Outcomes & Expectations
Why hire a trainer? And what makes one better than another?
People come to personal trainers for several common but altogether different reasons. A big one is simply to “get in shape” and lose excessive fat. People may also want to “tone up” or get jacked/buff/big etc. While I’m capable of leading you to any of these goals I offer more than a personal trainer does. I’m a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). I am different from a standard personal trainer because a CSCS requires a Bachelor’s degree. Mine consists of Exercise Science, Biology, and a good chunk of Nutrition. That’s not to say that many of the practicing personal trainers out there don’t offer practical working knowledge, but I’ve been through countless labs and lectures which established a solid understanding as to why things happen the way they do with your body—I am required to continue earning credits to keep my certification current so I therefore continue read up on exercise topics to enhance my knowledge base.
When selecting a trainer, it could very well be confusing and something to be a bit apprehensive about. The thought of all that could go wrong may very well discourage you altogether. What if the trainer’s weird? Or too pushy? What if he or she makes you feel uncomfortable, just because they are dealing with you on a personal level, with a subject you’re already self-conscious about?
The list can go on forever, but basically with me you’ll find a guy who looks at who you are on the inside, while knowing exactly how to help you improve on the outside.
Here’s what I offer: motivation, knowledge, experience, encouragement, and help.
