Think a personal trainer in Cardiff is a waste of money?

Here are 6 reasons to make you think again. Working in the fitness and sporting industry, i have heard many people say “why do I need a personal trainer, they’re for celebrities and athletes?” But that’s where they are wrong. Personal trainers in Cardiff are for anybody who want to make a positive fitness change in their life.

It is important to understand what a Personal Trainer can do for you and the difference they can make throughout your fitness training. I have put together what I believe are the top 6 reasons why you should use a fitness trainer.

1. Achieve Your Goals Quicker

A personal trainer helps you define your fitness goals. They will listen to the goals you want to achieve then break your programme down into smaller, more achievable steps so you are not overawed by the programme. If you put your faith in the process you will get there.

2. A Personalised Program tailored to you

Our individual goals and preferred types of exercise are very varied. They can range from desiring greater endurance over distance to increasing muscle mass. Unfortunately our knowledge of human physiology rarely matches our ambition. In other words do you know what programme you need to undertake to achieve your goal? Professional trainers have an in depth knowledge of what is required and will design your programme to meet your particular needs.

3. Hold You Accountable for your progress

When you exercise on your own it is easy to skip a session here and there and settle since there is no one to hold you accountable for you actions. This is a leading reason for a loss of motivation as those changes you so desire seem to be taking forever. When you work with a trainer they will monitor your progress and hold you accountable for under performance.

4. Improve your Technique and Nutrition

Having a personal trainer takes away all the effort and stress of the ‘non-exercise’ part of your workouts. Once a session is booked all you need to worry about is turning up and being ready to work. Any doubts you may have over your technique, nutrition and motivation can be cast aside as your trainer will deal with it all.

5. Reduce Your Risk of Injury

A professional trainer teaches you the correct form for each movement in your exercise routine. They will observe you closely so they can correct any issues with your posture or technique. This ensures you gain the greatest possible benefit from the effort you are putting in. Also this will reduce the risk of injury, which is a fitness goal nightmare.

6. Become More Efficient With Your Time

Most of us lead increasingly busy lives so it is especially beneficial to use a personal trainer when you have a limited amount of time. A trainer will optimise the time you have available so you can be confident that you will attain the maximum benefit from the time you spend exercising each day.

Now that you know the value of using a personal trainer, i hope that this will help you achieve your fitness goals and make your decision a little easier
