If you've ever tried to lose weight or get in shape, you know how hard it can be. Whether you are at the beginning of your fitness journey or a seasoned gym goer, it can be easy to get frustrated and fall behind or give up when those setbacks hit and you don't have anyone pushing you forward, reminding you that what you're doing is working—and to keep doing it. That's where having a coach comes in, having a personal trainer can help you achieve your fitness goal faster and help you navigate through your journey that can be filled with roadblocks and setbacks.
The benefits of having a personal trainer (PT) can be endless but we’ve broken down the top reasons why you should hire a personal trainer and how it can significantly help with your fitness journey.
1 - Structure & Support
2 - Collaboration
3 - Emotional Support & Motivation
4 - Educated Technique & Form
5 - Getting Results
Structure & Support
A good personal trainer provides a lot more than just a workout. Everyone's goals differ which is why we take more of an individual approach to our programming. Investing in a PT will mean we will provide a detailed plan to help you achieve your goals as well as add a wide variety of exercises to your training routine.
We don't tell our clients what to do; we collaborate to put together a plan specific to your circumstances, needs, and preferences.
It is easy to fall into the same workout habits and stick to what you know without trying out new exercises due to fear of not knowing how to effectively perform the move. This in turn can affect your mood and cause a training plateau. Having a PT will mean you can collaborate and find a routine that works for you and continuously pushes you towards your goals.
Emotional Support & Motivation
When working out on your own, it can be easy to lose motivation, convince yourself you'll go tomorrow instead, or cheat a set. A personal trainer will help you stay accountable throughout your programme.
An excellent PT won't just support you through your exercise and nutrition coaching, but also provide emotional support and encouragement during the sometimes difficult process of achieving those goals.
Educated Technique & Form
Whether you want to learn how to perform an exercise properly or learn a new exercise, a personal trainer will be able to teach you the correct technique. Correct form will help you avoid injury and target the right muscle groups.
A personal trainer will have a huge amount of knowledge to help you achieve your goals while protecting your health at the same time.
The key to long-lasting results is to find a way to balance work, social and family commitments, with accountability for following through on those steps until you reach your goals. Many trainers will also provide information on how to live a balanced life and lifestyle habits that will maximise your results, creating disciplined habits in training, will carry over the other areas in your life that lack discipline.
Regardless of how much time you have to spend at the gym training, a personal trainer will help you use the time you have paired with the right exercises to maximise your results every session.
