On March 19, 2016, personal fitness trainers from Solaire Resort and Casino, Novotel, Sofitel, and Fairmont Makati gathered at the Solaire Fitness Center for the Technogym Master Training led by seasoned fitness expert Daniel Remon of FitCorp Asia. The session was organized by E-Sports International, the exclusive distributor of Technogym equipment in the Philippines, to educate personal trainers about innovative fitness tools and to deepen their skills to better serve clients.
The training began with a discussion on the psychology of movement. According to Remon, the end goal of personal training should be to develop functional strength, which enables clients to more easily perform real-world, day-to-day tasks. In a similar vein, he also touched on the human motivation behind joining a gym, which he says is largely driven by the desire to attain confidence—insight trainers can use to better relate to their clients.
Remon also emphasized that all training programs must produce results. To ensure this, various factors like exercise type, metabolic conditioning, the body’s energy systems, mobility, flexibility, and the overload principle (progressively increasing weights to promote strength gains) all had to be considered when designing fitness routines. He also pointed out that effective workouts can be as short as 20 minutes as long as they are correctly and intelligently programmed.
The personal trainers then put the day’s training into practice by designing their own workout programs using Technogym’s Arke and Kinesis systems.
By giving them exclusive access to the latest exercise equipment and mentoring opportunities, E-Sports International hopes to create a community of fitness trainers that embodies Technogym’s dedication to promoting a wellness-focused lifestyle.
