Should I Hire a personal trainer?

10 Reasons to Hire a Personal Trainer

By | Personal Training Vancouver, resistance training

There are almost too many reasons to hire a personal trainer. Not only do they help you to identify, plan for, and reach your health and wellness targets, but they are literally qualified to do it! Regardless of whether you’re trying to lose weight, improve your fitness, or just stay active in a fun and friendly environment, we’ve put together the most important reasons to have a personal trainer on your side. 

1. Personal Trainers Keep You Accountable

It’s easy to make excuses when it comes to doing things for ourselves, even if we know they’re good for us. However, if you hire a personal trainer, you have an instant accountability partner. For the majority of us, letting ourselves down is something we can get away with, but letting someone else down is out of the question. 

The journey to a healthier you can only happen with real, measurable goals. A personal trainer is a perfect partner to help you not only recognize these goals but can also guide you to continue to re-set them. 

2. Personal Trainers Are Qualified

There’s a reason you don’t ask your doctor how to cook. They aren’t the right person for the job, nor are they qualified to teach you. A personal trainer, on the other hand, is exactly that. Whilst there are plenty of fake online personal trainers (many of which were just blessed with good genetics), hiring a real personal trainer ensures that you are receiving real, qualified information. 

Not only that, but recent research has confirmed that hiring a personal trainer is the fastest, and safest, way to achieve your health and wellness goals. The research has also confirmed that using a personal trainer can actually change your opinion of, and attitude towards, health and wellness. 

3. Personal Trainers Educate and Motivate

One of the biggest barriers to entry when stepping into a gym is not knowing what to do, or how to do it. When you hire a personal trainer, however, you are also employing all of their knowledge and expertise to help you understand why to do something, as well as how. They are literally trained to teach you how to exercise properly, and in a targeted way depending on your goals and circumstances. 

Put simply, if you don’t know which exercises are the most effective for the goals you have, you are unlikely to achieve them. But it isn’t just about which exercises to perform. Personal trainers are also qualified to teach you how to perform them properly. Not only does it reduce your risk of injury, but you are also better equipped to continue your health and fitness journey outside of the gym.

4. Customizable Plans, for Individual Circumstances

No two people are the same, and therefore no two workout plans should be the same. Whilst you may ‘save’ money by using generic online programs, they are not designed specifically for your needs, or your capabilities. 

When you hire a personal trainer you are actually hiring a health and wellness coach. Your plans and programs are not solely about physical exertion. Rather, they encompass everything it means to be healthy, including nutrition, body alignment, and aspects of mental health which can lead to a happier and healthier you. 

5. Maximise Your Time in the Gym

When you hire a personal trainer, you are committing to your time inside the gym. With a real and specific goal in mind, you will no longer have to wander around wondering what to do, or half-heartedly completing a set in between texting your friends. 

By training more efficiently and effectively, you’ll maximise your time in the gym, and maximize your results. 

6. New Friends and New Skills 

Your personal trainer isn’t just an accountability buddy. They become both your friend and confidant. It’s important to take into account the facets of your life which may or may not assist you in your health and fitness journey.

For example, does stress at work lead you to comfort eating? Do you work regular hours? Are you getting enough rest? Whilst your personal trainer is there to help you with measurable results, in many cases, they can actually become a stand-in therapist and friend that you can rely on.

Add to that the fact that you’ll be learning new, lifelong skills, and hiring a personal trainer becomes a bit of a no-brainer!

7. Personal Trainers Work in With Your Schedule

We all live busy lives. But one of the best things about having your own personal trainer is flexibility! Personal trainers understand that you need to work, or look after the kids, and can establish the times that suit you best. 

At Turnfit, we also have a number of locations across Vancouver. With our qualified team on call and ready to work in with your schedule, it means you don’t have to sacrifice ‘me time’ to receive all of the benefits that a personal training session can provide.

8. Develop Better Habits

We all slip into bad habits sometimes, but those behaviours can become reinforced without us being conscious of their effects. If you’re looking for even more reasons to hire a personal trainer, the opportunity to rethink and redesign your habits is one of the most important! 

This isn’t just about your habits in the gym. It’s about changing the way you act and perceive your own health, building consistency into your routine, and cultivating better thought patterns to decrease stress.

9. Personal Trainers Are Inexpensive!

Everyone is willing to spend money on a night out, but they hesitate to spend when it’s going to benefit their health. So we ask these questions:

  • What is a lifetime of feeling good worth to you? 
  • If you could learn the skills, develop the right habits, and build the intrinsic motivation to pursue a healthier version of yourself- why wouldn’t you take that opportunity? 
  • If you can take advantage of that opportunity, with the best personal trainers in Vancouver, for less than a night out, isn’t that worth at least considering it? 

Many people assume that when you hire a personal trainer, you’re literally paying for someone to walk (or yell) you through a workout. What you’re actually paying for is years of accumulated expertise in health, fitness, and personal wellness. All of these are important factors, but the ultimate motivation- or at least the first step- has to come from you.

10. Learn lifelong skills 

A personal trainer can help you to build and develop the skills you need to be successful in all walks of life. From setting and realising your goals to creating new and better habits and thought patterns, when you hire a personal trainer you’re getting more than just a fitness coach.

The best part? Your personal trainer is actually working hard to equip you with the knowledge and skills so that you can carry on without them! 

Should I Hire a Personal Trainer?

If you’re still unsure whether to hire a personal trainer, reach out and connect with us. At Turnfit personal trainers, we have decades of experience in personal training, rehabilitation, sport-specific training and more. 

We can also help you to get started with a no-obligation, free health and wellness assessment to see if personal training is the right fit for you. With a range of locations across Vancouver, we’re also able to work in with you, to make sure that you get the absolute best treatment at a time that suits you best.

Research Confirmed: Using Personal Trainer is Most Effective

By | HIIT Workout, Meditation, mental health, Mindset, Nutrition, online personal training, Personal Training Vancouver

We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with fad diets, pills, quick fixes and new trends. Not only are these poorly researched and overhyped, the vast majority never manage to consider that we are all different. Every one of us has unique needs, goals and understandings of our health and fitness. This means that to even have the hope of achieving these goals we’re going to need real, individual help. Now, research has confirmed that using a real, qualified personal trainer is the fastest and most effective way to get there!

The Difference Is Personal

Your attention- and by default your time, energy and money- is the biggest commodity available today. With it, you can be persuaded into just about anything, and the ‘phones’ that we are all addicted to are designed to do exactly that. For the sake of this article, however, we’ll focus on our specialty- health and wellness. 

When it comes to our health, it can be hard to see the benefits of spending your time and money to improve it, as these things are difficult to measure (at least int he short term). Neurochemically, it is much easier for us to go for the activity which releases high amounts of dopamine, such as video gaming or Facebook scrolling than it is to be outside and go for a run. 

If/when you finally get so bored of those activities that you actually make the move to do something, the first port of call for most people is the “free” stuff. YouTube videos, Instagram trainers, whatever the first result on google for “free workout program” happens to be.

The issue with this is two-fold:

woman working out with resistance band1. In 99% of the cases, you’re either receiving advice from someone who is completely unqualified, or it’s a one-size-fits-all solution. For some people, that isn’t a problem. They’re happy to ‘dip a toe’ into the workout world, and see if it’s for them. However, using unqualified advice can cause you to develop poor habits, increase your rate of injury, and slow your rates of recovery. Doctor’s train for years to be able to prescribe you medicine, and so do personal trainers! It just happens our medicine comes as a lifestyle change, not a quick fix.

In addition, the concept of ‘dipping a toe’ is usually the exact same mental behaviour that will see you give up after a few days. Setting up new habits and fitness regimes is not an easy task, and it’s made even by trying to do it alone. Most people don’t even make it two weeks, which we see with every new year’s resolution. It’s the same as the ‘Monday effect,’ where motivations are high at the start of the week and taper off by Wednesday.

2. With this minimalised and individual training mindset, most people are never going to see a result. Optimising your health and fitness is as much a mental game as it is physical, and it is not a short term thing. There are a plethora of amazing free resources available if you know where to look, but staying motivated, and accountable is HARD WORK.

The key to making real, lasting changes in your life, particularly where your health and fitness is involved, is in the ‘little’ wins. Small improvements each week not only lead to drastic physical changes, but they can also help to improve your mindset, motivation, outlook, energy, and attitude towards your health and wellness. 

Unless you’re incredibly disciplined, the only way to continue to see these ‘wins’ is in constantly redesigning your health and fitness regime to suit your personal needs and circumstances- something that the ‘free’ stuff doesn’t account for. 

Science Confirms Personal Trainers Are the Key to Results

Before we get too far, we want to temper this research a bit. First, it’s important to understand that this research is based on real, qualified personal trainers and training.  Second, in understanding the results, we’ll also look at why personal trainers are more effective, compared to training by yourself. Contrary to popular belief- it is NOT just because you have a workout buddy. So without further ado, let’s look at some of the numbers:

1. Mclaran et al (2003) showed that using a personal trainer can actually change your opinion of, and attitude towards, health and wellness. This is big, as it shows that personal training isn’t just about the fitness, it also incorporates and improves mental states of wellbeing and physical activity. Based on a 10-week study, the research took into account the participant’s current levels of fitness and categorized them accordingly.

At the end of the 10-week personal training program, a huge 60% had moved up at least one category stage, and an additional 13% two stages. It is interesting to note that these participants (73%) initially started in the second group (contemplation) before progressing higher.

“For the days that they met together, the client and trainer had targeted discussions on problem-solving techniques such as determining the Benefits of Physical Activity, Barriers/Obstacles, Support System Recruitment, Goal Setting and Relapse Prevention in addition to providing specific suggestions for the other exercise days during the week.”

This study concluded that:

  • One-on-one personal training is an effective method for changing attitudes towards physical activity, and thereby increases the amount of physical activity undertaken.
  • Without tailored workout regimes and accountability, the exercise outcomes/progressions were limited.
  • Those who have considered a health/fitness regime but may not have taken the steps to action it stand to get some of the most positive results.

2. A more recent study looked at personal training over self-directed training, whereby researchers used the lean body mass of participants as a measure to determine whether using a qualified personal trainer was advantageous. With significantly higher improvements in the strength and other variables, the study concluded that:

“for the first time in a fitness club setting, members whose training is directed by well qualified personal trainers administering evidence-based training regimens achieve significantly greater improvements in LBM and other dimensions of fitness than members who direct their own training.”

3. Whilst not everyone is training for strength, personal trainers have proven to be effective in this arena as well. Maloof et al and Mazetti et al (2000) showed in two separate studies that having a personal trainer led to ‘significant improvements in strength gains’ in a group setting when compared to a group without a trainer.

What About Online Personal Training?

Whilst these are just some examples of research, the results show that personal trainers do indeed improve and accelerate your results. So what about online personal training?

Conveniently, studies have also been conducted to show the validity, use and effectiveness of personal training from home.

  1. Sykes et al (2007) compared personal training at home and in the gym. The study found that both were as effective as each other when it comes to weight loss, motivation, cardiovascular endurance and discipline.
  2. Similarly, Castro and King (2002) found that the same coaching/fitness training lost no benefits when administered over the phone. It concluded that “home-based, telephone-supervised programs were as effective as a group- or facility-based programs in terms of increased functional capacity and adherence.”
  3. A third study by Kennedy-Armbruster et al also concluded that personal training can reduce overall sedentary (sitting) time by more than 50%, whilst also improving cardiovascular fitness (VO2). This is particularly important right now as many of us are stuck indoors and trying to adjust to a new way of living! 

How Do I Find a Personal Trainer?

Personal trainers spend years achieving their qualifications and honing their skills. In an ordinary year, your local gym or a trusted referral from a friend is usually all that you need to accelerate your training. Now, however, it has become much more difficult to sift through as our attention moves more fully online. Thanks to smartphones you can now access some of the best personal trainers in the country, on-demand, for a fraction of the price. 

With the Turnfit app, you literally have a personal trainer in your pocket, with real-time support, regular updates, fitness tracking and video coaching, we have designed a range of packages to suit your needs. 

For those who are more serious about their training, or have recently lost their trainers due to COVID19, we also have an elite training package. This is for clients who require more focused and personalized training regiments. With regular video coaching calls and completely customised training and nutrition plans, the elite package also includes health and wellness coaching, covering mindfulness and meditation, goal setting and more. 

We also offer FREE health and wellness assessments, and your first month of training is on us. With all of the research pointing to the benefits of personal training and zero cost to get started, you could be a few small steps away from a healthier, happier you. Of course, as personal trainers, we can customise and individualise any plan or workout regime to make sure you are achieving your goals.  

How Can I Join The Turnfit Family?

Turnfit Personal Trainers are offering FREE online boot camps

Getting Cabin Fever? Try Our FREE Online Boot camps!

By | mental health, Mindset, Online boot camps, Personal Training Vancouver

Vancouver is still locked down, and by now most people have exhausted their Netflix screen time. With social isolation now in full effect, it has never been more important to focus on your mental and physical wellbeing. To help everyone get through these tough times, Turnfit personal trainers are offering free online boot camps and mindful practice, as well as a range of free information to keep you updated on everything from mortgages to employment.

Mental Health As a State of Mind

We get it. Staying indoors, somewhat indefinitely, is enough to send most people a little crazy. 2020 is going to be different for all of us, and until we have some clearer direction, we all have to assume that the next few months are going to be much the same. 

BUT. This time at home, this forced time away from the office and our normal routines can also be an opportunity. Not only that, but it is also imperative that we all unite and create new ways to interact and communicate with each other. After all, we are social beings. 

Simple Ways to Captivate Your Mind

For too long, we have relied on distractions like Netflix and Instagram to keep our minds occupied. Whilst those things are still OK to utilize, overdoing it also runs the risk of going a little bit insane. So instead, we’d rather focus on some of the alternatives to keep your mind stimulated:

  • Play
    This can be in any shape or form, but being stuck indoors doesn’t mean you have to cut out all the fun. To maintain your mental health though this should be time away from screens. Boardgames, puzzles, blanket forts, painting, learning instruments, you name it, you now literally have
    all the time in the world to do the things you always ‘wished’ you could do.

 

  • Read.
    We, as a species, literally have all of the information ever created at our fingertips. Anything you want to learn, or to be, has been written down, and most of the good stuff is in books! If you’ve never been a ‘reader,’ now is the time. Not just to maintain this skill, but to learn something new! Keeping your mind stimulated with healthy skills will go a long way to preserving your sanity.

 

  • Mindfulness and meditation.
    Sure, it might feel like you’re doing a lot of sitting around and thinking. But doing it with
    intention, following your breath, calming the mind, these are all components of a healthy mental state. Build and use these skills now to help you to destress and focus your energy where you need it most. Join our socials for free online personal training sessions, including mindful practice and meditation.

 

  • Sleep well.
    This one is imperative to maintaining a healthy state of mind, and sadly with all the screens in our faces, most of us do not get healthy sleep. When we’re out of a normal routine it can become even more difficult to do so. Check out
    this article to learn more.

 

  • Learn to cook (or cook new things!)
    Lockdowns might mean less access to ingredients, or maybe they’ve just given you the time to try new things. Look up some new recipes, get outside your routine, and
    enjoy spending time with the other people in your house. Adding/maintaining micronutrients to your diet will also help you to build and maintain your immune system.

Learning to cook can be a great way to spend time at home!

Physical Activity Is the Key to Sanity

Amongst all the chatter and clutter, there are a few things we need to keep in mind. Even though most of us spend our days at work, there are still certain elements of physical activity attached to that. Whether it’s walking to/from work, a quick gym session afterward, even walking around the office, we’re not entirely sedentary. 

While these lockdowns don’t mean we have to be inside, generally speaking, we’re probably doing a lot more laying about than we usually would. Physical activity is key in this scenario, not just to boost your immune system, but to keep your mind and body in balance.

At Turnfit, we’re offering FREE online boot camps from a range of coaches to help you stay in shape, and stay sane. You do NOT need any gear, workout equipment or prior knowledge to participate. Add to that we have our full suite of online personal training programs available to you as well, which can be used on-demand, with regular updates and new information/plans added all the time. 

We also have our free community page, which we encourage you to follow to access our free online boot camps and classes, and we’re bringing in a whole team of professionals looking to share their time and experiences with you. If you don’t use social media or are trying to steer clear of it at this time, you can also join via our website (please ignore the pricing).

Personal Training in Vancouver Now Available in Historic Downtown Hotel

By | Downtown Vancouver, Mindset, Personal Training Vancouver

With almost 100 years of colorful history, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is an icon of the cities downtown area. With 557 guest rooms, beautifully appointed suites, and more recently a $75 million update, the Hotel offers guests a host of luxury amenities and services.

Now you have more options for personal training in Vancouver- book a session today at the Fairmont Hotel, and take advantage of their luxury amenities!

The History of Hotel Vancouver 

One of Canada’s great railway hotels the original Hotel Vancouver was first established in 1887, and a year later, we saw the opening of the Canadian Pacific Hotel. It was replaced in 1912, and again in 1928, which is the version you can see in downtown Vancouver today. 

The building itself took more than 11 years to complete, as a result of a joint partnership between the Canadian National Railway and the Canadian Pacific Railway. It was officially opened in 1939, by none other than King George VI and Queen Elizabeth while on their royal tour in Canada. 

Fun Fact: the Royals also officially opened Lions Gate Bridge on the same trip, which was built by the Guinness family to gain access to their land- what we now call the North Shore!

At the time of its opening, Vancouver was only home to around 2000 people. It was a working-class area, and the Hotel Vancouver once held huge boilers to provide steam power to surrounding downtown buildings. In the mid 20th century Hotel Vancouver also played host to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporations radio stations.

It has since changed hands and management a number of times, from Pacific Railways to Hilton, and has seen a number of renovations both updating, and then restoring the original features and designs of this chateau inspired hotel. Canadian Pacific Hotels acquired Fairmont in 1999 and changed the name and hotel design to the one you see today- the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. Whilst Fairmont continues to manage the hotel, however, it’s ownership has more recently changed hands again, sold to Larco Enterprise for a cool $180 million in 2015.

Personal Training in Vancouver Just Got a Luxury Upgrade
