While personal trainers used to be reserved for Hollywood stars getting in seriously good shape for a movie role, the industry has come a long way. Today, there are personal trainers catering to people at all stages of fitness. Here in Reno, Framework Personal Training has been offering effective, personalized training at our private studio for over 20 years. If making lasting changes to your health and fitness is on your to-do list, working with a personal trainer could be the best way to make it happen. Here are three signs that you’d benefit from a personal trainer.
The Idea of Fitness is Overwhelming
Whether you’re new to the gym, returning to the gym, or getting started with equipment you can use at home, fitness can often feel overwhelming. It’s understandable – there’s an enormous amount of exercises, training philosophies, and equipment to navigate, which can make it hard to know where to even begin. That’s especially true in this age of social media, with “fitfluencers” and YouTube stars showing a heavily curated and filtered view of fitness (and a worrying lack of credentials).
The true is that the fad diets come and go, but the basics work very well. A certified personal trainer, like those here at Framework Personal Training, will teach you proper technique. He or she will also create a personalized fitness plan that will move you safely and effectively toward your fitness goals. Having a trainer also offers you the benefit of accountability, which helps you develop consistency as you turn regular workouts into a habit.
You’re Aren’t Seeing Results
It’s understandable to feel frustrated if you’ve been putting in the work but not seeing or feeling any changes. There are a few reasons this could be the case – a fitness plateau from doing the same thing for a few months and no progression in your routine to challenge your body and mind could both be culprits. If you’re getting bored with your workouts, a certified trainer is a great idea. Many people rise to the challenges put before them, and your trainer will know how to create a plan that keeps you moving forward.
You Think Your Technique is Right, But…
There is no shortage of online tutorials breaking down proper squat technique, or how to build up to a pull up. But unless you know for sure that you’re lifting properly, you’re putting yourself at risk of injury. Even a single session or two with a certified trainer will give you the basics of proper technique. And if you decide to continue, a trainer can always offer alternative exercises if you struggle with old injuries, chronic illness, or any limitations.
Fitness may be a DIY pursuit for many people, but if any of the above sounds familiar, it could be a smart move to call a trainer. Framework Personal Training in Reno is happy to answer all of your questions about our private studio, our trainers, and our methodologies – contact us today.
