This weeks tip is: Where to find the best Personal Trainer for you.
Finding the best Personal Trainer isn’t easy. It’s a process that takes a lot of research and leg work to find the best possible match for your needs. Most people start with a Google search. This can be a good first step but going through all of the listings can be time consuming and overwhelming.
You should try to define what it is you want from a Personal Trainer before you start your search. Male or female? Private sessions or group sessions? Circuit training gym or custom design every session? Answering these questions can help narrow down the search process. Every Personal Trainer has a different concept about how the service should be and you want to find someone who has a vision that matches with what you are searching for. A Crossfit gym is not the place for a shy person with no exercise experience or someone who is very self conscience about their body.
Once you have found a listing to match your needs try to set up a tour or consultation to see if you feel good about the trainers personality and the place you will be trained at. Many trainers work in garage gyms or empty warehouses that may be a turn off for you. If it’s not air conditioned it’s probably going to be very uncomfortable in the summer. After spending time with the Personal Trainer you should feel that they are a strong leader who can help you achieve your goals. If not, keep looking. If you can’t get along with your Personal Trainer it will never work. Some Personal Trainers are like drill instructors at boot camp. Some spend too much time chatting away the hour. It’s best to find someone who has a good personality and a communication style that works for you. A client should look up to their Personal Trainer as a role model of healthy living. The trainer should practice what they preach and be good at the exercises and techniques. Some trainers get lazy and stop training or eating clean and they end up looking very unfit. It’s hard to take advice from someone who doesn’t follow it themselves.
At this point you should be ready to get started. Give it your all and make the most of the opportunity!
