What are the benefits of working out with a personal trainer?

Apr 11, 2018

No matter your age or current fitness level, everyone can benefit from following a sensible exercise program. Cardiovascular, strength, and flexibility training are essential for maintaining physical health and vitality.  If you’re looking to accomplish a certain fitness goal, you may want to consider working with a personal trainer. Just like any pro athlete always has a coach or trainer, you too can benefit to improve your progress and performance.

What are the benefits of working with a personal trainer?

  • A personal trainer can help educate and prevent injury.
    Education during exercise is essential for preventing injury. Having someone help you that is educated on how to execute certain exercises will greatly reduce your chances of injury and increase the effectiveness of your fitness routine.
  • They know how to work with your own unique requirements.
    You may have an injury or a limitation that affects how you perform certain movements. A personal trainer will seek to understand your own individual needs and help design a workout program just for you.
  • A personal trainer will hold you accountable.
    If you’re just starting your fitness journey, or you’re trying to get back into fitness, a personal trainer can keep you focused and accountable. For example, if you’ve scheduled an early morning workout with your trainer, you’re much more likely to keep your appointment than if you were to workout on your own.
  • Your workout is planned and organized before you arrive.
    Too often people waste time wandering around a gym, trying to figure out what to do next or how to do a specific exercise correctly. When working with a trainer, all you do is show up with the right mindset and be ready to work. Your trainer will help you have an effective and efficient workout.
  • A personal trainer can help with more than just fitness.
    Don’t fall into the “fad diet” traps that make many believe they can drop pounds without exercise in a short amount of time. You are aiming for a sustainable health and fitness lifestyle. Nutrition and fitness go hand in hand. Nutrition guidance, along with personal training, can set you on the right path to a healthy and fit lifestyle that lasts.
  • They’ll challenge you.
    A personal trainer will help you believe in yourself. They will help you accomplish goals you never thought possible. When you feel like giving up, your trainer will be there encouraging you to keep going. You will push beyond limits that keep most people from truly reaching their goals.
  • Results Measurement.
    We’ve all heard, “What gets measured gets done,” and measuring your progress and celebrating milestones is a big part of your fitness journey. A personal trainer can help track your progress relative to your specific health and fitness goals and then adjust them up for you to continue getting stronger and healthier.

If you’ve hit a fitness plateau, you’re just getting back into the gym or you’re new to the fitness lifestyle, let a personal trainer help you reach your fitness goals.

The best part of your blog for me is when you said that by hiring a personal trainer, you can be educated on how to execute certain exercises to reduce your chances of getting injured. My sister and I are planning to lose weight and be fit again in the safest way possible. We can't afford to get injured because of using the wrong form of exercise, so we'll make sure to consider hiring a personal trainer. Thanks!

I want to start exercising but I have no idea how to start. Knowing that a personal trainer seeks to understand one's individual needs and help design a tailored workout program, I'm confident that they will help me get the results that I want without getting injured. I'll certainly follow this and get in touch with a personal trainer right away.

I liked what you said about having a sustainable health and fitness lifestyle. I really want to have that kind of life, where I'm healthy but not losing weight rapidly. I think that I might look into getting a physical trainer or something like that to help me find how to do this.

My husband and I want to improve our lifestyle, and we've been considering getting a personal trainer. Your article had some great points about the benefits of a personal trainer, and I liked how you said that a person like this wastes no time, as your workout is planned before you even arrive. Thanks for the help; we'll keep this in mind when deciding if a personal trainer is right for us.
