Testimonials

 
"I started long distance running several years ago, which included my first marathon. After the marathon I started working with a personal trainer, Nick Pastorino, at the Nook Sports for strength training. Nick is the consummate professional. He meticulously plans a diverse training regimen to help me achieve my goals. He not only teaches me new skill sets, but also explains why and provides encouragement and drive every step of the way. 
Within 6-months of working with Nick I was able to drop 15 minutes off my personal best marathon time. The past 2 years he has helped me complete the 'Dopey Challenge' at Walt Disney World, Orlandoduring marathon week. The 'Dopey Challenge' is 4 runs over 4 consecutive days starting with a 5K followed by the 10K, half-marathon and full-marathon the following days; 48.6 miles. I felt strong and was injury free following these races and I continue to work with Nick to compete in the 'Dopey Challenge' in 2021. Highest recommendation."  John (Mountville, PA)

Duties of a Personal Trainer

The world of personal training may seem like an unfamiliar and mysterious realm. Questions about what makes a good personal trainer and the benefits of hiring a personal trainer may be circulating in your mind. That's why we've compiled everything you might be wondering about in one place.

It's the personal trainer's responsibility to design a safe and effective fitness program. Together, you and your trainer will set goals, discuss any physical limitations or injuries you have and put together an all-encompassing training regimen for you to follow. A trainer will ensure you're performing every exercise safely and with perfect form. They'll push your limits, encourage you to achieve your intermediate benchmarks and help you accomplish your goals.

Benefits of Hiring a Personal Trainer

As one of the top pro athlete training facilities in central PA and beyond, Spooky Nook Sports has personal training options that can help individuals at any experience level. Hiring a personal trainer comes with many benefits, including:

  • Injury prevention: Trainers will keep you safe as you excel, decreasing your likelihood of getting injured. By watching your every move and ensuring proper form every step of the way, they'll keep you working hard without the risk of injury.
  • Accountability: If you struggle with commitment or self-motivation — and even if you don't — your trainer will be there to help you stay fired up throughout your training journey.
  • Personalized instruction and goals: Your trainer will help you reach specific goals through customized workouts. Every scrap of energy you put into your workout will go toward hitting your target.
  • Efficiency: Following a specially designed program optimizes your workout time. You won't waste a single second with personalized training.
  • Motivation: We know tough workouts can be hard to finish. Your personal trainer will help pump you up with all the motivation you need to hit your reps, up your speed and break your records.
  • Progress tracking: Personal trainers don't just help you perform better — they also keep track of your progress. There's nothing quite like looking back at where you were when you started and comparing that to where you are now.

What Makes a Good Personal Trainer?

There's more to a good personal trainer than playing a sport and reading sports performance magazines. Good personal trainers are certified, with degrees in fields such as exercise science, physiology, or kinesiology. They also have years of experience, so they know how to keep you safe while they train, motivate and challenge you.

At Spooky Nook Sports, our personal trainers in Lancaster, PA, have an extensive background in exercise, meaning you'll receive top-notch services that will push you to be your very best.

Our sport personal trainers understand how to set attainable goals for each of your sessions, ensuring you are always motivated to be your best. When you regularly work with our trainers, you'll start recognizing a difference and impress yourself with your own abilities. 

Where Does Personal Training Take Place?

You'll likely take part in your personal training at a gym or sports complex. These spaces allow access to a full range of equipment for all your training needs. They're also a great place to feel inspired and inspire others with your training routines.

The largest athletic performance center near central PA, our facility houses world-class equipment, fields, courts and more. Our trainers will help you make the most of the available options so you can improve your fitness while doing activities you enjoy. 

How Often Should I Meet With My Personal Trainer?

If you're new to training, you'll likely want to meet two or three times per week for two to three months. At the end of those first few months, you and your trainer will evaluate your results and reset goals. Because our sport personal trainers are experts at tailoring routines to fit your needs and provide the results you're looking for, you and your trainer can decide on an even better schedule to help you reach your goals.

For athletes, it's common to meet up to five times per week for at least six months depending on the training program. Some programs are year-roundwhile others are seasonal. At Spooky Nook Sports, our team of personal trainers in Lancaster, PA, is experienced in working with athletes, so no matter your goals or current athletic abilities, our trainers are sure to create a routine that will advance your capabilities. We're dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and challenge your athletic abilities in the best way possible.
