personal trainingThere are countless benefits to working out with a personal trainer.  People of any age and experience level can see better results and live a healthier lifestyle.  A personal trainer will help create a unique workout plan to fit your individual needs and goals, and can accommodate an injury or other obstacle that might otherwise prevent you from exercising.


Watch Adam Stancil, personal trainer at HealthQuest Fitness and Wellness Center, as he speaks with My Carolina Today host Valonda Calloway on the benefits of personal training.  Adam has worked at HealthQuest for 10 years and is ACSM Certified (American College of  Sports Medicine).


Benefits of a Personal Trainer

1. Faster and better results

Having a personal trainer to guide you through your fitness routine will help make sure you are spending time on the proper types of exercise.  If you only have a limited amount of time to work out, a personal trainer will make sure you get the best results possible for the amount of time that you put it.

2. Proper fat loss and muscle gain

Most people have multiple goals when working out, the most common being fat loss and muscle gain.  It’s often hard to find the right balance between these two, and a personal trainer can help you find the right exercises to achieve all of your goals.

3. Reduced chance of injury

A personal trainer will teach you the proper form and technique to use during your workout so you can stay safe and injury-free.

4. Establishes a lifetime exercise habit

A personal trainer can help you find ways to make healthy living and exercise a priority in your life.  They can help you overcome obstacles that might prevent you from exercising, and help you set many small, achievable goals.

5. Overcome plateaus

When you hit a plateau in your exercise routine, it can be hard to push through and stay motivated.  A personal trainer can help you understand why you hit a plateau and find ways for you to work through it and see more results.

  2. People usually opt of gym becomes of boredom and I believe that hiring a personal trainer will kill boredom instead you will be highly motivated if the trainer is good enough to keep the workouts shuffled and entertaining

  3. I really like the fact that you can get faster and better results with a personal trainer. After all, that’s one of the reasons that many people go to the gym in the first place! However, it can be discouraging to not see progress when you have been working really hard. Getting a trainer is a great way to make sure you see all the benefits and feel good more quickly.

  4. I have been out of shape for a while now, and wanted a little help learning how to get back into shape. It’s crazy that they actually reduce the chance of injury. I know that I wouldn’t know how to do most of the exercises, and it would be nice to have someone showing me.

  5. I’ve only hired a PT once to top up my training when I began to plateau and see less and less results. I could have trained solo for years without getting anywhere not knowing the subtle form tweaks, explanations and supplement facts I got out of one single hour session. There’s a lot to be said for choosing a good PT

  6. I’m glad that you mentioned professional trainers being able to use techniques that will avoid injury. I have been looking for ways to stay healthy this year. It would be smart to work with a professional trainer because I don’t know many safe ways to work out.

  7. That is great that a personal trainer can help guide you through a fitness routine to get the best results for the amount of time you have. I would love to get more fit, and I have been wondering what I could do. A personal trainer sounds great. Thank you for the information!
