If you live in Houston, TX, it’s easy to find the right gym or trainer, just come to RC Fitness & Signature Physiques Studio. However, not everyone can get there, so providing some additional help is necessary. Our online fitness program can help turn any place you are the perfect gym and provide a trainer that will help you shed extra pounds and build the perfect body, but if you want a more hands on face-to-face experience, there are some things to look for before you make your decision.
Find a trainer that creates a program designed especially for your needs.
No two people are alike, so their programs shouldn’t be alike either. You may have a different goal, special needs like physical limitations and a fitness level that’s different from other people, even family members. That’s why I always recommend you work with a trainer that learns about you before providing a workout program. That way it would be personalized, to help you specifically with your problems with a challenging workout that is still within your capabilities.
Find a gym or trainer that offers nutritional advice.
What you eat is just as important as how much or what type of workout you do. You can’t out-exercise a bad diet. Even if you did a calorie torching workout, but ate a supersized Big Mac meal immediately following, you’d still gain weight, without getting the benefits of all the nutrients of healthy eating. Find a trainer that helps you learn how to eat healthier and provides a program you can follow that will baby your body, while helping you shed calories.
Look for a gym or trainer that helps you make goals and track your progress.
It’s not as easy to create a goal as you might think. Goals have to be measurable, have a timeline, a plan to achieve the goal and be realistic. Just saying you want to lose weight isn’t enough and creating a goal to shed 100 pounds in a month isn’t achievable if you’re healthy. Trainers should help you set the goals and provide steps to help you achieve them. The trainer should then continue to monitor you each step of the way to make sure that the program is working.
- Find a trainer that will show you how to do each exercise correctly. In person trainers aren’t like watching a DVD where you can view it multiple times to get it right. Doing an exercise wrong can cause injury or minimize the benefit.
- You need a workout program that is varied frequently to avoid plateauing and boredom. A good trainer will change your workout frequently.
- As you get fitter, a trainer should change your workout to match that improvement. Look for guidance from a trainer or at a gym to help you track the workout so you can identify when it occurs.
- One of the easiest ways to workout is to do it in the comfort and privacy of your own home. At RC Fitness, our online training lets you do it and you can even workout with others to make it more fun.
