As a personal trainer I can account for various circumstances of potential clients choosing to decline services. It is understandable in this economy that the majority of people would love to receive the gift of free services. Excuses from people will arise and create a delay in the fitness goals of a potential client. The problem with society is there are many of us alike who seek shortcuts and lean towards cheaper options and anticipate the same results as something a little more costly. In some scenarios you most certainly can opt for a cheaper choice that will meet a need just as good as a more expensive option, but in many cases the reality of the situation is, “You get what you pay for.”
Many creators of fitness programs have secured slots on late night infomercials to sell their training services through a multitude of instructional DVDs intended to cut the costs of an actual training service. This option seems convenient and more cost friendly to the person seeking training options.The only problem is that most of the time the lack of motivation decreases the chances of completing the fitness programs. An array of programs such as P90X, Insanity, etc.are excellent fitness regimes, but the absence of a live instructor allows room for slacking and creates the possibility of someone cheating themselves from reaping the full benefits.
The purpose of a live fitness trainer is to push and encourage a person to complete the designated program. Motivation can certainly derive from the inner will power of a person, but it is common that many of us need someone to bring that extra push out of us. There is no shame in retrieving help, guidance, and motivation in fitness activities. A live personal trainer will not only lead you to completion of a training program, but we are more conscientious of a clients capabilities and incapability.
As a personal trainer I designate specific routines for different types of clients depending on their fitness goals. A live trainer also has the wherewithal to create routines to compensate and work around any medical complications inherited by the client. For example, if a client has suffered a herniated disc and has a rod in their back, it will be illogical to subject them to a training routine with strenuous lumbar exercises. Designing specific exercises for clients make the program more personalized as well.
Personal training may seem like a waste of money to some people, but it is worth it in the long run if you are serious enough to dedicate your self to the program. Personal trainers have dedicated themselves to their craft and have studied and have earned the right to help and assist people in their fitness goals. Another plus to having a live trainer rather than a recorded fitness program is having accessibility to someone who is certified in CPR and AED. What if you were undergoing strenuous physical activity through the comfort of your home and you overwork yourself to a point where you collapse? A personal trainer has the credentials and capabilities to assist you with possible emergency medical scenarios such as heart failure. It is worth the money to hire your own personal trainer, they will help you achieve your goals and possibly save your life in more ways than one.
