Top 10 Reasons To Hire An Online Personal Trainer

There are many reasons to hire your own personal coach. As you can see, your own coach is often the difference between lasting success and failure.

So here are our top 10 reasons to hire a personal coach.

1. Accountability

The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) found that you have a 65% chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with that person you’ve committed to, you will increase your chance of success by up to 95%.

We’re all much more likely to achieve anything when we’re held accountable. It’s so easy to procrastinate or skip things if you’re not held accountable. Without accountability, most people fall into the “I’ll do it tomorrow” trap, and it never gets done!

Here’s the bottom line:

Being held accountable increases the chances of getting anything done. Your own personal coach is a great way to leverage accountability.

2. Commitment

Having your own coach is a COMMITMENT. This ties into accountability. When someone makes a commitment, they have skin in the game. With commitment, you are more likely to follow through.

A personal coach is both a monetary commitment AND a personal commitment, the two greatest motivators. Think about it. When people pay money for something, they’re going to do it. When people get someone else involved with their goals, they’re going to achieve them.

Commitment to a personal coach uses basic human psychology to your advantage. Hiring a coach leverages the power of commitment.

3. Another Perspective

A fitness coach gives you another perspective besides your own.

This is a benefit of any relationship between people. But in fitness, it’s often someone who has the experience and expertise you need to succeed.

A fitness coach will see things that you might not have seen. Some things that are second nature to them might be something you never imagined. You can bounce ideas off coaches and save an enormous amount of time and money. This can be incredibly valuable and, in some cases, life changing.

People might come up with second-rate plans. Then they pursue those paths until they realize it wasn’t a good idea after all. A personal coach will help you sort through ideas, choose the best one, and help you execute it.

Remember, “Two heads are better than one.”

4. See What’s Possible

“Aha” moments are those moments when we get our minds blown by something someone else says. We’ve all experienced them. Many times, what is common sense to a professional is absolutely mind-blowing to a beginner.

A coach can point out something that might be simple, but it will completely change your world. “How did I not think of that?” is a phrase I often hear when working with our members and often say when I work with my own coach.

A great fitness coach will open up your sense of possibility. They will show you what’s really possible and work with you to help you get there.

5. Learn From Someone Who Has Done It Before

A great fitness coach has experience in what he or she is coaching, and this experience is incredibly valuable to someone starting out. The best resource is having access to someone who has already done what you’re trying to do.

A personal coach will help you achieve your goals in the most effective way. They will help you avoid the mistakes that they made and help you avoid the mistakes that almost everyone else makes when doing it on their own.

6. Access to a Proven System

I often see stubborn “do it myself” fitness types that don’t follow a specific system. They read a lot of stuff and haphazardly try everything at once. Then wonder why they don’t get results. Of course, they’re not getting results. They have no system.

One of the reasons I was in pain and seeing mediocre results for so long was that I would try everything but never really commit to a single system. And I was too stubborn and cheap to learn from people who could help me. So, the result was thirteen years of frustration.

A coach will give you a proven system. If it worked for them, and they duplicated it with others, the chances of it working for you are highly likely.

7. Saves Time, Money, and Effort

Learning from a coach’s experience and following a proven system is the fast track to success. Without a doubt, it will save you time, money, and effort over the long haul. Most people don’t realize how much money they waste on experimenting with things that don’t work.

Do you want to waste time, money, and effort? Or do you want someone to help you gain success as quickly as possible?

Hire a fitness coach and take the shortcut to fitness to success.

8. Gets You Unstuck

We all encounter fitness plateaus. Roadblocks come up all too often. They’re inevitable, and these roadblocks can be debilitating if you don’t know how to get around them.

A great fitness coach is like having a bulldozer that smoothes the bumps in the road and removes the roadblocks. They have the skills and experience to solve anything you’re facing. What may be a BIG problem for you is a simple fix to your coach or not a problem at all.

9. Builds Self-Confidence

Self-confidence is invaluable. The support of a great coach will enhance your confidence and self-worth. A professional coach will help keep you sharp and playing your best game, for the biggest game of all − life. Your time on this planet is incredibly valuable. A coach can help you make the best of it and make this life count.

10. Gets You Out of Your Comfort Zone

A great fitness coach will make you uncomfortable. They will call you out on your excuses. They will push your limits. And what’s the result? You will achieve what you’ve never achieved before.

To be successful, you can’t stay in your comfort zone. Great rewards come when you step outside of your comfort zone.
