Personal Trainers Do Make A Difference - Why Use Them?
The idea of why a trainer may be useful for your fitness program may hinder on cost, scheduling times, location, or other factors. Here are some basic points that you should know. They include: Safety, Motivation, and more.
Reason 1 to Hire a Personal Trainer:
Motivation. The majority of people who start a new exercise program quit within six months, even if they start off with tremendous willpower. You've probably done this once or twice yourself. So, if you haven't exercised consistently for six months or longer in the last several years, and you tend to skip workouts, hiring a trainer may boost your motivation and deliver strong results. Making plans to meet her (or him) makes you accountable, so you'll get to the gym more often. Plus, if you've pre-paid $90 for an exercise session at 7:00 am, you'll be less likely to hit the snooze button and roll back over. And if you're out of shape, a trainer can save you from going way too hard in your first few sessions, and then being so sore that you don't exercise (a common formula for failure).
Reason 2 to Hire a Personal Trainer
Boredom-busting. If you've stuck to a workout plan for at least six months, motivation isn't your problem. But a trainer could still help you get more benefit from your sweat time, by introducing you to new exercises and training tips that could help your weight loss and keep you from getting bored.
Reason 3 to Hire a Personal Trainer
Technique and exercise efficiency. Not sure you're doing certain moves correctly? Hire a trainer to assess your body and review your workout. Most people have muscle imbalances, and the wrong exercises can worsen them. If your joints are misaligned, your body's going to compensate, and eventually it'll break down. The right trainer — preferably an exercise physiologist or physical therapist — could identify your imbalances and design exercises for to you correct them."
REASON 4 to Hire a Personal Trainer.
Improve Your Overall Fitness. IDEA surveys show the primary reason people hire personal trainers is to get professional assistance to improve cardiovascular health, strength, flexibility, endurance, posture, balance and coordination. A personal trainer will monitor your progress and fine-tune your program as you go, helping you work your way off plateaus.
REASON 5 to HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER
Reach or Maintain a Healthy Weight. Body fat reduction, weight reduction or management, body sculpting and toning can all be achieved with the aid of a qualified personal trainer, who can help you set realistic goals and determine safe strategies, all while providing the encouragement you need.
REASON 6 TO HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER
Learn to Stick to It. Sticking with well-intentioned plans is one of the biggest challenges exercisers face. Qualified personal trainers can provide motivation for developing a lifestyle that places a high priority on health and activity. A personal trainer can help you brainstorm ways to overcome your biggest obstacles to exercise.
REASON 7 TO HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER
Focus on Your Unique Health Concerns. IDEA surveys show that 50 percent of personal trainers clients have special medical needs, such as arthritis, diabetes or obesity. A personal trainer can help you with these or other issues, including low-back pain, rehabilitation from injury and pre/postnatal training. Your personal trainer can work with your physician, physical therapist or other health care provider to plan a safe, efficient program that will speed your recovery or enable you to reach your health goals.
REASON 8 TO HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER
Find the Right Way to Work Out. You will learn the correct way to use equipment, and appropriate form and technique for cardiovascular work and free-weight training.

An individualized program can improve your overall conditioning and develop the specific skills you need.
REASON 11 TO HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER
Enhance Your Mind, Body and Spirit. A personal trainer can act as a doorway to new personal growth experiences. Many personal trainers provide mind-body activities, such as yoga or tai chi sessions. Your personal trainer may help you uncover new insights about yourself or find potential you didn’t realize you had.

Benefit From the Buddy System. What could be better than making a commitment to regularly meet with someone who will provide you with individualized attention and support?
REASON 13 TO HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER
Take Charge of Your Program, and Do It Your Way. With the right personal trainer, you can find the exercise program that works best for you. Are you more comfortable with a demanding program or a gentler approach? Would you like to train at home or at work, at a fitness club or in a personal trainer’s facility? How many times per week or month do you want to meet your personal trainer, and for how long? Carefully choosing a personal trainer enables you to select the type of guidance that will benefit you. You can get fit and healthy your way and take ultimate responsibility for your own health.
Where do I find a Personal Trainer?
Where Do I Find a Trainer?
There are a number of different ways to find a trainer. The most common is through your local gym or fitness center. These facilities typically offer personal training packages for an additional cost (on top of membership fees). The gym you belong to may also allow you to bring in an outside trainer (not affiliated with the gym), but this is the exception to the rule as most gyms have exclusivity contracts with the trainers who work at their location. If you don't belong to a fitness center, you still might be able to train at one. Not every gym will require you to be a member to use their personal training services (although the cost might be higher for non-members). Contact the facility to learn more about their policies.
Word-of-mouth is also a good way to find a trainer, since it helps to get feedback from someone who has already used the trainer's services. Just keep in mind that what works for one person doesn't always work for another. For example, your friend might respond well to their trainer's "tough love" approach, but that might not be for you.
You can also find trainers in your local paper, yellow pages or online. Some trainers will come to your home. If you have your own workout equipment, this could be a convenient and timesaving way to use their services.
INTERVIEW QUESTIONS FOR YOUR PERSONAL TRAINER
How Should I Interview a Potential Trainer?
Remember that you are hiring this person to work for you. Treat your first meeting like a job interview. Don't be afraid to ask them questions about their training philosophy, what specific things they will do to help you reach your goals, and how they think they can be of service to you. Here are some questions to get you started:
• What kind of experience and credentials do you have?
• What kind of motivational techniques do you use to help your clients reach their goals?
• Knowing my specific fitness goals, what kind of workout plan will you develop to help me?
• How often will you change my workout routine?
• Do you have current clients I could contact as references?
This is a team effort and you both must feel completely comfortable having the ability to achieve your goals. Most of all, have fun.
COST OF A PERSONAL TRAINER
How much can I afford?
You don’t need to hire someone who’s going to charge an exorbitant amount—typical rates range between $55 and $165 per hour. Most trainers generally offer package discounts. Note that you should plan to commit for the long haul, and budget accordingly so you don’t come up short before you’ve reached your goal. Expect to train for at least three to five months, between three to five days a week in order to see the full benefit.
