3 Ways a Personal Trainer Can Help You Get Fit

Read Transcript

I am Dr. Mike Clark. If you are looking to shape up, working with a personal trainer can really help you. Here are three ways a fitness professional can help you reach your goals. First, there is education. Personal fitness trainers are very well versed in the science of human movement, as well as exercise techniques, program design, behaviour modification, and nutrition.

After a thorough assessment, a trainer can use this expertise to design an exercise program specific to your health and fitness goals. Second, is motivation. A professional trainer can help you clarify your health and fitness goals, and provide you with the necessary support that you need to stay motivated and on track with your program.

Finally, accountability. It's your trainer's job to hold you accountable and to help you set those goals. This is a especially helpful early on in your program, when your workouts and healthy eating habits are still new. A personal trainer can help you stay consistent so that you can see results sooner.
