Are you intimidated by the heavy metal equipment coating the floors of gyms? How about the numerous sweating buffed bodies flexing and parading their hard bodies while you simply try to figure out how to turn on a treadmill?
These circumstances do not have to keep you from your desire to get in shape! Over the years gym owners and members alike have taken note of the reasons many people stay away from gyms…intimidation of equipment, intimidation of other members and lack of education. While personal trainers were available for gym members and for at-home training, many people thought that these options were merely services for the “rich and famous.”
Gym owners and personal trainers began to recognize that not just the elite could benefit from personal services. In an attempt to create facilities that cater to the “everyday people,” private fitness training facilities emerged.
So how are private fitness training facilities different from the “gym?” Well, I’m glad you’ve asked!
Private and semi-private fitness training facilities offer an abundance of resources to help educate members on the importance of proper fitness techniques. Personal trainers work with each individual member on a one-on-one basis or small group setting. This allows the trainer to learn about each member’s needs, goals and then allows them to develop a plan which will help the member achieve the results they desire. Jordan Aucoin, owner of Prep Fitness in Prairieville, explains that fitness training facilities produce a higher successful rate than open gyms. This is done because trainers evaluate each member’s goals, fitness level, and health conditions then help educate and guide members with a “blueprint to the most beneficial and efficient path to improved performance.” Aucoin says, “At our facility you get results. This is because our programs are based on the individual’s fitness level and goals. We don’t take the ‘cookie cutter’ approach that you get when you join a gym; rather we apply the ‘Quality before Quantity’ approach.”
Members work in a supervised environment with a certified personal trainer guiding them towards a healthier lifestyle. It’s all about educating the client and teaching them the appropriate fitness techniques which will help them sustain a successful fitness program, Aucoin explains further. “There’s no reason to feel intimidated by the heavy metal equipment or the crowds of members. Now people can come to a facility that caters to the individual’s needs through private and semi-private training while receiving guidance and support every step of the way. We take the fear out of ‘improving physical performance!’ ”
