On the surface, it may seem that joining a gym is a cheaper, better investment than hiring a personal trainer.
Don’t join a gym. Hire a personal trainer. And this is why.
The Investment of a Personal Trainer
When you join a gym, you’ll probably play an enrollment fee and then a flat monthly rate for a scale of amenities. Maybe there are group fitness classes, or a pool, or a sauna. You’ll have access to a room full of equipment. But do you know how to use that equipment properly? Do you know how to build your own workout plan that accommodates for your current fitness level and will you move you safely and effectively toward your fitness goals?
When you hire a personal trainer, you probably won’t get use of a pool or sauna. But you can be sure that every minute of your time alloted for your workouts – and every dollar you’re spending on them – will be used efficiently and effectively. No wasted time wandering around the gym, trying this machine or that. No frustration when your weights don’t increase or the numbers on the scale refuse to budge.
The Benefits of a Personal Trainer
- Your personal trainer knows how to use all the equipment in the gym. But more than that, he knows which exercises are appropriate for you, given your condition and your goals. He knows how to demonstrate the movements and how to watch you perform them to ensure your safety and productivity.
- Your personal trainer keeps you motivated and accountable. You’re paying for these sessions, and in the beginning, that alone makes you more likely to show up.
- Your personal trainer is results-oriented over the long term. No quick fixes that don’t last.
