We all need a little help with our fitness regimes at some point or another, whether you’re new to exercise, or have been training for a while, a personal trainer can help you reach the next level in your fitness journey.
You don’t know where to start
With so much information out there on the best workouts, from cardio to weight training, body conditioning to yoga or pilates, High Intensity Interval Training to Crossfit and so much more, its not surprising that it can be overwhelming and confusing to know what works best. A Personal Trainer can look at your specific goals and set programmes that will best help you achieve them, whilst making them fit around your lifestyle.
You have difficulty motivating yourself
We all start off a new exercise regime with enthusiasm and the best intentions, but for many, this can start to dwindle after a couple of months. We get bored, we run out of ideas, we make excuses instead of putting our training shoes on and stepping outside. When you’ve got an appointment booked, it’s more difficult to make excuses. Plus, a good Personal Trainer can motivate you and make you want to hit that gym/park/class without shouting in your face or the employing the military ‘drop and give me 10’ mentality – we’re not all mean you know!!
Lack of results
So many people give up on their exercise plans because they aren’t seeing the results they were expecting. A Personal Trainer can take a detailed look at what you are currently doing and what changes can be made to help you get great results, hit your goals and to get the most out of your workouts.
You need advice for nutrition and lifestyle
You feel like you’re doing everything right in the gym, working out 3-4 times a week, pushing yourself hard, but you’re still not shifting that body fat or achieving that muscle gain. Personal Trainers understand the effects of nutrition and lifestyle too. They can look at your food diary and advise on the changes that you can make to get better results and start making you love that body!
You have a specific condition or injury
Many trainers are qualified to work with people who have conditions such as arthritis, heart disease or old injuries. Similarly, many have pre and post-natal qualifications and can work with you to ensure you enjoy a safe, effective workout.
You don’t enjoy the gym
Whether you feel intimidated by the gym environment, bewildered by the array of equipment, or you just don’t like the thought of leaving the house after a long day; training at home with a Personal Trainer could be the perfect choice for you. They can bring along their own equipment, use equipment you have within your home or even make recommendations for simple and inexpensive equipment that you can buy and use at home yourself.
They are the experts!
At the end of the day, Personal Trainers are qualified to know what is best for each individual and for your body. A good PT will be up to date with the latest research, exercise techniques and nutrition that will help you hit all of your fitness goals.
