Working With a Personal Trainer to Help You Lose Weight: Pros and Cons



fitness coach


Have you been trying to work-out by yourself but don’t have the motivation or the knowledge to do so? Do you think you have what it takes to do your own workouts and keep yourself motivated enough to keep doing the workouts you need and want to do? Have you considered hiring a personal trainer? If you have thought about hiring one, maybe you need to consider the pros and cons of doing so first before jumping in with both feet.



A Personal Trainer Will Keep You Motivated


If you lack the motivation you need to keep working out every day, a personal trainer is not only passionate about keeping you going every day and keeping your motivation up, but they are paid to do so. For example, if one day you say you don’t feel like working out but you should, they will push you to get it done. They will keep reminding you why you need to do this, why you want to keep working out, and how good you will feel after you are done every time.


A Personal Trainer Can Create a Workout Plan Just for You


You don’t really know it yet but you should actually have a workout plan tailored just for you. By hiring a personal trainer, you can have this done for you. They will ask you certain questions and look at your weight and height and ask you about your medical history and design a workout plan that is for you only. This plan will give you the best results possible for getting fit and staying fit and healthy for a longer life.




Personal Trainers Are Expensive


Although personal trainers are often expensive with their services, they are worth every dime you can afford to spend on one. This is because they know exactly what they are doing and will whip you into shape like you most likely have never been whipped into shape before in your entire life. However, if you don’t have much money, you may want to skip the personal trainer and do things yourself. Your workout plan might not be as good as it would be with one but if you don’t have the money for one, there is nothing you can do about it. Maybe you could save up the money and hire one in the future.


Personal Trainers Cannot Advise You on Nutrition


Unless they are also certified nutritionists, personal trainers cannot advise you on your diet goals. You can ask your personal trainer if they are also certified in nutrition and if they are, this is perfect for you. However, if they are not, you will have to find a certified nutritionist and this will cost you even more money.


These are just a few pros and cons you need to consider before hiring a personal trainer. However, surely you can think of a few more things to consider before hiring one. Think about these few pros and cons and whatever other pros and cons you can think of, and weigh your options before hiring a personal trainer to help you with your workout routine.

4 Advice to Start Your Exercise Routine When You Are Already Overweight




Although some people, those who are already skinny to begin with, say that healthy living is the easiest thing to do in your life, this isn’t true for those who are already overweight to begin with. One thing is for sure, when you are overweight and intend on going on a diet and starting an exercise routine, you don’t want to jump in with both feet. By doing this, you can not only hate your life because of the diet and exercise routine you started too fast, but you could hurt yourself as well. Jumping into something like this too fast can be bad for your health. Keep reading to learn the do’s and the don’ts of starting your exercise routine when you are already overweight.


1 – Do Cut Yourself Some Slack


Cutting yourself some slack is something you want to do before you even start on the road to weight loss. This means, don’t beat yourself up over how you got overweight or why. Show yourself some compassion if you want to be successful at losing the weight you want to lose. Don’t feel sorry for yourself or even blame yourself or this will set you up for failure right from the beginning.


2 – Do Think of Healthy Living as a Skill Set You Can Improve at Instead of Just Something You Do Right from the Beginning


Think of healthy living as a skill you can improve at instead of something you just jump right into knowing how to do it from the beginning. For example; think of living healthy like learning how to ride a bike. You get on the bike and if you fall off of it, you don’t cry and give up but instead you jump right back on and try again. Thinking of it as a learning curve will bring you greater success than just getting it right from the beginning.


3 – Do Find Something You Enjoy Doing


Do you enjoy swimming, riding a bike, running or jogging, or walking with friends and family? Find something you can have fun with or relax while doing it and you will be successful better than going to the gym if you hate the gym. Finding something you enjoy doing and starting with that will put you on the road to a successful weight loss journey.


4 – Don’t Focus on the End Result


Instead of focusing on the finish line or the end result, focus on what can be done right now. Try to achieve little goals while trying to lose weight. For example, you can start out with a goal of losing 10 pounds in three months or something similar to that. You can’t see the future so don’t go looking ahead of schedule. Instead, concentrate on those little goals you can achieve right now.


By using the tips above, you WILL lose the weight you want to lose. Stay positive and happy about your weight loss journey and you will be as successful as you want to be.
