Remaining healthy and fit is the objective for most of us.. After being under lockdown for the past number of months however, many of us have noticed our fitness levels fall off and have gained a few extra pounds after the extra Netflix binging and working from home. Keeping fit and healthy was the first resolution many of us made this year but unfortunately, realizing these goals has been a bit of a nightmare due to Covid.

Now that studios have begun to open up, regular exercise can help you relax and strengthen your body and recruiting a personal trainer from a company like Anytime Fitness – Old Strathcona can help you stick to your schedule and enhance your workouts safely. They offer 7 day a week programming with your coach and in person sessions in a semi private atmosphere to make it more economically viable for many people with sessions as low as $40. 

But why do you need one? Here are the 4 reasons why a personal trainer is important:

They boost your morale and motivation

Achieving any goal or objective is not an easy triumph. Without someone giving you a reason to stay focused, it is easy to give up. When it comes to working out, this is no different. For you to accomplish your workout objectives, you need someone to motivate you and boost your morale. Motivation is especially important when your expected results are taking longer to show up. A personal trainer can help in such a situation. Your trainer has a deep understanding of your goals, hence, they can offer the best advice to ensure you remain on the journey until you see the desired results.

Anytime Fitness trainers develop programs specific to their clients goals. All programming is done based off the results of a Functional Movement Screen. Through a short survey, conversation and a movement assessment, your trainer will prescribe the best program to get you started and on track to meet your fitness goals. Individualized programming follows proper periodization to help you achieve the best results.

You enhance your safety

Exercises can come with some high-risk possibilities. If you’re not careful, you can sustain a handful of injuries and perhaps this is the reason you’ve never realized your goals – fearing injuries. Having a personal trainer is the safest bet for avoiding injuries in your exercise routine. The trainer has experience building your type of workout routine customized to your goals and ability. They know the safest approach that can reduce the potential for injuries to occur and depending on your abilities, they can recommend which workout is appropriate, and which is not.

As well, with new Covid-19 sanitation requirements, your health is of utmost importance. Anytime Fitness has stepped up their already high level cleaning practices offering personal hand sanitizer to clients as well as sanitation stations throughout the space. Distancing of equipment and limits on numbers in fitness classes allows members to continue with their fitness routine while remaining healthy and safe.

Opportunity for professional exercise instructions

Are you looking for professional guidance? As you know, you can’t achieve your objectives without an understanding of the best strategy. Planning a proper fitness routine can be a challenge for most as there are so many exercises to choose from and it can be hard to reach your fitness goals without proper instruction.

Hiring a personal trainer from Anytime Fitness offers you an opportunity to enjoy professional instruction. Your trainer will oversee your sessions and recommend the best workouts with the best benefits for your health to allow you to accomplish your goals. In person sessions are fully individualized, but done in a semi-private setting to make it more affordable. Clients can commit to 1, 2 or 3 times per week receiving workout programs for every day they are in the gym and not just when seeing their trainer. Online and nutritional support is also available including virtual classes to do from home if your schedule is a bit busy and you’re not able to make it in to the gym.

Advice on managing pain

While you love exercising, you might have chronic pain problems that keep you from achieving your best results. With a personal trainer, exercising becomes a seamless part of your daily routine. They can offer advice on how to manage pain and ensure your body remains fit.. They can also recommend the preferable workout that is safe for you.
