Why should you consider hiring a personal trainer?  These are the top 5 reasons.
1.Knowledge:
Many clients tell me that they want to get in shape, but don’t know what to do or how to start.  They may join a gym and do the elliptical for hours on end and get some results. However, navigating a huge floor of equipment could be overwhelming. A good trainer will create a clear plan for you based on what YOU want to achieve.
Let’s be honest.  We can DIY only so much.  Call a professional if you’ve hit the wall of success. Sometimes a fresh set of eyes will
set your progress in the right direction.

2.Motivation :
Not every client has the motivation and self-discipline to keep  up a workout schedule that creates results.  A good trainer will know how to keep you moving in the right direction.  It’s okay to admit that you can’t stay consistent without the motivation of a trainer.  Every client is different.  Knowing yourself is a giant step in reaching your goals.

3.Accountability:
Setting your workouts up as appointments means someone expects you to attend your workout session.  Being accountable to a trainer is one of the main reasons many of our clients attend Sleek Body. Your workout sessions are as important as your other appointments.  We miss you when you don’t attend.

4.Individualized Results
What are you training for?  Hiring a trainer for bridal fitness is as specific as hiring a trainer to train you for a boxing match.  Every training scenario is different.  There are variables to consider such as  time lines,  how often you can train, nutritional requirements, and more.  A good trainer will be able to develop a specialized program that works with the clients goals.
What results do you want? Many clients come to Sleek Body in preparation for an event such as a wedding, reunion, or vacation.  Other clients simply want to get in shape. However, most clients have a vision of what they want their finished body to look like.  A good trainer will be able to use different training techniques to produce the results their client is looking for. For example:  If you are interested in sleeking out without bulk, that workout is going to be specific.  There are many exercises that work for different results, but there are also exercises that are counter-productive to  specific looks..  A good trainer will show you what to do and also what not to do.

Generic workouts produce generic results

5.Breaking/stopping plateaus:  Studies show that fitness seekers get results for the first six weeks of their programs, then plateau or stop seeing results.  A good trainer will know how to help you break plateaus, or avoid them as much as possible.

Should YOU hire a trainer? 
  One of our clients had been a gym member for several years and after starting Sleek, finally lost those last ten pounds she’d been fighting with. She walks with a bounce in her step, she said she feels 10 years younger and feels her stress levels have gone down.
She said it was the best decision she has made.  You can do it!!  

What kind of training is available?
My studio offers Private personal training, small group (couples or duets) and group personal training.
Group personal training is our most popular because our clients receive the services my privates do with meal plans
and unlimited workouts at a fraction of the cost.  If you are not in ST. Louis, MO  I can help you with online training.
