    5 Reasons to Hire a Personal Trainer

    Posted by Sport&Health on Feb 14, 2017 9:53:39 AM

    Not seeing the fitness results you want? Or perhaps you're just starting out and unsure of how to begin? Whether you're new to working out or a fitness veteran, we can all use a little help sometimes. Below are our top five ways enlisting a personal trainer's help can take your training to the next level.  

    Accelerate Your Results

    Not seeing the results you want from your workouts? Let’s face it - there is an overwhelming amount of fitness information out there. A personal trainer can help you determine which workout style is best for your body, fitness level and desired results. This means more efficient workouts - and quicker results!

    And bonus - the new training habits you form, along with your successes, will likely have a trickle-down effect, giving you confidence in other areas of your life. The right motivation and mindset will likely help you reach new milestones in the workplace and personal relationships. 

     

    Hold You Accountable

    Life happens. It’s easy to skip a workout here and there when other life priorities pop up. An accountability partner is going to hold you to your goals and ensure that you are keeping your fitness goals as high of a priority as other areas of your life.  

    Your personal trainer is going to be your biggest fan in the gym. They’ll be waiting for you when you walk in — and disappointed when you don’t show up. They’ll be there to remind you of why you started should you begin to feel overwhelmed by the journey. A great personal trainer will hold you accountable for the goals you’ve set, as well as the fitness and nutrition steps required to achieve them. 

    And let’s not forget the financial investment you are making in yourself. We are naturally more invested when we put ourselves, and our finances, on the line. 

     

    Get Personal

    It sounds obvious, but the biggest benefit of hiring a personal trainer is getting a workout completely personalized to you. Training for a marathon? Your workout and nutrition plan is going to look a LOT different from that of someone wanting to add 10 pounds of muscle to their frame. Even with the same goal, your plan will look very different from someone starting at a different fitness level or with a different body composition. 

    A personal trainer is so much more than someone telling you what to do in the gym. Your trainer is highly specialized and educated in the human body, training techniques and nutrition and is equipped to get you to the finish line much faster than you would likely get there on your own.


    Get it right

    Nothing will halt your fitness progress faster than an injury in the gym. Your personal trainer will ensure proper form and execution to reduce injury risk and help you get the most out of each exercise. There is no guessing as to whether or not you are using the equipment the right way. You’ll get immediate feedback on your form - and the peace of mind that you are performing each move correctly and most efficiently. 

    A great personal trainer will help push you to your limit - but not your breaking point. 


    Beat Workout Boredom

    There's no reason to be doing the same workout, day in and day out. A personal trainer can help you mix it up,  keeping things fresh to ensure you're on track to reaching your goals. In fact, you’ll very rarely do the same workout twice. 

    Your personal trainer will design a program that challenges you to compete against your previous results, introduce you to new moves, and keep things FUN. A variety in pace, equipment and exercises will keep your body guessing - making it stronger and accelerating your results.
