Why hire a Personal Trainer or Coach?

Isn’t that for pros and wannabe athletes? Not necessarily – the benefits of personal training
extend beyond goal-oriented athletes.
Whether you’re someone who is starting their fitness journey, a seasoned gym goer or
recreational athlete, having a personal trainer or coach can help you meet your fitness goals
faster, safer and more effectively, gaining better results or simply learning to enjoy exercise
more than you ever thought possible.
The benefits of personal training can be endless but here I’ve broken down my top 7 reasons
for hiring a PT or a sports-specific coach and how you can make the best of having one.


In a world diluted with influencers and fitness “pros”, you can’t beat expert advice from a qualified and experienced professional. 
A qualified PT is the expert you need to provide you with tailored advice and
exercises, whether your goal is to:

  • Complete your first marathon or triathlon
  • Improve your sporting game
  • Charge up your training
  • Maximize your time and effort

The benefits of personal training and expert advice are unquestionable if you’re:

  • Suffering or recovering from an injury

  • Working out during pregnancy

  • Getting back to exercising post natal


Everyone’s goals differ, which is why if you take two people and do the same online program you will likely get different results.
Investing in a PT means you get:

  • Personalised training

  • Encouragement and guidance on how to try new movements and workouts

  • A wider variety of exercise in your training routine

Safe and suitable programming is one of the top benefits of personal training, and particularly important if you have any contraindications to exercise, injuries, pre/post-natal or post-menopausal.


When exercising on your own it can be easy to skip a session, snooze your alarm clock or cheat a set. A personal trainer will keep you accountable and push your workouts to the next level while providing motivation throughout each session for the duration of your program.


It can be easy to fall into the same workout habits, eventually getting bored with your workout routine. In addition to affecting your mood and motivation, this is a common cause of training plateau and you may be left wondering why you’re not seeing results from your workout plan. A personal trainer can bring much needed variety and a fresh perspective and new viewpoints to challenge both your body and mind. You can use these learnings and inspiration even after your PT program ends.


PT’s conduct a needs analysis and use their expertise to create a tailored and individual fitness plan to help you maximise results in a timely manner,  increasing the efficiency of your exercise program. 

This is especially beneficial if you have limited time to exercise – you know, nothing out of the ordinary, just the usual full-time job, family and social commitments – and you want to capitalize on the time you spend working out. Effective workouts with a personal trainer will make sure you’ll have time for other important things in your life.


One of the perhaps lesser-known benefits of personal training is that it’s much more than fitness. Personal trainers act as unofficial therapists and can provide a great source of connection. Sure, they’ll help you reach your fitness goals but they also care about your well- being and can assist in improving not only your physical but mental health.



Depending on your goals and budget, you may use a personal trainer once a week or once  month. If you’re not sure, just try it out once to see if it’s right for you. PT can provide you with information, tools and resources on your nutrition and lifestyle habits to maximise your results. That is something you can take with you and incorporate in your journey to healthy, active living in the long term.
