Hiring a personal trainer is sometimes unpredictable. Just as you would do research and ask questions about your doctor, the same precautions should be done before hiring a personal trainer. When you ask for a personal trainer at your local gym or health club, be sure to investigate which will be most compatible with your goals and personality. Instead of training with whichever trainer the front desk assigns you, ask about each trainer's specialties and read his or her bio before you commit to any one trainer. Perhaps the most paramount step to take before hiring a trainer is to make sure they are qualified. Some gyms give their trainers an in-house certification but do not require a nationally recognized accreditation. Regardless of the trainer you choose, ensure they are certified by a national organization and are CPR/AED certified.
