How does Personal Training Work?
Getting started with Personal training at Kinetic Evolution is a simple three-step process…
Step 1. Book a Free Consultation to Discuss Goals and Tour Facilities
We invite all prospective clients into our facility for a complementary 60-minute consultation. Performing an in-person meeting allows both client and trainer the opportunity to evaluate if the relationship is a good fit.
Our first meeting is focused on information gathering, with no exercise required during the initial consultation. Our objective is to thoroughly understand the client’s story, current situation, and future goals, then to put forth our professional recommendation as to the best possible solution. During this process we consider how all of our resources could assist the client to achieve their goals (training, massage, chiropractic care, nutrition) and take into account all potential variables (schedule & finances) and roadblocks (lack of equipment).
Step 2. Perform a Baseline Fitness Test or Therapy Assessment
Once a client makes the decision to start their training journey with Kinetic Evolution our first course of action is a baseline test. If acute injury or chronic pain are a major concern, then we start with a therapeutic assessment to screen for movement asymmetry or dysfunction. At this stage, first phase corrective exercise takes priority to build a stable foundation prior to initiating a vigorous training program.
If a client is relatively injury free, then we perform a customized fitness test based on their training experience and individual goals. Acquiring baseline testing numbers gives necessary feedback to help to create the comprehensive training program and provide data to compare to for future testing sessions.
Step 3. Receive a Customized Program & Professional Coaching
After completing baseline testing, a training program is developed for each unique client. The program encompasses sessions performed both at Kinetic Evolution and at the client’s home or secondary gym facility. Frequency of visitation is dependent on all factors discussed in Step 1, but the right amount of in-person coaching is essential to provide accountability, deliver instruction and feedback, and enhance motivation.
Our long-term goal at Kinetic Evolution is to educate the client to a level of competence where they do not need weekly training sessions, only monthly check-ups. Reaching a high level of independence within clients builds confidence and they will not only reach fitness goals but maintain them on a long-term basis.
What Are Your Certifications/Qualifications?
When looking for a great fit with Personal Training it is important to put in the homework to find the right match for your unique rehab needs and fitness goals. One key area of importance to a large majority of clients is the possession of a high level education and certification. Appropriate qualification, certification, and continuing education demonstrate a standard of schooling and instruction that allow clients to feel that they are with a professional who is knowledgable and competent.
At Kinetic Evolution, our training decisions and nutritional advice are evidence-based, and we use a body of literature as support. We do not promote, and are not interested, in fads or gimmicks.
Our coaches have access to constant mentorship, business coaching, and individualized development to promote mastery of their craft.
Here is a list of several of our qualifications/certifications:
While holding a high level of qualification/certification is certainly important, it does not always speak to coaching expertise or training skillset. An additional step in researching the right fit would be to read several coach testimonials and/or set up a phone conversation with 1-2 client references. Having an in-depth Q&A with previous clients can further enlighten if the potential training relationship is a good one.
