The Benefits of Personal Training

What can you get out of professional fitness training?

Our fitness trainers are personally invested to help you succeed. You don’t have to arrive at the gym and try to brainstorm what you’re going to do next and wonder if it will really help you achieve your goals. You have a professional at your side at all times guiding you, explaining the correct way to use the exercise equipment, monitoring your effectiveness, and making sure you’re safe on the floor.

Everything they do is for your own benefit. They hold you accountable to your workouts, challenge you to grow, and cheer your milestones, whether that be for health, fitness, and/or weight loss.

For Health

Your fitness trainer customizes a workout routine for you that will keep you safe as you exercise while simultaneously challenging you so you’ll be able to see results. You won’t wake up the next morning with an aching back! Your personal trainer is right there on the floor with you, liable for your safety.

For Fitness

Your trainer holds you accountable to your workout, but they are also accountable to you to ensure you experience the results you want. During your regularly-scheduled workout sessions (multiple times a week, weekly, biweekly, monthly, etc), you learn how to reinvent your lifestyle and stay consistent, dedicated, and motivated. Afterward, you will be more comfortable in the gym.

 

For Weight Loss

personal trainer for weight lossWeight loss can be a hard and overwhelming journey. Similar to fitness training, it requires a lifestyle change that affects your day-to-day routine. It isn’t going to happen overnight. Your trainer helps you set realistic expectations. They are your life coach, helping you stay healthy both in and out of the gym. They’ll determine what happened to get you to where you are now and what you need to do to get to where you want to be. You will not only lose weight but gain muscle as well. A personal trainer helps you feel confident in the gym and sets you on the path to success.

Personal Training: What to Expect

It starts with a fitness consultation

Are you interested in personal training but you’re not sure what to expect? Not a problem – we’ll take you through our process so you know the big picture before you even step foot in the gym!

We offer fitness “packages” based on the needs of each individual. The package is personalized so that each member can maximize the results for their goals. The process of partnering with one of our fitness trainers begins with a 60-minute fitness consultation.

What is the Fitness Consultation Like?

personal trainer Developed by Dr. James Manson at the Cleveland Clinic, our fitness consultation is more of a health-related data and screening process than a performance test. Don’t worry – we won’t ask to see how many push-ups you can do! We’re the only gym in the Penfield area that offers the Cleveland Clinic fitness program.

We have several goals with the preliminary consultation.

1.Discuss Medical History

First, we have a sit-down conversation about your medical history and safety precautions throughout the gym. This medical screening helps us ensure that your fitness goals coincide with doctor’s recommendations and that everything you do in the gym is medically safe. Your personal trainer is liable for your safety!

2. Assess Your Fitness Level

For the pre-exercise screening, we check your blood pressure, pulse, and your heart rate to give us an understanding of your current health status. This helps us ensure you’re perfectly safe to get out on the floor and try some machines.

3. Discuss Goal Setting

We then discuss your fitness goals; why are you interested in personal training? Do you want to lose weight? Improve your health? Increase muscle mass? Get toned? Prepare for an upcoming special event? Recover from an injury? Your goals set the standard for your personalized fitness package.

4. Determine Your Body Composition

We record your body composition to assess your current fitness level. Body composition is the percentage of body fat vs. muscle mass. It’s determined by taking your total percentage of fat (including both fats that’s essential to live as well as storage fat), divided by your total percentage of body mass (which includes bones, muscle, organs, etc), and multiplied by 100.

5. Take Your Measurements

We record your measurements so over time, you can see how many inches you’ve lost or how many inches of muscle you’ve gained, depending on what your goals are. Seeing the results of your fitness training is highly motivating to continue the journey to a better, healthier lifestyle!

6. Test Your Flexibility & Strength Limitations

Your consultant takes you out on the floor for some basic flexibility and strength limitation testing on the machines, as well as a balance test. Functional movement training is not merely athletic-based but based on your own body’s biomechanics. The test may include a deep squat, hurdle step, in-line lunge, shoulder mobility, active straight leg raise, trunk stability push-up, and rotary stability.

7. Help You Acclimate!

If you’re a new member, we’ll help you become orientated with the gym and experience all the amenities that are available. We’ll also recommend that you take advantage of certain classes at the club that will reinforce your sessions with your personal trainer. We always have helpful classes going on that will further your workout benefits!

In the same way we customize a personal training package to the individual, the fitness consultation is also customized. Seniors or those recovering from an injury have their own fitness test. The results of the consultation depend on why you’re at the gym, so they’ll vary for everybody.

Your First Fitness Training Session

 

personal trainer Your assigned trainer spends some time reviewing the results from your consultation and developing a fitness plan for you that targets your overall goals.

Once you’ve completed the consultation, your first training session is free! By the end of this 60-minute free session, you know your way around the gym and can use the machines confidently.

We take pride in a diverse group of trainers who can provide all sorts of fitness packages that cater to what our clients want to get out of it.

Fitness is a healthier lifestyle. You don’t have to be the best or the most competitive. The goal is to increase your quality of life.
