How A Personal Trainer Can Help You Reach A Specific Fitness Goal

How A Personal Trainer Can Help You Reach A Specific Fitness Goal

Everyone’s motivation for going to the gym is slightly different. Some people want to develop healthier habits, some people want to become more fit in general, and others have specific goals. These goals can range from dropping a few pounds before an event, toning a certain area of the body, strengthening particular muscle groups, training for a competitive event, or more. If you have a specific goal to reach, it may be difficult to do this alone. Not only does it take intense motivation, but specific fitness goals also require targeting certain areas and using particular workouts. A personal trainer can help you stay on track and reach your specific fitness goal.

Ways A Personal Trainer Helps You Reach Your Goals

Teach You Proper Technique
If you are just starting your fitness journey or you are trying a new type of workout, you may not know the proper technique. Not knowing the proper techniques can make it difficult to effectively target the area you want and can lead to potential injury. By working with a personal trainer you know that you are exercising safely and effectively. Although there are plenty of tutorials online these days, the truth of the matter is that everyone is different and the correct technique is not a one-size-fits-all solution. People have different physiologies, goals, and medical concerns that may influence their technique. Watching someone else work out is not a great way to develop your own technique and it is better to have an experienced personal trainer help you and tailor your technique to your specific needs.

Give You Exercises That Target Specific Areas
If your goal is to get a flat stomach, your personal trainer will teach you exercises that focus on your core and that will help you drop belly fat. If your goal is to run a marathon, your personal trainer will give you a routine that is heavily focused on cardio and stamina. If your goal is to become stronger overall, your personal trainer will focus on weight lifting and other muscle-building exercises. When you have a specific goal in mind, your personal trainer will give you the tools to reach that goal and will concentrate your workouts on reaching this achievement.

Personalize Workouts
Your personal trainer will do more than just create a workout specific to your own goals. Your personal trainer will also take into account aspects of your individual needs. Your personal trainer can accommodate any medical conditions or past injuries, they can help you build up stamina if you are new to working out, and they can adjust their motivational techniques to accommodate your needs. Personal trainers can adapt if you respond best to positive encouragement when you do things well or if you want a trainer who points out when your form is wrong and doesn’t sugar coat it. 

Keep You Motivated
A personal trainer will not only adapt their motivation style, but they will also keep you motivated in other ways. Working with a personal trainer will also hold you accountable. Since you have someone waiting on you and there is often a cancellation fee 24 hours before the session, you can’t avoid your workout just because you don’t feel like it. Your personal trainer will also ensure that you utilize every minute of your time together so that you get the most out of your personal training sessions. Your personal trainer can remind you about your goal throughout each session as a way to help you remember why you are working so hard.

Track Your Progress
When you have a specific goal in mind, your personal trainer can easily track your progress. If you want to run for longer, they can time you and compare the times over the course of your sessions. If you are trying to get stronger, they can track the amount of weight you are lifting. You can even track your measurements or body fat percentage if your goal is weight loss. When your personal trainer keeps a detailed record of your progress, it allows you to see how far you’ve come and gives you the motivation to keep going until you’ve reached your goal.
