5 Benefits of Working With a Personal Trainer

Teaching RTS Foundations

Hey there, it’s John Reed from Reed Elite Training. Having traveled the world and immersed myself in the world of fitness, I’ve had the privilege of helping countless individuals transform their lives through a customized exercise regimen. Today, I want to shed light on why working with a personal trainer can make all the difference in your fitness journey. Here are five unparalleled benefits:


  • Personalized Approach Tailored to Your Needs: Every individual is unique. Their body, capabilities, and limitations differ. At Reed Elite Training, we prioritize a tailor-made approach for every client. We factor in injuries, limitations, and other essential considerations. Like Gary, a dedicated individual I had the honor of training. Following a debilitating stroke and back surgery, Gary could barely ascend a flight of stairs. But after two dedicated years, with a program designed specifically for him, he regained his strength and confidence. His journey stands testament to the transformative power of personalized training.


  • In-Depth Understanding of Biomechanics: The human body is a complex mechanism, with each joint and muscle playing a crucial role. Our team at Reed Elite Training delves deep into biomechanics, ensuring we understand your joint mechanics, muscle mechanics, and the right resistance mechanics for you. This isn’t about following a generic set of exercises; it’s about custom-building a program around your body’s specific needs.


  • Safety and Injury Prevention: A personal trainer isn’t just about pushing you to your limits but doing so safely. Leveraging my learnings from world-renowned programs like the Resistance Training Specialist (RTS), we ensure that our exercises are built around you. This approach helps minimize injury risks while optimizing benefits.


  • Accountability and Motivation: Having someone to guide, support, and motivate you can be a game-changer. Your commitment level increases when you have a personal trainer awaiting you, charting your progress, and celebrating your victories with you, be they big or small.


  • Holistic Health and Nutrition Guidance: Exercise is just one piece of the puzzle. At Reed Elite Training, we understand the profound impact of nutrition. Hence, we ensure that every workout is complemented with the right nutrition recommendations, giving you a 360-degree approach to health and fitness.


Now, allow me to share a story that encapsulates the essence of our mission at Reed Elite Training:


When I reflect on my most rewarding client transformations, Gary’s story comes to mind. After a stroke compromised his left side 13 years ago, and back surgery in 2020, Gary was searching for someone he could trust to rebuild his strength.


At our first training session, Gary could hardly climb a flight of stairs without pain and exhaustion. But his determination and spirit inspired me. Over 2 years of training, we celebrate victories large and small – from pushing harder in each exercise session to walking through the grocery store again.


Gary shares, “What I’m happiest with is John meets me where I’m at and helps me improve my compromised side, not just exercise my strong side.”


It’s stories like Gary’s that truly epitomize the personalized approach we offer at Reed Elite Training. Not stopping at generic exercises, but diving into the intricacies of each individual’s needs and abilities to help them regain mobility and independence.


The smile on Gary’s face after climbing those stairs pain-free for the first time – that’s the impact that keeps me passionate about this work.
