The Proof Behind Personal Training

The Proof Behind Personal Training

 

An article was recently published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research that compared the results of 30 – 44 year old men who were all members of a health club.  Half of the men were assigned to a supervised, periodized training protocol with a personal trainer and the other half were performing a self directed exercise routine.  The group trained 3 times per week for 12 weeks.

Not only did the group under supervision of a personal trainer have greater improvement in strength and cardiovascular capacity, but one of the tests for the self directed group got worse!  This is the first time, to my knowledge, that reinforced the anecdotal evidence that people receive greater results when they work with a trainer.

If you are interested in seeing results talk to one of our personal trainers!  We have several different packages in 1 hour and 30 minute sessions.  Our weight loss program–Shed and Shred–and spots always fill fast!
