If You Keep On Doing What You’ve Always Done, You’ll Keep On Getting What You’ve Always Got
Studies have clearly shown that people who work with a Personal Trainer will achieve up to 80% better results three times faster than on their own. Now why is that? Do they have some secret exercises that they only reveal to their clients? Are they just keep the ‘good stuff’ for themselves?
Here’s the truth. Weight loss is easy. I you don’t believe me just stop eating and see what happens. Unfortunately when people lose weight by just dieting they usually end up losing muscle, water and other body fluids instead of actual body fat.
Losing fat on the other hand requires the knowledge and perfect balance between rest and training days, the right training program, the right intensity and get your nutrition and eating schedule just right.
A steady fat loss rate is somewhere between 0.5 to 1 pound or body fat percent per week. So you do the math. How long should it have taken your to achieve your goal? Are you there yet? Chances are you have been exercising consistently for several weeks or months or maybe even years and aren’t seeing the changes. So were is the problem? This is were the Personal Trainer steps in.
So why Does It Work?
If you wanted to learn for instance computer skills or a new language. Which do you think would work best. Hiring a tutor or trying to learn on your own? I’m not saying that you wouldn’t be able to learn on your own but which one would have the least trial and error? That’s right. And ‘trial and error’ approach is one of the biggest time killers. Time is precious to us all. And not only would you have waisted that precious little time you have set aside for your health and fitness goals but you would have waisted the hard work that went along with it!
A Personal Trainer will turn your ‘Shoulds’ into ‘Must’
It all comes down to, what are the musts vs. shoulds? I should go the bed earlier. I Should eat healthier.I should work out more. I should play more with the kids.
Should is like wish full thinking without a backup. Should is not going to get you out of bed in the morning. Should is merely a preference, it takes away the intensity of your negative feelings and you are left with mild disappointment, simple frustration, or concern — rather than sadness, anger, or fear. ‘Must’ on the other had has power. It’s straightforward there is no cop out. I you made an appointment with your trainer should isn’t an option anymore.
A wise person once said,”Anything worth getting is worth working for.” If you don’t feel it then it’s not working. What is the sense of working out if you are not going to get results. You will never get the results that you want pretending to workout. A lot of gym regulars have never experienced to intensity and focus needed to make your exercises work for you. There is a huge difference between proper form versus just moving weight.
Quality versus Quantity
The good news is that when you train with more intensity and good form the quantity disappears. How many people do you see training while talking or even reading a newspaper and they all seem to have the same body-type they had last year? A good quality 30 minute session will always beat a 2 hours mega session in the gym. A Personal Trainer won’t let you get away with sloppy technique and will make sure you get the most of every session safely and productively.
Personal trainers are not just for the rich and famous anymore. Today, people of all fitness, age and economic levels are consulting personal trainers to help them make the changes and to help create new more empowering habits and patterns. We all have dreams we all have goals. And we all have busy lives and the real luxury item here is time.
To get a good jumpstart and the most of your personal training start off with two to three 30 minute or 60 minute sessions a week then gradually reduce your sessions after 6-8 weeks. As you become more focused with your training you will be able to continue alone which is the overall objective. No good personal trainer wants to see their client handicaped so that the client feels they can’t train on their own. A good trainer takes pride in seeing the change in both discipline and confidence of their client and leaves the door open for whenever the client feels the need to retrace their steps or have reached their next ‘plateau’
There are many ways to get fit. You might want to get fit boxing or maybe you are training for an special event. Whatever your intention and attention is using a good Personal Trainer is really the only real ‘shortcut’ to getting there because it will take out all the trial and errors and guess work out of your training routine.
