It’s that time of year again where everyone is going to get in shape, lose weight, look great, and feel good right? Was this the same thing you said last year? If so, hiring a personal trainer may help you get finally get over the hump and achieve your goals! If you are wondering if personal training is right for you, start by asking yourself a few questions.
- When was the last time that I exercised? This can range from weeks to years, the longer it has been, the more benefit that you will get from working with a professional. If you work at a desk, you can expect to have a lack of flexibility, strength, and endurance that may lead to injuries if your not training properly. It’s important to restore proper range of motion and movement mechanics first, then focus on other goals.
- Do I have any pre-existing conditions? If you have had injuries, back pain, pulled muscles, poor posture, health conditions, or on medication, it is a good idea to be supervised when your exercising. Make sure to tell your trainer before starting to workout so that you can go forward on the same page. It’s also a good idea to get a release from your Physician prior to starting. If you re-injure or re-aggravate a pre-existing injury, it’s going to hinder your training, and probably lead you to stop exercising altogether.
- Do I need extra motivation? Let’s face it, many people don’t exercise simply because they don’t feel like it. Do you not like going by yourself? Maybe your not sure what exercises that you should be doing? Chances are, if you have invested money into something, it’s more likely that you are going to make your fitness appointments, work harder, and in turn, see more results.
