It might seem like something only famous people can enjoy, but hiring a personal trainer is more affordable than you think and it could be one of the best investments you will ever make. Here are 5 reasons you should consider hiring a personal trainer today:
Accountability – Whenever you set a goal and start off on the path towards that goal, your motivation is at it’s peak. You are excited, energized and raring to go. Unfortunately that motivation and energy isn’t always in full supply. After a long day of work & chasing after the kids, the last thing you may want to do is fit in that workout. That’s where a personal trainer can help. While it may be easy to cancel on yourself, canceling on your trainer or letting them know you missed your planned workout is much harder. Having a trainer keep you accountable means less missed workouts, more consistency and better results.
Training with medical conditions & healthy aging – fitness can help improve or prevent many chronic conditions and help keep you active as you age however exercising with diabetes, heart disease, joint issues or other conditions requires extra precautions. A knowledgeable trainer with experience working with different types of clients & conditions can design a program specifically for you that ensures your safety and provides a positive experience during an after your workouts.
Confidence – exercise can be intimidating and the path from where you currently are to where you aspire to be can be daunting and unclear. Combine that with all the conflicting information and fads on the internet and you may have no idea where to begin. A personal trainer can help you cut through the noise and provide a personalized plan that works for you, your body and your lifestyle. The education you will get from a personal trainer will give you the confidence to navigate the ups and downs along with way and ensure that you reach your goals and maintain them in the long term.
You are more than just a number – An effective personal trainer will get to know you, your specific needs, challenges, and successes. They will look at your physical, mental, emotional and social health and make sure the plan that is designed for you takes it all into account. If you have 3 kids, work from home and look after aging parents, a fitness plan that also includes finding the time to get to the gym for a 1 hour workout each day is a recipe for failure and frustration. A personal trainer can help you brainstorm ways of fitting in fitness and good nutrition into even the busiest of lives to ensure your long term success.
Fun – Exercise can and should be enjoyable. Your personal trainer will ensure that your workouts have variety and keep you engaged. Most trainers provide small group or buddy training which can be a way to reduce the cost of personal training sessions but also ensure that you are connecting with friends in a fun and active way.
No matter where you are starting from or where you want to go, a certified and experienced personal trainer can make that process safer, more effective and more fun.
