Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Hire an In-Home Personal Trainer

While some people enjoy exercising and can motivate themselves to follow a fitness program faithfully, others may need someone to guide and motivate them to achieve their fitness goals. It is a good idea to engage the service of an in-home personal trainer if you are new to exercising or have a busy lifestyle. Here is a look at how hiring an in-home personal trainer can be beneficial to you. 

Saves Time

In-home personal training eliminates the need to spend time packing a bag, traveling to the gym and finding a parking spot. This is especially important if you have trouble finding time to exercise. An in-home personal trainer will arrive at your home at the scheduled time, and you can focus on exercising during the allotted time. Once the session is over, you can rest or do other things in the comfort of your own home. In-home personal training also gives you the flexibility to plan your own workout schedule.

Little or No Equipment Needed

In-home personal training usually involves exercise techniques that can be performed with little or no equipment. If you have your own equipment, your trainer may ask you to use it during your workouts. If you don’t, he or she will most likely bring everything that is needed for an effective workout. Most personal trainers know how to help you achieve the best results without expensive equipment.

Comfort and Privacy

If your body is not as good-looking as you want it to be, you may feel self-conscious when you are exercising in a public gym. This can make you feel uncomfortable and affect your exercise performance. If you hire an in-home personal trainer, you will have the privacy and peace of mind you need to concentrate on working out. Not only can you work out without an audience; you can also control the temperature and music to suit your personal preferences.

Personal Attention

Personal training in a gym or recreational center is usually standardized, and it is not catered to individual needs and goals. By hiring an in-home personal trainer, you will get one-on-one attention and a fitness program that is specially tailored for you. It will help you overcome your limitations and achieve your fitness goals more quickly.


If you enroll in a fitness program at a gym, there is a greater likelihood that you will skip your workout when you are not in the mood to exercise. A personal trainer who shows up at your door can help you stick to your exercise program more faithfully. Scheduled appointments will help you stay on track toward your goals and your trainer will keep you motivated throughout your fitness journey.

While in-home personal training offers a lot of benefits, it may not be the best fitness solution for everyone. It is advisable that you consult a fitness expert to find out whether or not it is the right option for you. Click here to learn more about the benefits of in-home personal training.

Moms: Your Exercise Excuses are Over!

During the month of January, if you pull up to your local gym I would bet that the parking lot is packed. There will be a lot of people starting new workout programs to live up to their resolutions, but after a few weeks those people usually stop going.

I found it funny that my best friend called me about to going to the gym with her because she never works out. She joked with me that the only time she got a workout in last year was when she lifted boxes while moving to her new apartment. I can understand it though. Being a mother is a full-time job in addition to having a full-time job. There is so much that needs to be done in a day, I get that, I really do.

But, there are many different exercises and programs that can be done within a few minutes and no gym is needed. As a personal trainer you can imagine all the different excuses I’ve heard about why my fellow moms are unable to workout regularly. I’m not here to make fun of them but I do have solutions to a few excuses to encourage you to get back out there and look and feel your best this year.

Finite Finances

Some of my clients told me they haven’t worked out in years because they couldn’t afford a gym membership or hiring a personal trainer. Again, I understand that, the economy has been down for a while now with unemployment rising and the price of almost everything going up with it. But all of the equipment in the gym and having a personal trainer is really a luxury. You can have a tight, sculpted body with absolutely no equipment at all.

Doing lunges from one side of your room to the other and back again is a great way to strengthen your calves, glutes, hamstring and quads. I guarantee you will feel the burn after doing a couple of these, but fight through it and complete your set. You will have toned legs in no time.

Absolutely tight abs

You know those commercials they show on TV about a new crunch machine or belt you can wear to get a flat stomach in week? Those aren’t true and the products aren’t needed. First off, getting a six pack requires more than crunches. You have to have a balanced diet because if you’re taking in a bunch of fattening foods and then doing crunches, you’re only cancelling out the effects of the workout.

Once you start eating better there are many exercises you can do to tighten your abs that don’t require any additional equipment. Lying on your back with your legs bent so your knees are pointing up and slowly curling your upper body up using your core to raise you up is a perfect drill to build muscle. You can go up higher to target different sections of your stomach to get the six-pack look. Fifteen minutes is all you need to a few sets every other day or so.

These are just a couple of ideas that require no money and a small amount of time. You don’t need any equipment and you can do these exercises at home or in an office. Do you have any tips or exercises to share?
