================== ARTICLE START ==================
Imagine stepping into the gym for the first time in your life.
There are so many machines and gadgets. What do you do first?
Is this one safe? Are you using it right? There are so many
questions to ask about trying to get physically fit as well.
How much should you push yourself? How much is too much?
A personal trainer is someone who steps in and will coach you
through your weight loss regime. What is it that a personal
trainer does exactly?
Finding Out What A Personal Trainer Does Is Step Number One
Whenever I want to find out what it is that a personal trainer
does, I simply visit the website or look at an advertisement of
another personal trainer. From one location that is located in
California, I have found the following list to be exactly what
a personal trainer does.
Coaching workouts that intensify gradually at different stages
Working to increase improvement function of the body from
walking and running, etc.
Keeping a client up to date on nutrition
Practices safe stretching and exercise techniques
Helps to increase muscle tone and metabolism in the body
Minimize the possibility of injury
Increase the client�s self-confidence and put good �stress� to
Eliminate laziness and excuses from stopping the client from
getting what they want
What is it that Clients Ask When Looking for a Personal
One that I have found says that finding the best personal
trainer is to simply ask a lot of questions. If you ask
questions of your personal trainer and he or she does not know
the answer or doesn�t give an answer you are particularly happy
with, a client should simply walk away.
If you are looking to become a personal trainer, expect to hear
questions. What is your background? How long have you been doing
this? How are you involved in the industry? Do you stay
competitive in the industry? What is the education level that
you have? Did you get certified in a weekend or are you
university educated? Are you continuing to educate yourself on
the latest health techniques? Insurance? CPR? First Aid?
If you are able to answer these questions to a client, you�ll
be much more likely to sign a client. Above all, personal
trainer will make a customer state his or her reasonable goals
and set a plan to reach those goal in a healthy and
constructive learning environment that will let the client keep
the regime for years to come, even if they stop using the
What is it That Separates a Good Personal Trainer from a Bad
Like when you shop for anything else, there are good trainers
and there are bad personal trainers, but what is the
A good personal trainer would tell you that you should shop
around and find the right trainer for you. A lot of corporate
gym trainers have sales quotas, do you really think they�re
primary interest is your health? Most of them have minimal
training and are more of a sales person than a trainer.
If you are looking to become a personal trainer, what is it you
should do first? Try to take course on exercise, fitness and
health. If you also stay involved personally in the body
building industry, you�re also staying on top of the
competition. Commitment is the key; you have to be committed,
as your clients certainly will not be. They will want to quit
and give excuses. You can�t let them.
Above all, a personal trainer really cares about the client.
You can�t simply treat them like another paycheck. A customer
has personal goals and needs and is asking you to help them
along a path they can�t walk on their own. What a personal
trainer is, is not a salesman or a drill sergeant, a personal
trainer is a coach, a mentor and a partner on a road to a goal.
