5 Reasons Why Private Training Gets Better Results Than Going By Yourself


Have you ever woken up acknowledging that you should probably workout but never ended up doing it?

It is very common for general population like full time workers, business owners, entrepreneurs or busy executives to find themselves in that scenario. 

In fact in order to keep improving or maintain your physicality/ health in check, consistency is king.

So, having an appointment that you are investing in, scheduled on that exact same morning with a professional waiting for you in a complete private environment, it would more than likely change your decision making process after the alarm goes off.

Expert Guidance

Private training means that no one is around. Just you and the expert inside of the training room. 

Complete FOCUS on the task ahead where the expert will be:

  • teaching you;
  • watching you, (form); 
  • correcting you if needed; 
  • spotting you to get the final repetitions that really count; 
  • motivating you when you are not feeling like it;

I believe all the above are excellent reasons to have a one-on-one private expert guiding you through each workout. But on top of that, there are several studies that have showed and compared supervised training and non-supervised training and in every study, supervised individuals get better results. This is not even mentioning the risks involved in trying to figure it out what to do in the gym on your own with factors such as incorrect form and ‘ego-lifting’.

Temperature Controlled

Did you know that sweating is just the cooling mechanism of your body and has no positive relation with exercise benefits?

In fact, there is a strong body of research that has showed that exercising in cold temperatures would be ideal for keeping yourself calm, not overheating and keeping the intensity of effort high which is the key element of your body’s stimulating positive adaptations (results). Any form of exercise is a form of stress to the body and overheating while exercising, is adding another element of stress to the equation. Your body might be even sending ‘stop’ signals to your brain because it doesn’t like to change from it’s normal temperature!

The ideal temperature for a productive workout should be around 16 to 18 degrees, and in a private environment, it is far easier to get the temperature of the training room down quickly, allowing you to not overheat. This means minimal sweat and complete focus.

Quantifying and Recording Data

Exercise in order to be effective must be progressive.

Our private training system is design to collect data from all your efforts in each and every workout. Data can then be collated and making the right adjustments necessary to ensure progress is happening over time.

  • Repetitions
  • Tempo (speed cadence)
  • Load (weights)
  • Force output 
  • Intensity 
  • Volume & Frequency
  • Periodisation  
  • Recovery 

All elements above are really important parts of a comprehensive private training program. Trying to do all of this by yourself in the gym whilst simultaneously trying to track and measure could be detrimental to your fitness journey. Why would you not allow someone to do this for you and all you have to do, is bring your best effort!

If you don’t measure and track you don’t know where you are going!

A comprehensive private training system should have an accurate form of body composition assessment,  in order to guarantee your goals are being met. Assessments may include:

  • Calliper (pinch test)
  • Fit3D Scanners
  • Bodpods
  • DEXA scans (most accurate but risks of radiation exposure)

In a private training system, you must be able to track your body fat percentage and lean muscle tissue. Tracking these elements are a visual tool to quantifiably track your progress, as well as being an awesome motivational weapon! 

People that are going to the gym but not measuring and tracking don’t know where they are going, period.   

If you don’t have all the elements above calculated and organised for you but you see value and benefits of having a customised system, apply now for a free trial at Intense Heath and experience the difference.
