Congratulations, you’re thinking of joining a gym! It’s the first step toward improved health and a longer, happier life. At Eagle Fit, the gym in Okemos that’s open 24/7 for your convenience, we offer more than just brand-new, top-of-the line equipment — we offer personal training to our clients as well. We want you to be the absolute best version of you, and we want to help you get there.
What Is a Personal Trainer?
When you hire a personal trainer, you want to be sure they know what they’re doing. Today, there are several legitimate, respected organizations that certify personal trainers. These include:
· NASM — The National Academy of Sports Medicine
· NCSF — The National Council on Strength & Fitness
· ISSA — The International Sports Sciences Association
· ACE — The American Council on Exercise
· ACSM — The American College of Sports Medicine
Additionally, several personal trainers have their degrees in exercise science, in which they become experts in the science of bodybuilding, sports performance, sports nutrition and personal training.
Any personal trainer you work with should hold at least one of these certifications or degree. Certified personal trainers can help you reach your goals faster.
Why Do I Need a Personal Trainer?
At our Okemos 24/7 gym, we welcome everyone, from hard-core gym rats to newbies who have never set foot in a gym before.
If you’re a beginner who is unfamiliar with weight machines, you may not be using the correct form, and this could prevent you from getting everything you can out of your time in the gym. Our personal trainers can go over with you in detail how to use each piece of equipment.
If you’re a gym enthusiast who has been working out for years, you know how frustrating it is when you hit a plateau. You keep working out, but nothing changes. Or your body doesn’t look the way you would have hoped from the effort you’re putting in. A few sessions with a personal trainer can get you over the hump and back on the right path.
How Often Should I Use a Personal Trainer?
The answer to this question depends on your goals. Some people want personal training on a regular basis because they find it helps with motivation. Others use a personal trainer to help them get ready for a competition or another event.
If it’s your first time with a personal trainer, they will help set up a program for you to follow for a set period of time. You may choose to work this program on your own, then return to your personal trainer for a new program. These sessions are helpful because you can also use this time to ask questions about your individual regimen and for advice to help achieve your goals.
