March Fitness Tip: FIVE REASONS TO HAVE A PERSONAL TRAINER

02/28/2017

1. You'll Show up to Work out!

Some fitness experts recommend scheduling reasons into your calendar like appointments. Truth? If you’re not in the mood to exercise, it’s easy to hit delete on a fake workout appointment.

What’s not so easy is cancelling a workout you’ve already paid for! Hiring a personal trainer puts someone in your court to keep you accountable.

2. You’ll Get More Out of Your Goals

When you hire a personal trainer, you put yourself on a fast-track to getting more of what you want from fitness, including being able to define and refine your goals in ways you might not have considered. Trainers know the best exercises & best equipment for plenty of client goals. It’s what they do for a living.

3. You’ll Sometimes Do What You Didn’t Know You Could Do

Chances are, your personal trainer is occasionally going to suggest an exercise you’re unsure of or hand over a set of dumbbells that are heavier than what you’d ever pick up. You might be surprised to discover that what’s being asked of you is doable!

4. You’ll Gain More Confidence With Working Out

With a trainer by your side, you gain access to inside information about how to properly perform exercises and make the most of equipment. When someone’s watching out for you—checking your form and providing personalized feedback—you can feel confident that you’re exercising like the pros.

5. You’ll Lay the Foundation for Lifelong Fitness

If you’ve hired the right personal trainer—one who meshes with your personality, is attentive to your abilities and goals, and is skilled at his or her job—a funny thing happens...you become motivated! The more motivated you feel, the closer you become to making fitness a lifelong habit.  (American Council of Exercise)
