Hiring A Personal Trainer – Is It Worth The Investment?
Have you ever considered hiring a personal trainer to help you achieve your health or fitness goals?
Many people are put off by the cost of hiring a personal trainer and also the thought of them pushing you to near collapse.
Finding the right personal trainer that truly cares about you both in and out of the gym can be tough.
90% of trainers consider it their job to work with you only while you’re at the gym. They often forget that you need to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle outside of the gym if you are to achieve your best possible results.
That’s why I’ve been working so hard for the past 2 years to design and develop a system that can benefit you even when you don’t have a trainer working alongside you at the gym. Heck, with this system you don’t even need to have access to a gym membership!
Indeed, from my own personal experience, having a trainer barking orders at you can sometimes be more intimidating than helpful.
Achieving Your Goals
The role of personal trainers is very rapidly changing. Traditionally, a personal trainer will help you evaluate and determine your fitness goals, develop a customised training programme and walk you through safe and effective exercise execution while monitoring your progress.
This is where most trainers stop and forget that there is a limit to how much they can achieve in those few hours a week physically training with you. Very few trainers check in with their clients at least once a day to offer advice and encouragement. This helps to ensure that their clients are overcoming any challenges in adhering to their training programme.
For anyone who has tried to start a new fitness or exercise routine in the past will know, getting started is the easy bit… staying focused and motivated after the first few weeks is the real challenge. It’s often down to a lack of motivation derived from losing sight of their goals that cause many clients to stop attending personal training sessions after just a few weeks.
If you already have a personal trainer, ask yourself how committed they are to helping you achieve your goals… are they continually motivating you with new, varied workouts each week or are they simply there regurgitating the same routines? Do you feel like their primary purpose is to make sure you show up for your sessions while simply standing over you mindlessly counting your reps?
If you’re looking for an alternative, the new FIMLCoach app provides you with direct access to your own personal trainer 24/7 from anywhere in the world. Train when and where you want to train while remaining highly motivated with a supportive fitness community keeping you on track.
The app features a comprehensive library of exercises to incorporate into your workouts. Your trainer will design and send you your exercise programme direct to your activity schedule on your phone each week so all you need to do is hit play and follow the assigned workout.
The app also helps you stay on top of your nutrition too by calculating your recommended calories based on your goals. You can also log your daily food consumption and share with your trainer to monitor your habits and seek advice on healthier nutrition options.
If that isn’t enough, you and your trainer can track your overall activity levels if you use a Fitbit, Garmin or other fitness tracking device, and you will be rewarded by earning fitness points from completing challenges with a chance to win prizes each month.
