Get Inspired This Winter
We all need a little help with exercise sometimes, whether we are just starting out
or we've been at it for a long time. Still, there are people who shy away from
Personal Training, unsure of what they'll get out of the experience or whether it's worth
their money. There are a number of reasons why people work with Personal Trainers:
Some want an individualised program so they can lose weight and get in shape while
others simply need to be held accountable for their workouts.
Wherever you are on your exercise journey, a Personal Trainer may be just what you
need to take it to the next level and reach your goal.
6 Reasons You Might Need A Personal Trainer:
1. You Don't Know Where To Start
Knowing how to set up a complete exercise program that includes all the activities you need to do - cardio, weight training and flexibility - can be a little overwhelming. Add the time and knowledge it takes to choose exercises, weights, reps and sets and you may quit before you even start.
This is where a Personal Trainer can be your biggest help. They can help you maximise your time while keeping you within your own limits so you don't overdo it. I can also help you set goals and map out a specific schedule so you know when, how and where you will fit in your workouts.
2. Your Bored With The Same Old Workouts
If you're an experienced exerciser, maybe you haven't considered working with a Personal Trainer. However, it can be a great choice if you need some variety in your workouts. I can bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to challenge both your body and your mind. Even if you just do a few sessions or we meet every few weeks, you'll find it refreshing to have new workouts and new exercise toys to play with.
A trainer can also introduce new ways to exercise - Circuit Training, different methods of strength training and different types of equipment you've never tried before.
3. You Want To Learn How To Exercise On Your Own
Even if your goal is to create your own workouts and exercise by yourself, hiring a Personal Trainer for a few sessions can be a great benefit for learning the right way to exercise. This is especially true if you want to learn more about the muscles in your body, the exercises that target those muscles and how to do those exercises with great technique. Just a few sessions can teach you a lot about your body, how it works and how to train it in the most effective way.
4. You Need Accountability and Motivation
Trainers come with built-in motivation. Not only are you investing money into your exercise program...you're investing time as well. There's nothing like a standing appointment to get your butt in gear for a workout. Not only that, a trainer provides some accountability so, even when you don't have a session, you know your trainer will be asking if you did your planned workouts. Just knowing that may make it harder to skip your workouts.
5. You Need To Be Challenged
If you're like many, you may tend to slack off on your workouts sometimes, especially when things get busy. A trainer can motivate you to push past those self-imposed limits, encouraging you to lift heavier, go longer and challenge yourself more than you would on your own. You'll find it's very hard to slack off with a trainer standing over you, telling you to do just...one...more...rep! You may even find hidden strengths you never knew you had, which will motivate you even more.
6. You Want To Workout At Home
If you'd like to exercise at home but either don't have a lot of equipment or aren't sure how to use what you have, in-home Personal Training is an excellent choice. I can show you exactly how to use what you have to get the best workout for you or I can bring new equipment along to give you a fresh and new workout program. I can also make recommendations for equipment to buy that will help you reach your goals.
