Congradulations, you hired a personal trainer. You meet on day one. The trainer asks you a few questions, then BAM….right into a grunting, heart racing, muscle burning workout. You are sore for five days after your first workout, and you can hardly walk down the stairs. A few weeks later, you notice joint pain, from your back to your knees. The trainer DOES NOT explain WHY you are doing any of the exercises, except for “it will get your heart rate up.” If you have experienced this, I would highly re-think your trainer’s level of experience or care for YOUR body.
Did your personal trainer complete an assessment of the way your body moves while doing simple tasks? Bending, Stepping, pushing, reaching, squating, etc.
If the answer is NO, you are in trouble. Your personal trainer should always evaluate you BEFORE you start the first workout. If not, you are setting yourself up for injury.
How does your trainer know what exercises and workload is best for YOUR body? This is what makes the PERSONAL in personal training! Would you take your car on the road without knowing the tire pressure, fluid levels, or monitoring the tread on the tires? Personal trainers should take the same care with YOUR body before the real exercise program begins
The Tone Up Club fitness coaching is very unique because the client’s body is screened and assessed BEFORE any exercise routines are performed. We take pride in knowing the current ”status” of the client. This is accomplished by determining their strengths and weaknesses. A strength may be great shoulder mobility, but a weakness may be lack of glute strength. These strengths and weaknesses ultimately determine how a client will move to perform each exercise. Therefore, we develop exercise progressions that maximize results and minimize injury. Clients enjoy their exercise sessions with The Tone Up Club because the intensity and selection of exercises is within their capability, with room for progress.
