OK so we've all heard that trainers are a waste of money. Why pay someone to tell you what you can easily read and learn on the web? I use to say the same thing until I happened to make a friend that was a trainer. He explained to me why it is good to get a trainer at least once when you begin to work out.
One of the great things he pointed out was that many people who started training have very bad habits such as jerking and improper form. Not only that but the way they workout such as rest periods, breathing periods, and supplement take really lack in beginners. Now this is not to put anyone down but these are very powerful section when exercising which may need a little extra attention on top of reading about it.
We can go online and easily look up a good workout routine which guides us step by step. We can even go online and find a good diet plan that will help us. Now do you think any of this really matter if you end up hurting yourself at the gym? There are several injuries every day when exercising and the majority of them are due to the lack of nutrition and improper form. But how? Everything is online and easy right? Although this may be true some people lack the ability to understand what it meant to have proper form. Too many people focus too much on the amount of weight being lifted and disregard their form causing a discomfort in your muscles. This absolutely leads to an injury. On top of that, unless someone is telling them otherwise, a person will tend to eat what they want with the mind-set of “Well I worked out today so some deep fried French fries will not do me harm”.
This is where a Gym Trainer would come in. Not only do they literally sit by your side and focus on just you, correcting your post every time it lacks. They recommend many types of workouts and allow you to understand what it is your working out. They focus on your form rather than on the weight to ensure you get the best out of your workouts.
When it comes to nutrition a Gym Trainer has more than enough knowledge about nutrition to easily set up a simple and sufficient meal plan for you. These plans are typically made from scratch targeting what you lack in and made just for you.
So if you're still in doubt about a trainer you should research a little bit more and see whether you really need one or not. Some trainer are expensive which is also why many people drift away from the idea of getting one, but there are many affordable Gym Trainers who are willing to cut many deals which will benefit both you and them. The last thing you would want happen to you is building up the courage to start exercising just so you can end up injured. In which case your doctor will more than likely highly recommend for you to stop working out for a few weeks. Now how bad would that be?
