Here are the top 7 reasons of why you should hire a personal trainer and why it could be one of the best investments you’ll make in your overall health and well-being.
1. Motivation & Consistency
Exercising can be a hassle and at times, it may be the last thing you want to do. However, if you are being held accountable and have appointments set with a personal trainer, you are less likely to cancel them. You don’t want to let yourself and another person down!
2. Faster & Better Results
A personal trainer will challenge you to do one more rep or stay for 5 more minutes, pushing your limits which will produce better results. Plus, you will learn new exercises that will help define and shape your muscles.
3. Newfound Confidence
At the Y, we want you to walk out of the gym feeling confident and excited about the new you! Hiring a personal trainer will help you reach your goals, giving you a newfound confidence. Plus, a trainer can help with more than just fitness – exercise will help improve your mental health as well. Book your first session today!
Learn how and why a personal trainer assigns different exercises for you as well as the proper movement to ensure you’re feeling the exercise where you should. A personal trainer at the Y is better than a mirror as they can give you live feedback on how you’re performing an exercise. You won’t need a trainer forever – that’s the point of training! One day, you’ll be able to do all these exercises on your own without any outside help.
5. Reduced Chance of Injury
Learning the proper form for exercises will help prevent future injuries when you’re exercising on your own. Plus, it will help improve your reflexes and strengthen your tendons, ligaments, bones, and muscles to improve your overall health.
6. Establish A Lifetime of Exercise Habits
A personal trainer can help you develop a recipe for success and that includes establishing exercise habits that can last a lifetime. Your trainer will show you the best way to structure workouts to ensure you’re getting the most from each and every workout.
7. Most of All – Reach Your Goals!
Your personal trainer will start you out with small goals that will eventually lead to your final goal and show you exactly how to get there. Creating a timetable that maps out your goals will show you what to expect along the way and help you be realistic about your progress.
