One can look around and see there are a lot of fitness centers around Grand Junction and with fitness centers come trainers. But, how well can they train/coach and what are their credentials?
Well, that’s certainly a question I asked when selecting a trainer and why I go to Allen Russell.
First of all, Allen holds a Masters degree in his profession and more continuing education than I could mention! He himself is an amazing athlete
Allen will adapt his training to your type of learning style. At age 50, which has already been 12 years ago, I sought out Allen as a swim instructor. Even though swimming was a big fear for me, Allen was able to reassure me and give me the confidence that I could learn to swim. He started with the basics and was very patient and gave me guidance I needed to accomplish my goals. And he actually made the class fun so I wanted to come back.
I have not pursued swimming as part of my exercise regimen but I have continued to use Allen to compliment to my strength training. When Allen shows up for class, he is well organized and devoted to the scheduled time allotted. Allen takes the time to explain why we’re doing a certain exercise a certain way and he’ll explain the reason behind it.
Recently, I had a slight hip injury and Allen was able to give me modifications so I could continue my workout and not add undue stress to the area.
I have referred other clients to Allen and I hear compliments such as “I’ve been doing this particular exercise for years and no one has ever corrected me!” That’s because Allen has a very trained eye and understands proper body mechanics. He even corrects your breathing when you’re not doing it correctly! He’s tuned in to details!
Training comes easy for Allen because he has such passion for helping others achieve their goals. He enjoys seeing others reap the benefit of staying active with exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
So, if your ready to add exercise to your lifestyle or improve what you’re already doing, I highly recommend the Best, Allen Russell. Don’t settle for less!
