Personal training is a great way to enter the fitness world or take your existing training program much further with the assistance of a fully qualified personal trainer.
Here are 10 great reasons to consider hiring a personal trainer*:
1. You See No Results
You have been working hard, exercising and watching what you eat, yet you are not seeing any results. Hiring a personal trainer will help you to evaluate what you are currently doing and help you work towards your goals through exercise and nutrition. The trainer can show you were you might want to make changes in your current program and suggest options that will help you get closer to your goals without the stress of not seeing results.
2. You Don’t Know Where to Begin
You want to work out; you want to eat healthy, but you are just not sure what to do or how to do it. Personal trainers help you start a safe and effective fitness program that will progressively help you build muscle and strength and will help you determine what your goals are and how to reach those goals in a timely manor without getting seriously hurt.
3. Your Workout is Boring
You’ve been working out for months doing the same routine and it is getting harder to get to the gym because you are bored of doing the same workouts every week. Personal trainers can teach you fun ways to change your program to make it more enjoyable and teach you new exercises that will help you maximize your results.
4. You Are Not Challenged
When working alone, we all find ways to make what we are doing a little easier. We cheat ourselves and are left feeling that we haven’t challenged our bodies as we should have. Personal Trainers can push you to limits that you never thought possible to ensure that you are working to the fullest extent. Personal Trainers bring you to the next level of your fitness journey.
5. You Want to Learn How to Exercise on Your Own
For most of us, working with a Personal Trainer is a luxury, but we’d like to learn how to exercise on our own. Personal Trainers design a program that is based on your fitness goals; then, when you are feeling comfortable enough with your program, you can take it with you and know that you are doing the exercise correctly because your trainer has monitored each phase of your workout.
6. You Need to be Motivated and Accountable
You have tried to exercise in the past and usually start out motivated and excited; however, a few weeks go by and life happens. Your motivation lessens. When you train with a Certified Personal Trainer, your routine is anything but routine. Because you schedule your appointments in advance, you know that cancelling an appointment will inconvenience your trainer and cost you money. Personal trainers keep you motivated and accountable because they show you results.
7. You Have Physical Limitations Due to Illness or Injury
Most personal trainers are trained to deal with physical limitations. When looking for a personal trainer, check their qualifications. Make sure that they can work within their scope of practice and can work with any physical limitations you may have.
8. You’re Training for a Sports Event
Working with a personal trainer to become better at your event is the smartest, most time-efficient way of getting into optimal shape for your specific sport. Trainers look at the sport you play and break it down to what you will need to be stronger in that sport. For example: basketball players need to be quick, be able to jump, and have good upper-body strength and lower-body agility. Working with a personal trainer will make you stronger by making you quick, fast, and efficient at handling the ball and the court.
9. You Want Supervision During Workouts
Personal trainers watch over you and make sure you don’t put yourself at risk of injury. They make sure you are working at the proper level and using the correct amount of weight.
10. You Want to Workout at Home
Some personal trainers even come to your home! A trainer can design a fitness program based on your individual goals and the type of equipment you have at your home.
