What is your fitness experience? How long have you been a personal trainer?

My name is Gwynn Lindler and my fitness career began 20 years ago at the Lake Norman YMCA, Cornelius, NC;  later launching into my own business of training women one-on-one in their home settings. Personal training has been my focus for over 14 years.  Hundreds of hours in training healthy and at-risk individuals led to a depth of experience with a wide variety of physical, and medical conditions.  Current certifications include ACE Certified Personal Training, ACE Certified Medical Exercise Specialist, The BioMechanics Method, and Precision Nutrition.  

My sweet spot for training is with the age 55-and-up woman who is committed to adding LIFE to her years!   Women in and around Franklin now have access to the professional, personalized, one-on-one AND online training offered by Gwynn Lindler Fitness.  Whether at home or on the road, Gwynn Lindler Fitness is there for you.

What do your certifications mean?

The American Council on Exercise (ACE) is the largest nonprofit fitness certification, education, and training organization in the world.  It is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). ACE is one of a few select certifying organizations in the entire fitness industry whose programs have been accredited.

 

An ACE-certified personal trainer passes an exam to demonstrate knowledge of risk factor screening, fitness assessment, nutrition, exercise science, and exercise programming.  The  trainer must also know appropriate exercise progressions, instructional and spotting techniques, lifestyle modifications, and professional scope of practice as it relates to personal training. An ACE personal trainer is required to take continuing education courses and re-certify every two years.

 

ACE Certified Medical Exercise Specialist has verified hundreds of hours of personal training experience, and specialized studies as a prerequisite to the exam. The ACE-CMES is qualified to provide in-depth preventative and post-rehabilitative fitness programming for individuals who are at risk for, or are recovering from a variety of cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic and musculoskeletal issues.

The BioMechanics Method® is a corrective exercise process used by health and fitness professionals to alleviate back pain and other chronic muscle and joint pain. It combines structural assessments, functional anatomy information, corrective exercise techniques, and life coaching strategies into a simple system that makes it easy to help clients feel and function better.

Precision Nutrition is an approach to coaching by listening to client's needs and what they want to accomplish, learning how they live, discovering what's really important to them, and working together to create the right nutrition and exercise approach based on their goals and lifestyle.

Who provides the equipment and what kind?

Isn't it great to know that you do NOT need hulking, heavy equipment to have a great training session?  I provide portable equipment—elastic resistance tubes, stability balls, mats, free weights, step bench, etc.  We may agree to use some of your own equipment.  I can assist you in choosing and purchasing your own favorites.  

Do you provide nutritional counseling?

Through Precision Nutrition, I provide guidance within generally recognized and established guidelines for healthful nutrition. For example, you may be asked to keep a food record for several days that we will review for purposes of making healthy food choices. We may discuss hydration, appropriate protein consumption, nutritious snacks/energy food during exercise, timing of meals, and more. If specialized dietary assistance is required, we will seek out a registered dietician (R.D.).

Do you sell supplements or any nutritional products?

Supplying nutritional supplements to my clients is outside my scope of practice and would be in violation of the ACE Code of Ethics.  Nutritional supplements are not FDA regulated at this time and therefore may contain substances that may put a client’s health at risk.

What is a complimentary consultation?

We will meet at your favorite coffee shop or location you choose for an hour or less. Your coffee or beverage is on me! You can help me by sharing your fitness concerns and your personal vision for your best fit self and life. Based on your input, I’ll offer suggestions and options for our personal training sessions. I’ll answer your questions to your satisfaction. If you choose me for your personal trainer, then we will decide on the training program, set up a schedule, and complete the paperwork and payment.

What is a fitness assessment?

A fitness assessment is done at our first session to set a baseline for progress.  The assessment includes a variety of measurements and activities to create a snapshot of your fitness and physical condition. Weight, circumference measurements, and body composition readings are done once a month. Your goals and desired results will guide the choice and frequency of additional assessments. Results are used to customize your training sessions.

What will we do during our personal training sessions? How often will we meet?

It varies for each woman.  Throughout the week, it is important to include a variety of cardiovascular, strength, balance, mobility, and flexibility activities that help you reach your goals in a safe and timely manner.  If you have other regular and enjoyable physical activities, we will include those as part of your overall plan.  Depending on you, I often adjust our training sessions to fill in your fitness gaps.
