Finding a qualified Kansas City personal trainer is not as easy as it seems. According to Women’s Health Magazine, trainers do not need to meet any federal or state licensing requirements. They do not need college degrees or professional certifications to practice. They sometimes have as little training as 30 minutes of online computer work – and yet, they are giving local residents advice that could potentially harm one’s health. Finding a qualified personal trainer is extremely important, especially for people who are trying to lose weight safely and receive counsel on any medical conditions they may have.
Jamie Plunkett has set the bar higher by opening a new Kansas City personal training studio on West 135th Street in Overland Park. This will be the home of Jamie Plunkett Fitness personal training (which includes hour-long workouts, 2-3 times per week) and also the home of the Jamie Plunkett Fitness Boot Camp 360 KC (which meets for an hour, 3 times per week.) All programs offer resistance training, cardiovascular training and nutrition coaching. While people of all shapes and sizes frequent the new club, Jamie’s particular specialization is in weight loss through education, motivation and empowerment.
“My client-only facility is an exclusive studio, where we invest considerable attention and educational resources into every individual. We guarantee results because we have such great faith in our time-tested training methods and faith in our great clients as well. We understand that calorie-counting and denying yourself all your favorite foods can be hard, so we focus our nutrition coaching more on diversity, eating the right macro-nutrients and finding better ways to feel full rather than overeating.”
Jamie Plunkett first became interested in fitness during his senior year high school, when he began to educate himself in an effort to lose weight. While he was in college, he was able to lose 30 percent body fat – and he was sold on the power of personal training for life! He graduated in 2004 with a B.S. in Health Science Promotion from Emporia State University. He holds the industry’s top two certifications: Certified Health Fitness Instructor (American College of Sports Medicine) and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (National Strength and Conditioning Association). He worked in the Rockefeller Center sports club in NY and the Lawrence Athletic Club before opening his own personal training studio in Kansas City.
