Despite PT’s being wildly popular in fitness circles, newcomers to the gym–and even a lot of experienced gym goers still don’t see the benefits of having one. However, we believe that a quality personal trainer can make a world of difference in your training and fitness life. So, to prove that, we came up with this list of 10 benefits of having a personal trainer!
PTs Are Perfect For Learning New Workouts
The main reason why anyone signs on with a PT at first is usually to learn new workouts and techniques. This is because for most people, they can admit that they only know the very basics of working out. Your push-ups, sit-ups, bench press, etc,. PTs can help you to learn new workouts that will target certain areas of your body more directly, and help to generate better results overall.
PTs Keep You Company
A lot of people will admit that they don’t enjoy the feeling of going to the gym all alone. Even with some headphones and a good podcast it can get boring after a while. PTs can be that person who helps keep you company and breaks up the boring feeling of wandering a weight room by yourself. They can talk you through the workout, provide encouragement and feedback, and just be a general friend during that time!
Promote Gym Safety
The gym can actually be a rather dangerous place if you don’t know what you’re doing. In the UK alone nearly 50% of those who actively workout or do sport have admitted to having been injured during their workouts. PTs can help reduce this risk by ensuring you have proper form, a spotter, and are using the equipment safely.
They Push You To Work Harder
A significant portion of working out is mental. It’s difficult to push past the mental barriers from what you think you can do, into what you actually can do. PTs are able to help push you psychologically to get the most out of your workout, and bring you to new limits daily.
They Can Help You Adjust To Fit Your Body Needs
Not everyone has the same physical limitations. Some are stronger in areas that others may be weak. This is important to know when developing a workout routine. PTs can help work with your strengths, weaknesses, injuries, and more to get a workout that is tailored to you and what you can accomplish safely. You don’t need to rely on generic online workouts that may not work for your body type!
PTs Help You Train To Meet Your Goals
Whether it be losing 5kg or training for a marathon, PTs can help you to achieve your goals. They can come up with a workout and nutrition routine that will be suited to get the results you are looking for within the timeframe you are looking to achieve them. If you have a target to hit in fitness, a PT is going to help guarantee that you do.
PTs Reduce Your Chance of Quitting
Let’s face it, all of us have quit on our workout goals at one point or another. Hitting your targets is more about discipline and determination than it is about motivation. PTs are there to make sure you make it to the gym when you are supposed to be–without the excuses. Plus, if you are hiring a PT for their services, you are far less likely to miss out on what you already paid for.
They Are Flexible
Most PTs make their living working around their client’s schedules. They work flexible hours so they can provide their services to a wider range of clientele. It’s almost guaranteed that if you work odd hours or days, you can find a PT who will be willing to accommodate you. This means you can have access to their expertise when you need it.
They Get Results Faster
PTs know what it takes to get results in the most efficient manner possible. They can help to target your problem areas, and cut out all the added fluff that isn’t really helping. With a PT you can expedite your fitness journey and get to the results you are looking for faster, and more accurately.
They Develop Fitness Independence
After a while of working with a PT, you will start to notice that you have learned and developed far more than you ever expected. They have taught you so much that you feel confident going to the gym on your own, and maybe even spreading some of that knowledge to others! PTs help build independence in the gym, so eventually you can go out on your own with all your newfound confidence and expertise!
