Then a personal trainer is your answer!

There are many benefits to working with a personal trainer. Their knowledge and experience in the realm of physical health and fitness can
be extremely helpful in numerous ways. Here are just 7 reasons you may consider hiring a personal trainer:

#1:          Safety

Amidst the exercises, machines, and gym equipment is the potential for an injury to occur. Additionally, certain exercises pose risks to hurting yourself if not done in a safe and correct way. Trainers teach the usage of each equipment piece as well as educate on proper exercise technique so that risk turns into reward.

#2:          Goal Setting

Its hard to exercise when you aren’t sure what exactly you are trying to improve. That’s why personal trainers work with their clients to set short and long term goals that meet are realistic and attainable. Trainers can set short term goals that designed as stepping stones toward your long term goals. This way, your long term goals will seem less daunting, and your small successes on the way will continue to motivate you.

#3:          Accountability

Going it alone can be difficult, and it’s easy to give up without someone there to push you to keep going. A personal trainer also acts as an accountability partner during your workouts. They are there to make sure you are staying motivated, aren’t cheating any reps, or quitting too early.

#4:          Support and Encouragement

Tying in to #3, Personal trainers are a main source of support, encouragement, and motivation feeding into the clients life. The outflow of positive encouragement from the trainer combined with exercise can lead to a greater increase in self-confidence, lower stress and depression, and improve overall mental health.

#5:          A Personalized Plan

The needs and goals of the client are of utmost importance to the personal trainer, which is why they create a workout routine that is specific to you! Exercise isn’t always “one size fits all”, and what works for one person may not work for another. Personal trainers develop individualized plans that are tailored to address your specific needs.

#6:          Health Education

Personal trainers often have a great amount of knowledge about the body, physical fitness, nutrition, and simply general health. They have keen insight on ways to improve your wellness, in and outside of the gym. Some examples may be teaching exercise technique, educating on different functions of the body, or helping with behavioral changes to improve overall health and fitness.

 #7          Results

All of the previous reasons work together to produce one thing: RESULTS! If you have been exercising for weeks without seeing a change, or want to make a change in your life but don’t know how – a personal trainer is there to assist you.
