Today we are going to talk about whether you need to hire a personal trainer, or not.
You may know that I am a registered dietitian, but I’m also a certified personal trainer and I have a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science.
If you are trying to lead a healthy lifestyle, it is impossible to do that without regular exercise.
I’m not saying that you have to train for marathons or half marathons, but regular exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.
3 things I think personal trainers are great for:
- is form. If you don’t know how to do a squat. If you don’t know how to do a lung or a bicep curl. These are key points a trainer should be able to teach you about form. You need to learn the proper form for starters so you don’t hurt yourself, but also to make sure you’re working the proper muscles. So trainers can teach you form if you do not know it.
- is once I know the form, how many times am I suppose to squat? How many reps? How many sets? Do I just take off and do as many as I can do? Do I do 10 sets of 5? What am I suppose to do? A trainer can help you determine all of this, and it will vary based on what YOUR goals are. It won’t be the same for everyone.
- is accountability. The accountability of having a set appointment where it’s not an option to late cancel.
And finally here’s a couple of questions to ask when you are looking for a personal trainer:
1. Do they work with weight loss clients, is that their passion?
2. How do the workouts vary for a women like me vs. a women of the same age at her ideal body weight.
