Chances are that you’re reading this because you’re sick and tired of trying and failing. You’ve spent months, maybe even years, trying to go on a weight loss journey all by yourself. But, no matter how hard you try, the results aren’t there.
Well, the answer may just lie in this sentence; you’re doing it all by yourself.
Based on our clients' feedback you have a much higher chance of success when you work with a personal trainer in a gym setting. Whether your aim is fat loss, or you just want to gain strength and hold onto your fitness and health as you get older, you will see many benefits when you work with a qualified trainer.
One of the biggest advantages of working with a personal trainer is that they hold you accountable for your actions. There will be no more excuses, but not because you will be told off if yo don't turn up. You probably will. However, most clients report that the reason they turn up even when they don't feel like it is because they don't want to let their trainer and fellow gym friends down.
When you’re on your own, the sense of accountability lies within you. If you are reading this, you probably understand that's not enough. Just having a trainer who asks you about your "outside-of-the-gym" habits will spur you on to make better choices every day.
2. Increased Motivation
There’s no denying that working out in a gym setting gives you added motivation. For one, signing up for a membership means you’re financially tied to the gym. Weirdly, this motivates you as you don’t want to waste your money.
When you add a trainer into the mix, they will drive you during every workout and push you to reach new heights. This gives you the extra nudge you need to break through the invisible barrier and finally achieve your fitness goals.
3. Tailored Plans
Many of our clients have been trying hard to see the desired results in their fitness, health and strength before joining Team Howell. The reason they didn't succeed was often a "cookie-cutter" plan they found on the internet. These may work for some people, but certainly not everybody.
The beauty of working with someone - be it an online coach or personal trainer - is that they create your plan for you. Instead of trying something that works for someone else, you get a plan that’s specifically designed for your unique needs. This ensures you do exercises and follow a diet that works for you, yielding better and more sustainable results.
4. Added Support
The hard thing of trying to achieve fitness goals on your own is that you may have no one there supporting you or you don't receive the type of support you need to get results. With a personal trainer, there’s support when you need it most. They’re always on hand to give you positive feedback and to let you know you’re on the right track.
If you feel down, they’ll find ways to show you how to get you into a positive headspace and fight through a plateu. Your success is their success, thus working as a team on your goals s imperative. When you finally reach that hard earned goal, it's a win for both of you.
