Personal Trainers in Burke, VA
Rebekah Bickham grew up in Austin, TX, running in track and field, tumbling, and cheerleading.
Her passion for strength training flourished in high school. She took nutrition and anatomy-physiology courses at her local community college to begin her career path toward becoming a Registered Nurse.
As high school graduation got closer, Rebekah realized she would also leave behind her sports programs where she had the accountability of practices and a coach.
Despite her athletic background, Rebekah found herself clueless and intimidated in a gym setting.
“I started to read, watch videos, and learn as much as I could about strength training so that I could be sure that I was training myself properly.”
During this time, her mother began working with a personal trainer and Rebekah would frequently tag along and get trained alongside her.
The experience of being coached by a trainer made her realize she also wanted to train people, and most importantly, teach them how to lift weights safely and properly with confidence.
Years of running track, cheerleading, and tumbling impact on Rebekah’s joints resulted in chronic knee pain. Although the pain got better when she stopped running, it would still creep in whenever she would squat and do traditional weight training.
“I was never truly able to exercise my legs the way I wanted to without having knee pain until I started doing Slow-Motion Strength Training.”
After only 2-3 months of consistently doing slow-motion workouts, Rebekah was able to properly strengthen her legs to help support her knees. Now, she’s able to push over double her body weight on the Leg Press without any knee pain during and after the workouts.
“I don't get any pain anymore when I work out, which is unheard of. That hasn't happened since before high school.”
After experiencing her own personal journey with slow-motion strength training, Rebekah knew this was the method she was meant to share with others.
Rebekah was selected to join The Perfect Workout’s team of trainers and went through an extensive certification process. Now, she manages the Burke studio where she also trains clients 1-on-1.
“My favorite part about working with clients is the fact that I am able to share my passions about health and fitness with others every single day.”
Getting the opportunity to walk alongside clients and find what works best for them, their goals, and work around any limitations they might have is what drives Rebekah. She’s always pushing to learn more so she can use that knowledge to help support her clients no matter where they are in their fitness journey.
“I truly believe in this workout and I love being able to share with others how they can improve their quality of life just by coming in twice a week for 20 minutes!”
Alan’s personal fitness journey began in 2014 when he immersed himself in the world of nutrition and exercise. After coaching kids’ sports for 6 years he began training friends and family members while he learned as much as he could about how the human body adapts to exercise.
During this time Alan’s mom suffered a sudden heart attack at just 40 years old due to a lack of exercise & poor eating habits. Alan began helping her on her own fitness and health journey, and his future career in Personal Training began. “I became a personal trainer because I want to help people live a longer, better, healthier life! My mom was the motivation behind it all!”
Alan did extensive exercise research and experimented with many workouts until he found Slow-Motion Strength training. Within a month of utilizing the method we use at The Perfect Workout and following a nutrition plan, he gained visible muscle throughout his entire body and lost a lot of body fat. “I look very lean!”
Now, as a Certified Personal Trainer at The Perfect Workout, Alan gets to work closely with his members to help them make some of those same healthy changes in their lives. He believes the best thing about 1-on-1 personal training is the relationships he builds with his members. Their goals become his goals.
"I have a member who was very limited in her range of motion on her legs and had weak muscles in that area when she first started. Since then her range of motion has increased and so have her weights. We are working well together and going at a slow pace that she feels comfortable with. She's very happy with her results and has even called me a magician because of how far we've come!”
“I love what I do. I train my members hard, but also pay attention to all the tiny details so we can maximize results.”
