Is it a rip off? Can I do it myself?

So we’ve decided to clear up the issue once and for all.

Yes you probably can, but will you? Also let's not forget Personal Trainers have spent thousands (yes thousands) of pounds to ensure they are correctly trained in teaching others how to correctly and safely exercise.

If you're not correctly educated when exercising, your less likely to reach and achieve your goals, and are likely to create muscle imbalances or injuries. Many people every year are seriously injured by performing exercises they have not received training for, and this can impact their health and fitness and can result in long periods of time in recovery unable to train and then later having to re-train and re-learn.

Having someone trained in how to execute certain tasks will greatly reduce the level of risk and increase the effectiveness of your fitness routine.

Everybody is different, and that means everyone’s abilities and requirements are different when it comes to exercise. This could be anything from having an old injury that requires special exercises to having a phobia that may impact on where or how you workout.

Having a Personal Trainer beside you to demonstrate the correct posture and technique is invaluable. A Personal Trainer will ensure clients are performing exercises correctly and efficiently, in order to maximise results.

We can all be inpatient. This may mean we want to achieve our goals straight away, and if we don’t hit them, we become disheartened and say stuff it and give up. With a good personal trainer, you will set realistic goals that you will be able to achieve - if you put in the effort. They'll also keep you on track and accountable to hit those goals.

There are so many reasons why a Personal Trainer is essential to achieving your fitness goals, whether they be weight loss-based, sports-driven or for athletic purposes.

As well as helping clients set realistic goals, Personal Trainers are the perfect to help you achieve a specific goal. This is ideal for those who are training for a specific event, or need to achieve a certain level of fitness before they are able to do something they really want to do.

Plus, you're more likely to do it, knowing there's someone there waiting for you! How often do you say, tomorrow i'm going to get up and do a work out...only to in the morning, hit the snooze button?!

Going to the gym may not be enough. If you're going to the gym. Stop by the fountain. Maybe grab a quick coffee. walk around not sure what to do. Find a machine, do a bit, then you see your mate, have a quick catch up on last nights telly. The next machine you want is busy so you wait around for a bit. Manage to finally get on said machine. Oh look at the time, time to be getting back... If this is familiar, contact me today!

As much as you might not feel like it at the time, it WILL help boost your mood! It's been known for some time now that physical exercise can help with mental health issues, and it is often recommended as part of treatment by many medical health professionals. Having a Personal Trainer to help with your exercise plan when you suffer from mental health problems can be extremely motivating, plus will get those endorphins releasing!

It can also help with your overall well being. Most of the time when exercising with your Personal Trainer you will be telling them about your week, what's going well and what's not. Sometimes just by sharing how you're feeling it can help you churn through and reflect. Your trainer cares about how stressed you are and how happy you are as it will have a direct link to your training and results.

It can take weeks to form good habits, and even longer to break bad ones - trying to do it on your own is hard work. Having a Personal Trainer is like having a good angel on your shoulder encouraging you in the right direction. They can help to argue with the bad in your head, and keep you on track to achieve your fitness goals.

A Personal Trainer will be able to tailor your training plan to suit you and what you enjoy, as well as encourage you to do the exercises that are best to achieve your goals.on

With a PT you are not limited to only working out in a crowded gym, with a Personal Trainer you can choose the location in which you exercise. Whether it’s in the comfort of your own home or in your neighbourhood park, with a Personal Trainer you have the flexibility to workout wherever suits you best.

Without your good angel on your shoulder, your fitness goals are that much harder to achieve. So what are you waiting for? Contact today to help achieve your fitness goals.
