Why Should I use a Personal Trainer?
LEARN SAFE TRAINING METHODS
Contrary to popular belief, there is a right and wrong way to weight train, stretch and perform cardiovascular exercise. When done correctly and matched to an individual’s body type and biomechanics, most exercises are simple and almost always safe. FormWell trainers constantly supervise and coach so that injuries can be nearly eliminated and you’ll always know you are doing each exercise correctly. FormWell also advocates and encourages the use of Heart Rate monitors when performing all cardiovascular training.
SEE AND FEEL HEALTHY RESULTS
A study conducted by IDEA (International Association of Fitness Professionals) showed that clients who worked with a personal trainer achieve 25% greater results in strength and body composition than those working alone. A random sample of FormWell clients who trained with us for at least 6 months lost an average of 11% body fat! A FormWell trainer will work you harder and help you achieve greater results while incurring fewer injuries
DON’T WASTE TIME OR MONEY!
Why waste precious time and energy “spinning your wheels” and not achieving your health and fitness goals? At FormWell, our trainers are experts in providing a complete balanced workout that is affordable for most people and can be completed in 30-60 minutes
BE CHALLENGED! HAVE FUN!
There is no “magic pill” or “easy” way to achieve the results you desire In order for exercise to have any effect, it must be challenging but it should be enjoyable at the same time. FormWell trainers will tailor a program to your specific needs and match the training to the activities you like. We will motivate and inspire you and make the experience as fun as possible
We guarantee that if you work hard, you will feel better after every workout!
