The staff at Silicon Valley Athletics urge you to step out of your comfort zone when taking on any fitness challenge. But we always want you to feel comfortable when doing it.
That is why we offer our clientele both male and female personal trainers at our Sunnyvale facility.
Working alongside a personal trainer can make a big difference in helping you reach your goals. Even more important is knowing that your personal trainer is someone who can directly relate to the particular challenges, concerns, or barriers that might exist in pursuit of those goals. We have found that many of our female clients prefer to work with a female personal trainer for these reasons.
We want your fitness journey to be a positive and enriching experience. Whether you’re trying to lose weight or gain muscle, our trainers are here to give you every advantage towards success.
Working with a Female Personal Trainer
There are many benefits to having a personal trainer by your side but we also understand that working with someone in that capacity can lead to some potentially uncomfortable moments. Male and female clients may prefer discussing certain issues or concerns about their health, wellness, and body shape with personal trainers who are members of the same sex.
For these individuals, we have a roster of highly-qualified male and female personal trainers ready to help you reach your objectives without the discomfort that may come from personal issues about one’s body or their habits.
A personal trainer is there to provide accountability and motivate you on the days when you may not feel like working out at all. That trainer is also going to put you to the test to challenge you to work harder each and every day so you can reach the ideal weight and body shape you want. This may come with some tough questions that you need to answer about diet and exercise if you want a program that’s going to help you reach your goals.
If you would feel a lot more comfortable working with a female personal trainer, you’re not alone. A wide range of our clients have expressed this same preference for any number of reasons.
A Better Understanding of the Female Body
We have found that some of our female clientele prefer working with a personal trainer of the same gender because they can relate to the obstacles that can hinder progress during a workout. The female body presents a number of different advantages and challenges for achieving results that the male body does not have to contend with on a regular basis. Working alongside a female personal trainer can make some clients feel more comfortable when asking questions or focusing on certain areas for improvement.
Keeping this in mind, a female personal trainer can develop the precise workout program for a female client who has specific objectives she would like to reach. That program will typically be designed based on diet and exercise habits, some of which the client may be a bit reluctant to discuss freely with anyone other than a female trainer.
A client may be trying to lose weight and feel insecure about discussing her body appearance. She may have questions about metabolism and caloric intake that are impacting her ability to reach her goals. That client may feel a lot more at ease talking to a female personal trainer about developing a training regimen that is best-suited for meeting her needs.
We aren’t suggesting that male personal trainers lack the knowledge, expertise, and experience in working with female clients. Just the opposite is true as our male personnel are highly-qualified and meet every one of our stringent standards for becoming a member of the Silicon Valley Athletics team.
But we also acknowledge and recognize the level of comfort space that women might seek when they want to work out and our female personal trainers are ready to assist you in any way possible to help you reach your fitness goals for both the short-term and the future ahead.
Silicon Valley Athletics will always be a safe, comfortable, and nurturing place for managing the challenges of building a better, healthier you.
