When it comes to personal training, their's a lot of confusion about what a personal trainer does. A lot of people think that a personal trainer is someone who knows their way around a gym, and an expert on instructing clients on how to use the equipment at a gym. The truth of the matter is a trainer's job goes far beyond knowing their way around a gym, and they are much more than just a glorified motivator. There's a precise science behind it all.
When someone hires a personal trainer, the trainer will develop a customized plan to help a client safely, and effectively achieve their goals. And by doing so, a methodical plan is developed over the course of a couple months to years. Constantly modifying the plan as a client progresses. Whether a client wants to lose weight, build muscle, or achieve health and vitality, no two clients will be treated the same; it puts the "personal" in personal training.
That being said, we know that personal training can be expensive. And it's sometimes hard to schedule a personal training session around your hectic daily life. This is precisely why online personal training is becoming a successful tool (for both the client and the trainer). It opens up freedom to work out on your own time, communicate with your personal trainer on your own time, and it removes the travel expense for a trainer to meet you, making online personal training much more economical.
My Sacred Life makes use of an online app that works with both Android and iPhone for online personal training. From within the app you can track progress, communicate with your trainer, log your meals, and have video instruction for your entire workout routine.
Personal Training for Auto-Immune Sufferers.
If you suffer an auto-immune disease like Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, or suffer Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome or Chronic Fatigue, it's tough to stay in shape and hit the gym when you barely have enough energy to shower and cook dinner after a long, tiring day. You're not lazy. You're body is so busy attacking itself, you don't have any energy left. And unless someone suffers a thyroid condition like yourself, or feels the amount of tiredness you feel, they don't seem to understand. Well I do. As a personal trainer, I can create a custom plan, milder than I would for a normal client, with your chronic fatigue in mind. You see, a personal trainer is taught to get a client to their goal (weight loss, fitness, muscle gain, etc.) as quickly, effectively and safely as possible. This proven method works, and works well when tailored by a certified trainer. But this approach doesn't apply to everyone, especially those with thyroid disorders or auto-immune disease. Together, we can ease into your training program and get you back on your feet. Because when auto-immune attacks, fight back.
