The Benefits of Hiring A Personal Trainer

Are you just starting your fitness journey and wondering what the benefits of hiring a personal trainer are? Do you already have experience exercising but want support and tips to reach your goals? Are you a fitness pro who’s hit a plateau and could benefit from the strategy of a professional trainer for continuing education to reach your goals? 

There are many reasons why you might consider hiring a personal trainer; these are just a few. The “why” behind this decision may vary widely, but the desired result is always the same: Hiring a personal trainer can vastly enhance your health and wellness.

By working with a trainer, you’ll get expert guidance and support to unlock new levels of growth toward achieving your personal fitness objectives, whether you’re simply looking to look and feel better, increase your confidence, or if you are training for a boxing fight, ultramarathon or another kind of strength and endurance activity. 

If you’ve been thinking of hiring a personal trainer and wondering what one would do for you, this post is for you. Read on to learn more about our members’ favorite perks of private personal training to see if this route is right for you.


A personal trainer’s job is to get to know you. This extends beyond the initial stages of a personal training assessment or discussions in which you share your desires about losing weight, gaining muscle, increasing endurance, or training for a specific event. When hiring a personal trainer, these professionals will look at other aspects of your life that can affect your health and fitness, such as your day-to-day routine, your stressors, your diet and nutrition, and more, to give you an all-encompassing picture of your health and wellness. They’ll be able to work with you and this information to build a clear 360-degree plan that will take forward towards your short- and long-term goals. 

Whether you are looking to reduce your body fat, get regular fitness assessments so you can see the data behind your progression, or focus on high intensity interval training that can help you build lean muscle and burn calories fast, personal trainers will design exercise programs that are highly customized for you! By assessing your dreams, goals, and current fitness and nutrition status, they’ll gain an intimate understanding of what you need to do to get to where you want to go. 

Let’s take a step back: what if you are not even sure what your fitness goals are or what they should be?? Not a problem! Your personal trainer can talk this through with you to help you figure out what you really want out of all this effort.


Every single person who sets foot in the gym is at a different stage along their personal fitness journey. By hiring a personal trainer, you’ll work hand in hand with an expert who will help you develop a personalized workout plan that can take you from where you are (Point A) to where you want to be (Point B). Don’t worry, your trainer won’t pile on unattainable goals that will feel overwhelming. Personal trainers know how to create a training plan that pushes you enough to get results without pushing you over the edge.

Hiring a personal trainer and receiving a customized plan can make a world of difference when trying to stick with a workout routine. Trainers can be the catalyst that helps you keep pushing for your fitness goals, rather than abandoning them. When thinking about hiring a personal trainer, talk to them about your fears, hurdles and challenges so they’ll be able to set measurable, reachable milestones along the way.


When hiring a personal trainer, you’ll learn expert information to help you fine-tune your techniques, learn new ones, and ensure, perhaps most importantly of all, that you’re performing each exercise correctly. Personal trainers are eagle-eyed at identifying bad habits, including improper form, that you might have learned along the way.

The importance of proper form is to prevent injury, which can set you back a lot longer in your fitness journey. The correct form can also help you get more out of each rep and exercise so that you’re working out more efficiently.

This is extremely important if you’re new to exercising or exploring a new type of workout or class, like boxing, kickboxing, weight training, or a high intensity interval training class like our Fastrack Class.

This is extremely important if you’re new to exercising or exploring a new type of workout or class, like boxing, kickboxing, or weight training, where you’ll be pushing new muscle groups harder than you have before. Plus, in a physically intense training program, such as boxing, correct form safeguards your muscles and bones so that you can fight safely and effectively.


When you’re having a great workout, your personal trainer is there to cheer you on and keep you going. And when you’re having a challenging workout . . . your personal trainer is there to cheer you on and keep you going. 

When hiring a personal trainer, you’re literally hiring someone who will be there for you, to hold you accountable, and to help you obtain that next fitness milestone even if you don’t want to get out of bed that day. The longer they work with you, the better they get to know you — and more intimately they know what keeps you motivated, focused, and on track. Sometimes it’s hard to push ourselves out of our comfort zone. Your personal trainer is a friend and ally who will keep you inspired through the ups and downs.


With every fitness goal you achieve, however large or small, your personal trainer can tweak your workouts to get you to the next level. Say, for example, you wanted to run your first 5K. Maybe the next goal is to complete a 10K, or even half marathon. 

When hiring a personal trainer to be with you throughout the process, they’ll know exactly what you need to hit each successive milestone. And if you’re not sure what the next goal should be, they will help you adjust and discover on an ongoing basis, just like they did on day one.
