Benefits of Training with a Strength Coach

Whether you're just starting out with a workout routine or you're ready to take your fitness to the next level, hiring a strength coach may be the right move for you. A certified strength trainer can help you create and implement safe, effective exercise programs – including strength training –to reach your fitness goals.

Strength training can benefit your heart, balance, bones, and muscles, while also helping you to either lose or maintain weight. Also known as weight resistance training, these workouts are designed to help improve your muscle strength and overall fitness by working a specific muscle or muscle group with free weights, weight machines, bands, or even your own body weight.

Combining the benefits of strength training with the advantages of working with a strength trainer can help you reach your fitness and health goals faster. Here are a few of the top reasons why you should strength train with a strength coach:

Help with Goal Setting

Setting health goals is important, but sometimes it can be helpful to get a little guidance on what's realistic and attainable. A strength trainer can help you set these goals based on your experience and abilities, and where you hope to be in the future. Your trainer will help you set both short- and long-term goals and create a plan to reach them.

Accountability

It can be tough to force yourself to maintain a workout routine. Some days, you just may not feel like it. While it's good to have rest days, working with a strength coach can give you the motivation you need to get your workout in. Whether you're working out with the trainer virtually or in person, or simply need to check in and report on your workout, having someone to be accountable to can help get you moving even when you don't want to.

Tailored Workouts

There are dozens, maybe hundreds, of ways you can strength train, with different moves and equipment working various muscles in the body. Sometimes, it can be difficult knowing which moves are right for your body and goals, and you may not even know where to start.

Strength coaches can help show you the benefits of strength training, even without using heavy weights, and tailor your workouts to your body, fitness level, and goals. This helps ensure you're doing the right moves with the right resistance that will get you to where you want to be.

Variety

Completing the same exercises over and over can get boring and make them more difficult to stick to over time. Working with a trainer can help you learn exercises you may have never done before, would never have attempted on your own, or challenge you in different ways. Not only does this prevent boredom, but it also keeps you from hitting a plateau. Your strength and conditioning trainer can help change up your strength training routine, working different muscle groups and using a variety of equipment to keep it fresh.

Less Pain and Reduced Injury Risk

Strength training can often lead to sore muscles. However, by working with a strength and conditioning trainer, you'll be pushed just enough to get a good workout, but not too hard to injure yourself or damage your body. Strength trainers can also help you prevent injury by teaching you the proper way to exercise and use different types of equipment.

 Plus, if you do have an injury, they can help modify your exercises to get you back to normal faster.

Improved Mood

Strength training isn't just good for your body, but it's also great for your brain. Strength training increases endorphins which can help boost your mood and has a greater positive effect on the brain than other types of workouts. Strength training can also help you sleep better, which will have you feeling refreshed each day.

Working with a strength coach to develop a consistent strength training routine can help you reduce stress and feel better mentally.

Challenge

Your strength and conditioning coach will help push you to your limits safely and effectively. They can also engage in the workout with you as a workout partner, adding competition to your workouts. They can even help you train for competitive events. Strength coaches can help you find different ways to challenge yourself. Plus, it's tough to slack off when you have a trainer standing by you pushing for one more rep.

Faster Results

When you're training on your own, it's easy to get distracted, give up on the last few reps, skip workouts, or not push yourself. Or, perhaps all of the equipment or the gym environment is overwhelming, so you power through a quick workout just to say you did it. Working with a strength coach can help solve this problem. They keep you focused on the workout, create a routine that you're comfortable with and will give you results, and push you to reach your goals. They help you stay on track with the most effective exercises where you'll see results faster.
