Alright, this topic is overdone. So why do we want to mention for the millionth time why you should have a personal trainer? Because you know what the right path is, but you have not made the move yet. How do we know? The odds are with us unfortunately, that you are not exercising regularly even though you may have joined lots of gyms. You seem to get bored with your personal training routines and decide to opt-out after 2-8 weeks on average. So let’s see if we can come up with some good reasons why you should be doing personal training in Tempe or at our Midtown location utilizing our coaches to guide you through your efforts.
I use the term coach most of the time because we coach classes and the whole one-on-one personal training has become a luxury of the past for most people. Coaches help you to learn and perform and get the most out of your performance. The term “Personal Trainers” conjures up a memory of somebody watching CNN on the TV and watching the clock while you ride the bike and tell him about your friend who lost all kinds of weight eating only grapefruits. So we use the term coach but for the purposes of this article you may find the terms interchangeable.
1. Have you visited your local gym and been totally confused on where to start and how to use the machines? You likely just went to the treadmill where you felt comfortable and jogged or walked for 10-15 minutes, roamed around a little and left. You need a personal trainer
2. Do you rise up on your toes when you squat? Go ahead, try it, I’ll wait… or do you push through the heels activating the entire posterior chain? Do you even know what the heck we are talking about? If not, you need a personal trainer.
3. Are you working those biceps hard? Seeing some gains in arm size? Seeing no gains in shrinking your waist size? You need a personal trainer.
4. You like to work the chest and arms, but you hate working the legs and core. The Chinese say, what you don’t like is what you need. You need a personal trainer.
5. Have you ever done a pull-up? Can you do one now? Been using the Graviton at the gym and still can’t do a pull-up? Everyone can do a pull-up if you are trained properly. You need a personal trainer.
6. You are squatting 300 pounds, but you never come down lower than 45 degrees. Then you are not squatting 300 pounds, you are moving 300 pounds very little distance. Let’s not even discuss this. You need a personal trainer.
7. Have you been doing core training? Can you hang from a bar and bring your feet straight up so your toes touch the bar? If not your core training is not working. You need a personal trainer.
8. Have you been doing functional training? When was the last time you did a heavy deadlift or push press overhead? Can you squat down so your butt hits your calves like you see the local tribes people do on all those documentaries you watch about indigenous people of the Amazon? When was the last time you did these exercises for moderately heavy reps of 21? If you are not picking things off of the floor, putting them overhead and squatting down then you are not doing functional training. It doesn’t get any more functional than that. You need a personal trainer.
9. Do you know that your best window of opportunity to eat carbohydrates and protein is within 30-60 minutes post workout? Do you know why and if you miss this opportunity you will likely not comeback as fully charged in your next workout? Do you know why the calories on the label do not reflect the actual calories you digest and that some should not be counted? Do you know that just because the label says that it has no trans fats that it still may actually contain trans fats? The list just goes on and on… if you don’t know these things, you need a personal trainer.
10. Alright there is all the other good stuff like accountability, guidance, support… yada, yada, yada… but we know that most people are not getting results. There are 40 million gym memberships in this country and obesity and disease just keeps rising. The system is broke and it just does not work. Our system works because we use science and experience and it is fun. We don’t expect you to have an expertise in either of these two areas and we know that very few people know how to create an addictive game out of their workouts. Well we do. You do what you do best and we do what we do best. We use Six Sigma Fitness™ methodologies, which means we have one of the best systems on earth, but how do you start it? We can teach you a focused step by step approach to learning the Six Sigma Fitness™ system and scale the program to your needs and abilities. But to do this, let’s say it again… you need a personal trainer.
