Choosing a Personal Trainer

Los Angeles, CA – 3/24/2014

Research has shown that working out with a partner is an excellent wayto stay motivated and make progress on fitness goals.  Many choose friends as partners, but otherseek out professional support in the form of a personal trainer.  When deciding to hire a trainer to assist inreaching fitness goals, here are several things to consider.

No matter what the fitness goal is, a trainer should be credentialedthrough a trusted organization to assure that they can help a person reachtheir goals safely and effectively.  TheNational Commissions for Certifying Agencies is the organization in charge ofmaking sure trainers meet certain standards of professionalism andconduct.  Ask a trainer what theircredentials are during the initial hiring process to ensure that theirlegitimate in their chosen profession.

In addition to credentials, trainers should also be asked about theirexperience history.  How long have theybeen training? What kinds of training have they done (weight loss, weight gain,and athletic performance) and how do they handle injuries when theyhappen?  These are important questions toconsider when choosing a trainer for an individual fitness goal.  Styles can also be considered as well.  Some trainers have additional certificationsin yoga, or specific exercises such as TRX or Crossfit style workouts.  Consider these when making and setting goalsto work on with a chosen fitness professional.

Much of the choice will come down to cost, which should be discussed inearly meetings, but ti’s also important to gauge training style with individualpersonalities.  A person seeking atrainer should know how they want to be motivated, and what kind of approachthey want their trainer to take with them. Do they want encouraging support with lots of hand-holding and guidance,or do they need a firm hand to guide and push them beyond what they believetheir body capable of?  The more atrainer knows what a person expects from them, the better the team can worktogether to accomplish fitness goals.

Hiring a trainer is a big decision, and one well worth some thought onwhat a person desires and what certain trainers can offer them.  Working together, any fitness or wellnessgoal is possible with support, guidance, and effort from both parties.
