Benefits of Working with a Certified Personal Trainer

Whether you’re an experienced athlete or just starting on your path to better health, personal training provides many benefits, including exercise technique training, targeted exercise routines, and boosted motivation. Below are more benefits of working with a Chamblee, GA, personal trainer.

As you continually push your body with new exercises, these trained professionals help you learn proper safety procedures and body care to maximize your benefits.

Targeted Training Programs

A common problem new gym clients experience is the plateau. A client with this problem may work out multiple days a week but still struggle to hit a goal weight or reach fitness targets.

Personal training helps reduce or eliminate the gym plateau problem. By working with personal trainers, you’ll create workouts designed specifically for your body and honed to help you achieve your sports or personal fitness targets.

Learn to Love Working Out

When many people imagine a personal training session, they picture hard work and exhaustion. While it’s true that trained experts design personal training sessions to safely expand a client’s capabilities and limits, these sessions also focus on the fun aspects of athletic training. By working with trainers, you will learn to enjoy the challenge of testing your limits and relish the excitement of achieving your body goals.

Budget for Better Health

Many people avoid working with personal trainers due to budget concerns. It’s no secret that joining a gym and dedicating to an intense program requires you to invest your time, energy, and money. However, the results are well-worth the investment, and personal trainers will help ensure that you achieve those goals.

This is a very clean gym and the coaches are skilled at what they do. I had a session with Kalil last week which was the perfect mixture of effort and rest. Communication was very clear and I look forward to more sessions here. Good music too! Update: I've been working with Kalil consistently for 5-6 months and he is an industrious and well educated coach. As a general population participant, having a program designed for me has improved my quality of life and has indirectly strengthened my yoga practice.

Highly motivated and educated team of coaches. I feel we are in good hands and our health is being protected I have been working out/exercising for more than 55 years. Some of the time joining gyms and other times working out in my home gym. I'm not a bodybuilder or a power lifter. Just an average person who enjoys working out because of how it makes me feel and look. I joined "The Rack" and once a week meet with a trainer, Jermaine Hough aka Jr. The quality and quantity of the equipment is fabulous. What makes it even better is the professionalism and willingness of the entire training staff to assist you to get the most out of your workout. If you are looking for a place to workout/exercise then you should definitely check out "The Rack"!

I was looking for a place to work out near the office when I stumbled across The Rack Athletic Performance Center and Kalil. It is not your average "gym" but rather a one-on-one or group training environment customized just for you. The equipment is incredible, the atmosphere friendly, and the facility clean. I like that everyone is there for a purpose and not social hour. Most importantly, I like the tailored work out plan and motivation Kalil provides each week to keep me pushing forward. If you are looking to get in shape or improve your strength, then Kalil at The Rack is where you want to be.

Coming up on my 32nd birthday I knew I needed to change my routine from just walking into a big box gym and "knowing my way around." I knew I needed to be more intentional and focused with my overall fitness and health. I went for a free consultation/testing at The Rack and was introduced to my trainer Kalil. The gym itself is clean, fun, and has all of the equipment I knew my old gym was missing. Kalil is very knowledgeable about his craft and clearly understands how to combine your goals with your currrent shortcomings to help get you where you want to be. We've only been working together for two weeks now and I feel noticeably different, most importantly, in how I feel after I play basketball. I haven't felt this good the morning after playing in a long time. I highly recommend checking out The Rack and asking to work with Kalil!

Great facility, great workouts, great vibes.

I can’t say enough good things about The Rack. Great facility with top notch equipment and none of the commercial gym BS. I came here in November looking for a place to continue my powerlifting training. I had never considered hiring a coach, but after talking to Kalil I decided to give it a shot. Best decision I have ever made. I’ve been working with Kalil for 5 months now and am not only the strongest I have ever been, but in the best shape of my life. Results speak for themself and that’s what you get when you work with him. Don’t take my word for it though, if you’re a hard worker and have a goal in mind, come see what he can do for you.

Best place to come if you're an athlete who wants to get better. Kalil got me faster and stronger just from 2 months of hard work. Every day I look forward to working with him and beating my previous PRs, jumping higher, and running faster. If you want to get better, this is the place to come.

After lifting in chain fitness places for over 10 years, feeling like I wasn't really 'strong', and injuring myself to the point of requiring a surgery, I finally said enough was enough and looked for a place to actually 'train' at. Not just lift, train. Rack APC hit all the targets I was looking for -their focus, staff, equipment, approach, location. Started in 01/20 with one request: I'd like to get my core strong. Not Duane Johnson strong, just strong. A year later? All that and more. I've worked with a trainer 2x a week. He's patient, pushes hard to my capabilities, and I'm definitely better for it. Can't wait to see where I am this time next year.

Cleanest personal training gym I've ever been in. They focus on making sure people can improve themselves without worrying about the pandemic through temperature checks upon entry, wiping down each piece of equipment after each use, and having a wipe down of everything, every night. Apart from that, Ed and his team and fantastic trainers who respect their customers regardless of how they look. Wanting to shed some pounds in the right way with workouts you are actually able to do? Wanting to gain more muscle strength and are already in good shape? It's for everyone. There aren't a bunch of psychotic muscles heads or whining customers...people come there to work and make progress. I suggest the Small Group Sessions for people on more of a budget. It's a great value that still gets you personal training and a plan tailored to your needs. Great job Ed and team! Love the Rack Family!

Switched to this gym about 5 months ago. Was a little hesitant because the commute was longer, but had heard great things. Haven’t been in many mid-sized gyms, but this one is very well designed, extensive equipment, and very detailed. Looks like the gym for a college football team, very clean and all the bells and whistles. Trainers are all very knowledgeable and are working with everyone from your average Joe to your high school / college athletes. I’ve working with the nutritionist that they partner with to help straighten out my diet to match my workout goals and one of the trainers even does learning sessions to help you learn more about your body fat, recovery, your body in general, etc. All said, if you’re looking for a clean, one stop shop gym, with trainers who see you as someone that wants to get better and not dollar signs, then this gym is for you.

This is the absolute best Gym in Atlanta. Not only does it have the top of the line, professional equipment, but also has incredibly dedicated, knowledgeable and professional trainers and coaches. Whether you are an athlete looking to improve your performance or a an adult looking to focus on the health benefits of weight and strength training, The Rack should be the first choice on your list to consider. I have been a member of the Rack for more than 3 years now, and in that time, I have gained strength, lost weight and improved my physical endurance...all thanks to the team at The RACK

Rob, my coach has been a blessing. I am so glad I decided to continue working with him when he relocated to The Rack. He has consistently challenge me. Developed training programs specifically for me. Programs that change to address and focus my body type and physiology. Programs that change consistently to challenge me but also to keep things new, interesting, obtainable goals The coaching sessions are very challenging which I truly appreciate. The programs are different from his other clients. His dedication to his profession is evident in his work ethic and the continuing education he does. I was immediately impressed by the facility and staff. The owner Ed as well as his entire staff have been very welcoming. He has a first class facility. The staff are organized, highly skilled, intelligent and understanding of their clients unique needs The equipment is well cared for through a culture of respect for the facility.

Just moved down to Atlanta and after a week working out here already feel at home. Being an athlete its hard finding a gym that has the right atmosphere and equipment to get the job done but this gym has it all! The owner and trainers are all friendly and knowledgeable and are always available to answer any questions you have. All the people working out there are friendly but at the same time about getting their work done! They have reverse hypers,atp,inverse curl, standing leg curl, a million different bars and sleds etc. Its also prob the cleanest gym I’ve ever been too despite it being a strength gym which is usually dirty so added bonus!

Highly knowledgeable, skilled, and enthusiastic staff; Custom programs; Convenient scheduling; Consistent results; Positive vibe; Top notch equipment; Amazing music speakers and wheelie stands 😉 In the past, I did not particularly enjoy strength training, so I often wouldn’t do it. I finally realized it was critical to getting the most out of other stuff I like to do (tennis, running, spinning) and to preventing injury as I get older. Working primarily with Nick (but all the staff are fantastic) I’ve consistently trained for about 3 years and am ecstatic with the results. As only 1 of many examples, when I started I had trouble squatting properly. Nick recognized an issue with my glutes and referred me to a physio who fixed the issue. Now I can squat with respectable weight! And strength training is pretty darn fun. I have learned Olympic weight lifting moves, and custom programs change things up every 4 weeks to keep it interesting and to make progress.

As a recent retiree, I decided that I needed to get into much better shape for the next 30 years. I signed up for personal training with Nick. It’s been great. But that’s only part of why I like the Rack. One day when Nick was out, I was working on piece of equipment that was new to me. While Nick had showed me how to safely load and unload it, I had forgotten his instructions. One trainer stepped in as I was about to improperly add weights. He both reminded me how to safely load the bar as he helped me add weights. When I finished, a second trainer, having seen my earlier inexperience, stepped in to help me unload the bar, again, reminding me how to this safely. Later in the day, I needed a spot when bench pressing. A third trainer gladly helped me even though he was in the middle of training someone else. His client did not seem to mind at all. Everyone gets it, safety first. The point of all this is that Rack seems to have found staff that genuinely cares about the safety and success of its members. My experience that day was not unique. I have seen the staff help and guide other members many times. I don’t think staff like the Rack’s happens randomly. It comes from carefully vetting each trainer before hiring them on. The right people with the right experience and attitude go a long way in helping me reach my goals. Great job guys!
