How You Benefit Using a Personal Trainer
By Susie Dixon

When it comes to diet and weight loss we’ve all struggled.  Curves, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, are all designed with women in mind because it is hard for women to lose weight.

So is there a benefit to using a personal trainer?

Well if you’re a woman who wants to lose weight, get in shape, perhaps figure out the right kind of diet then it’s a great idea to work with a personal trainer. Especially if you do not have a lot of previous experience in exercise and weight lifting.

Personal trainers are specially trained to help you figure out what kind of exercise will work best for your specific needs. They will:
•    design the best kind of strength and cardio training for you
•    protect you from overdoing it and getting hurt it
•    keep you focused on your goals

Weight loss or toning for women is difficult because it is easy to get discouraged and give up. That’s why using a personal trainer is so important.

A personal trainer can help you see results quickly.  This keeps you from getting discouraged and losing focus.  That’s a key to losing weight, building lean muscle, boosting your metabolism and getting fit.

There are some costs involved when you hire a personal trainer, however the benefits greatly outweigh the costs. Anyone who has tried multiple diets or workouts with little or no results will testify that hiring someone to help you get your body fit quickly is a good investment.

It still might be a good idea to hire a person trainer even if you’re doing everything right, losing weight on your own, working out and getting all you want out of your exercise.


They’ll help keep you focused, you’ll continue seeing your body change quickly and prevent the dreaded plateau where your progress stops and the yo-yo weight gain starts.

There’s another benefit to hiring a personal trainer.

They may see something you are missing. Sometimes being outside the situation helps you to see all the different angles. This is just as true with working out as anything else.

Personal trainers know more about what it takes to keep in shape, once you’ve gotten to your desired goals, than you may ever know.
Another way to think about it is to compare your body to a car.

Would you hire a mechanic to fix your car or would you attempt to fix it yourself by reading a book or manual.

There are some of us women  who might try to fix our cars ourselves but for the most part we are going to rely on the experts to help.

My advice, don’t try to fix your body yourself, get help from an expert.

    I’m interested in toning my body and increasing my energy. I’m curious how much does a personal trainer cost?

      Hi Debbie,
      Personal training can range from 10-100$ a session. That depends on where you live, whether you are in a private or group training and the how long your session is.
      I appreciate the questions and apologize for the delay in responding. Normally, I don’t miss emails.
      Be Great,
