The number one reason why most people have a personal trainer
Despite being unhappy with our health, our fitness level, or what we look like in front of the mirror many of us lack motivation to makes changes.
The key is to find direction and focus to help us to makes changes to our life.
It is important to recognise and know how to achieve the goals you have in mind.
Personal trainers are valuable assets in the world of physical fitness and weight loss. They have the expertise to get you to reach your goals and beyond.
When you find yourself having a hard time doing this it may be time to hire a personal trainer.
Here are five ways a personal trainer may help you
When anyone undertakes a life altering path like one to physical change it can be difficult at first. The hardest part in the beginning is staying accountable. Knowing that you have someone who is going to keep you honest with yourself is very important. Personal trainers are like the personal accountability police. They know when you aren’t pushing yourself and they also have the ability to tell you when you are cheating yourself.
If you need someone to keep you accountable to your nutrition make sure you hire a personal trainer who has experience with the body shape goals that you have in mind. For example if you are looking at fat loss, a personal trainer who specialises in fat loss is likely to have the best advice.
Accountability with workouts comes in two packages. The first is the frequency in which you are working out. The second is the way that you work out. Having someone who questions you as to why you didn’t take any exercise on a certain day is a great motivator to get off of the couch and head to the gym. Someone who tells you that you aren’t pushing yourself is also a great accountability measure. It is very easy at the gym to set the treadmill, or bicycle to the lowest setting and coast through your “workout” any personal trainer worth their salt won’t let you do this.
Many people reach a plateau stage in their routine. This is when you go into auto pilot when you get into the gym and you seem to go through the motions. The auto pilot process ultimately results in a plateau because it is impossible to give it your all when you aren’t mentally present for your workouts. Personal trainers prevent this from happening by keeping you engaged and by switching up your workouts.
One of the popular ways to keep your muscles growing is by confusing them. Muscle confusion is achieved by not going through the motions of the same boring workout each time you step into the fitness zone. Personal trainers know this. This is one of the primary reasons that a personal trainer will vary your workouts and help break you out of your plateau.
- Ideal training for goals
Many people think that because they are not training for a specific event that they do not need a trainer. While it is true that a personal trainer is ideal for those who may be training to run a marathon or compete in a triathlon, personal trainers can help you achieve a variety of goals.
If your goal is to trim the fat personal trainers can help you with this. They have the knowledge and training to make you do things that you never thought possible. A personal trainer should be able to get your muscles to burn fat much faster than you can on your own. Even if your only goal is to stay heathy a personal trainer is a valuable asset that you should keep in your fitness arsenal.
- Boredom with current workouts
The final way a personal trainer is going to help you is if you are experiencing boredom with your current workouts. If you dread going to the gym or working out a personal trainer is what you need. Personal trainers have the knowledge of a ton of different training methods. Introducing a new lifting regimen, circuit training or maybe even some TABATA training is the perfect way to avoid the boredom at the gym.
If you are motivated enough to work out on your own, but suffer from the ever present workout boredom then scheduling with a trainer once a week may be the perfect prescription for you to be able to continue to produce results without the extreme boredom that can come from working out with the same workouts over and over and over again.
No matter what your goals are a good personal trainer is going to be able to help you achieve them faster. Hiring a personal trainer will be the smartest decision you make with regard to your fitness routine.
A PT can provide huge inroads to breaking down the emotional/psychological barriers that you may have to exercise.
If you feel a little intimidated by the gym environment, having personal training can help break down those barriers helping you to become more comfortable with your surroundings, your ability to exercise, and ultimately how you perceive your fitness.
A PT can help you improve your perceived competence. Research shows that when a person improves their perception they exercise more regularly because they begin to enjoy the act of exercising and the benefits it gives them.
Studies reveal the importance PTs have on a client’s exercise adherence. Invariably results show that PT clients demonstrate a higher rating of perceived exertion score than those without a trainer.
