Why do I need a Personal Trainer or Coach?
There are many reasons why people choose to hire a personal trainer:
- Expertise - Education and instruction are essential to creating good habits that maximize each and every workout. Without the knowledge of proper form and function, people not only see little results, they risk injury to themselves. A good trainer is certified and can show you the safest and most effective ways to reach your fitness goals.
- Goal Setting – A trainer can assess your current physique, lifestyle and fitness level to present a concrete and attainable plan designed specifically for you. We don’t use national averages to guess where you can and should be. Your goals are developed for you and we’ll make assessments along the way to keep you on track.
- Motivation - Individuals choose to work with a personal trainer or coach because alone they fall short of being able to push themselves. Consistent motivation and encouragement empower people to reach their goals.
- Success - Whether you’re training for your first 5k road race, a bike ride for charity or you're just looking to improve your overall health and wellbeing, a dedicated trainer will help you get there. Here at Coach Lou Cook, we are confident that our trainers and coaches have the experience and situational knowledge to be able to motivate, instruct and lead you on the journey to a great new you.
Can a trainer help me evaluate my eating habits and make knowledgeable recommendations regarding nutrition?
Yes. As part of any training package here at Coach Lou Cook your diet and nutrition will be evaluated and monitored for the duration of your membership. A healthy diet is paramount to reaching your goals and we will help educate you on the foods that fuel and nourish your body.
Do I need a gym membership?
No, a separate gym membership is not required. However it may be beneficial for you to supplement your training with at-home conditioning or visits to a gym so that you may apply the knowledge given to you by your trainer.
Do I need fitness equipment at home?
Not necessarily. We will evaluate any equipment you currently own and make recommendations for additional equipment that would fit your needs now and into the future.
How much will this cost?
Pricing is determined by your needs and your location. An initial discussion with a coach regarding your goals will help us to determine the right plan for you.
