For the most part, everyone knows what to do, they KNOW they need to exercise more and reduce their sugary snacks etc etc but actually doing it is a completely different thing and that’s when you need a PT. Someone who is there for YOU, to support you, to guide you, to be your cheerleader when your feeling unmotivated.
I’m also here to ensure that you are doing the exercise correctly! The smallest changes in posture and position can entirely change the effectiveness of an exercise. You also want to know that what are doing is going to work. So often people give up because they aren’t seeing the results they want either because they aren’t doing the right exercises or the right amount of exercises and then feel they are wasting their time – and very probably are!
Really, as much as you feel you comfortably can! You don’t need to unload all your personal secrets! However, if you feel that your emotional or physical state is or has affected your ability to exercise or lose weight, then share it. Especially if you feel that you can’t talk to anyone else. It really is good to talk and you’d be surprised how much emotion and / or hormones affects your ability to exercise and lose weight.
