When you decide to start a fitness regimen, trying to figure out where you should begin can feel a little overwhelming. There is a lot of information available online, in magazines, and by word of mouth. It can be confusing to nail down what is going to work best to help you achieve your personal fitness goals.
Whether you want to increase your level of physical fitness, focus on muscle tone, lose weight, or build your endurance, a personal trainer can help you get the best results possible. By deciding to work with a personal trainer, you are taking steps to ensure a safe, effective training routine.
Weight training on your own can lead to injuries long term if you aren’t familiar with proper form. By lifting weights that are too heavy for your current ability, or using improper form, you’re putting yourself at risk for a serious injury if you’re inexperienced.
By exercising without the guidance of a personal trainer, you run the risk of overtraining; this is a common mistake that is easily avoided. Cardio exercise is a great way to improve your overall health, but too much of a good thing can quickly become an issue. Training too hard, or for too long, doesn’t allow your body any time to recover. The symptoms of overtraining include fatigue, soreness, decreased strength and decreased muscle mass.
Hiring a personal trainer does mean an added cost, but the health risks associated with inexperience are something to be aware of. Also, you’re more likely to achieve your desired results with professional guidance. If you have questions about our personal training service or would like to learn more, contact us today.
