Personal Trainers - The Difference of a Regular Trainer VS Strength Trainer

Hello Everyone.. Just like to start with this New website with something that needs to be addressed Okay, In general a personal trainer is sort of a strength trainer. But really a basic one.

You could view the analogy of an engine, where all engines are built to deliver power and torque, some are build to accomplish the best fuel economy, some for max speed and high RPMs, and others such as diesel engines are built for torque and pulling power.

Would you hire a regular mechanic to repair your diesel engine?

Maybe...but the best option is to find and hire a specific diesel mechanic to perform the maintenance or repairs on your specific engine.

Point is, our physical goals should be tailored to trainers who are experienced and specialize in achieving similar goals.

A bodybuilder wouldn't hire a triathlete coach to help him for a competition.

If your desire is to build complete core strength and basically get prepared to take on a wide range of general physical activities from climbing trees, biking, hiking, swimming and simply enjoy a healthy lifestyle...find a strength trainer

Coach Jason Depaoli

What Is a Strength Trainer?

Basically someone who trains you with a focus on core strength, flexibility, overall good health and nutrition. Where a "personal trainer" is like a general mechanic for most vehicles, a strength trainer focuses on compound exercises that build endurance, stability, and...well...strength!

A strength trainer most likely encourages resistance training with elastic bands, bosu balls, free-weights, and even incorporate or recommend yoga to help your overall strength.

Not All Trainers Are Created Equal.

Whats the difference between experience and education? Big.

You could have a recent graduate or certified strength trainer who has very little or no actual experience with strength training. This isn't such a bad thing, but there is most likely much that they don't know.

In my opinion its better to have a strength trainer with experience rather than an education. The ultimate option is to have a strength trainer who is both experienced and certified.

Any way you chose, however is an awesome way to start your fitness routine. Strength training is a great way to get in the best shape of your life. Toning, losing weight, and building incredible strength while keeping overall mass and bulk to a minimum.

You'll also find the training style to be faster paced, lower or no rest periods between sets. In the case of "strength," the style of workouts are designed to increase you cardiovascular, flexibility, mobility, speed, core and muscle strength. Where as general working out usually is focused on increasing strength and size of certain muscle groups.

This type of training is surly for anyone of any physical level who is interested. You'll quickly learn that you'll be pushed hard, quite possibly doing exercises never imagined, but your progress will move very quickly!
