Personal Trainer Overview
My training programs are customized for you. Many trainers create generic workouts for their clients. This does work most times but it doesn't work optimally for you. Whether you realize it or not, I am evaluating your needs during every workout so that I can make customized changes to your program.
I don't have one philosophy or one way of motivating clients. Everyone is different and in most situations, there is more than one way to get results. Because of this, I work with clients and encourage feedback to make sure that they are enjoying the workout to the fullest. The more clients enjoy working out and can take ownership in it, the better the results. I am a firm believer in everyone lifting weights, whether your goal is to compete in powerlifting or just to lose weight and tone up. Yes, I am a powerlifter. I do expose all of my clients to the 3 powerlifts (squat, bench press and deadlift) but I will not force you to become a powerlifter. The flip side is that powerlifting is a great way to lose weight and get in shape while allowing you to compete against yourself and others if you wish. It is a great tool for motivating and challenging yourself. Powerlifting is not to be confused with bodybuilding. Women, you will not turn into men. Men, you will not turn into the Hulk. Aside from the lifting weights part, depending on your goals, I believe in an all around exercise program. This includes strength training, flexibility, cardiovascular training as well as mental training techniques. Part or all of this will be included in your training for optimum results and fitness.
