You Should Hire a Personal Trainer

Be Fit For LifeMotivation – That New Year’s resolution of yours may have been amped you up for a week or two, but motivation does not last, that is why Zig Ziglar recommendeds it daily. Personal trainers wear many hats, serving not only as coach, but as an educator, confidant, role model and a major source of motivation and encouragement as well.
Consistency/Accountability – Get it on your schedule! Don’t squeeze time for your workout! Instead, increase the priority of your workout. Scheduling regular appointments with a personal trainer helps eliminate any excuses you might come up with for not exercising. There are SO MANY excuses and they all are ‘weak sauce’ when your trainer is waiting for you to arrive.
Safety – Many of the exercise machines and equipment at the gym look more like medieval torture devices and you can get a much safer and well rounded workout with free weights or body weight exercises. A personal trainer will show you how to exercise safely and warn you which exercises to avoid.
Diversity in Routines – I know you’re doing the same routine every week on your own. This is why you’re bored with it and you are not feeling and seeing desired results. Switching up your workout routine is paramount to delivering optimum results. Your trainer will not let you down here. There will always be a new and fun exercise to try. You will experience “Muscle Confusion” and you will love it.
Effective Workouts – Efficient utilization of your valuable time is crucial. I know people who hang out at the gym for 3+ hours and have little to show for it. Personal trainers help maximize your time by providing workouts designed to meet your goals quickly and efficiently. One of my favorite exercise protocols is High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and it only calls for 20 minutes of your time, 3 days a week.
Supervision – Poor form bro, poor form! You are doing that exercise wrong and it hurts me to watch you keep doing it that way. Continually exercising in bad form will definitely lead to injury and put a huge setback on your goals and your health. Personal attention from your trainer will ensure your safety and keep you from making a fool of yourself. Your trainer will observe, assist and, if necessary, correct as needed.
Sports-specific Training – Many amateur and professional athletes work with a personal trainer during the off-season to prepare themselves for in-season competition. Whether you want to shave some strokes off your golf score, shorten your race time, or win the wrestling championship, a personal trainer can tailor your program to your sport of choice.
Injury Rehabilitation – Injuries and accidents can prevent you from participating in your favorite activities. An experienced personal trainer, however, can make the road to recovery a smooth one by recommending exercises that emphasize overall muscular balance to prevent future injuries. Training can also make sure that you don’t lose too much of your progress while healing from an injury.
Special-needs Training – Research confirms that individuals with health challenges such as diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis or heart disease benefit greatly from regular physical activity. These conditions, however, can make exercising safely a challenge. Many personal trainers are experienced in designing programs that address the special needs of these and other conditions.
Surround Yourself with Success –If none of your friends or family has made fitness a priority, then this is going to drag you down. Your trainer wants you to look and feel great so that you can refer your de-conditioned friends in for more business. Ask your trainer for tips and advice because they also overcame many challenges to get fit.
