Why should I get a personal trainer?
Why should I get a personal trainer? It’s a good question, and one that we hear a lot. People have a very set idea in their minds of what a personal trainer can do for them. Unfortunately, we often hear that “my partner” or “my friend” is going to help show them what to do instead. They are led to believe that those without personal training credentials are just as knowledgeable. Leaving the value of having a personal trainer minimal in their eyes.
We think they couldn’t be more wrong, and here’s why.
Reasons why you should have a personal trainer
- Personal trainers have trained in their job because they are passionate about fitness. They want you to benefit from this passion, and they will motivate you and inspire you endlessly. They will help you reach your goals.
- A PT will be objective about your training. Unlike a partner or friend, they know how to train you professionally, with safe and manageable training programs. This will be based on expert knowledge.
- They will guide you and push your limits. It’s common to feel that you are working really hard in your own routine. But once you work out with a personal trainer regularly, you really will see progression in your strength and fitness. It is so much harder to reach certain goals by yourself. It’s natural for many of us to not do that last squat or to finish your plank 5 seconds early. A personal trainer with give you accountability. All the extra things you will achieve as a result will really make the difference.
- Nobody wants to get injured. It’s a pain, literally! Working out with a personal trainer means you will learn correct technique. This knowledge is invaluable. Your likelihood of injury will be lower. You can therefore be more productive and progress with your goals more efficiently.
- Your PT is on your side! They are rooting for you. Sometimes it just feels so good to have somebody working with you that believes you can do it. You’ll walk out of your training session feeling proud of yourself. As you should.
- A good personal trainer will keep your exercise routine fresh. Changing up your exercises regularly will stop you from getting bored. Also, it is proven to improve your fitness levels and increase your strength levels more than by doing the same things over and over again.
- They will help build your confidence with exercise. Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or are an experienced fitness bod, it can feel intimidating trying new exercises or even just exercising at all in front of others. Your personal trainer will support you through this.
- If you already have an injury, a PT is great for advice and guidance during your workout. They’ll know good ways to modify certain exercises, they’ll know which muscle group you need to work on to support your rehabilitation. It can be nerve-wracking to go through this recovery process alone, and unfortunately, we don’t all have the knowledge of our bodies to know when we may actually be doing more harm than good.
