What to Expect During Your First Personal Training Session

Here at Ellis Athletic Center in Newtown Square, we offer all of our members one free hour of personal training. This allows them to get to know our trainers, discover a workout that can help them with their goals, and learn more about how personal training can benefit their workout on a daily basis. But if you’ve never worked with a personal trainer before, signing up for that first session can be a little intimidating. We understand that! That’s why every member of our team is always happy to answer your questions before your session so you feel comfortable and get the most out of your complimentary assessment.

We’ve put together this guide to tell you more about what you can expect during your first session. If you still have questions after you’ve read this, please feel free to give us a call or fill out the form on our website and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.

What Happens During Your Complimentary Assessment?

We start by talking about your goals.

This is an important step in the personal training process! That’s because personal training offers you a chance to create an exercise plan that’s tailored to help you meet your goals, so your trainer needs to know what they are. Maybe you want to lose weight, build muscle tone, or train for a marathon. Whatever it is, be honest with your personal trainer and tell them what’s bringing you to the gym.

Your trainer will evaluate your current physical abilities.

Next, your personal trainer will need to determine where you are at with your physical abilities right now. That will give them a better idea of what you’ll need to do to get to your goals. They might ask you do to a series of strength exercises, flexibility tests, or cardio endurance.

You’ll receive an individualized plan that will help you move towards your fitness goals.

Finally, your personal trainer will create a personalized plan that will help you get from where you are to where you want to be. That might include cardio and strength training as well as nutritional goals that you can meet outside of the gym. If you want on-going support, you can sign up for more personal training sessions to help you stay on track and motivated! Your trainer can create a training package that meets your needs.
