THE BENEFITS OF USING A PERSONAL TRAINER

-

BETH TRUEMAN, a Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritioni­st at PureGym (puregym.com), shares her top five benefits of using a training profession­al.

TEACHES YOU PROPER FORM

‘Having proper form helps you to avoid injury, target the right muscles, and improve your strength and endurance. There is no one-size-fitsall approach, however, and what works for you depends on your flexibilit­y, lever lengths and range of motion. It’s safer to work with a personal trainer than figure it out for yourself.’

HELPS YOU WORK AROUND INJURIES

‘Perhaps you’re dealing with a niggle after your last 10km run, or maybe you have a long-term injury. A personal trainer can help you to tweak your training in a way that best works for you and your needs, and helps you get the most out of your workouts.’

MOTIVATION

‘It’s completely normal to feel unmotivate­d from time to time, but a personal trainer is there to support you every step of the way.’

TAKES THE GUESSWORK OUT OF TRAINING

‘A PT can help you achieve your goals by creating a personalis­ed training plan, saving you time trying to find out what works best for you.’

HELPS YOU OVERCOME PLATEAUS

‘It’s easy to fall into the trap of doing the same thing day-in, day-out. A personal trainer can help you spot progress slowing down and know when it’s time to switch it up. They will bring variety to your workouts to continuall­y challenge your body.’
