Hiring a personal trainer is a huge commitment, especially financially. It is a great way to stay on track with your fitness goals, as there are a lot of benefits to human personal trainers, such as the face-to-face, hands on workouts and live motivation. However, hiring a personal trainer is not realistic for everyone. For many, the cost is a barrier as personal can sometimes run up to a couple hundred dollars for one hour, with some even pricier. Others may find that the time commitment is simply not possibly for their busy schedule. Remember, it is not only your schedule that needs to be considered but also the trainers.
Whether you are trying to stay committed to your New Year resolutions, or just stay on track in your health and fitness routine, anyone will tell you that there are highs and lows. Staying motivated is not always an easy task. No matter what you end goal is—to kick a bad habit, lose some stubborn pounds, or gain muscle mass—some days are going to be easier than others.
Let’s take me as an example. Getting up at 5:30 a.m. on Monday mornings after a busy weekend takes a special push to get my tennis shoes on and me out the door. Even more challenging for me is working out in the evening after a long day at work (hence my morning routine). Maybe your challenge is keeping your fitness routine up throughout the entire week, or perhaps not skipping it for some weekend fun.
