What does personal training include?

Personal training is all about tailoring your fitness journey to your unique goals and needs. When you embark on a personal training journey, you’re in for a well-rounded experience that covers a wide spectrum of fitness aspects.

At its core, personal training involves working closely with a certified fitness professional who designs custom workouts tailored to your fitness level, goals, and preferences. You’ll receive expert guidance on exercises that target various muscle groups, boost cardiovascular health, and improve flexibility.

Nutritional guidance is a key component too, as your trainer helps you make informed choices about what you eat to support your fitness goals. They’ll provide insights into portion control, meal timing, and the right balance of nutrients.

Your personal trainer will keep a watchful eye on your progress, adjusting your routines as you grow stronger and more capable. They’ll also ensure you’re using proper form to prevent injuries and get the most out of each exercise.

But it’s not just about physical aspects. Personal training often involves motivation and accountability. Your trainer becomes your cheerleader, helping you stay focused and committed even on challenging days.

From weight loss to muscle gain, flexibility to overall fitness, personal training covers a wide array of objectives. It can include anything from bodyweight exercises and weightlifting to yoga and high-intensity interval training, depending on your goals and preferences.

Ultimately, personal training is a holistic experience that empowers you to take charge of your health journey. With a dedicated trainer by your side, you’ll find the guidance, support, and expertise you need to reach your fitness aspirations and lead a healthier, more active life.

Where do personal training sessions occur?

Sessions occur at our gym, Lloyd Athletic Club, located in inner Northeast Portland, Oregon. We are right next to the Lloyd Center Mall. We do not offer in-home training.

One of the benefits of hiring a trainer and working out at our gym is that you DO NOT need to pay for a gym membership. As long as you’re doing personal training, you get to use all of the equipment and gym amenities for free.

Personal training for muscle building

Personal training for muscle building is a strategic approach toward achieving a stronger and more defined physique. Through tailored workouts and expert guidance, you’ll embark on a transformative process that goes beyond lifting weights.

For instance, take one of our clients, John, a 45-year-old fitness enthusiast in Portland. His personal trainer crafted a progressive weightlifting regimen that focused on compound movements like squats, deadlifts, and bench presses. Over six months of consistent training, John not only gained significant muscle mass but also improved his overall strength and posture.

Similarly, consider Sarah, a 29-year-old looking to build muscle for a bodybuilding competition. Her personal trainer devised a training plan alternating between hypertrophy-focused phases and strength-focused phases. Combined with a personalized nutrition strategy, Sarah gained lean muscle while minimizing fat gain, leading her to a successful competition debut.

If your main goal is to build muscle, we can help. Just let your personal trainer know, so your plan can be customized to meet that goal.

Does personal training help with weight loss?

Undoubtedly – yes. But we don’t do it alone, and your participation is also a key component in how quickly you will reach your weight-loss goals. Our Personal Trainers understand the science behind metabolism, exercise and nutrition. You will be able to lean on their expertise to keep you focused and motivated.

According to a study conducted by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), individuals who engaged in personal training sessions alongside a balanced diet experienced more substantial weight loss compared to those who solely followed a diet.

Thus, personal training offers not only physical support but also emotional encouragement, making it a valuable asset in achieving successful and sustainable weight loss.

What if I have an injury?

Our Personal Trainers will work with you on any physical limitation or injury you may have.

During your one-on-one sessions, your trainer will have an opportunity to see you in motion and tailor your workouts, so you are gaining strength without exacerbating any injury you may be struggling with.

Talk to your trainer about any injury or concern. They can do a better job the more you discuss how your body feels and works. Everyone is different.

How many sessions do I need with a personal trainer?

The number of sessions with a personal trainer depends on your goals and current fitness level.

For beginners, 2-3 sessions per week over a few months can establish a solid foundation.

More experienced individuals might opt for 1-2 sessions weekly for ongoing guidance and progression.

For example, Mark aimed to lose weight and had 3 sessions weekly for 4 months, achieving remarkable results.

Conversely, Maria focused on strength, training twice a week for consistent gains over a year.

How much does a personal trainer cost in Portland?

This is usually everyone’s first question and we fully understand why. We pride ourselves on being able to find options for all budgets. We want to help everyday people achieve measurable results. How much a personal trainer costs varies depending on the number of personal training sessions you choose and your individual goals. Most people have goals including one or several of these:
  • weight loss
  • tone and firm
  • learning how to work out on your own
  • muscle gain
  • mental and physical health
  • wanting to feel better about yourself
Our personal trainers never get paid commissions and also do not sell supplements. They’re only goal is to help you succeed and you need to be able to trust their recommendations. Take advantage of our free personal training session and we will go over all your pricing options in person. Small group personal training can be as little as $15 per visit and thirty-minute personal training sessions are only $39. Our one-on-one personal training prices are consistently less expensive than boutique studios and big box corporate gyms and national chain meat markets. We offer monthly payment options and discounts for personal training packages that start as low as $69.

Small group personal training

We do offer small group training from a certified personal trainer.

The advantages of personal training in a small group include:

  • cost-sharing
  • camaraderie
  • friendly competition
  • fostering motivation

Participants benefit from personalized guidance while enjoying a supportive community.

Disadvantages of small group training include:

  • less individual attention
  • potential mismatch of fitness levels
  • limited customization

Scheduling conflicts might arise, and specific needs might not be fully addressed due to the group setting.

For many, participating in small group sessions is a good way to start, while keeping your costs lower.

Female Portland personal trainers

Yes! We have several female Portland personal trainers on our team.

Many of our clients are women who prefer working with a woman, so we’ve got you covered.

Queer Portland personal trainers

Not only do we have queer personal trainers, but we also offer a separate changing room for those not comfortable in the male/female locker room settings. Please let us know your specific needs, so we can match you up with an appropriate trainer.

Portland personal trainer reviews

I belonged to the Lloyd Athletic Club in 2022 and worked specifically with Chase, a personal trainer. She was incredible - I had a hard time getting back into moving my body and finding a workout routine after the pandemic and she helped me break out of that. She's super flexible and met me where I was for each session, helping me reassess each time what I needed and what type of movement/exercise would help get me where I wanted to go. I highly recommend working with her!

I want to compliment my trainer Justin hugely! I am 79 years of age, and he treats me with the greatest respect and care. He is very careful to make sure none of my joints will be damaged by any of the machines. He is very well organized, and I truly appreciate and like Justin. He's a great trainer. I'm so glad he's "my trainer."
Marian Drake
I signed up for 10 personal training sessions with Khino and it has been a game changer for me. Khino is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to working out/fitness, not to mention an awesome guy. He has helped with form, technique, and mixing in various exercises that I have been able to incorporate into my weekly gym routine. I have done six sessions so far and the results are already visible.
