Why use a personal trainer?

1. Measurable results

All too often gym goers finish a workout when they ‘feel’ they have had a good workout but over a period of time they see diminishing results. The necessity for accurate record keeping when training in order to track both the volume (the overall amount of training measured for example the total weight lifted in a session) and the intensity (ie the percentage of your 1 rep max that you used) of your workout will provide you with hard data to evaluate exactly how well your training endeavours are doing at achieving your goals. Knowledgeable exercise professionals will be able to manipulate these two key variables using the most efficient exercise protocols to suit your specific goal. For example training

2. Exercise properly

You’ll learn how to do exercises properly not just from a safety point of view but in a way which will give you the results you want in double quick time! Too many people go to the gym and stumble through their exercise routine the best way they know how. They don’t use proper form, so they never maximize their benefits. Doing exercises the wrong way also increases the risk of injury. Having a personal trainer changes all of that. The right personal trainer can show you how to do it right the first time – so you’ll look like a pro from day one. No more stumbling around – hoping nobody’s watching – praying you’re doing it the right way. Some people find that this factor alone is worth the cost of a personal trainer.

3. They can shorten the time you spend working out.

Using a personal trainer allows you to work out smarter – not longer. Intensity (both absolute and relative) really is the missing key in most peoples workouts. Your body will not magically transform based on the amount of time you spend in the gym. All too often the duration of the workout is the only measure that enthusiastic but uninformed gym goers use to guage their workouts, but this is a recipe for disappointment. You will lose multiple hours of your week to the treadmill and maybe even fit into that most awful category of gym behaviour where your exercise intensity is so low that you take to reading the gossip magazines whilst you work out. Oh, and your flabby bits will still be just as flabby as before. So thats the cost of a gym membership, the price of a magazine and hours of your leisure time each week wasted on minimal if not zero results. Its time to ditch the magazines (or at least save them till you get home) and hire a personal trainer. I’ll show you how to get the job done quickly and efficiently – and still get results. Instead of spending an hour ambling along on the treadmill, I will ramp up the intensity of your training meaning that you will have a challenging but satisfying workout and not feel like you are spending all of your life in the gym!

4. They make you more accountable.

You might be able to kid yourself with your excuses for missing exercise sessions but I’ve heard them all (although not from my clients, which I guess is a good sign!!). Having a personal trainer motivates you together we can works around or eliminate potential roadblocks in your lifestyle that might otherwise endanger your fitness journey and stop short of achieving your goals.

5. Variety

A personal trainer will give you new and exciting ways to work every muscle in your body. You’ll work muscles you didn’t even know you had! This can be one of the biggest advantages to using a personal trainer. They add excitement and variety to a routine so that it doesn’t become stagnant and uninspiring.
