Why hire a Personal Trainer
The reason you are reading this is probably because you are thinking of hiring a personal trainer, but what exactly can a PT do for you?
Let me see if I can help you out with this 🙂 and list just a few benefits & reasons for hiring a personal trainer:
1. You want to work out at home
Not many people like going to the gym and they choose to work at home instead but don’t know where to start. The lack of equipment or knowledge of using it, makes it difficult to get you starting. A PT can help you with that and show you exactly what to do and how to do it in a safe way, the latest being the most important part of exercising. After only a few session, you will be able to create your own work out without the need of paying for a PT 🙂
Do you know you can have a complete body workout without the need of any equipment but using your own body weight?
2. You want to tone-up or lose weight but cannot motivate yourself
Another good reason to hire a PT. We, sometimes, need to be motivated to do something and that includes exercising. We want to do it so bad, but can’t seem to find the right time. Saying that, if we have an appointment made in advance we always manage to keep it even in the most busiest days and that’s where a PT comes in. He will be there in time, every time.
3. You want supervision and support during workouts
Some people know how to exercise and they even know how to do the exercises correctly, but they like having a personal trainer around for support and supervision.
If you’re lifting very heavy weights or need someone to help with partner-type exercises, working with a trainer might be a good choice for you.
He can spot you during workouts and help you come up with a good training plan for your goals.
4. You have a particular injury, illness or condition
A personal trainer can find the right exercise for your workout helping you heal your injuries and avoid further problems. Also a PT can work very closely with your doctor or physical therapist for the best experience and safe exercising.
5. You need to be challenged
Sometimes, you tend to slack off on your workouts, especially when things get tough. A PT’s role is to be there to motivate you to push past those limits, encouraging you to challenge yourself more than you would on your own, but in a safe way.
6. You are working out but not seeing any results
After working out a few weeks or months and aren’t seeing any results or failed to lose weight, hiring a PT may be a good choice. He/she can look and analyse your current program and eating habits helping you make changes and design a more effective workout. Also you may find that you are getting results, but aren’t in the way you expected. A PT sometimes can see these results more clearly from the outside.
7. You are totally new to exercise
If you are an absolute beginner, a personal trainer is the ultimate fitness coach. Save yourself alot of wasted time and ineffective effort and frustration by having a program designed by a personal trainer. Not only will you gain strength and lose weight more quickly, but you will do it safely and with an understanding of what you are doing each step of the way. You will be able to go into any gym with confidence that you know what you are doing.
8. Break through plateaus
Perhaps you are in a very good shape already, but you haven’t been able to progress much in the last few weeks. If you are stuck in the same routine and want to break through your plateau, a personal trainer is the perfect solution. He will jump start, not only your motivation, but your routine as well.
9. Workout Safely
This should be number 1 reason but I’ll stick it here for the moment 🙂
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 pain or give up too soon. Because a trainer watches what you are doing while you are doing it, they can help push you or slow you down as necessary.
10. Weight Loss
The number one reason people hire personal trainers is to lose weight and get into shape because, well…it works. If you made a resolution to lose the fat and build muscle / tone-up, a personal trainer can keep you on track and help you realize that goal.
