In-Home Personal Training, For the Best Results
When you’re looking for a personal trainer there are many options you have available, but not all are made equal. You have:
- Traditional Personal Training you find in a gym
- Online Personal Training
- Group Classes
- In-Home Personal Training
With more options available than ever you need to know what’s the best. All of them have their pros and cons, so you need to find what fits you:
- Training in a gym
- Pros: There’s plenty of equipment so the workouts are versatile & can be based on what you need
- Cons: but typically the trainers aren’t extremely educated/experienced. Often times you’ll see those trainers having their clients do the same workouts, regardless of needs, or they don’t look the part. Also, you have to prepare for and drive to the gym.
- Online Personal Training
- Pros: You can hire someone who you know for a fact is well-educated (if you do enough research). So, you can get good results. It’s also usually more affordable
- Cons: All the accountability will be on you to get the workouts done. Also, it’s hard to get good tips on form. You will also still have to go to the gym or own your own equipment.
- Group Classes
- Pros: There’s a sense of community & accountability to help you achieve your goals.
- Cons: You won’t get tips on form, so there’s a high rate of injury. Also, they don’t usually provide much information on dieting for your goals.

For most people, in-home personal training will be your best bet. There are so many reasons why in-home personal training has the highest chance of helping you get in shape. Let’s crack into why that is:
It’s Flexible, So You Can Fit Exercise Into Your Busy Life
One of the biggest objections to exercise that’s always given is: “I don’t have time to work out.” Getting dressed for the gym, eating beforehand, and making the drive are very time-consuming. That’s why in-home personal training gives the best results, it gets rid of the excuse that you can’t make the time. Instead, the trainer will make time for you by coming to your house. That’ll make it easy to fit a workout into the busiest of schedules.
Whether you just got off from work, or you work out on your lunch break. The ability to have an effective workout, no matter the location or time, will help you get consistent results. This is important because consistency is the biggest contributor to getting fit.
One of the biggest reasons people quit is because at first, they get results, but then they fall off the wagon. It’s hard to consistently push yourself to go through the whole process.
HOWEVER, when you have someone who meets at your home there’s no escape, you’re forced into accountability.
Accountability to the MAX
There are so many benefits to in-home personal training, but the high accountability will lead you to success.
One of the most significant benefits of having any personal trainer is accountability, but there’s even more with an in-home trainer. If you have someone that comes to your home, you’ll have no other choice other than to work out.
AND if you’re trying to lose weight, then nutrition will be key to your success. When you have an in-home personal trainer they will be able to help much more with what you eat. They can get a good idea of the things you eat or go over your pantry with you. They’ll be able to give suggestions based on what they see, whereas a normal personal trainer can’t do that as well. You’ll also be able to ask any questions you have about what to eat.

Another thing in-home personal training will do for you is to give you workouts you can do on your own, from home. A good personal trainer can make a workout, that’s fit for you, no matter the equipment. This will give you confidence, and a means to get fit without having to go to the gym. An in-home trainer will educate you on how to work out effectively without a gym, and get you the best results possible.
Easiest to Stick to
90% of people who lose a significant amount of weight gain it back. Do you know why that is?
It’s because what they did was unsustainable. People think that losing weight is the hard part, but it’s keeping it off that’s actually the hardest part.
In-home personal training is the solution to this. It’s easy to stick to because there’s minimum work required. You don’t have to go anywhere, think about what workouts to do, or what foods you should be eating. It’s easy to stick to exercise when there’s someone coming to you. We take out the guesswork so you have the ability to reach your full potential.
In-home personal training has to be the most sustainable form of training. The less work that you have to put in the easier it is to be consistent. That’s why a lot of fads, like keto, are hard to be consistent with. It takes a lot of work and that is fatiguing for us. That amount of work will eventually wear you down and force you to quit. Therefore, you want to get the most results with the least amount of work possible.
By making all the aspects of getting fit easy you can focus on getting the results without all the hardship.
Your Home Will Become a Healthier Place
We spend over 60% of our time at home, and we’re a reflection of how we use our time. Therefore, wouldn’t you want your home to be a place that promotes a healthy lifestyle?
But, for most people, that isn’t the case. Being healthy & fit is uncommon, most people aren’t happy with how they look & feel.
That’s where in-home personal training comes in, and saves the day. By spending some of that 60% at home focusing on your health it will, in turn, become a healthier place.
We associate and pair things, it’s human nature. When I say a word like broccoli, for instance, you instantly start thinking about it. What does it smell like? What color is it? What’s its texture? We associate all those things with just a word.
So, by working out at home you are going to start associating your home with being fit & healthy. It becomes a place to work out and eat right. This is a massive win because looking and being fit is highly associated with nutrition. AND where do you usually eat? For most people, it will be at home.
This is a huge win because your home’s new identity will start reflecting in your pantry. It will be much easier to eat healthy when you think of your home as a healthy place.
You’ll Inspire Your Loved Ones
Because you have a higher chance of success working out at home, you’ll give hope to the people around you. The hope is that they can change their lives too.
You see because you’re working out at home the people around you will be able to watch your transformation happen over time. By seeing that the seed will be planted in their mind that it’s possible for them too. The biggest obstacle that keeps people from trying is the belief that it can’t be done. BUT when they see you do that it can give them the courage to change their lives. That effect is contagious and will spread throughout your life.
If a client wants their loved one to make a change I always recommend they start with themselves. Almost always they will get into it because you did.
One of the most embarrassing things you can do, as a person, is to be a total beginner. That’s why most people don’t go to the gym. It’s embarrassing to exercise when you’re just starting out. It makes you feel like people are watching, and that you’re just making a clown out of yourself. But that feeling will always hold you back from reaching your goals. If you associate the gym with shame and embarrassment, then sooner or later you won’t be going back.
When you work out with a personal trainer at home you eliminate the 2 embarrassing parts of working out.
- You won’t have to second guess if you’re doing it right
- There’s no one there to judge you, so you have the highest chances of success
By freeing yourself of the embarrassment you can learn much easier. Since you’re also working out from the comfort of your home, in-home personal training creates an environment that breeds success.
It’s a place that becomes free to make mistakes, learn, and become the best possible version of yourself.
Get Use Out of Equipment Just Sitting There
The Treadmill is transforming into an expensive coat hanger.Unknown
Everybody has workout equipment that they have sitting, tucked away in the basement or garage, and begging to be used. You already spent the money on it, and by having an in-home personal trainer you can get more than your money’s worth out of it.
How’s that? Because a transformation of your health and how you feel & look is priceless. I can speak from personal experience, it’s like getting your life handed back to you.
With an in-home personal trainer, you’ll want to dust off the old treadmill and put it to good use again. To you, it will be good as gold.
Do What’s Best For You
At the end of the day, you have to decide what type of personal training works best for you.
