4 + 1 Benefits to Having a Paid Gym Buddy.
"For the time being, let's not have you working out with the team. You'll be facing Viren all over again at the Montreal Olympics. I don't want you racing anyone now. I just want you running. You have to explore the limits of the one competitor above everyone else you've always loved to face.... Steve Prefontaine."
Bill Bowerman talking to Steve Prefontaine - Without Limits (1998)
We all need a person who can motivate us to reach another level. As social beings, we welcome having access to others for support and have a tendency to thrive from interactions. Having a NY certified personal trainer can help in reaching health and fitness goals as well as be an extension of one's support network to improve overall well being.
Aside from motivation, here are other benefits to having a personal trainer.
It has been shown that working with a fitness coach makes you more willing to stick to a program and go farther. One of the most difficult hurdles to overcome for beginners is building consistency. It is easier to slack-off and skip sessions when doing it alone.
A personal trainer can help get the same desirable effect; it is way harder to avoid sessions when you have an appointment with another person. A trainer can also keep you in line, and a regular schedule can turn your fitness program into a habit.
Having a personal trainer will minimize the risk of getting a new or re-injuring yourself. A personal trainer can correct your form and positioning when doing exercises, understand your weaknesses and limitations, guide you with proper technique, and keep you at your optimal pace.
The outlook of losing money you have invested towards a personal trainer can incentivize you to not skip sessions and keep going. If you are working out at home, a trainer can incorporate common household items like chairs, a couch, or stairs in your program --- eliminating the need to buy equipment.
Tailor fitting a Program to your Specific Needs
An individualized program will let you achieve the best results. A good personal trainer will assess your needs and come up with a program suitable to your requirements. You may want to have a bikini-bod for your next summer outing, bulk up for that bouncer job, or correct a leg imbalance; and while a cursory search online will yield pages of workouts you can follow, they may not be the correct option for you.
There are factors which will affect your success. Frequency, intensity, type of exercise, and time are the main four but age, health, and strength should also be considered.
In summary; a personal trainer can provide you with guidance and tools which are otherwise unavailable. The benefits far outweigh the cost and you may find that it is well worth the investment.
