There are so many reasons why a Personal Trainer is essential to achieving your fitness goals, whether they be weight loss-based, sports-driven or for athletic purposes. Let's look at the top 10.

  1. Education

A Personal Trainer has the knowledge to prescribe the most effective training plan to ensure maximum results.

Education when performing exercises is also essential in reducing the risk of injury. Having a Personal Trainer beside you to demonstrate the correct posture and technique is invaluable.

  1. Specific and Realistic Goals

Everyone wants to achieve their goals straight away, whether they be weight loss, washboard abs or Thor-like biceps. But these are not always achievable.

A Personal Trainer will not only help you set realistic goals that you will be able to achieve - but they will also be able to keep you on track to hit those goals with specific targets along the way.

  1. Accountability

How many times have you said "I'll start Monday" or "I'm not eating chocolate or drinking wine this month"? How many times have you followed through versus giving up?

A Personal Trainer is critical to ensuring that you commit and stick to your fitness goals. If you've made an appointment to meet you trainer for a session, then you are far more likely to go than if you are just telling yourself you should go to the gym or for a run.

  1. Unofficial Therapist

It has long been known that physical exercise can help with mental health issues such as depression, and anxiety. Exercise releases endorphins which helps reduce pain and increase positivity.

A Personal Trainer is there to help with your fitness goals, yes, but they're also there to help improve your overall wellbeing. Sometimes, simply talking to your trainer can help alleviate some of the stress.

  1. Good Habits

Breaking bad habits, and particularly forming new ones is tough, especially on your own.

Having a Personal Trainer is like having a good angel on your shoulder encouraging you to keep going when you're feeling low in energy, or struggling with emotional eating.

  1. Personalised Training Plan

There are always going to be some exercises that you enjoy more than others; goodbye burpees!

A Personal Trainer can design a training plan to suit you and what you enjoy, as well as making sure to include the most effective exercises that are best to achieve your goals.

  1. They Fit into Your Schedule

Regardless of whether the only time you have available to train is in the early hours before work, or on your lunch break, or mid-afternoon before school pickup - a Personal Trainer is one of the most versatile professions in terms of hours.

  1. They Challenge You

Are you getting bored doing the same exercise routine every day? Have your results plateaued? Have you tried every 'diet' without any significant results?

A Personal Trainer is what you need to take you to the next level, to continuously challenge your abilities and help you achieve long term success.

  1. Personal Cheer Leader

Don't think you can lift your grandchild without pain?

Positive you won't fit back into your favourite Summer dress in 6 months?

Want to complete a 5km fun run next year, but not sure if you can?

A Personal Trainer will be by your side, to support & encourage you to achieve goals you never thought possible.

      10.They WANT to help you!

A Vision Personal Trainer is your educator, motivator & inspirer all in one, and without them your fitness goals are that much harder to achieve.

At the end of the day, their mission is to transform your life, and they will do everything to make that happen.
