5 reasons you should hire a personal trainer!

Have you ever had a moment at the gym where you’ve felt like you’re just going through the motions or winging it? Or watched someone do an exercise in a totally different way from how you’ve been doing it the entire last month? For beginners, exercise can feel overwhelming. Even people with more experience can reach a plateau in their fitness journey. It’s frustrating when progress slows or you stop seeing results from your training after putting in so much time and effort. So the question becomes, what can I do next to get out of this plateau or stop feeling like you are just going with it!

Is it worth it to hire a personal trainer? There’s the financial outlay, as well as the time commitment to consider. But no matter where you are in your fitness journey, it’s okay to take a step back and ask for extra help with your goals. Let’s dive into 5 reasons hiring a personal trainer may be beneficial for you!

  • Experienced Knowlegde

You don’t have to figure it out by yourself! Most personal trainers will have years of knowlegde and experience to help you reach your goals. Fast forward your progress by going to your trainer for the things you’d have to search hours for online! A trainer can see your situation more clearly from the outside and offer you a new perspective.

  • Accountability

Accountability is one of the main reasons why most people hire a personal trainer. If you’ve invested your money and there’s a trainer waiting at the gym for you to turn up, you’re much less likely to slack off than if you were left to your own devices. Your trainer will remind you of your goals and why you want to exercise in the first place. They’ll cheer you on, even when you don’t feel like it. And they’ll set you tasks to do in between sessions, and check that you’ve done them! Having an accountability coach will keep you focused. A personal trainer is the ultimate accountability partner for fitness. Their input will help you to achieve your goals.

  • Personalization

A trainer can design a program personalized to meet your specific goals, with enough variety to keep things exciting. That way, you won’t get bored and your motivation won’t suffer. Most people do the same workout each time they go to the gym, or they run the same route or do the same exercises at home. Not only is that pretty boring, but it also increases the risk of injury and the dreaded weight-loss plateau. A personal trainer will help you to mix up your routine and try new things. This could include experimenting with working out at different times of the day or trying out different equipment. 

  • Injury Prevention

If you’re not exercising correctly, you’re increasing your risk of injury. A good trainer can show you how to correct your technique, to help you stay safe when you’re working out. 

People with old injuries often worry about exercising, in case they trigger a flare-up. A personal trainer will know how to work around old injuries and stop them from getting coming back. 

  • Motivation

Our coaches here at 3D will always greet you at the door with a smile and be hyped up for your session! It’s hard to stay motivated when you’re working out alone. A trainer can help you to work out the best way to achieve your goals, either with an all-or-nothing or a step-by-step, more gentle approach. If you’re stuck in a rut and you want to take your training to the next level, an experienced trainer can help you do this too. They’ll know just how hard to push you, and you might surprise yourself with what you can achieve!
