Personal training isn't just for beginners, most if not all professionals have trainers helping them along the way, not because they're unable to do it alone rather they receive something they cannot achieve by themselves. Think of a personal trainer as a gym buddy who is there throughout your whole workout keeping you company making sure you progress and not make any mistakes, and that's just the tip of the iceberg!
Let's name some of the benefits to having a coach. Well simply booking in for an appointment makes creates a habit and subconscious act of having to come in and that in itself is huge! some mornings you might just not feel it and that's ok we all have those days, and if it were just you going to the gym to train on your own let's be real, you probably skip the day especially if its a training day you don't enjoy as much as other days, echmm legs, however because you are booked in you feel like you have to come in or else you're letting not only yourself down, but you might feel wrong to cancel a session for such a small inconvenience.
So thanks to making an appointments you end up building a habit of coming in, which then creates a routine in your life, which makes your like that little bit healthier! Now that you're in the gym, what now? That's one of the pros of having a trainer, you do not have to worry about that, you can just enjoy the workout and not think about what to do next for the hour! The coach assigned to you will take care of you program, how many weights you are to lift and that everything is how it is supposed to be! Is that all that a personal trainer can offer you? no, don't forget you are with a professional for a whole hour, you can ask them anything, make sure to use that to your advantage. As you're training and thinking if what you're doing is enough or if what you do out side of the gym is healthy, why not ask the person that literally studied it? As individuals we can learn so much and because there is so much information on the internet it is hard to get a reliable source on some things, maybe the trainer assigned to you could clear some things up for you.
