What you need to know to choose a Personal Trainer

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on What you need to know to choose a Personal Trainer

Choosing a Personal Trainer is not something you want to leave to chance. He’s the person who will help you optimize your body, mind and overall health. In other words, he takes on a huge responsibility. Then it’s only natural you choose somebody you can depend upon, a professional who is capable of handling this responsibility?

But how do you find this person?

Here are a couple pointers to help you pick the right one:

  • Specialization. First and foremost, he needs to have the specific skills you are looking for. If you want to prepare for a skiing trip, ask if the trainer is an experienced skier. Are you looking to lose weight? Check if he is not only knowledgeable on exercise protocols but also nutrition. Even though every trainer should have enough general knowledge to help the average client, you’ll get a higher quality service when you pick a specialist in the field you’re looking for. I
  • Experience. As with any profession, experience is invaluable. You can’t expect a beginning Personal Trainer to have the same knowledge and skill as one who’s been working for over a decade. This doesn’t necessarily mean the junior Trainer can’t help you, but you better ask in-depth questions first to establish the reach of his capabilities. A more experienced Trainer knows how to motivate you and how to help you reach your goals, no matter how specific they are. This knowledge and experience usually carries a slightly higher price tag but the much improved effectiveness of his services are more than worth it.

  • References. If he does a good job, he’ll be happy to provide you with several references. Obviously, privacy is crucial and a large number of clients will prefer to stay anonymous. However, he should be able to give you a list of references to check upon. Contact at least two or three of these to establish his bona fides. Even though this doesn’t offer a guarantee, it will give you a clearer picture of what you can expect. Based on this additional information, you can then decide whether you want to start working together.
  • Personality. Even if he has the required technical skills and experience, this still doesn’t automatically translate into a positive experience for you. You also have to hit it off and connect on a personal level. Some Personal Trainers are exuberant and perhaps too enthusiastic whereas others are more reserved and factual. You have to decide which personality type you’re most comfortable with. This is important because you’ll spend a lot of one-on-one time with him. If you don’t enjoy spending time with a Trainer, then you won’t want to work with him long term and finding somebody else is probably better.
