There are many benefits of a personal trainer for your unique body.

Getting fit can be hard. There’s the sweating, huffing and puffing. Plus, you have to stay motivated and, most importantly not get injured. How do some people do it? They have probably used the help of a good personal trainer who understands that each person has unique health needs. A good personal trainer can create exercises to help you become stronger, more flexible and toned in a way that is motivating and pain-free.

Does personal training really help?

Have you ever felt unsuccessful, uncomfortable or unmotivated about exercising? In the right environment, personal training by an expert can help ensure you are getting the most out of your workout. The trick is finding good personal training – experts who can teach you exercises and skills you can use for the rest of your life to avoid pain and injury.

Do I really need a personal trainer?

Yes! You have a unique body. A generic fitness class, gym circuit or internet workout may not be the most effective or safe exercise for your body. An expert in personal training will target your unique health goals and help you find exercises that make your body stronger, healthier and more fit.

Where to find the best personal trainer

At the Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa, guests are in a unique position. “At the Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa, we dial into detailed individual needs,” explains Jamie Costello, Director of Fitness at the Pritikin Center. During their stay, guests are evaluated by the Pritikin medical team. Next, a guest’s physiological abilities are screened through a biomechanical movement evaluation and a sub-maximal stress test (e.g. checks how well the body moves and heart pumps). These findings allow Pritikin’s team of Exercise Physiologists to place guests in group fitness activities based on their level of ability. After all of this, the Pritikin team knows you better than your doctor or any personal trainer at a gym. “We’re all different and so are our exercise needs,” notes Costello.

Having a personal trainer may cut down on doctor visits.
A research study found adults who met the recommended standards for aerobic physical activity were less likely to need to see a physician.
