Looking For Your Perfect Trainer?

If you’re serious about getting in shape, soon you’ll be spending more time with your personal trainer than your significant other – so you’d better like him. So here are some tips on how to score a a trainer who will pump you up, not stress you out.

Know yourself
First we suggests identifying your needs. Are you looking to lose weight or tone up? Getting ready for a marathon or nursing a knee injury? After you know what you want, you can find a trainer with a specialty that suits you.
Shop around
You have to look for a personal trainer like you’re looking for a job – interview them. Meet several, check references and ask them for sample mini-workouts. Let them know you’re in the interview phase so they’ll understand if you choose someone else.
Looks count
Look for a trainer with a body type you want to have. If you want to be long and lean, don’t go for a musclehead. Choosing a trainer with the look you want means they know how to achieve it.
Background check
You don’t want to turn your body over to someone who took a weekend course on the Internet. Make sure your trainer is certified by American Fitness Professionals & Associates (AFPA) or the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). Certification is very important.
Love connection
Finding a trainer can be like finding a date; it should be full of good chemistry. Quality communication is imperative. If it’s not working out, don’t be afraid to break up. There are plenty of trainers in the sea.
Note: Look around your gym—you can quickly tell the good trainers from the bad by watching where they put their attention. If it’s not entirely on the client, there’s a problem. Inattention is, of course, dangerous. Your trainer is there to spot you, and catch those momentary lapses of form that can lead to injury. But it goes beyond that—if a trainer is inattentive, why should you think he or she has your best interests in mind? Good trainers aren’t just working toward a paycheck—they believe in what they do, and in their clients. Your trainer needs to be 100 percent dedicated to you and your goals.
