There are many forms of training and there are many places to go to train. Everyone is different – some clients like working in a group capacity, others like classes or some prefer 1 to 1 training in a private studio.
Below are 6 reasons why the latter might just be for you.
1)PRIVATE – The majority of people wanting to start at the gym or PT sessions often lack confidence, which holds them back from training. With a studio gym, it’s just you and your personal trainer, who isn’t there to judge, but to help.
2)PERSONAL – Maybe you’re not a fan of crowded locations or aren’t comfortable communicating with lots of people on a regular basis, like you often have to do in most gyms. This may cause unwanted stress and so a private, personal studio could help you feel more at ease. This kind of location could not only be an excellent choice for your physical development but also importantly for your personal development. The key is for your PT to be able to make you feel comfortable to get the most out of you and the session.
3)ENVIRONMENT – Environment refers back to the first point, if you are in a positive environment then you are more likely to have positive results because you are training hard. This is due to you being in this positive environment which is helping you to create a positive mindset.
4)LOW KEY – Not everyone has a supportive family who will back you every step of the way. Sometimes a smart remark can really knock your confidence without your family members realising. One of my clients liked training with me because I wasn’t located in the middle of town, which was a huge advantage to her as she didn’t want people to see her training (I could write an article alone on why this is morally wrong but I shall leave that for another day!). But back to the family aspect of this story, when she was training with me she wouldn’t tell her family she had a personal trainer because of their negative responses and comments like, ‘you are just wasting your money with a personal trainer’ and so on. She was also being told that she was perfectly healthy and didn’t need to fix her diet which was interesting considering we found her to be in the obese category…
5)THE QUALITY OF TRAINING – In a private studio, your personal trainer will know exactly what is at their disposal so the training should be pinpoint to the client’s needs. In more commercial gyms trainers may have to divert from their session plans for a number of reasons, perhaps due to the area or equipment being occupied, however this is not the case with a private studio environment.
6)FOCUSED – When training you have no unwanted distractions like someone grunting after completing a mammoth deadlift. There is more peace and tranquillity in this environment where you can focus on the task at hand and ensure you get the job done. When training it’s all about you and since you don’t see anyone else training you are not creating unnecessary benchmarks e.g. Big Dave over there is squatting with 4 plates on each side so I need to be doing that too. You are focusing on what matters to you and your own development; keeping training personal.
