How to Find the Right Personal Trainer?

By Greggers254 @LeeGregory254

This is a question that i get asked a lot. So many people out there make the right decision and opt to get a trainer rather than go it alone, but, who should you choose?
There are a ton of gyms out there that employ a ton of trainers, so finding one will be hard. The more ‘elite’ gyms (ones with a hefty price tag!) will only employ top trainers, so that is a safe bet, but you will be handing over a fair amount of cash. The gyms that don’t look very good (outside or inside) sometimes can be a gamble. Some gyms that look ‘basic’ and not very appealing, are just plain bad, that's a fact. But! Some gyms like that are part of a growing trend, known as ‘old school gyms’. John Cena (wwe superstar) goes to a gym that revolves around the basics, looks basic, has the basic, must have equipment (no fancy vibration plates in there!) and they also only take the best trainers. You can’t go too wrong with the big names – virgin active for example. Once you have found a gym, that’s when you can find the right trainer. You are free to meet with trainers before actually signing anything or exchanging any money. You want to talk to a trainer thoroughly before paying out for sessions. The main things you should ask a trainer are – Find out his past, how did he/she get into the fitness industry, the experience he/she has, the different types of people he/she has worked with, his methods of training, what does he/she specialise in. Those things are way more important than simply asking what his/her price is. By asking that information, you will get a real good idea of who that trainer is, as a person and also a personal trainer.A few things to avoid! If a trainer always talks in the most ‘technical’ way, i personally wouldn't go near him/her. Many trainers love to show off, and that just is not an attractive trait. The best trainers can connect with anyone, no matter how small or big their understanding of fitness is. The ‘average Joe’ who joins a gym will not know all of the muscles, bones, different types of contractions, how the body works on the inside etc etc etc. So if a trainer starts spilling out all of those things, he/she is simply trying to show off and ‘shove it in your face’ all of what they know. As i said, the best trainers can connect with anyone. At the end of the day, their MAIN job is to get you in shape, not give you lessons on human body. Some people would like to learn that stuff, and that's okay, you can simply ask. But personally, those are the trainers that people tend to avoid. Lastly, the most important thing of all when selecting a trainer, is to find one you like, you feel comfortable around, and one that motivates you.
