by Faulkner, Sarah Frances, M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 77; 1504456
Abstract (Summary)

Using a qualitative approach, the purpose of this study was to identify the attitudes and perceptions of members at the Los Altos Family YMCA towards personal training. The focus of this study was to examine the motivations of personal training, the benefits of participating in personal training, the perceived constraints, and the attitudes and perceptions of personal one on one and group training. Through semi-structured, face-to-face interviews the study identified themes for the three research questions presented. The researcher developed a grounded theory model for the motivations of working with a personal trainer and examined its correlation with different theories.
