Do I Need a Personal Trainer?

The Struggle

You as many people are looking for a way to reach your desired fitness goals. You know what you want to accomplish whether it’s to gain more muscle, run faster, or just to lose weight. I remember growing up playing sports, all we had were our coaches to train our players on the team. There were no specialized individual training options. Today we have TOO MANY options to choose from and they all promise magic results, but that instead of helping you make a decision, it makes it harder. That’s why selecting your way to start could turn into a very overwhelming process. Do you need to join an online fitness program? Should you purchase one of those fancy and expensive devices? or should you hire a Personal Trainer? In this post, we will discover the benefits of working out with a Personal Trainer.


Do I need a Personal Trainer?

Let’s say you have selected your method, you joined a gym or you equipped yourself with a home gym. Now what? The first two weeks could be exciting, but studies show that most people lose their focus after those 2 initial weeks after the excitement is gone. It is not the equipment.

We as humans enjoy and look for interactions with other humans, we grow and develop our skills and even our mood improves when we are surrounded by positive people. Fitness is not an exception, we need personal one on one connections to fully get the experience and education of achieving optimum overall health, rather than just having the tools or reading the latest tips in a fitness mag or on the internet about exercising.


The Benefits

You are automatically held accountable for making sure that you are on time and ready for the scheduled training sessions. You learn to become more disciplined when you become more accountable for yourself.

You will get a fitness and health assessment that will be your road map to having a game plan for longevity, which can lead to a lifestyle transformation.

A Personal Trainer can help you stay motivated, and to push yourself harder and longer than you ever would alone.

You have less of a chance to get injured while exercising. If you do happen to get injured, there are some Personal Trainers who also have skills and experience in physical therapy to help you cope with that knee or aching back.

When you work with a personal trainer, he or she can even give you a good stretch to relieve that stiffness and stress from a hard day of work. You can only stretch yourself to a certain degree. That’s when the personal trainer can help increase your flexibility in which is also great for increased circulation throughout the body.



So to conclude, ask yourself again do I need a personal trainer? It’s definitely not for everyone, but for the ones going after real results and changes. Make sure to do your homework and research the Personal Trainer’s background to see if they are a good fit and match for you. If you find the right one, there is a good chance you will be happy with the journey.

Great Day !
