It’s Monday tomorrow – you know that day when you are meant to make good on your healthy eating and exercising promises?!
If you need a little extra motivation why not look at getting a personal trainer?
The Central Nest’s very own health contributor, Riss from Larissa Beer Personal Training spills the beans on why you should consider getting your very own trainer!
A personal trainer is a great way to achieve your fitness goals. Whether you want to lose weight, work on muscle tone or improve your general fitness, having a personal trainer will keep you motivated and challenged.
We all flip through the magazines and long for Jens abs or Miranda’s legs, well believe it or not they were not born that way - their bodies come down to hard work and carefully thought out exercise programs by their trainers. Admittedly, we don’t all live on the same A-list budget as Jen and Miranda, but if you look around and you will find there are affordable personal trainers in your area that can help you achieve all of your fitness and health goals.
Today I will set out some of the very best features of having a personal trainer:
The benefit of a personal trainer is that they will listen to what you want to achieve and then sit down and work out a plan to get you there. This usually involves setting small, specific and goals so that you can see and feel progress on your way to achieving your ultimate end goal.
Having a personal trainer means your training program is customised specifically for you. A personal trainer will assess your strengths and weaknesses, take into account current or past illnesses and injuries and come up with a fitness plan accordingly. No two people are the same – so why should your exercise program be?
A good personal trainer will be enthusiastic about your training schedule. They will provide feedback and encouragement. A personal trainer is particularly beneficial when the going gets tough, you know those days when you’d rather just give up and lay on the lounge watching trashy T.V eat a bag of chips. They will continue to encourage and support you – even when you feel like throwing the towel in.
A personal trainer will use a variety of exercises to keep you motivated. They will give you cardio, strength, flexibility and nutritional guidance. They will also challenge you so you keep improving. There are various, different ways of changing a session, I, myself challenge my clients by giving them a fitness test and they have to try and beat the times they previously set this keeps them focused, allows them to see how far there fitness has come and gives them room for improvement.
PROPER TECHNIQUES AND SAFETY
Personal trainers ensure you are performing exercises safely and correctly. They are educated and trained in the correct techniques that will give you the best results but that prevent injury. Many times when we are left to our own devices exercises aren’t performed correctly and this is when injury is likely to occur.
It’s not just celebrities or athletes who use personal trainers. People of all ages, body types, and levels of fitness benefit from having a personal trainer. Having a trainer is a great way to get one on one motivational and an intense exercise program tailored for you and only you. Trainers don’t judge. They help you to see all of your successes, big and small, even when you can’t see them yourself.
So why don’t you try personal training today and experience some of these benefits for yourself?
