The gym is an intimidating place. For most people who have regular lives, the gym is a foreign place with hundreds of machines, weights and people doing an assortment of things.
It can be hard to get started, especially if you are a new to working out or have little experience working out at a gym. Most people simply go to a gym and try things on their own or copy what others are doing. Sadly, most will never see results because they are lacking the most important ingredient necessary for success; preparation.
For every book or website that promises to get you a six pack in 4 weeks, or to lose 10 pounds in 10 days, there is a confused individual trying to follow the advice of these articles. The truth is, there is no one size fits all approach in exercise and nutritional science.
Most personal trainers that have put in the hard work and time studying in University or attending workshops, know how to create programs for clients based on their body composition, body-type & fitness ability.
A good personal trainer will be able to tailor your training needs based on your fitness goals. This involves the types of exercises, frequency of sessions and ratio of resistance training to cardiovascular exercise.
Personal training can benefit anyone regardless of their fitness level. I’ve worked with beginners who’ve never stepped in a gym to sports athletes who play at a competitive level. It doesn’t matter if you are trying to gain 10 pounds of muscle or lose 100 pounds of fat.
A good personal trainer will study your situation and your fitness goals and formulate an effective plan designed to get you to where you need to be.
