Use the important skills that your trainer is teaching you, and apply them to your own workout. You can use the workout they created, or combine different ideas to make your own workout. Your personal trainer will hold you accountable for working towards your exercise and health Dunwoody goals.

5. Results. Working with a personal trainer guarantees results. Your exercise and health goals may be bigger and take more time to reach than the scheduled time that you have with your personal trainer, but setting small achievable goals along the way will show you that your body and health are improving. From losing weight, to building muscle mass, to improving your health, your personal trainer can help you see results.

Working towards your exercise and health goals with a personal trainer is sure way to see results. The skills and knowledge you learn from a personal trainer will last your whole life, helping you to make choices that will better your health over time.
