At-Home Workouts vs. Hiring a Personal Trainer

- Advertisement -

You have embarked on in-home exercising, or maybe you have been doing it for some time.  After all, it is convenient and you don’t have to worry about getting to and from the gym in all kinds of weather.  Maybe you have even invested in some type of electronic device that will help you get into shape.

At some point in this journey you will start to wonder if it is a good idea to hire a personal trainer.  Here is some food for thought.

Not Seeing Results

You have set goals but you don’t seem to be reaching them.  This is where you need to evaluate your current program to be sure it is right for your ultimate result.

At home, you can be sure you are performing the exercises the way they are described or you can find another program or set of exercises that are more in line with what you want to achieve.

With a personal trainer in Toronto, you have someone who can evaluate what you are doing to be sure you are doing the exercises correctly.  By visually assessing your posture or other issues (are you really holding the leg lift at the correct angle?), you will have a better idea of how you are performing.  They can also make some small changes to get you on track.  It could be that you are making progress but not where you intend it.  There can also be other, equally effective, exercises that will produce results closer to your goal.

In the Beginning…

For many people embarking on an exercise program is a new experience.  It can be difficult to decide how to start.  Online sources can be helpful but the decision can be complex.

Personal trainers have experience working with people of all shapes and ages.  Based on your current fitness and goals, plus flexibility and any impediments, they can create a series of exercises and schedule that will meet your needs.  You can choose the intensity and frequency.  The trainer can educate you to know which exercises, weights, etc. will best suit your needs and how to increase the intensity or frequency as you become more adept.  They are also able to show you how to monitor your progress and to use various tools like a heart monitor.

Ongoing Progress

If you are tired of the same video or just riding the indoor electronic bike, check with a personal trainer who can help you out of a rut and suggest variety in your workout routine.  They can provide a fresh perspective and return the fun.  They have worked with other individuals who are in-home exercisers and can suggest other equipment that may be of interest to you.

Hiring a personal trainer for only a few sessions can make a major difference in your in-home operation.  You can find additional motivation and accountability.  You have made the commitment to change your physical workout, and a personal trainer can help you achieve your goals.
