Is Hiring A Personal Trainer The Right Choice For You?
The human body is an amazingly complex machine.There's a reason why only 5% of dieters are successful at keeping their weight off and why one-third of weight loss is regained within one year. Diet and exercise are the two major components of losing weight, staying in shape and living a healthy lifestyle. To be successful, it is important to understand how the body works and how to create the correct energy balance. A personal trainer uses their knowledge and experience to create an individualized plan so you can achieve YOUR goals. If you are wondering if hiring a personal trainer is the right choice for you, think about what a personal trainer can do for you:
Get Started on the Right Track Sometimes the most difficult part of working out is getting started. You need to know how to create an exercise schedule, make sure you are doing the correct exercises with the correct amount of weight, reps and sets and know how to include cardio, weight training and flexibility. It can all be very overwhelming! Your personal trainer will help you come up with a schedule that includes the "how, when and where" of working out to get you started and KEEP you on the right track. Accountability, Motivation and Support How many times have you skipped a workout or stopped your exercise program? When you have regularly scheduled appointments with a personal trainer, it makes it more difficult to come up with excuses to skip your workouts. Making a commitment to consistently meet with someone who provides individualized support and motivation will keep you encouraged and enable you to stick to your program. Learn the Correct Way to Work Out Exercising can be intimidating, especially when you are not sure of the right way to do it. Most injuries occur because the correct form isn't being used or because the exercise isn't being performed correctly. A personal trainer will not only provide supervision of workouts, but will also teach you how to perform exercises correctly, how to choose the correct exercises and how to determine the correct number of exercises to do.
Be Challenged and Get Variety Even if you already have an exercise regimen and have been working out on your own, a personal trainer is a great way to add variety to your routine. It is important to change up your workouts and to move your body in different ways to get continued results and to keep you from getting bored. A personal trainer can also challenge you and take your workouts to a whole new level. Effective and Safe Workouts for Specific Illness, Injury or Condition If you are experiencing a specific illness, injury or condition and have the desire to exercise, working with a personal trainer will ensure that the workouts you do are safe, effective and specific to your needs. A personal trainer will provide you with exercises that will be effective and will not harm you or your condition.
Training for a Sport or Event Working with a personal trainer is a great way to train for a 5K, marathon, triathlon, during the off season or for any type of special event. A personal trainer will use your training goals and a specific timeline to create a training schedule to get you ready for your sport or event and make sure you perform at your best.
