Think back to Thanksgiving. The season for drinking, eating, and lounging had just begun. You spent a week eating heavy yet delicious food, and tipping back a few beverages. Immediately following Thanksgiving, t'was the season to gain a solid 5-10 pounds. This was the tipping point. You knew that you had to do something to better your life. It was New Years Resolution time. You made a promise that starting on January 1st, 2013, you were going to jump on the path to health and fitness. Fried foods were out of the question. You bought a gym membership and planned on going six days a week. You planned on significantly limiting the amount of alcoholic beverages consumed. 2013 was going to be the year for you to get in the best shape of your life!
Fast forward to today. February is in the rear view, and you'd rather not remember the amount of times you visited the drive-thru. You're still hanging onto your gym membership, but you're paying close to $40 a visit at the rate that you go. It was easy to think that you wouldn't drink, but you can't help but pour yourself an extra glass of wine at the end of a long Winter's day. This is all completely normal, but how do you get out of this rut and back on the fast track to fitness? The solution: Hire a personal trainer. Whether you are looking to lose weight, build muscle, or just improve your overall level of fitness, a personal trainer will help you set and achieve your goals.
There are countless benefits of working out with a personal trainer, with the most important being injury prevention. Proper guidance from a trainer can help your muscles develop in a challenging yet safe way. Trainers address your awareness of activating muscles used in each exercise, and they know the right combination of exercises and stress proper form. Another benefit of personal training is motivation. Having someone provide your reinforcement for your efforts is important regardless of where, when, or why you exercise.
Some people are wary to hire a personal trainer because they think they can’t afford it. This is an unfortunate fallacy because the cost of a session varies from trainer to trainer. What most people don’t realize, is that they can split a session with a friend. This not only makes personal training much more affordable, but the component of training with someone else will elevate the intensity of the workout and increase your motivation.
