If you are interested in improving your overall health by losing weight and building muscle, a personal trainer can assist you in reaching these goals. A personal trainer can customize a workout program to meet your individual needs and provide the accountability you need to stay on the right path.
What can a personal trainer do for me?
Your trainer will develop a customized workout plan based on your fitness level, goals and health needs. Trainers serve as a great source of motivation and accountability and also provide guidance to achieve your goals, the tools needed to track your progress and educational information about strength training, cardio and basic nutrition.
What should I expect during my training sessions?
Your sessions will last about one hour each. During your first session, your trainer will assess your fitness level, goals, health history and measure your body composition. These details are valuable for tracking your progress and are recorded using a variety of assessment tools. Future sessions will consist of various flexibility, strength training and cardiovascular exercises.
What should I look for in a personal trainer?
A personal trainer should be certified through an accredited personal training organization, have current certification in CPR and may have a bachelor's degree in exercise science or a related health or fitness field. If you are seeking a specialized workout program, such as triathlon training, choose a trainer with experience in that area. During training sessions, they should listen to your concerns, give their undivided attention and evaluate your progress to ensure that you're meeting your goals.
