While there are many exercise programs and diets available, they may not be able to give you the sustainable, long-term results you want.

6 Things Your Fitness Trainer Wishes You Knew

Whether you’re trying to live a healthier lifestyle, or you’re trying to shed some pounds. Having a team and community supporting you is key to your success. One of the big players on that team is often your fitness trainer. They can be a great source of knowledge, support, and guidance.

However, before you begin working with a personal trainer, here are 6 things you should know:

  1. Be clear on what you want. Before getting down to the nitty gritty of your program, make sure you understand exactly what you’re working towards. We all want a beautiful figure, but what does that mean to you? Does it mean losing ten pounds or feeling confident enough to wear the dress you’ve recently bought? Whatever it is, your journey must start with knowing what you’re hoping to achieve and getting your mind right to work hard for them.
  1. Be honest with your fitness trainer. You must be clear and honest about your goals with your trainer. In addition, you must tell them everything they need to know about your lifestyle and training history. This will help them tailor a workout program that will help you achieve your goals, but in a safe and low-risk way.
  1. There is more than one way to get fit. We live in a world full of options, and when it comes to fitness, this can be a very good thing. If you find yourself easily bored by the treadmill or elliptical, then you’re in luck! There are so many different ways to become fit and what works for one person may not work for you. Your fitness trainer can spend some time with you to find out what works for your specific needs and preferences.
  1. This will not be an overnight fix. In the era of social media and smartphones, we are so used to getting things immediately, but that isn’t how fitness works. It is not an overnight fix so you have to give your program time to work! Stay committed and have fun. If you’re finding that you’re getting bored, talk to your fitness trainer about changing up your exercises. (Tips For Achieving Your Weight Loss Goals)
  1. Be mindful of your form. Good form is extremely important - in fact it’s more important than quantity or speed. By asking your trainer for help on your form or on performing certain exercises, you’ll prevent yourself from getting injured and you’ll ensure that all your muscles are activated properly.
  1. You can’t out exercise a bad diet. While you should never deprive yourself or feel guilty about an occasional treat, you really can't out-exercise a bad diet. You can’t have wine, pasta, cookies, or chocolates every night and hope to achieve your weight loss goals. It’s important to talk to your fitness trainer about setting up a customized nutrition plan that fits your lifestyle, so you’ll be more likely to stay on track.
