3 Popular Myths about Personal Training in the Triangle and Beyond

FFL24- Oct 20 Pic- 100209596Celebrity exclusiveness, Biggest Loser-type challenges, and other pop culture references are typical images that come to mind whenever the subject of personal training arises. The thing is, many of these are just stereotypes and misconceptions about the practical, affordable, health-enhancing services that qualified personal trainers provide.

Fit For Life 24 in Apex wants exercisers of all skill levels to know that personal trainers are an excellent resource when it comes to implementing health, fitness, and lifestyle changes.

Fit for Life24 shares and explains the three most popular myths surrounding professional personal trainers:

  • Personal training is just too expensive: Personal training is an investment in your health. While it isn’t the least expensive way to go about fitness, it just might be the most valuable. Instead of looking at the dollar amount, consider the cost versus the benefits. Personal trainers maximize the time and effort their client’s put into a fitness routine. In contrast, a cheaper, often less used membership or occasional solo visit to the gym or fitness center here in Apex, could be a waste of money if the desired results don’t follow.
  • Personal trainers act like drill sergeants: On television and in other media, fitness coaches are often depicted yelling, screaming, and scaring their clients into working out. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The vast majority of personal trainers are in the business to motivate and inspire people, not to break them down. Trainers benefit when their clients succeed, so they seek to understand each client and adapt their coaching style accordingly. A trainer’s goal is to help a client look forward to exercise by instilling confidence and methodology.
  • Hiring a trainer automatically ensures success: Working with a personal trainer greatly increases the chances of meeting specific fitness goals. However, it is not a cure-all or magic pill. Members need to put in the work outside of training sessions, and follow their trainer’s advice in other areas (such as nutrition) that complement a fitness routine. A trainer can’t be around 24/7; but as coaches and mentors, they are invaluable to achieving both results and success.

Designing, starting and sticking to a fitness program is hard work. Many FFL24 members desperately want to succeed, but at the same time sometimes feel their motivation fade, especially in the beginning month or two. The expertise and support of a personal trainer can mean the difference when working towards goals and trying to actually achieve them.
