Cancel your gym membership
Cancel your gym membership? What are you talking about Eric, aren't you a personal trainer? Why would you tell me to cancel my gym membership?
Yes, that is correct, I am a personal trainer and have been for over 15 years. However, what I see way too often is people signing up for expensive gym memberships, and never using them. Those gyms will charge your credit card every month automatically for year after year, sometimes without you really even knowing, and you don't end up going. So my advice, is cancel your gym membership. Now shouldn't I be exercising you ask?
Of course! However, let's face it, unless you are working out consistently and on a regular basis, you are going to see no results. If you are not getting to the gym, or are getting their scarcely, then you are just wasting your money. So what do I recommend?
In my opinion, if all of the information above suits you, then your best bet is to hire an in-home personal trainer. What is an in-home personal trainer you ask? Nowadays, personal trainers arenít just at gyms. You can hire a personal trainer to actually come to your home, your office, or even a local park. They will bring the equipment with them and be there to give you a great workout. So how can this be beneficial?
As mentioned earlier, consistency is one of the most important factors in an exercise program. By having an in-home personal trainer, you will have that trainer who will come to your home and keep you consistent with your workouts. Not only that, but they will instill accountability in your program as well. Consistency and accountability are two of the biggest determining factors in an exercise program.
Not only that, but a personal trainer will text you and follow up with you to make sure that you are getting in your workouts when not with them. Unlike gyms, if you don't show up to a gym they aren't going to call you or text you and ask you where you are and why you aren't getting your workout in. This is how a personal trainer, especially an in-home personal trainer, can be of great benefit.
So if you are one of those, who have a gym membership and pay for it month after month but never attends, then my best advice to you would be to hire an in-home personal trainer.
