If getting fit were easy, then we wouldn’t need personal trainers. But the harsh reality is that it takes a lot of motivation and hard work to improve our fitness and lose weight. A Personal Trainer is an expert and there to support and help you along each step of this process. While you might not be used to having someone so focused on your workouts, you’ll begin to love them and yourself when you start to see results.

They are focused just on you

One of the best things about a personal trainer is that they are totally focused on your during the workout session. Unlike classes where the teacher has to guide up to 30 people at a time, your PT can check to see if you are doing your moves correctly. This is important as exercising properly, burns the optimum amount of calories. This makes your workouts much more effective.

They are invested in your success

The second reason why you should love you PT is that they are as invested in your fitness programme as you are. If you succeed, they succeed. If you are happy with your results, then you will tell others, and they will get word of mouth referrals, which is fantastic for their business.  

They have access to private equipment

Another reason to love your personal trainer is that they have access to professional level equipment away from the public gyms. Maybe you are feeling too self-conscious, to go to the gym?  Or are you too distracted by the whole gym culture to get a good workout while you’re there? Then getting away from these distractions can actually work in your favor.

They can boost your motivation

There is nothing like having someone on your side to help you boost your motivation. That’s why we see such good results in personal training for all types of people. Having a PT will help you get out of bed for those early morning workouts. They can hold you accountable if you are not exercising enough. They can even do the exercise with you, so you don’t feel so alone on your journey.

They will praise you when you are doing well

Another reason people love having personal trainers is that they praise them for their successes. People with low self-esteem often only focus on their faults and don’t give themselves enough credit for their success in life. It’s much easier to keep your motivation high with someone there to remind you of all you have achieved and how far you have come. This will help you to succeed in your long term goals.

They are qualified for your safety

Another reason people love working with personal trainers is that they know that they are safe in their hands. It’s easy to injure yourself or push yourself too hard when you are new to working out. A personal trainer will assess your fitness before you start your regime, so they will know how to do each exercise safely. They will also know how far to push you without risking injury, which can be a real motivation drain and delay your progress further.
