So, it’s your first time in the gym and  you don’t know where to begin? Or maybe you’re a gym veteran who needs to be pushed to the next level? Whatever the reason may be, pairing with a personal trainer will change the way you exercise, allowing you to reach your health and fitness goals, and here’s why:

  1. Personalized training plan with results

Do you ever leave the gym not completely satisfied with your workout? Many people quit within the first two-weeks if they don’t see the results right away. That’s where a personal trainer comes in handy. They create specific training sessions according to your needs and walk you through exercises customized for you.


And thanks to the effectiveness and efficiency of these personalized workouts, you’ll begin to see changes – physical and mental – in a short period of time.  A personal trainer is there to guide you to surpass your limitations, so you get an awesome workout each time.

  1. Creativity and motivation

Do you know your limits? Have you explored the thousands of exercises outside of your regular routine? Shake it up! A personal trainer uses their extensive repertoire to create a creative routine that pushes your boundaries. Many of us get bored using the same exercises over and over again, but a personal trainer keeps your routine fresh.
With proper guidance and motivation, you can push yourself harder than you ever would, running that extra mile you never knew you could.

  1. Physical training and nutrition counselling

There is a fundamental link existing between our physical training and food: How we eat, when we eat, and what we eat defines our bodies.


If you’ve experienced frustration in the past over not being able to lose weight despite exercising, it may be time to sit down and look over your diet. A personal trainer who’s experienced with nutrition can work with you to craft an ideal food plan and teach you food methods for you and your body.


4. Injury prevention

As we get older, injury becomes more prominent and potential. Many people decide to go to a personal trainer due to previous injury, sometimes caused by improperly working out at the gym.


Many personal trainers come from physical therapist backgrounds with extensive knowledge in kinesiology. To prevent further injury, get a personal trainer to assess you and create a safe workout with low-injury risk. With your trainer you will learn to exercise safely without injuring yourself.

  1. Perseverance, optimism & guidance

Do you ever get that voice in your head telling you that you can’t do it?   When pairing with a personal trainer you are making an investment in becoming the best version of yourself. Your trainer will guide you to look and feel more confident, improving your overall mental health. They will teach you mental and visualization skills that will serve you in every domain in life including staying optimistic, positive and sharing gratitude. Your personal trainer could become a good friend, a best friend and even a confidant, someone you turn to in troubling times while still getting a kick-butt workout.

Beginning your health journey can be overwhelming, but with a personalized training plan, creativity, motivation, physical training, nutrition counselling, injury prevention and perseverance, you’ll be reaching your goals sooner than you expected.
