If failed fitness goals sound like a familiar story then why not try something different for 2015? We examine some of the benefits of having a personal trainer.
The New Year has just arrived and many have failed at their fitness resolutions already. Unfortunately with a busy lifestyle, fitness can take a back seat. We start the year with great intentions but slowly sink back into our bad habits. Unfortunately most of us will need to start around now to get in shape for summer. If failed fitness goals sound like a familiar story then why not try something different for 2015? We examine some of the benefits of having a personal trainer.
Develop Good Fitness Habits:
Having poor form and posture can really affect your workouts. Doing movements in an incorrect manner can lead to an ineffective workout and also injury. You sometimes find that self-taught fitness enthusiasts will use magazines and You Tube to learn the basics. Although this is a good starting point, it caan then be hard to train yourself out of bad habits. Nothing substitutes having a personal trainer to guide you through your workout. A personal trainer will pay 100 percent attention to make sure you are performing each exercise correctly. This can really help you amplifying your fitness goals by improving posture, strength and effectiveness whilst training.
Motivational In A Style That Suits You:
Personal trainers are not just fitness experts, they are somewhat of psychologists too. A great personal trainer can read your personality and find out what makes you tick. Some clients need a soft and encouraging approach. Others need a little more order and an iron hand. They will cahnge their training method to suit the individual. This will not only help you to not only develop your own personalized goals, but to also develop a realistic and achievable plan to attain these goals. No matter what your training style, everybody will have a point where they would rather give up. A personal trainer will be there to motivate you and remind you why you wanted to achieve a higher fitness level in the first place.
Get Into a Good Routine:
Unfortunately most of us fail at our fitness goals because we do not get into a good routine. The New Year begins and we suddenly decide to hit the gym every single day. This method is just not sustainable and is the reason why most of us give up before January is through. If you haven’t worked out in a while, a personal trainer will not expect you to begin doing Crossfit for 60 minute, 5 days a week. A great personal trainer will help you to figure out what fits into your life and also allows you to achieve your goals. They will work with you to develop an exercise routine that you enjoy. All along the way holding you accountable and providing some solid motivation!
Maximize Your Workout and Save Time:
You may have gone to the gym for hours in the past and seen little result. This is because when left to our own devices, we can find it difficult to push our boundaries. It has been proved that a person burns more calories, in less time, when working alongside a personal trainer. The program that they develop for you will ensure you get the absolute maximum gain for the time you invest to work out.
Not Everything Works For Every Person:
Personal training is just that, PERSONAL! Although your friend Katie got fit from doing one Zumba class a week, the same may not apply to you. A personal trainer will develop a program that is specific to your body type and your goals too. They realise that not everyone just gets a personal trainer to look good. Some need to employ a fitness professional because they have an injury, others because they want to climb a mountain. Whatever your goal, a personal trainer will develop and teach you a program that will be specific to you.
The End Result:
Not everyone has the same reason for wanting to work alongside a personal trainer. Whether it be weight loss, injury, rehab, or just a hobby: A personal trainer is specially trained to focus you on your result. They can also develop a plan so that you ensure you meet your goals in a manageable time frame.
