It takes more than state-of-the-art equipment to reach your fitness goals. You have to exercise regularly and make each session count. A trainer will give motivational advice help you develop the incentive to stick to your exercise plan and help you address factors that contribute to successful behaviour change.
A trainer’s expertise enables him/her to customise an exercise program, making it specific to your goals. One size does not fit all! Plus, your trainer will teach you correct form, and provide information on training principals that will maximise efficiency and effectiveness, and minimise the chance of injury. Finally, as your fitness improves, your trainer will fine-tune your program to meet your changing needs and make sure you continue to get results.
Don’t have time to exercise? You and your trainer can figure out a schedule that will work for you. Together, you can brainstorm ways to overcome the other obstacles that stand between you and your goals.
Please contact the trainer you want for an appointment.
What is a Personal Trainer?
A personal trainer is someone who has the expertise, experience and educational background to design an individualized exercise program to assist clients in achieving their individually selected fitness goals.
They do this by teaching you how to perform exercise correctly, designing and varying your program for you, and over time, by training you how to think about the components and principles of exercise, so that when you are comfortable, you can train yourself. Once your trainer has found out what your health concerns, fitness goals and schedule are, he or she can tailor a program to help you achieve the results you want. With a trainer’s guidance, you can maximize your results in a minimal amount of time.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The amount of sessions you need is usually up to you. Some people already have a fairly successful exercise program, and simply want to learn more advanced exercises to complement their program and to add more variety. In these cases one or two sessions might be enough. Other people want more in depth help that includes extensive assistance with exercise program design. Such help might take four or five sessions. You may just want a trainer once weekly, fortnightly or monthly to motivate, educate and inspire you and you continue with your training yourself in between.
Is Personal Training For You?
Are you achieving the results you want from your exercise program?
Do you have trouble showing up two or three times a week to exercise?
Do you sometimes feel you are just “going through the motions” while exercising?
Have your reached a plateau in your progress?
Is it difficult to motivate yourself to try harder each time you exercise?
Do you feel you need more guidance to get the most from your exercise program?
Are you unsure how to use all the equipment at the gym – or which equipment is best for your needs?
If you answered yes to a few of these questions, and are serious about changing your body and improving your health, you may need a personal trainer! You can get the individual attention you need for motivation, guidance and custom results you want.
Personal training is not just for movie stars or wealthy people. Rather, it is an innovative, affordable route to a results-oriented exercise program for you. Today, personal trainers are used by people of all fitness, age and economic levels – to help make those lifestyle changes those people couldn’t achieve by themselves.
What’s a Training Session Like?
At the beginning of your first private exercise session and consultation, your trainer will discuss your fitness goals,
• Body fat reduction and weight loss
• Cardiovascular conditioning
• Body shaping and toning
• General muscular conditioning
• Cross training (strength and endurance)
• Low back strengthening
• Sport specific training
• Rehabilitation from injury
• Pre/postnatal training
Your goals will be as individual as you are. By taking into account what you want to achieve, your trainer can design a program that is just right for you. Together you will set long and short-term goals.
Your first session will probably include questions and assessment tests to give your trainer an idea of your “starting point”. Once you know where you’re starting from and where you want to go, you can chart your route and
measure your progress along the way.
Who Needs It?
If you feel you are not reaching your specific fitness goals, not putting the maximum effort into your training sessions – or getting the maximum results from them – a personal trainer is just what you need to achieve your next level of fitness. Many people find that just a few sessions with a trainer helps them refine and recommit to their exercise programs.
Personal trainers are not magic, while they can provide guidance and great recommendations, you are still responsible for the exercise. You must work with the trainer to be sure the exercise recommendations match the time and effort you are willing to spend on an exercise program. Be ambitious, but be realistic. Better to do a little bit and continue for the years to come than to do a great deal for a few weeks and then quit entirely. Remember that spending money on a personal trainer does not get you in shape; exercise does!
