5 Benefits of One-on-One Personal Training

Mar 15, 2016

Truly committing to a healthy lifestyle can sometimes feel isolating, particularly when surrounded by others who indulge in convenient and tasty temptations at every turn. But getting fit and staying that way does not have to be a solo act. One-on-one personal training can help you overcome feelings of doubt and inadequacy and set you on a path to personal triumph.

We recently urged you to take a discerning look at the personal trainers in your local community before making a commitment to a studio or gym. Now that you’ve narrowed your options to a few qualified candidates, the following benefits of one-on-one personal training should help you take an informed leap into a healthier lifestyle:

  • Motivation – There’s nothing inherently wrong with working out on your own, assuming you’re a stickler for “sticking to it.” It’s a busy world, though, and setting aside time for one’s health often gets sidelined in lieu of other pressing matters and responsibilities. Hold yourself accountable by hiring a trainer. Paying for a session and adding it to your planner gets you that much closer to your goal, as will the trained professional who provides enthusiastic support and coaching every time you walk through the door.
  • Immediate feedback – User error is a common issue concerning everything from computers to cardio machines. Improper usage of gym equipment and poor form while exercising can squash a workout before it even begins. One-on-one personal training eliminates wasted time by providing on the spot feedback and swift, safe adjustments to your exercise routine.
  • Safety – Whether developing a nutrition plan to manage your weight or spotting you as you lift weights at the gym or studio, a client’s safety is of the utmost concern to a personal trainer. Extreme weight loss practices and overexertion during exercise can result in injury and harm. A trainer will ensure all steps you take toward physical fitness are properly planned and executed.
  • Variation – Even if the body and spirit are willing, monotony is a surefire way to lose interest in exercising. A personal trainer is equipped with the skillset to mix things up and keep workouts interesting. By implementing diverse routines, clients will remain engaged while garnering new abilities.
  • Know how – Your personal trainer has devoted years to studying nutrition and health. They’ve made it their job to share such knowledge with those who need that extra push toward a healthier lifestyle. You don’t have to go it alone.
