Everyone has their different reasons for wanting a fitter, healthier body

There is abundant of evidence supporting the health benefits of physical activity and a balanced diet

The incorporation of exercise as a consistent lifestyle behaviour is not easy for many individuals because of poor exercise tolerance and enjoyment.

The image of a personal trainer yelling and pushing his clients until near collapse may scare some people away from hiring a trainer, but the benefits of using a personal trainer should be considered carefully. While some in the field provide “tough love” motivation, personal trainers typically work with clients in a non-threatening way, helping them to achieve specific fitness goals. Understanding the potential benefits of a personal trainer can help you decide.

Goal Achievement

A personal trainer helps you define your fitness goals. They takes into account your current fitness level and discusses what you want to achieve through your workouts. While you may have some idea of the goals you want to set, a professional is able to help you break them down into smaller goals that are specific and realistic. The personal trainer also helps assess your progress toward those goals.

 

Personalised Workout

Personal trainers create a specific workout plan just for you based on what you want to achieve. The personalised plan typically gives you better results than a general workout plan. Because he knows your physical condition and medical background, he is able to make accommodations to the program to fit your needs.

A professional trainer teaches you the proper way to perform each exercise movement in your routine. They often demonstrate the movement and watches you perform it so they can correct any issues with your posture or technique. Learning how to perform exercises properly reduces your risk of injury. You also will be able to do the exercises on your own at home or at the gym after getting professional fitness instruction.

 

Motivation

Motivation is often difficult to maintain when you exercise on your own. Regular sessions with a personal trainer enhance your motivation to continue with a workout regimen. Even if you don’t use a personal trainer for every session, knowing that you’ll meet with your trainer soon will motivate you during workouts. You also get the satisfaction of showing your trainer the improvement you’ve made as your exercise program proceeds.

 

Accountability

When you exercise on your own, it is easier to skip a session here and there or fall off the wagon completely since there’s no one to hold you accountable for you actions. When you work with a trainer, he keeps you accountable, making it more likely that you’ll stick with your training program.

 

Variety

An experienced trainer teaches you a variety of exercise methods, which can keep you from getting bored. Also, if a specific exercise does not work for you, the trainer can change it to one that suits you better and provides the same physical benefits. Trainers also help you to make adjustments as your fitness level improves to ensure continued progress.

 

Efficiency

A professional personal trainer is able to make the most of your workout time, which increases the efficiency of your exercise program. This is especially beneficial when you have a limited amount of time to exercise. For example, if you have to cut your 1-hour training session short one day, your trainer can complete a routine with you that burns the same number of calories and provides the same physical benefits in half the time.
