REASONS YOU MIGHT NEED A PERSONAL TRAINER AND THEIR BENEFITS
Wherever you are on your exercise journey, a personal trainer may be just what you need to finally reach your fitness and weight loss goals.

From helping you reach your fitness goals and how to exercise safely with a pre-existing injury or chronic condition, hiring a Personal Trainer could be one of the best investments you'll make in your overall health and wellbeing.
Most people work harder in the presence of others so having a personal trainer by your side can provide the encouragement, motivation and drive you need to kickstart your routine. A trainer can also help you set goals, create a personalised fitness plan, keep you challenged and on track towards reaching your fitness goals, as well as celebrating milestones along the way as you achieve your goals.
If you have trouble sticking to a new routine whether it's exercise or changing eating habits, this is where a trainer can help. A trainer can help you with mindset, give you tools to help you overcome what's been holding you back, and hold you accountable so you won't have any excuses to avoid your commitment to exercise and achieving your goals.
Personal training is much more than fitness. Trainers can help you reach your fitness goals, but they're also there to help improve your overall wellbeing and can assist in improving not only your physical, but mental health. They care about how stressed you are, because that will impact how motivated you are in your sessions and they care if you’re unhappy in an aspect of your life such as work or a relationship, as this could result in unhealthy eating.
4. Expert advice
By investing in a personal trainer you receive personalised training and expert guidance and advice on what equipment to use that is right for you and the types of exercises that are best for your body shape and goals. A trainer can also cut through all the fitness misconceptions that are out there and give you credible information and direction on your fitness journey. A trainer can help remove the guesswork so you can put all your energy toward accomplishing your goals.
5. Fresh ideas and inspiration
If you've hit a plateau and struggling with your fitness, a trainer can provide a wider variety of exercises and how to add new exercises and workouts to a personalised program that also fits around your likes and dislikes. This will keep your program interesting and fun, so you're more likely to stick with your trainer and see results long-term.
6. Exercise safety
A personal trainer is your best option if you're new to exercise and don't know what you're doing; suffer from a pre-existing injury that's limiting your recovery and road back to fitness; working out during pregnancy; or getting back to exercising post natal. A good trainer will ensure you are moving in a safe and effective way, so depending on what type of issue you may have, there may be certain exercises and movements you won't be able to do. A trainer will help you learn proper exercise technique which can improve your results and prevent annoying injuries in the future.
7. Don't like gyms?
Not everybody enjoys the atmosphere of a crowded gym, or having to wait for the machine you want to use to become available. With a personal trainer, you aren’t limited to working out in a gym where equipment is available. A mobile personal trainer can come to you and will bring some equipment with them, but you don't always need equipment to exercise. Whether it’s in the comfort of your own home or park nearby, with a personal trainer you have the flexibility to workout wherever suits you best.
Results differ for everyone. A personal trainer can help you get the results you want as long as you're willing to put in the required effort. You will need to train once or twice a week with a personal trainer and follow their advice with regards to your exercise and eating habits. A great trainer will also provide information, tools and resources on your nutrition and lifestyle habits to maximize your results and this is something you can take with you and incorporate in your journey to a healthier, active lifestyle in the long term.
If you’re struggling to get the results you desire, lacking drive and motivation, feel you need to mix up your workout routine or someone to help you push your limits, then a personal trainer may be just what you need.
