Being educated while exercising is essential in maximizing effectiveness and reducing risk of injury. A personal trainer will teach you everything you need to know about exercising. They will put together the perfect routine to suit your needs and demonstrate the correct technique for each exercise.
Exercising can be a hassle and at times it may feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day. Whatever the reason, sometimes it’s difficult to find the motivation. As little as 1 session a week can give you the boost you need and having someone in your corner to push and encourage you can be rewarding. Sometimes all we need is a little more support.
Accountability goes hand-in-hand with motivation. Throw the “I’ll go tomorrow; I’m too tired” excuses out the door because a personal trainer will ensure that won’t happen. Having that session booked gives you incentive to follow through and is the fastest way to achieve your goals.
A common misconception is that personal trainers are high energy, in your face, and work you to exhaustion with heavy lifting, which is far from the truth. Remember you are in a safe environment inside a over 50’s club. Be sure to tell your trainer what you’re looking for and together you can develop a plan tailored to you. This way your personal trainer can set realistic goals based on your abilities. This will help you achieve you goals faster than you thought possible while staying safe.
It’s easy to get bored with your fitness routine. Maybe you’ve plateaued or aren’t seeing the results you want. A personal trainer will challenge you and take you to the next level. They will introduce new exercises to keep your workouts fun, fresh and keep your body guessing.
Your personal trainer will start you out with small goals that will eventually lead to your final goal and show you exactly how to get there. Mapping out your goals will show you what to expect along the way and help you be realistic about your progress.
Studies have shown that there are better strength improvements with supervised training than without. Personal trainers will coach, push, and motivate you more than you may be able to yourself. Booking in with you trainer is really no different than scheduling any other appointment.
More Than Fitness Your personal trainer is much more than just a fitness coach. You will spend so much time with your trainer that he/she can become your unofficial therapist. Yes, they are there to help improve your fitness but they also care about your well-being. Trainers can help you improve nutrition and even your mental health by giving you exercises aimed at relieving stress. Don’t let intimidation hold you back! The benefits of personal training outweigh your fears by a long shot and can really help you achieve your goals. At Duke’s, we want to create the best fitness experience for you. So what are you waiting for? Good luck and happy training!
