Fitness Trainers are valuable at all levels. They can teach high school athletes the principles of training for strength, power, and endurance. They can help prepare the college or professional athletes for the high demands of elite sport—often determining whether-or-not they make the team. Fitness Trainers can also help average people reach higher levels of performance in recreational tennis, skiing, masters’ sports, league basketball, softball, and bodybuilding. The trainer also can be a motivating factor to help people maintain a healthy lifestyle that involves regular exercise, proper nutrition, reduced stress, and reduction of disease risk factors.
Now It's Personal Training is well versed in training techniques that develop power, skill, coordination, speed, reaction time, and balance. These skills are largely developed through specific training—stressing the body to change and improve it.
Fitness experts realize that fitness means more than a healthy heart. In addition to aerobic capacity, other components of fitness are vital to health and performance. These include muscular strength and power, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition. The power sports—football, basketball, baseball, golf, tennis, throwing, sprinting, and volleyball—each have special fitness requirements that go well beyond the body’s need for oxygen and promotion of wellness.
Maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max): Ability to consume, transport, and use oxygen. Sometimes called aerobic capacity. Most physical activities in daily life and athletics take more than 90 seconds, so O2 consumption is critical for survival as well as performance. Oxygen consumption increases as we progress from rest to easy exercise to intense exercise. The maximum rate that people consume O2, called maximal oxygen consumption or VO2max (a scientific symbol meaning the volume of oxygen consumed per minute), is one of the most important factors that determines how hard they can exercise, how long they can sustain exercise, and how quickly they recover.
