If one of your primary goals is to lose some weight, you’ve come to the right place. In our experience, few have gotten fit by simply joining a health club. If you’re looking to make a significant change, we believe you’ll be much more successful by working with a trainer that provides thoughtful program design, accountability, support and consistency.
 
Other big reasons for hiring a trainer:

We offer personal training, through one-on-one and small group training sessions.  No matter your previous fitness experience, we are committed to helping you live a healthy life and reach your fitness, wellness or weight loss goals.
 
Our health club, unlike most over-crowded gyms, offers a clean, comfortable, intimate environment to work out.  Our highly experienced and knowledgeable personal trainers work closely with you to create safe workouts tailored to your goals and abilities.
 
The advantages to working with a personal trainer are numerous. First, by holding you accountable, you’ll find your workouts are far more consistent when you train with a personal trainer than on your own. Second, workouts designed by a personal trainer are usually more efficient and effective. Many clients don’t have the time or exercise knowledge to plan workouts. By working with a personal trainer, you’ll maximize your time at the health club. Lastly, a personal trainer can objectively assess your performance. Therefore, he or she can make adjustments to your workout that could’ve been missed.

The most popular is 2-3 times a week. Usually, you’ll work with a trainer on strength exercises and take care of cardiovascular exercises on your own. If your goal is to make a significant change, this frequency makes it more likely that you’ll achieve the results you desire.
 
Once a week training works for folks that are highly motivated to workout. If you’re a “once a week” client, you’re hiring a personal trainer so you’ll have a structured workout plan when you work out on your own. You’ll review a plan with your trainer that you’ll then incorporate into the workout you do on your own. In this case, the trainer’s role is to ensure that your workouts are strategically progressed. Although you don’t need to be motivated through every workout session, you do still get a little extra push by seeing a personal trainer once a week.
 
Once a month training works for folks that are simply looking to maintain their current fitness level. Seeing a trainer once a month helps to keep your exercise program from losing its ability to challenge you.
 
Lastly, some clients will work with a trainer 5 times a week. If you have suffered from aches or even injuries when you’ve exercised on your own, you may benefit from having the guidance of a personal trainer every time you exercise. By relying upon working with a professional to exercise safely even just for awhile, you can restore your strength and mobility to minimize injury in the future.

I was already in pretty good shape but WOW, what a difference a fitness professional can make when they really know what they’re doing. I’m now having fun and motivated to get stronger.
