Most of us know how to get on a cardio machine at the gym and complete a 30-minute workout. However, if you’re really looking to get something from your workout, a personal trainer can help you kick things up a notch.
Almost all personal trainers will coach you in some sort of strength training during your sessions. Strength training has numerous benefits. For example, it strengthens your bones, increases your metabolism, strengthens your connective tissue and tendons, and helps you control your weight. Keep in mind that strength training isn’t just for bodybuilders and your personal trainer can coach you through the moves. You’ll become leaner and fitter by incorporating strength training into your workout and there are endless movements and exercises to keep it fresh and fun.
A personal trainer can also personalize your workouts to fit your specific goals. Our bodies aren’t all the same, and a trainer will know how to adapt workouts to best fit your needs. For example, if weight loss is your goal, your workout should be very different from someone training for an ironman. You will also be able to communicate directly with your personal trainer throughout your sessions if there is anything that doesn’t feel right with your workouts. As a result, you’ll experience fewer injuries.
Additionally, your personal trainer can incorporate variety into your exercise routine. Having variety in your workouts improves their effectiveness. Your personal trainer will have a wealth of ideas to keep your workouts interesting and effective.
If you’re feeling stuck in a rut, hiring a personal trainer is a great way to start moving forward again. Contact us at Empower Fitness today for more information.
