Why You Need a Personal Trainer

Why You Need a Personal Trainer

In the past 3 months, I've lost 5 kgs. Weight loss is not rocket science. People complicate their weight loss journey by bringing too many variables into the equation. It's not like I was a fat person. I am relatively "not fat" but I was gaining weight and feeling lethargic during my weekdays.

Getting fit is easy. All you need to do is push yourself to burn calories. You don't need a gym subscription or the latest Apple Watch. Run for 15 minutes every day and do some stretching and weight training in the morning. A pair of dumbells at home does wonders.

People complain - I do not have time for exercise. But they are underestimating how much more focus they will gain when they workout every day. The work that you do in 2 hours can be done in 90 minutes if you have worked out in the morning.

Physical exercise is also great for mental health. Your brain goes through bio-chemical changes when you work out regularly. I don't want to get into the technical details here, but you know it. Even if you do not workout regularly, you can feel the difference on the days when you walk a lot (like during a vacation).

It's hard for us to push ourselves, that's why everyone needs a personal trainer. Simran, one of our AlphaClub members has been helping people lose weight and get back on track with their fitness. Everyone needs an accountability partner who will push and remind them on their lazy days. Simran has been pushing me. She doesn't let me laze around a single day without running.

The difficulty is only until I wear my shoes. Once I wear my shoes, I am up and ready for running. And it doesn't take a lot of time to run. Just 10-15 minutes of running. Take the heart rate to 130+ bpm and run for 1 to 1.5 km. After running I feel great and feel gratitude to my trainer for pushing me.

A trainer is not just for following up with you, guiding you, and teaching you what exercises to do. A trainer is also for helping you with your diet. What you eat is what you are. 50% of your fitness depends on what you eat. Simran has been guiding me with a protein based diet and I have reduced carbs by more than 50% in my daily meals. Also thanks to my wife Sandhya for helping me with the diet part. Without her, I would be ordering unhealthy foods from Swiggy half the time.

I am not sure if I will get 6-pack abs but come on, dreaming is free. Maybe one day I will be ripped. Simran has earned herself a lifelong student.
