A qualified personal trainer is someone who has the expertise, educational background and diagnostic know-how to design an individualized exercise program.
Once your trainer has found out what your goals are, he or she can tailor a program to help you achieve them.
In fact, personal training has proved so effective it has spread well beyond the realm of the rich and famous.
Today, personal trainers are used by people at all fitness, age and economic levels-and from all over the world-to help make lifestyle changes those people couldn’t achieve by themselves.
At the beginning of your first private exercise session and consultation, your trainer will discuss your fitness/weight loss goals, health issues and/or injuries and customize a nutrition plan just for you.
Motivation. A trainer will help you develop the incentive to stick to your exercise plan.
Guidance. Your trainer will teach you correct form, which will maximize efficiency and effectiveness and minimize the chance of injury.
Everyone has unique fitness needs based on their health and lifestyle. The difference between a good personal trainer and an excellent personal trainer is dedication, motivation and consistency.
Ron has a holistic approach to fitness, and he practices what he preaches.
l feel really fortunate to have Ron as a personal trainer. Prior to meeting him, I spent years trying to sort out the best physical ﬁtness and health regime. Over the past several months he has not only helped me to re-orient my thinking about fitness and nutrition, he has enabled me to reach new plateaus of overall well-being. As of nine months ago, I would never have gotten up at 6:00 in the morning to work out. Now I want to!
He proved to me that I could get just as good a workout, if not a better workout, by using half the weight.
Of everything that Ron taught me probably the one thing I will remember most is his persistency on quality workouts rather than quantity workouts. He proved to me that I could get just as good a workout, if not a better workout, by doing half the weight I was using. Ron's concern for proper form and technique was a tremendous positive during our sessions together. I would not hesitate to recommend Design by Fitness to anyone who is willing to put the time and effort into themselves. Ron is a great motivator and a person genuinely dedicated to his profession.
Being fit was more than just having lost weight.
What I admire most about Ron's style of training is the emphasis on fitness. I see other people with trainers who concentrate on making them big with weights without discussing aerobic training or diet. Ron concentrates on aerobics, stretching and weight training always emphasizing proper technique. He clearly explains why one way of doing an exercise is better than another while guiding you through a very well-rounded exercise routine. The building block approach is very effective because you don't get discouraged right away by not being able to perform an exercise. Ron pushes you to a point beyond where you might feel you could go but before you would get discouraged. A workout with Ron is never easy, but it's always satisfying. Being fit was more than just having lost weight.
Each day I felt my body changing in such a way, that I had never experienced in my four years of working out.
In the beginning, the training was difficult. Although I had been working out in a gym for approximately four years, I had never approached it with such intensity. Ronald changed my outlook on exercise. Within two weeks, I experienced astounding differences. My energy level had increased, I was no longer tired during the cardio portion of my workout, and most importantly, my attitude was changing. Ronald has a natural talent for fitness. He is able to personalize a program in such a way, that you can't "not" experience results.
Anyone who trains with Ron will come away with a lot more than just a fitter body.
After three weeks, I was ready to give up. Ron spent the next hour just talking about our lives outside of me gym, how what we were doing in the gym positively affects our lives outside the gym. FOCUS... Facing and conquering the next challenge, and the satisfaction that goes along with moving on to the next level. Over the next year, I trained with Ron twice a week, and found he was able to get me up on a Saturday morning reaching limits I never thought possible and feeling excited.
