Is personal training a luxury or a necessity? I’ve been a personal trainer for over two years now. When I first became a personal trainer. I struggled with the idea that personal training was a luxury reserved for those that could afford it. I’ve come to realize that personal training is not a luxury it is a necessity.
There is so much misinformation out there about diet and exercise. That the expertise of a personal trainer can help guide you along the right path. Hiring a personal trainer does cost more than your average gym membership. However, the benefits of personal training far outweigh the costs.
The Benefits Of Personal Training
When someone else’s time and energy is on the line other than your own. You are more likely to follow thru. By making an appointment to meet with a trainer. You are far more likely to go to the appointment. Then if you were just to go to the gym on your own. A personal trainer will hold you accountable for making working out a priority.
A personal trainer will help keep you motivated to reach your long term fitness goals. They will design an actionable workout programs that you can do in the short term to meet your long term fitness goals. Not wanting to let yourself or your personal trainer down will help keep you motivated. Theres something to be said about the praise you get from a personal trainer. After you wanted to throw in the towel, that just keeps you going.
Hiring a personal trainer is more than just someone telling you which exercises to do in an hours time. A personal trainer will educate you on different types of exercises, show you how to do them with proper form in order to avoid injury, and explain how each movement impacts your body. If something doesn’t work for you they can show you a different technique in order to modify the exercise so its more comfortable for you to do. The knowledge that you gain by working with a personal trainer, you can take with you long after your workout session.
All in all hiring a personal trainer is an investment. You are investing in yourself, your health, and educating yourself on how to better treat your body. If you are interested in hiring me as your Personal Trainer then check out my coaching website.
