Hiring a Personal Trainer- Tips for improving your work out

Written by: Matthew Kornblatt

It’s Monday morning.  You wake up at 6am to prepare yourself for the day.  It’s now 6:45am and you have to wake your kids up, get them dressed, feed them breakfast, and walk them to the bus stop.  Now all that you have to do is jump on the train and get to work by 8:45am.  Oh, and you have to actually work until 5:30pm tonight.  What’s for dinner?  Oh right, it’s your turn to make dinner tonight.  Mondays can be rough, and so can every day of the week for that matter. 

As a working parent, you must feel that you are balancing two jobs.  With so many responsibilities, how do you make sure to stay healthy and physically fit?  This is a difficult one, isn’t it?  That said, there is a way to ensure to do your body (and mind) good: hire a personal trainer.  Given that you balance several obligations on a daily basis, a personal trainer will provide you the necessary structure to remain healthy and fit.  Some other benefits of training with a fitness professional include:

  • Motivation: Having a person or group of individuals who will provide your reinforcement for your efforts is important regardless of where, when, or why you exercise.
  • Injury Prevention: Proper form leads to increased strength and flexibility while further preventing injuries.  You can try working out at the gym yourself, but personal trainers understand the right combination of exercises that will help you benefit the most.
  • Guidance: Proper guidance from a trainer can help develop your muscles in a challenging yet safe way. They address your awareness of activating muscles being used in each exercise.
  • Attitude Adjustment: Working out with a personal trainer positively effects one’s perception on physical fitness.  Once an individual starts seeing the physiological, psychological, and social benefits from exercise, she will continue to work out on a more consistent basis.
