What to Ask Your Personal Trainer
Before you book your sessions with a personal trainer, here are some vital questions you should ask them before sealing the deal.
1. Enquire about their education and qualifications
A lot of "trainers" out there may know how to build their own physique, but without the proper training and experience they won't know how to help individuals reach their desired goals. The most important factor in considering a personal trainer is to insure that he/she is qualified.
Most of the reputable health clubs will only employ trainers who have a qualification, but it is always a good idea to double check this information.
2. Ensure they have a first aid or CPR qualification
A good trainer should be trained in the basic levels of first aid and/or CPR. If you happen to need first aid, you'll feel more at ease knowing that your trainer will know what to do in the event of an emergency.
3. Find out about specialty
Most trainers cover a wide range of fitness spectrums. However, if weight loss is your goal ensure your trainer is a specialist in this field. If your goal is to gain muscle and enter a body building competition, find a trainer who has this type of fitness background or experience.
4. Client portfolio
An experienced trainer should have a client portfolio with before and after pictures of their current and past clients. Not all trainers have photos on hand, but if you ask them, they will be able to tell you about success stories that their clients have experienced while training with them.
