Do you want to be happy, healthy, and functionally fit well into your coming years? Is it increasingly challenging to find the motivation to stay physically active? Perhaps you're an athlete looking to achieve performance goals? Recovering from injury on the sports field, at work or in the car and looking to regain function, mobility, strength and confidence? The good news: you don’t have to do it alone.
Our qualified Personal Trainers can help you achieve your goals in more ways than you may have considered! Below are our top ten reasons why everyone should leverage our personal training services.
1. Build Injury Resilience
Ignorance and poor execution are common catalysts for injury. Our elite, knowledgeable Personal Trainers will improve your exercise execution competence so that you reduce your risk of injury and get the most out of each activity.
2. Personal Training is High-Value/Low-Cost
Training will typically cost between $37.50 and $85 per session. This can be less if you buy a package. While inexpensive, its imperative to focus on the value/benefits.
Let's say you purchase our four-session induction package at $295. Say you do one session per week, so your package is good for one month. Now, add up your luxury “feel good” monthly expenses for items such as clothes, shoes, cigarettes, dinners, alcohol, entertainment, etc. Is it more than $295? Most likely! Try cutting down a little (not completely) on some of these expenses and put some of your savings towards your health and future! When you consider the typical cost of after school childcare is $750 per month, achieving your health and fitness goals with highly certified health and fitness professionals for less than half that amount should be seen as a high value purchase.
3. Long-Term Guidance and Motivation
As we age, it gets harder to stay motivated towards exercise, so having a trainer guide and motivate you can keep you going. Our Trainers can provide structure and do the thinking for you so you can focus on the “doing” rather than the planning. Initially, you may need to see our trainer more often to get on the right track; however, once you have learned what to do and how to do it, you can spread your sessions out to every 1-3 weeks. Consider these sessions your “review, revise and revitalize” check-ups.
Our trainers will be there, waiting for you to show up. You can’t just find excuses not to go to the facility when someone is expecting you! Plus, your trainer reminds you of your reasons for wanting to exercise, and helps you understand why it’s so important even when you feel as though you could talk yourself out of it!
5. Variety and Creativity
Our trainers are professionals who are well versed in making exercise “fun” and more interesting by offering a wide variety of creative exercises. Too many of us get bored with our gym routines and start finding reasons not to go. Keep it interesting! We have unique training modalities such as calisthenics, stick mobility, kettlebells, powerlifting, rowing, sprint-training and much more.
6. Learn Life-Long Skills
The role of our Personal Trainer is to provide you with the right knowledge, resources, guidance, training and skills so that you can do “it” for yourself! He or she is there to support you as you work towards enhancing the quality of your life now and in the future. Let our trainers guide you and teach you how to be your own Personal Trainer!
7. Put the “Personal” in your Training
A skilled trainer will assess your specific needs, injuries, health conditions or training goals (that Triathlon you’re dreaming about, for example). He/she will then develop a personalized plan with clear timelines and short-term achievement goals that will safely and effectively enable you to succeed.
8. Learn Effective and Efficient Techniques
Spending too much time at the gym with not enough results? We can save you plenty of time and energy wasted doing inefficient workouts. We show you how to maximize your efforts and your results.
9. Lose Stubborn Fat
It can become increasingly challenging to lose fat, especially as we age. Why? Four main reasons: loss of calorie burning muscle tissue, increase in caloric intake, decreased activity levels, and changes in hormone balance. Our trainers can help you build and maintain muscle mass, increase caloric expenditure, optimize nutrition and refer you to the proper specialists to address any medical issues such as hormonal imbalances that may be impeding your success.
10. A Trainer is a Great Resource
At Gravity, we have in-house and a network of other specialists in the areas of Nutrition, Physiotherapy, Fascial Stretch Therapy, Active Rehab, Kinesiology, and more. We can ensure that the right specialists for all your health and fitness needs are available.
Set the stage for a healthier future
There's little that any physician, Personal Trainer or pill can do for you, over what you can do for yourself. Being willing to make real long-term changes in your life is an inside job. Hiring a qualified trainer, even temporarily, can set the stage for a healthier, happier and more functionally active future.
We all want to be healthy and happy well into our senior years. Why not let a qualified and certified Personal Trainer get you started in the right direction and spark your internal drive to continue your health and fitness with “revitalizing” check-ups as appropriate. After all, while our top ten reasons to hire a trainer are important, the number-one reason will always be your health and vitality!
