In a previous life, I spent nearly every waking moment in a gym helping clients to get healthier. I was investing all of the energy and time I could muster up in order to help them lose weight and get their life back. Although they were paying money (and quite a bit of it), I would say that 90% of my clients weren’t putting forth the same amount of effort. They weren’t getting nearly the full amount out of their training sessions. That inspired me to write this post for DailyBurn. Here’s the intro:
Personal trainers offer a wealth of information ranging from topics like exercise technique and programming to healthy lifestyle choices (like not keeping Oreos in your pantry). That information appears to be valuable as 6.4 million Americans are working with a trainer. Still, 47 percent of clients only stick around for one to two years max. Since supervised workouts have been shown to boost results, why are so many people ditching their trainer so fast? Maybe it’s cost; personal training definitely isn’t cheap — ranging from $30 to $100 per hour on average. Or maybe it’s that most clients don’t see the value, or they don’t fully cash in on their paid workout sessions. To get the most out of your training sessions and truly “level up” on your fitness knowledge, don’t pay another cent before reading these four tips.
