The state of Colorado has always enjoyed a reputation as being an extremely healthy place. In 2016 Colorado was names the fittest state in the country by Fitness magazine, and the National Health Institute has stated that Colorado has few cases of obesity in the nation. Colorado has become a kind of role model for how the rest of the country should be approaching our current health epidemic. Aside from enjoying a rich culture of outdoor activities, Colorado is also one of the places in which personal trainers are most popular. Personal training in Denver has become so much a part of daily life for so many residents that personal trainers from other states have started moving to Denver in order to fill the ever growing demand for personal training services. In this article we are going to take a closer look at the popularity of personal trainers in Denver and try to identify the main reasons why they are so popular there.
When you think of places that have a culture of beauty, you would probably think of beach cities like Miami or LA, but Denver isn’t far behind when it comes to people’s search for physical excellence. A major Denver gym, www.matrixfitnessandspa.com, recently conducted a survey of their gym members in order to find out what their primary motivating factor was for having a personal trainer. While there were a good number of people that stated their main reason for using a personal trainer was to improve their overall health, the majority of folks actually stated they used a personal trainer because they wanted to look their best. Part of Denver’s culture of beauty might be attributed to the fact that people in other areas of the country think of Colorado as having really good looking and fit people, which in turn might cause people in Colorado to seek to meet that expectation. The state of Colorado has put out as many beauty pageant winners over the last twenty years as any other place in the country, and a number of high profile actors are from Colorado. It may be debatable as to whether or not a culture so concerned with physical beauty is a good thing, but the fact gym memberships in Colorado are so high, certainly means that people in the Rocky state are apt to be healthier.
Personal training in Denver is also more common than in other parts of the country because of the fact that it is cheaper to have a personal trainer in Colorado than in most other areas. For many folks outside of Colorado, the idea of having a personal trainer may seem like something for just the wealthier people, but in Denver the culture of personal trainers is so strong that there are personal trainers for all different budgets. People in Colorado that can’t afford to pay for a personal trainer to have one on one classes can always ban together with a group of friends and hire a personal trainer to give them group fitness classes.
