Are you really seeing the progress you want to see for the effort you put into your exercises? These are three major reasons people hire a personal trainer! The ones who see themselves in one or more of these categories, and take action on it, can excel beyond their goals, and see tremendous changes in more positive ways than they ever thought they could!
If a trainer is counting on you to show up to the gym, complete your workout, and give it your all, you are much more likely to stick to your workout routine and reach your health and fitness goals! So many times, people will be motivated on their own for a few weeks, then fall off the wagon and give up. Having a personal trainer will keep you on track, and help you stay motivated! It’s also much easier to want to keep coming to the gym when you see the real progress you can get when trained by a professional!
#2 Learn the proper ways to exercise for your goals
People can go to the gym on their own, with some random program over and over again, for weeks without seeing any change. This tends to be because they are doing the wrong exercises, improper form, or simply using the wrong weight and repetition ranges! Each of these aspects are very important when it comes to safe and effective exercise! Safety is always a trainers highest priority. If you are performing an exercise wrong, you can injure yourself, or cause more damage then progress. Certified trainers know the proper motion and form of each muscle and exercise, so you can safely and efficiently target the right muscle groups while lowering your risk of injury. Also, having a professional trainer set you up with a proper exercise program based on your individual goals will certainly propel you towards seeing major improvements in and out of the gym!
#3 You know what you are doing, but want to take your personal fitness a step further
People who compete in professional physique/bodybuilding competitions, athletic sports, and even olympians have coaches and/or personal trainers. They are obviously already comfortable with what they are doing, but in order to take their game to the next level or truly become the best they can be, a personal trainer will help them reach every inch they can get! Athletes know the importance of having a professional push them to reach their maximum potential, and organize their workouts to show the best results over time, and when they are needed most!
So just because you have a gym membership and scan in most days of the week, are you really making the progress you could be? Make your expenses and time worth your efforts by simply getting guidance from professional certified personal trainers, and see how quickly you can really improve yourself!
