Whether your goal is to lose weight, build muscle, improve your cardiovascular fitness, or a combination of all three, it can sometimes be hard to motivate yourself to push through obstacles to your fitness goals. That’s where our personal trainers come in. We believe that measurable progress can be made with proper guidance and a good foundation.
Benefits of Personal Trainers
A personal trainer is your partner on the road to increased fitness. With the hectic pace of our lives today, you can’t afford to spend hours at the gym without results. A personal trainer will educate you on proper form, balance, safety and nutrition. You will gain valuable knowledge on a workout regime that is in line with your body type and fitness goals. Trainers hold you accountable to your fitness goals through real, measured progress and a standing appointment at the gym. On days when you feel like you just can’t, your trainer is there to remind you that you CAN! A qualified trainer can ensure your workout doesn’t aggravate any nagging injuries, and can help prevent any new ones by making sure you know the right way to train.
It’s Not One-Size-Fits-All
While it’s true we all have the same physiology and there is no such thing as “women’s workouts” and “men’s workouts,” women often have very different health and fitness goals than their male counterparts. Typically, women have different “problem areas” and concerns, not to mention different lifestyle considerations. A program designed for a man hoping to build muscle mass will not fit the needs of a woman hoping to lose pounds and shed inches. Women are not just smaller men! Working with a trainer who understands the differences in training women and men is the key to achieving your fitness goals.
Pushing the Boundaries
Having different training goals than men doesn’t mean that women can’t train hard! Once schooled in proper technique and proper rest between sets, women are often amazed at how quickly they become stronger, faster and lighter. Just when you think you can’t do any more, your trainer will work with you to push yourself that little bit harder. And then at your next session, your trainer will push you a little bit more.
