1:1 Personal Training

ClearCut ORTHO’s individual training program focuses on helping you live an active life free from injury, pain, and movement restrictions. Our staff works one on one with you to develop an individualized training program to meet your needs. Whether you are wanting to focus on learning better technique, performance training for sport, injury prevention, olympic lifts, or just general toning and strengthening, we can tailor a plan specific to you.

The specifics of each plan are heavily influenced by the latest science revolving true strength adaptations, functional movements, adequate recovery, periodization, and overall well-being. Sometimes a client will need to focus on areas of weakness to build a foundation of strength prior to jumping into their specific goals. Once proper movement patterns are achieved, you and your trainer will then focus on working towards the goals that you identified during your initial consultation.

What can a personal trainer do for me?

A personal trainer can assist in many ways, including:

  • Customized programming- No cookie cutting here. A knowledgeable personal trainer will create a customized exercise program for you, designed to help you reach your unique health and fitness goals. A trainer will also take into account special considerations (e.g. existing medical condition, pregnancy, post-rehabilitation, medications taken, etc) when creating a program exclusively for you.
  • Correct technique- When exercising, safety is the number one priority. A personal trainer will teach you the proper mechanics of each exercise and will ensure that you are performing each with correct form, thus maximizing the efficiency of your workouts.
  • Enhance motivation- Who wouldn’t like a little extra motivation? Having a scheduled session with a trainer promotes accountability on your part, and can assist in developing adherence in the long run to making exercise a regular part of your routine. In addition to the outside motivation, a personal trainer can also help you develop a more positive outlook on exercise by exploring options for making exercise more enjoyable, reviewing short-term progress towards goals, and assessing feeling- and mood-state changes related to exercise, thereby improving self-confidence and self-motivation.
  • Prevent Cognitive Decline- Believe it or not, exercising can be a great technique to enhance function cognitive and physical function in patients with conditions like Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, and early-onset dementia. There is a vast amount of research around specific personal training techniques for each of these conditions, and many more. Many times these clients will start with a round of physical therapy and then transition into a routine at our wellness center with a personal trainer.

What can I expect during my initial training session?

During your initial meeting working with a personal trainer, he or she will begin the process of getting to know you. It is this information along with your trainer’s expertise and experience that will assist them in developing a customized program for you. Depending on your fitness goals, your trainer may administer a variety of assessments during the initial session or may reserve some assessments until a point in your program that is more appropriate. The assessments that are ultimately selected are done so in line with your fitness goals and are used to establish a baseline for progress comparison further down the road. Assessments are also used to gauge your current level of fitness, which can assist the trainer in developing your customized program (in terms of selecting proper exercise intensity, appropriate weight for strength training exercises, etc) and meeting your health and fitness needs. Examples of assessments that may be conducted include body composition assessments, movement screens, and postural assessments.

How many times a week do I have to meet with a trainer?

Just like the program itself, how many times you meet with a trainer is a very individualized decision that depends on a variety of factors, including your fitness goals and your motivation level. Keep in mind that the ultimate goal of a quality personal trainer is to promote self-efficacy within the client, enabling them to take ownership of their exercise experience. It is for this reason that a good trainer will seek to truly educate clients (about things such as proper form, appropriate intensity, ways to stay motivated, ways to progress, etc) as opposed to just simply putting clients through a workout without having them understand the rationale as to why certain exercises were selected, and how the developed program relates back to their health and fitness goals.
