5 reasons to hire a personal trainer

Many factors can affect your motivation, progress and results. Hiring a personal trainer can make all the difference in achieving your fitness goals. Here is why:

1. An additional source of motivation

One of the most difficult aspects of maintaining a training routine can be getting the workouts done, and regularly.

Studies (including one published in Nature Communications magazine) show that joining someone for a sports session will influence whether or not you go.

Working with a personal trainer will give you the boost you need to work out - in person or virtually - not only during your sessions, but hopefully several other times during the week.

You may also find that you work harder with a coach by your side than you would on your own.

2. A personalised training programme

Personal trainers create a specific training programme for you, based on the goals you wish to achieve.

The personalised programme is tailored to your goals and needs, and takes into account your current physical condition and medical history.

Your trainer can adapt the programme if you have an injury, back or knee pain or an aversion to water, for example.

3. Flexible hours

You can schedule sessions with your trainer once a week, several times a week or even once a month, whichever suits you best.

Virtual personal training is also popular these days.

In this case, you train at home via video conference with your coach, who guides you through the session on your phone or laptop.

4. Encourage variety of exercises

A personal trainer can introduce you to exercises that you may never have done before or would never have tried on your own, which reduces the risk of getting bored and hit a plateau.

5. Improve your mental health

A personal trainer can help promote a healthy lifestyle, not just physically. He or she can also help you improve your mental health. Regular exercise has been shown to reduce stress, improve mood and boost self-esteem.

Choose the right personal trainer for you

Hiring a personal trainer can have many benefits, but it is important to find the right person for you. Take the time to interview several trainers and find one you feel comfortable with. Also, don't forget to ask about their experience and credentials to make sure they are qualified to help you achieve your fitness goals.
