Well I'm 3 weeks into my #SimplyCurvyGetsFit campaign and God knows it's been rough but I'm definitely glad I made the decision the to get serious about my health. Not that I'm having any major health issues this is simply a preventative measure and I can still have my sexy curves that I love so much weighing a few pounds less. One major component of my #SimplyCurvyGetsFit movement is my daily workout routine. My workouts wouldn't be nearly as effective if I hadn't started working my personal trainer Gene of S.T.R.O.N.G Temple Fitness and Personal Training. Here's 6  Reasons Why I Hired a Personal Trainer:

1. Accountability and Motivation
Trainers are experts at holding you accountable. My gym is underneath my apartment and when I start slacking or  decide to skip a day, It kills me to go downstairs and walk past Gene lol. Seeing him everyday is true motivation that my behind needs to get a workout in that day before he leaves. 

2. CAN'T
Can't isn't a word in a trainers vocabulary. When working out on my own previously I always used the word can't and never did exercises I made up in my mind that I "couldn't" do. Now because of Gene I feel guilty about using the word can't, never say can't always try! Trainers can see the best in you even when you feeling low and don't believe in yourself.

3. Proper Form and Technique
Even after reading tons of fitness magazines and watching workout videos on YouTube, my form is horrible. That's partially because I'm uncoordinated anyway lol. In all seriousness, what's the point of working out if you're doing the exercises wrong and not getting the full benefits. Trainers will ensure you have proper body form and help prevent you from injuring yourself!

4.  Real Routines
We all know and love the basic workout routine stretch, treadmill, elliptical, drink water, go home. With a long term goal this routine can get very boring. Trainers help with diversifying workout routines. Switching things up can maximize your results!

   5.  Personalized Fitness Plan
Every body is different and personal trainers understand this. They know which diet plans and workouts work best for you and your personal fitness goals. 

6. Results
Working with a trainer will allow you to achieve the results that you cannot achieve on your own. Each person’s goals are extremely personal.  A trainer is going to develop goals that will lead you down a path to success.
