Big franchises, local gyms, specialty fitness – Reno has a lot of options for fitness. To someone interested in committing to some kind of fitness plan, it can be a little overwhelming. Where should they get started? Will a $10 gym membership keep them committed? Should they shell out hundreds for a ten-week fitness boot camp? The best choice will depend on a person’s individual goals. What are they trying to achieve? Almost always, a good personal trainer makes all the difference. But there’s a difference between a group fitness instructor, a spin instructor, and a certified personal trainer. If you’re interested in finding a good personal trainer in Reno, here’s what to know.
What are You Hoping to Achieve?
Spend some time figuring out your motivation. Are you looking to lose body fat and add muscle? Do you want to fit into a certain pair of jeans again? Do you want to improve your overall health and fitness? Do you want to run a 5k, a 10k, maybe a half marathon or a triathlon? Do you want to enter a fitness competition? Being clear about your goals will help you zero in on the kind of trainer you need.
Many people turn to certified personal trainers for the same reasons:
- They need a specific plan of action, from the exercises to the number of sets to intensity to duration.
- They want to see measurable results.
- They want to be held accountable and stay motivated.
A good trainer will deliver all of these things, and some are simply better at doing so than others. In this industry, experience speaks volumes. That’s why it’s telling that Framework Personal Training here in Reno has been in business for 23 years.
In 1998, Paul Fischer wanted the flexibility to train his clients without the limitations of a corporate environment. Both his years of experience and his professional background gave him a valuable perspective, and he opened a private gym to share it with the people who would most benefit.
Today, Framework is still a private gym, doing what it’s done since it opened. A small team of highly qualified trainers works with clients – specializing in fitness after forty – in the efficient, effective, competent manner it always has. While fitness fads come and go and Reno gyms open and close, it’s clear that Framework has done something right for decades now.
How to Find a Personal Trainer
The most important thing to remember as a prospective client looking for a personal trainer is that not every trainer is a good fit for every client. Spend some time thinking about your goals and what matters to you in a trainer. Be prepared to ask questions about a trainer’s qualifications, experience, and fitness philosophy. If you have physical limitations or old injuries, ask how the trainer will accommodate them.
Don’t assume that splashy summer deals mean a trainer or a gym will automatically be a good choice. And don’t skip a chance to interview a potential trainer. At Framework, we offer complimentary new client consultations. It gives our trainers a chance to meet prospective clients, ask and answer questions, share information, and assess the general dynamic. It’s a valuable meeting for both client and trainer, and it can help ensure you don’t get started with the wrong trainer. If you’re considering a personal trainer here in Reno, we invite you to contact us today so we can schedule a time to meet.
