The right trainer can accelerate your progress and get you results much more efficiently than doing it alone. They’ll help you create a plan to reach your goals, stay motivated, and stay accountable to see results. There are many reasons to have a personal trainer in your corner:
They can help prevent injury by showing you proper form
They can offer variety and creativity to your stagnant workouts
They can help you lose stubborn fat
They can show you effective techniques
But there’s nothing worse than investing yourself in training only to find out that you and your trainer aren’t a good fit for each other. Taking the time to research beforehand can help you find a trainer who’s a good fit for your needs. Finding a trainer who understands what you want and whose personality meshes well with yours is key too. If you’re a female and prefer a female trainer, that’s okay too. Look for someone who you are comfortable with, feel motivated by, and have fun with.
Making the decision to have a trainer is an important one, so make the most of your sessions with them.
Make your sessions a priority—You owe it to your trainer, and to yourself, to show up on time and be ready to work. Bring your A-game to the session and you’ll both win!
Warm-up ahead of time—Take five to ten minutes to warm up your body before your personal training session starts. This way, you can jump right into the workout and they can start to push your body into doing the tougher stuff.
Clock in some sleep—Make sure you’re well-rested for your session. Your progress and recovery depend on good sleep. Get enough z’s before a training session and you’ll have more energy for your workouts and perform better.
Be honest—Even telling your trainer a little white lie can be detrimental to your progress. Remember, you hired them to keep you accountable and to help you get results. If you aren’t telling them the whole truth about your diet or fitness plan, they can’t properly tailor your plan to meet your goals.
Trust your trainer— A good trainer will keep motivating you when you want to quit but won’t let you give up on them, or, on yourself. It’s absolutely okay to ask them specific questions or give your own input to the workout.
