Personal Training is a service providing effective exercises plans catered to the individual’s needs. With knowledge in exercise science, nutrition, health screening and fitness assessment, Personal Trainers are trained to help you do more than simply work out; they provide instruction, motivation and guidance. It is also a great treatment to help rehabilitation from injury and certain diseases.

Personal Trainers design specific, step-by-step programs for their clients that are intended to work into fitness gradually, without injury. Athletes use Personal Trainers to assist them with sport specific programs, as do advanced exercise participants who want to continue making gains beyond their training plateau. In each program, upper-body and lower-body strength training and stretching exercises are used as well as aerobic and core stability exercises. The client is taught the correct way to perform exercises and how to use various kinds of exercise equipment.

Regular physical exercise, complimented by the support and assistance of a Personal Trainer has many benefits, such as:
 
  • Improved physical appearance
  • Lower or increase body weight
  • Decreased risk of diseases
  • Lower body fat
  • More positive self-esteem
  • Better sleeping patterns
  • More energy and stamina

Measurements may be taken regularly to chart individual progress including weight, percentage of body fat and other body measurements, cardiovascular improvements and levels of muscle strength, flexibility and endurance.
