I might be a little biased, but I think that hiring a personal trainer is something everyone should do at least (at the very least) one time in their lives. I’m speaking from experience because before I became a personal trainer, I hired one myself and it was eye-opening. Here are my top 5 signs that you could benefit from a personal trainer.
A trainer can personalize a program to help you lose fat and build muscle mass. This takes away any guesswork by you and gets you using your time at the gym effectively. They will also give you advice on what to do outside of the gym. Results will soon follow. Bonus: You also don’t have to think about what you need to do for exercise, because your trainer will do all the thinking for you. Your workout will be planned, efficient, and you will be in and out of the gym before you know it.
If you have someone waiting at the gym for you and you’re paying for their time, you’re more likely to go. If you skip the gym, not only are you letting yourself down, but you wasted your trainer’s time and threw money away, too.
Having a sore back, knee, hip or wrist is not fun and it hinders your daily activities. Maybe you’ve realized that hoisting your 2 year-old to your hip bothers your shoulder. Or that you’re walking around the neighborhood slower than you used to. A trainer should be able to assess why this might be happening and can work on correcting muscle imbalances that are causing you problems. This should help make day-to-day activities easier to perform, making life easier to navigate. Not so bad!
