When pursuing a weight loss goal, it is important to stay motivated and consistent in order to achieve success. If you’re just starting out, it can be difficult to know what changes to your workouts and diet will be most beneficial and yield the best results. For some, a personal trainer can help give the extra push, but how do know if that person is right for you?


1. They are certified: Someone who exhibits a high level of expertise and has a vast knowledge of their field will help you reach your goals much more effectively than someone who is simply in good shape. A trainer should have received their certification through accredited organizations like The American Council on Exercise (ACE), the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) or the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).


2. They are fit themselves: A trainer’s body is their business card; in general, a fit trainer is synonymous with a helpful one. If they apply the same passion and dedication to you as they did to themselves, you have tangible evidence of your future results.


3. They personalize your experience: They’re called “personal” trainers for a reason! Every client is different, and a good trainer understands your past and present efforts, tailoring your exercise and diet plans to meet your future objectives.


4. They are a great communicator: In order to stay up-to-date on your progress and foster a genuine connection with you, a good trainer will return phone calls and emails promptly, offer honest but constructive feedback, and establish a rapport with you that is not strictly of a business nature. Having an open dialogue about your struggles, stresses and setbacks can help your trainer to offer suggestions on how to persist through life’s difficulties, and not only will you lose a few pounds, but you could also gain a friend!


If you’re serious about your fitness goals, consider hiring a personal trainer. Finding a mentor that is professional, knowledgeable and a great motivator can be the difference between losing a couple of pounds and truly transforming your life.
