What to expect when hiring a personal trainer.

NYC Adventure Boot Camp understands that after choosing to improve your health through better eating and exercise, many people don’t know what to do next. There are hundreds of pages on the internet dedicated to diets, exercise regimes and equipment, but how can you tell what is right for you and your body? This is why choosing to join NYC Adventure Boot Camp is a wonderful way to take your next step on the road to better health. In this article, we’ll take a look at just a few of things you can expect to find when you hire a personal trainer.

Here at Gemini Fitness we are big on the three C’s- COMMITMENT, CONTROL & CONSISTENCY! Make the first step and Commit and we will gladly guide you through the rest. Whatever your health and fitness concerns are, we are confident that we can help you achieve your goals! If you are interested in speaking with a personal trainer, please sign up for a free consultation. We can discuss your goals and see if we are a good match. What are you waiting for?

Great Communication

A great personal trainer will be ready and able to hear what you’re saying, from the moment you meet to the day you reach your first goal. During the time of your meeting, the personal trainer has set that time aside to concentrate on you and your needs. He’s listening to your concerns, what kinds of exercise you like, what you’d prefer to avoid, and what your goals are. At the same time, they are there to help you understand how the exercises you’re doing will help you attain your goal and to explain them safely and efficiently.

One to One Assessment

When you’re working with a personal trainer, the fitness routine they design are for you and no one else, not a class full of fitness students, not other people in your age group, and certainly not the anonymous masses on the internet. Your personal trainer should do a full assessment of your strengths and weaknesses on your very first meeting, and will be able to help you create realistic goals. You certainly have your role to play here as well, as you’ll have to be honest about your eating and exercise habits so he’ll be able to better help you on the road to better health.

Dedicated Time for Fitness

When you create a schedule for meeting up with your personal trainer, you can count on that time to be dedicated to improving your health, so it’s easier to let some of your outside concerns at the door. In our busy lives, it’s hard enough to find time for exercise and even then we can be burdened down by worries about work and home. Once you’ve dedicated the time to meet with your personal trainer, it’s easier to concentrate on the task in front of you, and you’ll be surprised to find that you’ll likely be less stressed when you leave.

Health Concerns

One of the benefits of letting a personal trainer design your fitness routine is that he can work around any kind of health concerns that you have. Certainly, exercises will differ in intensity for young people and older people, but this is also true for those that are recovering from heart problems, or are suffering from diabetes, or want to improve their health before or after a pregnancy. Your personal trainer at NYC Adventure Boot Camp will be able to take into account any health concerns you may have and incorporate them into your fitness routine.
