3 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Personal Trainer
When it comes to choosing the right personal trainer in Vancouver, you should first think about what you actually need. What are your goals?
- Are you trying to lose weight?
- Do you want the “perfect beach body”?
- Do you have an injury and aren’t sure if you can even exercise?
- Are you new to exercise and are intimidated to even step foot into a gym?
- Do you have a chronic condition such as diabetes and know you need to exercise, but don’t know where to start?
- Do you have arthritis and aren’t sure if exercise is safe?
Once you know what your goals are, that will help narrow down your choices.
1. Personal Trainers can tailor workouts to your goals.
If you’re looking to lose weight and get toned, chances are you will find what you’re looking for at one of the many national chain gyms out there such as Steve Nash Fitness World. These gyms tend to be large, have a large variety of machines and heavy equipment to get the job done. Additionally, you’ll have a nice crowd of people to exercise with who have similar goals in mind.
2. They’re knowledgeable and can work around any medical conditions or injuries you may have
However, if you’ve got a more complex medical history or are unsure if you’re able to start personal training, you may want to consider a knowledgeable personal trainer who has experience and education working with your unique situation. At Westcoast SCI Physiotherapy, our personal trainers all have a degree in kinesiology and have completed specialized courses, so they have more knowledge in the realm of injuries and medical conditions to be able to create an exercise program more suited to your needs.
3. Your sessions will be in a private studio
If you feel intimidated exercising in front of others like in a usual gym setting, a kinesiologist will likely be working in a private studio. They would also be more adept to work with someone who is intimidated by a large public gym setting. For someone who has never stepped foot into a gym, working with a registered kinesiologist in a private studio can feel like more of a “safe” environment to get started.
Our personal trainers at Westcoast SCI work in our private gym space where you won’t be competing for equipment and space with other people exercising. Your personal trainer will also spend the whole duration of your session with you one-on-one.
