The End of Personal Training

I have owned a small gym Jackhammer Strength Training in Columbus, Ohio for three and a half years.  In that time I have trained over 1200 different people from all walks of life.  From sedentary moms to marathon runners, rugby players, and even Ironman Triathletes.  You might think that after 42 months I would have a ton of personal training clients.  However I have only one regular personal training client. 
Why do I only have one personal training client?  That is a great question and the best answer I can give you is that it is boring.  Yes personal training is boring.  In a one on one setting you truly get to know someone as well as all of the stuff going on in their lives especially if they do not have a filter. 
Why is small group training much better than personal training?  You can still have a personal training plan but with added benefits such as it being much more affordable like $8 per workout instead of $30-50 per session.  You are inspired and motivated not only by your trainer but also by the other people in the session. 

On the motivation front it is truly helpful to have an accountability partner someone to say get up, get your butt to the gym, we have work to do.  Almost everybody needs an accountability partner.  I know I do.  That is why I typically have 50 of them.
My goal as a trainer, gym owner, and user of the Fitranx system (the first standardized fitness training system in the world) is to make sure you are mobile enough to do all of the exercises that we use and if you are not give you corrective exercises so you can become mobile enough for said exercises.  Once you are mobile enough it is my hope that you will advance through the Fitranx levels.  I will help you do this by creating a personal training plan combined with complexes based on the level you are at.  We only do these plans when there are not very many people in our sessions.

If you want to know what kind of stuff we do check out our Youtube channel at:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNa0JU1qH4P12B0EKSVQ5hw


When we combine our regular Metabolic Resistance Training (the best way to burn fat) with a strength training plan and complexes we get the best from three different training strategies, can level up, and get way better results than from most personal training plans.  If you would like to try us out I would be honored.

Too Easy, Too Hard, Functional Movement, Progress

If you have taken years to get into horrible shape it is going to take a ton of hard work, many months, possibly years, and you are going to be incredibly sore afterwards sometimes.  If you just want general health running, swimming, and yoga might be sufficient. If you want to be strong and healthy though soreness is something you learn to live with.

I just got off the phone with someone who was sore after her first workout.  This is not uncommon.  She said it took her three days to walk relatively normal again.  That is unfortunate that she was in that much pain and that she could not walk normal.  I did not work her hard at least not in my mind.  She was perfectly fine during her entire workout.

I have a client who is 60 years old and can keep up with people in their mid 20`s with endurance and blow them away with her strength.  My system works for older people, younger people, people with no athletic background, all the way up to Iron Man Triathletes, and Muay Thai fighters.

It saddens me a little bit when other trainers say a trainer should not do something with someone on their first day.  Yes certain things should not be done on the first day but certain things should.  I want to have a baseline to show progress.

My general baselines are the Functional Movement Screen, weight, body fat, strength via 1 arm dumbbell rows, strength via pull ups usually with the help of not one but two resistance bands, speed via fast steps onto my 2 1/2 inch platform, and endurance via burpees unless they have horrible knees.

If someone can do 8 burpees but are completely gassed at 30 seconds and then a month later they can do 32 burpees in 2 minutes that is 400% progress.  These are the types of things that I can say look you did this now look what you can do.

I have had people tell me that it is too easy or too hard.  Usually in my professional experience and yes I am a professional this is what I do for a living people who think it is too easy are not pushing themselves hard enough.  Also most of the time when people think it is too hard they either do not let me know they are working too hard or more likely they want amazing results without putting in the work.  Maybe they bust their butts in the gym but do not know their way around the kitchen.  Sometimes someone will eat impeccably, train religiously, and still not get results because they drink like a fish every weekend.

I thought I was going to have 10 sessions today but I guess nine will have to do!

If you like this I would be thrilled if you would share it with your friends.
