10 Reasons You Should Work Out With a Personal Trainer
Personal Trainer Pro #1: They teach you new things
If you're new to the gym experience, getting a personal trainer is a smart idea. Many gyms offer a free session at sign-up to help you get familiar with the machines, and more in-depth sessions can help perfect your form.
Personal Trainer Pro #2: They're sometimes your therapist
Having friend drama? Your trainer can be the perfect person to talk it out with while you're bending, balancing, and lifting.
Personal Trainer Pro #3: They are an objective eye
We all have areas we'd like to work on, and personal trainers can not only tell you realistically what to expect with each workout, but also how to optimize a session to target different muscle groups.
Personal Trainer Pro #4: They're better than a mirror
Watching yourself while you work out can help you make sure your form is correct, but it's even better when someone is there to tweak it while you work.
Personal Trainer Pro #5: They push your limits
Just when you think you can't go anymore, you'll be told to "hold for another minute" or do "10 more reps." And what do you do? You do it, and are all the better for it.
Personal Trainer Pro #6: They hold you accountable
This one can be important for me, especially when happy hour is calling my name. It's much harder to justify blowing off an appointment with a personal trainer than just your own freestyling time at the gym.
Personal Trainer Pro #7: They keep you from plateauing
A personal trainer always has a new workout up her sleeve to keep you having fun and seeing results!
Personal Trainer Pro #8: They keep count
OK, maybe this is just me being lazy, but I just love the fact that someone else is keeping track of my reps, especially when I can barely lift my arms (let alone think) anymore.
