Personal Training, Is It For You? Day 5 Motivation

How often have you wanted to have a cheerleader of your very own? I know I have. It’s incredibly satisfying to have someone in your corner, who notices all gains you make in your physical fitness regime. It’s one of the perks of having a Personal Trainer.

Hiring a professional trainer to help you in your wellness journey helps you achieve your desired results quicker, and they will be there to kick you in the proverbial rear end, when you need it most. Read on as Shelley Frost explains more, and remember to check out our Spotlight Member of the Month Mike LaCoss of GTX Cross Fit Personal Training.  You can read his testimonial about his First Float at Cloud Nine Flotation. Just scroll down any page to Member Spotlight. And be sure to read to the end for a special article.

“Motivation is often difficult to maintain when you exercise on your own. Regular sessions with a personal trainer enhance your motivation to continue with a workout regimen. Even if you don’t use a personal trainer for every session, knowing that you’ll meet with your trainer soon will motivate you during workouts. You also get the satisfaction of showing your trainer the improvement you’ve made as your exercise program proceeds.”

Personal Training, Is it For You? Day 4 Instruction

Ever walk into a gym, and even though a sales person walked you through the machines, you look at them, scratch your head and think in your best Tim Taylor impression, “huhhh?” I know I have. Working out and taking good care of your body is a marathon, not a sprint, and no one would expect you to remember how to use every machine in the gym. So what to do? Some will ask other gym members, who may or may not know what they are talking about. Some will WATCH other gym members who may or may not be using the machinery correctly. Improper use of gym equipment can not only cause injury, but if used incorrectly just won’t do a thing for you, or worse, do the opposite of what your desired results are.

Hiring a professional trainer to help you in your wellness journey helps you achieve your desired results quicker, and they will instruct you the proper way to use all that equipment.

“A professional trainer teaches you the proper way to perform each exercise movement in your routine. She often demonstrates the movement and watches you perform it so she can correct any issues with your posture or technique. Learning how to perform exercises properly reduces your risk of injury. You also will be able to do the exercises on your own at home or at the gym after getting professional fitness instruction.”

Personal Training, Is it For You? Day 3 Personalized Workout

Welcome to Day 3 of our Blog on Personal Training, is it for you? Have you ever thought about hiring a Personal Trainer, but just didn’t know if it was worth the money? Personal Trainers come in all sizes and expertise. If you are going to hire one, make sure they are certified, and have your best interests at heart. I hired personal trainers at a local gym (actually a national franchise) and it was both the best and worst of experience. One was fabulous, had my back, got me to push beyond my mind limits and I achieved a tremendous amount including losing over 200 pounds! Another, made me feel like an inconvenience to his personal time. Always checking his phone, flirting with people as they walked up. Wouldn’t even help me count my reps. It’s SO VITALLY important that you find the right personal trainer. Mike LaCoss, one of the Cloud Nine Flotation members owns GTX Crossfit Personal Fitness on Tanque Verde. He hires only the best, and I’ve been in that gym. Everyone is dedicated. You couldn’t go wrong. But you need to resonate with where you choose to work out. You can find Mike on Facebook at Great Times Crossfit. Check it out and see if it’s right for you. Ask questions. Interview the trainers. And now back to Day 3 of Personal Training, Is it For You by Shelley Frost.

“Personal trainers create a specific workout plan just for you based on what you want to achieve. The personalized plan typically gives you better results than a general workout plan. Because he knows your physical condition and medical background, he is able to make accommodations to the program to fit your needs.”

Personal Training, Is it for You? Day 2 GOAL ACHIEVEMENT!

Welcome to Day Two of Personal Training, Is it for You? Goal ACHIEVEMENT!

“A personal trainer helps you define your fitness goals. She takes into account your current fitness level and discusses what you want to achieve through your workouts. While you may have some idea of the goals you want to set, a professional is able to help you break them down into smaller goals that are specific and realistic. The personal trainer also helps assess your progress toward those goals.”

“The image of a personal trainer yelling and pushing his clients until near collapse may scare some people away from hiring a trainer, but the benefits of using a personal trainer should be considered carefully. While some in the field provide “tough love” motivation, personal trainers typically work with clients in a non-threatening way, helping them to achieve specific fitness goals. Understanding the potential benefits of a personal trainer can help you decide if the financial investment is worthwhile.”
