Perks of working with a PT

There are many reasons people choose to work with personal trainers, whether you want to develop a personalised programme to support weight loss, build up strength, tone up or feel you would benefit from the additional accountability and instruction.

Hiring a personal trainer is an important investment in your health and our certified fitness professionals are trained to work with clients of all backgrounds and fitness levels.

5 reasons to hire a PT

1. You don’t know where to start

It can be difficult to know where to begin when it comes to exercising and putting together a programme that helps you achieve your fitness goals. Identifying which specific exercises target the right parts of your body and what equipment to use can be overwhelming.

A trainer can help by suggesting and demonstrating activities that work for your goals and schedule. Teaching you how to get the most from your workout, while also making sure you don’t overdo it.

2. You’re not seeing results

If you have been exercising consistently but aren’t reaching your goals there are a few ways a trainer might be able to help.

They will look at what it is you’re already doing and tweak your workouts to make them more effective. Their expertise may help improve your technique or put together a more structured plan that better targets the areas you are hoping to see improvement in.

3. You need accountability and motivation

Working with a trainer can keep you motivated as you invest both time and money to help you achieve your goals. Showing up because you know you have already paid might be all you need to keep yourself turning up.

Your trainer will hold you accountable, wanting to know if you’re training as planned and help keep you motivated as your work towards your goals. Their support and supervision can encourage you through a workout and keep you on track.

4. You have an injury or condition

If you have a specific injury or condition your doctor may want you to exercise. Your trainer may be able to create a programme that works on the areas you need without risking further injury or pain. 

Before you start working with a trainer always talk to your doctor to get clearance for exercise and make sure your trainer is experienced with your condition.

5. You’re training for a sport of event

An experienced trainer can help if you are into a specific sport or training for an upcoming event. They can help you up your game by creating effective workouts and schedules that strengthen the areas you need to work on, while making sure your programme incorporates enough recovery time so you don’t overdo it and risk injury.
