These days, fitness trainers are literally “a dime a dozen” – or so it seems. With so many choices available, how can you decide on the one who is best suited for you? Well, here are some of the factors to consider if you’re looking for individual sessions:
· Facilities and equipment available
· Trainer experience with similar clients
· Personal chemistry
At a minimum, every certified fitness trainer should tell you that they are focused on your specific goals, and that they will take your injury history and any physical limitations into consideration. In addition, your personal safety is paramount. Go no further if these three criteria are not met. So what else is important in making the right choice?
At Table2Mat, we think there are three other principles which are truly difference-makers when it comes to improving your health and wellness.
Principle #1: Nutrition and physical fitness are strongly inter-related. The right diet can make a substantial difference in your overall fitness level!
Principle 2: Adaptability is essential. A good trainer will modify and adjust your workouts based on the progress you are achieving.
Principle 3: Exercise and fun are NOT mutually exclusive. It goes without saying that people are much more likely to adhere to a workout regimen if they are enjoying themselves in the process.
"So I just want folks who are thinking of having Chad as a trainer understand what you would be getting;
One of the most genuine, positive, impressive and professional people I have had the pleasure over the last 7+ years of working with in training and as a friend (oh yea, no way you don’t become a good friend). I started with little expectation and a note from my Cardiologist that I was headed for a cardiac crash. Chad saved my life. I am a healthy 61 year old guy that is not looking over my shoulder for a health scare. He’s the best. End of story."
