Benefits of working with a personal trainer

Personal training isn’t just for people looking to get perfectly-toned, or training for athletic events. Anyone can benefit from working with a personal trainer. Personal trainers are fitness professionals who work with individuals to teach exercise form and technique, keep clients accountable to their exercise goals, and create customized workout plans based on an individual’s specific health and fitness needs.

Top 5 reasons to work with a personal trainer

  1. Stay motivated
  2. Live healthier
  3. Exercise safely and efficiently
  4. Have fun
  5. Reach your goals

How many sessions do I need with a personal trainer?

A good personal trainer will outline each step of the process, provide valuable programming, and ensure you are using correct form to yield the best results. This is a valuable investment with lifetime benefits. We suggest starting with 10 to 20 sessions with a personal trainer, and then evaluating further needs once your sessions are complete.

It’s impossible to optimize training without a program. Doing the same exercises over and over again for weeks, months, or even years, with little variability, is not effective, and this approach can often lead to overuse injuries, and muscle imbalances.

A program that is customized specifically to your fitness needs will help you reach your goals faster. Personal trainers can help you to incorporate the following into your program:

  • Frequency, selection, and order. Grouping the right exercises, on the right day, and in the correct order will vastly improve results.
  • Training loads, sets, repetitions, and volume. These variables should change slightly each week as your body adapts to the training stimulus.
  • Rest, recovery, technique, and nutrition. Each of these elements play a key role in achieving exercise goals and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
