Personal Training Questions and Answers
How long should you have a personal trainer?
Weeks or years. Depending on your commitment and your goals, and of course your finances.
What are the benefits of working with a personal trainer?
You get results. Once again, depending on your commitment, you also learn the basics of training and then nutrition.
Is a personal trainer worth it for weight loss?
Absolutely. There is no better way to do it through a combination of nutrition and resistance training is the best way. Bar none and they’re someone to motivate you.
How many personal training sessions would you do before you start seeing results?
As little as 10. Because personal trainers have the expertise to get you the results that you are looking for, provided you do what you’re told.
So, what reasons are there for using a personal trainer?
There are many reasons. They could be as simple as weight loss or weight gain, or it could be to combat age. It can be for rehabilitation from injury. It could be prehabilitation which prevents injury, especially for people as they get older. It can be for increasing their stabilization strength and core strength.
Do you really need a personal trainer?
It depends on what you classify as need because you know you don’t need a car, but it makes life a hell of a lot easier if you have to go from here to Dublin. Without public transport or a car. That’s how much you need a personal trainer, it’s, it’s what you want to do, it’s where you want to be. And so I would say you need a personal trainer if you want to get the best results for your time and money.
Are personal trainers a waste of money?
They can be, if you go to the wrong personal trainer, and also the fact that many places advertise Personal Training, when in fact they aren’t actually doing Personal Training, they’re doing small group training where different people have different abilities and capabilities. And that was where “Personal Training” can be a waste of money.
How often, per week, should I do Personal Training?
I recommend three to four. But not less than two to get decent results.
How many calories would you burn when you’re training with a personal trainer?
While it’s not that actually important how many calories you burn it’s the after effects that have the really good benefits. So you get your muscle growth, but you also boost your metabolism, for a number of hours up to 10 hours after you do a personal training session with resistance whereas with cardio say you go for a run it’s not going to have any effect on your metabolism once you’ve finished that sun.
