Training as a Denver Personal Trainer
What’s the latest news on personal training in Denver, Colorado? I am a Denver personal trainer that’s been training here for 10 years and I have seen a lot change in that time. Personal training used to just be one on one stuff. Now, I think the majority of training is small group to decent size classes. My experience with the evolution of training was when some of my one on one clients couldn’t afford it anymore. So, what I would do is I would put two people together and they would split the cost. Pretty cool right? Over the last 8 years, those groups have grown from two people to an average group size of 5-6 people.
One on One Individual Personal Training
Personal training as it just used to be called is just you and the trainer. You get the trainer’s utmost attention. They call show you all the exercises, proper form, correct technique, and really push you when you get to the point of getting fatigued or just losing motivation.
Small Group Personal Training
You may have heard of this as buddy or partner personal training. This is where a couple of people or more (I’d say anywhere from 2-6) get together and workout together. Some trainers are accommodating and won’t charge you more for two of you, but most will. This is a great way to get personal attention and professional advice while working out without paying for those high premiums with a trainer.
Fitness classes like boot camp, Zumba, Pure barre, etc are great because you can still get a good workout, have an instructor to hold you accountable, and they are totally affordable. Look for Living Social and Groupon deals to get a deal too. And most of these classes are taught be certified Denver personal trainers.

A personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in exercise prescription and instruction. They motivate clients by setting goals and providing feedback and accountability to clients. Trainers also measure their client’s strengths and weaknesses with fitness assessments. These fitness assessments may also be performed before and after an exercise program to measure their client’s improvements in physical fitness. They may also educate their clients in many other aspects of wellness besides exercise, including general health and nutrition guidelines. Qualified personal trainers recognize their own areas of expertise. If a trainer suspects that one of his or her clients has a medical condition that could prevent the client from safe participation in an exercise program, they must refer the client to the proper health professional for prior clearance.
