Benefits of Personal Training
Our team of personal trainers are highly educated, professionally certified and have the experience and expertise to make your workout more focused and efficient. Our trainers will develop a personalized program based on your current fitness level and your goals. We provide support and encouragement and test your limits as we help you attain your goals. Our trainers will also inject fun into your workout by offering variety and new exercises to your program.
How to Book a Personal Training Session
Due to COVID limitations, we are not currently offering personal training sessions.
New to Fitness?
Our staff can help you start right with a Get Started Session.
This session is the perfect start - a professional personal trainer will help you develop a plan to meet your health and fitness goals. They will discuss what you need, whether it's goal-setting, nutrition, weight management, or conditioning, and take you through the strength and cardio machines in our fitness centres. When you book a consultation, please tell us if you have specific needs (such as post-injury rehab, post-cardiac rehab, pre/post natal training, or training for other chronic or degenerative diseases).
Due to COVID restrictions we are unable to offer Get Started Consultations at this time.
Get a general overview of how to use the equipment in our fitness centres, find out about fitness centre etiquette, and ask us your fitness related questions. Free with a fitness membership or pay a fitness drop-in. Just call the fitness centre you would like to visit:
Due to COVID restrictions we are unable to offer Fitness Centre Orientations at this time.
Why workout with a Personal Trainer?
Our trainers will assess you physically and discuss your fitness goals. Then they will develop a plan which works for YOU, because one plan does not fit all. They will help you achieve your goals, support you and encourage you along the way. They can push you and test your limits (safely), as they may have a better idea of what you are capable of. They can also make your workout more fun by offering a variety of exercises, so you aren't stuck doing the same old thing.
What are the benefits?
A Personal Trainer has the expertise to make your workout more focused and efficient. They will show you how to use equipment correctly and safely, and tell you which exercises you should avoid. They will be your personal cheer squad and motivate you to work harder, and reach your goals sooner.
What qualifications do NVRC Personal Trainers have?
Our staff are highly trained. To become a NVRC Health & Lifestyle Consultant you need to hold a BCRPA Registered Personal Trainer, or CFES (Canadian Fitness Education Services) certification. Many of our consultants also have NSCA (National Strength & Conditioning Association) Certified Personal Trainer or Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist certifications. A large number of them also have degrees in Kinesiology, Physical Education or Human Kinetics.
How many sessions do I need?
That depends on your goals and your budget. Book a Get Started Consultation with one of our Health & Lifestyle Consultants and after assessing your goals and expectations, they will discuss your options. Are you good at following a plan? Maybe once a month is all you need. Do you need accountability and someone to constantly push you? The once or twice a week may be your best option!
