CSUSB student recreation and fitness center (SRFC) personal trainers are offering a beneficial Q&A to help those workout “I dont knows.”
Students and faculty have the option to hire a personal trainer on campus to improve their health and fitness.
“Personal trainers will assess your goals and help you reach them,” said Katherine Brobst, a student and personal trainer at CSUSB.
Anyone looking to breathe life into their dull and repetitive workouts should consult with a trainer for individualized training programs.
“Expectations and workouts are different for each client, so they should expect evolving routines as goals are met with notable progress,” said Brobst.
With help from CSUSB personal trainers, commitment to health and fitness has never been easier. Personal trainers motivate their clients and prepare them for success.
“A lot of times people come in expecting quick results; to keep them motivated I prefer to focus on the progress they are making.
Small victories are important. For example, increased cardio, heavier weights, increased reps, and speed are important factors that determine success,” said Brobst.
All individuals approach their workouts differently. However, there are certain universal recommendations for anyone looking to optimize their health and fitness.
“I recommend clean eating for anyone, it’s important to do away with prepacked or fast food. Instead, try portion control, lean protein, whole grains and preparing your meals at home, It’s important to have the right nutrition to fuel workouts. If you eat right, you stay fuller longer,” said Brobst.
CSUSB personal trainers have the knowledge and experience to assist all ages and various levels of fitness and personal goals.
“The initial consultation is important for us; it allows trainers to assess the client for preexisting medical conditions or injuries, while simultaneously noting their weak areas,” said Brobst.
Trainers are focused on creating a fun and trustworthy environment for all participants.
“What sets us apart from other personal trainers is the level of trust, unity, and commitment among the personal trainers. I’d like to think that the level of respect and openness we have really shows and resonates with the students and faculty we train,” said Brobst.
Cardio can be fun and refreshing; re-amp your routine with super sets (back to back exercises without rest) and sprint intervals for a quick dose of cardio without the extended hours of training.
“Most trainers here have no problem teaching you how to utilize a machine or answering questions to optimize workouts. We’re a lot friendlier and open than people think,” said Brobst.
CSUSB students and faculty can benefit from personal trainer lessons for as little as $16 for a single session and $22 for a buddy session.
For any more questions and answers with a personal trainer, visit the SRFC hallway on Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s from 5:00p.m. to 6:30p.m. until June 4.
