Benefits of Personal Training
Going to the gym isn’t easy by yourself. For many of us we do a long day’s work and when we hit the end of the 8 hour slog, a mental battle takes place.
In the red corner – Is the healthy, motivated, committed exercise enthusiast that put’s on their gym kit and says ‘lets do this’!
In the blue corner – A real tough contender…is your little inner devil inside you that looks at your gym bag and says ‘Nah, go home, put your feet up, slob on the couch and eat a pizza! BALLS to the gym!’. The little devil in the blue corner often delivers a knock-out punch right?
Winners have a coach
With a Personal Trainer the mental battle becomes a little more one sided in favour of the exercise enthusiast in the red corner!
If you’ve booked an appointment, and you’ve committed to turning up, your behaviour tends to follow your intentions! So just simply booking a Personal Trainer can be enough to motivate you into showing up, and once you’re in the gym, no matter how slow you go, you are still lapping those people at home on the couch!
It starts to make sense!
There’s nothing worse than going through that mental battle, putting your gym kit on, going down to the gym floor and suddenly that horrible realisation dawns on you and you say to yourself ‘I don’t know what I’m doing!’.
If you don’t plan your workout, the chances are, unless you really have mastered the art of spontaneity, you’re not going to have a good workout. This is where Personal Trainers step in. A good PT will have your session planned out for you, and it won’t be any old plan that they’ve found off the internet, it will be an exercise plan that makes sense to your life!
Support you all the way!
Ok, so haterz gonna hate! When you upload your first gym selfie picture on facebook and announce that you’re a fully-fledged member of Warrior Extreme looking to make some #gainz, not all your so called ‘friends’ are going to be there for you! Many will be jealous and even tell you to your face that you’re not going to stick to this so ‘why bother?’.
With a Personal Trainer behind you, they have you’re your best interests at heart. They’re not your bitchy best friend out to have better abs than you when you step on the beach this summer. Nor are they that over-caring family member that tells you “‘you’re’ tiring yourself out’ with all this ‘gym stuff’”. A Personal Trainer will push you to your limits. Limits you are just about comfortable with, and will only ever view your training sessions in a non-judgemental, supportive manner!
