Having a personal trainer is much different than having a personal trainer that works.
The latter is about selecting the right person to fit your exercise, health and fitness needs without sacrificing exactly what you expect from having a professional at your fingertips.
The problem when it comes to choosing a personal trainer most of you don't treat the process with enough specificity and sincerity. When you join a gym and have hiring a personal trainer in your sights, you shouldn't necessarily take the person the salesperson assigns to you but rather inquire more specifically to find a trainer that fits your needs directly.
The typical protocol is you join the gym and then get handed over to a trainer sight unseen, at least that is the way it has been for years within this industry. Some health clubs have changed that approach but most of the big box chains still treat incoming members more like cattle than individuals, thus leaving you with a trainer that isn't quite the right fit.
When selecting a personal trainer, you want to find out a little more about not only their experience but the types of clients they already have, what their demeanor is during a session and if they're truly interested in helping you succeed or only are after making a sizable commission thanks to you purchasing one training package after another.
