Get S.M.A.R.T. with a Personal Trainer
By Damian Fisher
1. Improve Your Overall Fitness and Quality of Life
Research from the American Heart Association shows that physical activity improves the quality of life. Professional trainers can help you to improve cardiovascular health, overall strength, flexibility, endurance, balance and coordination.
2. Obtain and Maintain a Healthy Weight
You can achieve weight reduction and management, body fat reduction, shaping and toning goals with the guidance of a qualified trainer. The trainer will work with you to set personal goals which are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-Driven (S.M.A.R.T).
3. Commit to Your Goals
Qualified personal trainers understand that each client is unique and will find the best way to motivate YOU - and then hold you accountable for your goals. The trainer is your partner and knows how to motivate, inspire and challenge you with a high priority on helping you develop a healthy, active lifestyle.
4. Address Individual Health Concerns
Your personal trainer can work with your physician, physical therapist, or other health care provider to ensure a safe, efficient program, specifically designed with your health care concerns and needs in mind. This will enable you to reach your goals in a healthy fashion, or perhaps speed your recovery from previous injuries or health issues.
5. Practice Correct Technique
By learning correct form, technique and the appropriate exercises for your specific training program, you will reach your goals in a safe, timely manner.
6. Maximize Your Results on Your Schedule
Get maximum results in minimum time with a program designed specifically for your needs and schedule. You can effectively train in only 30 and 45-minute sessions one-on-one or in small groups. In a private studio, there is typically no waiting for equipment.
7. Learn New Skills
A customized program can help you develop and learn new skills and knowledge that you need to reach your goals and improve your overall conditioning.
8. Enhance Your Mind, Body and Spirit
There is a direct correlation between exercise, lower stress and overall happiness, according to a study in the Journal of Sport & Exercise Psychology, which reports the "happiness" benefit of exercise. A personal trainer can help you obtain the results you desire, and improve your overall quality of life.
9. Form a Partnership
Making a commitment to meet with your trainer regularly provides individual attention, support and motivation and accountability.
10. Take Charge of Your Program, Take Charge of Your Life!
Qualified personal trainers inspire, challenge, motivate and educate. Your dedicated personal trainer will design the right program for you by incorporating your goals with his/her expertise. By carefully choosing your personal trainer, you can select the type of guidance which best fits your personality as well as your schedule. You can obtain your goals and ultimately take responsibility for your own health. Today is the day to get started!
