      Personal TrainingWhy not try a new exercise and work with someone who can work alongside you? A personal trainer can help you meet your goals and can create you a customized workout. Click here to Meet Our Trainers!
      1. Personal Trainers Can Teach You New Things. Ever wonder what that huge mega rack in our fitness center is for? Are you shying away from the barbell squat machine because you don’t know how to use it? Personal trainers are great at introducing new exercises to clients and the bonus – they will be sure you learn the proper form, thereby reducing your risk of injury.
      1. Personal Trainers Are an Objective Eye. You may not know that your abductors are weak or that your hip flexors are tight. A trainer will help identify these muscle imbalances and give you the tools to correct them.
      1. Personal Trainers Push Your Limits. A trainer can help you safely turn your “I cant’s” into “I did!”
      1. Personal Trainers Can Hold You Accountable. You paid for the session, so you are more likely to show up. Studies show that accountability is the #1 reason people stay with a personal trainer. And yes, they are going to ask you questions like: “What did you eat today?” and “Did you get your cardio in this week?”
      1. Personal Trainers Can Help You Bust Through a Plateau. This is where all the science, and certifications pay off.  A trainer always has a new workout up their sleeve to help boost your metabolism (and mood!).
      1. Personal Trainers Love to See You Sweat. Only a trainer will call you “awesome” when you are at your disheveled worse, huffing and puffing from the move you just completed.
      1. Personal Trainers Are Affordable “ME” Time. This is one hour for just YOU, with a professional who has designed a regimen for just you. In a world of multi-tasking and crowds, where else can you get someone’s undivided attention for the betterment of YOU for around $50?
      1. Personal Trainers Can Help You with a Starting Point. Maybe you used to workout, but now the machines are different and everyone else seems to be confident in their workout except you. A trainer will help you start on your journey back to the gym.
      1. Personal Trainers Can Freshen Up Your Workout Routine. So, you feel comfortable in the gym and know how to do a proper squat, but you are bored with the same old routine. A trainer will shake up your workout regimen with new exercises designed with your goals in mind.
      1. Personal Trainers Can Help You Increase Your Limitations. Trainers are not physical therapists, but they will work to help you regain the muscle tone you lost through injury or illness.

      So, what are you waiting for? Come work with a personal trainer to take your workout to the next level!
