8 Reasons to Hire a Personal Trainer

1. Want better results?
If you've been exercising consistently for several weeks, months or even years and aren't seeing the results you want, hiring a trainer might be just what you need.  Perhaps you’re bored with your exercise routine and it lacks variety.

A trainer can look at your current program and eating habits and help you see where you could make changes to create more effective workouts. They will bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to challenge you in body and mind!

2. Confused?
Knowing how to set up a balanced schedule that includes all the activities you need to do can be confusing. The great thing about a trainer is that he can help you maximize your time while helping you stay within your own limits so you don't overdo it. He can also help you set goals and map out a specific schedule so you know when, how and where you'll fit in your workouts.

3. Want a Challenge?
Do you find yourself slacking off during your workouts sometimes, especially when things get tough. A trainer can motivate you to push past those self-imposed limits, encouraging you to lift heavier, go longer and challenge yourself more than you would on your own.

4. Want to Learn More?
Even if your goal is to create your own workouts and exercise by yourself, hiring a trainer for a few sessions can be a great benefit for learning the right way to exercise. Just a few sessions can teach you a lot about your body and how it works.

5. Need Motivation
Trainers come with built-in motivation. Not only are you investing money into your exercise program...you're investing time as well. Not only that, a trainer provides some accountability so, even when you don't have a session, you know your trainer will be asking if you did your planned workouts.

6. Have an illness, injury or medical condition?
If you have any specific issues like arthritis, heart disease, old injuries, etc., working with an experienced trainer can help you find a program to help heal injuries and avoid any further problems. It's also a great idea to work with a trainer if you're pregnant and want a safe, effective workout to keep you healthy and fit during your pregnancy.

7. Training for a Sport or Event
If you're training for a marathon, a golf tournament or some other type of sport or event, an experienced trainer can help you figure out what you need to do to stay strong without taking away from your other training. They can also help create a training program and map out a plan for the coming event.

8. Want Supervision and Support?
Some people know how to exercise and they even know how to do the exercises correctly, but they like having a trainer around for support and supervision. If you're lifting very heavy weights or need someone to help with partner-type exercises, working with a trainer might be a good choice for you
