Working with a personal trainer is a great way to maximize a workout and make the most of your time at the gym. This one-on-one workout will not only help you learn proper form and targeted exercises but also provides motivation and someone to keep you accountable. If you’ve never had a personal training session, here are some general guidelines on what you can expect from your first appointment.
- Good Fatigue: If you’ve not spent much time in the gym before your personal training session, you’ll likely feel tired after your first workout. Instead of feeling nervous about the fatigue, think of it as a sign of how hard you worked. The fatigue indicates that you are on the right path toward your fitness goals.
- Targeted Workouts and Goals: Once your personal trainer works through a fitness circuit with you, you may feel sore in muscles you did not know you had. A personal trainer helps you target muscles that are underdeveloped and target the workout to your fitness goals. You will probably be sore after your first session, but it is a sign that you are improving strength and stamina.
- Motivation to Work Hard: Finding the motivation to work out or reach a target weight can be a challenge, even for people who exercise regularly. With a personal trainer, you have someone who works with and motivates you to keep working hard. Plus, once you notice the results of your hard work, you’ll likely be more excited to continue exercising and achieving your goals.
