3 Ways Personal Trainers Can Speed Up Your Rehabilitation


You made good progress with the physical therapy sessions provided by your insurance, but now you’re on your own to get the last bit back to your pre-surgery state. Your therapist gave you an exercise program for at-home use, with images and video links to help you correctly perform the exercises. You’ve already reached 85 percent, and it’s time to get to where you were before the surgery.


This is where a personal trainer can greatly help.


Personal trainers can use their expertise in exercise physiology to help you stay injury-free by developing an individualized exercise program. Here are three ways they speed up your rehabilitation and get you back to 100 percent!




Personal trainers understand how the human body works. They know how different body parts are connected and can help you understand how those connections can help your body recover from injuries. They can use their knowledge to help you return to optimal physical health faster and more efficiently.


Recovering from an injury can be tough and uncomfortable, especially when engaging in rehabilitation exercises alone. Having a personal trainer can make the process easier. They can help by introducing new forms of exercise, such as cross-training, to keep the rehabilitation process interesting and engaging.


Cross-training is a great way to keep your body fit and healthy. Working with a Personal Trainer on exercises specific to your injury or area of concern can make a huge difference. It helps improve your overall fitness level while stabilizing the affected area. This can be done through various exercises, such as agility drills to strengthen ankles, core stability work to strengthen backs, and upper back exercises to improve posture. 


By implementing a cross-training routine, you will achieve greater fitness and help your body heal faster.


Injury Management


Recovering from an injury is a difficult and tedious journey. It is easy to want to rush the healing process, but it’s important to be patient and not push yourself too hard. Taking two steps forward is great progress, but avoiding taking a long slide back is important.


By hiring a personal trainer, you can reap the benefits of having someone there to help you along your journey to recovery. They will motivate you to stay on track, keep you safe while exercising, and provide guidance to reach your goals promptly.



Personal trainers play an important part in helping individuals recover from injuries by providing guidance and supervision for exercise. Not only do they focus on the physical aspects of rehabilitation, but they also work to educate and motivate their clients to ensure that the psychological and emotional components of recovery are addressed.


Kinesiophobia can be a real obstacle for those who want to return to normal activities. A professional personal trainer can provide comfort and assurance that the right movements and weights are used. With the help of an expert, accessory muscles can be strengthened as well, helping to stabilize the area and preventing further injury.


In Closing


While you can recover from a minor or major injury without help from a personal trainer, it isn’t guaranteed you’ll be back to 100 percent by the end of your rehabilitation. Working with a personal trainer is much better since their methods can lead to holistic healing when all is said and done.

Chad has been my personal trainer for over 10 years.  He is very dedicated and resourceful as a trainer.  I would highly recommend Chad.  He has kept my body healthy through all these years and in my 50s. Chad is also very accommodating to working with your schedule. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

I love working out with Chad! I have been working out with him for the past year and a half and have had the best results compared with other trainers. Chad’s dedication to his clients, humor, warmth and expertise are a winning combination. I look forward to our sessions and always leave feeling stronger, more flexible and energetic. I highly recommend Chad.

I have been working with Chad (the trainer) for almost three years now and have gone through an amazing transformation! He bonds greatly with his clients and is a very qualified trainer. He tailors workouts to individual clients and has helped me perform better as an equestrian and achieve my physique goals. If you are looking for a great one-on-one trainer, I would highly recommend.

When I started going to the fit factor I went in thinking I had a pretty good knowledge of weight lifting and exercise without having much to improve. I was so wrong! Chad was incredible and really took the time to explain and show proper technique as well as a variety of different exercises that I had never done before. I now have much more confidence in my form and have a really great and well rounded routine. Additionally, Chad catered to my personal goals and really listened to what I wanted to accomplish. I cannot recommend The fit factor and Chad enough!

I have been weight lifting for over five years but have never had dedicated instruction from a trainer. Chad was able to notice where my form was failing and correct it immediately. He also guided me towards effective exercises so that I could keep achieving my goals and moving up. After a couple of months of working with him I was able to see some great results. Chad knows his stuff!

Jonas Escobedo

Chad has been great with not only the types of specialized workouts each session but also with checking in after the sessions. He has a real passion for seeing people make big health changes; which makes it fun. Would highly recommend!

I went to Chad looking to get back in shape and lose weight, which had crept up from working long hours. Chad was super patient and non-judgmental. We started at a level where I would see results but not get so sore or so disappointed at what I could not do it. He focused on what I could do if I pushed myself hard and taught me that step/skill building was an integral part of the process. We also talked about nutrition and self-care. As other reviews have mentioned, he cares about his clients beyond the appointment time, and wants them to make positive change to their lives that will stick. I lost 30+ pounds and I am in the best shape of my life. I have been able to maintain this for 2 years. He taught me how to create a sustainable workout plan. Even during the pandemic I was able to maintain my weight and my fitness level thanks for his frequent check-ins and the solid fitness base we created through his work and fitness mentorship. I highly recommend him!

I started with Chad in August 2020, my first semester of college was cancelled and i needed something active to do. At that point I was a small underweight kid looking to gain muscle and gain weight. I went to Chad 3 times a week until late January 2021. Those 5 months were great, I really enjoyed going to chad and it was the highlight of my week and something I would look forward to going to 3 times every week. Throughout this time Chad has perfected my form on workouts and had a great and unique workout for me everytime. I went in weighing 125 pounds at 5’10 and now I weigh 150 pounds after the five months. Not only did Chad give workouts but he also gave me a diet for me to follow so I could maximize my time with him. He really personalizes workouts for each person. Currently i’m in the best shape of my life and am super confident in my body. GO TO FIT-FACTOR!!
