Whether you are a beginner and just starting out, or you have been training for a while and have hit a serious plateau, anyone can benefit from working with a personal trainer to maximize the benefits of their workout and actually hit their fitness goals!
Here are the 5 top reasons why you need an educated and qualified personal trainer:
1. Where do I begin?
What does that machine do? How do I train my core? Maybe you just need some help figuring out what exercises to do and how to do them right. Proper exercise technique is crucial to avoiding injury and maximizing the benefits. A trainer will help you with the basics such as choosing the right exercises, sets, reps and intensity to fit your unique needs and goals.
You know what you are doing and you have seen the results before, it is just a matter of showing up, right? Those long, dragging workdays, maybe your friends want to catch up or you want to watch the game tonight. We’ve all got them, excuses. Hiring a personal trainer and scheduling an appointment is the best way to stay accountable and be consistent.
3. Injury Prevention
Those achy hips keep acting up every evening. Your clicking shoulder just doesn’t get any better. Chronic lower back pain, again. You name it. Good trainers have the unique opportunity of working in collaboration with rehab professionals, together creating a safe and efficient program to fix muscle imbalances or movement compensation patterns that may be causing chronic pain and finally get you moving pain free!
4. Results and Progress
Are you tired of putting in the effort with poor results to show for it? An educated personal trainer will know exactly what you need to do in order to finally get the results you deserve! Program periodization is the key to avoiding plateaus and to keep challenging your body.
5. You are Bored and Not Being Challenged
Are you fed up with those online cookie-cutter workout plans? A qualified personal trainer will continually challenge you with different exercises and workouts to keep you engaged and avoid “just doing the same old routine.”
