Personal Training at CFIH

A Deep Dive into a Typical Personal Training Session

CrossFit has taken the fitness world by storm with high-intensity workouts and community-driven approach. At the heart of this revolution, we recognize that CrossFit isn’t for everyone and that there is a need for other options to obtain the fitness results you desire. Especially if you would feel more comfortable in a program that offers more personalization and accountability! That’s exactly why we provide personal training, too!

Personal training is designed to challenge and inspire individuals to reach their fitness goals no matter what level you’re starting from! If you’ve ever wondered what a typical personal training session at CrossFit Iron Horse entails, you’re in luck! In this blog post, we’ll break down the key components of a typical session to give you a glimpse into the personal training experience.

1. Warm-Up: Setting the Stage for Success

Every personal training session kicks off with a dynamic warm-up. This isn’t your typical warm up, filled with static stretches that should be reserved post workout. Instead, you’ll engage in a series of dynamic movements like walking, jogging, jumping jacks, high knees, lunges, and arm circles designed to gradually increase your heart rate. The warm-up is crucial for preparing your body and mind for the workout ahead, reducing the risk of injury, and enhancing overall performance. The best part? Your coach will guide you every step of the way!

2. Skill or Strength Training: Mastering the Fundamentals

Once you’re warmed up and ready to go, it’s time to focus on skill or strength training. Depending on your fitness goals and abilities, your coach will guide you through a series of exercises aimed at developing specific skills or building strength. Whether you’re learning the proper technique for basic movements necessary for every day life or you’re working to master higher level skills like handstand push-ups, your coach will provide personalized instruction, feedback, and corrections to ensure you’re performing each movement safely, effectively, and at the appropriate pace.

3. Workout of the Day (WOD): Embracing the Challenge

The heart and soul of any CrossFit workout is the Workout of the Day, or WOD for short, which we also refer to in the personal training space! The WOD is typically timed or scored, encouraging friendly competition and allowing you to track your progress over time. Don’t worry if some of the exercises seem intimidating; your coach will program our works to meet your current abilities, ensuring a challenging yet achievable workout experience. All you have to do is show up!

4. Cool Down and Stretching: Recovery is Key

After your workout, it’s crucial to take some time to cool down and promote recovery. Your coach will guide you through a series of static stretches aimed at lowering your heart rate, alleviating muscle soreness, improving flexibility, and enhancing overall recovery. This cool down period is essential for reducing the risk of injury, preventing muscle stiffness, and preparing your body for your next workout.

5. Nutritional Guidance and Goal Setting: Fueling Your Fitness Journey

Last but not least, many personal training sessions at CFIH include nutritional guidance and goal setting discussions. Your coach will provide valuable insights and recommendations on nutrition, hydration, and supplementation tailored to support your fitness goals and optimize your performance. Setting realistic and achievable goals, whether it’s losing weight, building muscle, or improving overall fitness, will help keep you motivated and on track to success

To summarize, a typical personal training session at CFIH offers a comprehensive and dynamic workout experience that is tailored to your individual needs, preferences, and fitness level. From the dynamic warm-up and skill or strength training to the workout, cool down, and nutritional guidance, each session is designed to guide you on the path to your health and fitness goals!
