Nathan can take the person just beginning their fitness journey to someone needing to change things up or be guided through more advanced techniques.

What does personal training entail? Why should I have a personal trainer?
Do you want to hire a personal trainer to help you get in shape, but wonder if you should spend the money? Working with a trainer can push your fitness level forward much more quickly than working out on your own.
Here are seven reasons why hiring a skilled personal trainer is a great investment:
1. Trainers provide accountability & motivation
Do you want to face your trainer and tell them that you didn’t work out yesterday? Sure, you can get this accountability from a dedicated friend who works out with you, but this is the trainer’s job. He or she has a vested interest in seeing that you complete your workouts.
Also, if you’re paying a trainer, do you really want to slack off and feel like you aren’t getting the most for your money? Money spent is good motivation to work out.
2. Trainers provide expertise
A good personal trainer will watch closely to ensure that you are doing the exercises properly to maximize your result and target the intended muscle group. Consistently doing an exercise incorrectly can lead to injury.
3. A trainer will push you just enough
A trainer will push you harder than you will push yourself, but keep you from rushing ahead too quickly.
Expert trainers know alternative exercises if you have difficulty with one or if you have an injury to work around. Sometimes a modified version of an exercise is necessary, depending on your fitness level. A good trainer will expertly shape an exercise for you.
4. A trainer helps you identify and reach goals
Together, you will create a set of attainable goals. He or she will help you attain them throughout your training and provide encouragement when discouragement tries to set in.
5. A trainer will personalize your workout
Quality trainers know how to customize a workout based on your individual strengths, weaknesses and goals.
6. Trainers can reduce the possibility of injury
An injury can derail a workout program and cause so much discouragement that you could lose momentum and determination to continue. A good trainer will help you to do exercises properly so that you won’t injure yourself.
7. No judgment
Each and every person has a different reason to workout. Your fitness level and goal will be fine-tuned to fit your body and what works best for you. The only negative you'll be seeing are the pounds and inches!
