Achieving physical fitness can be incredibly overwhelming. There are many different ways to be fit, and everyone has different ideas of what fitness means. Not to mention the amount of information out there is staggering. A Google search of "getting in shape" yields roughly 335 MILLION results. Searching "health and fitness blogs for beginners" will get you nearly 17 million. How do you sift through all that information? Where do you start? That's where one of our Phenom Fitness trainers come in!
Working with a personal trainer will keep you accountable.
For some (like the people that work at Phenom) fitness is their passion. But for most people exercise is a necessary evil - something they know they should do, it's "good" for them. Still, it's easier to sit on the couch and binge through the second season of Stranger Things on Netflix then it is to get to the gym. Once they do get to the gym it's a lot easier to stop working out as soon as they get uncomfortable and sweaty, even though they've barely started. When you schedule sessions with your personal trainer it's like making a very important appointment, and you're paying for it. Someone else's schedule is depending on you so you take it more seriously and show up. Not just that, but even if you're not 100% "feeling it" your trainer will make sure that you get the most out of your workout and will hold you accountable for every rep of every set of every exercise.
A good personal trainer is a lifetime investment.
A lot of people balk at the cost of a personal trainer. At Phenom we try to keep training very accessible and affordable with various packages and options available, but like anything else you get what you pay for. This is your long term health and well being. Fitness isn't just about how you look, but your health as well. In the long run, the cost of a personal trainer is less than costly medical procedures anyway. At the end of the day, making an investment in a trainer is an investment in how you look, how you feel, and your internal health, you just gotta show up and do the work.

Utilizing a personal trainer prevents injury but yields results.
Working out with a personal trainer ensures that even if you're pushed out of your comfort zone, you're not pushed so hard you injure yourself. It also guarantees you are using the machines properly and performing every exercise correctly - if performed incorrectly an exercise puts you at risk and if done repetitively can cause you pain and disrupt your posture. Even if you're just a bit off you could be targeting the wrong muscle group which will impede your growth, especially important if you're a competitor or bodybuilder.
Working out with a personal trainer will keep you confident and motivated in the gym.
The gym environment can be very intimidating. When you walk in you might see several already fit people, their headphones in, moving through their workouts with ease, and you worry about being judged or looked at because you don't know how to use certain things or what workout to do yourself. Utilizing a personal trainer prevents that; you will have someone telling you precisely what to do, so you're guaranteed to have results, and you're learning a ton along the way.
Achieving your own idea of what fitness means to you and what you look like can seem like a daunting task - hiring an experienced personal trainer will make it a lot easier.
