Hi, I’m Brian Maher, I’m a personal trainer in Philadelphia and the owner of Philly Personal Training. I know that getting in shape and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not an easy task. Being healthy and physically fit involves exercising, preventing injury, and executing a proper diet plan. I understand that my clients with fitness or weight loss goals are often balancing hectic work schedules in addition to family and social obligations, so I have created personal training packages to make meeting your goals easier and more convenient. These packages include more than just personal training; whether it’s designing, implementing, and motivating you through your workouts, creating your own personal nutrition plan, or helping you stretch and recover, I will design a fitness plan that’s right for you and your lifestyle. If you’re in the Center City, Philadelphia area and are looking to lose weight and get in shape, contact me today and find out how you can reach your fitness goals by working with a personal trainer.
What Separates Philly Personal Training from Other Personal Trainers in Philadelphia?
Education in Fitness and Exercise
Brian isn’t just a certified personal trainer, he’s a fitness expert with an exercise/sport science degree from Elon University. His education in anatomy, exercise physiology, exercise prescription and strength & conditioning separates him from the rest of the pack. He is also certified as a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength & Conditioning Association. While many personal trainer certifications only require a weekend certification course, the CSCS certification is the only certification in the world that requires a college degree in an exercise-related field.
Fitness is more than just a great workout that burns tons of calories. It requires discipline and determination in multiple areas in order to be able to achieve optimal results. While many personal training packages only offer 60 minutes of exercise, Brian offers the most comprehensive packages in the industry by including exercise, nutrition, exercise psychology, and rehab & recovery as a part of every package, giving you an overall feeling of improved fitness and wellness.
Exercise needs to be about more than just going through the motions. A great workout accomplishes a goal, not a time limit. During a personal training session with Brian, you’ll find that your workout accomplishes more in less time. There are a variety of strength training methods Brian uses during his training sessions: basic strength training, high intensity interval training, circuit training, sport specific training, plyometric training, and more! While maximizing a workout and burning the most calories in the least amount of time is Brian’s specialty, he realizes a workout needs to also be about important aspects of fitness like fixing postural issues, correcting imbalances of the body, and helping you return from past injuries.
Brian does more than just check up on his clients’ eating habits, he takes it one step further with nutrition planning. Brian designs meal plans based on his clients’ dietary restrictions and goals so they know exactly what is expected of them if they want to achieve success. All meals and snacks are created by Brian and packaged into a convenient grocery list to make your grocery shopping trip more efficient. Going out to dinner tonight? Part of Brian’s job as a personal trainer is to help clients make the best choice when going out to eat by looking up the menu and giving them healthy options so they know what they’re getting before they arrive. Once again, all of the guess work is removed and the client knows to follow the plan to success.
- Exercise Psychology
We’re all motivated by something different. Some are motivated to fit into a certain pant size, some are motivated to get rid of their lower back pain, and some are motivated to look good on their wedding day. Regardless of what is motivating you to get into shape, Brian is able to use his knowledge of exercise psychology to find what motivates you to to push yourself past what you thought was possible.
- Rehab & Recovery
Many of Brian’s personal training clients come to him with previous injuries and are unsure of how to fix them or work around them. He realizes that correcting these issues and restoring your body to 100% health is essential to advancing your fitness levels. Brian uses advanced stretching and rehabilitation exercises to keep his clients return to normal and remain healthy.
More Than Just Personal Training
Brian doesn’t sell personal training sessions, he sells fitness results. Instead of selling you on a number of personal training sessions, he and his clients come up with timetables to achieve the results they want. His clients achieve desired results time and time again and proof of these amazing fitness results can be seen on his s Testimonials page. In addition to his happy clients giving him rave reviews, he was named “Best Personal Trainer” by Philadelphia Magazine in 2013.
