Personal Trainer’s name:  Ryan Anderson

When did you first start working with your Personal Trainer?

April 2010

What led to your decision to use a Personal Trainer?

I was having a difficult time reaching my goals on my own.  I knew the basics, but I needed someone to teach me more, teach me how to reach my goals faster and properly.

How would you describe your experience with your Personal Trainer?

I have had a great experience working with Ryan.  He keeps me on my toes and continues to push me.  Which is exactly what I requested when I first started working with Ryan.

What did you find most surprising about working with a Personal Trainer?

The diversity! When I worked out on my own I had my set routine and that was that.  I can’t believe how much I’ve learned, all the different types of exercises for one muscle groups!  I thought I was a routine person when it came to working out, but I love to switch it up and I think that has been a major factor in reaching my goals.

What do you find most valuable about working with a Personal Trainer?

Without a question it’s the accountability. It’s very easy for me to skip my workout or to fall into bad habits, especially on those mornings following a night with the kids.  Ever since working with Ryan I have stayed committed and continue working hard,  if I wasn’t working with Ryan I know I would have fallen off the track months ago, but now with his help I have reached and surpassed my goal of reaching pre-pregnancy weight!
