How to Choose a Personal Trainer
In order for a personal trainer to design a safe and effective workout, he or she should have education and experience.  Being certified through a nationally recognized certifying agency insures that the trainer is getting continuing education.  Here are a few additional tips:

  • Find a trainer that is right for you. Some people like to exercise in the morning, some in the evening. Will the personal trainer you're talking to accomodate your schedule? What about the trainer's gender? Some people do better working with a trainer of the same sex; other prefer the opposite sex.
  • Interview more than one. Ask questions about his or her style of training and experience with any particular injuries or special problems that may need to be addressed.
  • The personal trainer you select should motivate you by positive, not negative, reinforcement.
  • Ask about group training sessions. Grab a friend and take advantage of a group training program. They offer the same expert training at a reduced and shared cost

Teen & Tween Training 

Powerlifting, competitive weightlifting and bodybuilding can be dangerous for maturing youth as is can cause injuries to growing bones, muscles and joints. Our teen/tween specific personal trainers will put together a comprehensive program to not only build muscle and endurance but also increase athletic performance through resistance training. We offer the option of group personal training as a way to allow teens to work with their friends/peers. Consult with our Director of Health and Wellness, Cody Krynock, for more information.
