Is hiring a personal trainer worth it? We have clients ask us this all the time. Of course we believe that it’s invaluable, as the saying goes “Treat your body well – it’s the only one you have.” But in case you aren’t convinced here are a few reasons why personal training is worth the investment.
1. Focus on YOU: When you start working out with a personal trainer, you are able to individually work on your goals. Whether it’s a specific body part you want to focus on, weight loss, muscle gain, tournament training or pain management, a qualified personal trainer will know how to help you achieve those goals.
2. Knowledge and experience: Custom Kinetics owners have years of personal training experience and countless hours of schooling, workshops and certifications that help make them the best at what they do. The owners, Geoff and Tim are always learning new and better ways to help each of their clients. Their motto is: “We will always be students to our craft because if we think we know all there is too personal training then we’re not doing our job right.”
3. Safety and injury prevention: Personal trainers guide you through each exercise, so you are a lot less likely to hurt yourself. They know what you can and can’t handle and will tailor each exercise to your fitness ability.
4. Motivation and accountability: Getting into a workout routine will not always come easy, which is why it’s great to have a trainer there to help push you through your doubts and excuses and who will hold you accountable! The trainers are not drill sergeants, but will make sure that you’re doing what you are supposed to be doing because they care about YOU and your health.
5. Nutritional guidance: Not all personal trainers will guide you through a good nutrition plan, but at Custom Kinetics, we work with each person on a meal plan that will help them achieve their goals. If you need help reading nutrition labels, figuring out what and when to eat, how to shop at the grocery store, and healthy recipes – Custom Kinetics is here for you! Nutrition and exercise go hand in hand so it only makes sense that a qualified personal trainer will also help in the nutrition department.
These are just a few of the benefits that come with having a personal trainer. If you’re worried about the price, ask yourself how much your health and your body are worth to you? Maybe you’ll have to give up going to Starbucks every morning or will have to pack a couple of lunches instead of going out to eat, but if you make your health a priority you will find a way to make it work!
