Research recently published on the affects of supervision (having a trainer present) on muscle adaptation (strength gain) showed that people who had more supervision during a workout, gained more muscle/strength than those who had less supervision (less trainer feedback) during the same workout routine.
The mind can either be your biggest ally or enemy in the gym. Having someone else present, keeping you accountable for your efforts, can help your brain give the rest of your body an extra push during a workout (therefore giving you greater gains when compared to doing a workout by yourself). When left alone, the mind and body are lazy and not nearly motivated enough to do the work that they are capable of. The psychological component of having someone else present can push you to do more instead of settling for a sub par effort because of lack of motivation and integrity.
