When you see those heroes (and villains) flaunting their muscles in all those top action flicks you marvel at their perfect bodies and naturally, there is an inspiration to follow in their league. They are people who do workouts with a passion. Many people start exercising in their own home gyms only to see the fire simmering down after a while. It is really difficult to keep the passion going after the initial interest wanes.
Going solo at home is sometimes depressing because when you are in a group you are able to enjoy the company of others and there is this friendly competition spirit. But is that the only reason why you go to a gym? No, because you need the advice of personal trainers as they can guide you every step of the way. Your PT will tell you which all exercises you are supposed to avoid, depending on your health condition and how you can prevent injuries. If you are suffering from a particular medical condition, it is better to hire a personal trainer. If you suffer from arthritis, back pain, spondilitis, obesity or diabetes then you can actually better your condition by exercising regularly. You will be given a set of exercises that will help you improve your overall health. The personalized attention that you get from a personal trainer will go a long way in helping you reach your goals.
When you are going solo, you have no way of knowing whether the exercises you perform are indeed good for your body or whether you are burning the right amount of calories. With the extensive knowledge of a personal trainer, you will definitely be led in the right direction. The trainer will know exactly how much your body will be able to tolerate and how fast or slow you can go. You will be given a particular schedule where you will be asked to work on a series of exercises depending on your BMI index, general fitness and cardio vascular health. You will be given a set of goals and asked to lose weight within a certain period of time.
True, there are personal trainers who come to your house and give you personal lessons. Many people will not be able to afford it, but it has its advantages too. For one, you are getting undivided attention from your trainer. Second, you are going to get fit much faster than the others in your legion. Third, you are motivated greatly because your trainer will give you ‘homework workouts’ that you cannot afford to miss. Many people over-exercise and then breakdown, but a trainer will know how much you can take because they are trained for it. It is true that you will feel your personal trainer is making you work too hard and you won’t be able to handle it, but no, it won’t happen, not if you workout under a certified trainer. Your progress will be monitored and your trainer will fine-tune your exercise regime as you go along. People who hire PTs are likely to achieve their goals much faster than those without.
