Personal Training can benefit everybody – from the individual who is considering fitness for the first time to the elite athlete looking to enhance performance. Everyone can benefit from personal training!
Working with a Personal Fitness Trainer, you can achieve your fitness goals – goals as modest as touching your toes again or as ambitious as preparing for a marathon. Each of us is unique; we all have different goals, ambitions and desires. A Personal Fitness Trainer can help you attain your aspirations – how? By listening to you and understanding your goals and personal time commitments.
Your personal trainer will:
- Assess your current level of fitness
- Listen to you and your goals and then;
- Devise a personal training program to achieve these goals
in a safe environment, and;
- Continue to encourage and motivate you through creative and fun exercise programming.
We never hesitate to spend money on vehicle maintenance, yet we hesitate to spend money on the most important vehicle we own – our body! Our bodies carry us through life all day – every day. How will we go through life in our body vehicle depends on how well we maintain it.
The benefits of fitness training and nutritional programs are numerous and extend beyond the obvious. Hard work and the right diet can offer the following benefits:
- Change in appearance (loss of pounds and inches)
- Reduced body fat
- The Feel Good Factor
- Increased muscle and bone mass
- Improved strength
- Increased energy
- Lowered blood pressure
- Regulated heart rate
- Greater respiratory capacity
- Decreased muscle injuries
- Better flexibility and coordination
- Lower levels of stress, anxiety, and depression
- Improved sleeping patterns
- Reduced risk for various chronic diseases
- Increased longevity
When you exercise your heart has to work harder to pump blood around your body. Over time the strength of your heart will increase and it will be able to pump more blood and provide more energy to your body when needed.
Fitness training can also improve the overall appearance of your body. Even if you are targeting specific areas, you will notice improvements in other parts of your body also. For example, if you are focusing on your abdominal muscles you are likely to tone your thighs also with exercises such as leg raises.
Apart from physical benefits, fitness training can also have mental benefits. There are a number of theories behind how physical exercise can improve your brain. Some suggest that the discipline that comes from sticking to a training schedule helps you organise your mind. Others believe that when you exercise you empty your mind of all life’s stresses and worries, which makes it easier to focus. Physical exercise has also been associated with a feeling of happiness and relaxation. This feeling has been related with exercise triggering the release of additional chemicals such as endorphins.
A fourth benefit of fitness training is that it can help people who suffer from a number of ailments. If you suffer from arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, regular exercise can help you reduce the symptoms.
To realise the benefits listed it is important that you begin to implement a regular fitness training routine into your lifestyle. If you notice that you are feeling tired and lacking energy, maybe you should consider introducing an exercise routine into your lifestyle. If the shopping bags seem too heavy when you carry them home maybe you should consider weight training. Doing a bit of exercise each day can seriously enhance your overall lifestyle.
