Whether you’re an athlete or someone looking to achieve a fitness or wellness goal, it’s natural to hit speed bumps and plateaus along the way. This can include overtraining yourself, having trouble staying motivated, trying to overcome an injury or simply just not knowing what the next step in your training should be.
For these and other reasons, many people turn to a personal trainer to help them meet their individual needs. Although people are sometimes concerned about issues like cost and time, the fact is that the many benefits that personal training offer more than outweigh the cost for a large number of athletes and other active people. If you’re an Oakland, California, resident who is exploring the possibility of personal training, we’ve prepared the following guide to some of the advantages it can offer.
What personal training can do for you
Working with a personal trainer gets you one-on-one attention as you work to achieve your athletic performance and/or fitness goals. You also get feedback about your form and progress that you can’t get working alone and is often difficult to get working in a large group setting.
At SOL Physical Therapy, we can offer the following benefits with our personal training programs:
- An initial evaluation that includes a functional movement test
- Identification of risk factors for injury such as muscle imbalances and form issues
- Expert assistance with establishing performance baselines and goals for your training
