What kind of fitness center or personal training studio is best for you?

Jan 22, 2016

So what makes a fitness studio such as Fitness Together Belmont stand out against a more conventional "big box" gym like Work Out World, Planet Fitness, or any other gyms in Waltham, MA? A good way to determine which would be the best fit for you as an individual is simply to compare for yourself how they operate and what each has to offer, as well as any foreseeable issues that might arise there. What may be the best fit for a friend or coworker may not be what's best for you so its important to do your own research before making a commitment!

One thing to consider might be what times you'd like to train. While the middle of the day is quiet at a regular gym, if you plan on going after work in the evenings you may find yourself waiting for equipment or having to change your routine in order to stay moving. With a one on one personal training studio, when you schedule your appointment you are also guaranteeing your access to any and all necessary equipment as well as the undivided attention of a certified personal trainer without the distractions of others working out right next to you. While almost any gym you join will offer personal training, at Fitness Together your program will involve a lot more than just lifting weights or doing your cardio. Starting with movement assessments and nutritional sessions our goal is to help you improve your overall health and wellbeing, not just your dead lifts or 5k times!

Other factors to consider are how well you can motivate yourself, whether you prefer to work out alone or in groups, and what specific personal training services you may be interested in. At Fitness Together Belmont we offer a wide variety of options including one on one or small group personal training, and sessions focused entirely on nutrition counseling, It can be easy sometimes at large gyms to find yourself lost in the crowd or grouped with other clients who have similar generic goals such as "weight loss" or "strength gain". Right from the start, our goal is to help you design the best and most complete plan possible in order for you as an individual to reach your desired results.


Schedule a complimentary fit evaluation so we can get to know you and your goals and build you a customized training program to reach them.
