Jamestown Fitness Center hires trainers with many characteristics. All trainers are skilled and certified. Each has a unique personality and outlook on fitness programming. There are many different methods of reaching goals related to strength, flexibility, leanness, and overall health and fitness. The avenues that a trainer recommends are based on the health history of the particular client and that person’s objectives. All trainers start by obtaining the client’s health history, as well as information about any known injuries or imbalances. The individual’s goals are then discussed in detail, whether it be to achieve strength for a favorite activity, to reach a new level in a competitive sport, to improve lean muscle mass, to improve bone density, or to increase the ability to function and perform daily activities. The trainer designs an appropriate program to meet these goals while always being careful to avoid injuries.
