Whether you have weight-loss goals, want to improve fitness levels, or are overcoming an illness or injury, there are many reasons why a personal trainer (PT) can help you achieve your health and fitness aspirations.
If you’re serious about giving your health a boost this year, Hadyn Luke, Director of CMS Fitness Courses takes a look at why having a personal trainer by your side can be critical to your success and how to find the right PT for you.
A bespoke fitness plan tailored to your needs
Unlike joining in a fitness class or going for a jog several times a week, a personal trainer will work with you to create a bespoke fitness plan that is tailored to your specific goals. A professional and qualified PT will have experience and knowledge about fitness and nutrition. They will use this experience and knowledge to implement a fitness and diet regime that helps an individual achieve their own fitness and health aspirations.
Aides motivation and establishes a lifetime exercise habit
With a personal trainer by your side, you are more likely to stay motivated and stick to your training and diet schedules than if you were training alone. The retained levels of motivation that is achieved through training with a personal trainer can often lead to exercise and eating healthily becoming part of a normal routine, where not exercising is considered unusual.
As Active.com notes, in a feature about the benefits of having a personal trainer, even if you can’t afford to have a PT full-time, “take what you learned during your time with one and apply it at the gym, or at home, and keep it going. Once working out becomes a routine it will become easier to maintain.”
Overcome exercise plateaus
When it comes to exercise, it’s easy to reach a plateau and not be able to push forward and move beyond a certain level. A PT will help push you to stay motivated and blast through any exercise obstacles and plateaus, helping increase fitness levels, improve performance and go past any hard-to-beat and suborn Personal Bests.
Importance of using a reputable, accredited PT, with proper qualifications
Whilst employing a personal trainer comes with a whole host of fitness, diet and lifestyle advantages, it is important to use a reputation and accredited PT, who has proper qualifications, such as a diploma in fitness instructing and personal training.
A properly qualified and accredited personal trainer will know how to use gym equipment proficiently and will be able to teach you proper exercise techniques. This will help reduce the chance of you sustaining an injury whilst exercising, meaning you can work out in a safe and injury-free environment.
An accredited personal trainer will have in-depth knowledge about diet and nutrition and will be able to advise their clients on what nutrition they require to reach their health and weight-loss goals whilst maintaining a healthy, balanced diet.
A qualified PT will also know which exercises need to be done and how often in order to achieve the right balance between fat loss and muscle gain.
Before embarking on any weight loss or exercise regime, it is advisable to seek advice from someone with knowledge and experience in the fitness industry to advise you on how to reach and maintain your fitness goals in a healthy and sustainable manner.
