Why you need a personal trainer

Reasons for a trainer:
  • Special Physical circumstances, e.g. previous injury, health issues
  • Knowledge - exercise can be intimidating, knowledge is power. Over challenging yourself or improper exercise can lead to injury or excess soreness, and these often derail efforts to develop and maintain a routine. Under challenging yourself can result in frustration from not achieving your goals and boredom.
  • Motivation - if you or those around you aren't interested in exercises, motivation will fade quickly. In regards to LACK OF ENERGY, a trainer can help distinguish between physical fatigue and emotional fatigue and help find what time of day is best for you to exercise to increase energy. In regards to LACK OF WILL POWER, a trainer can help you by setting appointments and work out plans, holding you to them, and monitoring progress on your goals.
  • Time Constraints - either you have a goal you are trying to achieve in a certain amount of time, or you have a limited amount of time to work out. Either way, a trainer will provide the most efficient work out plans to get you to your goal quickly and help you achieve the most in your individual workouts with the time you have.
  • Degree of Success.
  • Retention - consistency is the key to exercise success, not intense exercise. Your trainer will help you adjust to your lifestyle change and find the best ways to keep exercise manageable and enjoyable.
  • Enjoyment - if you don't like what you are doing, you will not continue to exercise. Period.
