Why you need a personal trainer
Losing weight or getting in shape is and will always be one of the most common new years resolutions each year and with good reason. There is nothing quite as thrilling as the feeling we get after crushing our goals and nothing as demotivating and grueling as the realization that we gained over 8kgs this Christmas.
So, naturally, you would want to get back in shape to start the new year on a high and active note. However, most people don’t like to just go to the gym without a plan or program to follow since it is awkward walking around not knowing which section t go to next. For this reason many people especially beginners turn to a personal trainer to help them. While it can be a pricey expense it can definitely be worth it.
There are many reasons why we believe that a personal trainer is the way-to-go, let’s look at a few.
It is educational
The main reason why people turn to personal trainers is for the very obvious reason - They are trained, to train. These people have gone through extensive training themselves in order to be able to help others with fitness programs and exercise routines. Trainers know what they are talking about, they know what works and they know what won’t work. Most people underestimate the importance of education in training and as a result, they don’t know which exercises will be most effective for their goals. Another reason why education is important if you are a beginner is to avoid and prevent injury. If you attempt a new workout you saw on YouTube, you may run the risk of injury and then become completely demotivated to continue your endeavors in an effort to get back in shape.
Do it right
A personal trainer will help you with your form. This is an invaluable benefit when training especially when trying out new forms of exercise for the first time. Your personal trainer will demonstrate each exercise and correct your technique and posture when you do it after their demonstration. Muscle memory will start to kick in eventually and you would have learned how to do certain forms of exercise the correct way long after you first started training with a personal trainer.
Crush your own goals
Your new years’ resolution might be to compete in a national fitness competition or even be as specific as wanting to lose your “love-handles”. Whatever your goals are, we have helped to train many different people with many different requirements. For this reason, we can absolutely recommend trusting a personal trainer to get you there. Aside from helping you achieve your goals, your personal trainer will also take into account your ability, fitness levels and motivation which they will utilize to help you get the most out of your experience.
If there is anything we have learnt from setting new years resolutions is that it only lasts about 2 months. This common occurrence happens to almost everyone unless you are a super-human. Failing to commit to your resolutions is most certainly not unlikely unless you have a personal trainer. A personal trainer will keep you accountable and motivated. Having set times and dates for you to work out with your trainer will motivate you to get out of bed and get your butt to the gym since you have someone waiting for you. Having no-one to “check-up” on you forces you to be extremely disciplined and that is what we call risky business since you just got used to spending a whole summer holiday laying on the beach with a frozen daiquiri. Above all other major benefits of having a trainer, accountability might be the number one perk since people are so undisciplined normally.
No wasted time
Most gym-goers would normally step back into their comfort zones by going to those machines they know how to use and are typically inclined to half-heatedly do your 10-minute treadmill run, do about 15 bicep curls and go home since that is what you always do. If you ever want to stand a chance to improve you need to kick it up a notch, or five. In this case, get yourself a trainer. They spare no expense in optimizing your workout. Remember, you are their marketing. If you look great after just a few weeks, everyone gets to enjoy seeing you reach your goals or get in great shape and your trainer wants that for you, not only for yourself but for them as well. If you have a 30-minute session with your trainer, they will be committed to pushing you beyond what you thought your limits were.
More than a workout
Any good personal trainer knows that you won’t reach any of your goals if you don’t combine your fitness program with a suited nutrition plan. Your personal will not only help you within the walls of Fitness Fables but will also check up on you daily to ensure you are eating the right things. If you don’t stick to a strict eating program provided by your trainer, you are wasting your time as well as your trainers. Don’t worry, your trainer won’t force you to eat lettuce and kale only or need to buy pre-made vegan meals that are way out of your budget. We know that each person is different and has a different set of goals to achieve. Your typical bodybuilder would have to load their plates with lots of greenery and some healthy meats, whereas your 20-something girls trying to get rid of cellulite will probably have a diet without any refined sugar. Whatever your situation, just know that your trainer will do their best to enhance your quality of life.
The year 2021 is around the corner, and we want you to be ready. Get yourself a gym membership at the Fitness Fables and talk to one of our trainers to find out how they can help you achieve your goals and improve your overall quality of life. At Fitness Fables, we have a personal and custom approach when it comes to training. We care about our clients and their progress and we absolutely thrive on the success of our clients.
