personal trainING Austin
Personal training involves working with a personal trainer to help you reach your fitness goals. Your personal trainer will create a customized fitness plan, according to your needs and work with you over a series of personal training sessions. Personal training can help you stay motivated and keep you accountable and on track with your fitness goals.
What are some of the benefits of personal training?
According to a study conducted by the Journal of Sports Sciences & Medicines, working with a personal trainer boosts your success rate by over 30%. Studies have also shown that personal training results in more improvements in your strength than other fitness programs.
Other benefits of personal training include customized fitness plans, personalized attention, motivation and guidance. Personal training and getting in shape also reduces your chances of developing chronic disease.
Your personal trainer will also educate you on exercising. Education increases your chances of success, improves workout effectiveness and greatly helps to minimize your risk of injuries.
At Invictus Fitness, we take a 3 prong approach to educating our clients, helping them to understand their body, exercise and nutrition.
I have a hard time sticking to a fitness program. Can personal training help?
Many people have a hard time finding the time or discipline to workout, particularly in the beginning of their fitness journey. Personal training provides discipline; it’s also flexible with your time. As a result, it has a better chance of keeping you committed and on track with your fitness program long-term than other fitness regimens.
Personal training provides the tools you need to keep going, even during the times when you want to give up.
Personal training also provides accountability. It’s much easier to dodge a group class, for instance, than your personal trainer.
Personal trainers are also excellent sources of motivation. A good personal trainer will keep your personal training sessions fun and challenging, while helping you to set realistic goals, so that you avoid overtraining and burnout.
Are there different types of personal training?
Personal trainers can have different styles of training. There are also a variety of fitness techniques, and some personal trainers specialize in these techniques. Others may have a more rounded fitness approach in their personal training.
At Invictus Fitness, we provide customized fitness plans. We gear our training towards our clients, providing a more individualized, rounded approach that's based on our client's goals, needs, body type, lifestyle and more. We also offer nutrition consulting as part of our personal training.
Types of personal training can vary by individual or group size. At Invictus Fitness, we offer one on one personal training to our Austin TX clients, in addition to couples personal training and small group personal training. We also offer personal training bootcamps. Other personal trainers may only focus on one on one training, or they may only train small groups.
Some personal trainers will work with you at your home. Others are employed by a gym and will work with you in a membership gym setting. Some trainers offer online personal training, while others only work in person. Here at Invictus Fitness, we focus on in home personal training, mobile personal training and online personal training.
In order to find the best personal trainer for you, we always suggest setting up a time to speak with a personal trainer you're considering. At Invictus Fitness, we offer a free consultation, so we can get a better idea of your needs and goals and ensure that our Austin personal trainers are the right fit for you.
What are realistic goals in personal training?
When we talk about goals in your personal training, we’re typically referring to a few different things.
One example of a personal training goal is fitness-related. This could involve goals such as decreasing BMI, losing weight, building strength, gaining muscle, or improving your overall fitness level.
Another type of personal training goal is performance-based. This could involve training for a specific event, such as a marathon, or trying to improve your fitness level in certain aspects. For instance, if you want to focus on strength training and already have strong cardiovascular fitness.
Whatever types of goals you have, your personal trainer will work with you to create a plan to reach them.
If you're serious about getting in shape and improving your health, personal training can be a great way to do so. If you’re in the Austin area and ready to get started on your personal training, or if you have more questions, contact Invictus Fitness for a free consultation!
