"If you don't make time for your wellness, you'll be forced to make time for your illness." It's a common adage, especially among those in the health and fitness industry, and justly, the logic can't be denied.
However, inspirational quotes alone rarely incite action. So, if you're someone who requires more tangible motivation, support and guidance, hiring a personal trainer can help you meet your individual goals, with a clear path of how to achieve them: through a customized fitness plan.
"Everything our personal trainers are doing in the gym is personalized, which is the biggest difference between downloading an online workout or trying to copy somebody else's fitness program," says Bel Quirce, Gold's Gym NASM-Certified Personal Trainer.
"Our highly-experienced trainers are all certified, many through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), among others, and are trained to establish the most optimized and safest way for you to achieve your goals."
Three benefits of a personal trainer
1. Education: they'll show you the ropes, from correct posture and technique, to learning movements effectively, efficiently, and without injury. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
2. Support: every step of the way, you'll maximize your time at the gym, and receive encouragement and motivation, while being held accountable.
3. Lasting effects: personal training "Built By Gold's" endures beyond your sessions. Build your commitment, build your consistency, and build your community. As you build your path to success, ultimately, you will build your lifestyle.
Free consultation, three-day pass
Your fitness journey begins with a complimentary fitness assessment to learn your history, your unique goals, and body composition. Together with a trainer, who's the best match for you and your needs, you'll create your personalized fitness plan.
"During the month of January, you'll have access to a three-day pass (any location) to get a feel for what makes Gold's Gym different," explains Quirce.
Gold's Gym British Columbia strives to provide the best fitness facilities in B.C. and has earned a reputation of retaining top-tier talent: expert coaches, instructors and personal trainers, who provide extraordinary service, programming, and resources.
The wide range of fitness offerings are best in class, and at the 26,000 square-foot facility in PoCo, they provide circuit TV’s, strength, functional and cardio equipment, powerlifting equipment, group fitness classes (spin, hot yoga, HIIT, Zumba), plus amenities that include the Core Culture Smoothie Bar, ladies-only section, infrared saunas, steam rooms, and more.
"We aim to offer the best quality equipment at our facilities, which is why we work with prestigious equipment brands like Eleiko, Rogue, Technogym and Precor," says Quirce.
"Whatever you're aiming to work on, is something you can do within our gyms; we really pride ourselves on variety."
Although you're on a personal journey, it's also a shared experience. Expect an inclusive, safe and supportive environment full of all kinds of people who are committed to achieving their goals.
"Our Gold's Gym community, particularly in PoCo, is so tight knit and supportive that although we have a large membership base, you're always able to find someone who's there for you and your fitness journey," reveals Quirce.
"A big component of your success is to really enjoy what you're doing. Everything you do inside the gym; makes everything you do outside the gym better."
