Private personal training, is it right for me?

Hustle Fitness

Staying fit is something that should be a priority in everyone’s life.  Many believe that private personal training provides the ultimate approach to  personal fitness.  Although looking good is always a positive motivator and easy to measure, staying healthy is even more important. By following a fitness program, a person can decrease their chances of disease, while looking and feeling great.

Getting in shape is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions by many. Unfortunately, most people fail to see their resolution to fruition, and find themselves setting the same goal a year later. The reason for this is often a lack of motivation.  As most people have learned in life, saying something is much easier than actually doing it.  Many people interested in fitness are also familiar with the belief that one of the biggest reasons people fail to get in the shape they want is because they aren’t working out intensely enough, or can’t devote enough time to learning to get in shape themselves.

This is why many people hire a private personal trainer to help them reach their fitness goals. A personal trainer will make sure that their client finishes what they started. Some people think that hiring a personal trainer is too expensive for them.  Other options such as semi-private training can be more affordable and less expensive for those individuals on a tight budget.  A word of note: There are many people out there who can reach their fitness goals without a personal trainer. If someone is self motivated, determined, self disciplined and not scared of hard work, achieving amazing results is possible.  For busy professionals, this may be a different story.  Sometimes, having someone organizing your time in the gym, motivating you, and providing you dietary and nutrition counseling can go quite a long way.

Most people will see positive benefits having a private personal trainer to work with. Members of a personal training studio receive a great amount of attention and usually cannot workout unless they are with their trainer. By having a private personal trainer, an individual will always have an expert in the health and fitness field by their side, working with them every step of the way.

Physical safety is always a top priority when it comes to working out. Many times, an individual will start a fitness program on their own and perform individual exercises with improper form.  This is not only a very inefficient use of time, but it can lead to injuries as well. When a person is receiving private personal training, they will have someone monitoring their technique, ensuring the weight they use is appropriate, ultimately helping the client to avoid injury.

Those that need a sport specified training program often times find great benefit from private personal training. These people are generally in shape already but just need an expert in the field to help them work on fitness programs that are tailored to their sport. With these workouts, an athlete will increase the likelihood of performing at their peak level on game day.

It will be up to an individual to decide if a private personal trainer is for them. If a person needs advice, program design, motivation and honest feedback, they should hire a personal trainer. If all of this is not needed, and a person is self motivated enough to reach their goals on their own, and has the time and attention to wholly devote themselves to it, there may not be a need for a personal trainer.

Before deciding, a person will have to be honest with themselves. They may want to believe that they are the type of self motivated person that can do it alone, but in reality, this is not often the case. If you don’t have very much going on in your life right now and you can afford it, why not give a private personal training a try?  After all, if you want to fix your golf swing, or learn to play the piano, you would need a private tutor.  Why not consider a private tutor to help with your overall fitness?
