We all come to class and love getting our bodies moving and staying motivated by all the awesome Circuit Works trainers, because they’re effective and get the job done. However, if you’re working towards a particular goal it can be beneficial to get some one-on-one time with a personal trainer. The National Academy of Sports Medicine
(NASM) accredits both group instructor certifications and personal training certifications, as they are too distinct qualifications. A group instructor’s training includes tools on teaching a class filled with a range of fitness levels and delivering classes that will get the most out of participants. Effective communication tools and coaching skills are honed as well as insight into exercise science principles.
Most group fitness certifications assume full group of participants are doing the same exercise. As you know, Circuit Works is more unique than that. Our participants do some exercises together as a group and others as individuals. Because of this, our trainers must be certified as Personal Trainers in the group setting. The skills needed to become a personal trainer include being observant to individual needs, a great motivator and having attention to detail. Personal trainers will assess the fitness level of clients and then set and define obtainable goals. They will also improve technique, form and keeping track of progress. Pair up your private personal training sessions with some ongoing classes with your favorite trainer and you will reach your goals faster! Having one-on-one time with a trainer will also give you access to more in depth exercise and nutrition information, aid with minor injuries, and a personalized action plan. The tips and skills you learn in personal training can be applied in the class setting. All of our trainers are nationally certified and have completed the extensive teacher training Circuit Works Certification program. Not only are the personal training sessions offered at great value, but also having the support and additional custom-made workouts just for you, to help you reach your goal, is priceless.
