GET A GRIP PERSONAL TRAINING
MISSION STATEMENT/ RATIONALE
Hello there, my name is Dean Kaplan and I am a Personal Trainer located in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
After my first year of Uni around the age of 19, I came to the realisation that I had become really overweight. I also didn’t feel healthy.
I started exercising seriously at that point and have never looked back! At 29 today my own personal Goal is still to never get complacent, but to continue to strive to be the healthiest and best person I can be. .
As for YOU…If you’re from this gorgeous area then I am sure you will be aware of Personal Trainers and Personal Training! Also, that while some Trainers and PT Groups are really good, others just ‘paint by the numbers’, doing the bare minimum for their clients (who deserve the best!)…
But I can really only speak for myself and I pride myself on delivering a high quality, affordable, and professional service to my clients.
I give them my best and I expect their best.
Indeed, Personal Training is more than just a ‘job’ to me:
It is about helping people change their lives, or enhance their life, in ways that are more fundamentally important than increasing the size of their biceps or lowering their weight on a scale.
Now don’t get me wrong, these can be valid aims but they can also be seen as stereotypes…stereotypes in which people with trainers are often portrayed as spending their money on a ‘luxury’ in the pursuit of vanity.
This is wrong!
But who am I?
Instead, people with healthy bodies are more likely to have healthy minds, through therelease of stress, stimulation of the dopamine (i.e. pleasure) receptors in the brain during exercise and either having or working towards having a positive self-image. Furthermore,life’s everyday hassles seem a little easier after you’ve come out of a tough training session, where you gave everything you had and persevered.
This is over and above the absolutely tremendous benefits of a consistent and rigorous (without overdoing it!) exercise regimen, leading to a lowered risk of Type II Diabetes and Osteoporosis, not to mentioned improved cardiovascular health and bone density along with lowered blood pressure. Training will also help you keep your muscle tissue as you get older, gain strength, improve your fitness and increase your overall longevity and quality of life.
Oh and did I mention that some recent studies suggest a link in which exercise may help ward off dementia in the elderly?
And of course you can build your biceps too :).
