How Often Should You See a Personal Trainer?

What are your fitness goals in 2020? Whether you’re looking to tone, strengthen, or become more flexible, a personal trainer can guide you through the process. Our knowledgeable, passionate staff at Zero Gravity Fitness in Ocoee, Florida is ready to help.

Why Hire a Personal Trainer?

Are you feeling lost at the gym? Not sure where to start? Need a push? That’s where a trainer comes in. Our role is to help you adopt and maintain a healthier lifestyle through exercise.

Scientific research has made it clear that frequent bouts of moderately intense physical activity can favorably impact body composition while reducing the risk of many chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Other studies have shown an improvement in mental and emotional health among those who engage in regular exercise. These benefits include greater confidence, improved mood, and a reduction in feelings of stress and anxiety.

While most of us are convinced of the benefits of exercise, many are confused—even overwhelmed—by the seemingly endless array of workout styles and methods. Others are unsure how to operate the various machines and pieces of equipment they come across in a gym or, perhaps, they’ve had a previous injury or other unpleasant experience during an exercise session.

If any of this sounds familiar, you may benefit from the knowledge and experience of a personal trainer.

What Does a Personal Trainer Offer?

People seek out trainers for different reasons, but a few of the many benefits include:


Sometimes life gets in the way. If you’ve been out of the game for a while, our training staff can provide reassurance that you’ll regain the momentum. We’ll be with you every step of the way, reminding you of the many benefits that regular exercise provides, and we’ll do our part to help you stay the course.

We all have our ups and downs, but showing up is half the battle. If you make the commitment, you can count on your trainer to provide positive reinforcement throughout the process. We’ll celebrate every extra rep, every max lift, and every personal best.

Program design

Our trainers are nationally-certified and knowledgeable about exercise physiology and biomechanics. But fitness isn’t one-size-fits-all. We’ll create a program customized to your goals, training background, injury history, and any limitations or restrictions. We don’t offer “cookie-cutter” training routines.

Periodic assessments will be made and modifications implemented, when appropriate, to ensure continued results. This way, you’ll maximize your effort at each session and get the most out of our time together.

Our trainers stay on top of the latest trends in the industry and incorporate plenty of variety to keep the workouts interesting, while also preventing training plateaus.  


Safety is our top priority. Our certified trainers will provide proper exercise instruction. We’ll monitor your form and technique on all exercises and offer appropriate feedback to minimize injury risk. We’ll never ask you to do something you feel uncomfortable with, and we’ll take a gradual approach, increasing the intensity incrementally.


We want you to succeed, and we see our role as partners in that journey. That means identifying and proactively addressing any obstacles that may hinder your progress. Communication is key here. We’ll do our best to keep you on track, but we’ll also empower you to take ownership of your body the choices you make that might impact your results.

How Often Should You See a Personal Trainer?

This will vary by individual, but most of our clients meet with their trainer several times each week. Studies have shown that those who engage in regular exercise reap more benefits than those who do so sporadically.

After an initial consultation, your personal trainer will lay out a tailored program, discuss ideal frequency, and recommend a training schedule that works for both of you.

What Are the Training Sessions Like?

Our personal training programs incorporate strength training, aerobics, pilates, and yoga. We make use of machines, free weights, and kettlebells. Variety is important to keep the workouts fresh. We’re going to push you, but we promise you’ll have some fun!

Can I Bring a Friend?

Absolutely! We offer Buddy Sessions for couples or friends who are interested in working out together with the same trainer. You may also be interested in one of our innovative group fitness classes, such as Russian Kettlebell, Superflex, or Barre Fusion.

How Do I Know If It’s For Me?

Personal training is for anyone who wants to make the most of their time in the gym. A personal trainer can give you the confidence to know that you’re exercising in the safest, most effective manner.

We train a wide range of clients: young and old, male and female, beginners and those who consider themselves more advanced. Our trainers work with those interested in general fitness, as well as those populations with more defined goals, such as athletes in need of sport-specific training and individuals rehabbing an injury.

How Do I Get Started?

Whether you’ve never stepped foot in a gym or fitness studio or whether you’re looking to take your training (or physique) to the next level, a personal trainer can provide the structure and support you need. We offer a comfortable, non-judgemental, and unintimidating workout space.
