Have you ever joined a gym and been given a weights program by one of the gym instructors and then given a quick demonstration on how to use the equipment and what the exercises are?
They make it look so easy so, you think - yeah - I've got this and you leave the gym feeling motivated and enthusiastic.
Next time you go into the gym (still feeling motivated but a little intimidated) you look at your program, you look at the gym floor and recognise .... nothing ... so head for the safety of the cardio equipment.
Pretty normal story for many people. So when we read these articles about people just doing cardio at the gym is not necessarily because they don't want to do weights but rather that they don't know how.
Employing a personal trainer to show you how to use the exercise equipment correctly is an investment in your future. As a trainer, I can:
Provide you with a personalised training program;
Teach you how to use the gym equipment correctly (so as to avoid injury and embarrassment)
Explain what muscles (in easy to understand terms) you are using when doing your exercises;
Show you alternatives if necessary; and
Keep you motivated;
"What seems impossible today
will one day become your warm up"
It is not the achievement of the goal that is your purpose - its the person you become so that you can achieve that goal that determines the quality of your life
