There are, for some people, a variety of obstacles toward reaching their fitness goals. At MUV Fitness, we are aware of such topics, and address them according to each member’s needs. A common fear is that a workout might result in personal injury. Not necessarily a broken arm or rib, but more common is a strained wrist, perhaps tennis elbow, or internal bruising inside the shoulder joint. Such injuries are considered “minor” as they cause some discomfort and might prevent you from participating in the next fitness class, but they are also something a personal trainer can prevent by teaching you proper form.
Using Proper Form to Prevent Injury
The difference between you and a professional athlete is only that they’ve been practicing proper form since before teenage years. They know better because they’ve already learned, but a pro will blow a shoulder or knee just as quickly as you will when using improper form. It doesn’t matter how strong you think you are, or how strong you really are, there are just certain things your body isn’t designed to do.
Personal trainers are the key toward preventing injury. You might think and they’ll likely tell you that your fitness goals are their primary concern, but the entire time they are watching your form and helping you adjust it to prevent injury. Although accidents happen, personal trainers are personally trained in how to coach you to prevent injuries.
