Your Personal Trainer: 10 Benefits
Are you one of the nearly 160 million Americans who made a new year’s resolution to get more fit? (Nielsen survey, 2015) Are you also one of the seventy percent of resolvers who quit on their goals after as little as two months? What you might need is a partner, coach, and friend who will jump start you on your fitness journey. That person is your personal trainer. The benefits of having a trainer are many. Here are just ten:
1. You have a place to start
Your personal trainer will be your tour guide, helping you become familiar with your fitness facility’s equipment, and how to use it. But that’s just the beginning. Your trainer will assess your fitness, help you set goals, and help you have the confidence you need to get started.
2. You’re accountable
Now, you have to keep going, right? Your personal trainer will remind you of your appointments and your goals, and help you overcome your excuses for taking a break. After all, it’s a lot harder to say no to your appointment with your trainer than to put off a solo workout.
3. You exercise smarter
Your body is unique. It digests food, holds water, and stores fat in its own way. It also has its own strengths and weaknesses. Your personal trainer will help you understand your anatomy and biology, determine your needs, and custom design a personal fitness program that will work best for you.
4. You get faster results
Training smarter means progressing faster. Whether you’re a beginner who wants a quick reward for your efforts or an avid athlete who’s experiencing the “plateau effect,” your trainer can look at how you work out and what you eat and drink, and show you where you can make changes that help you get results faster.
5. You avoid injury
Even if you’re engaged in a relatively non-strenuous exercise, you can hurt yourself if you do it wrong. Your personal trainer actively participates in your workout, ensuring you’re in the proper position, using the proper equipment and weight, and doing the proper number of reps and sets.
6. You’re more motivated
Sometimes, we need someone to give us that emotional push we can’t give ourselves. When you’re sore, have a case of the sniffles, or are just plain sad, your personal trainer is the person who will help you get over those emotional barriers and push through those self-imposed limits.
7. You avoid boredom
A trainer can be a valuable asset, especially to experienced athletes and fitness buffs. The fresh perspective, new ideas, and latest exercise innovations your personal trainer can bring will challenge and stimulate you physically and mentally. You may be surprised how even just a few sessions can take your fitness program to new heights.
8. You improve your performance
Your trainer can help you with sport-specific exercises that will up your game on the golf course, tennis court, or wherever you play.
9. You eat, drink, and sleep better
Your personal trainer can help you with both a meal plan and a rest plan that helps you burn fat, build muscle, and maintain the energy you need for your busy lifestyle.
10. You can become your own trainer
As your trainer teaches you how to take care of your body, you’ll be able to develop and manage your own personal fitness program so you can maintain your health and fitness for years to come.
