When you show up for your personal training session at our private personal training facility in south Edmonton, you embark on a journey meticulously crafted for your unique needs, goals and lifestyle. Our sessions, led by formally educated and certified personal trainers, are more than just workouts; they are an inclusive approach to fitness, combining expertise, personalization, and a deep understanding of the individual. Let’s walk through what a typical session looks like.
Initial Assessment: Understanding Your Unique Needs
Every fitness journey with us begins with a thorough assessment of your biomechanics, history, lifestyle, needs and goals. This isn’t just about measuring physical capabilities; it’s about understanding your daily routine, habits, past injuries, and personal fitness goals. Our trainers, equipped with formal education and experience in fitness and health, use this information to create a training plan that’s as unique as you are.
After assessing you, our personal trainers create a training plan tailored to you, but that encompasses our training philosophies and systems – building a foundation with safe and effective exercises that will not only get you to your fitness goals, but help you live life beyond the gym walls.
Warming Up: Laying the Foundation
A warm-up is essential, and ours are tailored to prepare your body for the specific workout ahead. This might include dynamic stretching, light cardio, or mobility exercises. The aim is to increase heart rate, enhance blood flow, and prepare your muscles and joints for the session, reducing the risk of injury. We also focus on your movement patterns. Our personal trainers help you refine your technique for the exercises to come, ensuring that you perform each exercise correctly and effectively. This is crucial, as proper movement forms the foundation for more advanced training, ensuring you progress safely and efficiently.
Power Training: Staying Fast
Power training is where things start to intensify. Depending on your fitness level and goals, this could involve plyometrics, throws, or explosive weight lifting, which is progressed and/or regressed to cater to your current fitness levels and abilities. The focus is on improving your speed and power, which are crucial for fitness performance and functional daily activities. For every year we age, we lose power and the ability to move quickly. It is essential to keep this function so we can prevent injury and falls. Power training is always modified for your age, fitness level and goals.
Strength Training: The Core of Your Workout
This is the heart of your session. Our personal trainers guide you through a series of strength training exercises and functional exercises, chosen to align with your specific goals. Whether it’s weight lifting or bodyweight exercises, each movement is selected to maximize your strength gains and overall physical development.
The session concludes with conditioning work to improve your ability to tolerate more work. This could range from high-intensity interval training (HIIT) to endurance exercises, depending on your needs, goals and abilities. Conditioning is vital for improving your cardiovascular health, stamina, and overall fitness.
Customized Training Plan: Beyond the Gym Walls
Our responsibility doesn’t end when the session does. We provide you with a customized training plan, including exercises and routines that you can do outside of our private personal training sessions. This “homework” ensures that you continue to progress, even when you’re not in the gym.
Continuous Assessment: Tracking Your Progress
In subsequent sessions, we continuously assess your progress, tweaking and advancing your training plan as you evolve and progress. This approach ensures that you are constantly challenged and progressing, and that your workouts remain effective and engaging.
A private personal training session at our Edmonton facility is a comprehensive, personalized experience. From the initial thorough assessment to the customized training plan and nutritional guidance, every aspect is designed to cater specifically to you.
