Use A Personal Trainer?
Maintain motivation in your exercise
One of the main reasons people benefit from a personal trainer is that they lose motivation
to stick with a consistent exercise program. Certified personal trainers can provide structure and progression, and help you
develop a lifestyle that encourages health.
A tailored program for your level of fitness and body shape
If you have any chronic health conditions, injuries
or specific training goals (running a marathon, for example) a trainer will work with you and your health care provider to
plan a safe and effective program that considers these needs and enables you to reach your health goals.
Focus your energy
Personal trainers help you
focus on results and stop wasting your time doing inefficient workouts. A personal trainer has a plan and
will help you get maximum results in minimum time.
Improve technique to have a greater impact
The trainer will ensure your posture is correct whilst
exercising so that you are working the intended muscles and that you are completing the exercise in accordance with
you own biomechanics.
You are new to exercise
If you are an absolute beginner, a personal trainer will introduce you to a very simple and effective
routine so you start seeing results and feeling the benefits very quickly. A good trainer will then build on your strengths
and help balance your weaknesses so before you know it, you're growing in confidence and achieving more than
you ever thought possible.
Break through a plateau
Ok, you are already in pretty decent shape, but you've been there for years. If you are
stuck in the same routine and want to break out of a rut, a personal trainer is the perfect solution. A trainer reinvigorate
your routine and motivation.
Learn how to go it alone
If you ultimately want to learn all the facets of designing your own routines so you don't
need to use a personal trainer, attending session with a trainer for a few months may be all you need. All good
personal trainers will teach you the basics of building and modifying a fitness program to achieve maximum results in a safe
and sustainable way.
A personal trainer analyses your form 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 pain or give up
too soon. Because a personal trainer can watch what you are doing while you are doing it, they can help push you, slow you
down and correct you as necessary.
Workout at home
Many personal trainers make house calls. If you don't have the inclination
or interest in going to a gym, but have a hard time knowing what to do on your own at home or the motivation, a personal trainer
can bring fitness into your living room.
There is a good reason that the number one reason people hire personal trainers is to
lose weight and get into shape -- it works. If you made a resolution to lose the fat and build the muscle, a trainer can keep
you on track and help you realise that goal.
