After being on a particular fitness track for a while, you may want to change it up or give something new a try but are unsure as to where or how you should start. If you are only beginning your fitness journey and feel intimidated or confused by the machines and free weights, then perhaps a UFC Gym Personal Trainer is for you.
A UFC Gym PT can help you reach your goals and make sure you get the most out of your gym time. With their high level of expertise, they will help you to work out more efficiently and see results faster. Here are some tips to get started:
Don’t Choose the First Trainer You See
There is a tendency for people to perform better and achieve greater results when they are able to connect with their trainers. It’s similar to school, where you probably performed better when you liked a certain teacher that you could understand and were looking forward to having another class with. In this case, you will put in more effort and look forward to your sessions. However, that won’t be the case with every trainer.
Like any relationship, you may feel more compatible with some people than others. Therefore, having a chat with the trainers can help you see if you have that chemistry.
Watch Them With Other Clients
Once you have a clear idea of which PT could really help you, take a few minutes to see how they work with their other clients. This will help you to understand their training style and see if that would be compatible with you. Although trainers tailor their workouts for each client, you will be able to see whether they are supportive, attentive and receptive to input. If that is the case, then you probably have found the right one!
Honesty is Key
For your introductory session, your personal trainer will want to know all about you. From the good to the bad, be completely transparent about the challenges that you’re facing when it comes to fitness. Whether you feel that you lack motivation and appreciate having more encouragement or you have doubts about your recent food diet or you have fears about injuring yourself during a session, whatever worries or bad habits you have, be completely honest. The more transparent you are with your trainer, the easier it will be for him to help you.
Set Goals Together
Some people simply want to “get into shape,” but it would be more beneficial for you to have goals that you can work towards. For example, if you have never run a long distance race, ask your trainer how long it will take for you sign up for a 5k. You may have endurance goals or strength-training goals where you want to make it through an intense HIIT session without stopping or lifting a certain amount of weight.
Create a Realistic Schedule
Having a PT can make a difference, but that will only be effective if you actually show up! You already decided to commit yourself to hiring a trainer, so show your commitment by going to all your training sessions. The easiest way to ensure that you never miss a session is to have a standing appointment. Make sure that your trainer is available at this time and try to book as many sessions in advance as you can.
