The right personal trainer is a great tool for anyone (beginner, novice, intermediate, or professional).
Even if you are a coach/trainer it is easy to go easy on yourself - it's natural to work harder for a coach. Working with a coach is a great way to keep yourself honest, accountable, tighten up your skills, & get better. You've decided to get a trainer. A face to face (1-on-1 personal trainer) is a great tool if you can afford it. Next you have to schedule a time. If your schedule is very flexible - then, No worries! But for most of us we must schedule around our busy days. From my experience there are 2, sometimes 3 - prime times for working with a personal trainer. Before work, After work, and sometimes around lunch time. Here's the thing, most of the best trainers have regular long term clients at those times. Of course, sometimes you can luck out and take over one of these coveted time slots. But, are you feeling lucky? Well, do ya?
Also with face to face (in person training) you are reserving a specific time slot. Because you are reserving a time, there is typically a 24 hour cancellation policy. If you get called into an unscheduled meeting, have to work late, the kids are sick, car breaks down, (insert other calamity) - you lose the session! Now this isn't a license to become a flake and skip out on your exercise routine. But life happens. With online training - you get your plan - and then it's up to you to fit it into your schedule. Now I would encourage you to try to 'set' a time that works best for your schedule and perform your routine consistently at that time - but if you need to slide a day over, you can. If you need to go after work in lieu of before (or vice versa), you can. You need different times on different days (or) a flexible schedule, a week: Mon, Wed, Fri (&) b week: Tues, Thurs, Sat - simple! I could list more real world examples, but I think you get it = Workout on YOUR time!
