Why get a Personal Trainer?
The truth is that we all struggle to maintain a consistent exercise routine. Some of us will get exercise on a regular schedule for a while, but then 'fall off the wagon' when some injury, illness, or out-of-town trip causes a break in the routine, and it can take months to start exercising again. Some of us will schedule exercise for ourselves, only to find other things that need to be done instead, when the time comes, thinking that we can do it tomorrow, but "tomorrow" never seems to arrive very often.
Some of us cringe at the very word, "exercise". For these people I find it more helpful to use the word "movement" instead. The truth is that we wouldn't need to exercise if we got enough movement during our daily routines. You see, humans were designed/evolved to be hunter-gatherers. In former times, we had to burn calories in the process of earning our calories. Now, we sit in cars to get to our jobs, where we sit to earn the money, to buy our calories at a centralized location that we sit in cars to get to; not to mention all the sitting and lying around that we do at home. Unfortunately, this societal change has happened too quickly for humanity to evolve to adapt to our far more sedentary lifestyles. This has lead to the growing number of people effected by a variety of diseases, and the advent of gyms.
Many people have found that scheduling exercise with a personal trainer helps to insure that they will not only show up to workout, they also get a safer and more efficient workout. Even if you have the discipline to exercise frequently you may not accomplish your goals or may even injure yourself, if you don't know how to exercise properly. A Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) can show you the best exercises for achieving the results that you desire (different exercises are more effective at shaping different parts of the body) and the proper body alignment and form for those exercises, to achieve maximum results without injury. He can also safely push you to work harder than you would otherwise push yourself, insuring you get the most out of your workout time.
