5 tips to get the most of your Personal Trainer

Having a personal trainer can be massively advantageous to your fitness and general health.

Personal Trainers are fantastic at creating tailored exercise regimes and ensuring that the goals you set are realistic and achievable. While the main focus is on improving your physical health, exercising and using a Personal Trainer has a positive impact on mental health too.

That being said, there are some things you can do so that you get the most out of your experience.

5 tips to get the most of your Personal Trainer

#1 Ask questions

A lot of the time, getting the best from a personal trainer lies in having confidence.

If you aren’t sure about something – just ask.

Personal Trainers are there to work with you and if you aren’t sure about something or need clarification on exercises and training, ask as many questions as you need. As a Personal Trainer, we want to be sure that you are comfortable and confident in what you are doing and if you don’t communicate any concerns or questions it can hinder your progress.

#2 Warm up beforehand

Your Personal Trainer will show you the proper exercises and stretches you need to have a proper warm up.

Once you know what you need to do to get your muscles working which will help prevent injuries, you can work with your Personal Trainer on more difficult and challenging exercises. This means you will have more time to spend on actual training instead of wasting some of the sessions warming up.

#3 Be honest

One of the crucial things when working with clients as a personal trainer is that they are honest. This includes things such as being honest with their meal plans and what they have eaten that week, any injuries they might have picked up or if a workout is too intense or not intense enough.

We aren’t mind readers and one way to get the most of your sessions and to also help you to achieve your goals is to be honest and open with your Personal Trainer.

#4 Keep a record of your sessions

More than likely you’ll only be with your personal trainer for a relatively short time. This could be weeks or it could even be months but it is unlikely to be forever.

Even though a personal trainer might not be as expensive as you might think, you’ll no doubt get to the point where you can train on your own.

This is why you should keep a record of the exercises and training sessions (if your Personal Trainer doesn’t give you one). This means you can continue on after you have your last personal training session and you won’t need to remember how many reps you need to do or how long you need to focus on one exercise for.

#5 Make sure you’re on time

It sounds simple but turning up late is just eating into your personal training session.

Even being late by a few minutes will cut down on how long you will have your personal trainer for. As most Personal Trainers are pretty busy chances are they will have a client in right after you.

Obviously things come up and it is also possible to be on time but try to consistently get there early as it means you’ll get the most benefit from using a Personal Trainer.
