Finding the Best Personal Trainer for You

Finding the Best Personal Trainer for You

Joan Schnorf

Searching for the best personal trainer in town? Perhaps it is best to follow the advice that he or she will ultimately offer in regards to achieving your ideal weight:

Take your time.

Physical fitness is a commitment, and hopefully one that you will pursue indefinitely. Sure, you can flit from studio to studio in search of a quicker – or cheaper – fix, but as Hunter S. Thompson observed, “Anything worth doing is worth doing right.”

It may sound amusing, but the personal training relationship is a deeply intimate one, if for no other reason than it involves the shaping of your body. The best personal trainer for you should be someone with whom you can share an open dialogue about your personal preferences and goals, and your hopes and dreams. Find this person first, and the rest will likely fall into place.

When meeting with a prospective personal trainer, make sure to disclose any special conditions you may have, particularly medical. Certain workouts and strenuous activity could prove hazardous to pre-existing medical conditions. A certified professional will be able to tailor an exercise routine to your precise needs, and a trainer who is able to show you proof of accreditation is definitely a step in the right direction.

If narrowing your list of options seems overwhelming – or if you don’t even know where to begin – seek out recommendations. Poll family and friends, and friends of friends, and don’t be afraid to query the cashiers and customers at your favorite fitness or health food shops. People who have found previous success are often eager to share their knowledge about professionals who love their job.

Another quote to live by? “Location, location, location.” The best personal trainer for you is likely not going to require a four hour trek upstate. Accessibility is essential to establish both a steady rapport and workout routine.
