Motivation and Monitoring
A personal trainer can be an effective way to get motivated about sticking to an exercise schedule. As well as devising your workout schedule, your personal fitness trainer will monitor your progress and let you know how you are advancing toward your fitness goals. If you are prone to making excuses not to exercise, the presence and monitoring of a personal trainer may make it more difficult to avoid exercising on a routine basis.
Personal fitness trainers can help educate you about how to exercise efficiently and what activities and intensity levels are appropriate for your age and ability. A trainer will also discuss your medical history and present health condition. She can monitor your execution of these exercises to make sure you’re performing them effectively. Your personal trainer can also advise you about appropriate sporting equipment choices such as the best type of training shoes for your body type and exercise style.
Your personal trainer will create an exercise plan which is specific to your personal medical history and heath goals. He/she can make sure you don’t attempt any common exercises or exercise forms which are inappropriate or dangerous for you; as well can adapt exercises and workouts to accommodate an existing injury or disability. Personal trainers can play an important part in recovery and rehabilitation.
If you are new to regular exercise, or if you have a health condition which may be exacerbated by exercise, the presence of a personal trainer can help ensure your personal safety while you’re working out. If you are significantly obese, starting an exercise program intended for weight loss may be done most safely with the presence or supervision of a personal trainer to hold you accountable. Also, strenuous exercise may carry risk of injury (ie. bad form or placing your heart under strain). If you experience problems while working out, your personal trainer can call or assist with medical help.
