If you’re new to the process, you may be wondering, “Do I need a personal trainer to start strength training?” We’ve covered how fitness instructors can help shape your body, but do you need one to begin building muscle?

Take the quiz below to see if a personal trainer may be right for you, and then keep reading to learn more.

How to Know if a Personal Trainer is Right for You

Deciding whether or not to hire a personal trainer to start strength training is ultimately a personal decision. There are a few key elements that can guide you in the right direction.

Have You Ever Done a Strength Training Routine Before?

If you’ve participated in strength training before and you’ve been out of it a little while, you may not need a personal trainer. However, if you’re entirely new to the process, it might be a good idea to have some guidance along the way.

Many elements come into play with strength training. Mapping out a plan to meet your goals, being educated on proper form to avoid injury, and learning the best exercises to meet your needs.

If this is something you’re unfamiliar with, or you would like a professional opinion to reintegrate back into a routine, hiring a personal trainer may be the route to take.

Do You Need Extra Motivation and Encouragement?

If you’re someone who needs some extra motivation, encouragement, and a little nudge to stick to your routine, getting a personal trainer to start strength training may be a good idea. Personal trainers hold you accountable and provide you with the encouragement to keep going.

Additionally, if you’ve paid for a personal trainer, you’re more likely to stick to your routine and show up for your sessions, which means that you have a better chance of reaching your goal.

GR8 Training Means GR8 Success

Whether or not you hire a personal trainer, if you’ve decided to start strength training, you’re already on a great path towards physical fitness. Keep it up! Stick to your routine and goals. We believe in you.
