Many people go to the gym lacking knowledge in the field of fitness. My father is a personal trainer, so I admit I have some insight on personal fitness, and I have seen the good and bad points of hiring one. Personal trainers generally don’t come cheap, but they easily worth the money, and you’d find that not too far after you have hired one. But what are the good points of hiring a personal trainer?
Personal trainers provide improved workouts since they know all about the muscular system, and which muscles work best together. For example, a personal trainer will tell you to go back and biceps one day, and then go chest and triceps another day since these areas of the body work best together. Since a personal trainer contains this knowledge, your progress is increased, and you get to where you want to be physically much faster.
If you go to the gym alone a personal trainer will keep you attentive, and you’ll have someone to talk to. Going to the gym alone can make you not want to come back. But knowing that you have a personal trainer there that has become your friend, it makes you want to go back. If your personal trainer isn’t friendly, the workout usually won’t be as good, and you may not want to go back. I suggest finding a friendly, but also experienced personal trainer to get the both of best worlds.
If you hire a personal trainer, your money is well spent. With your rapid growth in successful physical goals, your gym membership was worth every penny. If you hadn’t had a personal trainer you may have been doing the wrong exercises, which would slow down your progress altogether.
Since a personal trainer knows all about the body, as I stated before, they know what to do, and what not to do. A personal trainer is also there to ensure that you do not hurt yourself while exercising in any way. Many fitness novices go straight for the bench press and have no idea what they are doing. They don’t have a spotter, they haven’t stretched in any way, and they just pile weight on like crazy. If a personal trainer was there they would have a spotter if a sticky situation were to occur, you would have stretched, ensuring that you don’t pull a muscle which would hinder your fitness process, and a personal trainer would tell you to start small and work your way up. Working out pushes you to the limits sometimes, but if you start over your limit you can easily become injured.
A personal trainer is well worth the money. If you don’t have enough money to hire a personal trainer, at least take the time to look up some basic information about working out, which muscles work the best together, what stretches to do, safety precautions, and so on. The best way to increase your own safety in any situation is to have knowledge for that situation.
