If you feel like you hit a plateau in fitness and can’t seem to achieve any better results, you’ll benefit from using a Red Deer personal trainer. Personal trainers first assess your fitness level, find out your goals and see if you have any special needs before they design a program for you. Special needs may include physical needs, such as difficulty with a specific joint, like your knee, or may be scheduling needs. For instance, you might be on the road frequently and require exercises you can do anywhere without extra equipment.
The personal trainer designs a program that works you to your maximum potential but is still within your capabilities.
Many people who first start working with a personal trainer think they are already working as hard as they can. However, they soon find out differently. The trainer also varies the routine and provides exercises that work muscle groups clients often miss when they workout. Most admit, they’ve never worked this hard before, but they see the results faster when they work with a personal trainer.
You’ll lose weight faster too if that’s your goal.
Personal trainers don’t give you a diet, but instead show you how to eat healthier to lose weight. Diets don’t work because they always end and you go back to old eating habits that put weight on in the first place. Often you’ll be eating more frequently, but in smaller portions, but you’ll always feel full and satisfied. The changes in your eating patterns may be subtle, such as making substitutions of one food for another or learning to make your favorite food lower in calories and healthier. However, all the small changes add up to big weight loss. Best of all, once you adopt this way of eating, you’ll never have to diet again.
You’ll learn new routines and ways of exercising that can break the monotony.
Even if you don’t plateau or want to progress faster, sometimes doing the same old exercises can be boring. Personal trainers know a wide selection of routines and different exercise techniques that can breathe new life and interest into your workout. Sometimes a trainer shows you how to change an exercise you’re already doing and make it more challenging. Other times, a personal trainer may show you new ways of exercising, such as using kettlebells.
Personal trainers can be quite motivating, pushing you past your comfort zone and into a workout that gets great results.
Even though you thought you were doing an exercise correctly, one of your problems may be from improper form. It’s always a good idea to have a trainer check your form so you can receive maximum benefit from an exercise.
Personal trainers aren’t just for seasoned gym veterans, people new to exercise benefit just as much, if not more, from the help of a personal trainer.
A personal trainer holds you accountable, but can also provide a great deal of encouragement when it’s necessary.
