What is a Personal Trainer (PT) good for, and do you really need one?
In all honesty, not everyone needs a PT, but they can certainly help those of us who struggle with motivation, knowledge or boredom in the gym.
Why should you get a trainer?
1. It’s educational. We all love education right? If you want to learn to change the oil in your car, you don’t go to a hairdresser, and relying on unvetted Youtube or Instagrammers can be risky. The best option is to find a qualified trainer who can work out a plan to suit your lifestyle and achieve your goals. It can also help prevent injuries or overtraining woes, which may slow you down.
2. Accountability. How many times have you procrastinated or said ‘tomorrow’? With a trainer, you’ll have a scheduled appointment for your diary to motivate you to turn up. And they’ll keep tweaking your programme to ensure it’s still challenging and intrinsically motivating for you.
3. Time management. With little spare time, it’s crucial that we find time to work on our own health and wellbeing. A trainer can help you maximise your time, so that you get the best workout in the time you have available.
4. It’s just more fun! Not having to think about what’s coming up next in your routine, and just letting the trainer guide you can be freeing and relaxing (all whilst working up a sweat). They can come up with fun and interesting ways to achieve your goals, without going to ‘standard’ exercises that are easier to remember on your own. They generally have good banter and charming personalities, which makes a 45min sweat session that much more enjoyable.
If any or all of these points resonate with you, then maybe you could do with a trainer? Good news is, starting Monday 11 June, we have an amazing 1 month Introductory training package available to all UC Staff.
We’re offering 1 full month of RecCentre Membership PLUS 4x PushMe personal training sessions for just $99.
Why are we doing it? Because your health is important, and we know that budget can be another constraint, so let’s remove that and get you off to a good start. At that price, you can afford to give it a whirl, and see if it’s right for you.
Hurry, the special ends on Saturday 30 June, 2018, and you must bring your current Staff ID card to sign up at our reception (not available online). Visiting staff can take advantage of this too!
Finally, just note that this offer isn’t available in conjunction with other discounts, like discount vouchers or union membership discounts.
