What can a Personal Trainer do for you?

Contact a SPC Personal Fitness Trainer today and kick start your health for the summer.

Improve Your Overall Fitness.  The primary reason people hire a personal trainer is to get professional assistance to improve cardiovascular health, strength, flexibility, endurance, posture, balance and coordination. A personal trainer will monitor your progress and fine-tune your program as you go, helping you set realistic goals along the way and determine safe training strategies, all while providing the encouragement you need.

Make it Sticky.  Sticking with well made plans is one of the biggest challenges people face. Qualified personal trainers can provide motivation for developing a lifestyle that places a high priority on health and activity. A personal trainer can help you brainstorm ways to overcome your biggest obstacles to exercise.

Focus on Your Unique Health Concerns.  A survey from the IDEA Health & Fitness Association shows that 50 percent of personal training clients have special medical needs, such as arthritis, diabetes or obesity. A personal trainer can help you with these or other issues, including low-back pain, rehabilitation from injury and pre/postnatal training. Your personal trainer can work with your physician, physical therapist or other health care provider to plan a safe, efficient program that will speed your recovery or enable you to reach your health goals.

Learn New Skills. Want to improve your tennis game, become an in-line skater, golf like a pro, better your weekend basketball game or get ready for a wilderness adventure vacation? An individualized program can improve your overall conditioning and develop the specific skills you need.

Contact a SPC Personal Fitness Trainer today and kick start your health for the summer.
