Every individual has individual goals. For some strength building may be the end desired. For other, weight loss. The list goes on and on. Having a blanket template to follow will get you there eventually. Think taking the back roads to a destination. While taking a one on one approach will get you to your destination much quicker. Think taking the highway. Below are our top 5 reasons why everyone needs personal training in their lives.
- Results. They speak for themselves. The fastest way to get guarantee results is one on one personal training. When you meet with a coach on your first day they can clearly define goals and an approach to your training. A coach will then build a plan tailored to your wants and needs for fitness. Generally speaking people have similar issues so they will have experience working with someone looking for a close result. Now they will finalize a plan to get you a breakthrough with your training. All you need to do is show up.
- Accountability. People are 1 million times more likely to show up to their session if it’s scheduled. They know someone is waiting for them to arrive at a specific time. Plus if you miss your appointment your training will know and call to make sure it doesn’t happen again. The more time goes on and the more consistent you show up, you’ll form habits. These healthy habits and routines will lead to a much happier and more confident you.
- Personalization. The best way to train is when every aspect from the warm up, strength, skill, conditioning, and cool down are all made for you. The programming you’ve always wanted. The movements you’ve always needed and never knew it. Now 3-5 times a week you get spoiled with glorious fitness. What’s that, you want to bench every Monday you got it. Get excited to continually work on movements that push you closer to your specific goals.
- Partnership You have a teammate on your side advocating for your health and fitness. Someone who has a personal stake in your results and how you feel day to day. The best trainers can sometimes be considered a type or psychiatrist. During the rest periods it’s a great time to talk to your coach about life. Friendships are developed and training can become more than just lifting weights. It can become a time to vent about life or talk about the game last night. Social interaction is a great thing. Think of all the people that go to the gym with their headphones in and don’t say a word. Now you have someone to talk to and push you daily.
- Longevity. You’ll be getting a master class in strength and conditioning every session. You’ll learn more about your body and how it moves to help with day to day idiosyncrasies. I know from experience when I had a lot of damage from high school sports. My trainer helped me develop a shoulder stretching routine. This is a routine I still do to this day. Working with a trainer doesn’t have to be for the rest of your life. But I think you’d be pleasantly surprised at the amount of education you could get in 6 to 18 months.
