Whether you are in search of a personal trainer to help you shed some of the winter weight that you packed on, or because you are just starting your fitness journey and need some educational advice, personal training is an extremely valuable resource that we are happy to offer here at the Rose City Barbell Portland CrossFit gym. As a functional fitness and CrossFit gym in the health and wellness industry, we understand why personal trainers are an important resource to people that are interested in losing weight and building muscle, but we understand that you may not know the benefits of having a personal trainer. Because of this, we see it important to discuss some of the benefits that you might receive from working with one of our experienced personal trainers here at Rose City Barbell.


Arguably one of the most important aspects of working with a personal trainer is that not only do they tell you the exercises that are the best fit to help you reach your fitness goals, but they will also tell you why. While yes, you may not necessarily need to know how the exercises benefit you in order to achieve marginal results, but truly understanding the workouts that you are doing, why you are doing them, and when you should be doing them can help you reach that next step on your fitness journey.

When you schedule a personal training appointment here at Rose City Barbell, not only will you get an instructor that is more than qualified to teach you elements of CrossFit, functional fitness, or Olympic weightlifting, but you will also get a personal trainer that is eager to teach you the intricacies of why each lift matters.

Form Perfection

Whether your interest lies in sports performance training, Olympic weightlifting, functional fitness, or CrossFit, one thing remains the same — the importance of form. The importance of form in weightlifting and fitness is absolutely immeasurable, as a proper form can lead to safer, and more effective lifts.

Portland weightlifting personal trainers can be a valuable asset you as a weightlifter, regardless of your skill set, because they can teach you how to get the most out of your lifting by drilling proper form with you. Additionally, proper form and techniques can prevent injuries that might occur during heavy, or improper sets. By utilizing resources like our Tigard fitness personal training staff, you as a weightlifter can learn to utilize safer, more effective, lifting techniques.

Setting & Adhering To Realistic Goals

One of the most important things that you, as a personal training client, will receive from your training sessions is that you will be able to set realistic goals. All too often people set lofty goals for themselves that end up negatively affecting their body. Instead, by setting realistic goals with a personal trainer, you will have a training regiment that supports healthy weight loss and healthy muscle gain that is slow and progressive rather than fast and destructive.

In addition to helping you set your fitness goals, our Portland personal training staff members are trained in helping you adhere to your training plan by providing both moral support and functional fitness tips and techniques that can help you make the push to reach your fitness goals.


Often times people think that they can challenge themselves, not needing others to push them to their limit. While yes, some people are exceptional in challenging themselves, others may not be as good as they think they are. The reasoning behind this is that once you become very tired, it becomes harder and harder to actually enforce that you adhere to your training regiment, often times cutting corners and skipping final reps.

When you have a personal training staff member watching your every move, coaching your form, and motivating you, you are less likely to skip those last sets, regress to poor lifting form, or fail to dig deep and finish the workout strong.
