Finding a Personal Fitness Trainer

They're popular and they get results, but making a good match takes effort.

Asking Questions continued...

 

One of the most important things to consider is whether you and your trainer are a good match, according to Klinge and Hagerman. The relationship between a personal fitness trainer and a client is not a friendship, but since you'll be spending a few hours a week with a person, make sure it's someone you like.

 

"People should really take their time in choosing a personal trainer," says Hagerman. "You should make sure that you feel comfortable with him or her and that you're not afraid to ask questions. Because if there isn't a good rapport there, you're just not going to want to go back to the gym. And that ruins the whole point."
