The Pros & Cons of Hiring a Personal Trainer

The weather is changing and we’re almost to the most wonderful time of the year – which also happens to be the most fattening time of the year. Is this getting you thinking about doing something to stave off weight gain? With everything that you’re already doing and all of the increased activity that the holiday season brings, the real question is, will you have time to get/stay fit? Maybe joining a gym isn’t the answer (neither is slogging through with workout DVDs). Maybe hiring a personal trainer is the real solution, but you don’t have enough info to get you started. We’re here to help! At EFS, we offer an at-home personal training solution that might fit perfectly for you and your schedule. There are both advantages and disadvantages to hiring an at-home personal trainer. Weigh the pros and cons to decide if this is a good option for you.

Pro: Customized Training

Our personal trainers will develop a fitness plan and regime based on your goals, body type, ability and interests. If you have an illness or injury, your personal trainer will take that into account. We are experts at devising tailored regimes that methodically improve your health and physical condition. We work with you to create a program that helps you get noticeable results. Your trainer will also steer you away from the common mistakes that often hinder weight loss results.

Pro: Enthusiasm for Working Out

A lot of people buy gym memberships, but very few members actually use them. It’s easy to lose motivation after just a week or two of working out. When you hire a personal trainer, though, you’ll have much less of an issue with motivation and sticking to your workouts. Our trainers hold you accountable for sticking to the plan. They’re there to cheer you on through your workout, even when you’re struggling with it. Plus, since personal training costs money, you won’t want to waste your hard earned cash, the investment increases your likelihood of success.

Cons: Time and Money

Investing time and money into your health and fitness can feel daunting. We understand that, but with at-home personal training, we work with you to make the time and money well spent. We come to you and work completely within your schedule for training. For time strapped professionals, this is a massive bonus. Working on your health and fitness does take time, but it doesn’t have to take up time you don’t have or aren’t ready to give.

Personal trainers can be expensive, when compared to a gym membership or workout DVDs. But, is your health and fitness a place where you want to skimp and save? Experience tells us that, when it comes to fitness, you get what you pay for. And, as mentioned, making the investment actually helps you develop a higher level of accountability. If your fitness or weight loss goals are important to you, the price is small in comparison to the payoff.

If you’re looking to lose weight, get in shape, or simply start feeling better at yourself, consider hiring a personal trainer. They have the expertise and background that you need to get on the right track. When it comes to something as important as your health, you should put yourself in the hands of a professional.
