The Benefits Of A Personal Trainer

Overcome Your Obstacles, Achieve Your Fitness Goals, And Improve Your Overall Health And Well-Being!

Motivation

The truth is, self-motivation cannot be relied upon as a long-term strategy. There will be days when you simply don’t feel like working out. The difference between those who achieve their goals and those who don’t, are the ones who take action despite not feeling like it. Having Coach Brian in your corner to push you, provide encouragement, and not let you let yourself down will give you the boost you need to keep going on those days when you’re not feeling motivated on your own!

Accountability

Accountability goes hand-in-hand with motivation. When you workout on your own, it’s easy to put things off since there’s no one to hold you to it. Coach Brian won’t let that happen. Investing in yourself, hiring a coach, and committing to a schedule greatly increases your chances of reaching your fitness goals. With Coach Brian you are never alone on your fitness journey, as he creates an unwavering support system, making himself available to you anytime via phone, text, email, and video calls.

Personalized Plan

When it comes to fitness, no two people are the same. Your unique body mechanics, experience, goals, fitness level, injury history, health conditions, schedule, and food preferences allow Coach Brian to create a customized plan that is specific to your individual needs and lifestyle. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. This is YOUR program, and with a program that is designed specifically for you, you are far more likely to stick with it and achieve your goals.

Education

What good is a fitness program if you don't know why you are doing what you are doing in the first place? Coach Brian will educate you every step of the way with both your training and your nutrition. Among other things you will learn proper form for each exercise in order to maximize effectiveness and avoid injury, how to structure your workouts, how to eat for your goals, and ultimately, how to get results!

Confidence

The gym can be intimidating. Working with Coach Brian either at home or at a private studio near you will allow you to become confident with how to perform exercises correctly whether using dumbbells, barbells, or machines. After a few weeks, you will be ready to tackle the weight room on your own. In addition, as you make progress, lose weight, and get stronger, you will feel better, have more energy, and more self-confidence outside of the gym.

Roadmap To Success

Let’s face it, fitness can be confusing. There is a lot of conflicting misinformation in the media and on the internet. Coach Brian will help you to cut through the nonsense and get crystal clear on exactly what you want to accomplish and why. Together you will create a realistic roadmap to achieving your short-term and long-term goals with specific dates and progress tracking tools to keep you moving in the right direction.

Doreen Levy

"I selected Brian Donovan as my coach because he holds two of the most advanced personal training certifications and has a great, low-key but encouraging, demeanor. During the time I have worked with Brian, I have reached and exceeded my weight loss, body fat, and flexibility goals. Every workout with him has been customized to my unique fitness goals and challenges. I was born with back problems and Brian is great about adapting the exercises for my specific needs. I’ve been working with him for over two years and have never had an injury. In addition, Brian is great about keeping up with the latest fitness and nutrition news and studies and always shares helpful tips for me to incorporate into my daily routine. I highly recommend Brian for anyone seeking a trainer. Whatever your needs and goals, he will develop a program for you that WORKS, and you’ll have fun along the way because he has a great personality."

"Over the last year and a half I’ve trained with Brian on a regular basis. Brian loves fitness and knows how to make every workout different and challenging. He is constantly switching things up and keeping it interesting. Brian is very skilled and knowledgeable, but what I like about Brian is that he is also very down to earth and fun. This is why we have also 'clicked' and become friends outside of our days of training. I HIGHLY recommend Brian for anyone looking for strong nutritional guidance, a great fitness program, and just a darn solid individual to train them! There was a reason he was VOTED BEST OF CHICAGO!"

"I've been working out with Brian for over 6 years now and am very happy with the experience and my results. The sessions are customized to me and my fitness goals - it is not one size fits all! Brian has an easy-going style with just the right amount of push to keep you going and motivated. He is very approachable, positive and knowledgeable, and I really appreciate his professionalism and good humor. It's so exciting to be able to do things I never thought I could do and to gain the confidence to try whatever physical challenge Brian comes up with next!"
