I’d never used a personal trainer before. But, faced with the big milestone of turning 60, I decided to give it a try. I met Alex Shaw for a complimentary discussion when I joined the gym. We talked about my goals and challenges and I felt comfortable talking with Alex. My goal was to set a course for a long, healthy life in my golden years, and get ready for a few pool parties in the summer. My challenge has been basically a stagnant approach to working out – hit the gym, same routine, same weight, same results. My conversation with Alex and my comfort level with him convinced me to take the leap.
For me, working with Alex has been a great experience with real results. Alex is positive and motivating. He creates workout plans that are results oriented and challenging – increasing the weight and reps much more than I ever would have on my own, and varying the workout plans to change things up and keep them interesting. Alex clearly explains the right form to maximize benefits and avoid injury. And, he measures results. For example, in one series of workouts we increased the total weight I was lifting in a series of reps by 60%.
Now I feel stronger, have more energy, and enjoy keeping up with my workouts. I’m confident that I’m on the right path for my health and well being. Plus, my girlfriend complemented me on my progress, and we’ve had fun at the pool parties. That’s a nice reward and a motivator.
Thank you, Alex!
