The days of the personal fitness trainer being for a celebrities only are gone. Nowadays, personal trainers are used by people of all ages, fitness levels and budgets to help achieve their health and fitness goals.
Regular exercise is important for many reasons including reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, strokes and some forms of cancer. Most of us know we should exercise more.
But it’s not easy. For some people, being in a gym is pretty intimidating. Others may know what they want to achieve but have no idea of the best way to achieve it. And others want to exercise but when it comes to actually getting off the sofa, it falls apart. This is where the personal trainer’s expertise can help.
Getting you out of the door
A personal trainer helps you overcome your exercise obstacles. And one of the biggest obstacles is having the motivation and discipline to exercise in the first place. It’s easy to intend to exercise. Not so easy to do it or keep it up.
But if you have a commitment to meet someone, you’ll go. Your trainer will care about you and your success and give ongoing feedback and encouragement to help achieve your goals whilst never judging you. Everyone’s different and the trainer helps you achieve your goals – no-one else’s.
With a personal trainer, you are much more likely to commit to an exercise regime than if you were working out alone. No two personal training sessions are the same and this variety keeps you interested and motivated. If you enjoy yourself you’ll train harder. And – to deal with a personal training myth held by some – you will not be expected to turn up wearing the latest season’s exercise attire either!
A common reason for a lack of exercise is time. Personal trainers understand the need for convenience and can arrange sessions before or after work, early in the morning, late at night, during lunch breaks or at weekends. How many times a week or month do you want to meet your personal trainer? Where –a PT can even come to your home – and for how long? Personal training is all about flexibility and meeting your needs.
Exercising effectively, efficiently and safely
A personal trainer will develop a program specific to you and your goals. Whether you want weight loss, toning, general health improvements or very intensive training for a specific sporting event, a personal trainer can help. They will teach you the proper way to exercise and use equipment. And this is important for many different reasons.
Firstly, you get maximum results in minimum time. The program’s designed specifically for you. Workouts using your strengths and improving on your weaknesses are efficient and effective. Trainers will teach you how to exercise on your own to supplement your sessions.
Your trainer won’t overwhelm you. They will work with you to develop an exercise routine that helps achieve your personal goals. They will also keep modifying the program to make sure it’s targeted.
Secondly, a personal trainer ensures you exercise safely and gives you feedback on your technique. They emphasise use of warm-ups/ cool-downs and will teach you how to use equipment properly so you don’t injure yourself. Your personal trainer will also work with you to prevent injuries in everyday life by helping increase your balance, flexibility and core strength.
Some people have specific medical conditions, or have suffered injuries, which can make exercising difficult. A personal trainer can devise a suitable programme, often in consultation with the client’s care providers (with the client’s permission), to support rehabilitation.
Improving your lifestyle
Your trainer’s support extends beyond your sessions – they provide motivation for developing a healthy and active lifestyle.
Your cardiovascular health, strength, flexibility, endurance, posture, balance and coordination will all improve – but personal trainers aren’t just about exercise. They offer dietary advice to support losing or maintaining weight whilst ensuring you have the energy to train.
Quite simply, the main reason for using a personal trainer is to get results. When you meet a personal trainer for a consultation, ask about the results they’ve achieved with previous clients or look on their website for testimonials.
Working with a personal trainer means you will get all the encouragement, support and expertise you need to achieve results you would struggle to achieve on your own.
And you don’t have to wear Lycra either!
