Since the year new I've been attempting to loose weight, I joined the gym and for a while was eating better. But if you know me you'll know I am awful at sticking to anything especially when it comes to diets and regimes unless somebody is constantly on my back. For a while now I've been considering joining slimming world as well as getting my own personal trainer, and I've seen many people during their sessions in the gym and although it seems intense, I know they are getting the best work out as they are being told what to do by a professional. The idea of a personal workout which is tailored to your needs and goals seems a lot better than working on it by yourself (unless you know what you are doing, unlike me who does not). I have recently been speaking to a personal trainer called Keith who is the owner of Right Path Fitness about what a personal trainer does and what the benefits are having a PT instead of going it alone. Keith states that having a personal trainer is beneficial for many reasons including learning new exercises and skills, extra motivation (yep, I need that.) As well as quicker access to reaching your goals as you have someone tracking your progress and keeping you going.

Whilst looking into the idea of getting my own personal trainer I found that you can also get them online, which I suppose would make sense in a day and age where you can just about get everything online. I love the idea of having that support and still having the independence to go it alone whilst at the gym and not having that extra pressure on your back, although I am sure that is the point right? I love the idea of having someone monitoring my progress and keeping me on track when I want to give up. BUT as being someone who lacks motivation I am wondering if I need a personal trainer to keep going with my fitness journey? The only thing stopping me at the moment is the money side of things because as a student it can be hard to find the money for things like gym memberships and personal trainers, but maybe one day it will happen.

 I would love to know your opinions on personal trainers and whether you've had one before or if you currently do.
