5 Benefits Of Training With A PT

  1. Education. Trainers are trained in teaching people how to exercise. Although exercise is only one part of overall fitness (with nutrition and lifestyle playing a role in the overall picture), but if you don’t get the exercise part correct you will never achieve your goals. It’s important to be educated when exercising because 1 – if you don’t have the knowledge of what exercises are best for achieving your goals it’s unlikely you will achieve them. Education is also important in reducing the risk of injury while performing an exercise. If you haven’t been taught how to bench press properly, chances are this may greatly increase the risk levels of injuring yourself which can have a long term impact.
  2. Help with unique requirements. Everybody is different and has different goals. Personal trainers can work around your phobias or injuries, and will prescribe specific exercises and build a program suited you and tailored to meet your specific goals. There will be some days when the last thing you feel like is a hard workout, so having a PT means they can accommodate your mood while still making the session helpful.
  3. Not just fitness they can help with. PTs in cert III are required to complete a module on nutrition and how it can affect fitness. PTs who then complete their IV in fitness have to then complete additional work on nutrition and then most PTs then add on additional education to their program by completing a Nutrition course.
  4. Improve mental health – An unofficial therapist! Having a PT can help with motivation, and choose the right exercises to release the most endorphins and also just to have another shoulder to lean on.

They also care because being in an unhealthy relationship may lead to bad eating habits… They are there to help your overall well being.
