      ================== 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
      encourage

      Eliminate laziness and excuses from stopping the client from
      getting what they want

      What is it that Clients Ask When Looking for a Personal
      Trainer?
      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
      personal trainer.

      What is it That Separates a Good Personal Trainer from a Bad
      One?
      Like when you shop for anything else, there are good trainers
      and there are bad personal trainers, but what is the
      difference?
      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.
