The Truth Behind Personal Training and How to Achieve the Best Fitness Results

Personal Trainer, Eric Landers

Exercise Program and the best prescription to a healthier, stronger, and fitter YOU!

We are not miracle workers. As trainers our job is to know the body, to know how it works and to know how to make it work. By giving an exercise program we are giving the prescription to a healthier, stronger, and fitter individual. But like any prescription if it is not taken, especially in the correct doses, it will not result in the desired effect.

There are several different levels of commitment when it comes to joining a gym and starting an exercise program. There are the people that believe that since they are paying monthly membership fees they will automatically see the pounds start to drop off. There are also those that actually show up to the gym on a regular basis but are not doing the correct things to change their bodies for the better. That could either be because they don’t know what they should be doing or because they simply aren’t putting in enough effort. Then there are those people that realize that they need some help so they enlist the help of a personal trainer. Some of these people believe by just having a trainer they will begin to see results. Unfortunately that is not the case. Those that see mediocre results will have a trainer to give the correct prescription, show up for each appointment, and give 100% while they are there. But Jean Giraudoux said it best, “Only the mediocre are always at their best”. For those people that truly desire substantial results, drastic changes must be made.

Someone truly dedicated to change their body must commit to themselves and change their lifestyle. Hiring a personal trainer is a great start and they can and will help you get on the right path but the trainer is not a miracle worker. If you work with a trainer less than four times a week then you must take it upon yourself to make it in the gym and work hard on your own. You must also make smart food choices as the saying goes, you cannot out train a bad diet. Remember a trainer will get you started but they cannot do it alone, it takes hard work on YOUR part. I’ll leave you with one last saying; You can lead a horse to water…
