Why Hire a Personal Trainer?
Posted By: Mount Wachusett Community College on 04/06/2015
A relationship with a trainer creates accountability and positive reinforcement.
Many people feel that the hardest part of exercising regularly is making it a habit. Often, our good intentions are not enough! Making a commitment to meet regularly with someone to work out can be the first step in changing your lifestyle. Trainers provide one on one motivation. They help an individual see and overcome the personal obstacles that can make it tough to fit in time to exercise.
A personalized fitness plan focuses on individual health concerns.
Surveys show that approximately fifty percent of Personal Training clients have special medical needs such as diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, chronic pain, injury rehabilitation, etc. There is no such thing as bad exercise – the question is who is it appropriate for? Personal Trainers become the third part of the personal wellness triad along with the client and their health care professionals.
Personal training leads to setting realistic goals and learning proper technique.
This means you’ll train without getting injured and you’ll maximize your results!
Hiring a personal trainer is like getting on the fast-track to fitness!
When it’s all about you there is no wasted time. Personal Trainers design workouts based on the science of getting fit – they utilize the research available from organizations like the American College of Sports Medicine, the American Council on Exercise, the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, and others and make it possible to avoid the pitfalls of unsafe fitness trends. Quality individualized programming will include cross-training and continually offer a client the opportunity to learn new skills.
Personal trainers change the way we see ourselves and enable us to discover our hidden potential.
The concept of “I think, therefore I am” has everything to do with creating successful lifestyle changes and often times we have been conditioned to defeat ourselves before we get started. The best Personal Trainers know that we are the proud owners of the only machine where the more you use it, the better it gets! They focus on each client’s strengths while working to improve their weaknesses. Through specific feedback and encouragement clients get perspective on fitness as a journey instead of a gift for the chosen few. Personal Trainers are personal coaches who help us dare to believe, dare to try, and dare to become more than we are today!
