Why Personal Training Plays a Crucial Role When Returning to the Gym

by Oliver Brown on Thursday 6 August 2020

 

So, what is personal training? Personal training is primarily a one on one service that allows the Personal Trainer to assist and deliver a structured programmed session to one individual, also known as client.

Examples of client goals can include body composition training, sport performance training or rehab, to name a few. 
 
Personal training not only focuses on progression within an individual’s life but also plays a part on their mental state. Personal training can assist many individuals with maintaining a healthy lifestyle while utilising the gym to keep active. Goal setting is another reason to do personal training as many individuals struggle to find the ‘why’ and ‘how’ when it comes to reaching their goals.
 
How Personal Training Can Assist You with Coming Back into the Gym
 
Personal training is a service that provides you with accountability and makes sure you’re getting the results you deserve with the work you’re putting in. For me, and many others, results play a huge part on continuing training and making the gym a ‘want to’ and not always a ‘need to’.
 
Over the isolation period in 2020, many people’s motivation to train dropped. Us personal trainers focus on reminding you of why you started in the first place, which then falls back into that accountability to help you stay on track with your fitness goals.
 
Setting a Goal and How it Can Alter Your Mindset
 
Goal setting is the number one thing that’s a must when going to the gym and striving for a purpose. Just about everyone has a goal when joining a gym. Whether it’s goaling yourself with a certain weight goal, improving their mental health, learning a new workout routine that will advance your training or just being fitter and healthier.
 
The gym is where you’ll be able to hit those goals and with the guide of a Personal Trainer along the way, those goals will easily turn into a reality. A personal trainer will help you set those clear and specific goals, and then provide accountability to achieve those goals. The best part is you can continue to build on those goals with your Personal Trainer, always progressing and moving forward your goals.
 
Maintaining a Strong and Healthy Body Physically and Mentally
 
Creating and maintaining a fit and healthy body by doing physical activity at the gym is so important. It’s allows your body to relieve stress and also release endorphins that haven’t had the chance to release if you’re doing limited movement.
 
By building a stronger and healthier you through personal training it will not only help build your confidence in new exercises, but it will help exceed your progress within your training.  By having a Personal Trainer help you along the way, you can feel safe in the safety of the movements and workouts you are doing.
 
In conclusion every one of these topics display true value in why I think personal training will help coming back to the gym. The gym and trainers are here to support and advance your training and improve your way of life.
