Welcome to a brand new, never before seen, 2017! Did you set some goals for yourself in the New Year? Most likely they include losing weight, or getting stronger, or simply improving your overall health and wellbeing. Regardless of your goals, a personal trainer can provide highly individualized instruction, with a heaping helping of motivation.This year you are determined to be different, to do this differently. Who says you have to go it alone? Here are some of the benefits of personal training and top reasons why you may want to invest in a personal trainer this year:
1. It’s ALL About YOU
Who doesn’t love a little personal attention? With a personal trainer, you have fitness programs tailored to you, the individual, not the other way around. Instead of trying to fit a square peg into a round hole, a personal trainer looks at the holistic you – from fitness, form and diet – to maximize your precious gym time, and reach your goals efficiently (and happily!).
2. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
You could work out in front of a mirror, or watch YouTube channels all day (sometimes without even exercising!), but there’s no substitute for an informed, highly educated professional assisting you while you perform your exercise routine. Your personal physical trainer is there to guide and educate. They’ll adjust your form for maximum fitness effectiveness and most importantly minimal injury.
3. Menu Motivators
Most of us are already wary of the <insert high-calorie delicious foods here> eaten over the holidays. Luckily, many of the Village Clubs personal trainers have extensive nutritional knowledge and can assist in developing meal plans to complement your fitness program. For many, this is the most difficult aspect of their health and fitness goals. A trainer provides guidance and support for creating healthy eating habits that are manageable and achievable – so your hard work has a chance to pay off. Personal trainers are masters of motivation, and, chances are if you schedule an appointment, you’ll show up and work harder under their watchful eye. In short, they keep you accountable with a smile on their face and a friendly high five.
4. 2-4-6-8 Who Do We Appreciate?
You, that’s who! A unique benefit of personal training is that a personal trainer is your fitness goal champion, committed to your success – a cheerleader, fan club and motivational speaker all rolled into one. They will create a safe, supportive space for you to comfortably pursue your fitness goals, or take the intimidation factor out of the gym for newcomers. Don’t be surprised if you develop a close, lifelong friendship with your trainer.
5. They Love Their Jobs
Let’s face it, the gym can get boring, which quickly leads to falling off the fitness treadmill, as it were. Personal trainers love to play and move, for many it’s why they chose this profession, they’ll mix it up, keeping your workout challenging, interesting and, dare we say, something to look forward to?
6. You’ll Love What You See
Remember that mirror, mirror on the wall? Now, look again. Before long, you’ll begin to see the results of a custom-designed fitness plan (and a lot of hard work) before your own eyes. Your personal trainer takes the guesswork out of how to spend your time at the gym with a thoughtfully prepared plan designed to help you achieve your fitness goals quickly.
