Throughout the years I have heard one question asked to me hundreds of times.
Why should I invest in a trainer/coach?”
As a fitness professional I believe there are some very strong positive answers to this question that are appropriate for most people. Whether it’s a one-on-one personal trainer, small group training, or a gym membership with classes there are many reasons to invest in you. I am going to breakdown my top 3 reasons why it is important to invest in a personal trainer/coach.
1. Motivation Through Education
When working with a trainer you will learn how to exercise correctly. It can be extremely motivating to not only learn how to do an exercise right, but also the “what” and “why” behind the results you can get from your workout. With hundreds of different pieces of fitness equipment and thousands of different exercises, working out can be extremely overwhelming. Why not work with a coach that will teach you new exercises, how to use new pieces of equipment, and how a complete systemized workout is right for you? I always want to educate my clients so they know the “why” behind fitness. The motivation that can be created from learning how all of this intense hard work will get you the results you want is well worth it!
2. Accountability For Sustainability
Another one of my top reasons to invest in a trainer is because you will now have accountability to fitness. You will be held to your schedule with training sessions or classes that you have signed up for. With this built into your schedule and a trainer/coach holding you to it, you will be more likely to stick to your goals. When it comes to seeing results a consistent training program is very important. Hiring a personal trainer or signing up for a membership with classes will keep you on the right path for results.
3. Customization For Results
When working with a trainer you will get a customized plan to reach your goals faster. As I stated earlier, it can be overwhelming to try to create your own workouts with all of the different machines and programs being thrown at us from every direction. On top of that, how do you know if you are doing the right workout for the results you want? When working with a trainer, they will create individualized programming for your sessions to train you for what your body specifically needs and what goals you want. A trainer will provide exercises to correct imbalances and prevent injury that you might not even realize you have. The investment is worth the individualized plan to keep you healthy and reach your goals efficiently.
With education, accountability, and customization as your tools for success the investment isn’t for a trainer, it’s for yourself. The physical, aesthetic, and health benefits associated with this investment are priceless. Along with that, starting to work with a trainer before the New Year’s rush will give you time to create a base of confidence before the gym gets busy in January. Take the time to invest in “YOU” and create a plan with a trainer today to start getting results tomorrow!
