7 Benefits of Hiring a Personal Trainer

By Maire,

The image of a personal trainer yelling and pushing his clients until near collapse may scare some people away from hiring a trainer, but the benefits of using a personal trainer should be considered carefully. While some in the field provide “tough love” motivation, personal trainers typically work with clients in a non-threatening way, helping them to achieve specific fitness goals. Understanding the potential benefits of a personal trainer can help you decide if the financial investment is worthwhile.

Fit Radio Success Story

Meet Jennifer T.

Fit Radio is EXACTLY what I have been looking for. I love that I have the ability to let the app detect my pace for my “jogging” days and generate my BPM target rate to help me maintain my pace on “running” days. The controls are really intuitive and easy to set up by target pace and genre.

Fit Radio Success Story
I saw a Facebook Ad for Fit Radio. I just completed a great 10K race, but I was frustrated with the playlists I had cobbled together on Apple Music. Not being a big Trance or EDM music fan, I wasn’t crazy about the few 170 BPM running albums I found in my search either. In the past, I tried a couple different music apps that claimed to work with my playlists and music library, but they didn’t sync correctly with my Apple Music subscription and they didn’t offer their own mixes.

The ad for Fit Radio popped up in my feed and I figured, “It’s worth a shot,” but I never expected to be “wowed” by it. I’m so glad I clicked! The different genres make it so easy to quickly choose music that fits my mood. Being able to choose mixes based on my BPM helps me keep a steady running pace. I love the integrated timing, distance, and cadence features too. (Which also save me from draining battery life by opening other fitness apps.) I have a feeling my next races will have much better soundtracks!

Fit Radio Success Story – Meet Nathan O.

By Maire,

I love the Fit Radio app. I downloaded it because, in November, I will be running the NYC Marathon in support of the 75th Army Rangers Lead The Way Fund — a charity established to support the families of wounded and fallen Army Rangers— one of the Army’s most elite fighting forces. I’ve personally served 6 years in the US Army and was deployed overseas for 4 years. I’ve lost many friends in the process so they will be running with me in spirit on that day.

Fit Radio has certainly inspired me and I think it was a quality purchase. The music compilations and mixes from the Fit Radio app serve as additional inspiration and motivation for my training.

If anyone would like to donate to the wives and children of these soldiers, please click here. I would never advocate for a charity I didn’t full-heartedly believe in. This one is a fantastic cause.
