Why Do You Need A Bodybuilding/Fitness Coach?

By Nipun Liyanage

Training for optimal results takes more science than many understand and/or are willing to accept. It is up to you to treat your training as an investment. This will require you to recognize mistakes swiftly and alter your training efficiently to continue progressing. It's better to have someone knowledgeable and experienced provide an external frame of reference to make the necessary changes to your programmes.

A coach can supervise every aspect of your bodybuilding/fitness journey. It helps tremendously to have a coach take the guess work out of your programmes completely and put you on the right path.

Invest in a good coach to build a solid foundation and to reach your peak potential and maximise your investments in terms of money and time such as money spent on gym memberships, food, training time and efforts etc. Without proper guidance, you will simply be wasting your precious time and money and going nowhere. You will simply be spinning your wheels and getting mediocre results, if any, and ultimately losing your fitness motivation and give it up for good.

Please remember there is an opportunity cost for everything and if you decide to invest time and money in bodybuilding/fitness, you owe it to yourself to make the best of it and milk the maximum benefits. Otherwise, simply ‘going to gym’ or ‘doing something’ will amount to a lot of wasted time over the years, which can be a significant part of your life, which can be used for more productive purposes such as concentrating on your business, family life and kids etc. Therefore, do it right or don’t do it at all.

Obviously and as mentioned above, the guidance of a proper consultant is not just for competitive bodybuilders/athletes but for anyone who wishes to get the most out of their time and efforts invested in bodybuilding/fitness.

Furthermore, just because one gets some results does not necessarily mean that what they are doing or results they get are optimal.

Finally an athlete/person should only have a coach if they have made a serious personal commitment to improve.

Here Is Just A Very Short List Of Why You Need A Coach:
  • A wide array of resources.
  • A different perspective.
  • A coach will give you small pointers based on years of experience.
  • A coach saves you time and money and gets you faster results.
  • Having a coach saves you years of stress, pain and frustration.
  • Accountability.
  • Motivation.
  • Focus.
  • Challenge.
  • A coach will tell it like it is etc.


  • The best in the world have a coach. So why wouldn’t you?
