So it should really come as no surprise when I tell my clients and my potential clients that I, myself have a personal trainer also. But it does. The most common response would be "Oh really? Why would YOU need a PT .. you can do it all yourself. "
Why, yes, yes I can plan my program and train myself. But there are days when I just don't feel the urge to push myself as hard as I could ... or should.
Like today's training session for example. Because of the "issue" I have with my arm at the moment I am limited in what I can do, so leg strength has been a focus in our last few sessions. Today we thought we would shake it up and did a more cardio focused session. And no, I probably would not have put myself through that session today by myself .. I was sucking in the big ones after the warm up!
Now, I'm feeling pretty happy that I got out there and worked hard! Maybe just to make up for some treats over the weekend a little bit ...
Someone to push me and challenge me ...
Someone I need to be accountable to and make sure I turn up to my appointment
Someone to think for me ... I just do what they tell me to do and I don't have to think about what is next
Someone to make sure my technique is spot on!
What do I love most about having a PT ... I know that I have worked hard, put in a decent effort and have definitely had a quality session! Oh and I feel pretty darn good after a kick arse session!
