In the past few years personal training has gone from being a luxury - something only celebrities could afford - to becoming something that everyone can consider.
Personal training can help at many different times. Some of the most common reasons that people turn to personal training include:
- Motivation :
No matter how much you might enjoy working out, there are times when it is just hard work - that's where a personal trainer comes in. Having someone else to work out with makes it much harder to skip a workout or take it easy if you don't feel in the mood.
- Marathon/triathlon preparation :
Using a personal trainer when preparing for a difficult endurance event can mean the difference between being fresh and ready to go to, or injured and exhausted by the time the race rolls around.
- Pre/post Natal :
In the UK the Guild of Pregnancy and Postnatal Exercise Instructors work to promote the teaching of specialised exercise courses for mothers during the childbearing years. Finding an instructor who has been trained to work with pre and post natal women will guarantee that you are receiving the best possible care when you exercise.
Whatever your goals or reasons, making the investment in a personal trainer is important. They will write a custom-designed programme for you, and show you the correct way to exercise - this can often be the difference between good results and poor results, a dramatically improved physique or an injury.
