10 Reasons to Hire a Fitness Coach
Why Hire a Fitness Coach
There are a number of reasons people work with a Fitness Coach. Some want an individualized program so they can lose weight or get in shape, others simply need to be held accountable for their workouts, and then there are those who need help training for a specific event. Wherever you are in your exercise journey, a Fitness Coach may be just what you need to take it to the next level.
1. You are NOT Seeing Results
If you’ve been exercising consistently for weeks or months and are not losing weight or reaching your goals, hiring a Fitness Coach may be a good choice. A coach can look at your current program and eating habits and help you see where you could make changes to create more effective workouts. A coach can help you set goals, hold you accountable for your workouts, and help you stay motivated to reach your goals.
2. You don’t know Where to Start
Knowing how to set up a complete exercise schedule that includes all the activities you need: cardio, weight training, and flexibility – can be overwhelming. Add the time and knowledge it takes to choose exercises, weights, reps and sets, and you may quit before you even start.
A Fitness Coach can help you maximize your time, help you set goals, and map out a specific schedule so you know when, how and where you’ll fit in your workouts.
3. You are Bored with the Same Old Workouts
If you’re an experienced exerciser, maybe you haven’t considered working with a Fitness Coach. However, it can be a great choice if you need some variety in your workouts. A coach can bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to challenge both your body and your mind. Even if you just do a few sessions or meet every few weeks, you’ll find it refreshing to have new workouts and new exercise toys to play with.
A coach can also introduce new ways to exercise – TRX training, different methods of strength training and different types of equipment you’ve never tried before.
4. You Need to Be Challenged
If you’re like most, you tend to slack off on your workouts sometimes, especially when things get tough. A coach can motivate you to push past those self-imposed limits, encouraging you to lift heavier, go longer and challenge yourself more than you would on your own. You’ll find it’s very hard to slack off with a coach motivating you to do just…one…more…rep! You may even find hidden strengths you never knew you had, which can motivate you even more.
5. You Want to Learn How to Exercise on your Own
Even if your goal is to create your own workouts and exercise by yourself, hiring a coach for a few sessions can be a great benefit for learning the right way to exercise. This is especially true if you want to learn more about the muscles in your body, the exercises that target those muscles and how to do those exercises with great form. Just a few sessions can teach you a lot about your body, how it works, and how to train it in the most effective way.
6. You Need Accountability and Motivation
A Fitness Coach comes with built-in motivation. Not only are you investing money into your exercise program…you’re investing time as well. There’s nothing like a standing appointment to get your butt in gear for a workout. Not only that, a coach provides some accountability so, even when you don’t have a session, you know your coach will be asking if you did your planned workouts. Just knowing that may make it harder to skip your workouts...
7. You Have a Specific Illness, Injury or Condition
If you have any specific issues like arthritis, heart disease, old injuries, etc., working with an experienced Fitness Coach (who works with your doctor, of course) can help you find a program to help heal injuries and avoid any further problems. It’s also a great idea to work with a coach if you’re pregnant or trying to get pregnant and want a safe, effective workout to keep you healthy and fit.
8. You are Training for a Sport or Event
If you’re training for a cycling event, marathon, or some other type of event, an experienced Fitness Coach can help you figure out what you need to do to stay strong without taking away from your other training. They can also help create a training program and map out a plan for the coming event.
9. You Want to Workout at Home
If you’d like to exercise at home but either don’t have a lot of equipment or aren’t sure how to use what you have, learning about in-house coach is an excellent choice.
What is the difference between a Personal Trainer and a Fitness Coach? As far as we are concerned the two titles are interchangeable. A Fitness Coach works with client who do NOT necessarily need the 1-on-1 training, clients who like to train on their schedules but sometimes need a push in another direction or they need to change the plan because they have hit the wall. That is where a fitness coach fits in.
A fitness coach will supply you with a fitness prescription via the phone, text or email. When you have a question, you simply contact the coach and ask the question. They will either phone you, texted you or email you with the answer. Fitness Coaches from time to time we will check in on you to see how the program is going and will be there to keep you motivated. For the cost of 1 session with a personal trainer, a fitness coach can provide you with an entire month of fitness resources.
