Why you might need a personal trainer


30 Nov 2012
We all need a little help sometimes, especially when trying to achieve our goals. And there is a change in the dynamics of relationships that gives us greater concern to our appearance and general fitness.

Social media has allowed our public identities to be under scrutiny 24/7, with employers checking on employees and potential romantic engagements doing a little research before the intended outing, prompting us to edit our public life to an ideal. There is also a change in the business world. With technological relationships taking over, there is a global cry-out for human contact. More business engagers choose to meet in person. And as always, people will judge a book by its cover.

The global concern for appearance is not new. We see everyday more and more people adopting fitness regimes, gym memberships, yoga systems despite their outright healthy and fit demeanours. But what if the classes and the gym sessions do not work. Here we highlight About.com’s article “10 Reasons To Hire A Personal Trainer” by Paige Waehner.
  1. You’re not seeing results you want
  2. You don’t know where to start
  3. You’re bored with the same old workouts you find everywhere
  4. You need to be challenged at your own skill level
  5. You want to learn to exercise on your own
  6. You need Accountability and Motivation
  7. You have a Specific Injury, Illness or Condition that does not allow you to take part in generic training
  8. You’re Training for a Sport or and Event that requires certain intensity and focus.
  9. You want Supervision and Support during workouts.
  10. You want to be able to workout in the privacy of home.
If you find any of this reasons true in your own fitness lifestyle, it is a big push for a personal trainer. (If you are attending a class and like the atmosphere, many studios offer personal classes) If in doubt who to ask, reach out to the trainers on Twofold’s list of trainers.
