Signing up for Personal Training: 5 Reasons It’s Worth It!

Whether you’re a gym-newbie looking to start your journey to fitness, or a semi-retired athlete looking to get on the grind again, you should hire a personal trainer. Although you might be spending a considerable amount initially, the pain and injuries that you’ll avoid in the long run will be worth the cost.

In this article, we will share five reasons custom fitness programs can help you achieve your fitness goals:

1. It is a sign of commitment

Many newcomers to the fitness world often quit because of the lack of motivation. This is because, with no one to hold you accountable, it is easy for you to slide back to an unhealthy lifestyle anytime the going gets tougher.

On the other hand, you may have the tendency to work harder in the presence of others. This is because it’s natural for you to crave approval in the presence of others, and in this case, it can play to your advantage. Hiring a personal trainer also entails allocating financial resources – an investment that you probably would rather not waste without reaping the benefits.

2. It gives the motivation and focus that’s right for you

It can be tempting to start this journey alone because you won’t have that added pressure. After all, the Internet is a wealth of free resources, and there are hundreds, if not thousands, of do-it-yourself guides to fitness. While these articles, e-books, and even self-help videos can be a good thing for anybody, it’s not a substitute for one-on-one fitness. This is because each of your body is wired a bit differently from others. Having a trainer who will create a fitness plan tailor-fit to your needs will ensure results in a shorter amount of time.

3. It presents you with options for sport-specific training

This goes hand-in-hand with getting a trainer for one-on-one treatment. People can be into fitness for different reasons. People who are training for combat sports, such as boxing or mixed martial arts, will require a different regimen than someone training for a better swing at golf. Whatever the case, your body will benefit from the guidance of a knowledgeable expert.

4. It helps you avoid injury

The rows upon rows of iron weights, pulleys, and benches can be a little intimidating at best, and at worse, a cause for untoward injuries. Having a trainer who knows you personally ensures that you are using gym equipment correctly to avoid accidents and maximize your workout. This is also good for people doing exercise to manage medical conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension. Professional trainers will do their homework and design your fitness routine around these conditions.

5. It instills confidence within you

Everybody remembers the first time they entered the gym and being intimidated by the people who look like they live and breathe fitness. This can be very discouraging for many people, but a trainer knows that fitness is a journey and the hardest part is always the first step. A trainer can help boost your confidence by ensuring that you are doing the correct exercise routines with the right form and at the right time.


Exercise is beneficial for everybody, whether with or without a trainer. However, if you want to achieve your personal fitness goals while avoiding running into injuries, then a personal training program is the best option for you.

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!

Giuseppe Leonelli

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!

Jonas Escobedo

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!!
