Now is the best time to start a personal training program. Once the weather chills out, you won’t want to go anywhere unless you’re already committed. Also, you’re probably imbibing and indulging at all those summer parties and barbeques, so you’ve got to get into a routine to keep the pounds from packing on. If you’re on the fence, here are a few of the top reasons to get a personal trainer this August.
This may sound odd at first as you wonder, “How will I possibly feel comfortable working out in front of an attractive and physically-fit stranger?” Indeed this apprehension prevents scores of people from joining in on the fun, but strangely enough, everyone who has worked with a personal training program says they feel more secure and comfortable once they joined. It can be weird starting a new gym membership, surrounded by strangers – some of whom are clearly in peak fitness and simply maintaining their wonderful bodies. A trainer is there to give you support, encouragement and confidence. Trainers can tell you how to use each weight machine and make sure you’re making the right motions to get the maximum results. As you get to know your trainer better, you’ll find it’s like working out with a friend – a very knowledgeable and supportive friend.
Do you know what it takes to get the maximum workout every time? Maybe you have a general idea, but personal training staff has attended schooling to learn the elements of proper nutrition and exercising. They’ll be able to tell you the best foods to eat before and after your workout to get adequate fueling. They’ll also customize workouts with the proper work and rest intervals to keep your body burning fat. They can show you the correct techniques so you build more lean muscle and they will know when to increase the difficulty level to prevent you from reaching a weight loss plateau before you’re ready. Personal trainers are also instructed how to handle a number of different physical conditions, whether you are trying to rehabilitate an injury, prevent heart disease, or train for a particular sport.
It’s easy to get distracted. With work and life, it’s easy to say “I don’t have time to get to the gym.” And even if you do go to the gym, there is no guarantee you are necessarily getting a good workout. Having a trainer there with you will keep you focused and disciplined on the task at hand. The consistent scheduling and regular appointments make squeezing your workout in much easier. And sometimes, when you want to quit, all it takes is a phone call or a word of encouragement from your trainer to get you back on the right path.
