When it comes to your fitness, there are few better methods than personal training. After all, everyone is different and not every class in your gym will provide you with the results you're after.
While gym sessions can be helpful, personal training is exactly that, personal. You can ensure that your trainer is spending all their time focusing on you and helping you to achieve your fitness goals and get results.
With that in mind, let's have a look at the benefits of personal training, the challenges you may face, and how to find the right personal trainer in Sheffield and South Yorkshire.
While you may find the term "personal trainer" to be quite self-explanatory, they do far more than bark orders at you whilst you're working out.
Your personal trainer can help you with your training in the gym by putting together a programme for you to follow with exercises and activities tailored to you, your health and fitness, and fitness goals.
Their work doesn't stop once you've hit the showers, either. Many personal trainers can help you with weight loss and diet, too, and will help you to plan meals and provide nutrition advice to ensure that you're getting the most out of the work done in and out of the gym.
Beyond planning how you spend your time in the gym and telling you what to eat, one of the biggest benefits of personal training is having someone with you to provide motivation and support. After all, you could technically put together a gym routine, fitness plan, and diet without a personal trainer, but unless you've got the steeliest of resolves, it can be tough picking yourself back up after a setback, for example.
Much like how coaches have to ensure that players' morale stays high, personal trainers have to ensure that you're motivated enough to stick to their plan because even the best workout routines and diet plans will fail if you can't be bothered to follow them!
Personal training is tough and anyone who's decided to hire a personal trainer should be acutely aware that even if your fitness goals don't seem that outlandish, you will still face several challenges.
It may seem obvious, but personal training only works when you actually do your training and you can only get the best results if you do training every time you're supposed to. Sadly, for many of us, we just don't have the time.
It's very easy to tell people that they have to time for their health and fitness but this ignores factors outside of our control such as family and work commitments that can pop up at any time and scupper our best plans to work out.
Those with particularly young children, for example, may struggle to find the time to sleep, let alone put in some time at the gym or work out at home. Of course, some personal trainers will understand this and may give you short exercises that you can do whenever you find yourself with minutes to spare but it still doesn't mean it's easy, you have to want to do it.
Then there's the financial aspect. If you can find the time for personal training and taking care of your health and fitness, you may not be able to find the money to pay for it. In addition to paying for a personal trainer, you may also need to pay for a gym membership, appropriate clothing, the right food, etc.
None of these things is particularly cheap and while they don't need to be outlandishly expensive, you still need to pay for them and these costs can add up over time. After all, most of these expenditures are recurring payments rather than a one-off payment so it's not just a case of finding the money but rather a case of changing your whole budget to accommodate personal training and all that comes with it.
Finally, as we mentioned, there's the issue of motivation. Your personal trainer will do their utmost to keep you motivated as it's also in their best interest to keep you on as a client. However, you can't expect them to do all the work and achieving your fitness goals requires commitment and motivation from you, too.
Set yourself reasonable fitness goals and make sure that you're motivated and committed before you start paying for personal training, gym memberships, and a load of sportswear.
If you've decided that personal training is what you're after, then look no further than the Superprof website! A quick search and you can find a load of personal trainers working in Sheffield and South Yorkshire.
On the website, you can compare different personal trainers, their rates, and their experience, see what their other clients had to say about them, and check to see if they offer the first session for free.
A lot of the personal trainers and tutors on Superprof offer the first hour for free and you should contact a few different ones, make the most of these free sessions, and try out a few different personal trainers before deciding which one's right for you.
If none of the personal trainers in Sheffield is to your liking, you can always broaden your search to include all of South Yorkshire and beyond. Many personal trainers are self-employed and quite used to travelling from client to client so this mightn't be a problem. However, some will schedule all their classes in a given gym and expect you to come to them.
For those on a budget, you might want to consider getting group sessions from your personal trainer. If you and a few friends, colleagues, or family members are looking to get into shape, lose weight, or achieve your fitness goals, discuss the possibility of group sessions or boot camps with your personal trainer as this may be a way to share the cost of their time amongst all the participants.
