Highlighting the benifits of having a Persoanl Trainer.
Throughout society in every occupation you can think of, there is an expert in that trade or stream that can offer guidance and a professional opinion. If our car breaks down we take it to a mechanic, every year around tax time, most of us make our way to see an accountant. These are just a few examples of professionals who specialise in their given trade and can offer knowledge and expertise. The fitness industry is exactly the same. Personal trainers are exercise specialists that can assist you in numerous ways in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Being aware of the advantages that physical training can offer is expanding, as is the current client market.
A personal trainer can educate you on anatomy, the functions of the human body, nutritional aspects and also the proper way to use exercise equipment. If you have medical restrictions or an injury a personal trainer can liase and work with your doctor or therapist to assist in areas such as lowering cholesterol levels, and more specific injuries like post operation rehabilitation.
The services that you receive are only limited by your imagination. A personal trainer or fitness professional will additionally offer education, support, motivation, positive feedback, exercise prescription, (program design), sports specific training, and offer advice on injury prevention.
As we all know there are numerous advantages that physical training can offer such as;
*Increase your metabolism, meaning that while you are exercising or at rest, you will automatically burn more calories than someone who is not physically active.
*Decrease your risk of osteoporosis – increased exercise activity increases the release of calcium for muscular contractions. A lack of exercise and sufficient calcium result in brittle bones, which break easily.
*Decrease stress – an exercise regime gives you a sense of accomplishment and has been proven to reduce stress levels. Stress is also known to be one of the leading causes of heart disease.
*Increase your self-esteem, which in turn increases work performance and job proficiency.
*Increases your ability to take on more without becoming fatigued quickly.
*Gives you an outlet for social contact and can greatly assist in improving the social side of your life.
*Enables parents to act as role models and sets a healthy and valuable example for their children.
*And most of all - exercise increases your quality of life.
Depending on your specific goal, a personal trainer can ideally suit a program to your individual requirements and prescribe the right amount of Cardio, strength, or flexibility training, to get you back into great shape. If you find that you need to get in shape but lack motivation and need that extra little push, then a personal trainer might be the perfect person to kick start that old workout routine. Even if you are currently doing the hard yards and training several times a week but aren’t seeing any progress then a personal trainer can be very helpful to an already motivated person.
Throughout the country there are even personal trainers that cater for your hectic lifestyle and for ease and convenience make training possible by bringing fitness to your living room or office.
The above advantages are gained from having a thorough knowledge of fitness and the prospect of feeling healthier far exceed the financial costs. Personal Trainers as with any form of professional practice greatly vary in price, ranging in the price from $40-$90 per hour depending on the individual and the circumstances. It's easy to say I don't have the time, the money, or the will power. It's easy to claim that it's to hard or to look for an easier solution. But then again, what is there in life worth having that is easily achieved? If health and fitness were simple - we would all be fit and healthy.
In conclusion, There are no two people alike. Individuals, whether males or females are built diversely and have different health considerations. Each person is distinctive and requires a specific program to cater for their own individual needs. The exercise program that is compiled for you should reflect your current health condition, strengths, and areas that require improvement. Whether you are a person who wants to lose weight, gain muscle or improve on overall health, a personal trainer or fitness professional will be able to design an exercise program that is most suited to you.
