5 Tips for Hiring a Personal Trainer (1/5)

You wouldn’t expect to play piano well without an instructor and you wouldn’t expect to swim very far if you never took a swimming lesson, would you?

If you are going to the gym and not seeing results, maybe you should consider hiring a Personal Trainer.

If you are thinking of hiring a Personal Trainer, here are 5 things to consider before you do so.

1. Certifications
First and foremost, find out if your trainer to be is certified. A certified personal trainer will have more knowledge of anatomy, physiology, special conditions and will be less likely to prescribe an exercise or routine that may cause you injury or harm.

There are thousands of different personal trainer certifications, but the top three are: American Council on Exercise (ACE), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). Research all three online and see which will be the best fit for you.
