5 Reasons to Work With a Personal Trainer

Our personal training programs are for the individual who wants guaranteed results and wishes to eliminate the guess work. We use a 5 component, scientific based, progressive training method to assist our clients in taking their fitness to the next level.

1) Nutrition

Nutrition is the first component for a reason. A proper meal plan is the most important factor in achieving results in the gym, and can account for up to 70% of one’s success. We utilize DietMaster Pro, a registered dietitian program to design our individualized, detailed meal plans. Each plan reflects the proper amount of calories, the correct ratio of proteins/carbs/fats, and the exact timing of each meal. We also provide an exchange system that allows you to choose from a variety of foods while still adhering to the program.

2) Cardio

Cardiovascular exercise is important for overall health and weight management. We will design a cardio program for you that is most conducive to your goal. We use the F.I.T.T (Frequency, Intensity, Time, and Type) variables to initiate the cardio regimen and we can manipulate these variables along the way over time so that the program is progressive and we can also avoid overtraining and work out plateaus.

3) Resistance Training

Weight training is essential to build lean body mass and to burn body fat. Different individuals have different goals and their resistance training routine needs to reflect this. We will design a weight training routine that will get you to your goals quickly and safely.

4) Supplementation

Proper supplementation is a key element in a complete health and fitness program. In order for the body to achieve maximal results, it must be well nourished. This will create the ideal environment inside the body for change. The supplement regimen must be a complimentary component to the nutrition and exercise plans. We will make a supplement recommendation for you that will fill the gaps in your nutrition and will help you to achieve faster results.

5) Professional Assistance

This is the job of the fitness professional to design a program around the individual that will get them to their goals quickly and safely. Our goal as trainers is to not only take a person from point A to point B, but to educate them as well. We want to turn our clients into their own personal trainers so that they can maintain a life time of fitness on their own.
