The Benefits and Considerations of In Home Personal Training

The Benefits and Considerations of In Home Personal Training
There are many things to consider when choosing a personal trainer for fitness, martial arts, or both. One of the many considerations is having a personal trainer come to your home to take you through a workout. There are many benefits to having an in home trainer, but there is also some things for you to consider.
One of the benefits is the convenience. Think about it, no driving to and from the gym or studio, which also means no driving in traffic. No getting in your car sweaty, smelly, and dirty, in fact you can run right up stairs and take a shower in your own bathroom. That's right, no more grimy locker room showers. Have a home office? How great would it be to respond to email, take important phone calls, or check stock quotes in between exercises or techniques?
Having a personal trainer come to your home also gives you the convenience of time. The drive to and from the gym can take 10, 20, 30, sometimes 60 minutes out of your day. Those are precious minutes that can be put to good use by stay at home moms who are running around all over the place for the family.
In home trainers are also great for people who like privacy and/or anonymity. There are those among us who at times prefer not to be in the eye of the public and there are others who would just like to keep their training and exercise regiment private.
The type of equipment you need in your home depends on the type of workout you plan on doing. There are some training regiments that need very little in the way of equipment and your trainer may even be able to bring these items with him/her. But if you are looking for a workout using weights and machines you may have to have a room dedicated strictly to exercise.
Now the price of having a trainer come to your home varies. In general, in home or at home personal trainers are more expensive then trainers who work exclusively out of a gym, studio, or dojo. The reason is opportunity cost. A trainer who works out of a gym can schedule an appointment directly before and after yours. But a trainer out on the road must factor in travel time to and from your home as an opportunity cost he/she missed. They must also factor in gas, insurance, and wear and tear on their vehicle.
Prices can range from $75.00 to $500.00 per hour depending on the experience of the trainer, the uniqueness of his/her program, and the number of people he/she might have to handle in that hour (if you workout with other family members or friends).
Having an in home personal training program is a very convenient luxury if you can afford it.
 You can stay in shape, be more productive in other areas of your life, and enjoy a healthy activity in the beautiful home you've created.

Personal Training and You

Personal Training and You
Another New Year has started and all those New Years resolutions for getting to the gym, losing weight and getting fit have come and gone right? Relax. This is perfectly normal and it happens to 99% of people who make those promises. 
Most people start each New Year with the very best of intentions. They want to get fit and lose those unwanted pounds so they get their shiny new gym membership card and promise that they'll go to the gym at least 3 times per week.
What happens to most people is they go to the gym, spend a few minutes on each of the machines they like the look of, head to the sauna and then go home feeling a bit deflated. There's no structure to what they're doing and because of this they consistently fail to achieve any kind of results. Definitely not the results they were expecting when they joined that expensive gym. And this is where the New Years resolution dies - the point of feeling like a failure. That you'll never be good enough.
What will make the difference to your health and fitness goals is a personal trainer. Your body is an engine and a personal trainer can help you fine tune its performance so that you get the most from it.
But why would you want to use a personal trainer? Aren't they're just for celebrities and rich folks?
Not at all and you'd be surprised at just how many of your friends are using personal trainers but keeping it a total secret!
Hiring a personal trainer isn't as expensive as you might think - it's actually well within the reach of the vast majority of people. As for the "Why would I need a personal trainer" a good personal trainer provides you with a workout plan customized just for you. This ensures that you're targeting the areas of your body that need the most work instead of just randomly working on different muscle groups or cardio fitness routines. They simply make sure you get the best results for the amount of effort you put in to your workouts.
Working with a personal trainer is a totally different experience to just using the gym and once you've worked out with one you'll notice this almost straight away. The fact that you have somebody there to push you when you feel like quitting can and does make all the difference to your workout sessions.
Good personal training goes beyond just the mere physical side of things though. Working towards, achieving and maintaining fitness and weight loss goals is as much a mental process as it is a physical one. No you can't think yourself fit or thin but if you have mental blocks and/or body-image issues it can make achieving these goals so much tougher for you. Having a personal trainer helps you overcome these mental barriers and helps you push yourself to new levels of fitness and personal excellence.
So what does each training session involve? The first meeting you have is to get a baseline for your fitness and weight levels and to get to know each other. Having a good relationship with your trainer is as important to the trainer as it is to you. Once your fitness and weight baseline have been set they'll come up with a personalized training plan for you. From there on in it's just a matter of scheduling your training sessions and enjoying the process of crafting that body you've always wanted.
The true goal of personal training is to give structure to your training, to push you and to help you establish and maintain best practices in terms of your physical and mental well-being. And once you've started down this road folks you're going to be amazed at the results you see in just a few short weeks of working out.

Top 4 Benefits for Personal Training

Top 4 Benefits for Personal Training
The initial costs of personal training can be somewhat dismaying, but it will be more than likely offset by the benefits listed below. You are guaranteed to enjoy each and every advantage listed here if and when you get your own fitness trainer.
Motivation
Professional fitness trainers have been schooled and trained to work with all types of personalities and consequently determine the ideal approach to use in order to keep them motivated to work out. Even if you feel you do not have the necessary self-discipline or willpower to keep to your diet and exercise plan, your fitness trainer will help ensure that you nonetheless stick to it - and achieve your goals in the end.
Also, the fact that you have already paid for your trainer's services should at the very least motivate you to get your money's worth even for just a session or two.
Specialized training
You can also ensure that you are working with a personal trainer who has the necessary expertise in the type of workout you are interested in, regardless of whether it has to do with weight lifting, aerobic exercise, or something else. If it makes you feel any better, you can also look for those with a proven track record in women's fitness or men's fitness.
Ultimately, the key thing to remember here is that you should work out with a personal trainer whose skills and competence you trust and respect - enough to inspire you to keep going.
Customized workouts
This is personal training, after all, and as such you can expect to get what you want when and where you want it and how you want it.
Basically, personal training programs begin with a talk between you and your trainer so that the latter could be informed about your fitness goals. Expect, however, your trainer to add a few more goals of his own and for you to achieve. Those additional tasks may seem like extra work but they are always intended to keep you healthy and fit. As such, you shouldn't mind adding them to your goal list.
Also, keep in mind that personal trainers are supposed to work around your schedule and not the opposite. You therefore have the power and the right to ask your personal trainer to work out with you at your preferred time and place. Of course, do expect to pay extra - or have a more difficult time finding a willing trainer to work with you - if your preferred workout schedule happens to be unconventional.
Safety
Exercise can be fun and challenging in a good way, but it can also pose a threat to your own health and lead to unwanted injuries if you are unsure about the proper ways to go about it. Thankfully, the presence of your professional trainer will ensure that no such incidents would take place during your workout.With these four benefits, you've hopefully realized just how much a help personal training can be.

Top 6 Tips in Creating a Home Gym to Perform Personal Training From Home

Top 6 Tips in Creating a Home Gym to Perform Personal Training From Home
After deciding to get a professional who offers personal training from home services, you are now ready to convert a space in your home into your exercise den. With a fully equipped home gym, it will be easier for you to stay committed to your workouts even during the times when you are not with your trainer.
Factors to Consider in Creating a Home Gym
Here are the things that you have to think about when designing the space, where you will work out with the professional who will render personal training from home services.

1. Choose the kind of room, which is not that big or small. The size must be sufficient for you and your trainer to be able to move freely and comfortably even after the equipment have been set up. If you don't have an available room that can be converted into a home gym permanently, then choose the space that you will always use whenever your trainer comes. You can keep your gears when not in session and arrange these again when it is time for your workout.
For the latter, make sure that you have allotted a storage area for your equipment to be kept safe when not in use.
2. What are the equipment that you will need for this project? You may want to talk first with your trainer about this. The equipment that you need will depend on the fitness programs that they have designed for you. The programs will depend on the assessment that they will perform at your first meeting.
You can already buy the basic fitness equipment, such as an exercise mat, dumbbells and other materials that you can use for weight-training purposes. You can also buy weighing scale, weight training bench and a full-length mirror.

3. Make sure that the room is safe and convenient. It must have low humidity levels, with an ideal temperature of 65 to 70 Fahrenheit. Air circulation must be observed, since you will be involved in movements that will make you sweat a lot. You would not want to get suffocated in a room that smells like sweat all the time.
4. The flooring must be safe, since you will be involved in many physical activities. As much as possible, do not use floor rugs or concrete flooring, since these may be slippery and hazardous at the same time. You must choose the kind of flooring that can absorb impact as you proceed with your exercises along with the one who will render personal training from home services.

5. The room must be kept away from distractions, especially at times when you are in training sessions. You have to devise arrangements on how to answer the door or phone when you are working out, without consuming too much of your time. The room must also not be accessible to your kids or pets, as they may get injured or cause injury when they suddenly appear in the midst of your training session.
6. In order to easily implement your plans in creating a home gym, you must know from the start the amount that you are willing to allot for this project.

The Six Human Needs - Now Discover Your Strength And Improve Your Weight Training Plan

The Six Human Needs - Now Discover Your Strength And Improve Your Weight Training Plan
One of the interesting side benefits of creating the Metroflex Gym e-book has been in-depth conversations with many people across the United States in the bodybuilding industry. During my conversations with many in the bodybuilding world several themes recurred:
1) Financial scarcity. Many bodybuilders bring a fundamental lack of knowledge about finances, personal financial planning, setting up businesses, etc. This will be addressed in special reports in the upcoming weeks.
2) Politics. Many said that the sports, bodybuilding and figure in particular, are extremely "political." Some feel that an unfavorable placement in a bodybuilding show hurt them financially. If any of their claims are true, there are still ways to improve the odds of achieving success in the face of less-than-stellar judging. The outcome of many professional sports games have been affected by politics and less-than-stellar refereeing, and there are ways to win in the face of such adversity.
3) Lack of education in thinking like a business. If bodybuilders craves financial reward & fame for their efforts, they have to understand how the money is earned. There are ways to generate income from one's involvement in the industry; and to obtain it you must think about your involvement in the business.
4) Involvement with people who aren't pursuing excellence. This is a BIG one!! Paul Brodeur, a former world champion powerlifter and the man who first introduced me to Metroflex Gym (and trained with Brian over the years), once told me that all great champions do what they can to control their environments. This is a difficult task, no doubt, and I oftentimes wish I had listened to his guidance more closely! In pursuing your dreams, this may be a challenge for you as well. If so, I will offer some of the things that helped me begin to master my environment and you are welcome to use them if you find them helpful.
Metroflex Gym wants you to have as many of the "pieces of the puzzle" as possible; and we want to offer you anything we can to help you put those pieces together. Sometimes this requires that you do "Sets & Reps" for the muscle many of you don't want to exercise: your brain!
In some psychology circles there is a model based on what are called the "Six Human Needs":
1) Security (all aspects) 
2) Variety 
3) Love and Connection 
4) Significance (Attention) 
5) Growth 
6) Contribution
While this model can be disputed, I believe that it is an easy-to-remember model and it could be useful to you. Assuming that you can at least agree with the model for this article, we want you to benefit from reading the e-book and bonus e-books because they address the six needs in these ways:
1) Security. We want you to have information which has worked for the last twenty years and will work for at least the next twenty! Undoubtedly you will find things which work for you which we may not have mentioned. If so, simply let us know so that we can test it out and then let the rest of the Metroflex Gym family know about it!
2) Variety. There are so many fun aspects to weight training & exercise that you will have variety for the rest of your lives. Different training partners, training routines (as outlined in the books), competitions, increased energy to spend with family & friends, and meeting interesting people are just the beginning of the adventures you can have with weight training.
3) Love & Connection. We want you to be in the best shape possible so that you have health, vitality, and energy for the people you love and the activities about which you are passionate.
4) Significance & Attention. While the bonus book on free publicity can help you with this, we want you to use weight training to help you get the significance you desire. Whether you want a better physique to be more attractive, win a contest or a championship, get photographed by the magazines, or simply increase your energy levels and gain newfound respect from your peers we want you to benefit.
5) Growth. Apart from growing your lean muscle mass, we want you to grow as a person. Weight training is a wonderful discipline and has helped many people regain direction in their lives due to the discipline required.
6) Contribution. With so much confusion out there, we want to give you the best knowledge we have so that you can be an example for others and make their lives better by your efforts.
