32 Tips to Improve Your Health and Fitness
#12. The Fastest Way to Make Progress is Through Personal Training
I recently picked up the game of golf, mostly because I have buddies who play and It’s a great way to hang out, be active, and get out in nature.
But… Golf can be a frustrating sport. Sometimes you hit it great, and sometimes you slice it, you hook it, you snack it, you duff it, etc. and… you don’t know why.
I would not have had much success golfing without taking lessons with a golf pro who can look at my swing, correct my errors, give me drills specific to my issues, and put me through a lesson so I can play better golf tomorrow.
The same is true with most things in life. Want to play the piano (and progress quickly)?—get a piano teacher. Want to learn to surf (and progress quickly)?—take surfing lessons. Want to improve your health and fitness?—get a personal trainer and/or nutrition coach.
Personal training is the fastest way to reach your movement goals, because you have one coach work with just you specifically on your issues specifically to reach your goals.
If you are looking to get back into movement, or get started with CrossFit, if you are looking to improve a lift (snatch, clean, overhead squat, deadlift, etc.), if you are looking to get better at a gymnastics movement (Toes-2-Bar, muscle-up, strict pull-up, handstand push-up, etc.), if you are looking to get custom programming to reach a specific goal, then personal training is your fastest path to progress.
Nutrition coaching is the fastest way to make progress on your health & fitness goals because not only will a nutrition coach will put you on a plan to eat the right foods, in the right amounts, but will help you to overcome your personal barriers that make it hard for you specifically to eat healthy.
If you are looking to lose body fat, if you are looking to build muscle, if you are looking to tone-up, if you are looking to improve performance through improved strength to bodyweight ratio, then nutrition coaching is your fastest path to progress.
