Top 6 Benefits of Training with a Personal Trainer

Friday, 6th April 2018

Training is tough. It can be gruelling and take a serious amount of grit and determination to smash those fitness goals… which is where a Personal Trainer can help!

Personal Trainers (or PTs) have so much more to offer than simply companionship and motivation in the gym, they’ll instruct and guide you through your workouts, create routines that work for you and make sure you see results.

If you’re still not convinced that regular PT sessions are for you, check out our top 6 benefits of enlisting a Personal Trainer…

1. Personalised Workout

We’ve all done it – turned up to the gym with no real goal in mind. Having a PT by your side can really help you focus. They’ll create a regime that works for you, so you can keep on track and achieve your goals, even when they’re not there.

2. Instruction

Your Pinterest fitness board can only offer so much advice when it comes to improving your form in the gym. A Personal Trainer can give you invaluable advice to help you perfect your technique (which can avoid injury in the long run).

3. Motivation

A PT is your very own gym cheerleader. Yes, they’ll push you and make you sweat, but ultimately all they want is for you to hit your goals. Plus, they’ll hold you accountable for your own success – you’ll no longer hit the snooze button when your PT is waiting for you at the gym!

4. Variety

Starting a new exercise regime can be a fun challenge, but when you hit a wall it can be difficult to motivate yourself to power through and overcome it. Your PT can help you see why you’ve plateaued and find ways for you to work through it and improve so that you keep seeing results.

5. Faster (& Better) Results

Whatever your reasons for exercising, whether it’s to shape up or train for an event, a PT will help you hit your target. They’ll find a routine that works for you and ensure you’re spending your time in the gym wisely. With the help of a PT, you’ll start seeing results in no time.

6. Set Realistic Targets

It’s easy to tell yourself that you’ll go to the gym daily. But in reality, it can be difficult to achieve, especially with family and work life. Your PT recognises this and will set you realistic targets. If you can only do a few sessions a week, they’ll create a routine that makes the most of your limited time.

So, if you want a workout that challenges you and delivers real results, a Personal Trainer could be just the motivation you need.
