FIND A PERSONAL TRAINER
Top Tips to Help you Find a Personal Trainer That's Right for You
Choosing a personal fitness coach is a big decision to make. After all, this person is going to become very familiar with your body and push you harder than you think is possible. You have to be able to work together on your goals while maintaining a workable relationship. Although I believe the workouts I teach are great for a wide range of people, your goals may be different. Here are my top tips to help you find a personal trainer that's right for you.
1. Credentials and Experience
The person you work with should be certified to train you on the workout you want. Whether it's yoga, pilates, or weight training, they need to have the credentials to back it up. This also shows you that the person is passionate about what they teach, and they'll be there for you for the long haul. That's why I'm an L1 CrossFit Certificate Holder. I absolutely love helping people achieve their fitness goals, so I took the time to earn my certificate so you know I'm serious about your health.
2. Personality and Philosophy
Some people work best under pressure. Some people want gentle guidance. Whichever type of person you are, make sure you choose a trainer who will work with you. In my gym, I love to foster a supportive, caring environment. When we work out together, we are here to cheer each other on and help us each achieve our individual goals. The goal for one person's body won't be the same for the person next to them, but they can still encourage each other during group exercise.
3. Your Personal Needs
The kind of workout you're looking for will greatly influence the trainer you choose. For example, if you want to become a world-class marathoner, I'm probably not your first choice. But if you're looking to build strength, endurance, and maybe even lose weight, we could be great together.
You'll also have to keep in mind your personal preferences for cost, availability, and location. You don't want to choose a trainer you can only afford to see for the next six months, one who only offers classes from 9 am to 4 pm if you work during those hours, or one that is too far out of the way. You won't be motivated to visit them and you won't see results.
I sincerely hope that I'm the right female personal trainer for you. If you have questions or would like to talk in more detail about what I offer, please don't hesitate to give me a call and find out if we're the right fit!
