Are Personal Trainers Worth It?

Honestly, I was sceptical at the thought of seeing a personal trainer. After having a break from seeing physios weekly, I was wary of going back to that, despite knowing that it would do me so much good – but after constant nagging from my Mum, I agreed to give it a try and I couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised!

I started seeing Sean Brady, a local personal trainer to me and my sessions couldn’t be less like physio if I tried. They focus on improving areas where I’m weak, perfecting my technique and then adding weight to increase strength and stamina.

The sessions with Sean are so much fun and I look forward to them rather than dreading them like I used to do when I had physio. They feel so positive and Sean always keeps my programme varied so I’m not doing the same thing week after week which I love. My family have even noticed huge improvements in my walking when I try without crutches which has made me feel like I might actually be able to get off crutches one day (something which I’d started to think might never happen).

If you’re debating seeing a personal trainer, whether you have a disability or not, I’d definitely say give it a go, even if you just try a few sessions. If you live near the Neston area in Merseyside and are looking for a personal trainer, I really couldn’t recommend Sean more and you can check him out here.
