Going to the gym isn’t easy by yourself. For many of us it becomes a mental battle to either get out of bed an hour early and hit the gym or a battle to resist the temptation of skipping the gym and going home to the couch at the end of a long day at work. With a Personal Trainer the mental battle becomes a little more one sided in favour of the exercise enthusiast inside you! If you’ve booked an appointment, and you’ve committed to turning up, your behaviour tends to follow your intentions! So just simply booking a Personal Trainer can be enough to motivate you into showing up, and once you’re in the gym, no matter how slow you go, you are still lapping those people at home on the couch!
GYMNATION offers our members a network of some of the best Personal Trainers across Dubai. Each of our Personal Trainers has their own area of specialism, from weight loss and toning up, through to boxing and bodybuilding. Whatever you are after please speak to a member of our team and we will put you in touch with a Personal Trainer who is best suited to helping you reach your fitness goals.
It start's making sense!
There’s nothing worse than going through that mental battle, putting your gym kit on, going down to the gym floor and suddenly that horrible realisation dawns on you and you say to yourself ‘I don’t know what I’m doing!’. This is where Personal Trainers step in. A good PT will have your session planned out for you, and it won’t be any old plan that they’ve found off the internet, it will be an exercise plan that is tailored towards your fitness goals!
The research is taken care of!
If you’re into health and fitness, and we assume you are as otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this, you’ve probably been exposed to a wealth of knowledge from all different types of sources over the years. What you read in Women’s Magazine, may very much conflict with the latest thing Michelle Lewin is telling you on her snapchat! The job of a Personal Trainer is to stay on top of all these latest trends and decide which ones are right and relevant for you! It’s a confusing world out there, we just don’t know if High Intensity Interval Training always trumps Low Intensity Steady State Cardio at all times of day, so let your PT decide! You just show up and do what you’re told ;)
Support you all the way!
A Personal Trainer will push you to your limits you are comfortable with, and will only ever view your training sessions in a non-judgemental, supportive manner!
Correct your form!
It’s not about counting the amount of weight you lift, it’s about making the amount of weight you lift count! Form is really important, incorrect form puts you at risk of getting injured, and worse still- can even inhibit your progress in making progress. Youtube videos may well offer good form tips, but where a Personal Trainer really comes in handy is that they can give you that feedback while you are performing the exercise, and make noticeable adjustments to your technique. It’s not just the lifting form either that Personal Trainers can help you with, they can help you with your running form, your body-weight exercise form and even your ‘mind body connection’!
Be better at your sport, life and everything!
Lots of people hit the gym for a reason, there’s a fair few out there who are actual athletes and train for their chosen sport. ‘Bravo’ if you are one of those truly dedicated souls who use the gym to improve your sports performance! But if you’re doing this without a Personal Trainer, you’re surely missing a trick? A Personal Trainer will be able to choose the appropriate exercises for you that will improve key skills required for your sport. If you’re looking to improve Speed, Quickness and Agility and Personal Trainer will have an array of exercises and tests designed to help you. If you are more concerned with getting your balance and coordination right, again a Personal Trainer will have a whole host of exercises in their locker to assist you in this!
Whatever it is you’re looking to achieve, a Personal Trainer can make you better!
Do more in less time!
When you’re training by yourself, even if you have a concrete plan in mind, it can be hard to say to yourself- ‘time to take this stuff to the next level’ and then follow that up with doing 30 burpees then 20 leg raises until failure! You would have to be highly motivated and very strong-willed to do this. A Personal Trainer on the other hand, will turn your workout up a gear or two! With exercising at a much higher intensity, you’ll burn more calories in a shorter space of time.
If you’re goal is weight loss, or to get lean muscle- a calorie busting workout is your best friend, so again a PT might be just what you need to progress!
Eat Clean Train Dirty!
It’s not just while you’re on the treadmill or while you’re stood in the Squat Rack that a Personal Trainer can have a positive impact in the way you go about reaching fitness goals. Many experts contend that to get the ideal body it’s all about 20% training, 80% diet! Whether that’s right or not, a Personal Trainer can certainly help you track your nutrition and assist you in the kitchen as well on the gym floor!
A good Personal Trainer will offer a diet plan and a platform to monitor your carbs, protein and fat intake.
It’s All About Results!
With a Personal Trainer, you will stay at the gym for longer for 2 reasons. Firstly you’ll be more motivated to show up but secondly, with expert advice coming your way, a great deal of support and a better lifestyle approach you’re going to see RESULTS!
We don’t leave gyms when we see progress, so with the right person by your side, you’ll be a happier member of GYMNATION for longer!
