Enjoy The Benefits of Getting Personal Training

Enjoy The Benefits of Getting Personal Training
As people continue to look for ways to get in shape, many explore the benefits of personal training. A personal trainer can provide certain benefits that may make the difference between a successful exercise plan and an unsuccessful one.
One of the biggest obstacles in any training program is motivation. It is not always easy to find the push needed to go exercise on a regular basis. Having a personal trainer can provide you with both structure and accountability; two very important parts of an exercise plan.

Working with a personal trainer provides an advantage when it comes to efficiency as well. It can be difficult to find time in a busy routine for exercise, and a trainer can help you focus your efforts so you are getting the maximum result for your efforts in the minimum amount of time.
 If you have any recent injuries or chronic health problems you are trying to accommodate, having a professional help you design a safe and efficient program makes a huge impact. They can also be beneficial if you are trying to improve your performance in a specific sport. Personal trainers have spent time studying physiology, athletic training, or similar fields and know how to apply that knowledge to suit individual needs.
If you are fairly new to exercising, using a trainer is a great way to become familiar with different types of exercise equipment and learn how to use them safely. Your trainer will also teach you the proper form to use when lifting weights and educate you on how you can avoid injury. Becoming injured early in a workout program can be very discouraging. By working with a trainer, you will learn safe methods of achieving your fitness goals.

5 Tips For More Personal Training Sales

5 Tips For More Personal Training Sales
One of the biggest mistakes personal trainers make is paying little if any attention to their closing percentage for sales. They work hard on getting their website up and running. They send out postcards and hold seminars - all in the hopes of generating leads. But the real name of the game is turning those leads into high paying clients.
Do you know what percentage of prospects you convert into personal training clients?
Don't guess.
Do you know the exact number?
If you don't - start tracking that TODAY!
Only then can you test other approaches in your quest to close more prospects and know if the changes you made are paying off.
Once you start tracking your numbers, here are 5 tips you can use to increase your closing percentage sales:

1. Define Your Uniqueness. You have to let prospects know EXACTLY why they should do business with you instead of the personal trainer at 24 Hour Fitness, join Curves, enroll in Weight Watchers or buy the Ab Lounger. Saying you get results isn't enough. Do you think your personal training competitors say they don't'?
2. Have Social Proof. If you have a studio, put up a 'Wall of Fame.' If you work in a club or in homes, create a personal training testimonial book. Use testimonials in your marketing so prospects are pre-sold. Help people feel confident that you are the solution to their problem(s) by showing them you were already the solution to other people problems that might have been similar.
3. Use a script. Once you find the best way to sell your service, why change it? You don't necessarily have to say the same thing word for word - prospects are all different. But have a scripted format that you follow with a logical sequence of questions that get the prospect talking.
4. Shut Up. Let the prospect do 75% of the talking. Ask lots of open ended questions and let the prospect reveal their 'pain' to you.
5. Sell on Value. Not price. People want a good deal and to be treated fairly - but they don't mind paying for results (you do get great results, right?) If you're the cheapest personal training alternative - raise your prices or look in the mirror and ask why you aren't worth more. Once you recognize the value you deliver - then raise your prices.






How to Get the Most Out of Personal Training

How to Get the Most Out of Personal Training
Most people are happy have a professional to cut their hair, write legal documents or give them dental check ups, but often don't apply the same logic, get some professional help, to their health and fitness. Having a Personal Trainer used to be the preserve of movie stars and the super-rich, but now it's a more affordable and easily accessible way of losing weight, toning up and learning new exercises. More importantly, it's fun.
 If you don't have time to visit the gym for hours, or are bored with the same routine, you can be personally coached to develop the shape you want, lose fat, sculpt your physique, increase stamina and improve health and flexibility.
Here at Body Solutions in West Kirby, our team of professional, qualified and highly experienced trainers work with clients on a one to one basis so get they most out of well-managed and structured programmes. You need variety in your training because different training is the best training. It's all about trying new exercises and different routines whilst still maintaining a structure so progression can be visually followed. Take your last session, for example, that was a shock to the body? This is what we want to achieve your goals. If we did that same session each time you came, then the body will start to get used to this and you hit a plateau in your training. We want to keep your heart-rate raised and vary the training so the body never knows a comfort zone. So, at Body Solutions, we keep the programme simple so there is plenty of room for variation.
To lose body fat whilst maintaining muscle mass you need to follow a few basic principles. Everybody is unique and what works for one person may not work for another but the following advice works for the masses (give or take a few!). It's important to get the adequate training, rest and nutrition. When you feel hungry it's already too late, meaning that your body is not burning fat but is using the next available source for energy....Your own muscle tissue. 
Remember, most of the fat burning doesn't take place during training. It takes place afterward, that night and the day after. This is what we call the after burn. This is why very active people burn more fat efficiently because they are always in the after burn effect. It is also important to incorporate resistance training to maintain muscle mass because the more muscle we have, the better we metabolite fat. More often than not, people concentrate on their cardio and avoid the weights, thinking it will just bulk them up. Not so.
 In the gym the body can only last around 45 minutes to an hour on its glycogen stores. Training for any longer will just cause the body to start using its own muscle tissue as an energy which totally goes against what we are trying to do. Training increases the blood flow to the muscles and all the capillaries dilate (vasodilation). This means that after training it is important to get vital nutrients like protein and carbohydrates into our system as this is the best time for optimum absorption and muscle repair and growth can start.










The Top Five Benefits of Personal Training

The Top Five Benefits of Personal Training
1. Expert Instruction: One of the biggest benefits of working with a personal trainer is the ability to receive expert instruction on what is necessary for an individual to achieve their fitness goals. A certified trainer can (and will) educate their clients about fat loss, nutrition, exercise and other matters related to weight loss. Each of the aforementioned are extremely helpful. 
Many individuals are unable to lose weight on their own or if they manage to, are unable to maintain the weight they've lost. This can start a person down a dangerous road of yo-yo weight loss. A personal trainer can be the difference maker in attaining and also maintaining ones weight and fitness goals.
2. Speedier Results: Because personal trainers are taught to understand what is necessary to help individuals lose weight, they are well equipped to dispense advice that will help speed up the weight loss process. Trainers often have insider secrets, involving exercise, fitness and diet that the average person does not. In addition, trainers know how to safely prescribe a fitness plan that is specific to each client taking into account any past or present health conditions or injuries. Those attempting to lose weight would be wise to take advantage of it.
3. Accountability: People often fail to meet their weight loss goals because of a lack of accountability. If an individual knows that they will have to answer tough questions, regarding their eating habits and fitness from their trainer each week, they are considerably less likely to cheat.
4. Motivation: In addition to a lack of accountability, a lack of motivation is one of the primary reasons why people fail in their weight loss efforts. Personal trainers help to provide a level and intensity of motivation that is often lacking in a person's day-to-day life.
5. Tailor Made Program: Trainers are able to create tailor-made programs for their clients. They will typically develop a WOD (workout of the day) for their clients that help them successfully target their problem areas. For some clients, a CrossFit regimen will be appropriate. For others it will not be. 
A qualified trainer will be able to determine what type of workout regimen is best for their clients. Working with a personal trainer can be extremely beneficial. Individuals that do will enjoy expert instruction and speedier results. They will also receive a tailor-made program that meets their specific needs. Accountability and motivation are two additional benefits.






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.
