Many people start off the New Year with big aspirations driven by the “New Year, New You” motto. Goal setting and resolutions are great, but can be difficult to sustain. When it comes to kick-starting a healthy lifestyle involving exercise and forming better eating habits, it’s not always easy to do at first. If you hit the ground running this year with your new goals and workout plan, but you’re already experiencing a decline in your motivation, a personal trainer may be your solution!
Our trainers at Rapid Fit KC are certified, experienced and lead with a determination to help individuals change their lifestyle, and ultimately change their life. We’ve come up with a list of 5 reasons you need a personal trainer to take hold of 2019 with the confidence and motivation to reach your goals. Be sure and consult with your doctor or medical profession before making any of these lifestyle changes.
Learn from the Expert
There’s nothing more intimidating than walking into a gym ready to take on your fitness goals, but having no idea where to start. If this is you, you’re definitely not the only one. It’s like with anything else, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” So, the first step is to have a plan or workout program in place to give your goals some structure and sustainability. Easier said than done, right? This is where a personal trainer comes in. Rather than researching and trying to build a workout plan from what you find on the latest fitness blogs or YouTube, a personal trainer does this part for you.
Rapid Fit personal trainers, David Qquendo, Jenny Shost, Ryan Black, Taylor Shull, Garret Sager, and Journey McMahon are all equipped with the knowledge, skillset and experience to help you define and achieve your personal fitness goals. If you choose to do 1 on 1 training, you’ll receive a personalized workout plan tailored to you, as well as nutritional guidance to further support your fitness goals. These two things combined quickly eliminate the guessing game for how to get the best results, and provide you with the confidence and support you need to stay driven and on track!
How many times have you started a new workout plan, diet or program like Whole 30 (which is hardcore) with all intentions of finishing, but your plan got hijacked by life? Life as in sleeping through your alarm, working late at night, donuts being brought into the office (and you obviously couldn’t resist), being too tired or too busy.
As humans, we’re destined to fail without accountability. What does that look like with a trainer? A personal trainer is more than someone who simply gives you workouts to do and suggestions to improve your diet. Our trainers will give you the constant support, advice and encouragement you need to keep showing up and putting the hard work in. Having someone in your corner pushing you to be the best version of yourself makes it harder to bail on workouts, too. It’s always a team effort.

Crush the Plateau
For anyone who has worked out consistently for weeks or months at a time and stops seeing results has most likely hit what’s called an exercise plateau. This can happen when you do the same workouts repeatedly overtime, without mixing things up and engaging different muscle groups with different exercises. When you find a workout routine that’s comfortable and easy to stick with, it can be tough to make changes. But, your body needs the switch and new challenges for compounding results!
At Rapid Fit KC, we know that plateaus are not your friend. Your trainer will bring it down to a science and structure your workout plan to avoid unwanted plateaus. Not only does it keep things interesting for your body, it keeps things interesting for YOU. Rapid Fit KC is all about making things fun, while staying driven by results.
If there’s one thing that leads to most setbacks or injuries in the gym, it’s improper technique and form. Improper technique and form can lead to muscle sprains, strains, fractures and more serious injuries. To get the most out of your workouts, it’s important to learn the proper techniques and form for each exercise.
We’ve all seen people who toss around heavy weights carelessly. While the amount of weight may turn heads, the form and technique are not at all impressive. It’s always better to focus on having good form, rather than more reps or heavier weight. A certified personal trainer understands the anatomy, functions and movements of the body, and can provide insight and instruction for proper technique and form. This will help you avoid setbacks and keep your body healthy and performing optimally.
Change Your Lifestyle, Change Your Life
At Rapid Fit KC, we view your goals holistically. It’s not just about the here and now, it’s about where you’re going. It’s also a process that takes time, commitment and the drive to keep going. You take your goals seriously, and so do we. We’ve seen hundreds of people go through our program with a variety of different goals, but with one thing in common — to lead a healthier and happier lifestyle.
And, that’s what we’ll help you do.
When you change your lifestyle with eating healthy and exercising, you change your life. Committing to these two things can lead to some powerful benefits like alleviated stress, improved sleep patterns, and more energy throughout the day.
Not only that, but one of the greatest benefits at Rapid Fit KC is the community of people who rally around you, push your limits, and celebrate your successes.
