Are you feeling uninspired, demotivated, or a little uncertain of what on earth you should actually be doing in the gym? Perhaps it’s time to get a little outside help.
Hiring a Personal Trainer could be just the kick up the backside you need. Here are a few reasons why…
It’s all too easy to talk ourselves out of exercise.
‘I’m too tired, I should probably get some sleep.’
‘Maybe my muscles need (another) rest day?’
‘It’s ok, I can just go to the gym tomorrow.’
Before you know it, you’re three weeks out of training, twenty seven donuts down and that bottle of rosé in the fridge starts to look a little too appealing.
However, if you work with a Personal Trainer, your sessions will be scheduled in advance. That, combined with the fact that you’ve probably paid in advance, should be motivation enough to get ya lil toosh to the gym. In short, a coach will help you to maintain consistency. No more excuses.
Motivation from a coach extends further than just getting you to the gym. Each session will be structured to your personal requirements (and if it isn’t, there’s a 99% chance that you’ve hired a terrible PT).
It’s a coach’s job to ensure that any training regime is diverse, interesting and enjoyable. An individualised programme is likely to differ somewhat from the training you plan (or perhaps don’t plan) when you train alone. This variety can be crucial in maintaining focus and drive, not to mention helping to avoid plateaus in strength/physical appearance.
So you reaaaaally wanna do a deadlift, but you can’t hinge without hurting your back?
Perhaps you don’t even know what a hinge is…. In which case, it’s definitely time to get yourself some professional help.
In theory, no movement pattern should cause pain to an injury free, able-bodied person. If it does, chances are, you need to fix the way you move. A good coach will be able to assist with cues and guidelines you didn’t even know existed.
