Why You Should Hire A Personal Trainer
Getting a Personal Trainer might have crossed your mind one or twice. Maybe you consider it more often than that. Perhaps each time another month rolls around and you’re still feeling unhealthy or you’ve hit a plateau with your weight loss, fitness or strength gains, you tell yourself ‘it’s time to get a coach’. Whatever the circumstances you find yourself in, I’m sure you’ve wondered if having a Personal Trainer is a worthwhile investment. If you’ve never thought about this, then I’d like to hazard a guess that you’re thinking about it now, because why else would you be reading this article?
You may think I’m about to try and sell you my services as a Personal Trainer, however that’s not why I’m writing this post. There are many fantastic coaches out there who you have the knowledge and expertise to get you results, you just have to find the one who’s right for you. I’m writing this because over the years, it has come to my attention that so many people don’t realise how investing in a Personal Trainer can make all the difference. By that I mean that you can either continue going round in circles, yo-yo dieting, starting new exercise regimes which you give up after 2 weeks, or you can finally ask someone for help and start progressing from day 1.
It’s up to you which you choose…but first of all simply ask yourself, do you want to waste another 5,10,20 years never getting where you want to be?
A Personal Trainer has knowledge and experience
Would you trust your next door neighbour to advise you on toothache? No, you’d go to a dentist, because they are trained professionals who have the experience and knowledge to diagnose your problem and find a solution to fix it. Now, whilst Personal Trainers are not medical professionals (and you shouldn’t expect them to be), they are qualified and experienced within the areas of health and fitness. They are specifically trained in order to design exercise programmes which help you reach your goals, whatever they may be.
From fat loss and strength building, to injury prevention and sports-specific training, it is within their realm of knowledge to design a custom programme which suits your needs and gets you to where you want to be. No more googling gym sessions or following random workouts from Instagram. If you really want to see progress with from your exercise regime, you should have a bespoke programme which has been written specifically for you and which can be adjusted as you progress.
Say goodbye to the days of wondering what you need to do in the gym, or whether what you are doing is working. A Personal Trainer is there to do that for you. From goal setting to programme design, they are educated on how to set measurable, attainable goals alongside a programme which will help you to achieve them. They also have the expertise to train you in the gym, ensuring that you perform movements safely, correctly and with good form.
The stress of worrying about what exercise you need to be doing or how you should be eating is taken away when you have a coach. All you have to do is simply follow their advice, making sure you ask questions when you need to, and you’ll be on the road to success without having to give a second thought. You just need to show up and do the work.
Who’s familiar with the excuse “I don’t have time to exercise”? I hear it all the time. It’s one of the most common reasons that people don’t workout – they’re too busy, they have too many plans, they don’t have enough hours in the day. When you hire a trainer, you are making a commitment. You are investing your time and money into being accountable to that person. Accountability can force you to ‘create’ time to work on your diet and exercise. You’ll be forced to manage your time better, as you have to fit these commitments into your schedule.
Even the most committed people have days where they want to skip the gym, however if you have your Personal Training session booked in and paid for, you’re much less likely to cancel. Signing up with the right Personal Trainer will make a huge difference in how motivated you are to show up, as well as your mindset when it comes to preserving with your health and fitness journey.
Good Personal Trainers get you results. There’s no doubt about it. If you hire a coach that you trust and who you will listen to, then you will reach your goals.

Not only that, we are there for you throughout the process, ensuring we are on hand to help you through any slip ups and to motivate you whenever you feel like giving up.
