Why Work With A Personal Trainer?

Why work with a personal trainer? Why not work with one! Whether you are 18 years of age or 86, in great shape or just starting out, a qualified personal trainer can be one of the best investments you make. I know there are some of you who may be wondering why someone would pay good money to have a ‘gym employee’ show you how to use the machines. You figure there’s nothing in a gym that you can’t do on your own and if you have any questions you can just ask one of the gym members to show you the ropes. Well, you’ve got it all wrong!

I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen over the years on the wrong workout program for their goals. It’s common sense. If you want to get results and make your workouts a success, you need to do the right exercises and more importantly, do them right!april2015-fit-plank  

Personal trainers are experts in the fields of fitness and weight loss and they are your go to when you are looking for assistance with your exercise regimen. Not only will a personal trainer design a customized program specific for your goals, he or she will also show you things to do in the gym that are ‘outside of the box.’ Yes, hiring a personal trainer has a price, but it’s worth every penny if you are truly committed to the process.

Here are a few reasons why a personal trainer is a great investment:

There are many reasons why people hire a personal trainer, but one of the biggest is to have someone help them reach their personal fitness goals. They want someone to hold them accountable when they slip up, monitor their progress along the way, and keep them motivated when they are having trouble staying committed to a consistent exercise program.

Individualized program
A personal trainer has a
plan and will help you get maximum results in minimum time. No matter what your goals are, your trainer will show you the proper way to warm up, the correct amount of weight or intensity to use for each exercise, the precise number of repetitions and sets of an exercise to perform, and the most efficient ways (durations and intensities) to do cardio. They will also show you how to properly cool down and stretch after each workout to help improve flexibility and decrease your muscle stiffness and soreness after workouts.

Break through plateaus
Ok, you are already in pretty decent shape, but you’ve had the same physique forever! If you’ve been doing the same workout for years and are looking for better results, a personal trainerapril2015-fit-lady is your perfect solution. He or she will revamp your workout routine and get you back on track to reach your personal fitness goals.

Learn how to do it alone
I can speak on behave of most personal trainers when I say we want to believe that you will need us forever. However, the truth is, if you ultimately want to learn all the facets of designing your own routines so you don’t have to depend on one of us for the rest of your life, a few months of sessions may be all you need. Every good personal trainer will teach you the basics of building and modifying a fitness program to achieve maximum results.

Workout Safely
A personal trainer watches your form, monitors your vitals, and can provide objective feedback about your limits and strengths. Most of us tend to ignore some of the subtle signals our body provides. We either push through the pain or give up before we’ve started. A personal trainer will watch what you are doing while you are doing it, so they can help push you or slow you down when necessary.

Lose Weight
The number one reason people hire a personal trainer is to lose weight. Yes, the good old fashioned hustle and bustle under the supervision of a fitness professional really does work. You do have a choice. You can throw in the towel, or use it to wipe the sweat off your face!

You Will Show Up

Making the decision to follow through and actually purchase sessions with a personal trainer is a BIG DEAL for some people. For many, there is a significant amount of hesitation and even a bit of last minute anxiety. This is because you know once you’ve signed on the dotted line, there is no turning back. To put your mind at ease I can tell you this. You will be less likely to skip a workout if you have a paid, scheduled appointment!

Focus on Your Unique Health Concerns

Fifty percent of personal trainer’s clients have health related disorders due to arthritis, diabetes, or obesity. Others suffer from chronic low-back pain, need rehabilitation from an injury, or are seeking pre/postnatal training. A fitness professional will not only get you moving to help with all or any of these; they will also adjust your diet regimen to help reduce or get you off some of your medications. He or she can also work closely with your physician, physical therapist, or other health care providers to plan a safe, efficient program that will speed your recovery and allow your too reach your goals.

In Conclusion:

Working with a personal trainer is one of the fastest, easiest, most successful ways to improve your health and fitness. They are not just do-this-and-do-that people. They are your personal confidant when it comes to your fitness and general health. They will motivate you when they notice you are losing interest, inspire you when you forget why you started, and encourage you to lead a healthier lifestyle.

How do I know what all of the benefits of working with a personal trainer are? Well, because I am one, and I’ve seen a lot of life-changing transformations over the years.

With the right personal trainer, you can find the exercise program that works best for you and enjoy the experience of developing a lifestyle that places a high priority on health and activity. Good luck to you.
