One of the main reasons people benefit from a personal trainer
is that they loss motivation to stick with a consistent
exercise program. Certified personal trainers can provide
structure and accountability, and help you develop a lifestyle
that encourages health.
If you have any chronic health conditions, injuries or training
goals (running a marathon, for example) a trainer will work
with you and your health care provider to plan a safe, efficient
program that considers these needs and enable you to reach
your health goals.
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
Improve technical skills
If you play a particular sport, the right personal trainer
will help you improve your skill by showing you new training
techniques specific to your sport. The Trainer will incorporate
skills training into your program so you improve not only
your strength and endurance, but your agility and mental
focus as well.
You are new to exercise
If you are an absolute beginner, a personal trainer is the
ultimate fitness coach. A good trainer will introduce you
to a very simple, effective routine and build efficiently
so before you know it, you have the confidence and knowledge
to decide what is right for you.
Break through plateaus
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 will jump start, not only your motivation,
but your routine as well.
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,
going 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.
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 personal trainer can watch what
you are doing while you are doing it, they can help push
you or slow you down as necessary.
Workout at home
Many personal trainers make house calls. If you don't have
the type or interest in going to a gym, but have a hard
time knowing what to do on your own at home, 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 realize that goal.
