One of my clients told me about a comment she received, when she told a friend she has been working out with a trainer for a year. As a kid I was always told "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. Obviously this person did not follow this rule, she told my client that she has not seen any change in her over the year. Since she didn't follow the rule, I need to comment on this. Besides it gave me a great think to blog about. Thank-You.
There are many reason to work out with a personal trainer, and not all of them are VISIBLE TO THE EYE. I am finding out that one of the most important reasons to work out with a trainer is, you are held accountable to attend your work outs. If you join a large gym and decide to miss a work out, who cares? If you do not show up to my boot camp or personal training session, at least you will have to come up with an excuse. By the way this week the number one excuse was " I have to take my dog to the vet" heard it twice, and maybe its true but thought I would share.
Another reason, NOT VISIBLE OT THE EYE, you will fight off osteoporosis. The key to this one is consistency. Strength training over time maintains bone mass, especially in post-menopausal women. You can not see Osteoporosis but it does effect a lot of women.
You will feel Empowered! Lifting weights comes with a big self-esteem boost. Empowerment is not something the EYE can see.
Prevent Injuries. Build up muscle around your joints, and you will help prevent injuries. If you are not injured your EYE can not see this. Break a leg or hip and we can all see that.
Carrying a baby on your hip, carrying groceries into the house, walking up steps, the list goes on and on...all of these chores become easier to us, even though the EYE can not see this.
Some people just don't get it, but they will, and hopefully it's not to late!
