What does a personal training and physical fitness session with Dennis look like?

Personal training with Dennis Hoop, a New York based Certified Personal Trainer from the National Academy of Sports Medicine is more than your standard gym exercise routine. Dennis personal training sessions are geared towards defining your goals and challenges first, thereafter he works towards creating a strategic, while flexible, plan that supports you in breaking through your own personal barriers and achieving your goals. Dennis accomplishes this through being creative with choice of movements, while highly focusing on proper alignment activities to ensure your performance goals are attainable. 

Following a detailed anamnesis during your initial consultation, Dennis uses both his knowledge in scientific research and holistic health training to educate you on how to utilize this information outside of your personal training sessions. Dennis’ intent is to provide you with useful resources and knowledge about yourself that can better help you understand the functions of your body and what affects your overall well-being. At the end of the day, you are responsible for taking care of yourself and thus you need to recognize what works for you, in order to create the lifestyle you enjoy. Dennis wants his clients to learn and be able to employ the changes they need for reaching their goals and feel great every step of the way. 


What will you learn from a personal training session with Dennis?

You are going to learn the basics about exercise and healthy nutrition, especially necessary for beginners on their wellness path. Learn various barbell movements such as squats, deadlifts, press, and Olympic Weightlifting with correct form and proper alignments. Over the years, Dennis has seen many people feeling intimidated with the concept of weightlifting and heavy training, but no need to worry about it here. For those who are completely new to this type of training, you start off being introduced to the various movements and techniques first, and then you train to gradually build on using weights, suitable for your own level. This is a very important practice in Dennis' strength training approach. You will walk away with a feeling of self-accomplishment. 

You are going to develop strength, endurance, speed, coordination and flexibility in a balanced relation. Each component plays an important role in reaching your fitness goals.

In accordance to physical training, you are going to learn about healthy and adequate nutrition, answering your burning questions like, “what foods should I really eat and what should I avoid, when and how should I eat?” Often, it is easy to get lost and feel confused in the abundance of information available today, from constantly emerging 'new' diet trends, 'promising' workouts and pharmaceutical supplements, advertised by the media. It is no secret that sooner or later those fad trends die off and you find yourself in the middle again, feeling like a failure for quitting on the next unsuccessful trial.

Dennis' primary goal is to help you build a sustainable and thriving lifestyle, where you are successful from all your efforts. Dennis’ belief is that balance is the key to optimal health, so in addition to the intense movements, expect to learn, practice and integrate tools such as meditation and breath therapy into your daily schedule.
