With the ever-present engagement of social media, it seems that everybody and their mom is on a fitness and health journey. Sometimes after looking at a multitude of transformation photos, you feel motivated to go to the gym or even like you got fit just by looking at everyone’s progression photos. Other times you may feel discouraged and that you could never have a transformation photo of your own. If you are the type of person that needs more accountability than the internet, a personal trainer may be exactly what you need. Personal fitness training creates a program that works best for you as a whole person – physically, mentally and emotionally.
Scale back on weighing yourself when you start personal fitness training
Unless you are a wrestler or boxer trying to fit in a specific weight class, it is best to stop obsessing over weighing yourself on the scale. It’s best to focus on your growing strength and how you feel with looking at yourself in the mirror. You must remember that muscle weighs more than fat. Whether you’re trying to bulk up, lose weight or tone yourself, you may be losing inches around your body but the scale may not reflect that due to muscle gain. Again, it’s best to not focus on the scale! Focus on your strength and muscle gain instead.
Change your mentality
Personal fitness training helps you as a whole. This can include your nutrition as well as mental and emotional roadblocks that may occur. To get the most out of your training sessions, it’s best to fuel your body with real and essential foods. You don’t want your body to continue storing fat, so feed yourself well with foods that will truly power it. By training the entire body and mind, personal trainers customize your workouts and way to motivate you in order to give you the best results. You can change the way you think about your body, fitness training, and yourself into a more positive manner by hiring a personal trainer. We would love to join you in your personal fitness training journey!
