What do you say when a colleague tells you she is suffering from depression? What do you do when your friend is upset because her husband wants a divorce? If your father suddenly starts dementia and your mother is sad?
We all have to do with it. But how do we deal with it? It is precisely in this kind of situation that the person concerned often hears very little from friends and family. There is only one reason for this: we simply do not know how to deal with it and we are afraid to say or do the ‘wrong’. Yet your support is extremely important for the other now.
Today there is a wide selection of gyms, sports subscriptions and packages. You can go to the various fitness clubs at any time of the day. There is a lot of information on the internet about how to train. Then why would you choose a personal trainer or wellness trainer?
- Program with a clear goal
Personal training is more than just sports. With a personal trainer you achieve the goal that you want to achieve with sports. A goal is to become stronger, to get more fitness, to lose weight or to become heavier in a responsible way. Together with your personal trainer you look at what helps or what constitutes a risk in achieving your specific goal. A personal trainer not only guide in sports, but also help choosing the right diet and lifestyle to increase the chance of success.
- One-to-one appointment
Do you know the best stick to stick to your intentions is to make agreements with others. If you are going to work out with someone, the chances are high that you will keep going than if you go to the gym alone. The same applies to sports with a personal trainer. Your wellness trainer helps you keep your agreements, and can show you where you are progressing. As a result, the number of drop-offs in personal training is much lower than in the gym.
- Preventing injuries
When you move (more), you automatically increase the chance of injuries. The way you move has a major impact on the risk of injury. It is now known that proper warming up and cooling down is important. A starting injury can go unnoticed when you do your exercises yourself. A personal trainer is trained to pay attention to this. The personal trainer provides variation in exercises. This also helps to prevent injuries.
- Must be reliable
A client must feel that the coach can be trusted, otherwise it is impossible to make real progress. In addition, the coach must also show that he is reliable in his actions, that you can count on him.
- Objective Neutral
When you are a good coach, you have the tools and the mental and emotional capacity to stay objective. Regardless of what is being said, the coach remains calm and calm. She is a source of unconditional love and acceptance and does not judge.
- Excellent Coaching
Communication is the lifeblood of wellness coaching and therapy. As a coach you are responsible for ensuring that your communication achieves a goal. You must carefully choose and control your verbal and non-verbal communication.
- Variation in training
Variation in the exercises is the prevention of injuries, important for another reason. The gym offers a fixed number of devices. You can vary in order or intensity, but in general you go through a set of exercises. This can become monotonous and you can lose motivation. During a personal training we want to make the training fun and challenging by choosing variation. You also train different muscles in different ways in this way.
- More than just practicing with devices
A visit to the gym is often limited to a round on the devices. That’s too bad. There are many other ways to train. Personal guidance is important here. See a personal training as a combination between a round of gym, fitness classes and if you dare, trail!
