Joining a gym is typically considered the “best” way to workout away from your home.
After all, people have been joining gyms for the past 20 years (or more), and this trend will no doubt continue into the near future.
So why work with a personal trainer rather than joining a gym.
Because the ultimate goal for joining a gym, and working with a personal trainer, is to “get more healthy.”
Chances are, if getting fit is the goal which one can actually help you accomplish your new fitness, and lifestyle, goals?
Benefits of working with a personal trainer
Maybe you like the idea of watching muscle bound guys pose in front of a wall of mirrors.
Hey, whatever floats your boat (as the saying goes).
But in my opinion the #1 reason why people join a gym, and then not go on regular basis, is because they feel uncomfortable going there. For starters, you may not know how to use some of the equipment. Then you might not have any idea which exercises to do to achieve your fitness goals.
So the first benefit of working with a personal trainer is proper instruction.
No two people may have the same goals, or the same body type, or require the same types of exercise to achieve their desired “look.” By working with a personal trainer you benefit from their instruction and expert guidance. They can design a workout routine for you, monitor you while you perform the exercises to make sure you are doing them properly, and create a manageable schedule to achieve your fitness goals.
The second reason to work with a personal trainer is motivation.
After all, your not superman (or wonder girl).
You certainly have enough “stuff” going on in your life, and it’s easy to lose track of time, energy, and motivation to stay on track. It happens to us all. But by working with a personal trainer they can help create a sense of accountability to help you stay on track. And by monitoring your progress over time you’ll have a sense of accomplishment, helping you to stay on track.
Finally, your fitness goals may change over time.
By working with a personal trainer they can help to redesign your routine or create a new one for you to follow. They can help to make constant adjustments to improve your results.
Does that make sense to you?
When you get right down to it, there’s no need to “go it alone” — and by working with a personal trainer you can stay on track and reach your fitness goals, rather than simply joining another gym and end up feeling guilty by not going.
