is a graduate of the National Personal Training Institute (NPTI) and is a Certified Personal Trainer through that organization.  NPTI is not a web based certification, but rather a training school that is accredited by the State Council of Higher Education of Virginia and the ACCSC.  This certification and diploma are only issued after completion of 500 hours of rigorous classroom and practical instruction. 

With additional certifications in Suspension (TRX) Training, Kettlebell Training, and Nutrition, Gary is able to design programs for clients that will not only meet their needs and goals, but do so in a varied, fun, and non-repetitive manner. 

On a personal note, Gary has a varied history.  He is a practicing dentist in Northern Virginia since 1982, with his education giving him his detailed background in anatomy, physiology, and overall health needs.  On the athletic side, he has been a distance runner, hockey player, youth hockey coach since 2000, and fitness enthusiast throughout his life.  Most recently, particularly through his association with NPTI, he has developed an interest in specific strength training, especially power lifting. 

NU-U Personal Training and Fitness currently provides it's services to clients at the fully equipped exercise studio at Gary's home in Oakton or at PureSpeed LLC in Ashburn, Virginia. Outside training is always a possibility (weather permitting) either in Oakton or a mutually agreeable location.  Travel to and training a client at their location (home or office) is possible dependent on location.
