How to Choose a Personal Trainer

In order for a personal trainer to design a safe and effective workout, he or she should have education and experience. Being certified through a nationally recognized certifying agency insures that the trainer is getting continuing education. Here are a few additional tips:

  • Find a trainer that is right for you. Some people like to exercise in the morning, some in the evening. Will the personal trainer you're talking to accommodate your schedule? What about the trainer's gender? Some people do better working with a trainer of the same sex; others prefer the opposite sex.
  • Interview more than one. Ask questions about his or her style of training and experience with any particular injuries or special problems that may need to be addressed.
  • The personal trainer you select should motivate you by positive, not negative, reinforcement.
  • Ask about Group Training sessions. Grab a friend or 2, and take advantage of a group training program. They offer the same expert training at a reduced and shared cost.
