Personal Training

My personal past involved an active lifestyle and a job that provided the exercise and activity to keep fit. Racquetball, skiing, and co-ed softball are all very active sports that provided a work out for the entire body. The recent past has found me docile and depressed, so the desire for activity has diminished. My body and my health have suffered through this, so it’s time to make the effort to regain control and work for a healthier body. Implementing proper exercise and diet will assist with turning what I have into muscle and feeling better. A workout routine that will support building muscle tone and losing weight is the goal. At this time I do not have a regimented exercise plan. My work is very active so when I get home I am tired so I just want to relax and do my homework or watch television. I know that if I were to have a low-impact workout, I will increase my energy level. I have determined to begin with an hour of exercise 3 days a week. This will include low-impact weight lifting, bike riding, and swimming (Esser, 2012). In addition, I will like to focus on my abdomen area with the goal to firm up my stomach muscles. I used to do high impact bike exercises by doing laps up a hill each evening and I had my own workout gym in my basement where I pushed myself with weight lifting each evening. Unfortunately I have not been doing this because I don’t have my gym anymore and I am not as active anymore. Locomotion movements that are beneficial include biking and swimming. It is important to keep the body moving to assist in burning calories and to keep the heart pumping. Including breathing techniques will assist in lung function and provide necessary oxygen for building muscle. Walking can be a terrific type of low-impact locomotion…...

...Personal Training Mary Scales HPE/170 01/14/2013 Lena Walker Personal Training I have good intentions when it comes to physical activity but have found it very hard to maintain and continue doing things. At this moment my personal exercise habits are slim. I always start off with the right intentions of losing weight and feeling better about myself but once the pain starts to hit and the hunger feelings get stronger I end up quitting. Now that I am pregnant I want to make positive changes that I can stick with so I have decided to challenge myself and put a new plan in order. I want to be able to set realistic goals for myself and actually gain what I need for the baby and lose the weight I so desperately have been trying to get off for years. I have decided to incorporate yoga, light stretching, water aerobics and lots of walking into my new plan. I am also coming up with a healthy eating plan for me that won’t harm my baby and basically allow me to eat all I want without gaining to much extra weight. I really think this will help me through the pains of pregnancy and also post-partum allowing me to continue and lose weight after the baby. Being that walking is a locomotor exercise I will incorporating a lot of walking especially around my building. By starting with 5 or 10 minute walks 3 times a week and progress to 20 or 30 minute walks 3 — 5 times a week I feel this is the right path to start for me. I however will not be able to......

...Personal Training Paper Trevor Bonesteel HPE/170 Jacqueline C. DePaulis I used to have a planned way of dynamic and regular exercise. I had a BMX bike which I loved to race with, so at times of returning home from work, I took out the BMX and did laps; also I did training for upper and lower body altering days. I have been pregnant four times but that could not breakthrough my routine exercise. I worked out until I got admitted to the hospital for labor. I have a toned physic now but I am looking forward to go back to my active lifestyle because it makes me feel good and confident. I do not exercise to lose weight because I am not bulky but I do it for building up muscles and I feel better. Therefore, following a work out plan that aims at muscle building and toning the body would be appropriate. Currently I do not follow any type of training routine because I have a lot to do at my work. When I get back home all I do is relaxing, doing my lessons or watching something on the TV. I am aware about having a workout but not too much, which could boost up my energy level and endorphins. An hour of exercise on 2 or 3 days in a week at least would be setting my life into a regulation; which includes low-power weight lifting, jogging and walking, and swimming. I also have concern about my abdomen muscles and would like to firm up them by adding sit-ups to the workout routine. Previously, I liked doing high active bike exercises by climbing up a...

...The first thing I would do in the training seminar is a documentary program. This is where employees would learn about each foreign country’s history, culture, institutions, geography, and economics. I would use videotaped and Web-based presentations to help the employees get a visual understanding of each company’s culture. (Kreitner, 2009, p. 107) In doing this, I could focus on each aspect of the business and how it is interpreted in a foreign country. For example, I would have them watch the previous day’s news on the Web so if a client wanted to talk about current news, my sales personnel and executives would know what they are talking about. It is important to know what the current events are. It can be local sports news, the weather, or entertainment new. It is very important to know what is going on. You cannot afford to sound like you don’t know anything about the foreign country you are doing business with. I would also try to get my employees familiar with the other culture through exposure to a series of simulated intercultural incidents, or typical problem situations. (Kreitner, 2009, p. 107) An example would be an incident when you have to answer why people in a certain culture respond a certain way. You could have several answers to choose from and you find pick until you find out the correct answer. When you pick the correct answer, the feedback is extensive, describing similarities and differences between the two cultures. Gradually, the trainee......

Personal Training Paper

...Personal Training Paper Daniel T. O’Grady HPE 170 October 14, 2013 In order to properly guide myself in the right direction to a personal weight loss goal, it is important that I critiqued the physical activity I was performing before I tried to take on this program. Essentially, I was a hard worker. Though not considered a “gym rat” by any means, I work in a high volume restaurant that requires me to be on my feet for most of the day. Now, even though this does not have to be considered a daily work out ritual, doing so for nine hours at a time, five days per week can be just as tedious as a cardio workout. Once I realized I would want to better my physical fitness, I began researching ideas that could help me to do so. Eating right of course is the first thing to a better and healthier body. Anyone will tell you, you can go to the gym countless hours per week, but if you are putting garbage in your body, it isn’t necessarily going to make a huge difference. I have tried fad diets and exercising, and yes, they did work for certain periods of time, but in the end the weight came back. Jogging in the summer and spring turned into waiting through the fall and the winter, and during that time we tend to put pounds on rather then shed them. Holidays and parties and the cold weather would all relate to eating more and exercising less. When I would work, I would use that as my excuse to say I was getting enough physical activity. Being on the schedule......

Training has hired the services of a performance management consultant to provide one-day workshop training to their nurse supervisors. A new model of nursing requires the performance appraisals to be conducted to ensure the implementing of this new model. This six month based performance appraisal requires evaluating the nurses and interviewing the nurses to discuss the future improvements. This training program had failed poorly and any positive outcomes from training were next to nothing. I will analyze the short comes of this training and discuss of ways to make it better with the help of various learning and motivation theories. Analyzing this case with Gagne’s learning outcomes can show us what is learned from this training program and what was not learned. Gagne's classified the learning outcomes in five general categories. According to him, training programs are usually focused on one or more of these learning outcomes. In this case, the expected learning outcomes of the training program and what trainees learned are as following: * Verbal Information – declarative knowledge Administration wants to bring in a training program for the nurse supervisors to get the information, knowledge and principles to conduct the performance appraisals bi-annually. * Intellectual Skills – procedural knowledge Procedural knowledge was an essential part of this training as the participants were informed of the concepts, rules and procedures to conduct performance......

...How training and development supports business growth Introduction Tesco is the largest British retailer and is also the world’s third largest grocery retailer with outlets across Europe, USA and Asia. The business began in 1919 with one man, Jack Cohen, selling groceries from a stall in the East End of London. Jack bought surplus stocks of tea from a company called T.E. Stockwell. T.E. Stockwell and Cohen combined their names to brand the tea Cohen originally sold – TESCO tea. In 1929, the first Tesco store opened in north London. Tesco has expanded since then by a combination of acquisition of new stores, retail services and by adapting to the needs of consumers. Tesco has net profits (before tax) of around £3 billion. Tesco’s primary aim is ‘to serve the customer’. Keeping existing customers happy is important, as they are more likely to return. This is more cost effective for the business than acquiring new ones. In the UK Tesco now has over 2,200 stores ranging from the large Extra hypermarket style stores to small Tesco Express high street outlets. Tesco’s original product range of grocery and general merchandise has diversified to include banking, insurance services, electrical goods as well as telephone equipment and airtime. This move towards ‘one stop shopping’ means customers can meet all their purchasing needs from one place. Tesco has also expanded its customer base through its website which attracts one million regular users. As the company has grown...

...Training consists of planed programs designed for individuals, group and or organizations to improve performance, in turns that implies that measurable changes knowledge, skills, attitudes and social behavior. “When we examine the training enterprise as a whole, it is clear that training issues can be addressed from at least two perspectives. At the structural level, we can examine issues such as the following, among others: the aggregate level of expenditures by the various providers of training (e.g., federal, state, and local governments, educational institutions, private-sector businesses), the degree of cooperation among the providers, incentives (or lack of incentives) for providing training, who gets training, and the economic impact of training.4 These are macro-level concerns.” This means that before beginning a training, the company examine each of their employees and everything else from the government that is in charge and the laws that makes them work legally and everything else. In the United States there a few training trends that suggest the time and the money that could be budgeted from a company for the next decade. These contains automation, continuing worker displacement, acquisitions, downsizing.

...Training a Cost or an Investment How do you view training and development in your business? Do you need to quantify and measure it? Is the value you place on developing your staff and management purely monetary or is there a greater benefit to the individual and to the organisation? In a study carried out by the International Institute of Management Development 80% of respondents were unable to quantify the effect of development. Yet millions of pounds are invested, in management development alone, each year in the UK. It just doesn’t add up. It is engrained in all good businesses to test, measure and know their numbers. So why spend millions without knowing the result. So what is the value of training? Many organisations say they now agree that their work force is their greatest asset and so investing in their development is both necessary and worthwhile these organisations place a high value on training. However, some still see training as a necessary interruption to work and productivity and place very little value upon it. The fact is that the value of training is and always has been difficult to measure. However we find that in organisations which place a high perceived value upon development the real benefits are far greater than in those organisations which do not. Changing the perception of training in an organisation is like changing any cultural belief but it can be done by ensuring that the true value of this work is communicated clearly......
