Training Options

Are you considering the help of a personal trainer to help reach your fitness goals? The personal training experts at D21 Fit Studio in Evanston take a comprehensive approach to fitness and healthy living!

No matter what your training goal: weight loss, weight gain, increased strength, flexibility, strengthening core, increasing mass, toning, vitality—D21’s approach is “good, better, best!”

For the novice, training starts with one’s own body weight as resistance, doing functional exercises such as squats, push ups and pull ups, focusing on “Good” form. “Better” expands the type of exercises, such as incline press and lat pull-downs, increases the number of sets per move, and adds greater resistance, using free weights, the bar, and machines. “Best” occurs when each body part reaches its maximum function and form, incorporating the highest level of resistance, the widest variety of exercises, and greatest number of sets.

Each program and phase of training is individually personalized to accommodate specific goals set by the client. At D21, we work with you to cultivate an understanding of your physical fitness, to assure you will achieve great results while avoiding personal injuries.

TRAINING OPTIONS

SEMI – PRIVATE TRAINING

SHARE THE COST AND THE EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR AWESOME TRAINER
The semi-private training program is for clients who want an individually designed program at an affordable cost. Semi-private training allows clients to feed off of each other’s motivation to make for a high intensity, upbeat workout. Clients will do a personal assessment and goal session. After that session, they will train together with their workout partner or be placed in an available session with another client that has similar goals.

FACILITATED STRETCHING

Facilitated stretching as an integral technique to achieve greater muscle flexibility, increase range of motion, relieve muscle stiffness, prevent injury, and enhance overall personal fitness. Trained facilitators actively assist you during the entire stretching session. These are either extended times added to the end of your strength training sessions, or used alone as a dedicated session just for stretching.

PREPARATION for BODY BUILDING and FIGURE COMPETITION

It requires discipline and commitment for extreme athletes to achieve satisfactory results. This is why nutrition and training are the key to success. It takes at least three months to slowly and effectively taper down to your best physical condition. This is why a novice in this profession needs the expertise and knowledge of someone like Dietrich, who has trained figure, bodybuilding (male and female), and fitness competitors to achieve winning status.

Posture Program

It has been said that “posture is an essential part of the human condition.” To maintain posture, a body has to both resist gravity and maintain balance. Gravity can become our ally when we are not fighting it with a misaligned body, but one that is balanced within the line of pull of gravity. This can also be seen as a metaphor for all life struggles! When we sit at a computer much of the day, and often drive instead of walk, our connective tissue envelope gets tighter, and we can develop postural conditions. It then it takes a lot more energy as our body has to work against that line of gravitational pull rather than coordinating within its pull.
At D21 Fit Studio, Gina is a certified postural rehabilitation specialist. She can work with you on realigning your posture to minimize unnecessary strain in your life, and improve your balance as well, which also contributes to smooth and efficient musculoskeletal function.

1. New posture program
To strengthen posture, improve health, and prevent deterioration from sitting, typing, and driving occupations.

2. Balance improvement
