Whether you’re new to the world of health & fitness, or you’re just looking for a way to take your training to the next level, hiring a fitness coach is a fantastic idea. A coach can help you in a variety of ways – and ensure that you meet your goals. Whether you want to lose weight, compete in a sport, or just feel better about yourself, a fitness coach can help.
1. Stay Accountable & Motivated
One of the most difficult parts of staying consistent is motivation. It can be hard to feel motivated to work out after a long day at work, or on a lazy Saturday morning, when you just want to sleep in and binge the latest Netflix series.
But with a coach there is an element of personal accountability and motivation, which can help you train more effectively. Your fitness coach will provide you with a structure for your workouts – and they’re expecting you to show up at your next session. This helps you stay accountable, and keeps you on the right track when it comes to your personal goals.
2. Reduce Your Risk Of Injury & Overtraining
Even if you’re in good shape, there’s a risk you could injure yourself when you try a new exercise. Improper technique can result in injuries that could sideline you for weeks.
In the same way, training too much can also cause you to injure yourself or stall progress. A fitness coach not only helps recommend the right exercises, ensures you have proper form and technique, but also keeps your training volume appropriate based on your training frequency, goals, and ability.
3. Enjoy More Variety In Your Workouts
Your coach will develop a workout for you – and introduce the right amount of variation to keep things interesting and effective. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about developing these workouts yourself. This takes out all the uncertainty and time needed to prepare before the actual workout. Just show up, and be lead through a productive training session!
4. Learn Lifelong Skills
Your fitness coach is a great resource for things like fitness tips, nutrition advice, mobility techniques and other such information that you can use to live a healthier life – and this knowledge is sure to stick with you for years and decades to come. At Rise, we feel this is the biggest difference between a coach and a trainer. As coaches we strive to teach our clients the skills they need to succeed versus simply handing out a workout or meal plan.
5. Get Referrals To Other Specialists
Need a massage therapist? A skills coach for a particular sport? A physiotherapist for nagging knee pain? A meal prep company? Chances are, your fitness coach has plenty of connections in the nearby area, and can provide you with referrals to other specialists. Better yet, most reputable professionals will work together to develop and deliver the best collective plan for your needs.
