What is In-Home Personal Training and Why You Need It

Everyone knows what a personal trainer is, right? Someone who has been professionally trained and educated to help and train others who want to increase their fitness level and live a healthier lifestyle. But when many people think about working with a personal trainer, they imagine going into a gym or fitness center, working with the equipment there, and being surrounded by other people working toward their goals.

There are various reasons why people continue to put off working with a personal trainer, and possibly one of the most common reasons is that they are nervous or intimidated working out in front of others or in an environment where they may feel judged. At Water and Rock Studio, if you want to experience the benefits of working with a personal trainer, we have several options that make it as convenient and judgment-free as possible. We offer the typical in-studio option, as well as in-home and online sessions! Water and Rock Studio also has two separate locations in Burlington, Vermont and Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Both locations offer the same great benefits and staff who are passionate about fitness and helping clients achieve their goals!

If you’re ready to start making a change in your fitness routine, or want help getting a routine started, the trainers at Water and Rock Studio are here to help! Here are some of the biggest benefits of in-home and online personal training sessions.

What is In-Home and Online Personal Training?

Just as it sounds, in-home personal training is working with a professional trainer in your home instead of having to go to the gym! We’ll come to your home, when it fits with your schedule, and we’ll get in the same great workouts that you can expect at the gym. You can also enjoy online personal training in the comfort of your own home, just with the use of a live video device, whether it’s Facetime, Skype, or another software.

Why Do You Need It?

It’s Comfortable

Typically, working out is anything but comfortable — it’s hard work, it hurts, and you want it to be over as quickly as possible. But this is a different kind of comfortable, the comfort that comes from knowing you can be yourself and struggle through planks and lunges without feeling like people are watching. Our personal trainers will still push you to work harder, to do one more push-up, or to get one more set of leg extensions, but you won’t need to worry about anyone else while you’re doing it.

You Can Wear What You Want!

Ok, so you can’t wear whatever you want, but if you want to work out in your pajamas because the only time you have in your day is right when you wake up, that’s fine! The weather in both Burlington and Philadelphia can get pretty extreme in the winter, so going to the gym means bundling up and having to change when you get there. With online or in-home personal training, all you have to do is answer the door! Overall, we want to help you live a healthier, happier life! We don’t care about making an impression in the latest gym attire.

Same Great Workouts

A common misconception about working with a personal trainer is that it’s only possible at the gym, because that’s where the equipment is. And because many people don’t have weights, a treadmill, or other supplies at home, they think they can’t get the benefits of a personal trainer. But just because we can’t bring entire weight lifting systems or stationary bikes to your home, doesn’t mean you won’t get a killer workout. In fact, exercises that involve lifting your body weight are some of the best workouts! We can also work on stretching, get in some yoga sequences, or a variety of other exercises.

It’s More Than a Workout

At Water and Rock Studio, when you sign up to work with a personal trainer, it’s so much more than just lifting weights and doing push-ups — and that’s because increasing your fitness level and being healthier involves more than just exercising! Along with a great workout, we can help you plan your means for the week, take a look at the food you have in your fridge, and talk about your goals for the coming weeks and months. Personal fitness and health is a long-term goal which is made up of smaller baby steps, and we can help guide you through your journey, no matter where you are.

What You Can Expect

We strive to be so much more than just a gym. When you sign up with us, we will create a personalized plan that has your unique strengths and weaknesses in mind. Whether you choose online, in-home, or in-studio sessions, you can choose a focus area or a combination of:

  • Fitness sessions
