Top 6 Benefits of Hiring a Personal Trainer

Here are just a few reviews from my clients:

I needed a trainer to get ready for my wedding. With Nick’s help, I lost 40 pounds in a year. Nick isn’t an average trainer. He’s incredibly knowledgeable on the body and what it needs.

He builds you up into the workouts in a way where you’re working hard, but not overdoing it. He tailors the workouts to fit the needs of your body specifically. He is as much into the health of the mind as he is the physical health.

He taught me breathing techniques, meditation, and how to alter my mindset when it came to my relationship with food and exercise. He’s encouraging and gives you the confidence to be your best self. He changed my life and I can’t thank him enough.–Elizabeth Hilgerson

Nick is an outstanding professional and personal trainer. I had no experience working out and no idea where to start. I tried to work out on my own before but was doing exercises that were too difficult for my physical condition and I didn’t have confidence that I was doing it correctly so I always gave up.

He did an assessment to know exactly what condition my body was in and developed a custom fitness plan to help me get going. His understanding of biology and movement is evident. He was great about instructing and motivating me, but also educating me along the way.

I worked with him for 3 months and learned how to keep evolving my routine to continually, but gradually, challenge myself. With Nick’s help I have become one of those annoying people that love morning workouts to kick start my day.

At 50 years old I feel healthier and stronger than I have in 25 years. I highly recommend working with him no matter what your current physical condition is.

He has the genuine interest and knowledge to help you develop healthy habits and achieve your goals. I’m grateful I found him. Thank you, Nick!!!–Tammy Scarpaci

I discovered Nick through a friend who had been working with him for a while, and I could see the positive results, so it inspired me to give him a call. Nick is not a one-size-fits-all trainer.

What I really like is that he took the time to learn what my fitness goals were before we ever started the first exercise. His diagnostic and prescriptive approach identified the muscle groups in my body that needed strengthening.

The result is that my running form has improved significantly, which was one of my goals. Nick is extremely well-educated as to the body and spirit, and understands that living well involves more than just a few exercises, it involves a broad perspective. —Melinda Walsh

Top 5 Things You Need to Know Before Hiring a Personal Trainer in Baton Rouge

Looking to hire a personal trainer in Baton Rouge? Here are the top 5 things I think you should know based on my experience as a personal trainer in Baton Rouge since 1998.

1. There are no barriers to entry in the field of personal training.

Anyone can print some business cards and call themselves a personal trainer. There is no legal definition. No state licensing to become a personal trainer. No minimal education required to become a personal trainer.

The person who cuts your hair or arranges your flowers has to jump through more educational and licensing hoops than a personal trainer does.

2. Certified Personal Trainer means absolutely nothing.

There is no legal definition for “certified personal trainer”. I can certify my dog as a personal trainer. Actually, I just spent 10 minutes taking an online test with the International Fitness Association and now my dog is a certified personal trainer if I send them some money.

3. Experience is the best indicator of a quality personal trainer.

Because of the low barrier to entry in the field of personal training, there is a very short average career span. The market is swamped and it weeds out the people who don’t have a strong passion to make personal training a career. I’ve been a personal trainer in Baton Rouge since 1998.

4. A strong desire to help people improve is a key quality of a of great trainer.

Not every super-fit person makes a great trainer. The passion for fitness has to be coupled with strong desire to help other people reach their potential.

How can you tell if a trainer has this desire?

In the modern information age, anyone can share expertise freely with the world through blogs and YouTube channels. This site has many blog posts and instructional videos I’ve produced for that purpose alone.

Use the search function to find info and instruction on any fitness topic.

This desire is what drives a great trainer to develop deep expertise.

5. Expertise in health and fitness is really important.

Certification in personal training doesn’t ensure competence, much less excellence or expertise. So how do you know if a trainer knows what they’re doing?

Search the internet. Watch their videos and read their blog posts. Can they effectively communicate their information?

Also, if you’re seriously considering using personal training to help you achieve your health and fitness goals, then contact a trainer for an initial consultation.
