Personal Training With Taras Howell, One of Atlanta’s Best

What do professional athletes and people who want to transform their physical appearance and overall quality of life have in common? They both seek out the skillful and knowledgeable personal training expertise of Progressive Medical’s certified in-house personal trainer, Taras Howell.

With over fifteen years of experience training people at every level of fitness, Taras understands the physical, mental, and emotional hurdles that generally keep people from reaching their full fitness potential. He utilizes comprehensive testing measures along with one-on-one consultation to identify any existing obstacles to ultimate fitness. Personal Training at Progressive employs proven methodology, state-of-the-art equipment, and a solid, whole-health foundation to guiding and motivating clients to discover their true potential.


Did you know that by gaining ten pounds of lean muscle mass, you could burn an extra 3,500 calories a week? That’s an extra pound of fat lost while you go about your regular daily activities. Taras teaches his clients how to eat and exercise in a way that will boost their metabolism and ensure they’re burning calories long after they finish working out, with increased energy to keep the weight off for good. This is a great reason for Atlanta area residents to pursue personal training with Taras.


Professional and amateur athletes come from around world train with Taras. Progressive understands the special demands under which athletes bodies must perform. To cater to this special set of demands, Progressive designed The Progressive Edge for Athletes, a testing-based program which assesses an athlete’s nutritional and physiological composition and addresses any weak links, so that the athlete can train and play harder than ever, with progress tracked through regular reports.


Knowledge is power and when it comes to fitness and one of the best ways of knowing any internal hurdles that may be inhibiting your success is bio impedance testing. This painless, non-invasive test electronically measures vital benchmarks in the body’s composition, like true fat content (including deep residing fat that traditional BMI tests often miss), hydration levels, cell wall strength, cellular toxicity, metabolic efficiency (how many calories you can intake daily without gaining weight), and more. “When we know how to treat to the body according to individual cellular challenges, we have a strong foundation from which to achieve substantially better fitness and wellness”, Taras says.


Just as Progressive approaches all areas of wellness, Taras believes that the best results can be achieved when a multi-angled approach is taken. To do this, he employs alternative training methods, like Training with Oxygen, Whole Body Vibration (to increase circulation, bone density, and blood oxygenation), and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and works closely with the Chiropractic and Massage departments at Progressive.


The sports medicine specialists at Progressive Medical Center understand that the nutritional and metabolic needs of an athlete are unique. In response to the heightened set of physical demands put on an athlete’s body, the “concierge” Sports Medicine Specialists at Progressive have developed The Progressive Edge for Athletes, by Progressive Medical, a custom-tailored treatment program, which:

• Identifies any weak links in an athlete’s physical composition, through comprehensive blood, urine and bio-impedance testing.

• Designs a customized treatment plan comprised of integrative treatments and supplementation that will allow the athlete’s body to recover faster, train harder and respond more quickly when it matters most.

• Tracks improvement and changes through reports, reviewed by Progressive Medical doctors with athletes on a regular basis.
