Prior to getting started,
our personal trainers will meet with you for a free consultation. During this
time, our personal trainers will ask you questions about your fitness goals,
past history with exercise, etc, to get an idea of what type of program is right
for you. All of our personal training programs are specifically tailored
to meet each client's specific goals.

Do I need equipment?

you a great workout.
What exactly does a Personal Trainer do?
At Every Body’s Personal Trainer, our personal trainers are highly
skilled and nationally certified, and have many roles when working with clients.
Your personal trainer will serve as a coach, teacher and motivator. It is the
personal trainer's job to assess your current physical and mental state,
establish very specific goals, design an individualized program, and do what
ever it takes to keep you on track towards getting results.
What about nutrition?
Exercise is extremely important
in achieving your fitness goals, however, proper nutrition can not be ignored.
Our personal trainers are very knowledgeable in regards to nutrition, and would
love to help you create a diet plan. Our personal trainers will keep you
accountable with your diet which will help speed up your results.
Once I begin working with a personal trainer, what will
happen during the sessions?
During your free consultation with one of our personal trainers, we will
ask you some questions about your specific goals and conditions.
During the consultation, which
lasts approximately 1 hour, your personal trainer will gather as much
information on your medical and exercise history as possible in order to create
the best program for you. Next your trainer will establish realistic goals and
discuss the strategies that will be used to accomplish them. Body fat testing,
body girth measurements, flexibility, cardio, and strength testing may all be
done during the consultation process.
The next session focuses on nutrition. We believe that the nutritional
component is responsible for up to 70% of the programs results. This is why we
spend up to one hour educating and transitioning the client into an
individualized nutritional program. The programs success is based on the
philosophy that each person has to have realistic goals, become educated, and
gradually change eating habits. We will go grocery shopping with you, e-mail you
daily, and make phone calls to keep you on track with your program. By the end
of the nutritional consultation, you will know exactly what is required of you
in order to achieve the goals that you have established.
The next time you meet with your trainer, you will start weight
resistance and cardiovascular training. Your trainer will demonstrate proper
form and technique and explain to you the fundamentals behind the specific
training that you are focusing on. Although high intensity training is the
ultimate goal, you can expect to take it easy for the first couple of sessions
to allow your body to adjust to the new style of training.
Your personal trainer will teach you about cardiovascular training.
Depending on your program, your trainer will set you up on cardio goals for each
week. There will be a complete cardiovascular schedule for each week of the
program. You will learn about high and low intensity cardio and how these styles
of training fit into your specific program.
How much will it cost me?

Every Body’s Personal Trainer. The cost is determined by the following:
