Achieving a Healthy Lifestyle: 3 Ways a Personal Trainer Can Help You

Achieving a healthier lifestyle requires determination and dedication. Without those two, it’s impossible to keep sticking to your daily routine while pushing yourself as each day goes by. But the problem most people face is that doing the same workout routine for a month or two gets tedious pretty quickly.

Losing motivation is the strongest adversary you need to face when it comes to health and fitness. Without that spark of inspiration to get up and head to the gym or do cardio, you can end up staying in bed all day, thinking to yourself, “I’ll do it tomorrow,” but then, tomorrow never comes. Procrastination is easy to justify because people believe they’re strong enough to break out and get back to their healthy habits, but that’s easier said than done.

If you want to achieve a healthy lifestyle, you need something that will push you even harder to keep hitting your fitness goals. A personal trainer can aid in motivating you to become better. Here’s how:

1. A Personal Trainer Will Understand Your Targets

Having a personal trainer by your side will allow you to become more confident and comfortable with your routine because they know what you want to achieve and all the steps to get there.

PT’s are always happy to help their clients hit their goals, and observing them get through their challenges is a fulfilling venture for your personal trainer. Because of this, you’ll likely feel less anxious about whether or not you’re doing the right workout, helping you focus more on hitting target after target and push yourself further each day.

2. A Personal Trainer Knows Your Challenges

Personal trainers are always encouraging you to step it up over time, but they’re also aware of your weaknesses. So, when the going gets tough, they can tell you what you need to do to overcome such obstacles. By seeking advice from a trainer, you’ll easily gain an insight on how to better deal with your lifestyle hurdles. Your PT will gladly assist in your development and share some tips on how to strengthen your weakest areas.

3. A Personal Trainer Will Come Up With Creative Routines

PT’s are also aware of how sticking to the same workout plan for weeks or months can get boring easily. For that reason, your trainer will formulate a more interesting and exciting workout routine to keep the fun and challenge well-balanced. If you tend to get tired of the same workout routine easily, your PT can devise a fitness strategy with more variety that will still give you the results you dream of.

Experienced trainers will know what you need to keep the spark of inspiration lit continuously, allowing you to go hard without feeling burnt out over time. The best trainers can also turn even the most boring workouts into a fun and exciting routine by creatively mixing it up.


Personal trainers create individualized routines that fit your needs. By hiring a PT, you’ll be able to work on the weakest aspects of your lifestyle. You’ll also develop a stronger sense of keeping yourself inspired and dedicated to improving your habits through a fun and creative workout plan.

Chad has been my personal trainer for over 10 years.  He is very dedicated and resourceful as a trainer.  I would highly recommend Chad.  He has kept my body healthy through all these years and in my 50s. Chad is also very accommodating to working with your schedule. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

I love working out with Chad! I have been working out with him for the past year and a half and have had the best results compared with other trainers. Chad’s dedication to his clients, humor, warmth and expertise are a winning combination. I look forward to our sessions and always leave feeling stronger, more flexible and energetic. I highly recommend Chad.

I have been working with Chad (the trainer) for almost three years now and have gone through an amazing transformation! He bonds greatly with his clients and is a very qualified trainer. He tailors workouts to individual clients and has helped me perform better as an equestrian and achieve my physique goals. If you are looking for a great one-on-one trainer, I would highly recommend.

When I started going to the fit factor I went in thinking I had a pretty good knowledge of weight lifting and exercise without having much to improve. I was so wrong! Chad was incredible and really took the time to explain and show proper technique as well as a variety of different exercises that I had never done before. I now have much more confidence in my form and have a really great and well rounded routine. Additionally, Chad catered to my personal goals and really listened to what I wanted to accomplish. I cannot recommend The fit factor and Chad enough!

I have been weight lifting for over five years but have never had dedicated instruction from a trainer. Chad was able to notice where my form was failing and correct it immediately. He also guided me towards effective exercises so that I could keep achieving my goals and moving up. After a couple of months of working with him I was able to see some great results. Chad knows his stuff!

Chad has been great with not only the types of specialized workouts each session but also with checking in after the sessions. He has a real passion for seeing people make big health changes; which makes it fun. Would highly recommend!

I went to Chad looking to get back in shape and lose weight, which had crept up from working long hours. Chad was super patient and non-judgmental. We started at a level where I would see results but not get so sore or so disappointed at what I could not do it. He focused on what I could do if I pushed myself hard and taught me that step/skill building was an integral part of the process. We also talked about nutrition and self-care. As other reviews have mentioned, he cares about his clients beyond the appointment time, and wants them to make positive change to their lives that will stick. I lost 30+ pounds and I am in the best shape of my life. I have been able to maintain this for 2 years. He taught me how to create a sustainable workout plan. Even during the pandemic I was able to maintain my weight and my fitness level thanks for his frequent check-ins and the solid fitness base we created through his work and fitness mentorship. I highly recommend him!

I started with Chad in August 2020, my first semester of college was cancelled and i needed something active to do. At that point I was a small underweight kid looking to gain muscle and gain weight. I went to Chad 3 times a week until late January 2021. Those 5 months were great, I really enjoyed going to chad and it was the highlight of my week and something I would look forward to going to 3 times every week. Throughout this time Chad has perfected my form on workouts and had a great and unique workout for me everytime. I went in weighing 125 pounds at 5’10 and now I weigh 150 pounds after the five months. Not only did Chad give workouts but he also gave me a diet for me to follow so I could maximize my time with him. He really personalizes workouts for each person. Currently i’m in the best shape of my life and am super confident in my body. GO TO FIT-FACTOR!!
