Let’s say you know a bit about working out, you’ve read the books and watched videos online on how to train your body. The first few weeks are good, you workout routine is very good, but after a while it feels like you are not making any more progress. Sure you can do the research yourself, but that will take time away from your actual goal, this is where having a trainer really helps out. With a trainer you have the person with the experience and knowledge to get you to your goals.
When you have a trainer, you will have a friendly guide who can help you reach the level you want to achieve. The knowledge and experience they poses can be achievable with self-study, but this is inefficient, as you would be building up from scratch. If you allow a trainer to show you what he knows and work on it, you allow yourself a tested path to your goal. And when the time comes that you are at the same level or higher than your trainer, it is time for you to move on and build from where his knowledge and experience ends.
Trainers doesn’t need to be the very best of whatever field you are taking them from, just someone experience who could allow you to expand your knowledge and ideas. They could be your temporary master, or a peer that could discuss ideas with and assist in your training.
Expanding Your Limits
If you are doing a sport as a hobby or something similar, you will still need a trainer to guide you the proper way of doing things. But if you are planning to become a professional or just really good at your sport (Maybe to show off), you will definitely need a trainer to help you reach and break you limits.
When it comes to going beyond your limits and increasing your ability, you will definitely need a guide that could help you achieve your goal, but also to keep you from hurting yourself. When it comes to achieving something like this you will need to do it slowly and carefully, if not you could get hurt to a point where you are no longer able to reach your dreams. Many potential professional athletes became a victim to this, training too hard, not listening to their coaches and trainers that they end up destroying any possibility of ever reaching their full potential.
A Good Friend
I’ve had a few trainers in my life, and most of them became very good friends of mine. They go beyond their employment and make sure of your wellbeing, and having a good trainer as a buddy will help you with reaching your goals, as they will not only give their professional advice but the advice of a good friend, which does actually help a lot.
It is only possible to reach your athletic goals and potential by having a friend that will assist you throughout the way, a friend who is knowledgeable and help you discuss options and weigh the pros and cons. You need a Trainer!
