7 Reasons Why You Need to Hire a Personal Trainer

Isn’t a personal trainer just for pros and wannabe athletes? No! The benefits of personal training can be felt by anyone, working towards any goals. 

Whether you’re someone who is just starting their fitness journey or a seasoned gym goer/recreational athlete with a solid fitness level, having a personal trainer or a coach can help you meet your fitness goals faster, safer and more effectively. 

Here are the top 7 reasons why you should choose to work with a personal trainer. 

1 - Individual Expert Advice 

In a world diluted with influencers and fitness “pros”, you can’t beat expert advice from a qualified and experienced professional. A qualified PT is the expert you need to provide you tailored advice and exercises, whether you’re goal is to:

  • Complete your first marathon or triathlon
  • Recover from an injury
  • Regain your fitness levels after pregnancy 
  • Lose weight

2 - Safe & Specific Fitness Programs 

Everyone’s goals differ which is why if you take two people and do the same online program you will likely get different results. Investing in a PT means you get: Personalised training, Encouragement and guidance on how to try new movements, and workouts, A wider variety of exercise in your training routine. 

3 - Motivation & Accountability 

When exercising on your own it can be easy to skip a session, snooze your alarm clock or cheat a set. A personal trainer will keep you accountable and push your workouts to the next level while providing motivation throughout each session and the duration of your program.

4 - Fresh Ideas and Inspiration 

It can be easy to fall into the same workout habits and eventually get bored with your workout routine. In addition to affecting your mood and motivation, this is a common cause of training plateau and you may be left wondering why you’re not seeing results from working out. A personal trainer can bring much-needed variety and a fresh perspective and new viewpoints to challenge both your body and mind. 

5 - Efficiency 

PT’s conduct a needs analysis and use their expertise to create a tailored and individual fitness plan to help you maximise results in a timely manner,  increasing the efficiency of your exercise program. This is especially beneficial if you have limited time to exercise, and you want to capitalize on the time you spend working out. Effective workouts with a personal trainer will make sure you’ll have time for other important things in your life.

6 - Constant Support  

One of the perhaps less known benefits of personal training is that it’s much more than fitness. Personal trainers act as unofficial therapists and can provide a great source of connection. Sure, they’ll help you reach your fitness goals but they also care about your well-being and can assist in improving not only your physical, but mental health.

7 - Clear Results 

Depending on your goals and budget, you may use a personal trainer once a week or once a month. If you’re not sure, just try it out once to see if it’s right for you. Many great trainers also provide information, tools and resources on your nutrition and lifestyle habits to maximize your results. That is something you can take with you and incorporate in your journey to healthy, active living in the long term.
