Personal trainers are often seen as the pinnacle of health – but that doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from support! Many of our team members work with trainers of their own – either on an ongoing basis to achieve specific goals or when they feel like a change, a challenge or a fresh perspective. Here are five reasons why (that benefit non-trainer clients, also!) 

Trainers working with trainers


First of all, personal trainers are human, just like our clients. Despite our extensive knowledge of fitness and nutrition, we can still struggle with motivation and consistency. Nobody’s perfect! Having a personal trainer holds us accountable, ensuring we practice what we preach and stay on track with our goals.

By investing in our own health and fitness through working with a trainer, we demonstrate the importance of self-care, continuous improvement, and seeking support when needed to our clients.


Personal trainers spend their days tailoring workout plans and dietary advice to best suit clients’ unique needs. However, it can be challenging to maintain objectivity when it comes to our personal fitness journeys.

Seeking the support of a fellow in-home or virtual personal trainer can provide a fresh perspective, and new exercises, techniques, and strategies that we may not have considered on our own.

Our colleagues “might see areas of [our] program that could be adjusted to make [the] workout more interesting, more challenging, or just more fun. A trainer will look at [our] workout performance and let [us] know about any areas [that] could improve or where [we] might be able to push [ourselves] a little harder” (Very Well Fit, 2022).


Personal trainers are not immune to the frustration of fitness plateaus. Like anyone else, when we fall too far into the monotony of a comfortable exercise routine, we can get stuck in a rut or even lose workout inspiration. A fellow in-home or virtual personal trainer can analyze our current routine, identify weaknesses, and introduce new methods to help us break through stalls. We love what we do, and sharing that excitement can help reignite our passion and drive for helping others – and ourselves!

Additionally, a recent study published in the Journal of Sports Sciences by an international team of researchers found that “supervised resistance training promotes greater muscular adaptations and enhances exercise adherence” (National Library of Medicine, 2023).


As professional in-home and virtual personal trainers, we are well-versed in proper form and technique; safety is always at the forefront of our work. However, that doesn’t make us immune to injuries. In fact, dedication to pushing boundaries and testing limits can sometimes put us at higher risk. Working with a fellow trainer ensures we prioritize safety and injury prevention in our workouts, too.


Exercise science is constantly evolving, with new research, trends, and techniques emerging every day. Different trainers can bring different backgrounds and perspectives which can help a trainer not only maximize their own workouts but also expand the repetoires they use with clients. We add to this by hosting quarterly team workshops for our trainers where they have the opportunity to learn from us and each other, as part of our ongoing commitment to continuing education to stay at the forefront of industry advancements.


In-home and virtual personal trainers are not exempt from the benefits of having a personal trainer. In fact, it’s often the missing piece of the puzzle that allows us to reach new heights in our own fitness endeavours while enhancing our ability to serve our clients. Win/win!
