5 Reasons Why You Should Work With a Personal Trainer

5 Reasons Why You Should Work With a Personal Trainer

By Nordic Balance

Are you struggling to get back into the gym, feeling unmotivated post-lockdown or simply not seeing results from your hard work?


A personal trainer (PT) could help. A personal trainer can be a great resource from tailored training programs designed for weight loss or gains, improved motivation or guidance on improving technique.


A personal trainer offers support, tips and varied training approaches to help you reach your goals. Read on for our top 5 reasons why you should work with a personal trainer.


You don’t know where to start


The gym can be pretty daunting, especially if you’re a total beginner.


If you’ve never tried to set up a targeted fitness regime, the complexity of the whole thing will probably come as a bit of a shock. Knowing what equipment to use and how to use it, how much to do, and which exercises (just for starters) isn’t easy.


A PT knows just how to create an effective workout programme. Then, they can tailor-make your routine – from the exercise types to the minute details (like numbers of reps), your PT will have it covered.


With constant feedback from your trainer, you’ll know precisely how you’re progressing – which is bound to make you feel motivated! 

You need to be challenged


If there’s no one to hold us accountable, we lose sight of our set goals.   Shared accountability is a big step forward in a ‘realistic’ direction. Ongoing sessions with a PT give you the motivation, tracking, guidance, and accountability you need to achieve better results. 


Think of them as an angel on your shoulder, convincing you to move off the sofa or not to eat that second helping of cake. Or help you burn it off when you do!


It’s important to say that the benefits of a PT aren’t all physical. Their support, encouragement and can-do attitude will boost motivation. They also really help to keep our minds in the right place. 


They will praise your successes, support you if you’re not quite hitting your targets, and encourage you to keep challenging yourself. 


A great example of this is by keeping your workout routines exciting. So, rather than doing the same thing every time you go to the gym, you can actually have fun!


You’re training for a specific goal, sport or event 


Personal trainers aren’t just there to help beginners. If you’re training for something specific, having this on-hand expertise is fantastic. 


Qualified personal trainers offer a vast range of expertise. These skills include key fields like nutrition, strength and conditioning, cardiovascular programmes, mobility drills, core and strength training exercises, sports or running physiotherapy, and sports coaching, to name a few.


They can work with you to create specific workouts, a practical training routine, and limit the risk of injury. 


With their help, you take your sporting performance to a whole new level. 

You want to know how to work out alone or at home


You might fancy switching up your existing routine. If you are not interested in exercising in a gym, or you want to combine home workouts, you can still use the expertise of a PT. 


In just a couple of one-off sessions, they can recommend effective exercises to you (which you probably wouldn’t have thought of on your own), create a targeted workout plan, and guide you through the correct way to use equipment, so that you limit the risk of injury. 


This dependable, expert support is fantastic to have if you’re working out at home or if you plan on working out alone, but you still want to get a bit of feedback now and again. This help will give you confidence and enable you to see the best results.


Your not seeing any results from your hard work


It can be so demoralising if you do not see the results you hoped for. If this is your current fitness situation, you could gain a lot by seeking a PT’s guidance. 


A PT can assess your current workout routine and modify it so that it’s more effective. Trainers may do this by adding in or taking away exercises, advising you on your goals, helping you to keep pushing yourself, and teaching you where you’re going wrong. 


Working with an expert will help to improve your physical performance and achieve long term results. Thanks to their wide range of specialist skills (plus the rest of the points listed above), you will be able to reap more rewards from your efforts.
