In a word yes!
Personal trainers work with you to tailor a workout and an eating plan that is specific to you, not something that’s been generalised based on your gender or your age. They also take into account any injury, illness or health concerns you may have, modifying exercises where possibly to suit your physical abilities not cutting them out completely.
They can also be greatly beneficial if you are training for a particular sport or event such as a marathon. If you’re working towards general health and fitness a personal trainer will be able to work with you to set realistic goals. They will be constant motivation and non-judgemental support while still holding you accountable and making you stick to your program.
Personal trainers come with a wealth of knowledge and can provide you with a fresh perspective on general health and nutrition as well as exercise. They will also be able to teach you how to work out safely. With so many machines and so many different way to exercises its easy to do yourself an injury. A personal trainer will be able to teach you how to use equipment and perform exercises in order to minimise the risk of injury.
