The Number 1 misconception of personal training

When people think about personal training they think about just having a trainer for a few sessions and then they will just be able to follow that same workout for the rest of their life and get the results that they want.

This is a big mistake because if you truly want to get the results you REALLY want and KEEP them then you will want to make sure that you are using a trainer for the long term. Think about all of the programs that are sold on tv and how all of them only promote a “90 Day Program” or some kind of quick fix with no long term solution.

The problem with these programs is they are a quick fix or a band aid approach to getting you to your goals. Some of these programs can get you results quickly but they will not last very long which kind of defeats the purpose of fitness. Why would you want to reach a goal that is very important to the quality of your life and YOU, to only be able to have your results for a few weeks and then go right back into your old ways.

These programs do not teach the necessary fundamentals and education for you to train yourself FOREVER and make this a lifestyle. Therefore they are the MOST EXPENSIVE programs to choose because you have to keep buying them over and over again but never learning what you really need to do to keep your results.

You want to invest in a personal trainer for a MINIMUM of 6 months if not longer if you are going to take control of your life and results FOREVER. Think about it like this, if you were going to get a degree in nursing, business, dentistry, etc, You would not go to school for a few weeks or a few months and expect to be a professional and know exactly what to do and when.

Instead you would go to school for years to master the skills necessary to be successful in the future. You would go to school for years because you would first have to learn the fundamentals of what you are doing and then get good at them and then progress to the intermediate skills and then perfect them and then go to advanced skills.

Now you cannot get to the intermediate skills or even the advanced skills without MASTERING the fundamentals. And that is one of the BIGGEST mistakes people make when they are trying to reach their fitness goals, is hiring a personal trainer purely for a few sessions and then go and try it on their own.

So we recommend thinking LONG TERM when it comes to personal training and having someone coach you. The longer you train with your trainer the more benefits you will receive because you are practicing good habits and perfecting the fundamentals.
