Having Trouble with Your Exercise Regime? Talk to Mark Slaughter!

The time has come. You are totally going to lose the extra weight you somehow managed to put on in the past three years! You’ve got your plan all typed up and ready; you’ve abolished all chocolate from passing your lips, and you just bought the newest edition of Shape-Ups to help tone you up more. You’re going to start getting fit, and you’re going to start first thing tomorrow morning! Carpe diem!

But then the morning comes.

The alarm rings at 6 a.m., and bleary-eyed, you glance at your clock, fumble with it for a moment, and, instead of getting out of bed and going for that walk like you promised yourself last night, you reset the alarm for your typical wake-up time of 7 a.m. and go back to sleep.

Does this sound like you? Well, maybe it’s time for you to find yourself a personal trainer to help out!

“Ummm, but wait a sec ,” you may say. “I’m not a celebrity, and I’m not a big-shot at some fancy-schmancy corporation. I’m not the kind of person who needs a PERSONAL TRAINER!”

Well, did you know that thousands of “regular people” utilize a personal trainer’s help on a regular basis to help lose weight, eat right, and get on the healthy track in life?

In fact, according to an article from, 85% of people who use personal trainers to help them achieve their goals maintain their exercise regime and hit the gym regularly.

Mark SlaughterSo how can a personal trainer help you? Well, there are many benefits to having a personal trainer on your side! Just ask Mark Slaughter, PT, here at Fitness4Life. He has 35 years of training in not only physical therapy but also personal training, and he has helped thousands of patients in his career.

One of the most important things personal trainers can do for you is to get you motivated – and keep you motivated! There are so many people who have all the good intentions in the world to exercise but never get around to it because they’re too tired, too busy, or think that there’s too much work involved in order to lose weight. Having a personal trainer is like having your own personal cheerleader – even if you’re having the most difficult time in the world with your fitness issues, they will stand there and cheer you on until you succeed (and then they’ll cheer some more!).

Do you ever wish you could see results right away with your workout regime? Let’s face it – who DOESN’T want to see the results of all the hard work they put in to a cause they believe to be worthy of all the effort? Working with a personal trainer lets you see your results in a faster frame of time, AND they’ll be better results to boot!

Okay, okay, we can tell you’re still fighting the idea. Perhaps you do things your own way (which is fine!); you go for an intense walk through town every day and try to lift a few weights here and there.

Are you seeing results?

If not, you might not be getting the most out of your exercise regime. A personal trainer will customize your exercise program and will show you how to get the most out of your workout! They know all the tips and tricks to show you how to tweak your routines so that you’ll start shredding those pounds or toning those arms up more quickly and more efficiently. As a bonus to you, personal trainers will also teach you how to exercise safely and in less time, but with the same (or even better) efficiency!

Oh, and did we mention that personal trainers can help you get past that pesky plateau? You know, the one that stops you from losing the last 5 or 10 pounds that have been REFUSING to budge in ages?

Okay, okay, maybe you’re not totally sold on the idea. Maybe you don’t want to commit to the idea of meeting with a personal trainer multiple times a week. And yes, that’s definitely a time commitment that can’t be taken lightly! No worries, you can actually take one or two separate sessions here at Fitness4Life! You can get your feet wet with ease and let Mark Slaughter do what he does best before you decide if you want to commit your time. But even a few sessions will help you look and feel better! If nothing else, you have a few ideas of what to do to help yourself become a healthier person.

So what are you waiting for? Pick up the phone and call 1-618-656-LIFE and talk to Mark Slaughter about personal training here at Fitness4Life!
