Is personal training for me?
If you have a fitness related goal then yes, personal training is probably for you! We are looking forward to working with individuals who want to improve their lives through exercise and healthy living. Whether your goal is to lose weight, live healthier, get in better shape, prepare for an event, athletic performance, learn how to exercise more consistently, build strength, or any other reason, we want to work with you to help you reach your goals. If you are unsure, or have questions about whether personal training is for you please contact us.
How it works
First appointment: The first appointment is a chance for the trainer to get to know you and for you to get to know the trainer. We will discuss your goals and what you hope to achieve with training, any health concerns that may exist and how we can keep you safe, past fitness experiences, types of exercise you like and dislike, and anything else that may be relevant to help you find success while training with us. This is also a great time for you to ask any questions you have, or raise any concerns. The first session will end with a series of fitness assessments so that we can have baseline measurements to track your progress over the course of training.
Training Sessions: Training sessions will be designed with you in mind! Each training session will be created to help you achieve your goals. Flexibility, balance, speed agility and quickness, cardio, core, plyometrics, and resistance training will all be elements included in most training sessions with specific exercises chosen with care to meet your ability level. It is important to us that you feel successful so we take care to choose exercises that are both challenging and achievable. We will never expect you do an exercise that is unsafe or feels unachievable to you.
Reassessments & Check-ins: Every 4-6 weeks we will do a reassessment of the fitness assessments we did on the first appointment, and check-in to make sure we are still on track for reaching your goals. Reassessments are an important part of the process because it allows for us to track progress and make changes if needed. Reassessments are a chance for us to celebrate the successes and make changes to the program.
