Top 5 Benefits of Hiring a Personal Trainer
July 23, 2018
A personal trainer aims to effectively and efficiently help you achieve specific goals without causing injury. Finding the right personal trainer can prove extremely valuable in learning what your body needs and what exercises your body reacts to through someone who has immense knowledge of fitness, alignment and physiology.
According to mensjournal.com – “Working out with a personal trainer increases your fitness-goal success rate by over 30 percent.”
So why do you need a personal trainer?
1. Reduced Chance of Injury
A personal trainer is extremely knowledgable. They know how to get the best out of you, how to push you, without causing serious injury. If you are creating your own fitness routine, you may be keen to push yourself to your limits, not realising that you are doing more damage than good. Let a personal trainer guide you in creating a sustainable fitness plan that will help you achieve your goals without setting you back – recovery can be a slow process!
2. Tailored To Suit Your Needs
Do you have specific fitness goals in mind? A personal trainer will give you focus and one-to-one advice based on your goals, creating a tailored plan that will prove invaluable. This is extremely important if you are recovering from an injury that requires accommodations to be made in terms of the type of exercise or the level of intensity. A realistic and tailored plan can make the difference between success and failure.
Exercising on your own can sometimes be difficult. Having a bad day? Feeling sluggish? Feeling tired? There are various times when you can convince yourself that missing one session won’t hurt! However, having someone to hold you to your actions and make you think twice about skipping a session can help stop the downward spiral, ultimately leading you to fall off the wagon completely. If you find yourself hitting a brick wall or lacking motivation, consider using a personal trainer to keep you on course – even on your worst days!
4. Build Confidence
If you have been unable to exercise for a long period of time, or if you are beginning a fitness plan for the very first time, it can be very daunting. You may not know what you are capable of in terms of your level of fitness or you may be afraid to push your limits in ways that a personal trainer will. Having someone to help you realise your true potential and to set new limits will not only help you to feel good about yourself, but also encourage and motivate you further in your journey. Your goals will seem more attainable with every small step, giving you the confidence to keep moving forward and to believe in yourself.
5. Have fun!
Lastly, having a personal trainer can be fun! They will distract and encourage you when a work out gets tough, constantly reminding you of why you are embarking on a fitness plan. They will provide you with an outlet to express how you feel and enable you to feel confident and optimistic about your goals. Each work out will be about you and a personal trainer wants to make the experience as productive and enjoyable as possible.
