Personal training. Should I hire one?

Personal training. Should I hire one?

We all want to feel better, live longer and look as good as possible. During the last years, society has gone through a lot of changes and we have increase our life expectancy a lot. Science keeps evolving and our quality life is getting better and better. We look for quality instead of quantity when it refers to health. We are “bombed” with new super foods, workouts, magic diets and miracle pills. Most of the clients that I have prepared during my career have had very particular purposes. Some of them wanted to get bigger and stronger, some others wanted to become thinner and slimmer. Each individual has their own needs, times and limitations and we are very conscious of this, adapting our experience and knowledge to suit.

Shaping your health and your body is a matter of several different approaches and habits, combining exercise, nutrition, rest, daily habits and genetics. Do you know about this? Do you think you can control all this or be motivated to do it on your own? Do you have time for this? Maybe you should just trust a professional and let them do what they have been studying during many years and let them take care of you. This are some of the aspects that a personal trainer can arrange for you.

  • Nutrition
  • Breathing exercise
  • Specific training/workout
  • Measuring the evolution
  • Empowering creative thinking
  • Rewarding yourself
  • Motivation
  • Have fun

Health is a combination of many aspects in life. It is mainly about adaptation. It is not only about eating properly, suffering in the gym or not consuming certain substances. Health is about rewarding yourself, giving your body what it needs, being able to express yourself without fear. Moving your structure in many different ways to stimulate the energy and your attitude will become more positive and relaxed. Playing, stretching, creating, exercising and other ways to wake up the body and learn how to concentrate and focus. This creates different interconnections in your brain that gives you physical and mental skills to become more balanced, peaceful and vital.

As the World Health Organization describes Health: “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
