You’ll be heading for a new peak before you know it.

Advice from friends, gym trainers and magazines can be confusing, overwhelming and contradictory. A personal trainer will take the guessing out by tailoriung your workout and programme for your specific goals and body type. Each workout with the personal trainer will be tailored for you to get maximum benefits without overdoing it. They will also support you in fitting in other workouts and activities into your life in a manageable way.

Some people just don’t like the gym environment. A personal trainer can get you working out in the comfort of your own home, a private studio or outside getting some much needed fresh air.

Anyone can get stuck in a rut. A trainer will constantly engage you with new challenges and ways to train. You never know what new toy they might have too.

Like anyone else, even I don’t work as hard as I do with someone standing over me, supporting, challenging and not letting me slack off just because it’s getting hard!
6. You Want Confidence To Workout On Your Own
It’s very common for people to think that everyone else in the gym is super experienced and super confident, and worse than that, are worried about what you are up to. Getting a few sessions on with a personal trainer will increase your confidence in general and will turn you into and expert gym user yourself.
7. You’re Motivated by Accountability
Trainers come with built-in motivation. Not only are you investing money into your exercise program… you’re investing time as well. There’s nothing like a standing appointment to get your butt in gear for a workout. Not only that, a trainer provides some accountability so, even when you don’t have a session, you know your trainer will be asking if you did your planned workouts. Just knowing that may make it harder to skip your workouts.
8. You Have A Specific Illness, Injury Or Condition
An experienced trainer can help you with specific problems like old injuries, diabetes, arthritis. Working with your doctor or physiotherapist, if necessary, a personal trainer can help you get the best possible help to improve your overall fitness in a safe and effective way.

Trainers can help you with sport specific training and programmes for anything from marathon events to badminton. They can also provide relevant cross training to keep you strong, balanced and injury proof.
10. You Want Supervision And Support During Workouts
Some people know how to exercise and they even know how to do the exercises correctly, but they like having a trainer around for support and supervision. If you’re lifting very heavy weights or need someone to help with partner-type exercises, working with a trainer might be a good choice for you. They can spot you during workouts and help you come up with a good training plan for your goals.
