Most people that seek out personal trainers share a common goal: to look better. Usually, people want to lose weight or put on some muscle. What many don’t consider are the endless additional benefits that you get to experience when working with a knowledgeable personal trainer. Some may think the outcome of improving the way you look is worth the cost of personal training, but for those that are hesitant, let me explain how it will be the best investment you ever make.
Improved Body Composition
Personal training will enhance and expedite results as you work towards your goals. You will look and feel better about your new body, and your newfound confidence will spill over into all aspects of your life.
Improved Strength & Mobility
A knowledgeable personal trainer will help you become stronger and more mobile while helping you reach your goals. This means you will be capable of more, you will reduce your risk of getting injured and prevent reinjury, you will reduce or eliminate joint dysfunction, and you will be able to continue doing whatever activities you love to do for the rest of your life. Imagine waking up and not feeling stiff, imagine being able to play with your kids and grandkids, and imagine being able to confidently use your body in whatever way you desire. Sounds pretty good to me.
Improved Physical Health
Your personal trainer will provide you with an exercise program to maximize your health. Cardio training will improve heart health, while reducing your risk for heart disease. Resistance training will improve bone density, keeping your bones strong and healthy as you age. Your personal training will include diet and lifestyle advice as well, that along with exercise, will drastically reduce your risk of all-cause mortality and chronic disease. This means you will increase both your life and health span.
Improved Mental Health
Your personal training program and new lifestyle habits can do wonders for your mental health. Exercise releases feel-good hormones that will reduce stress, anxiety, and even depression. Exercising will also lead to better sleep, and both will improve brain function. Cognitive decline will be slowed and your memory will improve. You will also have far more energy. A perfect recipe for being able to live the exact life you want.
Improved Social Life
Group fitness classes with a personal trainer or simply being in a gym can provide opportunities for social interactions and can make exercise more enjoyable. Additionally, personal trainers often know other like-minded individuals and can introduce you to other people who share your goals and aspirations. Looking, feeling, and moving your best will also lead to more opportunities to be social. You will attract more people, you will be complemented and approached more often, and you will likely be asked to participate on sports teams and to do other fun activities.
Personal training will be a challenge, but that will only make you more resilient in the rest of your life. By doing hard stuff multiple times every week, things you used to see as difficult will become a piece of cake. Doing chores won’t seem so hard after you run 10km. Your increased energy and confidence will help you see yourself as someone who runs towards the challenges of life now. Furthermore, if you really dive in and prioritize your personal training program, sleep, and diet you will develop a robust immune system that results in you virtually never getting sick. That alone is worth the effort.
This list is not exhaustive but does outline the power of compound interest from the hard work you put in when you prioritize your health and fitness. If you want to experience life to the fullest you need a body that is fit and healthy. Get started today by booking a free consultation here Tommy Kudoba Fitness
