Trainer Tuesday- What should I look for in choosing a personal trainer?
Feb 25, 2014
There are numerous factors to consider when looking for a personal trainer. Qualifications, personality, and training style are three of the most important. You want a trainer who can show qualifications such a certification through a nationally recognized program. There is no perfect personality for a trainer to have, however it is important that you as a client feel comfortable with the trainer and his or her personality. A third important factor is training style. If you don't enjoy a particular trainers style or approach to exercise the sessions could easily feel like more of a chore than a fun workout!-Keith
When choosing a personal trainer, there are many things you should look for. Education and deciding if it is someone you can work with are two of them. Education is an important quality to look for in a trainer because this will give you the assurance that you are working with a professional who has the knowledge and skills to provide you with a safe and effective workout. Deciding if it is someone who you can work with is another factor. Some people like to exercise in the morning, some in the evening. Can the personal trainer accommodate your schedule? Some people do better working with a trainer of the same sex; others prefer the opposite sex. The personal trainer who fits your style is the one to hire because that is the professional who will help you achieve the best results. - Sara
