Top 3 Benefits of Hiring a Personal Trainer

Want to get fit but not sure where to start? With a nutrition and exercise plan tailored specifically for you and the motivation you need to carry you through, personal trainers are the way to go. Certified personal trainers will help you develop a diet and exercise plan to best achieve your fitness goals and make sure you reach them.

We’ve all been there. Made a resolution to get fit, got a gym membership, went for a few days then stopped before any real progress was made. Whatever your challenge may be, e.g. not sure how to use the equipment or lack of motivation, rest assured you can meet your fitness goals with the assistance of a personal trainer. 

Top 3 benefits of hiring a personal trainer:

1. Guidance to reach your fitness goals. With both a gym membership and group fitness classes, there is little accountability and guidance. You are on your own around the gym, and it is up to you to keep up with the class. Uncertainties on how to use the equipment can be a barrier. The number one reason people stop exercising in these environments is because they do not receive the guidance they need to be successful. In a personal training session, your trainer will give you the tools you need to ensure each workout is completed for maximum effectiveness. And the support doesn’t stop there. Your personal trainer will not only tell you exactly what you need to do on your own time but also will be there to support you when you need them.

2. A fitness plan tailored specifically to you. Your trainer will design a program based 100% on your needs and goals. The first step is to find out what you are striving to accomplish, whether it be increased mobility, reduced pain, weight loss or increased strength. With a combination of resistance training, cardio, and nutrition tailored specifically to your needs, your personal trainer will ensure you are on the path to success.

3. Motivation to carry you through. Staying motivated is one of the top challenges to working out consistently long-term. When you are in a personal training session, your trainer is watching every rep to make sure you are completing it safely and effectively. They are there for the sole purpose of helping you reach your potential. By having a professional there who is 100% invested in your fitness goals, you are more likely to fulfill your goals and continue working out long-term. Another huge motivator that you are sure to encounter by working with a personal trainer: results. Once you see visible results that you are working towards your goals, you are more likely to continue on an upward trend.

Several studies have been conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of personal training. One such study, by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, compared two groups – one who utilized personal training for fitness and one who did not. The study determined that the group with access to a personal trainer better adhered to their fitness plans. Another, by researchers at Ball State University found significant improvements in strength gains in the personal trainer supervised group compared to the unsupervised group. 

Truly, there is no better way to start your fitness journey than with a personal training program designed by an experienced professional that can guide you step-by-step to success.
