The Challenge Of Sticking To Personal Training
There are many reasons why people get into personal training. Most people do it to lose weight, people who thrive on limelight and media like the Hollywood stars need to keep chests and curves and look good in swim suits, the athletes do it to continue building up and maintaining their stamina.
But getting into it is the easy part. It’s the “staying on it” that poses some sort of a challenge. And that goes for everyone, stars, athletes or even just a regular bloke. Sticking to a fitness plan takes effort, determination and commitment.
What motivates you to keep at it?
People come up with many ways to stay interested in their workouts. Others go as far as changing gyms and personal trainers (google Britney Spears and Madonna) in an effort to keep their fitness plans new and exciting.
Here are some of the things people do to motivate themselves for personal training:
Motivating Yourself For Personal Training
1.They invite friends or family to join them.
This is what Kelly Osbourne did. After enduring years of being described “chubby” by the media, Kelly finally got herself into personal training, and when she would start feeling bored, she’d get her friends to come with her and do the workouts with her.
Kate Hudson took on a grueling 6 hours a day fitness plan which included jogging with her husband or cycling with her mom and her mom’s partner, Kurt Russell.
2. The reward themselves.
Britney Spears was recently photographed with a bag of KFC chicken after a successful photo shoot with Shape Magazine. The pop princess, who had to battle out the weight through a very strict diet and heavy workout routines to look as amazing as she does now, rewarded herself with breading-rich fastfood chicken.
3. They blog about it.
The thing about blogging about your personal journey in fitness is that it makes you accountable to your blog followers. There is a certain sense of responsibility for your health and your weight loss, so giving up on your workouts will not be an easy thing to do.
4. They choose fun workouts.
With a variety of fitness classes available, it’s impossible not to find one that suits your taste and needs.
There’s Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, bodybuilding, hip hop, circuit training, boxfit, sports, bootcamps, and the list goes on and on and on.
Enjoyment is one of the keys to sticking to a fitness plan. When you’re enjoying what you’re doing, you will want to come back again.
5. They hire well-known personal trainers.
Hiring personal trainers can get costly but people do it because the idea of having to answer to someone gives them that feeling of their workouts being “official”. They operate on a somewhat “corporate-like” perspective of treating it as they would their jobs. Going to workout regardless of how they feel about it.
Some people are into competitions. Their motivations come from the possibility of winning or placing as an acknowledgment of their hard work.
Here’s an article on Grimsby Telegraph:
Competition As A Motivation For Personal Training
Rich McKeating, who recently ran a boot camp to raise money for Dove House Hospice, is now training Rob Nikolay and AndyShoresfor a personal trainer competition.
If Rich successfully trains up the two men in 1one week, he could be featured in the national magazine.
Rich said: “Both clients are motivated by the thought that, in a few months, they will be in Men’s Health in just their boxer shorts.
Whatever works for you, do it. Personal training will do you good, in the long run, anyway. The best motivation, though, should be knowing that on top of looking good, you are healthy and strong.
