Motivation – Personal trainers wear many hats, serving not only as coach, but as an educator, confidant, role model and a major source of motivation and encouragement as well.

Consistency – Do you find it difficult to stick to your program? Scheduling regular appointments with a personal trainer helps eliminate any excuses you might come up with for not exercising.

Individualized Instruction – What works for one person, may not work for another when it comes to choosing an exercise program. A personal trainer will develop the most effective program for you based on your fitness evaluation results and personal goals. Beginners in particular benefit from instruction on how to perform specific exercises and program planning.

Effective Workouts – Today’s hectic lifestyles mean you don’t have time to waste on ineffective exercise routines. Personal trainers help maximize your time by providing workouts designed to meet your goals quickly and efficiently.

Supervision – Personal attention during exercise is the primary function of personal trainers. Need someone to spot you while you do pull-ups? Looking for feedback on your running form? No problem-that’s what your personal trainer is for-to observe, assist and, if necessary, correct as needed.

Evaluation – Your personal trainer keeps track of your progress along the way. Your strength gained and stamina increase, weight lost and muscle gained all can be tracked.

Devani’s Transformation Story

Devani1`Yo-Yo dieter to the T……that’s me. I’ve always fluctuated with my weight. I’d get on some crazy extreme diet, loose a ton of weight just to gain it back plus 10….and repeat. This last and final quest for weight loss came when I was at my heaviest of 240 pounds. I had it in my mind the kind of body I wanted but couldn’t stay motivated long enough to get the results. Then in November of 2011 my brother become paralyzed from the T-4 down (breastbone). His life of being very athletic and physically fit was suddenly dramatically changed. From that day on I decided to change my life. I was heavy, I was un-healthy, I was un-happy….I just wasn’t living life fully. I told myself I’d never take my legs for granted again, I was going to move my body every day, because I have seen how it can be taken from you in an instant. Tons of exercise…..boot camp, zumba, body pump, cycling, running, swimming, at home workout videos…..you name it, I do it. I re-vamped my whole diet and the pounds came off. Now, two years later I weigh 140…… making that a total of 100 pounds lost. My family, my friends, trainer and workout buddies are my motivation to stay focused every day. Now I just love the way I feel when I exercise, I love the way I feel when I put healthy food in my body. It’s more than looking good, it’s about feeling good; feeling alive and I do feel better than ever. I do still have that “free” day every once in awhile and binge on the fatty foods I love, but end up regretting it the next day. It’s poison and my body isn’t used to it anymore. I love food, but I have learned portion control and everything in moderation and I just keep telling myself that feeling and looking good is better than the way anything tastes. This is my new lifestyle and because of my change I feel more confident, physically & mentally stronger, happier and I am truly the healthiest that I’ve ever been. My family is also taking the right steps to being healthier as well, we exercise as a family and cook healthy meals together instead of hitting the drive thru…..my son’s know what’s in a chicken nugget and they won’t eat them anymore . Looking back at my “fat” pictures is a constant reminder to never go back there, I am disgusted with the way I looked 100 pounds heavier and I will never be that person again! Some days I still struggle with eating right and with motivation to exercise…..but it all comes back to why I made the decision to change, and I look at how hard I’ve worked; how great I feel….that motivates me to workout. It’s really mind over matter and most days I’m strong. I continue working toward my goal everyday; I am not yet where I want to be, but far from where I was. I still have lots more toning to do and about 15 to 20 pounds of fat to lose. Another goal of mine is to compete in a triathlon next summer alongside my brother in his adaptive equipment. With the help of my personal trainer I know I will accomplish my goals. Cheers to a fit and happy life forever!
