What is a Certified Personal Trainer?

By definition, a Personal Trainer is a fitness professional who uses the body’s response to exercise to improve clients’ overall physical health. Certified personal trainers are fitness professionals who are well rounded and well versed in correct biomechanics and exercise implementation.

My Top Ten list of why a
"Personal Trainer" may be right For you!

(1) Motivation
One of the main reasons people benefit from a personal trainer is that
they lose motivation to stick with a consistent exercise program.
Certified personal trainers can provide structure and accountability,
and help you develop a lifestyle that encourages health.

(2) Individualized Program
If you have any chronic health conditions, injuries or training goals
(running a marathon, for example) a trainer will work with you and
your health care provider to plan a safe, efficient program that
considers these needs and enable you to reach your health goals.

(3) Efficiency
Personal Trainers help you focus on results and stop wasting your
time doing inefficient workouts. A personal trainer has a plan and will
help you get maximum results in minimum time.

(4) Improve Technical Skills
If you play a particular sport, the right personal trainer will help you
improve your skill by showing you new training techniques specific to
your sport. The Trainer will incorporate skills training into your program
so you improve not only your strength and endurance, but your agility
and mental focus as well.

(5) You are New to Exercise
If you are an absolute beginner, a personal trainer is the ultimate
fitness coach. A good trainer will introduce you to a very simple,
effective routine and build efficiently so before you know it, you
have the confidence and knowledge to decide what is right for you.

(6) Break Through Plateaus
Ok, you are already in pretty decent shape, but you've been there for
years. If you are stuck in the same routine and want to break out of a
rut, a personal trainer is the perfect solution. A trainer will jump
start, not only your motivation, but your routine as well.

(7) Learn how to go it Alone
If you ultimately want to learn all the facets of designing your own
routines so you don't need to use a personal trainer, going for a few
months may be all you need. All good personal trainers will teach
you the basics of building and modifying a fitness program to achieve
maximum results.

(8) Workout Safely
A personal trainer watches your form, monitors your vitals and can
provide objective feedback about your limits and strengths. Most of
us tend to ignore some of the subtle signals our body provides. We
either push through pain or give up too soon. Because a personal
trainer can watch what you are doing while you are doing it, they
can help push you or slow you down as necessary.

(9) Workout at Home
Many personal trainers, like myself, make house calls. If you
don't have the time or interest in going to a gym, but have a hard
time knowing what to do on your own at home, a personal trainer
can bring fitness into your living room.

(10) Lose Weight
There is a good reason that the number one reason people hire
personal trainers is to lose weight and get into shape -- it works.
If you made a resolution to lose the fat and build the muscle,
a trainer can keep you on track and help you realize that goal.
