The goal is to build a body optimized for any situation: athletic, agile, and strong. An exceptional training program improves the shape of your body, while teaching you how to carry yourself through life with balance and strength.
Fitness means something different to everyone. Maybe you want to get lean and strong. Maybe you want more muscle, or more stamina. Better posture. Weight loss. Or all of the above. Whatever your goals are, you can get there quicker than you think.
The traditional approach to personal training wastes time and money. Nobody needs an hour to get a great full-body workout — you spend half your time catching your breath anyway. Why not find a new level of intensity, then catch your breath when you’re done?
Strength training effectively means mastering the finer details of technique. It’s important to learn the mechanics of compound movement, so that you can take all your training skills with you and apply them to other fitness disciplines.
The cookie-cutter approach to fitness doesn’t work. Your goals are not the same as the person next to you in that crowded fitness class. Your individual training program needs to be designed around your specific goals.
An great trainer sets you up for success. They motivate you, sure, but more importantly, they teach you how to motivate yourself. And as your athleticism improves, your training program needs to evolve in exact proportion to your progress.
Fast. Intense. Fun. These are the 3 best things about any great workout. Don’t just learn how to push yourself, learn how to enjoy pushing yourself. That way you’ll never have to dread working out again.
Boredom is the real enemy. It’s crucial to master new and gradually more complex movements, so that your body (and brain) never have a chance to plateau. That’s one of the best things about strength training — there’s always a new challenge around the corner.
