When you consider the qualities of a personal trainer, what do you look for? Is it muscle mass, experience or certifications? Do you equate physique with a trainer’s qualification? The fitness industry is unregulated, so it is a hit or miss as to the service value that you receive. Here are a few things to look for when using our tools to select a QuiGig personal trainer.
Take the Time to Read Customer Feedback
Did you know that QuiGig provides feedback for each job a client performs? That way, you have access to reputable data that gives you real feedback whether it is positive or negative. You can also ask a trainer for references as well. You can also ask about day-to-day activities. Most trainers will either offer a free mini-class or volunteer to let you watch a live session. You need to ensure that the trainer has a similar temperament.
Research to Get an Understanding of Pay Grade
Investing in a trainer is a major decision even if you do not yet realize it. Getting into shape may take you a few months or years depending on your goals. For trainers with high rates, you typically get more experience, elevated education levels, and an abundance of certifications that will be more beneficial than someone who charges a low rate and comes to each class underprepared. You should always weigh value against experience to find someone with a balance of value and personal worth.
What Qualifications Do You Want a Trainer to Possess?
Do you need someone for rehabilitation services after an injury? Do you want someone who has training certifications like ACSM, ACE, ISSA, NASM and NSCA? The more that you know about the qualifications you want a trainer to have, the easier it will be when searching. You should consider location, hours of accessibility, and relatability to ensure that the trainer you choose has not only the credentials but also the right personality.
Do You Want a Trainer Specialty Training Experience?
Some people want a six-pack, some want a firmer rear end while others want to work out for muscle mass. Finding someone who specializes in problem areas will be a significant benefit because they already have the knowledge and skills to set in place a workout regimen that will get your body in shape quickly.
Do Not Consider Aesthetics a Primary Component
Many people judge experience to body type and end up regretting it. Do not use aesthetics alone to base your financial decision on. Just because someone knows how to exercise does not mean he or she knows how to teach someone else how to do it.
Consider your choice an important one as it involves your health and your emotional well-being. Taking a little extra time to find out more about a personal trainer’s academic and professional goals will help you decide on which one best has the capabilities to help you achieve yours. It also helps you stay focused on your fitness and health.
