Variety is the spice of life.
This is particularly true when it comes to exercise. Regardless of whether you are training for a movie role, triathlon or wedding, to recover from an illness, or to return to your lifelong fitness journey, it’s important to keep the body guessing. So many different ways exist to work out a single muscle group. In fact it’s good for your muscles to challenge them in different ways. A knowledgeable personal trainer will help ensure that you don’t get into a workout rut.
Why hire a personal trainer?
Safety is number one. A good personal trainer will: demonstrate an exercise for you as many times as you need; guide your form; determine the weight, resistance level and number of repetitions that are ideal for you so that you challenge yourself; provide constant feedback; and answer any questions you may have about your workout and about fitness and nutrition in general.
Your time. A good personal trainer will produce results, by: making the most of your time; maximizing the benefits of each and every workout session; and providing exercise and nutrition plans for when you are on your own, unable to get to the gym or having a busy week.

A pleasure to work with, always cheerful and always encouraging.I recently completed 24 personal training sessions with trainer Mansur Mendizabal and want to tell you what a great job he does. I was reticent about trying personal training based on past experiences and also my perception that it probably just wasn't for me. However, my mind was changed after my new member free session with Mansur. Can't say enough good things about him. But I will try.
"First we talked about what I was looking for from PT. Then he told me about his philosophy of training. Then we got started. The combination of metabolic training, whole body exercises and a wide variety of exercises emphasizing not only strength and endurance, but balance and coordination, kept me interested, motivated, and feeling better every day. This was a real confidence builder for me. Mansur had me doing exercises I would never have attempted on my own. We rarely did the same exercise twice. Every day was something new. My body responded, my legs have never been so strong or my endurance so great. I noticed the changes throughout the day at work and at home, changes in stamina, flexibility and mobility. I can't wait to get started with him again.
"He's a talented guy, a pleasure to work with, always cheerful and always encouraging. I would recommend him to anybody who is looking for a creative approach to personal training. I'm sure you all appreciate him, but I want to let you know how much I appreciate everything he has done for me.
