do you know if hiring a personal trainer is the right choice for you?
the following things a personal fitness trainer can help you do:
your overall fitness. IDEA surveys show the primary reason people hire
personal trainers is to get professional assistance to improve strength, flexibility,
endurance, posture, balance, coordination and cardiovascular health. A trainer
will monitor your progress and fine-tune your program as you go, helping you
work your way off plateaus.
2. Reach or Maintain a Healthy Weight. Body fat reduction, weight reduction
or management, body shaping and toning can all be achieved with the aid of
a qualified trainer, who can help you set realistic goals and determine safe
strategies, all while providing the encouragement you need.
3. Learn to Stick to It. Sticking with well-intentioned plans is one of
the biggest challenges exercisers face. Qualified personal trainers can provide
motivation for developing a lifestyle that places a high priority on health
4. Focus on your Unique Health Concerns. IDEA surveys show that 50 percent
of personal trainers' clients have special medical needs, such as arthritis,
diabetes or obesity. A personal trainer can help you with these or other issues,
including low-back pain, rehabilitation from injury and pre/post natal training.
Your trainer can work with your physician, physical therapist or other health
care provider to plan a safe, efficient program that will speed your recovery
or enable you to reach your health goals.
5. Find the Right Way to Work Out. You will learn the correct way to
use equipment, and appropriate form and technique for cardiovascular work
and free weight training.
6. Stop Wasting Time. Get maximum results in minimum time with a program
designed specifically for you. Workouts that use your strengths and improve
on your weaknesses are efficient and effective.
7. Learn New Skills. Want to improve your strength and flexibility
for tennis, skiing or golfing? An individualized program can improve your
overall conditioning and develop the specific skills you need.
8. Enhance Your Mind, Body and Spirit. A personal trainer can act
as a doorway to new personal growth experiences. Many trainers provide
mind-body activities, such as yoga or tai
chi sessions. Your trainer may help you uncover new insights about yourself
or find potential you didn't realize you had.
9. Benefit from the Buddy System. What could be better than making
a commitment to regularly meet with someone who will help you provide you
with individualized attention and support?
10. Take Charge of Your Program and Do It YOUR Way. With the right
trainer, you can find the exercise program that works best for you. Are you
more comfortable with a demanding program or a gentler approach? Would you
like to train at home or at work, a club or in a trainer's facility? How many
times per week or month do you want to meet a trainer, and for how long? Carefully
choosing a personal trainer enables you to select the type of guidance that
will benefit you. You can get fit and healthy your way and take the ultimate
responsibility for your own health.
