6 Reasons Why Working with a PERSONAL TRAINER is a Good Investment

Working Out with a trainer by your side can push your fitness level forward much more quickly than working out on your own.  Read on for 6 Reasons why you should consider investing in yourself by hiring a personal trainer:

1. Trainers provide accountability & motivation
Do you want to look your trainer in the eye and tell her that you didn’t work out yesterday?
Sure, you can get this accountability from a dedicated friend who works out with you, but this is the trainer’s job. He or she has a vested interest in seeing that you complete your workouts.

Also, if you’re paying a trainer, do you really want to slack off and feel like you aren’t getting the most for your money? Money is good motivation to work out!

2. Trainers provide expertise
A good personal trainer will watch your form closely to ensure that you are doing the exercises properly in order to maximize your results and target the intended muscle groups.

3. A trainer will push you just enough for results to happen.
A trainer will push you harder than you will push yourself but will also keep you from rushing ahead too quickly. A good trainer knows how to push you beyond your comfort zone and when to stop before pain or injury sets in.

Expert trainers know alternative exercises if you have difficulty with one or if you have an injury you need to work around. In other cases, a modified version of an exercise is necessary, depending on your fitness level. A good trainer will expertly shape an exercise for you and your abilities.

4. A trainer helps you identify & reach goals
Setting goals, that are backed up with a plan to attain them is crucial. Personal Trainers encourage clients by pushing them toward results.  This is helpful when discouragement sets in.

5. A trainer will personalize your workout
Personal trainers know how to customize a workout based on your individual strengths, weaknesses and goals.
The Added Bonus?  Keeping your training session exciting is the key to beat boredom!

6. Trainers can reduce the possibility of injury
A good trainer will help you to do your exercises properly so that you won’t injure yourself. An injury can derail a workout program and cause you to lose momentum. Worse yet, you could lose all determination to continue.
