There are so many ways that a personal trainer can be beneficial to your
health and fitness program. It is very understandable that prior to initiating a
program, you may have some hesitation or questions regarding personal training.
So how can a personal trainer help you? Let's take a look at four ways in which
a personal trainer can help.
Accountability. One of the most common reasons why our clients prefer to work with a personal trainer is accountability. Many of our clients have had numerous gym memberships in the past. Not only did they feel like they wasted money, but they felt like there was no accountability. It is very easy at the end of the day not to make it to the gym, however, the gym is not going to call you and ask you where you are. Thus there is no accountability.
Consistency. When you work with a personal trainer, your training is going to be based on appointment, so you know for certain on those days you will be getting your workout in. Not only that, but our personal trainers on staff will also give you a program to follow when you're not working with them. Many times they will text you on those days to make sure you're getting your workouts in. So as you can see, when you're working with an instructor you're going to have consistency with your plan.
Proper form. Proper form is very important when engaging in a fitness plan. Reason being, if your form is not done correctly, you run the risk of injuring yourself and obviously not achieving the results that you're looking for. If the muscles aren't stimulated correctly, you will be wasting time and will become frustrated with your lack of results. By using the correct form, you will trigger the muscles optimally thus yielding great results.
It's different. A very common reason why our clients enjoy our program is because it's different. We very often get stuck in the same routine, and the same types of exercise. Whether it's walking on the treadmill, or lifting weights, we have a tendency to learn the routine and always repeat that routine. This becomes inefficient because when your body gets used to your current routine it has no reason to change. Plus you will hit a plateau. By working with a professional they will introduce different routines which will not only make working out more fun, but will shock your body into further progress.
So as you can see from the reasons above, working with an in-home personal trainer can be very beneficial.
