According to the United States Census nearly 1 in 5 people suffer from a disability. Regardless of your physical challenges our program can help you safely improve your problem areas by boosting your flexibility, coordination, and overall strength. Unfortunately many personal trainers will turn away people suffering from disabilities, disease, or old age because of liability. My Personal Trainer believes if you can move, you can improve with our safe and effective program! “Some of my biggest success stories have been from these types of clients, and the personal self-gratification is the best!” (Eric Schaefer Owner). Just to name a few of the many limitations we work with, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, heart conditions, chronic fatigue, arthritis, back problems, lupus, knee problems, and vertigo. One of the major factors why our program is so effective and safe is we advocate slow repetitions on all of our equipment. By going slower a client uses less momentum and more strength. Too much momentum is the leading cause of many injuries in health clubs and gyms across the country. In the ten years My Personal Trainer has been incorporated not a single client has been directly injured from a workout session and we want to keep it that way!
These days younger adults are starting strength training earlier to get an edge on their peers in competitive sports. My Personal Trainer works directly with many of these student athletes to develop their strength, speed and flexibility with our progressive strength training program. We also cater to the older adult athlete who is looking to improve in their sport or maintain their athleticism as they age in life.
As we age, bone density decreases which causes a higher risk of fractures and breaks. Maintaining bone density is important for people of all ages. Exercise which causes the muscle to pull on the bone, such as proper progressive strength training, will help keep your bones strong! Strength training must be done with slow, smooth, non-ballistic movements. Good balance prevents falls and helps support you if and when you do take a spill. As we age, along with decrease in bone density, loss of balance also occurs; strength training will slow that process down! On average, every year we lose half a pound of muscle and gain one pound of fat. Building up the muscle around our joints helps us to move and react quicker; making it easier for us to catch ourselves and prevent injury! Strength training is a great way to build muscle, your heart being one of the most important muscles to build! A lot of people enjoy the benefits of cardio exercise; the same people may not know that proper progressive strength training also offers benefits to your cardio-respiratory health! As we age, our muscles (including our hearts) weaken; it is our responsibility to keep our bodies strong!
Perhaps one of the most sought after benefits of strength training is fat-loss. It is a common misconception that one must spend endless tiring hours exercising to reach their goals. The truth is actually quite the opposite; proper progressive strength training must be intense, infrequent and brief. At My Personal Trainer we offer life changing results in exchange for twenty minutes twice a week! We focus on adding lean, fat burning muscle and reducing body fat percent- leading to a trimmer, healthier and happier you! If you follow our program and commit to coming in our studios twice a week, you could see results as quickly as your first week. The combination of our anaerobic workout and nutritional guidance will help you reach your personal health and weight-loss goals in less time than you think!
