Do I need a personal trainer?

Do I need a Personal Trainer?

No not necessarily. If you are like me, motivated and a bit of a go getter, I don’t engage in a trainer all the time as I can do most of the training myself. I have trained all my life in various things so I train myself because I can, but from time to time I work with someone for different reasons.

However, many are not like me. Personal Trainers can be motivational, fun to be around, have extensive and abundant knowledge about the human body and how to get you from where you are to where you want to be.

Personal training creates the changes on the body you desire as we work harder under someone’s instruction than by ourselves. They have a lot of information on how to train in a safe way and how to learn great habits from the start.

Your job is to check:

  • To see if they are insured and who with.
  • What governing body are they affiliated to.
  • Ask their other clients about them for information you want.
  • Recommendations, like so many other professions, are best referrals.
  • Are they local? It works better for both of you.
  • Are you comfortable? Listen to your inner voice.
  • Are they qualified to train you on prescribed medication from the GP? You need to check as training is different for those on medication. There are specific guidelines to follow.
  • What do I wear? T shirt, Jogging Bottoms- a good sports bra ( if you’re a woman) socks and trainers.
  • Will I be able to do it? If the trainer is good the programme will be tailored to your ability, so your first experience, as like my new clients, will be a great and successful session.

The program will then move forward from there.
