Personal Training: The Right Choice For You

When most people hear the term “Personal Trainer,” they think of an over priced, over muscled, “brah” who only cares about protein shakes and getting “swole.” Sometimes these guys use this job as an ego boost or even as an opportunity to get a date for the weekend (Take a hike meathead!). Bigger gyms that offer personal trainers lack the quality that you would find in a more private gym. These places are just interested in getting you in and out as quickly as possible. You become a number and not a person. However, the road to finding success in fitness shouldn’t be seen as a conveyer belt. It’s hard to feel like you have a personal trainer when there’s nothing personal about the process. Here at Faster Fitness, we strive to provide the very best personal training St. Louis has to offer. Why do we think we’re the best? It’s because we’re built upon four tenants of truly worthwhile personal training program: Faster Results, A Custom Program, Nutrition Coaching, and Accountability.

Faster Results

Our expert trainers are the best St. Louis personal trainers in the game. They know superior methods to get you to start seeing results as soon as possible. We know that your time is valuable. Faster results means more “me time” for you. But don’t get confused by the word faster. Our personal trainers are not interested in “get fit quick” schemes. True fitness is a lifestyle, not a temporary change. Whatever your fitness goal is, we will do everything we can to hit that goal faster than any other gym in St. Louis. And once your goal is achieved, we don’t stop. We strive to create lifelong relationships with our clients. It’s after that first goal has been met that we can then focus our sights on the next one. Think of it not as a sprint to the finish line, and more like different stages in a marathon.

Custom Program:

Our trainers know that every single person looking for personal training in St. Louis needs a regime custom designed for them. That’s why our trainers consult with each and every client, making sure they fully understand everyone’s individual fitness goals. Bodies are like snowflakes, every one is unique and different. Some people may want a focus on strength training, while others want a cardio intense workout. Maybe you don’t even know what kind of workout you want. Whatever your case is, the best personal trainers in St. Louis are here for YOU. Once that program is created, we’re here to then encourage you to regularly stick with it. Routine is key for progress. When you get in the swing of it, it’s easier to maintain that consistency. If working out before you head to the office works for you… great! If you prefer to workout in the evening… that’s great too! The key is to create a program that works for you, and then utilizing that program when it works for you.

Nutrition Coaching:

Not only do our trainers help you with exercise, they provide nutrition coaching as well. They’re trained to know more than just fitness. They will come up with meal plans and diet tips to ensure you’re the healthiest person you can possibly be. Exercise without a healthy diet is like driving with only two tires – you’re not going to get to your desired goal. Simply cutting out trips to your local donut shop or late night 4th meal runs to Taco Bell isn’t enough. Everybody knows that heavy consumption of unhealthy foods is bad for you, but not everyone knows what to substitute these foods with. Our trainers are experts in a healthy balanced diet. They won’t just load you up on kale and quinoa just because that’s what they heard once on television, every single suggestion we give is backed by research and a profound understanding of nutrition. You can’t take us to the grocery store or your next dinner date out, but you can take the knowledge we impart with you so that you’re ready to make smart decisions when exploring the shelves or studying the menu.


The biggest reason people don’t see results from their workout regimen is a lack of accountability. Our personal trainers are not just there to whip you into shape, they are there to motivate you, support you, and provide accountability. We put the PERSONAL in personal training, and pride ourselves in truly caring about each and every client. Our number one goal as personal trainers in St. Louis is for you to see results. That is why we go out of our way to provide the best support we possibly can. It’s not because we’re paid to do so; it’s because we care. Seeing you succeed lets us know that what we’re doing is working. We’re invested in you as much as you’re invested in making your life better.

You are always going to have to make choices in your life. “Do I make a left or a right? Do I go out tonight and get that super sweet boozy drink, or do I relax at home with a healthy snack and get up early for the gym?” In the end, even what might seem like an incredibly minor decision, can make a huge difference. Choosing a personal trainer that’s right for you shouldn’t be a snap decision. You want to find the right fit for you – like finding the right puzzle piece. And like a puzzle, a good personal trainer can help fill the gaps in your life so that you can build a better you. That being said, you need to make that decision. That’s your choice. A personal trainer can only do so much.  You need to choose to make your life better. That series of simple words is a lot harder than it sounds, but in the end, it’s a choice that you won’t regret.
