5 Reasons to Hire a personal trainer
Is Personal training worth the value? Why do I need to have a personal trainer if I’m not overweight?
Is Personal Training a luxury service only?
These are a few questions that I have heard in the last 10 years as a Personal Trainer.
I’m here to tell you that hiring a Qualified and Experienced Personal Trainer who is dedicated to you obtaining results, can be one of the best investments you have ever made!
Here is why …………………….
A Personal Trainer can be looked at as your Fitness Mentor. To enhance your knowledge of fitness and successfully achieve your goals, you will need professional guidance.
When you look at successful people in our known world, there is usually some form of Coach, leader or influencer throughout different phases of their life that helped push them further and closer toward their goals.
Whether you are a Financial Guy on Wall Street, Professional Basketball Player in the NBA, Navy Seal, or an Up and coming Physician at some point in your career you will need guidance and feedback from an experienced individual.
People……… we all need someone outside of our self to challenge us and push us to our greatest potential!
A mentor is there to teach you specific skills that he/she has already acquired through personal experience, which in turn saves you time from potential mistakes.
They are also in your corner giving you feedback on areas of improvement, point out weaknesses/strengths, and deliver the advice you need during moments of confusion.
As well as being there to motivate you to be the best you can be.
Quality, Experienced Personal Trainers will do the same for you in the fitness field. They are your mentors to teach proper movement mechanics.
Show you How to develop a customized program directly aligned with your goals. Educate you about the importance of strength training.
Hold you accountable for your long-term goals and encourage you to execute small tasks along the way.
Now if the greatest athletes, businessmen, and Medical Doctors all have used a mentor figure to take them to the next level, don’t you think it’s a good idea for yourself to do the same when it comes to Fitness ??
Fitness is a major part of our overall health, and nothing is more important than your knowledge to be healthy and fit.
When you start with a new exercise plan to create your dream body ( generally on the day after New Years), you are all excited and jacked up the first few weeks.
After a month or so, the fire tends to wear down.
Especially after long days of work, or family drama, etc.
During these times of confusion in your life, it’s easy to lose track and get out of routine.
Personal trainers are the perfect teammate to help you keep motivated when your energy is low.
Trainers are there to keep pushing you and hold you accountable to show up at times when your first thought might be to stay home and do nothing.
Having support from a Trainer who is consistently checking in on you during the day to make sure you’re eating clean or resting enough, makes a big difference in your commitment towards your goals.
I have had many clients in the past that have told me to my face on a few occasions;
“if you were not here waiting for me then I would not have exercised today, and I’m so glad I came “.
It’s important to look at the Hiring of a personal trainer as an investment into yourself.
Spending Money for service to learn through experience on how to exercise safely and correctly is essential to remaining fit into your later years.
“Invest in yourself now and reap the dividends day after month after year. “ –Jack Lalanne
Health Is Wealth……..
Nothing is more important than taking care of your health inside and out. NO matter how much money you have, it’s not possible to buy more time on this earth.
The best thing to do is to invest in the health of your body and mind.
Hiring a personal trainer is an investment not only for the service of actual personal training sessions but the education and knowledge as well.
Personally going through specific exercises and training routines are priceless.
If you continue to practice and apply these principles, it will stay with you for a lifetime!!
It sounds like a good Return On Investment (ROI) to me.
- Progress Tracking
Once you begin an exercise routine on your own it usually starts with a bang! A Lot of times this journey begins around January.
What happens in the following 2 months changes slightly. Workouts become redundant, it becomes more of a struggle to get to the gym, and then when in the gym you mostly walk and sit around more than you train.
What is missing is a plan that you can follow, customized to your exact needs!
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Most people who start with a gym or in a home training Routine after New years, drop off before February!
A major key to this is that they have no program to follow and do not Progress.
The human body adapts to stress quite efficiently and if you do not progress your training routines every 4-6 weeks you will become stagnant.
One of the major Assets of having a personal trainer is their ability to track your progress then progress your workouts accordingly to how you respond to the training.
This will give you a greater chance to obtain results. With an experienced Trainer in your corner developing customized exercise routines pertained to your goals, reassessing your body fat %, checking weight and daily nutrition will eliminate a lot of confusion and headache.
The fact that a customized routine is set up for you to follow and a coach is there to motivate you and holding you accountable each day almost puts you on autopilot towards your goals!
Striving to accomplish any task is always easier with a team.
Support, Accountability, Motivation, are all variables that are around you within a team environment.
Having a Personal trainer is like having a coach and a teammate.
As a coach, The Trainer is there to outline a plan for you to follow and guide you through the process.
Similar to a teammate the trainer will be able to challenge you to be the best you can be and problem solve any obstacles along the way.
Teammate for support
When you need to be held accountable the trainer is there to make sure that you stay committed. You will have days when your heart’s not in it !!
The best thing to do is show up and not have to think about what training you should so today. As long as you make it to the gym with your trainer, it will guarantee you have a great workout even when you are not at your best.
Your Trainer is also there to motivate you on bad days at work or home, or times when you just don’t feel like exercising.
The funniest thing is, most times when we do not want to work out, are the times when we most need it and appreciate it.
What to eat!
Even beyond exercise, having a Teammate to lay out a plan on what types of food to eat and avoid, as well as hold you accountable to what you consume daily.
Along with showing you what to eat for your specific goals, the Knowledgeable trainer will check up on you during the month and keep you accountable to stay on track with your nutrition plan.
It will make you second guess about grabbing that sugary snack or unhealthy meal if you have to answer to another person . Especially if you paying your own money for it the help ……. Teamwork!
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” – Helen Keller
