Questions to Ask a Personal Trainer During Consultation

From hormones to neurons, exercise makes a big difference in your health. Having a personal trainer to help motivate you and bring new exercise ideas to your routine could be the extra push you need to succeed. Before you invest your time and money into a personal trainer, you need to know exactly what and who you’re investing in. Your first consultation is the perfect situation to ask your new potential trainer the questions you truly want to know. Here are just a few important questions to ask your personal trainer during consultation.

What Are Your Qualifications?

This may seem like an obvious question, but during a consultation it’s also one of the most overlooked questions. A social media profile with tons of workout and gym selfies does not qualify as a well-trained personal trainer. A trainer that appears to be in excellent shape doesn’t correlate with their ability to get results for clients. It’s essential to find a personal trainer who specializes in the exact area of fitness you’re looking for, for example, sports performance or weight loss. To become a persona trained in the United States, you are required to have these qualifications:

  • Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing – Gym.
  • Level 2 Diploma in Health, Fitness, and Exercise Instruction.
  • Level 2 Diploma in Instructing Exercise and Fitness.

What Type of Exercises Will I Be Performing?

Every personal trainer has a preferred approach and preferences for certain types of exercises and equipment. While this is great, you always need someone who can customize exercises to you in order to meet your individual needs and goals.

What Should I Do Between Sessions?

How often you meet with a personal trainer is based on your preferences and package. More than likely, you’ll want to train between meetings with your personal trainer. If this is the case, then our experts can help create a plan for what to do. The exercise you do between sessions should complement the work you’re doing with your trainer.
