How to find the personal trainer for you
Your personal trainer is there to help you reach your goals. Your trainer is a person you may meet with once a month or once a day. When going to a consultation with a trainer or to meet yours for the first time, be yourself! You want a trainer that pushes you to be your best, but you also want someone you can see yourself getting along with.

After the second part of the consultation, your trainer will review your information and design a program specifically for you. No two plans are the same.
No pain, only gains.
Why you need to exercise smarter, not harder
That sore, tired, torn feeling we get in our muscles the day or days after a challenging work out is called DOMS, or delayed-onset muscle soreness. This is often where people believe they are making the most progress, physically.
True or false?
- Soreness is due to lactic acid buildup in the muscles
- Soreness is caused by microscopic tears in the muscles
- Being sore after exercise means we are building muscles
- if you work through the sore days , you will get better results.
