Why you should hire a Personal Trainer...
So finally you have decided that enough is enough and you want to hire someone so you can get better results. If you want to get better at the piano, you don’t want to sit there and guise which key is which. You hire someone to teach you. Don’t you!
It’s the same principle with training. If I want to take it to the next level with my physique, rather than trying 1000 different ways, I hire someone who can help me. There will always be doubt when writing your own training programs. Having an objective eye at all times to evaluate your training needs is invaluable.
This is the big one. Of all the benefits of having a personal trainer, this is why coaching will always lead to better results. Even if you know what you’re doing, having a PT ups the ante and increases your accountability to the process.
The financial and emotional investment you make to a PT means you don’t want to let him or her down. And yes, it’s an emotional investment because remember, if your PT cares (which they should –a good PT should care about your results MORE than you), you will want to do everything he or she lays out for you, or feel bad for it.
For me, I know every Saturday morning my clients got to ‘whatsapp me with their weekly report and pictures. This keeps them in check all throughout the year, no matter what the goal is.
LEARN NEW THINGS
Over the years I’ve paid for courses, consults, training sessions, phone calls and coaching all with the goal of learning new things to implement in my own and more importantly, my clients’ training.
I see personal training as an investment into my clients’ knowledge with the goal of improving their level of expertise in a specific field, theirs being body composition.
CONFIDENCE, SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT
An overlooked benefit to personal training is the confidence, support and encouragement you can attain from being pushed out of your comfort zone and working towards a big goal.
The most fulfilling part of personal training is seeing the client transform both mentally and physically over time.
During this time, there are going to be ups and downs the client will face, whether it be dips in motivation, a struggle to see the bigger picture, or even lack of confidence in achieving their goals.
A personal trainer can really help with this, and be the constant support required to ultimately achieve your goal.
LESS THINKING, MORE TIME
Outsourcing your training and nutrition to a personal trainer can reduce a lot of the stress,
confusion and time often wasted when training yourself.
