How Can A Personal Trainer Help You?

Hello Everyone, and Welcome to my blog!

This month’s topic is about what I do as a personal trainer and how I can help You achieve your fitness goal and improve your health and life style.

I have met many people who showed concern and inquired about personal training, so I chose to talk about the benefit of hiring a personal trainer for two reasons:
1- To help people understand the purpose of training with a specialist and how they both contribute to achieving the best results.
2- To answer those interested but hesitant, and maybe help them find their reason to hiring a trainer.

As you will read below, I will further elaborate How a Personal Trainer can help you:

Motivation: we all try to avoid hiring a trainer, so we chose to do it on our own. We start motivated for the first few weeks, we hit the Gym and we train regularly. However, gradually we become discouraged especially when we stop seeing results and we get bored with the workout routines and then we quit. I bet we have all lived this scenario.
A personal trainer on the other hand will motivate you on your setbacks and help you pick up again. Also, he will mix and match workouts to always renew the routine and involve fun in it to boost your energy level and motivation. He will give you all the support and encouragement needed. He is dedicated to making you fitter, better and healthier, simply because your success, means his success as a personal trainer.

Consistency: Another benefit earned when hiring a personal trainer. Consistency is the key to progress in your fitness program. As we said earlier, sometimes we might aim too high and sometimes too low, and that will cause us to fail our plan. Success won’t just happen overnight and requires dedication and hard work.
The personal trainer will help you stay committed, focused on the routine and on the path of achieving your goal. The trainer won’t accept excuses and will help you set the right mindset and the right expectations.

Individual instruction: one of the best aspects for hiring a personal trainer is that he/she tailors a workout routine specifically for You. That is why it is always important to share your fitness goal, weakness, strength, or any information with your trainer.
Professional trainers will usually assess your fitness level prior to choosing your routines; they might also require a body composition test and will calculate your BMI. Accordingly the trainer will design the workout plan to meet your goal and to be suitable for your physical condition.

Effective workouts: We go to the gym, looking to lose weight, thinking the more time we spend on the treadmill the more weight we will lose. The truth is that we might be working the wrong muscle, or repeating the wrong exercise and wasting time with no actual benefit.
Quality matters. Although your workout frequency should be consistent and increasing over time, your workout session might not exceed the period of one hour. The reason is that with a tailored routine, you will do the right moves and you will achieve your goal, whether its weight loss, fitness training, or body building. Effective workouts will save you time and give you all the benefits.

Supervision:  designing the workout, doing the workout and then supervising the routine. The personal trainer will make sure you are doing the moves, the postures and the breathing technique right. All these details affect your body. The trainer will go through every move and will guide you with the exercises. This benefit will make you work the right muscle and will also help you prevent injury.

Evaluation: the scale is always a good indication in case of weight loss. It’s true. But your body measures, your fitness progress and your muscle toning need tracking, and your personal trainer is the one for the job. He is there to track your development from day one.
However, you must keep in mind that fitness goes hand in hand with your food diet. You should eat healthy and avoid unhealthy foods and eating habits. Also, you must reduce your alcohol intake and follow your trainers instruction for your own sake.

Personal trainers will help you a lot; they are the experts that will support you all the way towards your goal.  He is very knowledgeable of the body functions and fitness, and is an added value for an enhanced life style and a healthier body. However, the relationship evolves over time to form a team where they work together to attain their goal.  It takes will and dedication to make it work. Still have any doubts?

My New Year’s Resolution: Get Fit

Hello Everyone, and welcome to my blog!
Merry Christmas & Happy 2019! May all your days be blessed with joy, peace and health.
I am so excited about the coming year and allow me to thank you for your support throughout this amazing 2018, it`s been a great success!
I take it  from here to discuss with you “New Years Resolution”!
The best part about new year is the hope it inspires. It is a new beginning, we put the past behind us and we start over!
We are full of hope and determination! We hope our lives change for the best, we hope to make a dream come true and we hope we become a better version of ourselves, maybe get fit, lose weight, improve our health, etc…  However, to make it happen we have to work for it.
I think most of us, including myself, always worked out the same plan. We wrote down our list of decisions and appointed January 1st our start date. Of course, we were fully drunk and tired from new years eve, so the first day doesn’t count, and so does the first week. We start postponing and it hits us along the way, and then we realize we re too lazy or too late. The enthusiasm is gone.
As you read below, I will give you few tips which I believe will help you stick to your health and fitness resolutions and make them happen:
1- “Begin with the end in mind”. They say that vision is the key to any success, and I couldn’t agree more! We must visualize ourselves in the perfect Job, perfect Body, our dream car … That image in our head will help us build and improve ourselves to  become that person eventually . This is our inner motivation that helps us rise up again every time we fail .
2- Set realistic goals. Dream Big, but also dream smart. A high percentage of failures  happen when we set unreachable objectives. A good way to do so is to divide your big goals into small ones, for example if you wish to get the six-packs, aim first to losing the additional weight, losing the fat, training and eventually the six packs.
3- Start immediately and make it a habit.  Your Habits will form your destiny. One of the biggest mistakes that keep us from achieving our dreams is our habit of postponing and delaying. Commit yourself to working out until it becomes a habit. Later, When your health improves, fitness will become  part of your life style, and you will actually try to influence those around you to do the same.   
4- Prioritize and simplify. You don`t need a billion goal. It is the quality that matters. Set few important goals, and arrange them by priority, and then hit it off. As many goals may be connected, start with the most important and the rest will follow gradually. This way you could stay in control of managing your list of resolutions if you need to modify it.
5- Do not compare. You don’t know what others had to do to get there. Since every one of us has a unique story, try to stay focused on yours. Do not allow negative people to influence you, whether they failed or succeeded, let your inner motivation and purpose be your guide.
6- Stay positive. As the year goes by, We might feel demotivated at times, frustrated with negative thoughts and setbacks. It is very important to stay optimistic and patient. Remember, every small step in the right direction is a step towards success. When it comes to improving your health and getting fit, you must realize that it is a process and it doesn’t happen overnight.
7- Hire a professional. Earlier, I wrote about the benefit of hiring a personal trainer. One of the benefits was consistency. When dealing with a professional you will be able to see results faster and feel more committed, motivated and dedicated. The trainer will be able to track your performance and guide you to the best practices to improving your health and losing weight.
