How having a PT can help you be more productive & have a happier life

Are you a gym newbie who doesn’t know where to start? Or perhaps you’re a regular gym-goer looking for some expert guidance on how to improve your workout? 

A personal trainer could be exactly what you’re looking for! 

What is Personal Training? 

A personal trainer is a certified fitness professional who designs and safely delivers exercise programs to help an individual or group improve their health and wellbeing. 

Under the expert guidance of a personal trainer, your sessions will be adapted to your fitness level or ability, and aligned with a goal that you’d like to achieve. 

There’s no one size fits all approach. Instead it’s all about finding the right goal for you. 

Whether that’s improving your mental health, reducing stress, feeling fitter, muscle building or weight loss - your PT will guide you to workout success, most likely leaving you a bit sweaty but feeling satisfied after every session.

5 reasons having a PT can help you be more productive and have a happier life

1. Tailored Fitness Plans

Personal trainers will help you to create an exercise routine that is tailored to your specific needs, fitness levels and any health conditions you may have.

This personalised approach will ensure that you are able to achieve your goals in a realistic and effective way. 

For example, if you’re someone that has a busy lifestyle - your trainer can help you create a more productive, time-efficient workout to ensure you are effectively exercising in the time you have available. 

Having a personal trainer create a tailored fitness plan not only allows you to have a clear structure to follow, but ensures your workout is balanced with a variety of exercises to prevent boredom and allow you to keep having fun as you work towards your goals. 

2. Expert Guidance 

A personal trainer will provide you with their expertise and knowledge as qualified fitness professionals with in-depth knowledge of the human body including anatomy, physiology, exercise and nutrition.

Using their knowledge and experience, personal trainers help their clients to reach their potential in a safe and effective way by educating them on the good form and technique which helps reduce the risk of injury and maximises results.

Having a personal trainer allows you to stop wasting time scrolling YouTube looking for a workout routine that you think might work and will actually get you moving towards your specific goal with your lifestyle, ability and safety in mind!

3. Accountability 

Do you ever think about working out but always find yourself putting it off or doing something else instead?

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to working out is that there are many other things that we could be doing instead, like scrolling through social media or watching Netflix… 

Yes, we’re looking at you! 👀

This is why many of us benefit from having a personal trainer to keep us accountable. 

Your personal trainer is essentially your accountability partner. For many people knowing someone is waiting for us to show up at the gym or will be tracking our progress is enough to ensure we stay on track to reach our goals. 

Ultimately, personal trainers keep you motivated, as they encourage you to remain committed to your fitness routine which allows you to get through those tougher moments where you feel like not going to the gym or giving up. 


4. Reduces Stress

Working out regularly with your personal trainer will undoubtedly benefit your physical health but regular exercise has also been proven to reduce our stress levels and improve our mental health

When we’re active, our brain releases chemicals known as endorphins which improves our mood and makes us feel better about ourselves and the world around us. 

It is well known that regular exercise improves the quality of sleep, allowing many of us to drift off more easily and wake up less often during the night. 

Overall reduced levels of stress, improved mental health and better quality of sleep allows us to live happier and healthier lives. 

5. Builds Confidence

Working out with the expertise and encouragement of a personal trainer can increase your confidence as you begin to hit your targets that will help you reach your broader fitness goals.  

As you see gradual improvements in your overall fitness levels, your personal trainer will help you to recognise the hard work and dedication that you have put into improving your health and wellbeing. 

Not only will you feel more comfortable in the gym and using the equipment properly, but being active provides us with a sense of achievement, which can boost our self-esteem and leave us feeling more confident in other areas of our lives. 


With tailored fitness plans and expert knowledge, a personal trainer is an investment in your wellbeing, which allows you to live a healthier and balanced life by guiding you on how to exercise your body in an efficient and enjoyable way.

Having a detailed workout plan alongside someone to hold you accountable, ensures that you stick to your routine, remain committed to your goals and paves the way for a more productive lifestyle. 

Beyond the physical benefits, having a personal trainer to guide your fitness journey can reduce stress, improve your mental health and boost your confidence which can make you a more positive, forward-looking individual. 

So whether you’re a new to fitness or simply want to improve your existing routine, a personal trainer is the ideal partner to help you make positive change, leading you to achieve a healthier, more fulfilling life.
