Why a Personal Trainer?


Why I tell people I really like having a Personal Fitness Trainer and specifically Terence. I’ll tell you right off the bat, I am not related to him nor did I even know him before I selected him out of a group of personal trainers and started working with him.

#1 Reason to Have a Personal Fitness Trainer: Correct Training.

Tweaking how I do each exercise. Every session, every set. Terence knows which muscles he wants to see being exercised and looks to make sure that it is being exercised. If not, which is about every time, he tells me to tweak how I’m doing the exercise: chest up, chin up, arch the back, straighten the arm, raise the arm at a certain angle, get full motion, get partial motion, tighten the abdomen muscles, and a myriad of other nuances that I would never know I was doing incorrectly and not getting nearly the full benefit of the exercise. His instruction allows me to advance much, much more rapidly in my muscle development that I would ever do on my own.

#2 Reason to Have a Personal Fitness Trainer: Terence Makes It Super Easy.

I just show up. I don’t have to think about anything. I don’t have to think about what to work on - arms, upper body, abdomen, back, legs. We work on strength with free weights and weight machines plus balance plus agility. A fantastic combination! 


I don’t have to think about what exercise to do, how to do it with all its nuances, what order to do them, what weight to use, or anything else. Really, I just show up and Terence knows exactly what we are going to work on that session and everything else.


Don’t get me wrong though. The “process” is super easy. The exercising is not. But after an initial period of time, which for me was about 4 to 5 months of twice a week, I changed from “aching sore muscles” of those we had worked on to “good aches” of feeling the muscles were worked on and developing in a healthy way. I hope that makes sense. It’s difficult to describe. This was the point where I switched from any hesitancy of going to a personal fitness training session to an eagerness to go and actually missing it when I travel. 


#3 Reason to Have a Personal Fitness Trainer: Motivation.

The first aspect of motivation is simply obligating myself to have an appointment. On my own, I can easily make numerous excuses as to why I might delay or miss a session or stop altogether after “x” times of going to the fitness center? Sound familiar?


The second aspect of motivation is that Terence pushes me further than I think I can go with an exercise with the amount of weight or the number of reps and sets. He always has a very positive attitude and is very agreeably encouraging. I say he’s part “cheerleader” and I mean that in the most positive sense. Again, this process of his motivation has allowed me to develop my muscles, and therefore how wonderful I feel, much faster than I would have ever done on my own.


In summary, if you’ve ever wanted to get fit, or get more fit, and didn’t know how to get started or how to correctly do the exercises, or which exercises to do and in which order, or needed motivation, or would like to make it super easy on yourself without having to figure it all out, or any other reason that’s kept you from getting started or advancing as rapidly as you thought you should, now is the time to contact Terence.
