It’s holiday time, and almost New Years, and we all know what that means, New Year’s resolutions. If you are like most people, then chances are you have in the past, or currently are, making a New Year’s resolution to lose weight or get in shape. However, as studies will show, a large percentage of us will not obtain these goals. This is why I believe a personal trainer can be a big help. As a personal trainer in McLean, here are my top five reasons why you should be using a personal trainer.
Reason 1 accountability. Let’s face it there are going to be days where you just don’t feel like working out. Work is busy, the kids driving you crazy, and frankly you just don’t feel like doing it. So you skip the day. Now what happens? Does the gym call you and ask you where you are? Of course not. So as you can see there’s no accountability. By having a personal trainer, they’re going to make sure you get your workouts in. They may text you, they may call you, and harass you, about getting your workouts in and being consistent. This is of major help and the accountability that you receive with a personal trainer is priceless.
Reason 2 consistency. Just like accountability above, your body is going to thrive on consistency. So many of us will have a good week one week, and then a bad week the next, and so on and so forth. Your body does not thrive on inconsistency. It wants the constant consistent flow of workouts and diet and as a result it will give you the results you seek. By having a trainer, like accountability above, they will keep you on your toes and make sure that you are consistently getting your workouts in.
Reason 3 safety. If you are a novice, or just getting started in this fitness thing, then chances are you might not know the correct way to perform the exercises or how to work out. Therein lies and increased risk of injury, and obviously injury will prevent you from obtaining your goals. By working with a personal trainer they will ensure that you have proper form and technique that will help in preventing injury.
Reason 4 proper form. As we mentioned above, by using incorrect form you run the risk of injury. Injuries can be frustrating and prevents you from being able to obtain your goals. Working with a trainer, they will make sure that you are using the proper form and technique for each individual exercise which will help you target target the muscles more correctly and keep you safe.
Reason 5 results. Let’s face it, why are we even doing this in the first place? We want results! Results are what keep us motivated and results are what makes us feel good. If we see results, the chances are we will stick with our program and make it more of a lifestyle. By working with a trainer, the likelihood of you obtaining the results are you looking for become a lot more apparent because of the reasons we mentioned above.
So as you can see, using a personal trainer can be very beneficial. Personal trainers will help you establish accountability, consistency, safety, proper form, and will help you get the results you want quickly.
