When interviewing for a personal trainer, just because they look the part doesn’t mean they know what they are doing. Ask questions. If the conversation begins with a sales pitch for a weight-loss shake or other product-line, end the conversation and look for someone else. A great trainer should be listening to YOU, answering your questions and explaining how their program will give you the results you are seeking. Look for a knowledgeable trainer that uses an evidence-based exercise protocol, and NOT some new, unproven “looks fun” program. The trainer you hire should conduct their business in a professional manner. They should be on time for their appointments, should not cancel them with out at least offering another trainer or another time that would work for you. Remember “ you” are hiring “them”. They need to earn their fees.
