The Gymstick can be used in one-on-one personal training sessions. The advantage a Gymstick offers is that the trainer is playing a more active role, as they are effectively controlling the level of resistance, coordination, balance and proprioception provided to the client. With each exercise, this can be increased or decreased according to the intensity required. The trainer receives kinaesthetic feedback, which assists in appreciating the level of challenge that the client is undergoing – more so than with free weights. The greatest advantage that the Gymstick provides a personal trainer is ability to coach whilst conducting the training because of the interactive involvement between trainer and client.
