Everyone with health and fitness goals can benefit from the expertise of a good personal trainer.
Whether you’re a novice or a veteran; whether you love running, powerlifting, bodybuilding, cycling, swimming or anything in between – there is always a personal trainer who can help you get the results you desire, and then some.
There are many reasons why we use personal trainers to achieve or health and fitness goals. I’ve listed below what I believe are seven of the key reasons to use a qualified PT.
A personal trainer will believe in your ability even when you believe you have none. That belief and firm support will rub off on you. A personal trainer will hold you accountable for sticking to your training and diet plans and that can also be a great motivator.
A good personal trainer will ensure you have specific training and nutrition plans – and ensure you stick to it. The training routine will be realistic as it will be tailored the goals you seek while taking account of the time you have available and your personal dietary or other needs.
A big part of a good personal trainer’s role is providing guidance and advice on nutrition that is effective and safe. PT’s have knowledge, education and experience to provide helpful nutritional tips and guidance – and of course encouragement to stick to the diet plan by holding you accountable for what you consume.
A good personal trainer will ensure that you train smart by using proper technique and form. Getting hurt is an all too common occurrence in sport but with the help and guidance of a personal trainer you’ll get that squat and deadlift technique or running and rowing form spot on every time. PTs will instruct on how to properly use equipment to avoid strain and injury and help you prevent injury by building flexibility and core strength exercises into your plan.
A good personal trainer will ensure your get the maximum results from minimum time spent training. We don’t all have the luxury of training time afforded to professional athletes or the rich and famous so training efficiency can make all the difference in getting the results you seek.
A PT will keep regular tabs on your training to ensure you achieve your workout goals and hold you accountable for completing your sessions on your own time while making alterations where necessary.
Train while injured
A good personal trainer will know when you should train, when you shouldn’t and even how to adapt your routine when injured.
