Why is there a need for a personal trainer? You walk regularly, right? Oh, and you always park at the farthest point from the supermarket door, and pack your own groceries into the trunk. That should count for something, shouldn't it? What exactly does a personal trainer do that you can't do for yourself?
The "personal" in personal trainer
A personal trainer will look at you as an individual. After an in-depth interview with you, he is prepared to coach you in nutritional needs (including how to read and interpret those labels on your food). He will teach you how to track your food intake, discuss calories, and will explain the importance of your Body Mass Index (BMI).
Do you have special health conditions, injuries, or some exacting fitness goals? Your personal trainer will work with your healthcare provider to design a unique program just for you. Your program will take into account how to achieve your personal health goals in a safe, proficient manner.
A personal safety instructor
Your trainer will be there to help keep you safe as you embark on your personally designed fitness routines. He is there to make sure you do not injure yourself by pushing yourself too hard, and to help you push yourself when necessary.
One of the biggest advantages of having a personal trainer is the motivation he provides. He is there to encourage you when you feel like giving up. One thing many of us need is accountability, and a trainer provides that. His goal is to see you develop an overall healthy lifestyle, not just a now-and-then workout session.
