Learn why high pressure workers benefit from personal training
For those in high pressure high stress occupations time is always a problem. Not enough time to eat healthily, not enough time to exercise, not enough time to get your work done… the list continues. We are going to lay out why it is so important to make time for some things and the benefits to you both physically and mentally.
Strength training releases endorphins during and after you exercise similar to a runner’s high, but much fiercer.
Most of us work harder in the presence of others. Having a trainer by your side can provide the encouragement, energy and motivation you need to jumpstart your routine. A trainer can also help you set goals, create a plan to accomplish them and celebrate the day you reach them.
Strength training helps you achieve the most drastic and measurable results, helping to attain improved body image, self-perception and sense of accomplishment. You’ll be proud of your progress AND you’ll impress your friends. Win Win!!
Do you find it difficult to stick with a program or habit? A trainer can hold you accountable and help you overcome all the excuses you might use to avoid your commitment to exercise. It’s a lot harder to skip the gym when you know someone is waiting for you.
A strength training lifestyle encourages you to dedicate yourself in many areas, such as nutrition and time-management. This sense of dedication and focus transfers into all aspects of your life, including your personal relationships. Strengthen your body; strengthen your relationships.
Fitness can be confusing. There is a lot of information to sort through. Eat this, not that. Cardio before or after strength training? Your trainer can help you find credible information and provide direction on your fitness journey. A trainer can help remove the guesswork so you can put all your energy toward accomplishing your goals.
Free Your Social Butterfly
The only thing more fun than strength training is strength training with a friend or partner. Also, there is such a tight-knit strength training community who will share common values and interests with you. Love your fellow lifters!
The gym can be intimidating. Working with a trainer allows you to become confident with how to perform exercises, use machines and navigate the facility. After a few sessions, you will feel ready to tackle the weight room on your own. Even better, an ego boost during exercise can promote stronger self-confidence and self-efficacy, which can help you stick with your exercise program over the long term.
Give Yourself A Break From Your Brain
Although strength training requires focus, it gives your brain a break from the incessant intellectual thinking you endure all day.
Be the Energizer Bunny
Strength training leads to more strength, power, and endurance, which equals more energy!
Strengthen Your Sleep
Strength training allows for a better sleep pattern to develop. It has been documented that those who train can sleep more deeply. Your body will need that quality sleep in order to repair, recover, and reap the benefits of all of your hard work. You earned it!
Say Sayonara to Stress
I’ve already mentioned that strength training releases endorphins, which puts anxiety and depression in the doghouse. It also increases norepinephrine, which can boost your brain’s ability to cope with stress. Feeling stressed? Start squatting!
Training With Medical Conditions
Exercise is beneficial for preventing or managing many common chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. However, exercising with a medical condition requires additional precautions. A knowledgeable trainer with experience training clients with chronic conditions can design a program that ensures your safety and provides a positive exercise experience.
Make Time For YOU
Make uninterrupted “you time” an essential part of your day. Do some cleans to clear your mind. Believe me, everyone will be better for it!
When it comes to fitness, everyone is different. Your unique body mechanics, experience, goals, fitness level, likes and dislikes can guide your trainer in creating a plan that is specific to your needs. With a program that fits, you are more likely to maintain the habit and see results.
