What is Personal Training? You’ve heard of personal trainers, right? And, you know kinda sorta what they do. But, are youaware of how beneficial they are to your success at losing weight and/or gaining strength?No doubt about it, having someone who is extremely educated and knowledgeable about healthand fitness can only help you achieve your goals, yet so few people use them. Why? Because webelieve we can do it ourselves.It’s the same as how we doctor ourselves. We start to not feel good, so we go to the internet andresearch our “symptoms.” Before we know it, we’ve diagnosed ourselves with the most Godawful disease known to man. We go to the doctor for confirmation, only to be told that it’s a coldthat will likely go away on its own in 7-10 days. Makes you feel kind of foolish, doesn’t it?Well, isn’t it just as silly to try to develop your own fitness routine when you know just enoughto be dangerous? And, why risk injury or, at a minimum, no results when you can go to someonethat can tell you exactly what you need to do and teach you exactly how to do it?What Do Personal Trainers Know That You Don’t?Personal trainers know more than you may realize when it comes to health and fitness.
