choose-a-personal-trainerIf you know that you want to hire a personal trainer then it can seem like an easy decision to make. However what you will probably find is that there are many local personal trainers for you to choose from. What you really need to do is make sure that you do a little research and ensure that whoever you sign up with, they are best personal trainer for your needs.

Local Personal Trainers

First of all, you need to make sure that your personal trainer is local. The chances are you are going to be visiting them a few times a week, or if they come to you there is less chance they will be late, or need to cancel. You can start by asking friends or family for their recommendations however  a search on Google can help. When you are searching online you need to make sure that you include the name of your local area in the search to narrow it down. So for example “London trainer” if you want to attend London sessions.

Skills & Experience

If you are spending money working with a personal trainer then you want to make sure that they are up to the job. Make sure you check their credentials and that they are trained to help. Their website will usually have details of their skills and experience on which is a good place to start. Have a chat to them about your goals and what you hope to achieve – they should be able to give you a rough idea of what they would do with you which can help you see whether they’re up to the job.

Times To Suit You

The last thing you want is to hire a personal trainer that has a schedule that clashes with yours. Make sure you speak to them about the sessions or classes they run before you sign up with them. Ideally you want someone that is flexible but you at least want someone that has times to suit your schedule so booking them is hassle free.

fitnessIt is a common misconception that only fat people are unhealthy and that you only need to make lifestyle changes if you are overweight. However the healthiness of your body is a lot to do with what you eat and how much you work out – and that doesn’t always reflect on your body. You could be lucky enough to have a fast metabolism or just someone that is quite active during the day, which means that you eat badly but you are still thin.

Working Out If You Are Thin

What many people do not realise is that eating badly means that your body is not as healthy as it could be, even if you are thin. What you could do is hire a personal trainer to ensure that you work out and get your blood pumping a couple of times a week, which is the best way to keep your body in tip top condition.

It could also be that you feel you are too thin or that your body is too undefined. If this is the case then hiring a personal trainer can really help. Personal trainers are used to putting together exercise and work out plans for all sorts of reasons. So they are able to recommend exercises to help people bulk up or simply give their body a bit of definition.

Hiring A Personal Trainer

There are many different types of personal trainer that you can hire, so it is important you hire one to suit your needs. Make sure you speak to the trainer that you want to hire about your needs to make sure that they are up to the job. Just remember though, many different people could benefit from hiring a personal trainer and doing more exercise you don’t have to be overweight.

What can a Personal Trainer Teach you?

As someone who is looking to make lifestyle changes, you really could benefit from hiring a personal trainer. As much as most of us know that the amount of food we eat and the exercise we do affects our body, we’re not knowledgeable enough to actually make all of this work for us.

The Right Food

When you hire a personal trainer they can give you help and advice on what foods to eat. Whether you need diet food, food to give you energy before a work out or just want knowledge with cutting certain foods from your diet, you should find that they are able to help you. Making changes to our diet can be tough going, so having someone on our side that really knows what they are talking about can really help.

The Right Exercise

Any exercise that we do can benefit our bodies, but it can be helpful to know the best exercises to do for the changes that we want to make. Personal trainers are able to recommend different exercises to work out different parts of our body.

When you work with a personal trainer they can also recommend a range of different exercises that you can carry out. This can really help with motivation because keeping things interesting and varied is the best way to keep up with the new lifestyle changes you have chosen to implement.

Changes For Life

Personal trainers are really good at recommending changes to your lifestyle that you can actually live with. No-one wants to commit to a lifestyle of just eating lettuce for the rest of their days. Instead personal trainers can teach you to implement healthy life style changes that you can actually live with and work into your life. They can teach you easy meals to cook, ways to sneak exercise into your daily routine and generally ways to change your life that are workable.

slim-vs-fatWhether you want to just get a bit fitter, lose weight or train for a sporting event exercise the problem that many people face is deciding between signing up with a personal trainer or joining a gym. The truth is that both of these have their good and bad points, read on and we’ll help you decide which is going to be the best for you.

Commitment and Motivation

When you sign up with a personal trainer you have set appointment times that you need to keep to. This means that you’re accountable to someone and that it matters when you don’t turn up. This is a fantastic way of making sure that you stay motivated and don’t just skip sessions when you’re too tired or feeling lazy.

Flexibility

On the flip side of this, joining a gym allows you to be more flexible with your time. If you wake up in the morning and feel like working out before you go to work then you can – a personal trainer probably won’t be as happy for you to call them at 7am and say you need a work out (but you can always try!).

Cost

If you look at the amount you’ll pay, you will probably find that the gym works out cheaper. You generally pay a set monthly fee to join a gym and can often negotiate a discount. However, can you honestly say that you make the most of your gym sessions and get the  best value for money? Probably not. With a personal trainer you get  a full work out session each time, so even if it costs you slightly more you definitely get MUCH better value for money.

A Full Work Out

When you join a gym you’re giving a bit of advice on how to use machines but then generally you’re left to your own devices. When you sign up with a personal trainer you get help and advice every session, which generally means you get a better work out too. Your trainer will guide to you help you achieve your goals, and will organise your programme to ensure you won’t overwork any specific part of your body. A trainer will make sure you make the of your time and that you exercise efficiently and safely.

personal-trainer-t-shirt[1]If you want to get fitter then the best way you can do this is to hire a personal trainer. Here’s why:

Motivation

It is all well and good joining a gym, but with all the best intentions in the world will you really go as often as you could do? With the gym you are in charge of when you go – so if you don’t feel like going after work, it doesn’t really matter. When you have a personal trainer you have booked sessions and appointments, so you are accountable to someone – and it matters if you don’t go.

The Right Sort Of Training

A personal trainer knows what they are doing – this means that they can suggest work outs and exercises that you can do for a particular reason. Want to improve your core or train for a marathon? They’re the experts who know how to make it happen.

Value For Money

With every personal trainer session, you get a full work out. It might work out a bit more money than a gym but you know that every session you pay for is worth it – because you’ll get a full work out and a step closer to achieving your personal goals.

Variety

The gym can get dull as most of us tend to stick to the machines and work outs that we know. A personal trainer will mix things up and no two sessions will be the same. Plus, you have an expert with you the whole time to answer any questions or help you make the most of the time with them.

Work Outs You Can Take Away With You

Many of the work outs that a personal trainer will suggest to you will have versions that you are able to do at home so you can carry on working out in your spare time, even when you don’t have a personal training session booked.

food-diaryMany of us don’t realise what we are really eating. When you think back at what you have eaten throughout the day, you’ll generally remember the main meals you had and possibly some of the snacks. What you won’t remember is exactly what went into your meals and the foods you grazed on – which are so easily forgotten. By keeping a food diary you have a really accurate record of what you have eaten. This allows you (and your Personal Trainer) to look at all sorts of things – for example whether you’re eating the right amounts and whether the balance of food types is ideal. Knowing what you are eating allows you to become accountable for the food you put in your mouth as well as looking out for any underlying problems or patterns.

Keeping A Food Diary

Keeping a food diary is easy, you just have to be organised. Firstly you should get a diary for the year, with plenty of space under each day. You should get into the habit of updating this after every meal if you can. Don’t worry if this isn’t always possible. To make sure you don’t miss out items from your diary, you could also have a notepad app on your phone or tablet – so you can make notes of what you have eaten and then transfer this to your diary at a later date. Things to include in your diary are – what you ate, how much and if there are any additions that you made to the food – e.g extra mayonnaise or sauce.

Don’t miss anything out – remember the whole point of a food diary is for it to be as accurate as possible.

As part of your regular reviews with your Personal Trainer this diary will be reviewed to make sure you’re eating the right types and amounts of food to achieve your health and fitness goals.

wwfriends[1]If you want to feel better in yourself then you’ll read loads of opinions and theories on how to make this happen. Lots of people will tell you the different things that they do to feel good however generally speaking most people agree on the same thing – exercise is key. Exercise is good for so many reasons – it helps us burn calories, it gets us active, it gets our blood pumping and it releases endorphins which leave us feel good!

However, if you actually want to take serious steps to feeling good then exercise is not the only step you should take. If you want to feel better and be healthier then you should also give consideration to the food you are eating. If you’re going to eat McDonalds for dinner every night then you probably won’t see the full benefit of working out regularly.

For many people doing exercise is not enough. Why not try and vary the work outs that you do, or give yourself goals to aim for? Anything that can help you to remain more motivated is a positive when it comes to exercise and working out. Of course, the benefit of all of this hard work isn’t just to make you feel healthier, you’ll feel so much better for it. Exercise benefits us all round and if you start to do regular, varied work outs you’ll soon feel better. Many people find that this helps them to have a new zest for life – which improves their overall outlook and can even help with confidence!
