One-on-one personal training is the cornerstone of my fitness service.
According to dictionary.com, a personal trainer is: a person who works one-on-one with a client to plan or implement an exercise or fitness regimen.
I couldn’t agree more. While many fitness professionals have turned their attention to training groups of 4, 5, 6 or even more, I’ve maintained that my approach is all about you; the individual.
Why is that important?
Because exercises will vary in how they work a muscle(s), and from person to person. Factors including individual lever lengths, muscle sizes/lengths and tolerance to exercise (just to name a few) all combine to create unique personal experience and produce specific results. Your rate of progression is also highly individual and must be determined on a one-on-one basis. This why group exercise affects different people in different ways. Some get good results, some get hurt or experience no change at all.
The classic model, and the one I recommend for most clients, consists of 60 minute sessions. Each session includes a personalized warm-up, mobility, resistance and cardiovascular training component. Additionally, I reinforce the value of my exercise programs with regular wellness and nutrition coaching. The degree of which each is applied is dependant on the clients goals. I even offer specialized personal training for our Older Adult and weight loss clients.
For some, 60 minutes may be unnecessary, which is why I also offer a 30 minute training option. This option is best for busy clients where time is a limiting factor to getting fit. It’s also a popular option for more budget minded individuals. Programming has to be simplified in the 30 minute model (due to time constraints) but is still a viable option to be considered.
To expand my personal training options, I’ve added partner training to my list of services. This gives you even more options to suit your personal needs.
