What is Personal Training?

March 17, 2022

Personal training can be revolutionary for many as it involves working with an expert to achieve both mental and physical goals, whilst maximising wellbeing. The role of a personal trainer is to construct workouts and exercises tailored to the individual as well as provide expert advice in all areas of fitness such as diet, rest, and activity. 


For those who aren’t fitness freaks, don’t worry. Personal training can be used to achieve goals at any level and can be brilliant for people recovering from an illness, or for people who need to work with a professional for help to recover from injury. 


How can personal training help your mind?


There are many ways in which a professional can help you physically, and many people don’t see past this. The game-changer is how your mental wellbeing can improve with a personal trainer by increasing your motivation levels, organisation, and can-do attitude. 


We’ve all had those days when we don’t want to go to the gym and end up putting it off. That’s what personal trainers are there for; to push you to get out of the house as they know the benefits that a workout offers. Over time, after experiencing such benefits, you’re more likely to be motivated to the point where you can motivate yourself to keep your workout routine consistent. 


Being able to plan your day whilst factoring in gym time will help bring about more organisation in your everyday life and ultimately enhance your productivity on a day to day basis. Of course, with your wellbeing already boosted from the previous benefits, you’re likely to wave goodbye to a lot of existing anxiety and stress whilst adopting a can-do attitude which is going to help you do well in every aspect of life!


How can personal training help your body?


Personal trainers are not only there to guide you through workouts to improve your physical wellbeing, but they’re also there to educate you about why specific exercises are good for you, and to help you become more confident and independent when it comes to the gym.


Many people associate a personal trainer with losing weight and gaining lots of muscle, but there’s a lot more to it than that. Trainers will guide you through the correct positioning for every exercise to minimise the chance of injury and maximise your progress towards achieving your goals.


Personal trainers will get to know you personally and help you by devising a workout, diet, and rest plan unique to your lifestyle, ultimately helping you gain the desired results whilst maintaining balance! 


The bottom line is that PTs are there to help you progress, whether that be losing weight, gaining muscle, or simply working out to improve fitness and mental health. Being experts in their field, there is always the benefit of gaining professional advice even if you’re just looking to kickstart your fitness journey.
