Personal Trainer, what to look for when choosing a fitness trainer

Things to think about when looking for a personal Trainer, fitness coach. There are several things that you should do when shopping for a personal trainer. First ask if they are certified by a Nationally recognized body, I'm certified by AMFPT(American Fitness Personal Trainer) and when you meet, don't be afraid to ask to check credentials, really the instructor should show without having to be asked. Other Nationally recognized certification bodies are ACE, ISSA, NCSF, NCCA, NAFC.You will want to have a meeting, this can either be done over the phone or in person. Trust your gut reaction to the conversation. The potential trainer should ask for your goals and be able to readily give a strategy for working on your goals. Also a good idea is ask if this is there full time job or just a side line. How long have they been practicing, where do they train, will they come to you. What is the persons background, sports and other recreational activities. For instance in my Case the other part of what I do is Teach Tennis, and am certified by the USPTA.Does the person work with me like you or do they specialize in something special.Hope this Blog will give you something to think about when looking to choose a personal Trainer.
