A certified personal trainer is a trained professional who provides skilled guidance in reaching health and fitness goals. Personal trainers create individualized exercise programs that are both safe and effective, taking into consideration their client's unique anatomy, health history, lifestyle, and goals. Research shows that working out with a personal trainer can increase the success rate of achieving your fitness goals by over 30 percent. Why? Personal trainers create exercise plans tailored to your unique needs that accommodate your unique lifestyle. They help you perform exercises with correct form and body mechanics, which prevents injury and strain setbacks. They increase your accountability in staying consistent with an exercise regimen, leading to long-term results. And, they can help give you general nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to improve your overall health.
