TPB Fitness Series: Why Moms Should Consider Hiring a Personal Trainer
In the past few months I have upped my fitness game, and I have Irina from Tone Every Zone to thank for helping inspire me to finally stop making excuses and actually get on it. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t always fit a workout in and when I do I’m aware that there are so many other things that need doing. But this is what I’m starting to accept: so what??? I haven’t felt this good in years and it’s made me feel better mentally and physically. Taking a few minutes when I have the chance might not sound like much, but it has made a difference. And I’m excited to be back in the pool after years away, swimming laps and remembering how good it feels when you make time for your health. Plus after a week or two, it really becomes easier to make it a part of your routine.
This fitness series with Irina has been a project I’ve enjoyed and I hope you’ve found it helpful as well. For her last post in this 6- part series, Irina is sharing about how a fitness trainer can help you make time for exercise and the benefits of working with one. And before you finish the thought ‘it’s not in the budget’, it’s surprisingly more affordable than you might think and if you need that little extra help and motivation to keep you on track, isn’t it worth it? I think of it as investing in yourself and really, isn’t that what you’re doing? Thanks Irina for this amazing series, it’s been a good one; one that’s impacted more than I could have anticipated. See below for Irina’s final post.
Out of all the clients I see on a regular basis, moms resonate with me the most. They are one of the groups who is the most motivated to succeed but often fall short of their goals. As a mom I totally get it: kids, house chores, meal prep and that never ending pile of laundry, all make it so that fitness is last on the to-do list. A personal trainer can’t take the chores away, but here are some of the ways in which we can help!
You do personalized workouts that get you results faster
Doing random exercises in the hope they give you results will take you nowhere fast, not to mention they will get you extremely frustrated. To get results you need to work at the right intensity and do the right exercises in the right order. A few sessions with a trainer will ensure that you do just that as we will select the routine and intensity that will give you the most bang for your buck while taking into account your goals. Personalized workouts are the best way to go!
You avoid injury
When you are exercising incorrectly you are just setting yourself up to get injured. And that totally sucks. Personal trainers don’t just sit around and count reps. We show you proper technique, we correct your form and we also modify an exercise if we see you struggling with it. You don’t get that from YouTube or even a class at the gym.
You have the support and motivation you need to succeed
When it comes to exercising, I often found the hardest part was getting my butt off the couch. Scheduling your sessions with a trainer ensures that you show up and actually do your workouts! You also have a shoulder to lean on now – your trainer will listen and encourage you to keep going even during those moments when it’s easier to quit. Moral support is incredibly important throughout your fitness journey.
You rely on expert knowledge
Your trainer is the ultimate knowledge source when it comes to fitness so go ahead and ask them your burning questions! I looove to teach my clients about fitness, explain why we are doing certain exercises and share my insights with them because ultimately I want them to take control of their own fitness.
The workouts come to you
Getting out of the house to hit the gym or a class is completely overrated – and super time consuming. When you factor in the time needed to get there, changing and showering afterwards your 1hr workout turns into 2hrs. A busy mom ain’t got time for that!
So why not get the gym to come to you? Hiring a mobile personal trainer will help you save time, as well as money on gym memberships and gas. You are working your butt off out in the privacy of your home – how awesome is that? As a bonus, you no longer need to smell someone else’s body odour either!
If you haven’t considered hiring a personal trainer – why not? They are fitness experts who can help you reach your fitness goals faster, share their knowledge, help you get the most out of your training and some (like myself!) even come to you, helping you save time and money!
