10 Reasons to hire a personal trainer
If you are just starting out with an exercise program or you aren’t seeing results with your current routine, a personal trainer might be your best option. Here are 10 reasons why you might want to hire a personal trainer.
1. You're not seeing results
2. You don't know where to start
A trainer can help you with the basics. The workouts you do should be based on the F.I.T.T. principle: You choose the frequency, intensity, time, and type of workout and manipulate these elements over time. A trainer can help you navigate the process.
He can teach you how to get the most out of your workout, while also making sure you don’t overdo it.
3. You're bored with your workouts
If you’re an experienced exerciser, you may not have considered working with a personal trainer. However, it can be a great choice if you need some variety in your workouts. It’s easy to fall into a workout rut, doing the same workouts over and over. This isn’t just boring; it can also lead to weight loss plateaus, overuse injuries, and burnout.
A trainer offers a fresh perspective and new ideas to challenge your body and your mind. Even if you only have a few sessions or meet every few weeks, it can be refreshing to have new workouts and exercise equipment to try.
4. You want to learn how to exercise on your own
Even if your goal is to create your own workouts and exercise by yourself, hiring a trainer for a few sessions offers the benefit of helping you learn the right way to perform a new exercise. This is especially true if you’re new to strength training and need to practice. A trainer can:
Bring in targeted exercises: This knowledge is gold, especially for the home exerciser. Knowing a variety of exercises that target different muscles allows you to create your own workouts.
Demonstrate good form: To get the most out of your workouts and avoid injury, you need to do each exercise in a certain way. A trainer can offer cues to help you get your body into the right position to ensure you are doing each move correctly (and safely).
5. You need accountability and motivation
Motivation comes from all kinds of places, both internally and externally. You may already have some intrinsic motivation to exercise, such as wanting to be healthier or to get off your high blood pressure medication. You also need extrinsic motivators to keep exercising. A personal trainer can be that motivator. By hiring a trainer, you’re creating motivation in several different areas.
Your trainer will probably ask about your week, wanting to know if you did your workouts and how your eating plan is going. Knowing that you’ll have to report in can make you less likely to skip your workouts.
