An Economical Way to Have a Personal Trainer In NYC

by glenn on September 24, 2010

Personal training is not something that has to be done every week, nor does it have to be a long-term commitment. For those people that want to enlist the services of a personal trainer in NYC, but are on a limited budget, there is a way to do it economically and still reap the benefits.

Whether you are just starting an exercise program or are an experienced fitness enthusiast you can find personal trainers NYC to fit your needs and goals. The goal here should be to learn a fitness routine over 5-10 sessions with a personal trainer and then be able to perform this routine going forward on your own. Once you’ve mastered the routine, schedule future training sessions on a monthly basis so that you can meet, go over your progress, and tweak your program where necessary.

You can also apply this same methodology to working with a pilates instructor NYC or a nutritionist.

If you are a little more self-motivated and trying to adhere to a stricter budget, but still get some bang for your buck, you may want to try group fitness classes. These classes can be as little as $10-$20 per class for a series of 8-10 sessions. You can come away from the experience knowing many new exercises that you can incorporate in to your own fitness routine. You may also develop a rapport with a fitness professional who understands what you’re trying to accomplish, thereby gaining some additional advice from them without the expense of private sessions. Group fitness instructors NYC are, in most cases, personal trainers, as well. To become a group fitness instructor most, if not all, certification agencies require the instructor to already be certified as a personal trainer.

The key is to figure out where your interests lie when pursuing a fitness goal. You are less likely to continue on your own with a particular discipline if you don’t enjoy it in the first place. However, if you take the time think about what it is that you would enjoy then you’ve won a major part of the battle to achieve your goal. I have often asked people to close their eyes and visualize how they see themselves achieving their goals. Once they’ve answered that, the path becomes clearer for both the fitness professional and the client.
