Trainer By Experience

We have personal trainers ranging from beginners to highly experienced ones. The below matrix will help you to decide the level of trainer's experience that best matches your fitness goal.

Beginner trainer for Basic Goals

When you want to get fit, improve cardiovascular function, lose some weight or feel healthy, you may not need to spend a lot on personal training sessions. You would need a trainer who can guide you with basic body weight and functional training to get you moving towards your health goals. These are trainers with 1 to 5 years of experience.

Intermediate level trainer for Average Goals

When you want to lose a decent amount of weight or build muscles, you may need to spend a little more than what you would spend on basic goals. Getting that V-shape or getting the right curves is what an intermediate level personal trainer can help you with. They will have 5 to 9 years of experience.

Elite personal trainer for Advanced Goals

This is for someone who is looking for extreme transformation in terms of health as well as stage ready physical appearance. The trainer will usually have more than 10 years of experience in the fitness industry.

10 Benefits Of Personal Training

Individual Attention - Fitness level of every individual is different, with unique fitness goals, eating habits etc. A trainer can create a plan which is specific to your needs, a program that is suitable for you to incorporate to your lifestyle for long-term.

Motivation - When you need motivation and encouragement having a trainer by your side can push you on your workout routine and share the journey with you.

Clarity - Fitness can be confusing. There is a lot of information to sort through. Eat this, not that. Cardio before or after strength training? Your trainer can help you find credible information and provide direction on your fitness journey. A trainer can help remove the guesswork so you can put all your energy toward accomplishing your goals.

Personal trainer helps client

Confidence - Do you find gym intimidating? Gain confidence by working with a personal trainer on how to perform exercises, use machines and navigate the facility. Even better, an ego boost during exercise can promote stronger self-confidence and self-efficacy, which can help you stick with your exercise program over the long term.

Consistency - Sometimes it feels hard to stick to the program. A trainer can hold you accountable and help you overcome all the excuses you might use to avoid your commitment to exercise. It's a lot harder to skip the gym when you know someone is waiting for you.

Avoid Injury - If you are inexperienced, you may not know the right form of exercise which cause injuries. It is worth hiring a trainer to learn the proper techniques to exercise. This will improve your results and prevent annoying injuries.

Personal training diet

Sport-specific Training - Do you want to run your first 5K or prepare for a backpacking trip? Looking to shave some strokes off your golf game? Your trainer can design a fitness program specific to your sport, which will improve your performance and reduce your chance of injury during the event(s).

Training With Medical Conditions - Exercise is beneficial for preventing or managing many common chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. However, exercising with a medical condition requires additional precautions. A knowledgeable trainer with experience training clients with chronic conditions can design a program that ensures your safety and provides a positive exercise experience.

Aging Gracefully - Our bodies change as we age. Perhaps the exercises you used to do no longer work with your body, or maybe you’ve stopped seeing results. A trainer can help you adjust or adapt your program as you age, which will allow you to maintain functionality and strength.

Fun - Believe it or not, exercise can be enjoyable. A savvy personal trainer can make exercise both effective and fun. Group or buddy training can be a great way to increase enjoyment, make exercise social and attain the services of a trainer for a cheaper rate. And simply working with a trainer who you like and respect can be enough to provide you with more gratification from your workouts.
