Purpose of Personal Trainer
There are a variety of reasons why it is beneficial to hire a personal trainer. Educated trainers can design and implement an effective workout program that is targeted to you and your fitness goals. Quality trainers can help you lose body fat, improve your cardiovascular health, build strength and develop muscular tone. They understand what it takes to achieve results and know how to get you there. They ensure that you’re performing each exercise while utilizing the correct technique. This improves an exercise’s effectiveness and also reduces your risk for injury from performing an exercise incorrectly. The most significant benefit for many, however, is the accountability that trainers provide. Let’s be honest. Most people dislike or even hate working out. It takes an awful amount of willpower to be consistent with your training sessions. Having an appointment with a personal trainer improves your chances that you will get your workout done. A quality trainer will also make sure that when you show up to knock out your session, you push yourself and work hard. There’s no way you can take an exercise off or slack on a set when you have a good trainer by your side that’s not allowing you to let up. If you’re serious about improving your health and fitness, hiring a personal trainer is a quality investment decision.
Personal Versus Professional
A personal trainer is someone you hire to do a difficult job. They must not only understand training principles but must also consistently motivate and push you beyond your limits. There are times when you are likely to feel unmotivated, but they’re there to ensure you still get your quality workout session done. A personal trainer that you don’t know and hire is able to more effectively motivate and push you because they’re not worried about hurting your feelings. They are only concerned with getting you the fitness results you’re looking for, not becoming your friend. This is why it’s important to not hire someone who is already your friend to train you. This complicates the relationship. It makes it very difficult for the trainer to be tough on you and push you when you may have plans to socialize later. The personal trainers of our Microfitness and Cavemantraining programs never allow this to happen.
Keeping Relationship Professional
Physically taxing workouts can often create a type of emotional bond between personal trainer and client. Because you regularly go through a difficult period together, it’s not abnormal for this to occur. However, it’s essential that the relationship between personal trainer and client remains professional instead of friendly. A personal trainer is not someone you hire to talk to and discuss your day with. Our Microfitness and Caveman Training program trainers are strict about keeping their own and your focus on your fitness goals and your training sessions in the gym only. Keeping conversational topics restricted to health and fitness will prevent a friendship, and therefore an ineffective training relationship, from developing.
