7 Tips For Choosing The Right Personal Trainer

As the name suggests, a personal trainer needs to be exactly that. They’re there to help you meet your fitness goals in a ‘personalised’ and professional way. It’s therefore crucial that you find someone who you can trust and connect with.

Just like when searching for a driving instructor, one person’s ideal personal trainer might not be yours. 

Here are seven tips to help you find the perfect person for your needs:

  1. The first place to start is to look at your particular goals. 

Are you looking to get in shape, gain muscle, or improve at your favourite sport or activity? Perhaps you simply wish to improve your overall health? Exercise is vital for both our physical and mental wellbeing. That’s why we have training programmes that focus on helping people work their way back to optimal health. 

Not everyone wants to achieve the same goals when they set out. Knowing your objectives in detail will help you find a trainer that meets your specifications. 

NRG Training not only delivers first-class personal training but nutrition support. This is a key part of getting into shape and staying there. 

  1. Decide if you wish to train one-on-one or in a group. 

NRG Personal Training is ideal for those who want either individual training or wish to meet a small, exclusive group. Many people find training in a group of people more motivating. With an option of private, semi-private and semi exclusive training, it’s easy to find the right fit for your needs. 

  1. Look at a personal trainer’s credentials and certifications.

NRG Personal Training will always connect you with professionals who have the right qualifications and level of experience. During a consultation, you’re welcome to ask about their experience working with clients who share similar objectives. Our personal trainers have a diverse skill set.

  1. Find someone who specialises in your area.

Perhaps you’re looking for someone that specialises in weight loss, strength training or rehabilitation. We can find you a personal trainer who is aligned with your goals. All our personal trainers will always track your progress through regular assessments, so you’ll be provided with accurate feedback. 

  1. Look for someone you can communicate with. 

You want someone you can communicate with comfortably, who can motivate and support you effectively. An initial consultation or interview is the best time to get a sense of their personality and communication style.

  1. Find out more about their availability and location. 

Choosing the right personal trainer is also about logistics. Obviously, when using a personal trainer you want someone who’s available when you are. It’s important to discuss which hours they work, how long you want the sessions to be, and how frequently you’ll be training together. 

When it comes to getting fit, consistency is vital for progress. If you’re not using a personal trainer online, they obviously need to be close to your home or workplace. 

Based in Oakwood, our personal trainers are ideal if you’re looking to connect in person in this area. 

  1. Ensure that a training package suits your budget. 

Thanks to the cost of living crisis, more of us are tightening our belts. Personal training is known for being expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. NRG Personal Training offers a range of packages to suit all kinds of budgets. We are always transparent and upfront about all costs involved.
