You don’t know what you don’t know, so they say. We’d say that there’s a significant degree of truth to that statement, especially when applied to the world of exercise, weight lifting, and general fitness. As a team of personal trainers and fitness professionals, it can be somewhat frustrating to see how many people use unabashedly incorrect form when performing certain exercises (don’t get us started on the form we see people use while deadlifting).
That’s where a personal trainer, with years of training and experience, can come into play and make a serious difference. Not only does using proper weightlifting technique dramatically reduce your chances of injuring yourself while working out, but it’s crucial if you want your exercise to be effective. Our Warwick personal trainers will take the time to make sure you understand “the why” behind each exercise you are doing. We take a holistic, full-body approach to personal training, so we’ll leave no stone unturned when it comes to demonstrating proper form, putting together a tailored workout routine based on your personal goals, and help you with motivating yourself to be consistent with your fitness for a long time to come!
KEEP YOUR WORKOUTS FRESH
One highly underrated benefit of having a personal trainer is that they allow you to keep your fitness routine fresh. If left to your own devices, workouts tend to get fairly stale after a while — especially if you aren’t equipped with the knowledge of enough workouts for you to change it up often enough!
If you feel like your workouts are getting complacent, having a personal trainer means they’ll supply you with a diversity of exercises so that you won’t get bored. Not only does this variety help when you feel stuck in a mental rut, but the “muscle confusion” caused by changing up workout routines will help you achieve superior results. Doing the same five exercises three or four times a week is all well and good, but the odds are that varying your routine will help improve your overall fitness in terms of well-roundedness.
Look, just because we say that “fitness is a way of life,” it doesn’t mean that we aren’t human. We get that getting up an hour or two early to fit in your daily workout isn’t easy — especially if you are doing it every day and find yourself stretched for time (and sleep) in the first place.
It’s no secret that exercise isn’t fun all of the time, although we certainly do our best to create an energetic, motivating environment here at Pro Fitness RI. One of the best ways we can do that, however, is through our one-on-one personal training sessions.
Whatever your reason might be for lacking the motivation to be consistent in your workouts, having someone who can hold you accountable to your goals will certainly help most everyone. For our part at Pro Fitness RI, our personal trainers are passionate and caring; we want to see you succeed just as much as you do! We are in your corner, willing you on with our words and actions. If you are looking for that extra boost in motivation, you’ve found the answer with our Warwick personal training.
