According to client Lana Pujara, personal training is highly essential. A professional trainer teaches the proper way to perform each exercise movement in your routine. She demonstrates the movement, coaches you through it, and corrects any issues with your posture or technique. Learning how to perform exercises properly reduces your risk of injury and increases the movement’s efficacy. When you can perform a move the right way, it increases the likelihood that you’ll do it on your own at home or at the gym after your training sessions.

Lana explains that she prefers personal training as compared to working out in a commercial gym. It is also a fact that If one lacks commitment, self-motivation, or just the ability to kick his own self in the pants, a personal trainer could be key to getting a new fitness routine off the ground. When you exercise on your own, it is easier to skip a session here and there or fall off the wagon completely since there’s no one to hold you to your actions. When you work with a trainer, whether you don’t want to lose the money or don’t want to let them down, you’re far more likely to show up and do the work.
