About this pro

Cavanaugh Fitness offers customized, elite personal training to residents of Virginia Beach and surrounding areas.  Our personal training clients enjoy a robust array of fitness training opportunities, in addition to general wellness and motivational coaching. Whether you are new to the idea of working with a personal trainer or a seasoned fitness industry client, Cavanaugh Fitness will allow you to experience an unparalleled level of professionalism and collaboration.  Those two words in conjunction may sound cliché but one does not need to travel far to find an enthusiastic fitness professional who dubbed themselves a “personal trainer.”  We are aware of this growing and concerning trend and, therefore, make every effort to display our professionalism through education and certificate backed techniques and titles. Other professionals might also emphasize their ability to collaborate with their clients but instead proceed with developing rote and repetitious training programs. Cavanaugh Fitness is accustomed to tailoring training packages for clients with various fitness goals. If your fitness interest lies in losing weight, strength building, enhancing performance or injury prevention, Cavanaugh Fitness is the brand for you.

Cavanaugh Fitness offers elite, customized fitness training to a wide range of local, Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads customers. Brian Cavanaugh, founder, and his wife, Li Ling Cavanaugh, bring a combined 38 years of physical fitness expertise to their clientele. With respective training and education in personal training and physical therapy; they offer their clients a holistic approach to fitness and exercise. Their customized sessions and plans take every individual client’s strengths, aptitude, goals and concerns into account.  
Founder, Brian Cavanaugh’s passion for fitness and exemplary human performance started early. As a life-long Virginia Beach local, his fitness roots are planted here. Brian began martial arts training at the age of 9, competed nationally in karate and American kickboxing and earned a black belt at the age of 17. His attention to small details, earned the respect and admiration of his martial arts trainers, who enthusiastically encouraged him to pursue instructor training.
While employed at NIMA Karate, as a head instructor, Brian took an added interest in strength training to enhance his marital arts performance. He joined Wareing’s Gym to further cultivate his strength training skills and was once again observed to have an intuitive, helpful, non-judgemental and compassionate  approach to fitness. Brian showed his natural penchant for fitness personal training early and consistently and was soon recruited to be the Assistant Manager of Wareing’s Gym. During this employment stint, Brian continued to foster his passion for mixed martial arts, human performance and the connection between nutrition and elite athleticism.
Brian’s 24/7, anytime, anywhere commitment to fitness and unwavering care for his clients led to a, now, 20-year career in fitness and personal training industry in our local, Hampton Roads. Naturally, that length of training and education comes with tremendous knowledge of a body’s capacity for human performance but not to be understated, is Brian’s first-hand experience with local boxing and martial arts gyms, bally fitness facilities, crossfit gyms, and local inlet fitness gyms. On the rare occasion when Brian cannot meet a customer’s specified fitness needs, he uses his large network of cultivated solid professional relationships within the Virginia Beach fitness scene to ensure client satisfaction. Brian acts as a referral source for these businesses and is regarded as a top personal trainer in Virginia Beach.
