Are personal trainers able to help me with my strength and cardio programs?

Yes. With the proper assessments, certified personal trainers are fully capable of creating individualized strength and cardiovascular programs. Basic assessments for your posture, functional movement patterns, and cardiorespiratory fitness will provide the personal trainer with a snapshot of your current fitness level. The results will direct the professional as they design your workout program and also serve as a baseline for future progress measurements. Some certified personal trainers also have advanced specializations that enable them to modify basic strength and cardio programs to suit almost any individual. Seeking a personal trainer with an advanced specialization such as corrective exercise or performance enhancement is recommended for anyone with special needs beyond the common goals of losing weight and general fitness.

That's a big yes.  Personal trainers are able to create, adjust and modify any strength and cardio program you may have. That is the primary job of a personal trainer.

Yes. A personal trainer is able to help you with your strength and cardio programs.

It will also help to keep from getting bored with the same routine you have been doing.
