What alot of people don’t know, is that in the current fitness industry there can be a big difference from one personal trainer to the other, in terms of education and experience. Your choice could literally be the difference between wasting your time & money, being shown completely incorrect training methodologies with incorrect & even dangerous form…OR doing things correctly (& safely) which will lead to long term results and a healthy understanding of what it takes to reach your fitness goals. Its not hard to find someone to bark out random exercises and motivating quotes just to get you tired and sweaty, that’s not hard for any personal trainer to do, and its not the right approach for long term results.
You shouldn’t be paying for a cheerleader… you need a professional personal trainer or a coach who knows what they are doing with your body (especially if you spend all day sitting at a desk and have to deal with poor posture, flexibility & mobility issues & niggling aches and pains). Effective training is about matching the right exercises & movements for your body & goals, fixing up any weaknesses, imbalances or movement dysfunctions which are limiting your progress, avoiding exercises which are inappropriate for you (& likely to lead to injury), and learning how to train with correct technique for long term progress & results.
The Fit Stop, located at 240 Inkerman St, St Kilda East, is a personal training and group training facility where people come to get real fitness results and advice, in an honest, down to earth environment. No fads, gimmicks or false promises. Our personal trainers here specialise in helping regular everyday people get fit, strong & functional.
