Why You Need A Personal Trainer

Why You Need A Personal Trainer

16If you were visiting a state or a country you had never been to before, would you hire a tour guide?  If you were confused about a certain subject in school like chemistry or math, would you hire a tutor?  The same concept holds true about the gym and your body.  A personal trainer’s job is to help you to understand how to do certain exercises properly, to motivate you to push those extra few reps, and to educate you on what you may or may not be doing that is preventing you from reaching your fitness goals. Still, there are individuals who shy away from seeking the expertise of a personal trainer unsure of what they’ll get from the experience or whether it’s worth the money. There are a number of reasons why people looking to get in shape should hire a personal trainer.  Here are just a few of them.

1. You Don’t Know Where To Begin

Knowing how to set up a routine that incorporates all the activities you need to do such as cardio, strength training, body fat testing can be a bit overwhelming. Not to mention the amount of time that should be dedicated to doing these activities or choosing the exercises that would be most beneficial for your body type, which weights to use, number of reps, sets, you may quit before you even start. This is where a personal trainer can be invaluable. He can help you maximize your time while keeping you within your limits so you don’t overdo it and become over-trained or worse, injure yourself. He can also help you set goals and create specific schedules so you know when, how and where you’ll fit in your workouts to see the maximum results.

2. You’re Not Seeing Results

If you’ve been working out consistently for several weeks, months, or even years and aren’t seeing the results you want or even progress towards those goals you set hiring a personal trainer may be what you need. A trainer can assess your current program and eating habits and help you see where you could make changes to create more effective workouts. A trainer can ensure the goals you’ve set are realistic for you, hold you accountable for your workouts and help you stay motivated. You may even find that you are seeing results, just not in the way you expected, take advantage of the expertise a personal trainer can provide.

3. You’re Bored With Your Current Routine

A trainer can bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to challenge both your body and your mind. A trainer can motivate you to push past those self-imposed limits, encouraging you to get in those few extra reps, go longer and challenge yourself more than you would on your own. You’ll find it’s very hard to slack off with a trainer standing over you, telling you to do just…one…more…rep! You may even find hidden strengths you never knew you had, which can motivate you even more.

4. You Want motivation And Support During Your Workouts

Some people know how to exercise and they even know how to do the exercises with proper form, but they like having a trainer around for support and motivation. If you’re lifting very heavy weights and need a spot, working with a trainer might be a good choice for you.
