5 Benefits of a Personal Trainer

Personal Trainer

Does getting back in shape seem daunting? Start planning your journey to better health with your own YMCA personal trainer! Our services are designed to guide those who are totally new to an active lifestyle, or trying to get back on track. We’ll help you build a sustainable fitness routine, so you can enjoy the habit of healthy living.

YMCA personal trainers are…

Goal setters

Personal trainers help you define your fitness goals. They take into account your current fitness level and discuss what you want to achieve through your workouts. While you may have some idea of the goals you want to set, a professional is able to help you break them down into smaller goals that are specific and attainable. Personal trainers also helps assess your progress toward those goals and continue to tweak them to push you through plateaus so you continue to progress in your fitness journey.


Have you always been a little intimidated by all the machines at the gym? Your personal trainer will teach you proper form and technique so you learn how to execute exercises safely and effectively – thereby avoiding injury and getting the most out of your workouts.

Personalized Workout

Personal trainers create a specific workout plan just for you based on what you want to achieve. The personalized plan typically gives you better results than a general workout plan. Because they know your physical condition and medical background, they are able to make accommodations to the program to fit your specific needs.


Motivation is often difficult to maintain when you exercise on your own. Regular sessions with a personal trainer enhance your motivation to continue with a workout regimen. Even if you don’t use a personal trainer for every session, knowing that you’ll meet with your trainer soon will motivate you during workouts. You also get the satisfaction of showing your trainer the improvement you’ve made as your exercise program proceeds.


Personal trainers provide their clients with ongoing education and support surrounding all facets of maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle. At the YMCA, they help you work through fitness and nutrition deficits to give you all the tools you need to make positive choices. They also connect you to other health and fitness programs that would benefit your plan, such as nutrition programs, group fitness classes, swim or dance lessons.
