The benefits of hiring a personal trainer make it the best value in achieving personal fitness for all the following reasons.
Customization Personal trainers consider chronic health conditions and injuries to design safe and efficient exercise that targets specific goals.
Safety Personal trainers monitor form, equipment use and vital signs and provide educated feedback about strengths and limitations to prevent injury as well as to avoid stopping prematurely. Certified personal trainers also are qualified to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation ( CPR ) and / or first aid.
Efficiency Personal trainers have the education and experience to know what works best. They focus exercise plans to achieve maximum results in minimal time.
Convenience Personal trainers bring their expertise to their clients. For those who lack time, access to or interest in traveling to a gym, a personal trainer is the best alternative. Personal trainers can customize effective fitness routines for use in virtually any environment: indoors, outdoors, residence, or office.
Technique Personal trainers incorporate skills training into individual programs to address not only strength and endurance, but agility and mental focus, as well.
Re-ignition Personal trainers can jump start stalled progress by varying exercise routines, which motivates the body to burn fuel more efficiently and move past discouraging plateaus—periods of little noticeable advance toward goals.
Motivation Personal trainers provide program structure and an element of accountability, which, in turn, help to maintain personal motivation to work toward goals.
Rehabilitation Personal trainers design fitness programs to address muscle loss, joint stiffness, general weakness or imbalance due to surgery or injury to aid recovery, strength, and improved overall mobility.
