Home Training vs The Gym
As the New Year approaches thousands of Women will make the decision to embark upon a new fitness program. The success of their New Years Resolutions will depend upon this decision. Some will join a support group like Weight Watchers, while others will go it alone. There will also come a time when they will consider hiring a Personal Trainer.
When hiring a Personal Trainer the potential client has to make a choice. To train in the gym? Or train at home? Both have their perks.
The gym: With a gym you can do a large variety of exercises. Not only are their machines, but in most cases, gyms offer aerobics classes that are included in the membership. Participating in group classes is a great way to get your cardio in without being bored on the treadmill for an hour. Using strength machines at the gym can be very beneficial, if you learn how to use them properly. Hiring a trainer will ensure that you are getting the most out of your workout, while learning the proper techniques to avoid injury. If you are going to join a gym and try to “go it alone,” your best bet is to join an All Women’s Fitness Facility so that you will feel comfortable enough to try new things.
Home Training: Home training is wonderful, however most get discouraged if they don’t have a trainer for motivation. It is easy to get distracted when training at home. The good thing about hiring an in-home personal trainer is that it forces the trainer to get creative. It keeps the trainer on his/her toes to keep up with the latest trends and effective exercises to target certain areas of the body. In-home training will focus a lot on form, as the client will be using tools that require balance. Having a trainer come to you can also be quite convenient if you have a hectic work schedule.
Either choice the client makes is a healthy step in the right direction. Whichever choice you make, get to work on January 1!
