Why Private Personal Training Might Be The Key To Achieving Your Exercise Goals

Posted on: 27 September 2021

Are you tired of always talking about losing a few pounds or finally getting back into shape but never doing anything about it? Or, do you try to develop new healthy habits but they never stick? Maintaining motivation to exercise is tricky, and the internet is overflowing with everyone's stories and advice. How do you know what to try? How do you know what will work the best for you, your lifestyle, and your body type? You should consider trying a private personal training session. A personal trainer might be able to finally help you overcome the obstacles you've been facing. Here's why: 

More Accountability

One piece of advice that gets thrown around a lot is to have an accountability partner. You're more likely to show up to workout if someone is waiting on you or if you have to report to somebody. Even if you have people in your life that support your health goals, finding a partner can be easier said than done. In the end, people are busy and may not be able to exercise when you can or they may not want to risk coming across as harsh if you're slacking in your goals. Scheduling private personal training sessions will be more motivating. Knowing someone is waiting for you to show up will help get you out of bed in the morning, and you won't even have to worry about bothering friends or family to get that accountability. 

Motivation from Spending Money

Most people have a hard time keeping commitments to just themselves, especially if there's no immediate consequence. However, most people also want to get their money's worth out of something they buy. If you pay for private personal training, then most likely you'll feel the need to put in all your effort. After all, you already paid for it and wouldn't want to waste your hard-earned money! Even if you haven't done well with your exercise goals in the past, this trick might click with you. Investing financially in your goals can be a powerful motivator, as it proves to your brain that you really are serious about your health. 

Personalized Advice

Maybe some super buff influencer swears that exercise first thing in the morning is the answer but your baby wakes you at night, making you exhausted in the morning. Or maybe an athlete promises that a certain move helped her get stronger but that move strains your knees too much and you don't know if it's a good idea. No matter what success stories you read, every person and body is different. That means that all advice out there isn't for you. Private training sessions will allow you to receive personalized advice from a trainer. You can explain exactly how an old injury flares up when you lift or what circumstances keep you from your exercise routine. As you work with them, they will have the chance to observe you and give more specific advice. That's going to be much more helpful than some stranger's blog. 

You've fallen short of your goals in the past, but put the past behind you and start fresh by scheduling a private personal training session as soon as you can!
