Many of us think we should embark on our fitness journey alone, that self-motivation, grit and willpower should be enough, so why hire a personal trainer? You probably wouldn’t cut your own hair or do your own dental check either, to get the best results, you’ll go to a professional. If you want the best from your body, hire a personal trainer.
It’s great that fitness has become so popular but it also means there is a lot of misinformation out there, getting expert guidance is key for making sure you are not only working out, but working out well and building your body up rather than wearing it out.
There are plenty of group exercise classes, apps and unfortunately some “personal trainers” that will motivate you through a generic workout but every body is different and we’ve all picked up different movement and postural quirks that will greatly affect your progress and the outcome of a generic fitness programme. It really is personal.
Your goals and motivators will also be different from the next person, a good trainer will get to know you and your objectives so we can support you every step of the way. And when life gets busy or stressful, you can feel confident that you have someone in your corner to keep you progressing so you don’t lose sight of your goals.
Investing in yourself may be the most profitable investment you ever make, yielding future returns and an immediate pay-off. The surest way to achieve a better quality of life, to be successful, productive, satisfied and confident is to make yourself a priority.
If you want tangible results, you need a bespoke plan that will work specifically for you, your goals and your body rather than adhering to a general conditioning plan.
