1. What is Personal Training?
As the name suggests, Personal Training (PT) refers to Personalized Training Programs and Health Coaching offered to individuals and/or small groups. This method of Training and Coaching is designed to meet the specific needs of each client in areas such as:
A PT Program and Schedule will be established for our clients which will accommodate their schedule and needs.
2. Who should consider Personal Training?
Anyone seriously interested in improving their physical state and/or health. It is an excellent option for those looking for a motivational, a more organized approach to their gym training, or even simply a regular tune-up to their existing training regime.
3. How often should I see a Personal Trainer?
How often one uses a PT is really quite variable depending upon one's individual needs and desires. Some choose to see their PT three times a week, others once. While still others, after solidly establishing their workout regimen, will settle into a once a month visit with their PT.
4. How do I choose a Personal Trainer?
The selection of a Personal Trainer is important. First, and foremost, it is essential that you choose a Trainer with whom you relate well to and vice versa. All the knowledge in the world will not make up for an inability by the two of you to connect. It is also important that both you and your Trainer come to an agreement on what your goals are and how to achieve them. Next, you need a Trainer who possesses both the skills and experience necessary to coach you to achieve your goals and, finally, it is always a good thing when you enjoy the whole process.
Now, back to the original question.. You choose your Trainer by learning what is important to you and then interviewing prospective candidates. If, after the interview you are still uncertain, an actual session with a PT should help you arrive at an appropriate choice.
5. Is Personal Training expensive?
Personal Training can range in cost depending upon a) The skill and experience of the Trainer, b) The quality and scope of the facility used by the Trainer, c) The location of the training site, d) The number of sessions purchased, and e) The existing demand for the PT service.
The value of the PT comes from its ability to enhance your experience in the gym. By accomplishing more in a shorter time frame, by identifying your goals, achieving them more effectively, safely, and enjoyably, and then establishing new goals, your time in the gym will be better spent.
Most individuals who use a PT feel that, as their time is a highly valuable commodity, the cost of PT is a bargain.
