I will admit that personal trainers don’t necessarily have some magical skill to get you results.
There is no “secret” to getting in shape.
But personal trainers can provide you with all the tools you need to get to where you want to be.
Without fad diets and “magical” supplements.
Personal trainers provide motivation.
We all need a little motivation, and personal trainers can provide all the motivation you need and then some.
Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t do it anymore?
Have you ever felt like you just didn’t want to get up before work and get that workout in?
Have you ever felt like the results weren’t showing and wanted to give up?
Have you ever felt like you couldn’t push yourself anymore?
Well that where personal trainers come into play.
Not only are they going to keep you motivated day in and day out, they’re going to make sure you’re working hard each time you show up at the gym. And that honestly is what it takes the get the results you desire.
If you can stay motivated, or have someone there to do it for you, then you’re one step closer to most people to sticking to your workouts.
Personal trainers provide accountability.
Everyone needs someone to hold them accountable. Even the best athletes in the world have someone to show up to. It may be a friend, family member, coach, trainer, or teammate, but they always have someone there to show up for.
This is absolutely necessary for you to keep up with your workout routine.
If you wake up and feel like you’re too tired to workout, you know that your trainer is going to be there waiting on you.
If you just don’t want to go to the gym for any reason, your trainer will be waiting.
Personal trainers go above and beyond to make sure that they’re at the gym on time, rain or shine. No matter what the circumstance they’re going to be there for you, ready to workout
Personal trainers provide consistency.
The hardest part of working out is consistency. It’s very easy to get into a rhythm then fall right back off, especially without someone there to keep you going.
Personal trainers are the fix to that problem. A trainer is going to show up everyday.
They’re not the typical workout partner that starts working out with you to only bail on you after a few weeks.
Personal trainers know that fad diets and supplements don’t work long term.
The best thing about personal trainers is that they shouldn’t be pushing crazy supplements on you or fad diets.
Personal trainers that know what they’re doing aren’t going to do that. They shouldn’t need to.
Trainers will get you results for all of the above reasons. They know that results don’t come overnight, and they shouldn’t promise that to you.
Find yourself a trainer that doesn’t promise crazy results and I guarantee you’ll have someone who’s going to be there with you through it all.
The reality is that a special diet isn’t going to fix the problem, because diets are temporary. It takes time to make changes, and fitness is a lifestyle. It’s not a one stop shop.
You’ll learn that small changes to your eating habits and consistency is all that it takes to get results.
