At one point or another, many people wonder whether investing in a personal trainer is worth the money. While most personal trainers, including those here at Framework Personal Training in Reno, can share from experience the difference they’ve made in the lives of their clients, the research may be more compelling. Here’s why research shows that personal trainers are worth the investment.
Addressing the “Why”
Research shows that most people are motivated to hire a personal trainer for one of two reasons:
- They’re frustrated that they can’t achieve personal fitness goals on their own.
- They’re motived to start and, most importantly, maintain a fitness routine.
Research also shows that working with a personal trainer can actually change a client’s attitude about physical activity for the better. That change in mindset can be incredibly valuable for people.
Other evidence points to the idea that personal trainers generally help their clients achieve better results than if those clients were training on their own. One study found that power output, one-rep maximums, training loads, and fat-free mass increased dramatically in men who were training with a personal trainer compared to a group of men who were following the same weight training routine solo.
It makes sense. Working with a trainer means you’re less likely to skip sessions, more likely to focus on what you’re doing, and you can be sure you’re performing the exercises correctly to maximum effect.
