What Should You Expect From a Personal Training Studio in Calgary?

We all have different expectations when it comes to training and what we require of our personal trainer and facility. In this article I will tell you what you should be looking for in a personal training studio. You need a facility that is going to be effective in meeting your goals, level and needs safely.

You want to go to a facility where the trainers have a variety of areas of expertise, knowledge and certifications and don’t come from a cookie cutter mold. Each of you that walk through the doors of a training facility is looking for a fitness experience that is as unique as you are and require equally unique trainers to help you achieve your goals. The trainers should have years of experience in a variety of areas of expertise such as rehabilitation, weight loss, endurance training, strength training, sport specific training, cardio endurance, etc. They shouldn’t all have the same specialty areas.

You should expect the facility that you choose to have certified trainers. A weekend course or on line courses are not enough. All of our trainers have kinesiology degrees or the Mount Royal Personal Training Program or equivalent, current CPR and First-aid along with a variety of other certifications. We even have one trainer with a Masters in human kinetics who is working on his PHD. You should expect the trainers at the facility you choose to stay current. You shouldn’t know more then the trainer. Continuing education is a must in the ever changing field of health and fitness. Achieving your goals is important, but doing it in a safe effective manner is a must.

Finally, look for a personal training studio. Many large facilities offer personal training as one of their many programs, but you want a facility that specializes in personal training. One that focuses on personal and small group training so the experience is all about you. A boutique personal fitness studio that is designed specifically for individual training is what you want to look for. You will definitely get a better training experience in a facility like that, because when someone only does one thing they usually do it very well.

Remember when you are looking for a personal training studio call and ask not only about pricing, but about the qualifications of its trainers and staff.
