How to find a sensitive and qualified instructor? What should an expert mentor know and be able to do? And is it absolutely necessary? We will tell you how to choose a good personal trainer and why Internet mentors are bad.
First, let’s understand who a fitness instructor is. It is important to understand that he is not only an inflated “uncle” (optionally, “aunt”), but a certified specialist with knowledge in the fields of physiology, anatomy, nutrition.
Why do I need a trainer?
In fact, a trainer is really necessary sometimes to motivate or discipline yourself, sometimes as a teacher. Even if you know and know everything, this is not a reason to refuse individual lessons. Progress will be faster and more tangible if you are supported by a specialist.
If you are a beginner, the answer is obvious. You can visit the room accompanied only by a coach. Improper exercise is a direct path to injury. And the technique and rules of nutrition before and after lessons, all that matters if you are ready to achieve a result. The use of the online workout program comes perfect there.
You can, of course, study various Internet sources or even consult online trainers, which are now very popular, but this will not replace live communication with a competent specialist. In addition, an Internet guru will not cure you with much weight and will not provide first aid for dizziness or injury, it will not help. Hence, the right fitness instructor is at least a quarter of the case.
How to choose a fitness instructor?
Contrary to popular belief, it is not necessary to look at a figure. Externally, a coach may be ideal, but that still doesn’t mean anything and, believe me, it doesn’t guarantee anything. So away prejudice.
Only logic, only cold calculation
We do not recommend dealing with fat and sweaty people, we only advise you not to focus on what may prove to be secondary (especially if the instructor is not so young). The exception is when you only need motivation (and everything else you already know and know how to do). So you can make the choice more meticulously (if you want Apollo, look for it).
How to choose a good trainer, what to look for?
Take a closer look at the trainers in the gym, known to you as the most qualified, as well as the most pleasant for you, purely human. Since communication can be quite close and long, this is important. Select one or two from the total mass.
Ask the administrator about them, other club members (the latter is preferable). Pay attention to how long the coach works in this club, how long, where he comes from. At the reception you can inquire about it.
Interested in the actual results of the instructor
If you are lucky enough to meet those who have already lost weight under the guidance of this trainer, make sure you know them.
Don’t hesitate to be interested in a personal conversation. Ask about anything that might be useful to you. Education, work experience, program you usually work on, etc. Remember, you can ask any relevant questions.
