Find out how to select the best trainer so you can reach your fitness goals faster.
Quick and Dirty Tip #5: Consistency. During your consultation, ask your trainer about their plans. Are they in this as a quick college internship? Are they planning on moving soon? Do they frequently travel out of town? If your goal is 2 years of consistent fat loss, you don’t want to have to keep switching trainers, which can disrupt your progress and motivation. In the same way, you’ll also want a trainer who is consistently able to show up at the appointed days and times.
Just like choosing a doctor, you’ll want to be careful when choosing a personal trainer. Ask your friends who have worked with a trainer, check the local Angie’s List listing, speak with other members of the gym or employees at the gym’s front desk about which personal trainer they think would be best for you, and do your due diligence. With the right personal trainer, you can achieve your fitness goals more quickly and safely.
By the way, if you actually want to become a personal trainer, you may be interested to know that I’ve written a book about how to be a personal trainer, and the business of fitness. I also have a free blog and podcast for fitness professionals. You can access the book, the blog and podcast at http://www.trainfortopdollar.com.
