Hiring a personal trainer is not just for Hollywood actors or the ultra-rich. Everyone can benefit from the guidance of a personal trainer.  Here are 7 reasons why you need a personal trainer.

1. Education

Being educated while exercising is essential to maximizing effectiveness and for reducing the risk of injury. A personal trainer will educate you in all aspects of your program. From movement patterns in weightlifting, to form cues in your conditioning, your trainer will help you perfect your routine and help you achieve your goals.

2. Motivation

Sometimes your workout can feel like a chore. The hardest part can be showing up because there just aren’t enough hours in a day. Whatever the reason, sometimes it’s difficult to find the motivation to work out. Having a consistent schedule with your trainer may give you that added boost to show up, put the work in, and move the needle towards achieving your goals. Sometimes all we need is support.

3. Accountability

Accountability falls right in line with motivation.  A good trainer will help you throw those excuses out the window. Our job is to ensure that you don’t feel too tired.  We want you to show up, and we want you to enjoy what you’re showing up for. Sticking to a fitness schedule will ensure that you follow through with keeping your vision and your “why” at the forefront of your mind.  Your session time is “your” time. Don’t miss out on it!

4. Customization

A common misconception is that trainers are always super high energy, in your face, and make you work to exhaustion with heavy lifting and constant conditioning. That is far from the truth! Your personal trainer is here to customize your plan and keep you safe. We want you to leave feeling better than how you came in! 

Be sure to tell your trainer exactly what you are looking for so you can come up with an appropriate plan together.  This ensures realistic expectations, sets smart goals, and provides an outline for accomplishing your goals. 

Yes, your past and present injuries and health conditions matter!  We are here to help you get the most out of your workouts, be more effective, and keep your body healthy.

5. Variety

Having a trainer will allow you to have more flexibility in all aspects of your health and fitness journey. You get to choose the workout times that work for you. You aren’t confined to a class schedule. You get the opportunity to see new exercises or exercise variations that can make your routine more interesting. The program you perform does not have to be boring. You don’t have to do the same thing every week. Your trainer will take care of the scaling and modifications in your plan.

6. Challenging

It’s easy to get bored with a fitness routine. Maybe the program you’ve been following has led to a plateau and now you aren’t seeing the results that you want. A personal trainer will challenge you and take you to the next level. They will implement a plan to keep you off of that plateau and introduce new exercises to keep challenging you. It’s always more rewarding to succeed through something that challenges you.

7. More Than Fitness

Your personal trainer is so much more than just a fitness coach. It could be argued that their main job is actually to be your therapist. You spend a lot of time together and get to know many aspects of each other’s lives. They want to listen to your needs, and they are determined to help you solve your problems. Your well-being is more important to them than anything fitness related. Yes, fitness and nutrition are a piece of what a trainer does for you, but at Invictus Fitness, your mindset and mental health are just as, if not more important to our coaches.  We want to see you live a happy, healthy, and stress-free life!
