There was a time when a lot of people I knew thought of personal trainers as a passing fad of Hollywood celebrities. It’s understandable that actors like Sylvester Stallone, Kim Kardashian, and Halle Berry would need their own personal trainer for their fitness needs, since their appearance is a crucial aspect of their careers. But for most ordinary people, there’s no real need for a personal trainer—or is there?
Today, many people are beginning to realize just how useful these professionals can be for their personal training.
• You get your facts straight. The trouble with relying on the Internet is that there’s too much information available, and often you get contradictory advice. But by having your own personal trainer, you only need to listen to one authoritative voice. I’m a personal trainer Singapore based, and I can get you the facts you need to know. I’ll tell you what exercises you need to do, how to use exercise equipment properly, and what foods to eat to supplement your workouts.
• Your training regimen is customized. I’ve always wondered how people can follow generic advice and expect the best results. Generic advice is like buying clothes off the rack—it doesn’t really fit you perfectly. You have to take it to a tailor so that you can get it to fit your measurements. It’s the same thing with training. You’re different from others, so your exercise regimen has to be customized for you. And it also has to be tailored to fit your goals, whether you want to lose weight or to build muscle.
• You don’t waste time. It’s remotely possible that you can learn what you need to know on your own, but that’s not exactly a productive and efficient use of your time. By employing a professional to assist you with your training, you tap the knowledge a professional trainer has amassed through years of training and experience. You’ll also find out what you need to do, and that will give you the most effective results in the shortest time possible.
• You get the proper motivation. A lot of people, I’ve discovered, find personal trainers useful for their ability to provide encouragement. Many people quit when they have no one to account to. People will easily find reasons to quit, such as it’s too difficult, it’s too time-consuming, it’s too expensive, it’s not working, etc. But with a fitness professional involved, quitting becomes much harder to do. A trainer can provide helpful and encouraging words to get you to persist and continue when you think you can’t go on. With a professional trainer, you can understand how much improvement you’re actually achieving. You know that you’re not alone, and that in itself is a great way to encourage you to keep going.
So if you are really serious about being fit for whatever reasons, then it’s time for you to find a personal trainer in Singapore who can really help you achieve your goals. Trust me on this one: it’s not really all that expensive, because what you gain is much more valuable than what you spend.
