The final part in our series of training for a triathlon in the UAE looking at the best training and exercise methods as well as providing great nutrition tips.
For men and women alike personal training at home in Dubai is becoming a more popular option when it comes to health and fitness goals.
There are many reasons why at home fitness coaching in Dubai works, in this article we’ll be taking a look at the main reasons and benefits of choosing home personal training in your local area.
We all know that exercise provides physical health benefits but according to a recent study in Science Daily doing moderate exercise for just 45 minutes 2 to 3 times a week can significantly reduce the number of ‘off days’ people have. By ‘off days’ we mean days when your mental health is not as great as it could be.
Personal training at home in Dubai provides the perfect solution for many people because it allows you to fit your fitness coaching program in around your other commitments, whether that’s work, personal or family.
Many of us have problems with commitment when it comes to starting and sticking with a fitness program. We have great intentions but life gets in the way and we end up back where we started. Using the services of a male or female personal trainer at home will definitely help you stay on track.
You might think that hiring a fitness coach in Dubai is beyond your price range but because the fitness industry is growing so much competition for services increases, this means you can always find a great deal if you shop around.
All PT’s will also offer packages throughout the year helping you save even more money when compared to ongoing gym membership fees.
So what does personal training at home in Dubai mean and how can it benefit you?
If you are completely new to fitness and exercise or need a male or female PT in Dubai for a specialist need, at home training is a great choice. What are the main reasons men and women choose to train at home rather than going to the gym?
1. Comfortable surroundings
Going to the gym can be a bit daunting for many people. It’s not hard to understand why. Sometimes the gym can feel intimidating if you have never exercised before.
Training at home in Dubai allows you to work out with your coach in private, in the comfort of your home without distractions or prying eyes.
It’s a fact that when you feel more comfortable in your training environment you are far more likely to be motivated to reach your fitness goals.
When you choose to take your PT sessions at home in Dubai your trainer can schedule a convenient time to visit your home.
This means no travel time to the gym or travel home, no worrying about other commitments that might interfere with your gym time.
2. One client means undivided attention
Yes, you can pay an additional fee at the gym for PT services. But, being in a gym environment can mean distractions for you and even your trainer.
When a trainer visits you at home you get their full attention for ‘all’ of the session.
They will focus on your exercise methods making sure you are doing an exercise correctly to prevent injury, monitor your progress and even change aspects of your program if they feel you’re not progressing as well as you could.
Because you are training at home with a fitness coach you get to ask them questions too which you might feel embarrassed to do in a gym.
Training with a professional fitness coach means you are paying for their time and you expect to see results from your investment.
Home coaching means you can spend more time with the trainer which ultimately leads to better results in the short and long term.
3. You don’t need a gym at home
It’s a mistake to think you need the same bulky equipment that can be found in a gym to get a good workout at home.
If your building has a gym that’s great but it’s definitely not required for at home personal training in Dubai.
Think of a personal trainer as being like a tradesman – you wouldn’t expect someone to fit a new kitchen without the required tools.
The same applies to your coach. They will provide any necessary training kit and can also give you advice about smaller items of exercise equipment that might be useful when you are not training with them.
So many items around the home can also be adapted to be used in your fitness program. In fact, your body itself is great tool and can provide you with bodyweight training exercises, aerobics for cardio fitness, flexibility and stretching and much more.
So, don’t be put off if you think you need to invest in training equipment because the opposite is often true.
4. No more excuses – you’re accountable
According to a report by the ISSA (International Sports Sciences Association) goal setting can help you achieve long term success in your fitness program because you will feel more motivated, you’ll see your progress and a goal gives you something to work towards.
Of course having a goal is only achievable if you push yourself and have the motivation you need to achieve it.
If you are new to training and exercise it can be far too easy to make excuses about visiting the gym.
You end up convincing yourself that something else is more important and as the weeks go by the excuses become more and more numerous.
Hiring a personal trainer at home in Dubai does go a long way to eliminating those excuses, you set a time for your workouts, your trainer arrives at your home which means it would be more difficult for you to cancel the session and make excuses not to train.
Remember, personal training and the cost of it is an investment in your health and fitness. Having paid for a program you will definitely think twice before making up an excuse for not doing your workouts at home.
5. Personal training can be cheaper than you might think
Gone are the days when personal training in Dubai was seen as a luxury. Because the PT market in Dubai is fairly saturated you can get some great deals on your home personal training package.
Most personal trainers will be eager to offer you the best deal and the price goes down the more sessions you book in advance.
This can really help to actually save you money when you consider how pricey gym fees can be.
And, on top of that a gym will charge you extra if you want to hire a member of staff to provide your coaching on a 1-2-1 basis.
6. No need to hire a separate diet, meal planning or nutrition coach
In the past people thought if you were overweight you ate less, if you wanted to build muscle you ate more protein, if you were skinny you ate more fatty foods.
As our understanding of nutrition advanced we now know that it’s about much more than just the types of food you eat.
Healthy eating needs to be seen as a lifestyle change or choice. Fad diets come and go like a summer breeze but getting back to basics where diet and nutrition is concerned is such a confusing topic for many people.
Who can you trust to give you the right advice?
Thankfully you don’t need to visit an expensive nutrition clinic or pay for a separate diet plan (that is not guaranteed to work anyway) because many male and female personal trainers in Dubai will also be qualified and experienced in providing top quality nutrition advice.
There’s no denying the fact that nutrition really does go hand in hand with a good fitness training program. A good PT understands this and will create a customised nutrition program to match your goals. For example if weight loss in Dubai is your goal your PT program would include the best exercises for weight loss ‘and’ a structured diet plan to accompany it.
You don’t need to starve yourself or fill up on the wrong types of food but only a coach qualified in nutrition can provide the best advice.
Many PT’s and sports fitness coaches can also help with family meal planning – helping you and your family live better through changing your diet.
If you have a fitness goal in Dubai then training at home with a professional fitness coach could be right for you.
There are no restrictions on who can train at home so unless your goal requires access to specialist equipment in a gym home PT is perfect for anyone.
Men, women, seniors and even children can take their workout sessions in the comfort of their own home at their own pace.
For adults home PT can really help you manage your time better. You simply book a day and time with your fitness coach and they will come to you. More more hassle when it comes to travelling to the gym
Seniors and the elderly also benefit from home personal training. Some seniors who have mobility problems or are recovering from illness might find it hard to get to a gym regularly. A senior fitness personal training specialist can visit them at home and bring any necessary training equipment with them.
Mobile PT’s are also a great option for special population, pre and post natal women, children and those with disabilities.
This really depends on you. If you feel you need 100% attention to your fitness goals then 1-2-1 coaching is the way to go.
However, in general when a personal trainer visits you at home for your coaching it can be provided in multiple ways.
As mentioned before. Most personal fitness goals can easily be accomplished at home. This is because PT’s in Dubai have experience in many different training methods.
What this means is that you simply need to decide what your goal is and then find a training who can offer experience you need to achieve that goal.
It’s easy to do with the UAE Personal Trainers website because trainers are listed in different categories depending on their training experience.
Below we have created some example personal training goals that can easily be done at home.
Weight loss is big business in Dubai. At the UAE Personal Trainers website we get far more enquiries about weight loss coaching than anything else.
Whether you have recently put on a few pounds or have suffered with obesity for years, training at home in Dubai is a great option.
There are many fad diets and fad fitness programs out there but a program specifically created for you and you alone is far more likely to work.
Your body is different from everyone else’s and personal trainers know this. This is why they work closely with you where exercise methods and diets are concerned – no one size fits all.
When you follow a customised fitness program you’ll soon see results that were impossible to achieve on your own.
A great male of female PT in Dubai will also educate you on making the right choices when it comes to food and nutrition which ultimately will help you long term.
Training for weight loss at home in Dubai often includes:
Cardio workouts, HIIT Training, Aerobics workouts, kickboxing for fitness, swimming, meal planning advice, step aerobics, cycling, stair climbing and more.
We hear the term ‘toning’ a lot in the fitness industry but what does that mean?
Body toning basically means doing appropriate exercises which tighten the muscles giving you a more toned or defined look.
Fat loss training is often an important part of body toning programs because when you lose fat the muscles tend to show more.
With that in mind it’s important to find a personal trainer for at home fitness who has specialist knowledge of not only body toning exercises but also diet and nutrition too.
Body toning programs are great when it comes to improving your overall physique which in turn can really improve your confidence.
There are many different training and exercise methods for toning and slimming, these include:
Upper and lower body workouts with dumbbells, stretching and flexibility, body weight training, pullups, pushups, plank for core (abs) development, resistance band training, pilates for muscle toning and much more.
If you want a great six pack, bigger biceps or even a v shaped back then muscle and strength fitness programs are best for you.
You don’t really need big and bulky training equipment at home either. You can build muscles and increase your strength with smaller items of fitness equipment that your mobile personal trainer will provide.
What are good exercises for building muscle and strength?
Bodyweight training, upper and lower body workouts with dumbbells or kettlebells, door frame pull-ups, press-ups, resistance band workouts with varying intensity, plank.
It used to be said in some cultures that pregnant women should basically do nothing but rest during their pregnancy. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Medical professionals in the UAE agree that unless ladies have known issues during their prenatal stage of pregnancy they can exercise safely under the supervision of a specialist pregnancy personal trainer in Dubai.
Pre and post natal training is ideal for women at home. You can train in the privacy of your own home, safe in the knowledge that you are keeping yourself, and in turn your baby fit.
Prenatal training needs to be done with a professional. There are many reasons for this.
Firstly the kind of exercises you can safely do during each trimester does change.
Secondly, training alone when you are pregnant is not advisable unless you have trained in the past.
A PT in Dubai will closely monitor you to make sure you are training safely and to prevent any injury to you or your baby.
Ultimately, taking moderate exercise when pregnant will help you keep in shape and can also help you recover your physique faster during the postnatal period.
Exercises and workouts you can safely do at home in Dubai when you are pregnant include:
Yoga, Pilates, Gentle Cardio Workouts, Stretching & Flexibility, Swimming, Light Strength Training, Pelvic Floor Exercises.

Kickboxing and martial arts training can also easily be provided at home for both adults and kids. You don’t need a boxing ring or gym to learn basic moves or even improve your contact sports fitness.
Yoga classes in Dubai are now more popular than ever. This is due to the fact that more people now realise the health benefits that yoga can provide. Not only for physical fitness but mental health too.
If taking a group yoga isn’t right for you then you can hire a professional yoga coach near you in Dubai to provide at home training.
At home teachers can tailor a yoga program for your needs, whether that is yoga for flexibility, yoga for weight loss or yoga for relaxation.
Many coaches can also provide Yogic diets which when combined with yoga provide great weight management results.

As well as creating a customised workout program they can also provide you with expert instruction on how to safely use your gym equipment.
