Personal Training can be expensive and the number of individuals who can afford it over the long term is finite. Couple this with the fact that very few people undertake a "regular exercise" regimen, for any length of time, contributes to the current and potential increases in U.S. healthcare costs along with an increase in the incidence of morbidity and mortality for "preventable" diseases, e.g. diabetes.
With this in mind, my primary objective is to teach my clients "how to train" rather than be trained. In so doing, clients learn how to become independent/self-directed exercisers. Many people don't realize they have myriad fitness options that are cost effective and can be practiced anywhere at anytime. By teaching them "how to train," clients gain confidence, expertise, and an inexpensive means of improving&maintaining their health, well-being, and independence over the course of their lifetime.
One won't necessarily live longer, but one most assuredly can live better with modest amounts of regular exercise and physical activity.
Ultimately, my role is to facilitate and reinforce those behaviors that, potentially, increase the probability that an individual will exercise regularly as a cost effective means of managing their health in an increasingly expensive healthcare system. America has a dubious relationship with preventative health care, and our "system" is currently incapable of providing unrestricted access and high quality of care for all who seek it. Therefore, it falls to the individual to take responsible and reasonable measures to strive for a quality of life that is best for them and the society of which they are a part.
To that end, I continue to advocate regular exercise and physical activity as a means of "aging successfully," and strive to convey its value to my clients. I advocate multimodal training regimens, and encourage diversity in all physical and cognitive activites in an effort to attain and maintain an adaptive response that, potentially, leads to improved fitness and functionality over the course their existence.
