Mobile Trainers cofounders Justin Townsend and Chad Smith are a pair of exciting entrepreneurs with unique backgrounds. Chad is a former NASA Mission Design Engineer, turned business owner, that transformed an old Texas steel distribution company into one of the10 fastest growing businesses in Houston, and Justin is a four-sport athlete and former collegiate swimmer that specializes in turnaround management for personal training departments at luxury gyms across the US.
Now, the two of them are teaming up to bring the fitness industry’s top personal trainers to your doorstep. In a world that values on-demand service, convenience, and a sanitary workout environment, Mobile Trainers is hiring top-tier trainers to deliver their customized, science-based, and metric-driven training programs, helping clients reach their goals safely and efficiently.
What makes Mobile Trainers different from other online personal training programs?
We recognized a real need in today’s fitness industry, which is expert in-home personal training. Many people are searching for an alternative to the gym these days, and a large portion of these individuals have a need/desire for a master personal trainer to help them get started and/or reach their goals! Mobile Trainers is taking the industry’s top personal trainers and delivering them directly to clients’ homes! We provide personal training, nutrition coaching, 3D body scanning, metabolic testing, and we bring a full suite of equipment right to your doorstep.
So, why not try an online fitness class or online workout program you can do at home? For some people, this may work. If you have a lot of experience working out and have enough discipline to do workouts on your own, you may experience good results with online training.
However, in most cases, we find that these online alternatives just don’t do the trick. Consider this: our bodies are unique and respond very differently to different workout programs and nutrition plans. As a result, we see these one-size-fits-all programs yielding one-size-fits-few results. In addition, those who do not have a lot of experience working out may have improper technique, which can result in slower progress or even injury.
Can you all come to apartments as well and not just a “home?”
Absolutely! We pride ourselves in our ability to provide goal-crushing workouts in as little as a 10X10 space, which makes most apartments perfectly suitable for our program.
Do Mobile Trainers have an app for their clients to use to help with their personal fitness goals? We do! In fact, all clients are given access to this app, where we will provide free supplemental online workouts they can do on days they’re not training with one of our trainers.

I also noticed that your clients get a 3D body scan every month? Is that in-person or in their own homes?
Our 3D body scanners are portable, which allows us to bring them to clients’ homes.
Our process typically begins with a free in-home consultation, where prospective clients will be allowed to learn more about our team and process. We will also make programming recommendations for their training, should they choose to join. Last but not least, these individuals will receive a complimentary 3D body scan!
Mobile Trainers don’t just focus on weight loss, correct? Do you also provide corrective exercise and senior fitness training?
That’s correct. We help people accomplish various fitness goals, including weight loss, toning, strength increase, muscle gain, cardiovascular health, race preparation, injury prevention, flexibility, and much more. In fact, aside from weight loss goals, we see many clients with recent or ongoing injuries. We take pride in helping people reach their goals safely.
I found it super interesting that your trainers are not driven by sales but by results. Can you tell me more about that?
Justin and I have always been concerned about using sales quotas for personal trainers at conventional gyms. All too often, the staff eventually becomes filled with the best salespeople and not the best personal trainers. Additionally, talented trainers cannot focus on their clients’ results because they have challenging sales quotas to meet! Isn’t it strange that most personal trainers aren’t required to deliver any sort of results for their clients at all? We sure think so!
That’s one of the many reasons we utilize 3D body scanners as a central part of our process. Using these scanners, we’re able to understand how your body responds to the training and nutrition program (allowing us to optimize your workouts), and we’re also able to evaluate the efficacy of our trainers! Our trainers aren’t required to make ANY sales of their own, and instead, they can place all their focus and effort on helping clients!
We believe this is how it should be.
