Top 4 Benefits of 1-on-1 Personal Training

These days, your fitness options are seemingly unlimited. There is a multitude of gyms, CrossFit boxes, cycling studios, boot camps, and the list goes on. Choosing your path to fitness is a big decision indeed, but the choice may just be a lot easier than you think.


Here is a list of 4 reasons why training 1 on 1 with a personal trainer can be the best decision you ever made for your health and well-being…


1. Cleanliness of the environment: While it’s a non-issue right now during the Covid-19 pandemic as all gyms and fitness studios are closed, the fact is, large gyms and group fitness classes are not necessarily the cleanest environments. For one, you have a huge group of people all sweating in close proximity. If any of those have any sickness, bacteria, etc. on their body, you can bet it will be spread around. And when jumping from machine to machine in a gym, anything short of a complete wipe down with disinfectant will not be sufficient to get rid of any lingering germs. When training 1 on 1 with a trainer, however, there is far more control over the cleanliness of the environment. Space itself and any equipment you use will be personally sanitized and ready for your safe use. In these days of viral sickness, limited human contact is crucial, and that is exactly what you will get in the environment of a 1-on-1 personal training studio.


2. You don’t like group workouts: If you listen to the mantras and talk surrounding group fitness facilities, one might think that working out with a room full of people is the ONLY way to get into amazing shape. It’s not. Some people just don’t like working out in a crowded room, and if you are one of them, 1 on 1 session are absolutely the way to go. It is just you, the trainer, and your goals.


3. Less likelihood of injury: No matter how diligent a trainer maybe, trying to correct form and prevent injury when training 40 or 50 people is…well, impossible. If someone is performing an exercise incorrectly during a group workout there is a highly likely chance the trainer may never even notice. When working out with a trainer 1 on 1, they will be focused on every movement you make and will correct bad form BEFORE it turns into a painful injury. This benefit alone is worth the price of the training.


4. Goal-oriented programs specifically designed for YOU: When taking a group fitness class, the workout performed is the SAME for everyone in that class. Old, young, overweight, skinny, everyone is doing the same exact workout. That’s great if everyone has the same exact goals, but one size hardly EVER fits all. When working 1 on 1 with a personal trainer, they can develop a program that is specifically designed to meet your exact goals. This could mean workouts designed to help you lose fat, build muscle, increase endurance, etc. In addition, the workouts and exercises performed in YOUR workout will take into consideration any pre-existing injuries you may have or health conditions that may limit your abilities in certain areas. In short, the workouts designed will be YOURS.


So, if you have been on the fence about which direction to go with your fat loss and fitness program, hopefully, the info shared here will help you make your decision. 1 on 1 training is a safer, cleaner, and more effective option over your typical gym and group fitness class. No matter what your decision though, good luck reaching your fitness goals and stay safe! 214-457-9684
