So, you’ve been thinking about getting in shape for a while and now you’re considering the option of hiring a personal trainer to help.

There is no doubt that personal training will help you reach your goals both quicker and more effectively than if you went solo.

With all that in mind, let’s look at the benefits of hiring a 1 to 1 personal trainer.

Enjoy Professional Expertise with 1 to 1 Personal Training

Despite what people think, exercise and training are far more than just lifting a dumbbell over your head and swinging it around.

A great personal trainer must have a firm understanding of physiology, biomechanics, exercise technique, programming, nutrition, and people skills at the very minimum.

Get Results with 1 to 1 Personal Training

Let’s not beat around the bush, as a personal trainer we’re in the results industry. You’re spending your hard-earned cash on a service to get you results. 

Now, the results you get largely depend on the goals you have. For example, if you’re looking for a shredded weight loss transformation, then perhaps look for someone with a track record in doing just that. You can find personal trainers on with a wide range of expertise, whether it's fat-loss specialists in London or fitness-focused personal trainers in Birmingham

Undertake 1 to 1 Personal Training Wherever Works for You

Personal trainers on offer their services in a variety of locations, whether you're looking to train outdoors, at home, at a private studio, or in your local gym. For instance, there are PTs in London that will come to your house and fitness pros in Southampton that will meet you in your favourite park. There's also loads of personal trainers that provide their services online. If you're interested in training at home, personal trainers can often bring equipment to you or can suggest a few purchases to get you started (e.g., resistance bands)

Get Accountability with 1 to 1 Personal Training

One of the most powerful reasons for hiring a 1 to 1 personal trainer is having someone to be accountable to. 

Excuses sound best to the person making them up, and your personal trainer has heard every excuse in the book.

There will always be reasons stopping you from achieving your goals and there’s rarely a perfect time for anything.

However, one of the main reasons people do not achieve their goals is because they do not make them a priority.

But hiring a 1 to 1 personal trainer, you are doing just that—making your goals a priority and confirming to yourself you’ll no longer make excuses

Get Support with 1 to 1 Personal Training

We all need support when we’re trying to make a substantial change, and a personal trainer is equipped to do just that.

Chances are, they can empathise with what you’re going through as their profession is built upon just that.

You’ll find that a 1 to 1 personal trainer often ends up becoming more than just your personal trainer during your time together.

I’ve trained clients from all different backgrounds, at different phases of their lives and for different reasons. No matter the background, I can comfortably say that I’ve forged so many great relationships with clients over the years as our relationships have evolved.

The support a 1 to 1 personal trainer gives you is more than just shouting, telling you you’re doing something wrong or giving your arbitrary numbers to aim for. It’s a coaching experience in which the trainer helps you to find your own answers, change behaviours and equip you for the future.
