Why a survey of the valley's best trainers? In my opinion, a personal trainer can assist in a number of ways. According to Infofit.com, these are the top reasons to hire a trainer:

  • Reduce injury risk
  • Personal trainers are inexpensive
  • Long-term guidance and motivation
  • Accountability
  • Variety and creativity
  • Learn life-long skills
  • Put the “personal” in your training
  • Learn effective and efficient techniques
  • Lose stubborn fat
  • Set the stage for a healthier future

Yes, hiring a trainer will cost you a few bucks. That investment, however, is certainly preferable to wasting time with improper exercise and poor lifting technique.

Thank you for voting. This was informative, and kind of fun. I'm sure the winners are flattered by your support. Here's wishing you a happy and healthy 2019.
