When talking about hiring a personal fitness trainer, many think it is about hiring a drill sergeant that constantly keep screaming in their face, a person who helps cleaning up after them or someone that helps them count how many repetitions are left in the set. On the contrary, a certified personal trainer is something quite different. It is true that some trainers have a drill sergeant approach to helping their client, an approach I don’t believe in. We do help you count your reps to help you focus on the form of the movement and occasionally we can help put the weights back where they belong after an exercise. But that is not the most important, any friend or workout partner can do that. A certified trainer will also teach you how to lift properly and demonstrate how to use the gym equipment in the right way.
So, let me give you some reasons why you should hire a personal trainer in case you are still hesitating.
A personal trainer not only serves as a coach, but as an educator. A role model that will keep motivate and encourage you throughout the workout.
In today busy lifestyle many find it hard to make it a priority to spend time in the gym, and many will find some excuse to skip their workout. This is also one of the reasons that many fail to reach their goals or give up half way. A personal trainer, will schedule an appointment with you, help you to plan around your busy schedule and help you eliminate any excuse for not exercising.
