People use personal trainers for different reasons.

For my part, I have used a personal trainer because I wanted to challenge myself extra, see what I could do when a PT pushes me. Also there are plenty of tips and advice to pick up on when I´ve talked to personal trainers. I’ve only had one or two hours with a personal trainer since I started training three years, but each time I’ve gotten something good out of it. I was pushed a little extra, I learned new exercise combinations, but most importantly for me: I was pushed to take the training session a step further. And I had fun! It was heavy, but fun 🙂

To get a great benefit of a personal trainer, it is advisable to purchase at least a package of three hours.

You can´t get it all done and learned in one hour. It’s about getting regular monitoring be someone that is certified in the field of personal training, it´s about getting the proper technique and exercise combinations, it´s about  the extra challenge and it´s about feeling the sense of mastering even after the session with the personal trainer is finished.

Fun fact: Some studies suggest that the training effect automatically rises by 50% if you train with another person!

For my own part, based on my experience with a personal trainer, I can conclude 8 reasons to have a one:

  1. Working out is science. You have much to gain from a personal trainer who has studied the subject, than by learning on your own.
  2. To have a professional helping you train correctly and efficiently towards your goals.
  3. To have a professional pushing you and challenging you.
  4. For (additional?) motivation to go work out.
  5. If you are already well trained, or have a training background, a personal trainer for you will complement the knowledge and experience you already have, but give you input about new exercises, other approaches to help you achieve your goals.
  6. Sessions with a personal trainer will also benefit you in everyday life, in terms of both better physical and mental shape. Mastering your body and mind is a good feeling!
  7. It is an investment in your own being, your life.
  8. A chemistry with your personal trainer who you feel comfortable with, motivated by, will make the workout pleasurable, fun, although you probably have to get out of your comfort zone.
