1. Motivation & Support

Most of us exert ourselves far more in the presence of others. Having an Active Monash Personal Trainer by your side will inspire you to push yourself beyond your comfort zone and try new exercises. They will provide clear advice on how to reach your goals while offering a great base of support throughout your journey. 

2. Accountability  

Maintaining a consistent exercise and healthy eating regime can be difficult on your own. Our Personal Trainers will hold you accountable for your actions. It is much easier to show up when you have a weekly appointment booked in.

3. Education

Health and fitness advice is readily available on the internet. Advertisements on the radio and television spruik about the next best fat blasting diet or workout regime. In addition, there are a myriad of health and fitness social media accounts, bloggers and you tubers broadcasting their tips and recommendations daily. It is no wonder you are confused about what to do to reach your goals. Luckily, our Personal Trainers offer a wealth of knowledge from their professional education and experience within the industry. They will remove the guesswork, allowing you to focus on accomplishing your goals.

4. Confidence

It is normal to feel intimidated if you are new to the gym environment. Our Trainers will allow you to become confident with how to perform exercises, use machines and navigate the facility. After a few sessions, you will feel ready to tackle the weight room on your own!

5. Correct Technique

Our Trainers will ensure you are performing each exercise with the correct technique, limiting your risk of injury. Performing the correct technique allows you to engage the essential muscles contributing to the movement, therefore intensifying your workouts and propelling you closer towards your goals.

6. Individual Attention

Everyone is unique. Your body mechanics, experience, goals, fitness level, likes and dislikes will allow your Trainer to create a plan, which is specific to your needs. With a tailored program, you are more likely to maintain the habit and see results.

7. Sport-specific Training

If you play a sport, Personal Training is a great addition to your current training regime. Our Personal Trainers can focus on helping you perfect the specific skills within your sport to improve performance. For example, if you play golf, a Personal Trainer can design sessions around strengthening the key muscle groups involved in your golf swing. If you want to run your first 5k, our Trainers can work with you to improve your endurance and strength specific to running. Whatever sport you are involved in, our Trainers can help.

8. Training with Medical Conditions

Exercise is beneficial for preventing or managing many common chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. However, exercising with a medical condition requires additional precautions. Our knowledgeable Trainers have experience working with clients with chronic conditions and can design a program that ensures your safety and provides a positive exercise experience.

9. Ageing Gracefully

Our bodies change as we age. Perhaps the exercises you used to do no longer work with your body, or maybe you’ve stopped seeing results. Our Trainers can help you adjust or adapt your program as you age, which will allow you to maintain functionality and strength.

10. Enjoyment

Exercise can be fun! Simply working with a trainer who you like and respect can be enough to provide you with more gratification from your workouts.
