    What To Expect From A Personal Trainer

    What can I expect during my initial training session?

    During your initial meeting with a trainer, he or she will begin the process of getting to know you, in terms of your health and fitness goals, your health and exercise history, as well as your likes and dislikes. It is this information along with your trainer’s expertise and experience that will assist them in developing a customized program for you.


    After this meeting, you'll likely determine how many times you'll meet, based both on your goals and your schedule.

    Benefits Of A Personal Trainer

    The main benefits of hiring a personal trainer are as follows: they offer specific knowledge and expertise about health, fitness, nutrition and mental well-being. They'll help you maximize your results and minimize the time you spend working out. 


    They'll motivate you. Your personal fitness trainer will expect that you show up to perform all of your scheduled workouts, and will hold you accountable when you do not. They will push you to your physical and mental limits.


    How To Get The Most Out Of A Personal Trainer:

    Your first interaction with a prospective personal trainer is key — personal training is based heavily on trust. You want to work with a trainer who will make you feel comfortable, but your trainer also has to the kind of person who will push you and won't accept excuses. Enter into the first conversation with some initial goals — they can be generic, but they will give your trainer an idea of what you hope to accomplish.


    When you're in the gym, your focus needs to be on your workout and on your trainer, not your phone or any other distractions. Whatever the text or email says, it can wait until the training session is over.


    How To Get The Most Out Of Each Workout:


    Start your training regimen with realistic, achievable goals — you want them to be lofty but not daunting. You can always modify them or make them more difficult later. People often start with goals like reducing body fat percentage, getting stronger, and making fitness part of their daily routine. They might sound obvious, but you have to start somewhere. Once you get started, you can begin setting more specific goals for yourself, such as amount of miles you'll run or a specific weight you'll be able to lift.


    Tips To Maximize Your Personal Training: 

    • Be on time - it's respectful to your trainer, and it will also help you in staying consistent
    • Clean up your diet - a snack is okay here and there, but your diet will affect body fat percentage, energy levels, metabolism, and more. 
    • Get enough sleep - your sleep affects energy levels, metabolism, and more. Getting in the gym is good, but if you're not getting enough sleep, you're working against yourself.
    • Be honest - don't bite off more than you can chew. Be honest and realistic about what you hope to accomplish and what experience you have.
    • Be coachable - one of the benefits of having a trainer is the experience and know-how they bring to the table. It doesn't do much good if you refuse to listen, though, does it?
    • Track/log your progress - one of the best things you can do is jot down a few notes from each training session; it's also a good idea to check off days you made it to the gym on your calendar to keep yourself accountable.
    • Internal motivation - don't do this for someone else. Do this for you.
