You’ve dialed in your nutrition plan and set realistic health goals. You exercise regularly, but you’re still not getting the results you want. What else can you do?

Working with a personal trainer is one of the best ways to add motivation and intensity to your workout. Your trainer will serve as your coach and accountability partner, helping you stay on track to reach your fitness goals. But what exactly will a trainer do for you? Here are 5 ways you’ll benefit:
1 Personal trainers help you get your best possible workout
It’s not always easy to assess whether or not you are reaching your full potential in a workout. Do you have five more reps in you? Is it time to ramp up your speed? Should you add extra weight to your bar? Your trainer will help you know when to reach deep (even if you don’t think you can) without pushing you too far (and risking injury). Expect to sweat as you challenge yourself every time you workout.
2 Personal trainers help you reach your goals or reach them faster
If you could set a fitness goal with a guarantee that you couldn’t fail, what would that goal be? Lose 15 pounds? Run a marathon? Build overall muscle tone and strength? While your trainer may not be able to guarantee success (after all, you still have to show up and put in the effort), she or he can give you the support and coaching you need to reach your goals faster and more strategically than you would on your own. Having a personal trainer in your corner also provides some extra accountability, and that may be just the nudge you need to make it to your next milestone.
3 Personal trainers reduce your chances of getting injured
Two of the most common culprits behind exercise injury are poor form and fatigue. A personal trainer can help you avoid both of these pitfalls. If you are a beginner, your trainer will guide you through each exercise, show you how to use machines and weights correctly, and help you practice good form from day one. Even if you know what you are doing, it’s still helpful to have an objective eye to notice when you have pushed yourself too far or your form is off.
4 Personal trainers show you how to change up your workout and keep it fun
Hit a plateau? Tired of the same old routine? Tempted to quit showing up at the gym altogether? That’s the perfect time to start working with a personal trainer. Trainers can come up with new, creative ways to help you reach your goals, suggest new routines, help you try out a new exercise trend, and show you fun ways to get the results you’re looking for. Nobody wants to do the same boring exercise every day for months or years on end. A personal trainer will make it fun so you can get it done.
5 Personal trainers help you stay motivated
Your personal trainer will serve as your sounding board, accountability partner, coach, and fitness support team. When you’re not sure you can reach your next milestone, your trainer can help you find the internal resources to keep going. When you think you’ve reached your limit, your trainer can help you dig deep for those last few reps. He or she can also help you talk through any hang-ups or frustrations that may be hindering your performance and help you find solutions.
