Five Tips to Consider When Choosing a Personal Trainer

  1. Contemplate your goals and select a trainer that will educate, support, and coach you to ensure your success.
    If you are trying to lose fat and gain muscle; choose a trainer that has a proven track record in reshaping bodies.
  2. Certifications and Degrees – What does it take to call yourself a personal trainer?
    Not Much! Beware of weekend or three-day certifications. You can even become a trainer for only about five hundred bucks. This field is very unregulated and your “trainer” may be doing more harm than good or worse, seriously injure you. Find a trainer who has a degree in a health/fitness-related field and/or a certification from ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine), NSCA (National Sports and Conditioning Association), or Cooper Institute. These are recognized to be the best certifications in the industry. I often look for these certifications in trainers that I hire. If they do not have one of these certifications then they go through intense training with me to learn my Energize Method of Training that incorporates scientific principles to get our clients results quickly and safely.
  3. Ask if they are certified in CPR
  4. Consider their personality!
    You have to be able to at least get along with your trainer. Also, any good/competent trainer with any longevity in the business will have a website. Go check them out for a digital “first impression”.
  5. Set up a meeting or consultation.
    Nothing beats a face-to-face visit. Give us a call or text at 901-466-6242.
