One thing about the fitness industry is that history repeats itself. Fitness trends come and go and then come back again often with a newly created “cool” name. Some of these trends are fantastic and fun, some may not be so safe but create that “superhero” feeling and of course good old Group Fitness classes ( we use to call them aerobics classes) are still going strong!
One trend that has come back stronger than ever is Personal Training. This is one trend that I personally am totally supportive of! Personal training may not be for everyone but it might be just right for you if:
-You want to get fit but don’t know where to start! -You just can’t seem to get to the next level whether it be bring your strength up, putting on extra muscle, or losing that last bit of extra weight! -You are finding yourself in a fitness rut and need something fresh to get you excited about fitness again!
It is really important to make sure that whoever you choose to train you has the right credentials. Anyone can call themselves a personal trainer but do they have the education and experience to back it up.
When members, or friends, or acquaintances ask me about choosing a trainer, first and foremost, I make sure they are certified. Secondly it is really important to make sure you click with this person. If you don’t find that your personalities match, you may not be motivated.
Your trainer should offer a free sit down consultation and chat to make sure you are on the same page. A great bond is easily and quickly created with the right combination of the client/trainer relationship and that is where the successful results come quickly!
