So, number one, it’s going to be is for safety. For your safety, it’s important to have a personal trainer.
So, while you’re doing any type of exercise, if you’re new to training, even if you’re not new to training, you need someone who’s going to be able to be there to spot you.
You don’t want to drop the weight on yourself, you don’t want to do weight that’s too heavy and end up injuring yourself.
You need a personal trainer who’s going to watch and make sure that your form’s correct because no matter how long you’ve been training, you can start to have different training adaptations.
Which one muscle is stronger than the other, so your form starts to get off and you don’t realize that. But, if you have that trainer there, that’s going to keep you nice and safe.
And while you’re safe, it’s going to keep you healthy, which will allow you to keep training and stay on track with all of your goals.
Number two is going to be accountability. So, you’re going to need someone there that’s going to want to be there and make sure that you’re accountable for all of your goals.
Someone’s going to push you, someone, who’s going to make you want to come into the gym every day.
Someone who’s going to be your friend and who’s going to look out for you and make sure that you’re doing your best.
If you skip the gym on Tuesday at five o’clock when you’re supposed to be there, is anyone going to text you or call you and say, “Hey, where are you at? What’s going on today?” No. But, your trainer is going to help you stay accountable and stay you on track to meet all of your goals.
And that’s going to lead into number three…..
#3 Goal Setting
So, number three is going to be goal setting. With the goal setting, you need someone there that’s going to track what your goals are and make sure that those goals are actually achievable.
A lot of times people come out and they’re like, “I want to lose 25 pounds in a month.” Which realistically, that’s not an achievable goal. It would be great if you were able to, but that’s just not, that’s not an achievable goal.
But, the thing is with your trainer, they’re going to help you set goals that are achievable and when you reach those goals, they’re going to help you feel great.
Make sure that you’re writing those goals down. Your trainer is going to keep track of you and push you to the limit.
