The Benefits of Personal Training


At some point 70% of all Americans begin some sort of exercise program. However, in less than 3 months 80% of those individuals will quit. Interestingly, 85% of all individuals who have a personal trainer will maintain their gym schedule.


We all need a little help with exercise sometimes, whether we’re just starting out or we’ve been at it for a long time. There are a number of reasons people work with personal trainers.  Some want an individualized program so they can lose weight or get in shape while others simply need to be held accountable for their workouts.  Wherever you are in your exercise journey, the personal trainers at FAC may be just what you need to take it to the next level.


The benefits of working with a Personal Trainer:


Accountability & Motivation

Trainers are experts at holding you accountable. They help you to not only develop your own personalized goals but to also develop a realistic and achievable plan to attain these goals. Trainers will believe in you even when you are feeling at your lowest and will motivate you to push through.


Develop An Effective Routine

Trainers are educated on the most effective ways to help you get to your fitness goals. They will work with you to develop a routine that makes since and is realistic for you. A trainer will help you to figure out what makes since with your lifestyle, and will maximize your time in the gym without overwhelming you. They’ll work with you to develop an exercise routine that focuses on achieving your personal goals.


New perspective on Fitness

There is an overwhelming amount of fitness, nutrition, and health information available. It is the job of the trainer to stay on top of health trends and continue their education in order to provide you with the safest and most accurate information in the industry. Trainers are able to use their education, knowledge and experience to provide you with tips and tricks to help you develop a healthier lifestyle.


Proper technique & Form

It is very easy to hurt yourself in the gym. Trainers pay attention, cue both your mind and your body and help you achieve your goals more quickly by making sure you are doing each exercise correctly. They can help you develop better running form, improve your posture, and increase your strength by teaching you to recruit the proper muscles and making a mind body connection.


Injury Prevention & Injury Rehabilitation

People will often avoid going to the gym if they suffered an
injury in the past or fear an injury occurring because they are unfamiliar with best practices. Trainers will teach you how to use equipment properly so that you do not injure yourself. Trainers will also work with you to prevent injuries in everyday life by helping you increase your balance, flexibility, and core strength. They are able to focus on specific exercises that will benefit you based on your activities of daily living.


Maximize Workout & Minimize Time:

Trainers will develop programs that are efficient and allow you to get the most in, in the shortest amount of time. Time does not need to be lost at the gym. If you are finding it hard to find time to workout, not only will a trainer help you to get the most out of your work out, but they will also teach you how you can do that on your own.
