Many of us are interested in health and fitness but either struggle to find the time to get to the gym, reach our target weight, or improve our strength. Put simply, nutrition and exercise are all there is to it but regularly working out and eating right is easier said than done, which means that some of us could benefit from personalised coaching from a personal trainer.
With that in mind, let's see how personal training can help, the challenges we face, and how to get a personal trainer in Cardiff.
Improved health and fitness can lead to a longer life and a higher quality of life, but that's not the only reason for it. You may also want to get fit to feel happier with your body, improve performance in a given sport, or just for the simple reason that when you get round to doing sports or exercising, you actually quite enjoy it and just need a little push to ensure you make a habit of it!
Huge strides have been made when it comes to personal fitness and nutrition and there's so much information out there that it can get a little confusing knowing exactly what you have to do to get the results you want. Personal trainers help their clients by putting together nutrition plans, workout schedules, and ensuring that they're doing exactly what they need to achieve their goals.
Personal training is also great for your motivation. In addition to knowing what you should be doing, it can be hugely beneficial just to have another person there with you when you exercise is the best way to ensure you remain motivated.
It's also useful having another person there for safety as when you're doing weight or strength training, it's a good idea to have someone spot you or just ensure that you won't injure yourself while exercising.
As we mentioned, improving your health and fitness is easy but it also isn't. For one, many of us struggle to find the time to exercise or go to the gym. Between work and family commitments, many of us struggle to fit gym sessions in and when we do, we may not be getting the most out of the time we spend exercising.
Fitness classes are a good option for those of us who want a structured experience when we exercise but these won't be tailored to you, your level, your strength, or your overall fitness. Similarly, you won't have somebody ensuring that you're doing it right at any given moment.
A personal trainer isn't free, though, and for a bespoke service that gets results, you'll need to pay for it. This is often the first barrier to entry for many of us. Even if we do find the time to exercise with a fitness coach, we also need to find the money to pay for it. You have to pay for the service and a gym membership if that's where you're going to have your sessions.
You can save money by having your classes in a public place like a park but Cardiff isn't famed for year-round sunshine so it's understandable if you want your classes to take place indoors.
If you've decided that personal training is for you, then you just need to contact some trainers, arrange your coaching, and start seeing results.
One of the best ways to find a personal trainer is through Superprof! You can search by subject, skill, and location on the website so you'll be able to quickly view the profiles of those offering coaching in Cardiff and around South Wales.
Many of the personal trainers and tutors on the website offer the first hour for free so you can try a few out before deciding on which instructor is right for you. While this hour probably won't be your typical session, it's a good opportunity to discuss your goals, how you'd like them to help you achieve them, your experience or relationship with exercising, how you like to train, and the finer details such as the cost, scheduling, and the logistics of your coaching.
There are three main ways personal trainers can offer sessions to clients on Superprof: face-to-face, online, and in groups. Each type of coaching has its pros and cons so you may want to consider what you want to achieve, your budget, and your schedule before choosing the appropriate personal trainers.
Face-to-face sessions are arguably the most effective as you'll have the personal trainer or instructor there with you providing support and tailored coaching for every minute of the session. Of course, this bespoke service (and the results that come with it) comes at a cost and face-to-face sessions are usually the most expensive.
For those on a budget, group sessions aren't as tailored and the coaching won't be planned with just you in, but you will be able to save money by sharing the cost of the session with other clients. In some cases, you may achieve better results with this type of session as a bit of friendly competition and camaraderie will drive everyone to work even harder. Of course, this isn't ideal if you prefer to train on your own or work best with direct support or guidance.
Finally, there's online personal training. If you've got a decent internet connection and a webcam, you can get coaching from trainers from anywhere in the world. While this isn't usually recommended for during your workouts or gym sessions, the additional support they provide can often be done online.
For example, an online personal trainer can go over your goals, put together nutrition and workout plans, leave you to do the workouts, and go back over the results with you. In this case, they'll be less hands-on and will act more as a personal training consultant to help you. This is usually a good option for those with experience in gyms or working out who need to take their training to the next level.
No matter what your objective is, whether you want to lose weight or just to improve your overall physical condition, your personal trainer will create your own fitness regime to help you achieve your personal fitness goals..
Personal training has a number of advantages including:
