Personal Training: Should You Train at Home or in the Gym?

by Liam Smith Blogger

If you'd like to get in shape, the most effective, safest, and fastest way is to work with an experienced personal trainer. Personal trainers customise workouts by using their expertise to evaluate a client’s health, age, desired goals, and athletic ability, then train them accordingly.

Experienced personal trainers are also always mindful about client endurance and strength and injury prevention. The care they take to ensure that you are completing exercises the right way is instrumental to completing a routine successfully. If you are not doing each step the way it was intended when you’re doing push ups or sit ups, it could render your workout ineffective or at worst lead to injury. Once your personal trainer was able to ensure you know the right way to do the different exercise routines, you'll be able to safely complete all aspects of your workout and stay on track to achieve your fitness goals.

Exercising with a trainer can transform you by converting your occasional workouts into a fully active lifestyle that you can maintain.

Convinced you ought to work with a personal trainer? That’s easy, just type in ‘personal trainers near me’ to a search engine, and you will find plenty of local personal trainers. Next you have to decide if you want to work out with a personal trainer at home or in the gym. Below we outlined some considerations to keep in mind when making this decision.




Which Trainers Are Most Cost- Effective?

You might think personal trainers in the gym are cheaper but often they are self-employed. This means that the trainer's gym space is an extra cost for them so this fee is often passed on to their clients in their training rates.

In contrast, a personal trainer who visits your home won't have to cover gym membership fees in their rates. This allows their rate to be more directly in line with their experience level and the general cost of living in their area. As a result, when hiring a local personal trainer to train you at home, you could see lower rates in addition to the cost saving of not having to pay the gym membership yourself.




What Are The Benefits of Working Out at Home?

With a home personal trainer, you can get fit anywhere. This can save you a lot of time. With a busy schedule, it is difficult to find time to work out to begin with. When you work with a personal trainer at home it's easier to fit exercise into your routine. There's no need to travel back and forth to the gym. Plus, you'll be in the comfort of your own home. If you prefer to be independent with your workouts, rather than be surrounded by other gym-goers, this can be a better option.

With a home personal trainer, you can also train in parks as well. If you're motivated by being outdoors then this is a great opportunity to enjoy nature and improve your fitness level.




Won't You Miss Out on Exercise Equipment at Home?

Even when you're working out at the gym with your personal trainer, you will be doing some body weight exercises. And you will be able to do these easily at home too. So you won't miss out there!

While exercise equipment can be useful for improving your strength, there's no guarantee that if you're working out at the gym that you'll be easily able to access this equipment. Equipment in the gym might be unavailable because it’s being used by someone else anyway. In which case you'd have to either skip that exercise or delay your workout.

With so many people at the gym, it can be difficult at times to get your hands on the piece of equipment you need. By focusing on body-weight exercises with a trainer at home you eliminate this concern. Then, if you find that you are truly missing the equipment you can always consider investing in the piece you use most often and creating a home workout space.
