Invest in Yourself with Personal Training
Did you ever wonder if you should hire a personal trainer? Motivation is high when women join a gym. But for some, life gets in the way, and excuses take over. “I need to stop off at the store. My kids are expecting dinner on the table. I just don’t feel like it. I’ll go tomorrow. What’s one workout? This is too hard . . . I’ll never succeed anyway! ” Before long, routine, resolve, and respect vanish. Results never happen.
Paying for one-on-one attention may seem extravagant at first. But many people find it money well spent, especially when they are first starting out. Here’s what you need to know to decide if investing in personal training is worthwhile for you.
Personal trainers are experts who have been trained and certified to help you achieve your fitness goals. Trainers have the knowledge and skills needed to:
• assess your current physical abilities
• understand your lifestyle and personality
• help you set fitness goals
• develop a program personalized for your needs
• ensure that your workouts are safe
• tweak movements so you get the optimal results for your time
• make sure you balance strength training, cardio, and flexibility
• focus on specific areas most important to you
• provide information about nutrition and encourage healthy eating
• empower you to advance on your own
• challenge you to work at your top level without burning you out
• help you to develop positive workout habits
• motivate you and give you the “extra push” you need to achieve your goals.
At Shirlee’s Fitness Club for Women, the Ultimate Women’s Gym, all our Master Tainers are experienced and certified. But beyond that, we hire trainers with specific traits: Patience and listening skills; enthusiasm and the ability to keep you motivated; and respect for women of all shapes and sizes. All our employees and independent contractors abide by a Code of Conduct that puts the client first.
To increase affordability and convenience, we offer several training options. Our rates for personal training are reasonable. We even offer a special Introduction to Personal Training Package that allows you to try out training with a Shirlee’s Fitness Coach who is an apprentice trainer. This special introduces you to training at a very affordable price. Our facilities include the best professional gym equipment, and your trainer or coach can show you how to use it correctly. Many of our clients request a specific trainer they have met by taking a group class. Others get to know a trainer by observing them working with other clients. You can also ask a manager to recommend a trainer.
Studies show that personal trainers make a difference in helping clients stick with an exercise program. Staying motivated, like anything else, is a habit you have to develop. Some lucky people never need help. But if you are not one of them, a personal trainer can get you started and help you keep momentum during the critical phase when you might otherwise give up. When a trainer devises a routine tailor-made for you and helps you stick to it, you start to see results. You look and feel better! Results serve as positive reinforcement. After a few sessions, you discover that you do not want to miss your time at the gym. You become addicted to fitness.
