7 Benefits to having a Strength Coach/Personal Trainer 

September 19, 2019

It’s educational. Sessions are much more than you just working out. You gain knowledge of what to do, how to do it, and how it benefits your health and fitness. You learn the most important things you need to concentrate on to be most successful and what things are fitness myths that are very irrelevant. Education is going to help you focus on your goals and develop a strategy to get there.

They perfect your form. Don’t think it’s that important? We correct form on nearly every exercise with every client every single day. Keeping clients safe is a huge priority for us which means we pay ridiculous attention to the very small details of every exercise. Stop asking yourself, “Is my deadlift form correct?” We are here to fix it!

They tailor workouts to you. Good coaches work around your experience, skill level, abilities, restrictions, and injuries to give you YOUR perfect program. Many people ask, “Should I exercise with injuries?” The answer is yes. Very rarely is any client perfectly capable…we know that. If you’ve had chronic injuries, pain, or recently had surgery, our coaches design a program to get you better stronger, and hopefully pain free.

They hold you accountable. You know when you tell yourself you’re going to get up early and workout before work it really turns into you hitting your alarm and falling back asleep. When you set an appointment with a coach/trainer you are way more likely to go because they are there expecting you. They will also call your ass out if you’re slacking. We all know accountability works, you just need to take the first step.

Set realistic goals. Many people want to achieve their fitness goals very quickly. If it were that easy no one would struggle to get to their goals. We help you set a solid yet realistic timeline of achieving your goals. We aren’t here to blow smoke, or inflate your ego. We are here to be honest and get you where you want to be.

Save time, be efficient. When’s the last time you went to the gym and walked around aimlessly for an hour and a half without getting much done? That doesn’t happen here. We set the pace, guide you through every step of the session, while making it super effective and efficient for you. Science tells us we don’t need to be exercising for hours on end. Short, but intense bottles of exercise will do wonders for our schedule, lives, and fitness goals.

Helps you form great habits. Having a solid coach or trainer can significantly snowball into other good habits in your life. For example, after training you will probably not want to waste that workout so you will consume a fairly healthy meal. Since you eat healthy you’ll probably sleep better, and wake up with more energy to train again. Coaches can also give you insight into things they have done to improve making exercise a habit and ease any worries you may have.

Just like anything else in your life you want to excel in, a coach is always a good idea to ensure you are on the right path to your goals.
