Is having a personal trainer a luxury? well sure it's easy to come to this conclusion when for many, it's expensive and something they don't have to have. For years personal training has indeed been seen as a luxury reserved for the high income individual or celebrity but that's just not the case anymore. The personal training market is booming, there are many more personal trainers than there once were, for the consumer this generally means cheaper and more choice when it comes to hiring a personal trainer.
1. Prevention is better than cure
Health is a concern for most of us, we want to be in good health and lead relatively healthy lives, we even protect ourselves from sudden ill health with health insurance, but what if we prevented this is the first place. Now i'm not saying you don't need health insurance but if you invest in a prevention method as well as a cure for ill health, you'll be well covered. This is where personal training can really add value, planned workout programmes designed specifically for you and your abilities, done at a convenient time and usually you don't even need to leave your house. We don't normally consider the health benefits when we have a health & fitness goal to lose 'x' pounds in 'x' months but it's certainly a by product of living a healthy lifestyle, being more active and reducing the risk of disease & illness is an investment, not an unnecessary cost!.
2. Get results, get healthy, get fit with accountability
One of the most common reasons that most people will fail or cease an exercise programme is that they don't see the point anymore, they are not getting results or have an apparent lack of time. These are easy decisions to make although I might call them excuses. A personal trainer however brings in accountability, the fact you need to do what your trainer sets you and knowing they will check up on you and that there is a someone to report to. Much like in a work environment, if you didn't have a boss, you might not be as productive. Don't worry a personal trainer does'nt normally act like a boss, shouting orders at you, but the effect is similar.
3. Health is Wealth
One of the most valued feelings is good health, to be in good health, look and feel healthy, vibrant, stress free and always smiling. To be honest you can tell the stressed manager or director that doesn't take care of their health, they look tired, they are normally pretty grumpy and generally not in good health. Increasing your fitness, becoming more healthy and start leading a healthy lifestyle through the professional assistance of a personal trainer will make you more productive, happier not to mention less stressed and vibrant.
