Questions to Ask a Personal Trainer

Taking on a personal trainer for the first time can actually be quite an intimidating task – particularly if unaware of what questions should be asked to a given candidate. Of course, there is no specific blueprint for what makes the perfect personal trainer, but when considering the richmond park Personal Trainers options available it is easy to ensure a strong and beneficial partnership by asking the following before hiring:

1 – Do you have references?

Most will leave this question until the end of the selection process, but given its importance there really is little reason not to get it out of the way first. Any reputable Kensington personal trainers will of course have glowing references by the bucket-load, meaning that those unwilling or unable to offer client backing may be wise to avoid.

2 – How are you certified?

There are thousands of ways to become a certified personal trainer and to say that all methods are not equal in their demands would be an understatement. In order to assess the value of any qualifications the trainer up for consideration possesses, use a little common sense combined with a good dose of Google searching

3 – What is your training mantra/theory?

This is where personal preference really comes into the equation as what works for one will not work for another. To put it into a working example, wimbledon Personal Trainers with an aggressive “No Pain, No Gain” mantra will hardly be the best choice for a shy, retiring type just looking for a mild workout. Likewise, there’s no point employing a trainer with a “Why Rush?” attitude if results are needed and needed yesterday!

4 – Do you include dietary advice?

This usually comes as standard, but never for one minute take it for granted and expect a personal trainer to double up as a dietician. Depending on the reason for taking on the trainer and the surrounding circumstances, it can be of pivotal importance to take a look at current eating and drinking habits in order to ensure the exercise regime has any impact. If the trainer knows little about nutrition, try elsewhere.
