If you are thinking of hiring a personal trainer, follow these 4 steps.
STEP #1: MAKE A COMMITMENT. The longer you procrastinate and resist taking action the faster you will lose lean muscle, continue to put on more body fat, lose energy, exacerbate postural issues and increase inflammation which is only guaranteeing an an earlier death.
STEP #2: SET A GOAL. Do you want a more lean, toned, fit healthy and attractive body? Do you want to lose 20 lbs? Do you want more energy and to stave off disease? Do you want to prevent an early death? The more specific the goal, the increased likelihood of success in achieving that goal.
STEP #3: ASK QUESTIONS. The way you learn is to ask specific questions and listen carefully to the answers. Here are eight tough questions to ask a personal trainer before you decide to work with them:
1. How long have you been a personal trainer?
2. What certifications do you have?
3. How often should I train?
4. What will my training program look like?
5. Are you an employee or a subcontractor?
6. Do you have liability insurance?
7. Do you have references of successful clients?
STEP #4: SET UP AN INITIAL CONSULT. Once you’re satisfied that you’re working with an honest, competent professional, set up an initial consult to see how it feels working with the personal trainer. By following these four steps, you’ll gain all the information you need to make an informed, intelligent decision. If you want a quick, cheap personal trainer then a quick search on the internet can help you get quick, cheap results.
