Own Training Vs Personal Training

3 Sep No Comments Rolandas Uncategorised

Training – a physical activity, exercises tailored towards concrete goals: weight loss, boosting self confidence through improved physique, getting rid of/preventing health problems etc.

Everyone understands that in order to achieve the body changes wanted, a hard work will have to be put somewhere in a process. Not everyone realizes how specific the training and eating have to be to actually make the real progress with the particular goals…

Personal Trainer Advantages

Own training or personal training?

What do you start from?

Well, first you find some place and equipment for your training (it will depend on what type of training you’ve got on your mind). Then you clear your fridge and cupboards from all junk food and go to shop for good food.

Some people stop at this point – can’t decide on what training needs to be done; don’t know how to change their eating habits. Whereas some start going to a gym or jogging few times per week, plus eating more vegetables and fruits, avoiding fatty food and sugar.

Obviously, those who haven’t started training and dieting don’t achieve anything. What about the people who do start using their gym memberships, running outdoors, following some magazine diets etc.??? Do they all get good looking bodies, improved health and a high level of fitness? Not all but the majority will confirm their improved general well-being. What about a physique, body structure changes? Shocking low % of regular gym users, lonely morning/evening joggers and random diet practitioners will be able to boast about their achieved dream body and even lower % will be able to maintain the achievement to the day you ask them about it…

So even people who are consciously doing something about their fitness, still don’t look the way they want to and are struggling to get out of the dead point. Efforts and time wasted – not much if anything gained in exchange…

Why? Isn’t training and healthy eating the way to achieve the wanted results?

Yes, it is. BUT… The important bit – training that is NOT specific and precise to your goals is just a random physical activity that makes you tired (you don’t see workers from building sites getting on fitness magazine covers); “good” food that makes you starve and crave for any junk food is NOT “healthy” eating, just a starvation.

May sound like a cliché – proper personal training will make your time, used for training and efforts put into dieting, count.

What do you miss out training without personal trainer? What does a good personal trainer do to make the difference?

  • Personal trainer clarifies your needs – breaks it down to specific goals that you should concentrate on;
  • Personal trainer takes measurements regularly to know exactly what your progress is;
  • Personal trainer sets training and eating plans tailored to your individual goals, taking into consideration your age, genetic type, lean body mass, previous training experience, lifestyle, habits (good and bad) and scientific facts about training and dieting.
  • Personal trainer carefully manages your training intensity to have a strict periodisation guaranteeing you the everlasting progression;
  • Personal trainer gives practical tips from own experience to make the theory work in real life.

Surely, using services of a personal trainer cost quite a bit more than buying a pair of trainers for jogging or paying monthly gym membership but –

You’ve got to ask yourself:

  • What is the time consumed on the fruitless training worth to you?
  • Is it ok to spend money on a gym membership if you don’t know how exactly you should be training?
  • Ultimately, do you train to achieve your goals or what?

Be smart in choosing your personal trainer. Make sure the trainer delivers to you the qualities mentioned above, actually bringing the difference – not random but specific and accurate personal training.
