5 reasons to hire a personal trainer
Hiring a personal trainer can seem like a lofty goal for some people. Perhaps you’re worried you can’t keep up or that it’s too expense. But hiring a personal trainer can be exactly the thing that helps you reach your fitness goals. We’re here to make a case for hiring a personal trainer -- no matter where you are in your fitness journey.
Here’s 5 reasons why you should hire a personal trainer:
You’ll be held accountable. It’s very easy to get off track from your fitness goals if you have no accountability. If no one knows you’re skipping a workout, it’s so easy to justify that you’re too busy, too tired, or that you’ll make it up later. Hiring a personal trainer means you have built-in accountability. Your trainer is waiting for you at a scheduled time and that is great motivation for making the workout.
Trainers are experts. A personal trainer is someone who had dedicated their career to learning about fitness. They have spent countless hours studying and coaching. Hiring a personal trainer means you have access to all of that information -- without having to put in the hours yourself.
They encourage you. The stereotype of a drill-sergeant style personal trainer that pushes you beyond your limits while screaming profanities is not based in reality. Personal trainers are here to HELP you not harm you. They will encourage you to push harder -- but in in a way that is realistic for your fitness level and personal body type. It’s just the boost you need to get better without injuring yourself.
Your workout will be customized. You can Google workouts, read books, and try everything under the sun -- but it will never be customized to your very specific needs. A trainer is able to develop a workout regiment that takes your fitness level and abilities into account. If you have an injury or physical limitation, a personal trainer can offer modifications to suit your needs. No book can do that.
They can help you prevent injury. Having a personal trainer workout with you is a great way to avoid injuring yourself. They can help you with proper form and advise on how hard to push yourself. With a personal trainer on constant watch, you are exponentially safer with each workout.
