Finding a personal trainer in Queens can be tough. How do you choose one? Are there different specialties? What certifications matter? How do you find a coach that fits with your workout style? All of these are important considerations. There are probably hundreds of personal trainers in Astoria alone. It’s obviously important to listen to your intuition when choosing one, but part of the selection process involves seeing what the gym and trainer can offer you. We’d advise coming to our gym (or any other) with a list of questions so you can be fully informed. So what is personal training?
Personal training is a customized, one-on-one session with a qualified trainer. During the course of that session you’ll discuss your fitness goals, the challenges you’ve faced in working out, past and present injuries, nutrition, and other relevant information. Your personal coach will then lead you through a tailored workout to meet your needs while monitoring your form and condition. They’ll keep an eye on how you’re doing and adjust the intensity level as needed. With each progressive class you’ll learn new techniques, lift heavier weights, or engage in more rigorous cardiovascular exercise.
Personal training can be a very rewarding experience. You get to know your trainer on a more personal basis, make additional headway in your fitness from the extra attention, and have an expert available to regularly ask questions. It may be more expensive than taking regular workout classes but may be worth it depending on your needs and the timeframe during which you’re seeking results.
Of course, we always see a mixture of both personal training and group classes as very important to your fitness and personal development. Either way, be sure to do your research when deciding on a personal trainer.
