“Well I have to let you know that Janet was my first …..and she was AMAZING! I was enthusiastic, but as I look back now, I realise that I was pretty un-skilled and just making it up as I went. I really wasn’t very good at it so I wasn’t at all successful!

But my Personal Trainer, Janet, made all that change for me. Her wide range of Personal Training skills that included her caring approach, a deep technical knowledge, great inter-personal skills, a genuine love of training, structured technical programming and an unceasing enthusiasm for setting my next training goals, and her ongoing motivation for me to achieve those goals and to then set the next goals changed everything. I got out of my training ruts, I corrected a lot of technical problems and I realised where I had to focus my training time to train efficiently and to maximise results.

The bottom line is, having a Personal Trainer changed my training world for ever and as a result, I started to enjoy my training more than ever. I have been able to not only use, but keep building on that training knowledge for many years since.

So, being a member of The Gym Factory, at some point you most likely would have considered working with a Personal Trainer…..but did you know enough about what a PT does for clients, and why a PT is actually so important to you achieving your fitness goals?

Ok, let me help you a bit with this by giving you a quick run-through of the main benefits I found from using a Personal Trainer…..benefits that are really worth thinking about when you are making your Personal Trainer decision….

  • Its Educational: Your PT is trained to teach you what exercises to do, how to sequence those exercises and how to do them correctly – they will help you and you will learn along the way how you can hit your fitness goals in an effective and safe way.
  • Using the Right Technique: Your PT will ensure your correct posture and movement patterns so that you perform each exercise correctly which will help you to maximise your training results.
  • Tailored, Specific Training: Everybody’s physical abilities, anatomy, technical skills, fitness goals, training experience and learning preferences are different – your PT will base their fitness programs, their communication style and their teaching methods around YOU.
  • Setting Realistic Goals: Your PT is skilled at knowing what is achievable for you, how to set short, medium and long term goals for you and what is required for you to hit those goals.
  • Keeping You Accountable: Your PT will help you stay on track so that your fitness habits become sustainable as well as helping to quickly get back on track if you do happen to slip.
  • No Wasted Time = Maximum Effort: Your PT will have a specific plan of what you need to do in each session so you always get the best return on your invested training time.
  • General Dietary Advice: Your PT will help you to better understand the nutritional guidelines for a healthy diet and they will even help you monitor your progress with improved eating habits.
  • Your PT will Challenge You: Let’s face it, it is really easy to fall into the same old training routine, you get a bit bored and lose motivation and then you stop regularly exercising. Your PT will challenge you to keep progressing, to try new exercises, to reach new heights, to push yourself and to enjoy your training.
  • FUN!: Training can be a bit isolated at times and working with a PT will add that extra dimension of another person sharing, motivating, striving, guiding and laughing with you during your training and as well as in celebrating your achievements and new PBs!

Your Personal Trainer also has to be fully accredited and insured, they must have current First Aid and CPR certification and they have to meet the ongoing “Continuing Education Credits” requirements to maintain their professional certification. So you can be sure you are being looked after in the most professional of manners.

The bottom line is to think of your Personal Trainer as a passionate, highly motivated , self-starter fitness coach, nutrition guide and 1-1 personal motivator all wrapped up in one fitness professional. For sure, not everyone NEEDS a personal trainer, but without a one, your fitness goals will be much harder to achieve!

So really what are you waiting for? Why not speak to Steve, our PT Manager, about which Personal Trainer might suit you best, or alternatively, grab me or any of the Personal Trainers in the gym and have a chat about how you are going with achieving your fitness goals and what Personal Training options are available to you.

Train hard and smart, have fun and enjoy every minute of your health and fitness.

Cheers, Tony”
