There are so much information online, free workouts, free recipes, and nutrition advice. Why hire a personal trainer? Can you loose weight and get healthy without a trainer? Sure you can and I’m sure you would do fabulous. Below are my top reasons why you should higher a personal trainer.
Perhaps the single, biggest benefit of hiring a trainer is motivation. On your own, people lose motivation to stick with a consistent exercise program. A Certified fitness trainer can provide structure, direction, accountability as well as be a friend who is interested in helping you succeed.
2. Individualized program
Everyone’s body is different and we all carry fat in different areas and hold water differently. We also all have different goals. A personal trainer will design a customized fitness plan to help you achieve your overall goal.
The job of a personal trainer is to keep you focused on results. No wasted, ineffectual workouts. A personal trainer will make a plan to will help you get maximum results in minimum time.
4. Improve technical skills
Every profession has its specialists and a trainer who specializes in sports-specific training will help you improve your skills by showing you new training techniques specific to your sport. Whether it is golf, hockey, baseball, long distance running, or whatever…your Trainer will incorporate skills training into your program to improve not only your strength and endurance, but your agility and mental focus as well.
5. You are new to exercise
If you are an absolute beginner, a personal trainer is the ultimate fitness coach. Save yourself a lot of wasted time and ineffective effort and frustration by having a program designed by a trainer. Not only will you gain strength and lose fat 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.
6. Break through plateaus
Perhaps you are in fairly good shape already, but you haven’t been able to progress beyond a certain point. If you are stuck in the same routine and want to break out of a rut, a trainer is the perfect solution. A trainer will jump start, not only your motivation, but your routine as well.
7. Learn how to do it alone
If you ultimately want to learn to be able to workout on your own so you don’t need to use a trainer, going for a few months may be all you need. All good trainers will teach you the basics of building and modifying a fitness program to achieve maximum results.
8. Workout Safely
A 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. You will learn the correct way to use equipment, and appropriate form and technique for cardiovascular work and free-weight training.
9. Workout at home
Many trainers make house calls. If you don’t have the time 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.
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 goal to lose the fat and build muscle, a trainer can keep you on track and help you realize that goal.
