Fat Burning Tips For The Wise: Do Your Homework Before Hiring A Personal Trainer


A lot of people ask me if they should hire a personal trainer. Is it worth the money? Will they get the results they are expecting?

Well, this is a tricky question because the answer is, it all depends. First of all, it depends on the person. Are they really motivated to lose weight? Will they be honest in their nutritional choices and follow the trainer’s advice? But there is another really, really important question to ask, and that is “WHO is the trainer?”

The problem with personal trainers is, they are every where. Any gym you go to has personal trainers, the internet is teeming with them. Also, there are several institutions that offer certification classes to potential trainers, but only a handful of these are nationally accredited institutions-and that fact alone makes a HUGE difference in the QUALITY of training and preparation a trainer receives.

Fitness trainers are supposed to be professionals that (along with your doctor’s o.k) can create and guide you through a fitness program that is right for you. Their job is more than just providing you with fat burning tips and an occasional “good job” during a session. They are supposed to help keep you on course and teach you how to properly perform fitness exercises appropriate for your fitness level and aspirations. They should help keep you stimulated and inspired through your fitness journey.

But then again, as with other entities included in the fitness world, not all fitness trainers are created equal. They may vary from the different trainings that they have, the health education they have acquired, and the skills that they have learned.

That’s why it is extremely important to consider some factors that will determine if a certain fitness trainer is right for you. Here is what you should know before selecting a trainer:

1. Certification: Like any item or product, the quality is sometimes measured and determined through the certification that goes with it.

A good trainer will do more than just throw fat burning tips your way. He or she should be able to track your progress an help you keep focused among other things.

So, before you choose your fitness trainer, it is important to verify if the trainer is duly certified by aa accredited institution. It is also best to choose a trainer that is CPR certified and trained in emergency first aid.

2. Educational background/Trainings: Even though it is not necessary, trainers who have acquired additional education connected with health or any other related field will definitely have an edge over the others.

3. Does the trainer give you the attention you need and deserve? A good fitness trainer should be able to give his or her undivided attention to a client during a paid session. In this way, the trainer will be able to focus more on the details that need attention and immediate considerations. If you have paid for group sessions, be sure the trainer provides adequate attention to each client and is experienced in dealing with more than one client at a time.

4. Does the trainer know how to track a clients progress? Is he or she organized and prepared for sessions? It is best to choose a fitness trainer that knows how to track his or her client’s progress as far as fitness is concerned. In this way, the trainer will be able to generate new activities and trainings designated for a particular result for a specific client. Also as in any job, the trainer should be presentable and well-organized. This is a good reflection of his or her ability to effectively conduct a session.

5. What kind of personality does the trainer have? We are all differnt and we are all motivated by different forms of training. Some people need to hear more encouraging words to keep moving while others love the “boot camp” style of training. Whatever you prefer, be sure that the trainer is effectively communicating whether or not you are headed in the right direction. You will be spending quite a bit of one-on-one time with your trainer so be sure it is someone who is compatible with your personality while still giving you the “tough love” you need to reach your fitness goals.

Having a personal trainer can be a huge asset so long as he or she is the right match for you AND possesses the necessary knowledge, education, and experience to help you achieve your goals. So, one of the most important fat burning tips I can give you is: do your homework BEFORE hiring a trainer and be sure he or she is right for you.
