Though CrossFit training is typically delivered in a group setting, many beginners and even seasoned veterans begin to wonder is personal training for me?

Carl Marella, NCSF-Certified Personal Trainer and CrossFit Level 1 Coach at CrossFit Des Plaines shares some of the benefits of working with him in a personal training session:

♦ Personal training is one of the greatest tools to help you advance your physical fitness, and specifically, in CrossFit. CrossFit incorporates several aspects of fitness: strength, speed, power, flexibility, coordination–just to name a few. Personal training allows a tailored program to address areas of most need for an individual.

♦ It keeps you accountable. There is one, designated coach, who is keeping you to your commitment of improving your fitness. A set time, place, and regularly scheduled sessions to follow provides the structure and accountability for your goals.

♦ The 1:1 attention and coaching allows for increased skill development. There’s no surrounding distractions or other people that are taking the coach’s attention away from the personalized program and movement patterns in the session.

One of Carl’s clients, Chris T., shares that over the last year and a half, he went from being barely able to walk from his car to the door without being out of breath, to now running one mile straight in less than ten minutes. Commitment to the process is key!

April L., another personal training client shares that working with Carl has improved her ability to have increased awareness of the body’s mechanics with complex movements. She’s also developed an increased strength in her upper body muscle groups, and most of all, her confidence!
