Preparing Personal Training clients for summer in the winter

Any good personal trainer knows that when it comes to getting a summer body, the ‘fit summer body’ result is not just simply achieved by training vigorously just before the end of May when the sun comes up, but, in fact, to start, or continue, working on your fitness in winter. Personal trainers can help a wide variety of clients train for the summer holidays, whether they train regularly or are simply looking to get fit for summer.

Yearly Training Schedules

Ultimately, there will be some people who train regularly who have a training schedule throughout the whole year, while others may opt for personal training during half the year and others, simply to prepare for summer.

All in all, there are many benefits of beginning training in the winter to prepare your body for the summer holidays.

Regular Clients

Those who train regularly may favour winter bulking in order to push harder training in the summer, and can benefit from a personal trainer to help them prevent overtraining and achieving peak performance at an ideal time. This may be for a particular race, event or sport’s season.

New Clients

New clients who want to get ‘summer’, or dare we say it, ‘beach’ ready, will need encouragement to start training in winter. It is important for a personal trainer to explain that winter training is an important factor when preparing your body for summer.

Why Winter Training is important to prepare your body for summer

Your body needs time to adjust to training

Your body, when it is not used to training, needs time to adjust. That is, when going to the gym for the first time, you can’t expect to be able to get a top class work out in. This can be due to the fact that you haven’t learned how to use the machines effectively, or you may not be aware of your own fitness level or what work level will achieve your desired results. What’s more, you should tread carefully, so to speak, so not to pull a muscle or over-do it. As you start training more often, you will get more from your workouts and therefore will become much closer to ‘summer-body-ready’.

Winter Training allows you to fuel yourself to be more efficient

If you are looking to get that summer body, your training schedule will, ultimately, go hand-in-hand with advice about healthy eating. Winter training gives you the chance to fuel your body efficiently with healthy food that is low in saturated fat, and high in vitamins and minerals, to give you the energy you need to get the most out of your training. It takes time for the effects of training and efficient fuelling to achieve that summer body you are looking for. Therefore, it is best to start early by training and eating well this winter.

Winter Training releases endorphins to make you happy

There are more benefits to winter training than simply getting that summer body and, although, for many clients, this will be their ultimate goal, as a qualified personal trainer, it is important that you help them get a ‘buzz’ from training, that will keep them returning to the gym and keeping a healthy regime.

It’s true, exercise releases endorphins which, over winter, can undoubtedly help to make you significantly happier.
