As a personal trainer myself who has been successful in the fitness industry for over 25 years, I found that by really listening to what people want is key. Fitness is not a one size fits all. Anybody can put a dumbbell in your hand and say give me 15 reps. There is a real fitness to fitness training. And that finess comes with experience.
You want a trainer with at least 5 years experience, who is current in there certifications, CPR certified and who is fully bonded and insured. Don’t be afraid to ask for a reference or two. You may want to talk to someone who has used this particular trainer to see if they had success while training with that trainer.
A good fitness professional will start out by doing a full fitness evaluation so that they have a roadmap as to how to design a program specifically for you. Every fitness trainer has a unique style in how they come to there fitness evaluation conclusions with their clients. I use a Body Age Assessment computer that gives me a read out of a client’s weight, BMI, Body Fat %, Visceral Fat%, Muscle strength, RMR (resting metabolic rate) and finally your real body age which is how your aging from the inside out. Keep in mind visceral fat and body fat are two very different types of fat and needs different types of exercise.
Knowledge in nutrition is very important as it plays a key role in your fitness program. Hiring a fitness trainer who is also certified as a health coach is a winning combo.
Lastly, you want the person you choose as your fitness coach/trainer to have a great upbeat and motivating personality. An upbeat motivating trainer who help you achieve your fitness goals!
