Why a personal trainer?

We all know we don’t get enough excercise

It’s a fact that 70% of adults don’t do enough physical activity. And when you combine this with that fact that most people over indulge in good food and probably too much alcohol, it’s not surprising that many of us don’t feel healthy, fit and confident about our body shape.

Longer term, not looking after yourself can have more serious consequences. Heart problems, diabetes, back pains and lack of mobility in old age are all a direct consequence of not taking better care of ourselves.

It is estimated that on average we consume 50 more calories than we expend in energy each day. Imagine, 50 calories a day building up over a lifetime – no wonder people struggle with expanding waistlines by the time they hit 40.

Motivation, motivation, motivation

OK. So we know that we’re not doing enough, and probably eating too much. Why don’t we do something about it? Because it’s really difficult. Our lives are too busy, we work to hard, we drive everywhere, eat convenience foods and by the end of the working day are ready just to slump in front of the telly with a nice glass of wine.

Even when we do make a New Year’s resolution to ‘get fit’, the good intentions don’t last. Exercise and fitness seems to mean going out in the rain and cold and trudging through the streets, trying not to look stupid.

Or it’s joining a gym that costs up to £100 per month, and only going there about three times a year. Let’s face it, going to the gym involves packing your kit, driving ½ hour to the gym, changing, working out for an hour, showering and changing, and driving back. A 1½ hour stint at best. How many of us can afford that sort of time out?

On-to-one help in the comfort of your own home

Why don’t we exercise enough? Simply because it’s not easy, and few people have the motivation to actually maintain a regime. If you feel this describes you, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

There’s nothing fancy or special about a ‘personal trainer’. The concept is not just for film stars or celebrities. A personal trainer is a logical and simple answer to the challenge of motivating yourself to keep in shape and helping you cope with the stresses and strains of today’s lifestyle.

The personal trainer comes to your home, and you work out in your living room for an hour. It takes you 10 minutes to get ready, and 15 minutes to wash and change afterwards. You can select a convenient time, and the personal trainer will make sure you keep that time. (Only reasonable excuses accepted!) The personal trainer becomes your motivation, and gets you over the hurdles and excuses for not doing anything. The personal trainer becomes your answer to keeping yourself in shape and feeling good.
