Dwayne Wimmer, Vertex Fitness Owner: Proven Strategies for Adding Muscle and Increasing Strength at Any Age

Phil Faris: I think that the guidelines you provided apply to any trainer. If you’re going to be working with a trainer, you want someone that helps you achieve your fitness goals for the long haul. If you don’t feel comfortable with their approach, their personality, or how they adapt to your specific needs, you’re better off going to somebody else. It’s your money and your time! Find the person that will give you the kind of results that you’re looking for. The best way to do that is, in person, after a workout, and while they’re asking questions specifically about you. You’ll get a much better assessment that way than any other. I agree with you there.

Dwayne Wimmer: Right. And something I tell people all the time, I can’t show you what I do on my website, I can’t show you what I do even in a conversation. You can’t feel it, you don’t know how you’re going to feel about doing it until you are doing the exercise, and hearing how I’m explaining it, and that’s the only way you’re going to know if it’s right for you. So, test-drive it.

Phil Faris: That makes sense, especially when you’re talking about the concept of getting maximum effort. A lot of people don’t know what that is until they experience it and then say, “Oh, that’s what it’s like.”

Dwayne Wimmer: Most people don’t know what it is after one session either. That might be what they think it is, but slowly we show them how their body can adapt, and how their body can do more than what they ever thought it could, in a safe way.

Phil Faris: Dwayne, I want to thank you so much for sharing your insights and experience about fitness, especially with our over-50 population. If people want to learn more about Vertex Fitness Personal Training Studio or want to contact you, where should they go?
