It’s surprising how outdated some training methods still are today, what with all the new advances in techniques. Gyms usually have rows of machines, but this type of training lends itself to slow muscle building, not rapid fat loss. The average person hopes a brisk walk on the treadmill or the elliptical machine will do the job. But it doesn’t and he/she never significantly changes their physique.

Finding A Personal Trainer

It’s surprising how outdated some training methods still are today, what with all the new advances in techniques. Gyms usually have rows of machines, but this type of training lends itself to slow muscle building, not rapid fat loss. So the average person hopes a brisk walk on the treadmill or the elliptical machine will do the job. But it doesn’t and he/she never significantly changes their physique. Eventually, interest begins to wane, along with the belief that reaching an attainable goal is possible.

Now what if the gym trainer tells you he has the answer? Here’s the truth – most trainers at these gyms are paid by the hour and are unmotivated to see rapid change in your physique. Many are young, inexperienced and fail to upgrade past their minimum requirement. You’ll see them socializing with clients while sitting them on a ball for core strength and doing a few arm curls. With the wrong methology, it’s hardly surprising that change remains elusive.

Confused, lost, and unsure, these people look to find someone to help and lead them in the right direction. Of course no one does and they simply watch others and copy their exercises without any rationale, reason, or direction.

You could of course join a smaller studio which offers yoga, spinning or cardio classes. And though these are more intense and can condition, they fail to build a solid base of lean muscle, so critical for long term weight loss. And further , without proper nutrition added to the mix, they fail to achieve optimum results.

So if unmotivated, or if good health has eluded you, here’s the truth. Becoming stronger, burning fat and feeling better begins with a competent trainer who knows how to achieve results. Be ruthless in asking tough questions that lead to your success – how many clients has he/she trained and how long have they been in business, how effective are the methods used (ask former clients), and how quickly can this trainer get you to your goals. In our time starved and sedentary work forces, safe, effective and rapid fitness and nutrition results are critical.

Having established this criteria, jump into the deep end and make the decision to get into shape. Good health leads to more energy, strength, job performance, less stress, less disease, longer lifespan and so on. Ultimately, this also leads to greater success because it’s an investment in yourself.

So if you’re less than motivated by yourself, this should not even be a debate; it’s a smart decision.

Great share Jorg, the reality shows on TV is proof enough of what you say. Those personal trainers get results and know exactly what needs to be done in order to loose weight and healthy eating.

Joined a local studio for cardio and yoga and the results are awesome. I have built my muscles and lost 10 lbs. in 7 days.
